I wouldn't expect highlights for backup defensive lineman.
If you could have one player have a Jimmie Ward type breakout year, would you pick Solly or Pettis and why?

For me we need Pettis to produce more than Solly. Yes we lost Buck and Day, but have Kinlaw, DJ, Street and also Taylor inside. WR is the bigger unknown at this point. Pettis is way ahead of Hurd and Brandon A. in his knowledge of the offense also.

To answer your question I'd go with Pettis for the reasons you stated. But I'd like to include Spoon as a choice since the CB group is shallow. Then I'd pick Spoon as the struggling youngster who I'd wish to have a Ward-like breakout year.

Well Pettis is also under contract beyond this season so having him break out not only means you're much better off at WR but you have control over the player beyond his breakout season which gives you more options.

If Solly broke out this year that would be great but odds of us keeping him to reap the rewards would be minuscule unless out of guilt he took a big discount deal to stay here.

Yeah agreed, if Solly broke out, I can't see us paying big money for him anyway...

Its cause he doesn't want anyone stealing his techniques. He's put in a lot of hard work on those.
The Solomon Thomas thread is feeling neglected.
