    This. It just seem that they jumped on Chaz to end the BE talks. Chaz just has not worked for us yet. Because he missed preseason and keeps getting hurt he has no clue what to do on this O. Sadly though their just wasn't a lot of good options for us.

    I am talking about signing a veteran WR for depth, Tanny did not do so until after Holmes was hurt.

    should hill have caught the ball? yes. but every big time receiver has a drop along the way. truth is, he's extremely young for the league, has raw freakish potential, and is playing way more than he really should be. as someone said above, its a baptism by fire. he'll be fine.

    look at it this way, lee evans, a guy who had multiple thousand yard seasons cost his team a super bowl trip with a drop. it happens. (no I'm not comparing hill to evans, two totally different players, its just an example)

    larry fitzgerald, calvin johnson, brandon marshall, etc all had drops along the way.

    It was a bad drop but Hill consistently gets wide open. He is bright and hard working. He will not be All Pro after 7 games. But I think he can be a Top 10 receiver in the NFL and a true #1 with some experience and probably a good offseason.

    For all the guys who loved BE they should love Hill just as much IMO. Edwards lead the league in drops like 3 of his 1st 5 years in the league. He matured and stopped doing that here. Hill has a lot more raw ability and heart IMO. Once he learns the little things on the field he will be a very good WR.

    Rex, on ESPN NY radio, again says Sunday was Stephen Hill's best gm. "We're raving about this guy" had rookie WR caught ball, Rex said #nyj

    You also can not magically obtain a #1 receiver in the middle of the season.

    This thread is dumb.
    I agree that the drop was ghastly but overall you have to be reasonable. The young dude is developing and will soon be a major weapon. He has shown enough of his potential to keep him involved in the game and is encouraging to say the least.

    Let's not overreact. Kerley has been a revelation for the Jets. What a find.

    I don't think anyone is saying that Hill sucks?
    It wasn't his 1st drop this year, he dropped a TD pass vs Steelers
    I'm really down on Schillens & why the hell were we throwing that slant to Schillens?
    What has this guy done to be the 1st choice on a crucial play in the game?

    Would rather have a stud runningback who also excels at catching passes out of the backfield like Matt Forte, Ray Rice, Arian Foster, Lesean McCoy, Reggie Bush, etc

    kerley is doing all he can and more give him props.
    Who is going to throw the ball to this WR?

    The jagaurs had this same line of thought with Justin Blackmon. Hows that working out?

    It was.

    People are looking at 1 play out of 70 plays or so. He blocked well. Consistently got open and played his ass off. We need to work on getting him and Kerley the ball more.

    We're also raving about Hill if Sanchez makes a decent pass when he was wide open instead of throwing an INT.

    Why is it either or with folks out here!!!!!!

    Couldn't the Jets have obtained a true number 1 WR and drafted Hill??? Is it a rule now that the jets can only have one person catching the ball and obtaining consistent seperation from the defense at a time on the team????

    I say do both...
