Jets trying to get underachieving receiver Stephen Hill to better use his speed

The Stephen Hill Saga is well-known to Jets fans by now. A big, raw talent drafted in the 2012 second round, Hill's first two seasons were plagued by injuries and a general lack of production: 45 catches, four touchdowns, certain games in which he simply seemed to vanish. The Jets have thus far stopped short of labeling the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Hill a bust, but they did make...

Jets WR Coach: Too Soon To Call Stephen Hill A Bust

Stephen Hill has compiled statistics of 45 catches for 594 yards and four touchdowns.   That’s a decent first half of the NFL season for some of the more talented wideouts in the NFL.   Those eye popping numbers from Hill are based off two lackluster seasons in the NFL, and wouldn’t be expected from a highly touted second round pick.

Cimini has previously mentioned that Wilson could be nearing the end of his time with the Jets, so this isn’t a huge surprise. Wilson, 26, was taken with the No. 29 overall pick of the 2010...

Found Us a Leprechaun: Patriots 29, Jets 26 OT

After the Patriots shook off the stink of their first two losses with a 45-point 2nd half in Buffalo, I titled the game recap: "You make your own luck".   Today, the Patriots came within a hair of a loss to the New York Jets a home, and required a kick-off return for a touchdown, a safety, a dropped pass from a wide receiver with no one around him for at least seven yards...

The New York Jets drafted wide receiver Stephen Hill with the 43rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft with big hopes that he would turn into a playmaker.

New York Jets – Where Eric Decker Will Help

It is not a mystery that the New York Jets struggled at the wide receiver position in 2013. Their problems in the passing game were a unit wide failure. Geno Smith was inconsistent and inaccurate. The offensive line struggled in pass protection and had ugly growing pains from Brian Winters. At tight end, they received mediocre overall play. However, the play of the receivers seemed...

Jadeveon Clowney and the Physical Specimen Gamble

Last week, Jadeveon Clowney made an absolute mockery of the 40-yard dash at the combine, further adding to the “physical freak,” narrative that gets recycled every year. And while a 6'6”, 274-l.b man running a 4.53 is absolutely terrifying, it also doesn't really tell us that much beyond the fact that he'd be a really good collegiate sprinter. The NFL Draft is...

Forgive me if I'm hesitant to believe that USC wideout Marqise Lee can deliver in the pros. I'm cheering for him and not against him.
