I recall there was a day at practice where Geno threw him 5 TDs or something crazy like that.... I think Geno's seeing him so far this year.

Pardon my ignorance…doubt this is able to be validated but, I read that based on a metric of ‘how open’ receivers in the NFL are/were, JSN was high on the list.

I went to the game vs Cincy last year. While every QB is going to miss a guy here and there, I recall JSN being very open…on the majority of his routes. At one point, he literally stopped and just threw his hands up like “excuse me…look here”.

Mind you, I didn’t have the best angle. But, the difference in seeing him in person vs the way the cameras track plays for televised games was a bit surreal. He often had a 5 yard or more gap between him and the nearest defender.

Certain players stand out when watching live games. He was one of them (regardless of stats that game).
Yes,he did look extremely frustrated on numerous occasions.

I don't really think it's entirely up to him. There's only one ball on the field and our WR room is LOADED.

For comparison Metcalf was targeted 119 times last year, Lockett 122, and JSN 93. Say they all get 110 targets this year, it's going to be a matter of avg ypc. JSN's average was 10 ypc last year, so we could wind up with 3 1,000 yd receivers.

If our defense is better we might get 10 drives per game instead of 8, which could put all our big 3 in the 120 targets per range too.
If we get three 1,000 yard receivers, then we would be only the 6th team in history to do so.

Every QB who has done this, has been over 4,000 yards for the season, except Rypien (3,768 yards) because he only played 14 games that season (combined yardage for Rypien and Williams was 4,353 yards that season.)

4,000 yards was basically top ten for 2023, with Trevor Lawrence at 10 with 4,016 yards, and Matthew Stafford at 11 with 3,965 yards.

No reason to think Geno can't have another 4000 yard season given he had one two years ago and hit 3624 last year in 14.5 games.
Three 1000 yard receivers is obviously still much harder.
