I don't feel comfortable with people using the word bust and Amaro in any kind of context...

"In offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg’s offense,  Amaro is going to play a vital role.  Playing flexed out and used in motion,  he will create mismatches and put up some big numbers as a rookie."

That's exactly the way I feel about Jace and think he was a bigger need after the Decker signing than another WR during the draft.

@bklyndude I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of a B/R article. There definitely lots of info to take away from it. So excited to see how Geno progesses this season.

@Hanknaples It's o.k if he doesn't excel this year, as long as he contribute more then the tight ends we had last year, we should be o.k, he should, or he can open up stuff for other receivers, or in 2 tight end sets open stuff up for Cumby or vice versa, We need 1000 yards from Decker, 700 from Amaro, 400 from Cumby, If hill can get us 800 yards that would be awesome, I believe he can do it, That's 3000 yards right there, then you get around 500 from our backfield, Kerley should get us some yards and who ever else, and we're easily seeing 4000 plus yards in the air, we can easily get 1200 plus yards on the ground, and were set.  Amaro doesn't have to have a huge year or even be an OROY candidate for us to have a successful offense this year.

@Hanknaples 

With that thinking,  isn't school still out on "ALL" rookies ?

The point being made is he was extremely accomplished during his college career as a guy with really good hands.  I am assuming those skills will transfer to the NFL and it's just a matter of how much of an impact player he will become.

PS. And Brendan stop ganging up with all the "LIKES" on every contrarian comment.....You don't need to START copying TSJC,,,you are better than that !!!


So, when Brendan "likes" a "contrarian" comment, he's copying me?


That's funny, since I've never EVER intentionally clicked on the "like" button and have no history of doing so.

@Hanknaples I liked a comment that I agreed with. 


What you said applies to every rookie, so using it as a criticism against Amaro is pointless.

Mind and Body are Two separate enteties that must work completely in Synch.....and when they don't there WILL be problems !!

Such is the problem with Amaro !!

I think you are insane,  and I'm not kidding..............

@tsjc68 @Hanknaples Okay, Sir Likes-a-lot. We might as well change the button so instead of saying 'Like' is says 'tsjc'!

@Brendan @Hanknaples The irony is that rookie TEs tend to have more success than rookie WRs.  Last year, 4 rookie TEs had more than 400 yards receiving.  And, last year wasn't exactly a banner year for TEs.

He hasn't played a game in the NFL and you are dreaming up all of the problems he is going to have,  that's just crazy.

@Hanknaples Nope, you're trolling. EVERY rookie has problems processing the NFL game initially. This is not a phenomenon that plagues only Jets players.

@Hanknaples @bklyndude 

All rookies take time to adjust to the NFL game and it's speed,  not just Jace Amaro. 

You are writing him off after OTA's.  Do you realize that is nuts !!!

You haven't watched him play a pre-season game yet or a regular season NFL game.

@Hanknaples @bklyndude 

Not every rookie will succeed,  but not everyone will be a bust. 

Please give Amaro a chance to play in an NFL game before you write him off completely. Adios.
