The Jets were an interesting offense to watch in 2011. It had some good days, and some really bad days. You can attribute a lot of it, maybe, to coach Schottenheimer, whom we’ve eliminated. What was one thing that the Jets lacked in 2011? The big play. Last season, the Jets had less plays for over 20 yards than Braylon Edwards was responsible for in 2010.

In walks Stephen Hill. He ran a 4.36 second time in the 40 yard dash. He’s got speed. Combine that with a 6’4″ 215 pound frame, and you have a guy that is like a younger, faster, Plaxico Burress.

He has caught everything so far in minicamp. So far he has looked like the steal of the draft, but let’s wait and see how he does against Darrelle Revis and company come training camp. That will be our real barometer as to where exactly Hill is.
