You guys are brutal. I look at this as a good thing. He is talented but hurt. Now the Jets get to sign him at a lower price and bring him back.
Skill players are lacking here, so I don't see the Jets just letting him walk despite this injury plagued year.
I'm with you on this one. He's certainly not an elite talent and not worth a huge contract, but he's a solid receiver at TE (better than anything the Jets have had at the position in a long time) and would be a quality weapon for any team, particularly if complemented by another legit TE on the roster like just about every other team in the league does these days.
The truth is he's one of those guys who a lot of people were unhappy with after his first couple of years and some have refused to ever change their stance on him after that. We had some people who endlessly moaned about his problem being that he was not a consistent enough player (while dismissing the garbage QB play he's had to deal with ever since his second year). Then when he turns around last season and has his best and most consistent season of his career, that is of course immediately dismissed as irrelevant. Now we move onto this nonsense of some pretending as if Keller's entire career has been defined by injuries. The guy hadn't missed a single game in his career prior to this year, but now one season with a couple of injuries and he's suddenly defined as soft?
I'm sorry, but stuff like that tells you all you really need to know about what a heaping load of crap that all is. It basically tells you that some people determined their opinions years ago and are so desperate to try to justify it, they'll pull whatever they can out of their ass, regardless of the legitimacy of it. It's one thing to just not like the type of player that he is, as I could certainly understand that, but when you have to fabricate reasons, and repeatedly change what they are, in order to try to justify your position, you're doing far more to discredit your position than support it.
By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...
