Stephen Hill’s Agent Crazy to Blame Former New York Jets’ QBs for Client’s Release
It’s easy to point the finger at someone else whenever something goes wrong. When the New York Jets released former second-round pick Stephen Hill from the team on Saturday afternoon, Hill’s agent Alan Herman did just that, and was quick to blame the Jets’ quarterback situation for the reason why Hill didn’t make the team.
“He didn’t have a chance that first year with that whole Tim Tebow-Mark Sanchez fiasco,” Herman told USA TODAY. “His second year, Geno Smith was learning how to play quarterback. So they never threw the ball deep because they wanted to simplify things for Geno.”
Sure, the Jets weren’t lucky enough to have a top-notch quarterback under center during Hill’s time with the team, but Sanchez was an average-to-good quarterback with the ability to hit his wide receivers and give them the opportunity to make plays. Maybe the problem wasn’t the Jets’ quarterbacks, but perhaps it had a little more to do with Hill and his inability to catch the ball and get open.
Was Smith a great quarterback last season? No. But if Hill was the great of receiver like his agent claims, he’d be able to turn Smith into a star QB. Would Hill have been better off with Peyton Manning? Of course, but even I could have become a better receiver if someone of that caliber was hitting me across the middle with perfect passes.
Hill’s agent doesn’t need to make excuses for his client — I get it, that’s his job — but maybe his agent needs to realize that Hill isn’t a great receiver. Maybe a change of scenery will do Hill some good and it will rejuvenate his career. For now, Jets GM John Idzik made the right choice by moving on from the struggling young wide receiver who has yet to find his skill-set at the college level translating to the NFL.
