Thoughts on Stephen Hill Dan Leberfeld
There is talk that Stephen Hill could be moved out of the starting lineup.
That is the right way to go.
First off, he’s not healthy – he’s dealing with foot and knee issues, and it’s impacting his game.
Secondly, he should have never started in the first place, and this goes back to last year.
He was forced into the starting lineup too quickly last season, and the Jets continued with him as a starter this season.
He came out of school as a junior from a running offensive at Georgia Tech. Hill was a major project, coming in very, very raw, but as Rex Ryan is wont to do, he forced the player into the starting lineup before he was ready.
It’s time to give David Nelson a shot in the starting lineup, and take a step back with Hill.
