    Holmes is an overrated cancer. While BE isn't a top 10 wr, he was a better fit for our offense. its very obvious that Mark and Holmes have no chemistry, and are rarely on the same page. Mark and BE had much better chemistry and was BE was just better overall.
    Braylonites = Tebowites

    Which WR put up big numbers, with that prolific rookie and second year passer (Mark Sanchez)? The 900+ yards he put up in 15 games in 2010 sure was a lot better than the 600 yards Holmes put up in 16 games in 2011.

    BE in a sparano offense with Hill and Kerley would be nice.
    Homers only like people on their current team.

    They think Pouha is important, and that Holmes is a world beater.

    You're joking, right?

    Why do the BEites bring Holmes into the mix? What does Holmes have to do with Edwards not making the catch for Seattle?

    And really, can the desperate calls that BE was better, is a better fit and had better chemistry stop, it sounds goofy.

    No coach or GM in the NFL would take Braylon over Hill, even without taking age into consideration.
    So, Braylon never caught a ball when it counted?

    Hill has a lot of potential, but he will drop a lot of balls this year. He's a body catcher, and that can be problematic. I'll bet anyone on here that Hill will have a problem with drops this year.

    This is the typical overreaction to one game that we usually see around here. After the Cowboys game last year, everyone was talking about how Plaxico Burress was an upgrade to Braylon Edwards. We know how that turned out.

    Hopefully he gets cut after this game and the Jets can sign him to be our 4 guy

    It's ONE game. Braylon Edwards has had huge games before. Go look at 2007, the one year he played with a passer (sure, it was a fluke season for Derek Anderson, but that's the only time BE has played with a good passer).

    Hill has a TON of potential. We should be happy about today's game. But, he's going to have his struggles, too. Games where he will do nothing. And when that happens, there will be people proclaiming that he sucks.

    The FACT that someone CONTINUES to create Braylon threads goes to show that there are posters who are more obsessive over ex-jets players than I was.

    So that's your angle. You're a Braylon fan boy. I couldn't see how anyone could rationally say the things you were saying about Holmes in the other thread, but it all makes sense now.

    And who ever said the Braylonites are no different than the Tebowites, you are right on.

    That's conjecture, projection, presumption, what have you.

    Point is pretty clear. Today, Hill had a big day while BE let the game winning TD slip right through his hands. Today, I'm glad we had Hill and not BE.

    So, you don't think a rookie WR from that Georgia Tech gimmick offense is going to struggle? If you've watched Hill play at all, in college or otherwise, you know his hands are a problem. That's just a fact.

    He'll become a better catcher of the football with time. But he definitely has the dropsies. Young players struggle, it happens.

    It's very likely that he will struggle. Then again, it's possible that he'll do just fine and won't struggle any more than many vet receivers do now and then.

    Just as an aside, in a system that is so run oriented, it's difficult to tell how much emphasis they put on teaching/coaching/developing their WRs. I'm willing to bet that the Jets have already spent a hell of a lot more time on Hill's hands than they ever did at GT.

    He'll still have some drops this year, almost all receivers do. Question is whether he'll have more than is acceptable.

    He's insanely raw. Considering it takes polished WRs coming out of college a year or two to become good in the NFL, it will be rough at times for Hill.

    And that's what makes today that much more impressive. For a guy that raw to do what he did in his first NFL game is insane.
