Stephen Hill predicts deep playoff run for Jets


11:30 AM ET 07.16 | The New York Jets have never been shy on confidence since Rex Ryan took over as head coach, so it really comes as no surprise when a player speaks out or makes a wild claim about the direction of where the team is heading. Every year it seems like a player predicts great success for the team and this year the chatter comes from second-year wide receiver Stephen Hill. Hill was giving his thoughts on the upcoming season and gave the prediction that New York will be playing well into January thanks to a deep playoff run. As a child, I was told to always shoot for the moon, because if you miss you will still land among the stars. For Hill and the 2013 New York Jets, the stars may be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Yet ANOTHER comedian on the Jets? Paula Poundstone is getting a run for her money now!

I believe the last sentence says it all.

Seriously, why did they draft Geno? Let Sanchez stink it up, get a number 1 QB in the 2014 draft, and move on with a new regime.

What do they expect him to say, that the Jets suck? That's our job.

He may see that moon, the crowds will show it to him if they continue the bad play. Hill of course will again do no wrong (Injured Reserve) again.

Looks like he won't be passing his next drug test if this is how he see's things.

They should send him for his Drug Screening the second he reports to camp.

I sure hope Mr Hill is kissing up. These kind a delusions will get one a nut house in anywhere but NYC.

July 16, 2013  05:15 PM ET

I think it all depends on Hill's definition of deep.
