    Compare that to a guy like Mike Wallace who does that sh*t on pretty much a weekly basis.
    I don't know what your definition of "long ball" is but he had at least a dozen 30+ yard receptions in his 28 games here.

    LOL @ comparing him to Wallace. I don't think anyone expects that from Edwards.

    I wonder what Joe Pesci would think about all this?

    Too funny. Edwards was cathing bombs game in and game out--some of the biggest clutchest catches in years and folks want to denigrate what he did. He singlehandedly won games for us, either by catching the big TD or catching the huge 3rd down bomb that set up the TD.

    Edwards was a stud for the Jets.

    None of Edwards money is guaranteed unless he's on the roster week 1.

    Same for Owens excpet for the $65K signing bonus he got.

    Knucklehead? Most NFL players are....He got penalized vs the ****ing Pats man. I would've been doing the dougie vs those mother****ers as well! I'll let it slide bc of the competition.

    The truth is BE had the true #1 WR Traits that are so hard to come by in the NFL and the guy knew how to block. PLUS he wanted to be a jet unlike another WR who was only looking for the dough. He played tough every ****ing game.

    Not saying Jets should have given him a huge pay day or anything but bring back the guy who had great chemistry with the young QB for at least a look.
    +1 billion

    The knuckleheads are the posters on this board who try to come up with any BS they can to **** on this guy. It's unbelievable. I hope they enjoy the below average WR corps we currently have for the entire season. Enjoy!!

    D'brick - Faneca - Mangold - Moore - Woody

    I know i sure as hell do.
    The Jets miss Namath too. But he's not available either. Braylon is. Or was anyway. Dumbest move in years.

    But he wasn't a Mangini type.

    I doubt Braylon would be cut like he was in San Fran. He's actually HEALTHY now.
    Damn it!

    Steven Hill comes from a an offense in college that didnt throw the ball. Not exactly a guarantee that this Wr is legit

    BTW, How many plays did the JETS run with both Steven Hill and Sanchez on the field?

    Can someone find this stat because I cant remember one............
    Hill wasn't targeted until Tebow came in.

    I read that TO was targeted 5 times last night.

    Two passes were batted down by defenders. One was thrown behind him and one too high.

    The one that was on target, TO had beaten his man on a post pattern but let the ball slip through his fingers in the EZ.

    Carroll said that TO has looked really good in practice.

    I can't imagine the Hawks keeping both Edwards and TO. I would take either one if released.

    Edwards will also get a $65,000 roster bonus if he makes the team, but importantly, of the base salary, $270,000 of it is fully guaranteed.
    OK I thought both had to be guaranteed but I guess not. So 270k to play in preseason. I guess it is possible.at doesn't say TO got anything guaranteed so I am a little shocked there.

    I'm a huge Bray Bray fan. People overlook the importance of having a swag or flair on the team. I wish we had resigned him.

    I was just pointing out that, in my opinion, losing these players has left holes in the roster that are more essential to fix tan the WR.

    We have a serviceable WR corp. Having Andre Johnson, Megatron, and Welker wouldn't do us any good if our QB doesnt have the time to get the ball to them.


    We have an average stable of RBs. But, as we saw with thomas jones, average can be great with a dominant OL.

    This is the one thing i loved about the mangini years; he understood that the game was won in the trenches. It wasn't about the sexy pick, it was about building a great foundation for a team.

    Somewhere along the line, Woody, Rex, and Tanny seem to have forgotten this.

    Yea our D is gonna be real good. But how good can they really be if they're on the field for 45 min a game.

It was highlighted with another deep TD from Sanchez in our 2009 AFC Championship Game in Indy and him dragging two New England defenders into the endzone in our biggest playoff upset win ever.

    Say anything you want about Braylon...dumbass, distraction, etc. But don't call him average at best. He was the deep threat that gave a very mediocre offense the ability to actually do something in both the running and passing game.
    Agreed. BE was deadly when his considerable talents were harnessed properly
