I was never one of the guys on the boards who was enamoured by The Danny Woodhead Story. You've seen it and you can see right through it; small white kid playing a black man's position-I never cared about that crap. WTHBS, Woodhead is NOT useless, he plays 3 positions; RB, WR, and ST's and if needed I'm willing to bet he could also be a returner and also a safety if need be. The Jets will keep him and he deserves the slot. Now tell me who would you rather taking up a roster spot Tom-Woodhead or McKnight?
In reality, Woodhead is only a prospect as a slot receiver. He can't play in the backfield because he'll get Sanchez murdered trying to pick up the blitz and, with his size, he can neither block nor cover effectively on special teams. Now, if he develops as a slot guy, awesome, but this talk of versatility always leaves me scratching my head--it's like Woodhead fans are looking for a reason to justify keeping him on the roster. Myself, I'm a fan of giving the last couple of roster spots to either veteran leaders who might have a little left in the tank OR young, athletic freaks who don't really have a position. Woodhead is neither. He's simply and solely a nice story who will never make an impact for this football team.

Don't argue with me. Just don't.
