It seemed to be all about what became a priority from week to week last season. The Jets had so many new faces to incorporate into their offensive plans. Keller, Edwards, Holmes, and they still had to keep mainstays like Jerricho Cotchery active in the offense. I'm sure that job wasn't easy.
When the season began, Keller was IMO our most immediate weapon. He put up some gaudy numbers in the first 3 weeks of the season. Had that trend kept up he would have surely made the pro bowl. But when Holmes came back from suspension, it all of a sudden became a priority to get Holmes involved. It appeared as though Keller was deliberately neglected in that effort to get Holmes involved. During that same period Braylon Edwards got neglected and sort of left out of the gameplan also.
All I can say is Keller seems to be a safety outlet whenever the Jets offense is sputtering or in trouble. He always seems to be the guy that gets that first catch and starts the offense moving the ball. I believe he'll make the pro bowl this season because he'll be even more heavily utilized. With so many great players the Jets have at the skill positions, it's pretty much pick your poison when you play them. I believe the guy that will be able to exploit the defense the most is Keller.
yes. launch schitty. they could do like the 80's raiders when they had christensen, cliff branch, barnwell and allen as the primary receivers. christensen put up greeat numbers while branch and barnwell were good. allen had the second most receptions.
i'm not sure what schitty's problem is. he never seems to let guys get the hot hand so we see pass formations that feature the full back or guys like hartsock. makes no sense.
[QUOTE=Il Mostro;3997835]While Keller has had his moments, they have been too few and far between to be even remotely considered a PB caliber player. Is there some magic wand that is going to get him to the that level?[/QUOTE]
1) can consistently hold onto the ball when it hits him in the ends
2) when he has the ball, run forward with it and truck (as opposed to the constant flip and flops he tries to do to get around defenders)
