EDIT: This also shows that Rex didn't have as much influence over the roster as people here claim.

Rex only takes credit for guys that turn into superstars. The rest he didn't want to pick..

This is it for Hill. One more shot, if he can't step up then he's done.
There's no question Rex didn't want Hill. He was surprisingly vocal about it right after the pick was made.
I'm sure he wanted a defensive player. It's Rex. He was d-lineman and corners with just about every pick.

That you rewrote.
You know, the reasoning you used to think that Rex loved the Hill pick.
That would make you the retard.
Only a moron with out an ounce of sense would reach for that idiotic balls in the mouth line. Thats about as stupid and childish as it gets, thats all you have?
I apologize for being so childish. You come off very mature you asswipe. Your sig is a perfect example, just like the crap you write.
Who would be dumb enough to even think a headcoach would bash a 2nd round pick that hasn't even appeared in a game? Do you have any common sense whatsoever? Who'd be dumb enough to think he was trashing the Hill pick and trash his own boss (Tanny), the front office and the entire scouting staff when the kid hasn't even appeared in a game?ŽI love the Jets defense and it should keep them in most games. But New York seems to think it has enough playmakers on offense and I just don't see it. In training camp, when I asked him how he knew rookie second-round receiver Stephen Hill was ready to contribute early, Ryan gave me a very honest, but curious answer.
"Well, nothing told me he would (contribute),'' Ryan said. "Nothing. When I saw the tape (of his collegiate play) I was concerned. But (Jets general manager) Mike Tannenbaum and (senior personnel executive) Terry Bradway and all our scouts were adamant about this guy. They were adamant that this guy can do it. He can run all these routes, he had good hands and he's got 4.2 speed at 6-foot-5. He was the guy they all wanted, but honestly, when it came down to it, a wideout? Not my dream pick. But now that we have him, of course, I want to claim him: 'Oh, that was my pick.' But it really wasn't.''
1) Rex didn't say one negative thing about Hill. He was even trying to take credit for the pick if you read his comment.
2) He gets asked whether he thought Hill would be able to contribute early. Anybody with half a brain would have said no. That's what Ryan said. Everyone knew that.
3) He was referring to picking a wideout, period. Not Hill. A wideout. He obviously wanted another defender like he usually does. Had nothing to do with Hill.
4) Ryan handed Tanny the game ball after our W1 win against the Bills a couple days later when Hill scored 2 TD's. Bet you didn't know that either.
Why don't you come up with the comments he made on Gholston and how he'd basically turn Gholston into Suggs? Because it doesn't make your hero look all that good does it now that Gholston is pumping gas somewhere in Arizona.
