Who could we realistically trade Zay or Shady for?

Recommended Posts

Well we can't trade Zay now that Foster is about to lose a foot.

He is a # 2 WR, ranked as an average #2 WR (in yards) and an above average #2 WR (in touchdowns). Sure, an upgrade would be awesome, but lets not pretend he is a garbage WR. 

 

That fact that your "eyes" can't pick up evidence borne out in statistics is why you should probably be a little more skeptical of your own opinions. 

I'll tell you what. If watched enough of this game for long enough and seen enough players come and go that I think I can spot a JAG when I see one and Zay Jones is a JAG. 

 

When he drops a big ball in December and costs them a game come pump his tires then.

 

Statistics.  Yup. That's the definitive answer.  A guy has decent WR2 numbers in Fantasy, lets keep him.

 

Here are some stats from 2 receivers in the same year.  You tell me, based on this, which one was a better player.

 

WR1: 57 receptions, 752 yards, 5TDs

WR2: 56 receptions, 765 yards, 4TDs

I think I am about there on seeing what we can get for Zay Jones....would rather trade him for a later round pick then cut him for nothing.

 

Duke actually catches the ball

Its just a lack of critical thinking. Its easier to rely on the narrative than think for yourself. 

He does not make big catches.....I wish he did

Had a good fantasy day on this day.  Dropped an important pass at the end.

I honestly don’t know, but I’m not talking about stats generally; I’m citing one specific stat—drops. He does not drop the ball the way it is represented on this board.

You don't want to play now?  These guys both played on the same team.  They both had the same QB all year.  They were both in their 3rd year.  Which one was a better player?

 

Or is what you're saying that you can't tell the difference between them just based on that and you would need some additional information, like maybe watching them play?

 

I'll bail you out.  The year was 1987

 

Wr1 is Andre Reed a HoF player

Wr2 is Chris Burkett a JAG who was cut less than 2 seasons later.

I know that this is just a hypothetical question at this point and, OK, I am game, a 5th for Zay and a 4th for Shady.  HERE we don't think highly of Zay and I am not saying they should anywhere else, but on a terrible team last year he caught 61 passes and 7 TDs so thta should mean something to someone if they need receiver help.

 

That sad I have still been stunned by the perception of this fan base concerning Shady.

 

I don't think he has really lost a step and I think last year's Oline, especially for the running game, was bad beyond the mere stats that analysts give us.  I believe it was one of if not the worst line in franchise history.  He is a workout machine, takes care of himself, is not THAT old and is committed, especially in a free agency year.

 

I believe Shady is the number one back on this team and I believe he is going to rush for the most yards and depending upon how things unfold I believe he is capable of a thousand yard season, if not more.

 

I hope I am right, because it can only benefit this team this year if I am. 

I hope you are right.  But I think it is more likely we lose a game or two because Shady is a weak starter before McD accepts the truth. He is this years peterman.

Ohhhhh i see your point. That’s fair. I honestly do not know the trajectory of their careers. I’m sure there is some glaring context you are leaving out, but I’ll give it to you. All I’m saying is that if you think zay can’t play because of the drops, which was your original point, you are objectively and demonstrably wrong.

No, I'm not, but thanks for playing.

Naturally there was the exact amount of context missing from that Burkett story as I thought there would be. The fact that you were that misleading with your blind stat challenge tells me everything I need to know about you. Because, apparently, you have this magical eye that allows you to see drops not seen my any other statistician or pro sports analyst.

Kay, so he got credited with how many last year? 3?  Watch this and see how many you see.  I see at least 6 and these are just Allen throws, not Anderson or Barkley.  There are a couple I didn't count because I didn't think they were drops but "drop" is a subjective stat.  Just because a catch is difficult doesn't mean an NFL receiver shouldn't catch the ball.

and what precisely was misleading about the stats I gave you?  That was the point!  You, quite snarkily, came after me about the eye test and quoted stats so I proved to you how stats don't tell the whole story.  The fact that you feel mislead by that just proves my point.

The official number is 5. It’s the same standard as every other nfl WR in the league. Like they say, facts don’t care about your feelings. You may feel it’s a drop, but by the standard applied to every player in the league, it is not.

 

Im dying over the fact that you thought this video proves your point. This is fantastic.

Yeah, I'm not going to go through every snap and build you a video montage of all of his targets.  You're welcome to do that though.  Have a good time.

See, this is a basic perception problem. He had drops, you are right. Point is everyone has drops; he did not have an above average number of drops. And that video you posted, while it certainly shows some drops (but others that are on the verge of completely u catchable) does nothing to prove he had more drops than any other receiver.

Shouldn't Singletary be ready to play a major role? We took a RB in the 3rd round. What's the deal with him?

I hate to be negative, but I fear his spleen may be at risk as well.   😳

Look at this picture of Foster at his house this morning! I don't think he is ever setting foot (boom! roasted) on a field again!

For you to be down on a receiver is worrisome!
