    look at the detroit lions. they used top picks on stafford and johnson.
    Lions alos took pettigrew and jahvid best in round 1 and leshore in round 2. they have spending spending alot of high picks on offense.

    And all they have to show for it is one playoff loss.

    that is a naive comment. the lions are an up and coming team and the only way they're going to win their division is to be able to outscore GB.

    To be fair, the lions did spend like 7 top 10 picks on WRs. They just finally got lucky with CJ. Could you imagine if the Jets drafted like that?

    Right. The Jets are the only team in the NFL that seems to think you dont need play makers to win football games.

    everyone is content to blame their offensive failings on the qb and the rt.

    The Jets were 8 - 5 with 3 games left to play. This includes the non "elite" WR's on offense, the average RB in the backfield, the shoddy RT play and a non-existent pashrush.

    Plax wasnt the one throwing interceptions to defensive lineman and pick 6's down the stretch. You guys are putting way too much emphasis on what we dont have. You cannot have elite skill at every position.

    Other than Newton these guys will become the next Philip Rivers.

    We marginally improved the skill positions this year but remained the same in the OL front. Not good. So I expect the same from the offense as last year with a bunch more deep balls thrown to Hill. Which means a lot of 3 and outs. If only we had just kept the flight boys...
    The good news is the defense is much improved and if they can score a TD or two a game we should make the playoffs. Rex is in the wrong era of football.

    They also drafted Manningham, Steve Smith, Sinorice Moss, all WRs they drafted in the 2nd round. Again to make sure their QB had weapons.
    They also had Shockey and Barber!!!!

    Seahawks GM unsure if Owens, Edwards can co-exist

    By Dan Hanzus

    The Seattle Seahawks signed Terrell Owens on Aug. 6, one week after signing Braylon Edwards.


    On the surface, it appeared to be a duplicative move by the team. Edwards and Owens are essentially the same type of player, veteran pass-catchers who don't bring value on special teams.

    They also carry the reputation of being suspect locker room guys.

    During a Wednesday appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, general manager John Schneider was asked by NFL Network contributor Adam Schein if the Seahawks can trust T.O. and Edwards as teammates.

    "Adam, quite honestly, we are still evaluating that."

    It was a candid answer from the GM, and one that goes back to our initial theory that Owens and Edwards were heading for a death match in training camp.

    Owens had a fairly disastrous preseason debut against the Denver Broncos last weekend, finishing with zero catches on five targets, including a drop of a sure 46-yard touchdown pass from Matt Flynn.

    Edwards had two catches for 51 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener, but was shutout against the Broncos.

    Schneider's comment certainly makes it seem like the Seahawks' roster isn't big enough for both of them.
    T.O. anyone?

    But at least Edwards blocks with the best of them! On a Ground & Pound team that is extremely important. Holmes will not block! Hill does and Schillens too. If I had to pick between TO and Braylon, I'd say "welcome home Braylon"!

    Yeah, but nobody gets to choose but Seattle.

    If Seattle releases Braylon, I'm all for bringing him back here.

    ... is anyone buying this ESPN Stephen A crapola, that Mark is being set up to fail so the powers that be can justify having media mogul Tebow start at QB ?

    Meanwhile, talk from Niners camp is that Moss and Manningham are doing quite well.

    Great offseason for Tannenbomb.

    It doesn't change the fact that if Sanchez was magically transferred to any other team in the league right now he would be competing for the backup job.

    Seriously... with all the QB shuffling and drafting this year he is probably the worst starting QB in the league.

    Why the Jets FO never even entertained bringing back Braylon Edwards, I will never know. Up to this point, he always had the best chemistry with Sanchez. Instead, he was signed on the cheap by a team that he obviously would've passed up had the Jets called.

    I don't agree with this. The jury is really still out on Sanchez. Most people, including myself, think Sanchez is on his way out. But the fact still remains, he could come out of his bad play. Not saying it isn't possible.

    The biggest reason why I think this offense is having trouble is the OL. If they could just fix a couple of huge problem areas, I think there's a very real possibility they could start to play better.

    We have a ground and pound philosophy on offense. That requires a strong OL. If we get that, then the running game may suddenly spring into action. That would allow Sanchez to use play action - something he has always done quite well.

    So right now, as it stands, I guess you could say the author is correct. However, I still believe there is sufficient talent at the other positions on offense. If we fixed the OL, we might find that the offense has plenty of talent.
