The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Braylon Edwards?

Fuck you.

That’s a pretty decent amount to give up, AND the guy’s contract is due after the year AND he apparently wants pretendous money AND he’s a drop machine AND you’re going to let his drops fuck with the head of a rookie QB AND he’s under investigation for picking on midgets outside a club at 2 AM AND you’ve decided to add this guy to the New York party circuit AND it’s a quarter of the way through the year and he doesn’t know the offense. What’s the downside!!!!

This is why you should never be excited about the Jets until the parade starts- because until then, they’re still the Jets.

  1. I completely disagree barring they didn’t give up a first round pick. They gave up a special teams linebacker and Stuckey. Braylon has been miserable in Ohio. Big surprise, he PLAYED FOR MICHIGAN!!! Give the guy a new start, new team, and new contract. It’s worth a shot.

    There’s a chance he misses a few games for conduct, this would give him time to settle in and practice. They probably have incentives and stipulations written into it too.

    What big name receiver doesn’t have those kind of issues? Marvin Harrison? Oh yeah… nevermind.

  2. I think I’d have a lot more sympathy for it if Edwards had the track record of success of a really top-class wideout, but in 4 full years he’s only breached 1,000 yards once. My worry is that you get all the headaches of a big name receiver, and only 2/3rds of the production. We shall see! He’s supposed to start against the Dolphins.

    FWIW, Football Outsiders’ advanced stats currently have Jerricho Cotchery as the #5 receiver in the league in the early going; Edwards is 47th. His previous rankings were 75th, 38th and 59th. There’s a million issues with those stats, but….

  3. I think it’s still too early to judge–by all accounts, the Jets gave up a 3rd and a 5th rounder, and Stuckey and the other guy don’t seem like too-big losses, either. It really does depend on how Edwards plays. I think this article sums it up well:

  4. I agree with Ken, this was a very good move. Yeah, he drops passes…but if you look at the league leaders in dropped passes year in and out its led by guys like TO, Moss and Plax. That’s because they are great route runners and get open all the time. Sanchez needs a play maker and that’s what Braylon is. Jerricho will be his go to, need a catch guy, Braylon will be the throw it up and let him go get it guy. That is clutch to have. The only player possibly available to get was Marshall, but he seems to have burried the hatchet. Bray is the next best thing.

  5. If you are watching this game, then now you understand why you ABSOLUTELY make the trade to get Bray!!!

  6. Hey, if they’d won, I’d be eating crow big time. I’m just saying, it’s going to be harder to make those catches in week 11 when he’s picking shell fragments out of his thigh at 2 AM in the VIP at Tits R Us 🙂
