New York City + a loosey goosey head coach + a wide receiver with a part time career as a celebrity.... what could possibly go wrong?
This is a decent signing, but no, Decker isn't putting the fear of God into NFL secondaries, particularly when he doesn't have Peyton Manning throwing to him. However, given the money the Jets have to spend, and given the horrific state of the receiving corps, he is definitely an upgrade.
Just pretend we are the pats and we signed him....brilliant move!!! Stole him from Denver!!! Great contract!!! Blah blah blah!!!
Decker instantly is our best wr and going to catch a ton of passes for us. Great pick up.
Just because Deckers runs a 4.6 he's not a problem for the defense?
I got news for you, not every team has a Darrelle Revis at CB,lol.
The dude runs a 4.60 & is 6'-3" and way over 200Lbs, has great hands, uses his body like a TE, has been great in the redzone, and has just made Jeremy Kerley & a WR draftees life that much easier!
The Jets are actually going to have true NFL quality starting receivers next year! Let's say we draft Lee. Or let's say we draft Ebron & move up in the 2nd for Mathews. Decker- Kerley- Mathews- Ebron!
Just that lineup alone would keep defenses from crunching the box like they did last year. So let's add MJD as a 3rd down back.
Ivory will be even more beastly if MM can keep teams from putting 8-9 guys in the box.
Decker will be Genos best friend in those situations. I can't wait for the draft!
Decker is a better receiver than anything the Pats will trot out there next year.
Also we're getting slammed by the dorks at the NFL Network for not making a run for Mevis and signing Decker who "Revis will shutdown" when we play the *Pats. And worst of all on NFL Network, it's "Patriots week". What's up with that? Did I miss Steelers week? They have more rings.
It basically comes down to this: the Jets signed him so there's gotta something wrong with him and there's no such thing as a good Jets move...simple as that
They are faulting Decker for coming here saying he could have gotten the same money with another team. Also saying he went from Manning to garbage throwing him the ball. When they were talking about Geno other times they say he didn't have any weapons and had a good arm. Did people forget Manning himself said he picked Denver because they had good receivers.

Just some free advice to the Jets, they should also sign Edelman to pair with Decker, he is better than Kerly, you can find plays for him in the open field with screens, and quick passes, and he is the best punt returner in the league. I think the same money they just paid Decker will work with Julian, and the Niners will not go that high.
First, not "everyone" is doubting him.
Second, most I've read are not "doubting" him at all, more wondering if he'll be as productive with worst-in-NFL Geno Smith as he was with best-in-NFL Peyton Manning.
Do you need a trash can for the vomit? Since you're so sick?Im sick of everyone saying he can't be a #1.
Overreaction 101: create a straw man (y everyone doubt decker!) then puff it down and puff up your chest.
Relax, most folks not masturbating furiously the moment Decker was signed are simply unsure. And given Decker hasn;t played a singler snap with our team as yet, unsure is probably the most appropriate way to be.
Decker was the highest rated free agent in a widely acknowledged weak class of free agents. We're better with Decker and without Holmes on paper, undoubtedly.
Beyond that, neither you nor I know how Decker will play.
The you of years ago would have posted a thread just lik ethis when the jets aquired Neil O'Donnell.
I.e. relax, we'll see when we see.
Did Decker arrive at the Super Bowl yet?
I blame Oh Bamma
Decker IS totally cute tho, rite?? I can't wait to DVR his E series and learn all about his living habits! OMG YAY!!! <3

OP, to answer your question. People are doubting Decker because there are a lot of ignorant morons on this board.
We didn't follow the roadmap to multiple Super Bowl titles that is signing Jeremy Maclin, drafting a slow WR at 18 and signing Josh McCown to learn a new playbook and go back to being the scrub he was the first 11 years of his career.
