..yeah, and Mardy Gilyard, Chaz Schilens, Patrick Turner, Stephen Hill, and Clyde Gates have 3 TD's COMBINED! Here's the thing people don't understand; Edwards doesn't have to be better than he was in 2009.. he just needs to be better than the aforementioned this season. Next season his objective will be to play behind Holmes, and compete with Kerley & Hill between the #2 & #3 WR spot(s).
These are all very reasonable expectations for a 29 year old receiver, that already has a rapport with this organization\quarterback.

An argument could be made that Sanchez was the best QB to ever to play with Braylon, which is why he had success in NY. Granted his final days with the Browns, Seahawks, and 49ers left more to be desired.. but you could absolutely attribute that to the QB's that were throwing to him. When looking at BE's career, outside of Sanchez, you got: Ken Dorsey, Brady Quinn, Derek Anderson, Richard Bartel, Russell Wilson, and Alex Smith as the group of field generals hurling passes his way. Smith is probably the best of the bunch.. but to throw 16 TD's last season on a team that won 13 games, should tell you all you need to know why he's a currently backup now.

Smith had 13 TD through 8.5 games this season...one could argue he was improving, though TD passes are a little like saves in baseball...you can manipulate that number a bit. If you're at the 3 yard line and you punch it in or throw for a TD, was the QB who helped orchestrate the drive worse for not having thrown a little dunk pass? The QB rating system would lead one to believe that.

It's obvious that Smith's coach and his franchise weren't in love with him. But he played well enough this season and last that he shouldn't have much trouble getting a shot somewhere else...there are always teams looking for QBs.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

While he'll find a starting job somewhere, his career as a relevant QB is likely over. He'll have the same problem with any team he goes to that he had for the first four years of his career. Crappy coaching and awful pass protection. It might be different if he lands in Arizona with Fitzgerald to throw to.

Staying on topic, CRAZY ass stat courtesy WFAN.... *Outside the Jets, over the last 40 regular season games played with the Browns, Seahawks, & 49ers (going all the way back to the 2007 season) Braylon Edwards has caught only 5 touchdown passes!! 5 TD's over the span of 40 games!! --not including the 2009 or 2010 seasons with the Jets!

Amazing how this guy performed well with the Jets and seemingly no one else throughout his career. It's actually astonishing that he has 40 career TD's.

I am going to agree with Beezer on this one. I like the Edwards acquisition. Regardless of the past few years Braylon Edwards is the best WR on this team and I include a heathy Holmes in this assessment. They should not have dropped him in the first place.

It's not about playing with a "great" quarterback, it's about playing with the RIGHT quarterback.
Dustin Keller had the same amount of yards, receptions, and touchdowns playing with Brett Favre his first year, as he did with Mark Sanchez the season after. Does that mean Sanchez is as good as Favre? How about Burress & Cotchery for that matter? Between 2004 & 2012 Plaxico has 5 TD's in 14 games with the Steelers. Yet, he had 8 last season on the Jets in 16 games. Likewise, through the 2 years J-Co's been with Pittsburgh in 2011 & 2012, he's generated 2 TD's in 24 games. Although, the 2 seasons with Sanchez (28 games) between 2009 & 2010, Jericho had 6 TD's!

I guess Sanchez > Roethlisberger right??
..or maybe chemistry is based on more than just who's rated higher in Madden?

Bottom five QB'ing in the league, bottom seven-ten running game, bottom half offensive line and 32nd by a mile talent at WR/TE. Not to mention clueless Sparano calling the plays.

not bottom 5. He is the single worst starter in football. I'd rather have Batch, David Carr, TJ Yates, Gradkowski...and a slew of other backups over that piece of sh!t

Brady Quinn and whatever UPS guy the Cardinals throw out are worse than Sanchez. Blaine Gabbert's worse too.

lol another brilliant playcall by the staff, after running for two first downs, chuck it deep with Sanchez when he already has no confidence.

Sanchez seriously needs to be cut after this game, $8 million or no $8 million. Just awful.

Jets still have another shot at this too. If the Titans weren't up by 4, this would me taking the safety the obvious play. Can't do that here.
