He was horrible man. A 6' 5 210 pound WR with 5 TD's. 5 games with 4 receptions or less. Like i said i was very high on him coming into this season, but he was horribly disappointing. I wanted him last season and had us drafting him in one of my mocks had he come out early. This season was a disaster for him. I dont know what happened there, but it was discouraging to say the least.
Okay if 900 yards and 5 TDs is horrible on a team that passes the ball only 40% of the time with a QB hovering above 50% completion, what stats would an AVERAGE year be?
2000 yards? I mean you said 900 is horrible
I wont argue with you, we obviously have differing opinions on him at this time, i know you have been high on him for a good while now, as was i, but i will say he laid some flat out stinkers, and padded his yardage tremendously against two teams, washington and houston. Those two games account for 323 of his total yards.
There is no way anyone can argue that it wasn't a tremendously down season compared to his 2012 and even 2011 campaigns.
Now his average was great, but to get a comparison, Mitch Mathews, in three starts and 9 GP, in extremely limited action for BYU had 23 receptions, 397 yards, a 17.3 average and 4 TD's.
Skyler Ridley had 39 receptions, 469 yrds, a 12.0 average and 2 td's
He had nearly half the production in most statistical categories when compared to his 2012 season.
The big thing that got me off his bandwagon was his production the last three games before the bowl game. He had a great bowl game, but his three games prior to that he had a combined 9 receptions, for 90 yards and 0 TD's. And that was against Idaho State, Notre Dame, and Nevada. A lot of people jumped off his bandwagon in that three game stretch.
He was simply horribly inconsistent. I expect more receptions and more TD's from a guy his size and with his ability and skillset. Thats the type of WR he needs to be to be successful in the NFL. 57 receptions and 5 TD's does not cut it for a guy that as a senior and has been as successful as he has previous seasons.
Now i will say my comments as far a f**king awful and horrible seasons were over exaggerated, but when compared to what the expectations were for him and compared to previous campaigns, its a slight stretch, but not a huge stretch when talking about his senior campaign.
