[QUOTE=Austin;4497318]I seem to remember Cotch wanting out right after they signed Plax -- he was pissed he wouldn't get a shot at the #2 job. I don't think they signed Mason until after they released Cotch.[/QUOTE]
Cotchery said he asked the Jets to trade or release him after the 2010 season because he was tired of "constantly taking a back seat" on the team. He said he sensed the deterioration in the club's morale.
"To be honest, yes, I saw a change," Cotchery said. "But to say that I could see how things would turn out for them this season, I canít act as if I knew that. But I just saw a change, and I felt like I wasnít a part of the future there in that type of atmosphere."

But I just don't know why it took them until camp to trade him. Maybe it was b.c of the injury, that would be an obvious excuse. But I have doubts. I think the Plax/Mason stuff were the straws that broke the camel's back.
[QUOTE=jetstream23;4497243]Right now on ESPN, Plaxico was asked if Sanchez can lead the Jets to a Super Bowl. His answer, "well, they paid him so they think he can." When pressed again about, "what do YOU think?" he said, "I think the defense can."
Didn't rip Sanchez, he just avoided two opportunities to endorse Mark. Interesting.[/QUOTE]
who cares what he thinks? sanchez and plax were #1 in RZ efficiency...
[QUOTE=GuidoYaztremski;4497451][B]I rarely see eye to eye with Jordy on just about anything[/B], but Geebus Tx, that's just disgusting, and pure dooshbaggery.[/QUOTE]
C'mon. We both like chicks with shapely tails and beautiful bressesesses.
IMO he signed with the 49ers only after he came to the realization that nobody wanted him. I don't think his pride would have allowed him to sign with the Jets for that much. I do not think he would have limped back to us like that.[/QUOTE]
That's how I remember it. Jets sign Tone to $50M, Edwards wants some big $$$ and Jets say no, then Jets sign Plax for $3M. Edwards scrambles and signs for $1M with 49ers. If, before the Jets signed Plax, Edwards agreed to come back for a similar $3m deal I think he would have been a Jet.
