Mike and Mike; Reunited


Mike Sims-Walker is supposedly being re-signed.  What does this mean?

 

Is Mike Sims-Walker going to step back into the #1 role?  

I think he has to earn the spot before dethroning Jason Hill.

Does this help our passing game?

Yes, this definitely does.  If Mike takes the #1 spot back, we then have:

 

1. Mike Sims-Walker

2. Mike Thomas

3. Cecil Shorts III

4. Jason Hill

5. Jarrett Dillard

 

Jason Hill has dropped quite a few passes, especially the quick slants.  That is what Dirk Koetter utilizes the most in the Jaguars passing game, and Hill wasn't getting it done.  Sims-Walker was that guy, and now we have him back.  This also puts Hill in a better spot to utilize his strengths.  He is fast, with ok hands, and solid route running.  As a #4 he is more of a typical deep threat, and will get a lot of chances to make big plays.

How does this help Blaine Gabbert?

MSW will now provide him with an overall solid receiver to go with Mike Thomas.  He will get more attention from opposing defenses, making Thomas more open, and provides Blaine with a guy he can trust to make the catches in the clutch.  

Why will Mike Sims-Walker be better this year?

Mike now has a good QB.  He has a big QB, with a huge arm, and pretty solid accuracy.  He is better then Garrard, and may even be more mobile then him, Garrard's only strength.  1,400 yards in 2 years with a solid(at best) QB, lets see what he can do with Blaine.  This can only help Blaine develop.
