I know we have a real logjam at WR, but I'm telling you, JJ is going to be a very good and explosive player sooner than later.
Comparing him to Sinorice Moss is just ridiculous. He's got so much more potential.
I know everyone seems to have a man-crush on David Douglas. I like him, too. But Jernigan has a much bigger upside. I was blown away by him in college and thought we hit the lotto when we drafted him.
Yeah, he's mishandled a few punts. Scary. But his risk/reward ratio is so much greater.
Think of it this way...David Douglas returning punts, I believe, is going to be like Phil McConkey. Sure-handed but not really a threat to break the big one at any time.
JJ, on the other hand, may make us squeeze our anuses a little tighter on some punt returns, but I guarantee he will break some huge returns if given the chance. Plus, he's going to be a dangerous weapon in the passing game. Trust me.
What's your risk or comfort level? I'd rather go for the gusto and attack rather than play it safe. Our return game has been too boring and vanilla for too many years.
C'mon, let's give JJ a real shot. Who's with me?
