Maurice Jones-Drew is the Jacksonville offense. He’s a great player, but if the Jaguars want to compete with the Colts, Jets and Patriots, their offense is going to have to go to at least 2-D, if not 3-D.
Mike Sims-Walker — wouldn’t it be cool if the Jaguars tried to acquire as many hyphenated players as possible? Think of the possibilities — gives them a good opportunity to break into another dimension.
Now, it can’t all be on Sims-Walker. Quarterback David Garrard needs to step up and there needs to be more than one receiving option — tight end Zach Miller could help open up the field. But Sims-Walker’s performance in 2009, his first full season in the National Football League, is all we need to speculate on his potential.
He finished with 869 yards on 63 catches and scored seven TDs. Sims-Walker had three games with 100 or more yards receiving and had six catches or more in seven games.
The most concerning aspect of Sims-Walker’s 2009 season was inconsistency. For as strong a debut season as he had, the Jaguars receiver had just 16 catches, 175 yards and one TD from Week 12 through the end of the season.
Because of the inconsistency, let’s not get cray and put him in our top-20s for 20010. But despite his inconsistency, Sims-Walker feels like a top-30 wide receiver with the potential to surprise.
