    no doubt, he'll go tonight. i just hope it's to a contender for his sake!
    We can hope. Gracious, Calvin Johnson got stuck with a series of clunkers pretending to be QBs for what, three years, before he got, of all things, a Georgia product in Matthew Stafford, and the two of them lit up the universe. I can't imagine anything more frustrating than playing a position which makes you totally dependent on somebody else before you can make a play. I hope Hill hits it big tonight.

    Maybe that was NY's rationale: if Hill has a bad habit of dropping passes, it won't matter because Tebow can't throw passes.

    More tid bits:

    Jets gush about Stephen Hill | Georgia Tech

    Tannenbaum shared an interesting detail from his interview with Hill regarding his recruitment to Tech. As presumably a lot of teams did, the Jets asked Hill why a wide receiver would play for a run-oriented offense.

    Tannenbaum: “He said they were initially the only team that had offered him and he had committed to them and later on in the process a few other more traditional passing teams had offered him a scholarship, but he didn’t want to back out on his commitment,” Tannenbaum said. “I thought that was very admirable. Again, that’s not why we took him or why we were interested in him, but that was an interesting anecdote because we were asking him why would you go there knowing you’re a receiver and that they’re going to run the ball.”

    If you’ll remember, Hill committed to Tech in the fall of 2008 (he had actually committed to Central Florida prior to that) before Georgia (Tennessee did, as well) made a late push, which caused Hill to waver before sticking with Tech.
    Not exactly a ringing endorsement for our ability to attract WRs. I didn't hear, "I had seen what Demaryius was able to do in this offense and thought it was a good opportunity." How was he a 4* with no other offers but Central Florida and us...and UGA and UT at the last minute?

    There's no way opposing coaches can use the old line, "it's gonna kill your NFL stock potential." That's the big thing.

    They could, but if kids do their research, they will find they can get drafted at WR in this offense. Perception is reality, no matter what the facts say.

    We have to convince kids to come knowing they won't get the ball thrown their way 15 times a game. I think that is a hurdle in itself.

    Yes, but in the frame of Godfather II, difficult but not impossible. At least they won't get shot at the end.
