Maybe thats why he cant catch
Look at Kenny and Ryan. Working on that great chemistry. Parker looks like he's zoned out. Focus man!
Who said Jakeem can't catch...I don't remember that being a problem....The only problem he had was muffling a couple of punts. Something he didn't do in college and it showed. But with another offseason of preoparation, I think he'll be fine this year.
I say. I have never had less faith in any dolphin wr's chances of actually catching a pass. That includes naanee
I truly hope so.
Why? He had a good preseason last year catching passes...it's the punts during the season that didn't go so well. I think when he dropped one, he let it get into his head.
It looks like Grant / Carroo are chatting and Parker doesnt give a **** and he's definitely way zoned out
but yeah, how many actual offensive opportunities did he have to catch the ball? I know I don't have total faith in him based on the punts, but I want the little guy to improve. He's electric
Wasn't Jakeem a power lifter?
Carroo looks massive..WOW!!
Parker will probably do very well because of his contract up in two years.
Who's the guy next to Leonte?
Jarvis looks like he gained a lot of muscle since the last time I seen him 2 years ago in Jville..
I'll warn you guys before I go to a game since every time I go they lose lol
The Jags loss two years ago was about as heartbreaking as any. (Think about our expectations week 2 2015) That loss was even worse when the GW field goal is right in front of your face.
Not to mention, Vernon committed a dumb PF and moved them up 15 yds.
I remember watching Walt Aikens get dominated by $hitty Bortles lol
I actually thought Bortles was progressing lol Nvm on that..We just sucked lol bigly
Thank the football gods we have a real NFL Head Coach!!
Can't judge a still pic. Maybe they're talking about crap like Game of Thrones and Parker is replaying the awesome episode of SpongeBob's Band Geeks in his head.
Parker is more engaged in this pic.
Agree for All we know Grant and Carroo are talking about where they're going to dinner and Parker already has other plans. If it's a private two person conversation and Parker is standing there of course he might look a bit disengaged. Now if Tannehill, Stills, Grant and Carroo were discussing route concepts and Parker looked disengaged than that would be different.
It really is a slow time of the year. People posting on Parkers demeanor from Twitter pics, lol
Agreed. He probably was just looking at something but it does seem that he's a reserved guy. Hopefully more like AJ Green lol
He needs to dominate. I believe he should easily be our best receiver. His heart needs to be in it.
If he EVER gains that, (money talks lol) he has the ability to be one of the best.
In fairness to Devante, he does take away the other squads #1 CB.
Maybe Parker has the same deep thought face as Kelso??
I wish there was a way to downsize that before posting it... sorry guys
The aspect I like the most of this is Tannehill hanging with all of his WR's. Say what you may, but they are developing chemistry away from the field as well, which can only be a good thing.
God I love Jarvis Landry
I was at that game too it was pathetic
I was expecting Grant's arms to be like NEXT LEVEL - really, they just look like the arms of a football player to me.
Did anyone notice Tannehill foot placement in the first pick, clearly his knee is still bothering him and I really worry about that thumbs up...it seems half-hearted...either go full thumbs up or not, maybe his knee is having an effect on the rest of the body. Why is Stills standing on a step below? It doesn't really inspire confidence. The is something off about Landry in his pictures as well, why is he not pictured with the other WR...seems like he is already in holdout mode. These pictures have me really concerned....6-10 at best.
Saying Grant has catching issues is overblown and just a typical overreaction. Punts sure, but he caught the ball fine at Tech.
First sentence had me like...WTF?!
Then....Oh! I see what you did there!
Massive standards are lacking bro
good god, "focus? zoned out?" they are in goddamn street clothes and this isn't a game or a practice, parker could be looking at a hot chick just outta frame.
Took you all of one pass attempt to create that crisis of faith, eh?
For the love of all that's holy ... STAY THE **** AWAY FROM JETS GAMES!!!
He had some drops at Texas Tech. He had a few in training camp. He clearly went into a crisis of confidence during the season that mainly revolved around his catching punts.
It's not based on NOTHING.
But it's way way way way way way way over-exaggerated at this point. Which is something fans seem to be great at (see: Tannehill deep ball thing).
we gotta fix your avatar. @DisturbedShifty wanna help?
Oh I went past crisis of faith and arrived at "time to move on" several fumbles ago
Really? Have you read anything about him since last summer?
Christ almighty, what a dumb thing to say.
"Tagged with 23 drops over last three seasons."
"• Inconsistent hands. Dropped 21 of the 176 catchable passes thrown his way over the past two seasons."
"Too many drops."
"Drops are a big issue for Grant, who put 21 passes on the ground on 238 targets in the past two seasons, according to College Football Focus. It's alarming that nine of his drops in 2015 came in the middle of the field, where a smaller receiver like Grant would naturally be utilized in the NFL."
"Jakeem Grant needs to get better at catching the football."
Each quote is from a different scouting report. You can google Jakeem Grant scouting report for the sources. How do people not know he has catch issues?
But is it as dumb as not being able to pick up on the sarcasm? Not likely.
I was playing around lol
I think most of us are lol
including Ted Ginn?
The ginn draft was before I was really serious about the nfl. My perception of him is a bit skewed really.... because he has turned out to be quite good
Adam Gase did say Jakeem is the strongest player on the team pound for pound.
Nah. he's still doing the same dumb **** in Carolina. He's only slightly better than Mike Wallace b/c of his return ability.
Not saying he is great, but he went on to have a respectable and long career. Obviously not worth his draft pick
Didnt he have 10 tds a while ago?
Could be looking at some fine ***** walking past. Who knows?
Its a joke Bill...
I guess people here don't understand sarcasm. I'll try to be more obvious next time
Have you personally seen him drop a lot of passes last year, especially since he only got a grand total of one, Carroo only got three, does he have bad hands too. Since last season, I haven't heard anyone say Jakeem was dropping a lot of passes this offseason, have you?
Jakeem just lost his confidence and as a rookie that's vital
Parker has that Dion Jordan look to him.
Ginn is a hell of a return guy, but even with that, I think I'm still taking Wallace. Ginn drops a lot of easy s**t. Not even over the middle stuff either....literally drops touchdowns, lol
I've seen drunks at 2am and headless chickens run better routes than Wallace. For both their only real hope of being hand-catchers is something along the lines of . . .
Hahaha. Yeah, they will never be confused with Steve Largent when it comes to route running and I don't miss either one. But, I've never seen Wallace drop that many easy passes throughout his career like Ginn has. Put me together a Wallace follies tape, tho. I'm sure he's got some good ones!
