I'm SO tired of people blaming Jarrett's shortcomings on Jake. Jake had one horrible season. Not three. Hurney said it himself in his interview on WFNZ: it's up to him (Jarrett) if he starts.
That means one thing and one thing only, he has yet to earn the trust of the coaching staff and the QB (no trust means you WILL lock in on other targets). If he had come to practice prepared and ready to go...Jake would have felt more comfortable throwing his way and Davidson would've designed more plays going to DJ. That didn't happen. The kid just doesn't have it and may never find it.
Don't blame his lack of playing time on Jake. That's retarded.
The oppurtunities that jarrett has been givin he has capitalized on them, but obviously u haven't noticed that. Jake is to blame bc for the past 3 yrs (other thaan the '07 season that he was out due to injury) he has only focused on 1 receiver and that is smitty. Jarrett doesn't have to be a burner he can make the catch in traffic apparantly our FO doesn't notice that. And so what if his first TD came 3 yrs into his career, he'd have many more if we used him in the redzone. But that's not the style of football our organization plays when we get into the redzone we run the ball down the other teams throat. Jarrett won't be a highlight reel player for long TDs but when it comes to spectacular catches he's the man. That's all its gotta take for blind fans to notice a players ability is to see it on a highlight reel. And that's a damn shame.
