The Jets didn't draft a CB at 9 to back up Kyle Wilson.
Oh goodie. I guess that means we can look forward to plenty of bust talk if hes not a pro bowler week 1 of TC, right? Why is it so hard to accept that rookies often need time to adjust? This insistence on expecting every draft choice to be instant impact is just insane
Every single first CB selected in the last ten drafts --
Newman, Hall, Pacman, Tye Hill, Revis, McKelvin, Jenkins, Haden, Peterson, Claiborne --
started at least six games in his first year.
Half of them started at least 13 games. The last two CB's selected first -- Peterson and Claiborne -- started 16 and 15 games respectively.
Miller is a #9 overall pick and the presumptive starter opposite Cromartie.
Good points.But He still needs to earn the spot.The jets have good depth at cb& dennis thurman is demanding on his dbs. 6 games starting is not even half a season.
I hope for the jets sake that he does win the spot. That said he has a long road ahead as both wilson & lankster are very capable #2 corners.
You dont draft a player solely for his rookie year.Most players need time to adjust to the nfl.Contributing early is far more reasonable & important than starting. "He better start cause we drafted him at pick whatever" is a dangerous way to run a franchise. Not to mention if youre depending that much on a rookie to start you likely arent in very good shape roster wise
Hey, I never said you were wrong. All I said was that the Jets drafted Millner at 9 with the desire and belief that he will start on opening day.
With all due respect, I think you're looking at it backwards. They're not insisting he be great because they drafted him at 9. They're drafting him at 9 because they think he'll be great.
That's right. Even Revis gives up completions. I don't think that's what the guy you responded to was talking about, though. I don't think you did either.
Maybe you could slam dunk this argument by comparing Wilson with, say, another career nickel corner. Because you should give up your idea that he is anything close to a 2CB. Just give it up. It's a pipe dream.
You live your football life romanticising players that hardly ever reach their potential. That is a fact. Get real.
They drafted him to be a nickel, not because he had starting potential, but because they thought they could find the best nickel possible. To complement their super-secondary.
They said it.
They said it.
Stop denying it. He doesn't have the skill to play 2CB.
And they knew it.
This is the final time i will engage your out of line, sociopathic manner.
You live your life on this board trying to bully people & label them as whatever you see fit.Of course your big talk is all a result of your own insecurity.Go ahead do your usual nonsense & tell me about some opinion i had or disagreement from 4 years ago.Its quite flattering that you keep tabs on my posting history.
I dont care what you think of me or my opinions.I stand by what i said. Im not always right & will always admit when im wrong. Jets football is my lone passion & im not afraid to go against the prevailing opinion. If im wrong so be it. But im honest & educated. Thats the standard i will always go by.
Sociopathic? Get over it, Kurt. It's a fucking message board. People disagree. You act like I am stalking you. Guess what? I'm familiar with your opinions. And for the most part, I disagree with you.
That doesn't mean I am a sociopath. Any more than it makes you a sad sack.
We're both honest and educated. We just disagree. Why is it always a victim thing with you?
Who cares? Rookie CBs take some time to develop. Even Revis didn't tear it up in his rookie year. The best person for the job will be the starter. If Milliner proves he is capable in TC it will be him. If not it might be Wilson. The problem is I believe that Wilson is a good slot corner, so I'd rather see Milliner on the outsides. But all good things take time. I don't expect Milliner to be replacing Revis right out of the draft. He was valued as a top 5 prospect before the draft so I'm happy about the pick, but nothing is guaranteed. If coaches don't play the best person available then they aren't coaches.
