Yes I've watched Chark play. He's a big bodied contested catch receiver and isn't very fast for an nfl receiver. His ceiling was already capped by playing with Gardner Minchew, and now they've added Shenault.dirkey wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 1:21 amTake a look back at the thread. You asked a simple question. Who would you pick, in a vacuum. You actually got more than that from the first couple of people who responded - they said, Jones short term, Chark long term. So, they gave you something.MFundercover wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 12:50 amI only call people iduots for ranking Chark over Jones. No other forums or rankings make that claim, and nobody even really offers explanation for it here. It's a pretty terrible opinion that nobody outside of this forum agrees with.dirkey wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 12:16 am
Thankfully this aggressive and extremely irritable poster, who has only been here 4 days, thinks the place is a joke, so he'll be gone soon.
Then we can be back to respectful, helpful chats.
It's hilarious. I've seen it a few times. Puts up a question. People disagree. Calls everyone idiots. Unless people agree with his opinion, they're idiots.
You then went on a rant about how people overvalue Chark and undervalue Jones for some reason. Because they didn't immediately agree that Jones should be the choice?
You've repeatedly called Chark a possession receiver. Have you watched him play? Because, you're wrong. You say his ceiling is limited. Again, you're wrong. He was WR5 through 11 weeks of the season. That's not a 2 week flash in the pan. And who was throwing him the ball for most of those games? Minshew. He did fall off in the latter part of the season.
Maybe the first part of the season was a mirage? We don't know for sure. But a lot of us liked what we saw. He had a 20 odd % target share last year, and he's a big bodied number 1 type receiver, so it's likely his target share goes up. You talk about Minshew a lot, but whatever about him, they developed a rapport, so that can help. He had a decent enough catch rate. It wasn't spectacular, but it was fine. Improve on that a little, have his target share go up a little .. and things look good. He might regress with regard to touchdowns, that's always a variable.
Ultimately, who knows? There are reasons not to like him too. The difference between me (and 99% of the rest of the posters on this form) and you, is that, I know that ... we don't know everything. We can't predict the future. You're hell bent that the rest of us are idiots for liking Chark - we know that we might be right, but we might be wrong. Hell, professional GMs, who do this for a living, and are actual experts - not self proclaimed like yourself on this forum - get it wrong more often than right. Think about that for a minute.
Actually, maybe the Franchises should think about you? Since you rarely get it wrong. Maybe you should reach out to them.
As for Jones - bear in mind I am relatively high on him in relation to a lot on the forum. However, his touchdown number will regress. That's just ... that's as close to definite as you can get in football. He had a fantastic season, while in RBBC. And what has his coach talked about since? Getting Jamaal Williams more involved. What has the front office done? Drafted a new running back. What does that tell you? His time is probably coming to a close in Green Bay. You're full sure he's going to get a contract elsewhere as a number 1. Well, that's a variable that the rest of us don't like, and some aren't willing to bet on. For me, the fact the Franchise where he's done it can't agree a contract with him, and are openly talking about getting others more involved...that's a red flag. That doesn't lead me to believe anyone is going to be in a huge rush to pick him up.
I'm simply giving you some reasons people might like Chark, and some reasons people might be down on Jones. That's what you're asking for. Well, it's not what you initially asked for, but it's what you changed the question to after you were pulled up on calling people idiots.
Talk about touchdown regression, but he still would have been an rb1 with 10 touchdowns last season, and has been the most efficient running back inside the 10 since coming into the league.
It's hard to see a one dimensional rookie like Dillon taking a significant workload from Jones next year. But his contract is a big question. Green Bay did have negotiations with him (twice) but wasn't able to make a deal. With other free agents at key positions and a tight budget, his contract situation is more about the salary cap than a vindication of Jones as a player.
All things considered I am looking to trade Jones to mitigate the risk of his landing spot, but he is absolutely worth a player with a higher ceiling than DJ Chark. That's a complete joke and literally nobody outside of this forum agrees. You could probably buy Chark for a 2nd round pick by the time Jones career is finished, it's really not close.
