View Full Version : J.J. to get more looks inside (slot) . . . . Cruuuuuuuuz?

Is this a safety for the Cruz situation? Gilbride says just in case he holds out but it must appear that the negotiations are very far apart.

We need to be prepared in case the contract negotiations go south, or God forbid, Cruz gets hurt. This is what Reese does best: ensure that we are fully able to continually call Next Man Up...

Thanks! That's good to know.

late in the season when it was obivious that hakeem was not going to be 100% the rest of the way JJ got a few looks and had a few nice catches, who knows if he has it or not, but if you got him why not use him?

It's not unusual for holdouts to get hurt shortly after returning because it's easy to 'over do things' after being away from team activities for so long. They won't talk about it, but players know an injury to someone ahead of them can be the best thing for their own career. If sh*t happens, JJ needs to be ready.

JJ needs to learn that spot in case Cruz gets banged up anyway

05-15-2013, 01:48 PM
Lol, JJ is getting time?!?! Thank goodness.

jj sucksWhy?

He should have been in the slot. He has a very hard time beating physical press coverage which is he is far more likely to encounter on the outside. Based on what I saw of him in college, I think he is a run after the catch guy and the slot allows for more open field running.

I never liked him on the outside.

..why is this shocking to you? JJ was drafted to be a slot guy. Should he be getting reps at RB instead?

No crap, he was always in the slot...He was drafted to replace Steve Smith.

jj sucks

What a lame comment. You obviously have weak evaluation skills.

05-16-2013, 11:29 AM
its time for JJ to show something on the field! he hasnt produced anything yet!

Cruzs emergence slowed JJs progress a lot imo!

even with the 4 receivers ahead of him he may still have significant role in this offense or special teams.

What a lame comment. You obviously have weak evaluation skills.was thinking same thing...but I have always been a JJ supporter and still feel that Gilbride just needs to be more creative in using him.....needs to find ways to get him in space
