Ivan McCartney mid-season report card. A solid B+
So what have we learned about Sticks this season? If you would have read all of the per-recruitment publication you would have believed that he was going to be the next Ochoa-Cinco. In his inaugural season you might have been underwhelmed with his performance. So what were we going to see from him after a spring of conditioning. If you had listened to all of the preseason hype you would have been convinced that he might not even see the field this year. It was the talk of camp that he was 2nd on the depth chart behind a game Ryan Nehlen. So what exactly happened in that fall camp to lead us to where we are today? I would surmise that Coach Holgorsen has found exactly what buttons to push to motivate this obviously talented kid to the new and great heights. No question he is one of the 3 most popular targets of Geno Smith behind only Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin. This 3 headed dragon that has emerged has made it almost impossible for defenses to cover the field. Basically, a team must chose its poison and if that poison is Sticks it could be a painful sting indeed. A little look into his numbers reveals the following: He has played in 6 games this season. He has caught 34 passes for 455 yards. He is averaging 13.38 yards per catch. He has 3 touchdowns. He is averaging 5.7 catches per game with a game average of 75.8 yards. I decided to highlight this player because I think that you will see a huge game from him in the dome. As I said above the Orange must chose its poison and that likely means that they will key on Stedman and Tavon. I think that they will find that choice to be a painful one. I look forward to seeing this receiver doing big things in the weeks to come.
