The idea of Cro taking snaps at WR is a good one. You can only suit up so many active people game day. him taking snaps there may allow the jets to keep an extra TE on the roster game day instead of a wr to help out hunter.
I mean Im not toally annoyed by it...I more annoyed that is comes down to this.
just like im sure you wre annoyed when Edelman started playing corner...
Yea, Holmes and Cromartie are better than Lloyd, Gaffney, Branch and Edleman.
Holmes is better than Lloyd, and it's not even close.
At the age of 31, Lloyd has been in the league for 9 years with a combined 311 receptions, 4,784 receiving yards, 224 first down receptions and 31 TD receptions.
At the age of 28, Holmes has been in the league for 6 years with a combined 338 receptions, 5,235 receiving yards, 256 first down receptions and 34 TD receptions. To go along with a SB MVP.
Holmes over Lloyd and it's not even close.
And did you just mention Edleman?!? You mean the same JAG who played during 11 games last year while putting up a whopping 4 receptions for 34 yards and 0 TD's? Or, the same JAG WR in Edleman who's only put up 11 receptions, 120 receiving yards and 0 TD's over the past two seasons (combined)? Jeremy Kerley over Edelman and it's not even close.
And did you also mention a 31 year old Jabar Gaffney? The same Gaffney who's been in the league for 11 years with A.) Zero 1,000 yard seasons. B.) seasons of only 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 5 and 5 TD seasons? He's the meaning of a JAG. He's never even put up anything more than 68 receptions during a single season, and he's been in the league for 10 years. An unproven rookie in Hill over Gaffney by default.
The only thing the Patriots have over NY in regards to offense are A.) Brady and B.) Welker. That's it.
Gaffney and Edelman are nothing but JAGS. Edelman doesn't even deserve to be called a JAG, he's worse than that (in regards to being a receiver that is).
I was only thinking about the Patriots WR's, and completely forgot about both Gronk and Hernandez. It's no secret that Brady is an all-time great, and because of Brady, he makes their entire offense 'that much better'.
But, with all that said, in regards to the wide receivers... NE's WR's, outside of Welker, aren't that much better (if better at all) when compared to the Jets.
Holmes, Hill and Kerley can compete against Lloyd, Gaffney and Edelman. The only difference? We don't have Brady.
But, it's no secret that an offense featuring Brady, Gronkowski, Welker, Lloyd and Hernandez will have a 10x more explosive passing attack when compared to the Jets.
That's what makes this rivalry so interesting. Our defense up against NE's offense. Over the past 3 years, we've held our own. 3-4 overall (including a postseason victory over NE, eliminating them as the road team in Foxboro).
But to sit here and act as if our offense can compete with NE's offense would be extremely foolish on my behalf. I was only talking about our WR's, and outside of Welker... They have nothing special.
