You like AJ's routes and hands ?! LOL. Hey, you are just being sarcastic right I hope ?! Routes, he didn't even know where to line up on the field as shown in the Cards game. Hands, didn't he drop the only pass Kaep threw him ?
Maybe you should watch some games and learn some football before coming off like a defensive fanboy. AJ runs sharp routes and gets into and out of his breaks in a hurry. Hunter rounds his routes frequently, which can negate his speed against NFl CBs. AJ routinely catches away from his body, using his massive hands to aggressively snatch the ball. I see a lot of bobbles and body balls from Hunter. AJJ played a lot for the University of Illinois. Their games were televised. There are also highlights on YouTube (it's an intenet website). Basing everything you know about a player on very limited snaps during his first pro season is foolish, especially considering that his last preseason game was impressive.
Knowing plays and running routes are very different things, too. He might not have known where to run his route from, on occassion, but that does not mean he can not run the route, or that the route itself would not be disciplined, sharp, and sudden (these things get you separation, which is a good thing).
