Hypothetical situation about two of our young up and coming talents who are on the verge of being extended - who would have the advantage in a real game one on one situation: Torrey or Jimmy?

 

I think Torrey matches up well, as Smith (although much improved last year) has shown his Achilles heel to be deep shots over his head, especially on double moves.

 

What do you guys think?

Jimmy would wreck Torrey and it's not even close if you ask me.

 

Torrey can't do diddly poo against press corners.

I think Torrey would have a couple of big catches maybe a long TD...Jimmy is good but he can get beat at times. I would give the advantage to Jim however.

Im not sure a thread like this has been made but I like it. Maybe only comes up when we play former guys.

I wanna answer, but too many variables. With last years offense in mind, it's hard to have faith in Torrey, til you remember a year prior and some of the catches he had. Always been a Jimmy fan, so I'll rock with him, but Torrey might get his.

Jimmy.  A good CB always beats a good WR.

I'd say Jimmy. But given enough opportunities Torrey can burn any corner in the league, just not all the time. And he's not a big enough force to make corners pay every time QBs throw in their direction (a la Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson etc.). Jimmy has the advantage here and the scary thing is he just started "getting it". He'll get so much better in the next 1-2 years. But the question itself is odd. :D

Torrey have been the most productive player vs. Jimmy

 

The upside for both of them are incredibly high.   

Plus Torrey has a great durability.  Something Jimmy couldn't say b/c he had setbacks all of his NFL career.

 

I'd say Torrey full season.   One game, Jimmy...

Look at how Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, BRandon Marshall and Josh Gordon did against Jimmy Smith. IDK how anyone could pick Torrey 1 on 1. Torrey is a beast though Jimmy played on another level last season

Gotta go with Jimmy. I also hope he gets extended before Torrey but wouldn't care as long as we get both.

Not that it matters in the here and now, but back when they were rooks in TC, Torrey ripped Jimmy a new one nearly every day.

 

But yeah, today, Torrey gets shut down. 2 catches for 36 yards

I remember those TC highlight videos and remember those types of catches Torrey would make against Jimmy. Then I watched Torrey during the pre-season and wondered "where's that guy?"

A lot of people seem to do that around here. People respect him, but I don't think he gets the recognition or appreciation he should. I said I'd pick Jimmy, but voted it would be a tie.
