    What world are you living in Jordy? Braylon Edwards agreeing to become the Jets #4 WR behind Holmes, Hill and Kerley? Because lets be honest here... You weren't talking about replacing Hill with Edwards, were you? And lets be honest here... You're not trying to act as if Edwards could replace Kerley as a slot wr? Were you? So, you're saying that Edwards would become a 'good boy' as our 4th WR? That's what you've been saying? Nice to know.
    Id rather have Hill learn behind Edwards then Holmes. We should have kept Edwards over Holmes Braylon was solid here he was a deep threat a team player good run blocker and he really wanted to be here. If Edwards signed with the Jets and camp tomrrow he would beat Hill out for the number 2 spot easily. Hill has speed on Edwards and thats all he has on Edwards.

    +1

    He's basically going to be a #3 or #4 with Seattle.

    He just signed a one-year deal. Do you think he's expecting to start?

    If your best chance to see the field is as a #3, it's not out of the realm of possibility that you'd end up as the #4. And yes, I would have loved to have Braylon as the #4 on this team.

    P.S. - the same Kerley you're hyping up as an irreplacable slot man is the only player to be in Rex's doghouse in 3 seasons.

    Reality check for Phil.

    Sigh.... Bringing Bray-bray back would have completed me.

    Braylon Edwards - WR - Seahawks

    According to ESPN New York, the Jets did have some level of interest in Braylon Edwards as a "down the road option" before he signed with Seattle.
    This could be one the Jets end up regretting. Yahoo's Doug Farrar observed that Edwards looked good, aggressively beating the press off the line in Tuesday's practice. The Jets passing game, on the other hand, has a been a mess early in the camp with unproven receivers struggling to separate from defenders.

    So, in other words... You'd take Braylon Edwards over Stephen Hill.

    Nice to know, I'll be sure to bump this thread (bookmarked now) as Hill becomes a stand-out rookie while Braylon Edwards struggles to compete moving forward.
    Listen captain crunch. I don't know what you think you know, but Hill is NOT going to be flushing on the river this year. You grade college talent as well as you grade women. With your imagination.

    At this point, no team would pick Edwards over Hill, as the latter presents a better franchise option. His whole career is ahead of him. But Hill would stand next to NO chance unseating Edwards as the #2 come week 1.

    Wake up man.

    So we're arguing over which scrub should line up at the 4 WR spot?

    Hate to break it to those who drool over BE, but 4's, they're interchangeable parts that in the scheme of things mean squat.

    i'd trade Braylon for Jeff Otah

    That's funny, especially considering the fact that Braylon Edwards just had an injury plagued season, and even during the 9 games that he did play in, he could only combine for 15 receptions, 181 yards and 0 TD's.

    Also, lets not forget the fact that outside of only one, and I repeat one breakout season back in 2007 (5 years ago) Braylon Edwards has been nothing more than a dime a dozen type of NFL WR.

    He's had seasons of only 15, 32, 45, 53, 55 and 61 receptions.

    He's had seasons of only 0, 3, 3, 4, 6 and 7 TD receptions.

    He's just never been anything special. Below average to above average at the very best. No chance Edwards started over Hill.

    There is no chance in hell that a WR who's 29 years old in Edwards, coming off an injury plagued season, as a shell of what he once was during the 2007 season would EVER start over a 21 year old kid who's 6'4, blazing fast 4.3 flat type of speed, top of the line, more like outstanding jumping/leaping ability, a true deep threat who led the entire Nation in average yards per receptions, ranked as the Countries #2 run blocking wide out coming out of college with all the potential/ability to become a red zone monster/freak of nature. No chance Edwards would have been able to start over that, none what so ever.

    Wake up man.

    Says who you?

    BE couldn't hold the 3rd spot on a team that was desperate for offense last year and then was injured. But people fail to realize he sucked before he was injured. You don't even know if he could make a teams roster, never mind become a 2 over Hill.

    Wake up, it's not 2010.

    I already know the answer to this but.......you would prefer Schillens to Braylon? Because thats really what the comparison is. The Jets were drafting Hill no matter what. It really comes down to who you would want as the #3/4 veteran WR. The roles would be exactly as they are now, just with Braylon you have a lot more familiarity with Sanchez already.

    Don't question me, call out our front office. But yeah, there is no way Braylon Edwards would have been willing to be OUR 4th WR behind Holmes and Hill on the outside with Kerley coming out of the slot... Without first becoming a locker room cancer. No way Edwards would have been (or is) willing to become the Jets 4th WR. Not a chance.

    The question was who you would rather have in that role. Between the two, Braylon and Schillens, who would have been your choice?

    As of right now, it's Schillens. He's 3 years younger and participating in training camp. It's also obvious that our front office prefers Chaz over Edwards.

    Braylon starting over Hill? That's a joke I hope lol. And Schillens was obviously recommended by our receivers coach, Lal, easy call, you go with your coach's recommendation.

    Some Jet fans seem to think we're still in 2007 ala the only season where Edwards has EVER put up #1 WR numbers. Nothing more than a dime a dozen WR with a history of "the drops".

    Why do you think that Sparano wont go three wide and not put the wr in the slot. If Hill or Holmes run the 9 on 1st down, will you send him deep again or throw in the fresh legs. Why can't Edwards line up outside and holmes goes int the slot, Did't Rex say the other day that he might put Holmes in the slot?

    You guys are rich. "hey, no way braylon - his stats last year!" but Schilens... i mean that guy, he tore it up. with his 1 reception and mr.glass body.


    Is it a coincidence the same poeple who think Hill is an automatic #2 week one, those same folks spend NEXT TO NO TIME in the draft forum?

    "let me tell you something about stephen hill, this guy eats his corn, like his eats tacklers. blah blah, I'm a Styrofoam human.."

    --NYDefensefloridawhatever
    How about you captain crunch? You don't know a god damn thing about college ball, but hey - as soon as that a$$hole puts on a Jets jersey, you know what time he takes his daily deuce, hey?


    Hill is going to take some time to develop you guys. Get used to that notion. He's a situational player in year #1. Braylon would have taken more snaps. Chaz will eclipse the sun i'm sure at some point this offseason, but he'll catch a butterfly in the knee and be pronounced dead on the scene.

    Wake up man.
    No, stats prove Edwards is better.

    Hills total career yards = 0
    Edwards total = 5,323 yards

    It's not even close!
