AJ Green, Julio Jones, Andre Debose?

Postby kcgator » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:32 am

When was the last time the Gator Nation had a dominant receiver in the mold of Jones/Green? Harvin wasn't a true receiver, by the way...

How many receivers like Jones/Green are there in the entire world? Those guys are rare at any school.

Why is Andre Debose in the thread title? Phishing a little? :lol:

I don't think you have to go that far back, though I would rate Chandler above either of the receivers mentioned in the thread title. Yes, Debose included. :lol:

We've had some good ones over the years, but probably the one that came closest to the physical mold here was Jabar Gaffney, who strung together two great seasons in 2000-2001.

You're not making yourself very clear. Are you debating Gaffney?

Okay, I'll finish the argument. Here we go.

Jabar Gaffney, 6-2, 200

2000 ... 71 receptions, 1,184 yards, 14 TDs
2001 ... 67, 1,181, 13

Julio Jones, 6-3, 220

2008 ... 58, 924, 4
2009 ... 43, 596, 4
2010 ... 78, 1,133, 9

Where's the argument now, Funn?

How would you know? You weren't born for at least another seven years, pipsqueak.

One of the most athletically gifted family names in North Florida. Also one of the most corrupt.

Jabar was awesome, but that's an apples to oranges argument. Different offensive schemes, MUCH different quarterbacks, different competition. Other than maybe Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson, Julio is about as good as it gets.

The weed I bought, I think you bought it from me. Who gives a phuck if they are corrupt? We're talking about football skills.

In that case I change my vote to Randy Moss. He even told me so yesterday.

I wasn't making an argument for that. I'n not the biggest Julio fan to begin with but I'd still Jabar as long as his head was in a good place.

Didn't Gaffney leave after his junior season? I'd have loved to seen the numbers he would have put together had he stayed another year. No, he wasn't as fast as Jones, maybe not as good of hands, but for sure a very talented big receiver.

As I said in my initial post, he came closest to the two mentioned in the title. Wasn't saying he was identical but that he was the closest we had to them.

I'm biased of course but I think he had the talent to be better. If Moss had an ounce of Rice's drive and work ethic he would have been better. Same apply's to Jabar.
