Regardless of whether Holmes or Braylon is the better player, the truth is that Sanchez had much better chemistry with Braylon. I still can't get over how good our passing offense looked that first month of 2010 -- aside from the opener -- while Holmes was out on suspension. Hasn't looked nearly as cohesive since then, and it's clear that Sanchez and Holmes are not a great pairing. We'll see if that changes this year, but I'm not holding my breath.
The offense looked great those games. Not sure what happened the opener; Sanchez looked a bit scared/tight. He refused to throw the ball more than five yards. But, games 2, 3, and 4, he looked better than he ever has. After Holmes came back, the offense went back to ****. I think it's the Shockey-Manning problem. Sanchez feels the need to force the ball to Holmes, or Holmes will be crying and pouting for the rest of the game. I also don't think Sanchez likes small receivers, considering he's not that accurate. The only elite sub 6'0" receiver I can think of his Steve Smith.
seattle has a ton of WR between rice, tate, baldwin, etc. I'd be surprised if they had both edwards and TO on their roster by week 1
There's a reason Seattle brought in Antonio Bryant for a tryout and signed Edwards and TO. They're not sure about Rice's health and they may not be completely happy with Tate. They brought these guys in for a reason.
But if Edwards gets cut, I hope the Jets swallow whatever differences they have and sign him.
Defies logic! All I do know is with BE, the offense was more than good enough for us to get to a SB and possibly win one. With BE on the team, we made the AFCG his two seasons on the team; the same cannot be said of Holmes. Sanchez had a go to bigtime wideout who could stretch the field, not to mention his blocking for the running game. We certainly didn't have that last year, and as we enter 2012, so many doubts remain on the offensive side of the ball especially oline and wr.
Instead of surrounding Mark with proven weapons like BE, the FO brings in Tebow which will only stifle the development of our young QB. Give Mark the weapons and a oline that can protect him and he has demonstrated he can get the job done. For example: 2009 and 2010.

Reason: Added concluding paragraph
Braylon > Holmes .... I would have ejected Holmes if that was the case. Another note .. This would have NEVER happened as a Jet ... When was the last time you saw Sanchez throw a bomb to a receiver that had one on one coverage deep ? 2010 ?
The Jets' FO and ownership is incapable of recognizing future talent. They only recognize it when it's beyond obvious, like Holmes or Plax in the SB. So they go after the overpriced semi-stars who make a big play now and then (Holmes) or has beens (Plax).
