Can we start a thread on Hill vs. Zeigler? I mean, it's not like Hill is lighting the world on fire and we should automatically assume that he will be one of the top 5 WR's, or even make this team.
Maybe the 6.0 yards per catch in his last three games (8 catches for 48 yards) is sexy to some people, but am I missing something here?
At least Battle has proven year-in, year-out that he can play the game. What has Hill done to warrant a free pass on the roster next season?
LOL. What a joke. Let's see here:
Arnaz Battle's first 2 years:
Jason Hill's first 2 years:
Oh yea, add in the facts that Hill does not have chronic knee issues and he is 5 years younger and his salary is cheaper.
Let's see your mindless unintelligent response to this one. Oh wait, aren't you the one to say draft Carriker instead of PWillie? Oh yea, Parys Haralson will never do anything either right?
Bottomline: If you respected and wished Battle well, you would hope he catches on with another team instead of being a 5th 6th WR on ours.
Let's see...Battle came on board in 2003 and sat behind Terrell Owens, Tai Streets (who never really panned out) and Brandon Llyodd (pre-alligator arms).
Hill came on board and we had who? Yeah that's about what I thought.
Not to mention that Battle was drafted 6th and Hill in the early 3rd? Expectations must be different for the first couple of years.
So going back to current production..when Battle is healthy, he's one of our best WRs.
As for Carriker...I was on that bandwagon too..but don't forget..it wasn't a Carriker for Willis deal...we all agreed that willis was the superior player...it was Carriker and David harris. Carriker has been playing NT..so his stats aren't pretty..he would have been a DE for us. and Harris has been a very solid ILB for the Jets.
If the choice were mine to make and I could make it with hindsight, I'd probably go Willis...but it'd still take some thought.
