I would just like to remove the 2 from Juniors Hemingways jersey. This is why IMO, he should have it. Kid makes big plays, in key moments. Being double teamed, going up and getting the jump balls is what really sells it. He wants that ball so much. Sure he might lack a little breakaway speed, but he's a gamer!
I really like Roy Roundtree don't get me wrong. He does make plays. So glad we used some snake oil to get him. Being quiet all night, to ask for the ball and make the GW TD catch is pretty magical. Most definately an ESPN classic. However I just don't think he garners enough impact presence on the field to consistently make that big play. Junior is that player.
I underdstand the eligibilty with both players, just curious to see some opinions on this matter. There has been so much debate with the # 1. Will we see it worn by another receiever? Or has one of these two done enough to wear it now?
