    Didn't see this posted - good article from one of the few NFL beat writers without an agenda.

    Good article indeed.

    Edwards shouldn't have sit at all.

    No other team has EVER suspended/deactivated a player for a DUI like they were calling on the Jets to do.

    Rex should have just said that and moved on.

    Love this comment:

    "[B]The church ladies, like uptight moralist Mike Lupica[/B] of the [I]New York Daily News[/I], who wanted Edwards to miss four games after being arrested on DUI charges...They had to hate this, because Edwards played three quarters. And he played very well."

    He did have a good game... That DUI thing is in the past now and time to move forward. Ronnie "DUI" Brown played in his third FULL game since his DUI, and not a mention of it....

    Thanks Indiana for posting that. What a refreshing and really great read. It's a shame we need outside journalists to help protect & stick up for our NYJ players.

    In my opinion some of the NY Jet beat writers should stick to following around Paris Hilton with a press pass from TMZ instead of exploiting our players (and their girlfriends) while trying to make a name for themselves.

    :mad:

    To anyone looking to attack the New York Jet players - GFY!

    Oh and feel free to "Retweet" that ass hole(s).

    :mad:

    Edwards did a heckuva job blocking on several key plays as well. That usually goes unnoticed for WRs, but its certainly worthy of mention for BE.

    Agree 110%. Leave it to the so called NYJ beat reporters to attack the players, bash a guy for making a mistake and painting the team in a very negative light. I don't see any "middle of the road" reporting here? Do you?

    [B][U]ANOTHER STRONG SUGGESTION TO THE NY JET PLAYERS - BAN THE MEDIA FROM YOUR CHARITY EVENTS! [/U][/B]
    [B][/B]
    What I'd like to know is do anyone of them actually[B] PAY and/or DONATE[/B] to your charity events when they show up?

    Aside from Randy Lange, how many actually give you a nice write up the next day?

    And lastly, don't you think OFF the field charity events should be OFF limits to the press?

    For me personally these events over the years have been very private affairs between the players, fans & friends of the team. It's also a time to socialize, have fun and talk about ANYTHING else but football all while raising money for a very worthy cause.

    While I don't encourage anyone to drink & drive and I am not saying Braylon was an angel here, but for all that's good and holy the line has to be drawn somewhere between sports and tabloid journalism, don't cha think?

    Just MHO.
