    I think I might make that part of my signature.

    Tanny did not want to admit he made a mistake by letting Braylon go in the first place. If he signed Braylon this year he would be pretty much admitting he made a mistake. Nothing Tanny has done leads me to believe he will ever admit to making a personnel mistake.

    Yes but Kerley can't get on the field and the rest of the group has been dropping passes left and right.

    Does not sound encouraging.

    I'd be shocked if Tanny didn't bring in a vet WR in the next couple of weeks.

    All depends on who is available.

    It's practice...It's normal. They aren't going to catch every one.

    Absolutely.

    It's a matter of analyzing current rosters and targeting potential cuts.

    I don't think it is that. I think after we gave Holmes all of that money it was impossible to sign Braylon to a contract that didn't look like a slap in the face. I got the impression that Braylon wanted big money from the Jets and he wasn't going to take a small contract after Holmes got the big one. Not to mention the Nnamdi clusterphuck that almost cost us Cro. Looking back, the Jets handled that FA frenzy poorly.

    I have heard him criticize his own personnel decisions before but I understand what you mean. I also think this Ducasse/Slauson competition in camp has something to do with that. I think they are trying to force him into a starting role to not look bad. IMO Ducasse was a "Tanny pick" so I think he takes that one personally.

    To start the season, sure. And if Hill and Kerley played well, a guy like Edwards would be relegated to the #4 and just have to deal with it.

    My concern is that a lot of faith is being placed in a rookie and a 2nd-year guy that looked good in the slot but didn't exactly set the world on fire.

    Last year, the excuse for Sanchez was, "he didn't have anyone to throw to." A one-year deal for an Edwards type eliminates that excuse and then we can get a better gauge Sanchez's overall performance.

    I guess I'm lost at what reason the Jets would have had to NOT sign Edwards. Money was an issue last year - what's the reason this year?

    This is the NFL.

    There have been too many drops from the sound of things.

    Sanchez is coming off a season in which his confidence took a major hit.

    He needs guys who can hold onto the ball under pressure. Dropping passes in a limited contact situation in practice (especially when you need to impress your coaches) is not a good sign,

    I have no worries about the WR group at all. I think it is our best group in a while. We DO NOT need another aging retread receiver. Use our young players.

    And the Kerley thing is a motivational tactic. The odds of Kerley not being th go to 3rd down go is zero. They just want him to take it to the next level, and when they did a similar thing last year and challenged him he really responded.

    I am not worried at all about the WR group.

    I think the Jets have a group that will be hungry, and will do anything the coaches ask of them. A far cry from the likes of Plax and Mason. Give me Hill, Kerley, Schillens, Turner/White along with Tone, and we'll be more than fine.

    Other teams in the past have gone with young WR's. Why can't we?

    Schilens said Cromartie's comments were a "slight" and he would not have said it.

    Apparently, despite the fact that it is early in camp, this QB to WR group is not looking impressive. Hopefully that will change ...

    **

    To my mind Tannenbaum had to hold off on Braylon until Rex saw enough at camp of our current crop of WRs.

    Mistake? Since Braylon was not resigned by the Jets, he has caught 15 passes.

    If he is lucky, he will be the number 4 receiver on the seahawks as Rice, Baldwin and tate are all better then him.

    Im am not a Tanny fan, but not resigning braylon was the right move.
