Elijah Moore = too overhyped?


Recommended Posts

He’s all any of these reporters are talking about every single day. I don’t even know what to expect from him week 1? Is he gonna have a crazy rookie year like Jefferson did last year? What are the expectations on this kid

Cue the draft threads stating that Moore was a wasted pick because Crowder was on the roster.....

Think it seems weird because we’re just not used to guys who are good at football. Particularly at that position.

Because and and and and just weren't enough?

not sure, but any time I see this much positivity surrounding the Jets, or a specific player, the "SOJF" in me gets real nervous!  I cannot WAIT for the day those feelings go away for good....

Sounds like they can’t help it. 
 

I wouldn’t say he’s overrated because he has yet to perform well & then perform bad in real games. There is no start or stop, no peak or drop off, at least not yet.

for right now I just take it as he’s doing very well and I don’t look at it so black & white.

Its not just the Jets writers that are hyping up Moore.  National writers, PFF and guys who cover other teams are taking notice.

I said overhyped not necessarily over rated. Cause I didn’t even think he’d get a full set of snaps each week considering the crowded wr room. You figure Davis and Crowder will be on the field every snap. I’m just trying to get some idea of what Moores production is gonna be this year. Are we in store for an absurd rookie WR season (ala Randy miss, Boldin, Jefferson rookie years?) or will he be like a 600 yard type of season

For now Ill be happy if he stays healthy and doesn't suck.

If I had to guess, I’d say somewhere in the middle to be fair as well as safe.

65-75 catches, 850 yards, 6 TD’s.

Watching Mims taking reps as a gunner today was legit sad to see.

I for one am enjoying not spending the camp thread reading looking for whether we had UDFAs popping to compensate for the glaring holes in the organization. 

However, given how good he has looked, I hope we really load manage and bubble wrap him so he is 100% come Day 1!

Does that matter? 

Does something bad happen to him, the Jets or us if he gets some minor praise during early camp?

I expect nothing.  He's a rookie backup slot WR (as of right now), behind Crowder. 

I expect from him the same as I would from any rookie backup slot WR.  Minimal production on minimal targets.

If he blows up, great!  Expecting him to blow up, same ol' same ol' Jets Fans getting ahead of themselves as usual.

And ffs, stop paying so much attention to who the media "hypes" in early training camp.  If ever there was a route to disappointment, that is it!  LOL.

Relax, and be patient brosef.  You'll get to watch Preseason with your very own eyes soon enough, and you can judge for yourself what to expect from Mr. Moore, by how much, and how well, he plays.

every season there's a guy who stands out one way or another.  seems like in the jets case these guys fizzle out in short order but you know what?  the jets are due to start getting players that are good out of the box.  i'm from missouri so show me, but i am also hopeful moore is the real deal.

So you don’t think he’ll be a starter? Seems hard to believe especially since they’ve been lining him up on the outside not just slot.

Mims did not dominate training camp last year like Moore is doing right now

His agility enables him to break anyone's ankles when he cuts. Combine that with his hands and desire and no; he isn't over hyped. Watching him on film you see his athleticism translate to plays on the field. While he isn't very tall he isn't a smurf either. He's got beast potential.

No idea, it's training camp.  They do alot of things in training camp.  In training camp last year, people thought Mims and Lawrence Cager were going to be a forces, lol.

I don't think we should be thinking of "starter" and "backup" in this system.  We're gonna field quite a few WR's this year, like a good offense often does, it's not going to be 1A and 1B 99% of the time and the other guys sit.

I'm certainly hopeful he is a good productive Pro who will fill his role well and allow us to move on from Crowder or similar next year.

Am I going to predict 800 or 1,000 or 1,200 yards and 8, 10 0r 12 TD's on some early camp chatter?  Come on man, lol.

Like I said, I'll start making predictions after I see these guys play, and especially Wilson throwing.  Moore can't produce if Wilson can't hit him in stride, and since I'm not at camp, so I have no idea as yet what Wilson can or will do.
