    started a topic Jernigan

    Jernigan

    Just wanted to see what people's take on him is...I saw Randle caught a pass and got some PT...Anyone know what the deal with Jernigan is ?...I was hoping he would become the 3rd reciever this year...never thought it would be Barden, I know he has only had one game and did most of it with loose coverage but it was fun to see...anyway...Is jernigan slow in learning the offense?

    I completely agree...thought they would have learned their lesson with Sinorice...

    Wilson is returning kick offs. Brown is running/blocking better than Wilson at the moment. Wilson will develop at his own pace. The fact that Wilson is trusted to field kicks offs would indicate Coughlin's taste buds are fine.

    Here are the snap counts in the Panthers' game for wide receivers and running backs, not including special teams plays


    Cruz 63 snaps (88%)
    Brown 54 snaps (78%)
    Randle 27 snaps (39%)
    Wilson and Jernigan 4 snaps (6%)

    Virtually every one not inactive got on the field.

    Yes good point another indictment would be the giants drafting Rueben Randle in the second round ...........I don't think he will be in the giants plans long term

    Patience is a virtue and Reese has it in spades

    How is 57 catches, 822 yards and 5 TD's in year two practically nothing?...Who could forget his 10 catch 150 yard performance in week 2 against the Cowboys that season.....I honestly thought he was going to be a star after that game

    As for JJ it's never a good omen when a player regresses in his role rather then progressing. The guys at the absolute bottom of the WR depth chart after also loosing his job on special teams....Even with hixon out with a concussion, it was Randle who took over the PR duties

    He's a backup slot receiver at best.

    Actually, he had his second best season to date--in TDs, yards, receptions--during his second year.

    It means I was being sarcastic.

    I have never been a fan of 5'8" receivers. Would be great if he could contribute as a KR/PR....
