My Thoughts: Wow we are fast. The defensive backs all have acceleration of 89 or higher. Peyton Manning is amazing as always. Manning, Saturday, Bethea, Addai, Vinatieri, Mathis, Lilja, Brackett, Freeney, Diem, Sanders, Clark, Harrison, and Wayne all have ratings of 90 or higher. Pollak is rated higher than Charlie Johnson, so he is the presumable starter. The most underrated players are Anthony Gonzalez (80) and Clint Session (70). Overall, this will be a fun team to play with. A lot of interceptions will be returned to the house with this secondary.
