Thread: Ricks at WR?

  1. #1
    Ricks is listed at 6'5", 260. look for him to drop 10 pounds and line up in the slot and be used in motion a lot over the middle. he'll be able to play with becht....and maybe with both becht and baker in goal line situations. he's obviously not fast enough to be a traditional WR, but they won't use him as a traditional TE either. They'll basically invent a position for him in certain sets, and it's definitely going to help a lot. He's got good enough hands to make short yardage catches in traffic and big enough to make a difference sealing off the perimiter on sweeps by martin.

    We need that down the middle threat that becht doesnt give us.....I love this pick up..Who knows, he could be the pass catching tightend we so desperately need....Baker has some promise but is still an unknown and Ricks could really help us....Love this pick up big time...

    I could see Ricks splitting out wide in certain W/R sets, with another T/E staying inside, but I think that'll be rare. This is the big target over the middle that we need. It helps the team.

    Hey barton, you think they will bring Ricks into QB when the Jets need a deep out on 3rd and 15?

    Or how about having him line up and kick that game winning 53 yard FG?

    For crying out loud, he was signed by the Jets as a situational TE.

    "so the guy can pretty much do it all" :blink:

    dumbass

    His position is a "catching TE"?

    Besides cathing the football, what else does he do at that position for you to make the claim "he can pretty much do it all"? :blink:

    Dumbass.

    Don&#39;t be so hard on the poor Jet fans, all they have is hope in the off-season and excusses during the season. This year will be no differen&#39;t. :lol: :lol:

    I&#39;m a little confused here.. Ricks was dropped from one of the worst teams in the NFL. A team that really doesn&#39;t have any proven pass catchers. But this guy who was released by the LOWLY LIONS is now a savior at TE for the JETS and everyone is ready to drop Becht. Just don&#39;t get it.. IF it was Bubba Franks I would understand but not this guy (only used Bubba Franks because yesterday everyone talking about him)..

    Its because according most Jet homers, the team never makes a move just to fill a training camp spot, or increase depth. No every move they make is the difference making missing piece of the championship pie.

    ricks provides a better receiving option. baker is probably the odd man out unless herm decides to keep 3 te&#39;s and a long snapper. he didn&#39;t last year. the pats fans hanging out in this thread need to find something else to fill their time with. it&#39;s not our fault we have better websites to visit.

    he was a pro bowl alternate...so he has got to be worth something...they got rid of him because he was making too much money when they have stephen alexander and 2 high first round wide recievers...

    i forgot that no one is cut that belongs on a team

    When you pay a very large portion of your cap at 1 position, you need to keep other positions a bit lower than avg. Lions are way over on the W/R slot, so a logical area to cut back is on a different receiving slot, and that&#39;s either a pass catching back or a T/E. Probably the pass-catching back does not make much &#036;&#036;&#036;&#036;&#036;&#036;&#036;&#036;, so Ricks became the fall guy.

    He&#39;s not the "missing link", but he helps strengthen an area on our team.

    you are such a dumbass. go change your diaper


    his role will be a recieving TE for us, and he can do it all as a recieving TE, meaning he does more then just catch the football you stupid a**hole. he can break tackles, stretch the field, stiff arm and get YAC


    something we haven&#39;t had for a while now. stop feeling like you have to rain on our parade to make yourself feel better, seek counseling.
