While speaking on his regular spot during an ESPN telecast, former NFL offensive lineman and now ESPN analyst Mark Schlereth said that Jets fans need to get ready to be driven crazy by Decker because he is at best, a marginal number two wide receiver in the NFL.
"Decker in my mind was your fourth option in Denver, and that’s the talent I think he has," he said on ESPN 98.7. "The worst cover guy you have on your defense is assigned to Eric Decker every week. New York will go crazy watching him be covered 1-on-1 and incomplete passes, throwing his arms up, begging for flags. I’m telling you New York, get ready," he continued, "begging for flags like, ‘I was interfered with. That’s the only reason I didn’t catch that ball’ every play and then tripping over his own feet. Going for a big play and all of a sudden the turf monster gets him, bam, sniper, down. It will drive you crazy. It will absolutely drive you crazy."
