One of the more underreported stories of this season is how far sophomore wide receiver Stephen Hill has fallen off the map, particularly over the past month.
Despite getting more than ample playing time, Hill has not caught a pass since the game against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 27, where he caught one pass in garbage time.
Hill is not the type of receiver who is going to put up huge reception numbers, but the fact that he has been completely invisible, particularly in Santonio Holmes' absence, is disturbing.
The Jets relied on the big play with Holmes and Hill early in the season. Those plays are no longer happening, and the Jets' passing numbers reflect it.
Simply put, the Jets need Hill to play at least as well as an average starter in order to sustain offense through the air.
