Sign this guyyyy
I would much rather draft a guy in the 2nd round then sign DHB. If we can get Tampas first this year I would go with Tavon Austin all day.
Given the fact the no QB on our roster will complete better than 52% of their passes I think having DHB and Hill as homerun threats is a plus. We are not going to ground and pound nor are we going to precisely dink and dunk down the field. If we can hit 1-2 big plays a game its worth a shot on DHB, plus I think Hill has upside. Remember he was in an offense run by the poorest O Co-ordinator in the game.
DHB had no say in how early OAK drafted him. Nor the circus that took place for the better part of his first 4 years over there.
He's worth pursuing based on the fact that our team presently has 3 starting WRs, 2 of whom have question marks stitched to their jerseys.
Drafting Stephen Hill in the 2nd round hurt this team in 2012. He couldn't be relied upon. I was personally disappointed with his drops. When you draft a guy that high you expect him to be able to catch the ball. You don't draft developmental players in the 2nd round. That's on Tanny and my personal feelings on Hill was well documented and not well received by all. I went by the numbers and the game film. I don't expect anything out of this kid. I realize he's developing but to sit here and pretend that our WR problems are solved because we have Hill is being a rah rah pom pom homer. I think he can develop, he's a hard worker and he has the desire and a good attitude. However, I'm not going to listen to the optimistic fans try and tell me that I'm wrong about the kid either when his track record in 2012 is what I base my current opinion on. He can change that opinion by being a better NFL WR. But he single handedly cost the Jets 2 or 3 games by dropping passes he should have caught. That's unacceptable. 1 game, I can understand. But having it happen multiple times and then that directly resulting in losses is unacceptable (I say 2 or 3 but honestly it may have been more than that but I just can't remember).
That said, keep searching for WRs and make these guys compete for their jobs. In the end, we really do have a band aid approach at our offensive skill positions. Hill showed flashes early on of his ability to dominate a game. DHB has incredible measurables as well. Kerley is solid. Holmes is an idiot and hopefully Braylon comes back. Not a warm fuzzy feeling at all when the best 2 WRs have been getting injured lately and that could possibly leave us with 1 solid player and 2 completely unreliable options at the WR position. I'm thinking the Jets will most likely bring in another WR via the draft.
--You provide no sense of objectivity in your team's appraisal.
--You support unequivocally every player they sign, trash everyone they cut.
--You talk as though the front office knows what they're doing... yet YOU HAVE THE WORST RECORD IN THE NFL over the last 10 seasons.
Your team stinks, and you're a horrible judge of talent/management. Let me know when you guys have a winning season :cool:
