I'm so done with this guy.

If his name was Jon Smith, he'd be on the street already. He's absolutely friggen terrible and is 100% living off his 07 season.


Just absolutely awful. Another example of the Giants FO knowing what they're doing and "Mr. T" and co. being clueless.

Now alligator arms over the middle.

This is disgusting.

What does this guy bring again other than height?

I'd take Ramses Barden over him today.

Oh well, who needs draft picks anyway?

:cry: And now with the challenge-that-is-sure-to-lose, quickly becoming a Ryan trademark.

Ugh. At least its not the 2nd half - we know how much Rex likes using those 2nd half TO's early.

There's a reason he leads the league in drops every year.

Its cuz...he drops the ball. A lot. And gives 0 effort on a bunch of others (3rd down earlier this game, deep ball against NE off the top of my head).

But hey, once every 5 games or so he'll make a super athletic play and score a TD so lets give him a fat extension too.

You think there might've been a reason Reese said "thanks, but no thanks" all offseason despite having a, to that point, slot receiver and a bunch of ?'s and rooks as his receiving core?

we dont know why he didnt get him but dropped balls or not was most likely the least of it.


You cant blast him for dropping the ball and then not give him his due when he makes a play to get your team a lead. What the hell is that? Hes on your team so when he scores, you celebrate. Not jump down him and rex's throat. Your a joke of a fan. If your this distasteful about Rex and the gang, I cant imagine how it was when herm was the head coach.


Its a bad season but the game is close. Your not being blown out game after game and Rex isnt putting DT to cover receiving TE. Hes a brilliant mind whos actually great to listen to. Oh and his team LOVES HIM. This fan however seems to ooze the hate. Like I said, Its a joke.

LOL I'm not even gonna debate this with you because it violates pretty much every rule this board has.

If you think Braylon Edwards has put forth the effort to be applauded by fans thus far, thats your call. I've watched something very different.

I do know this offense looked better in the first 3 games than its looked since. Is it Shockey-syndrome in the huddle? I don't know. But Braylon has not helped this team since coming over, and its not like they got him for free.

I would have rather had traded for someone else, like Brandon Marshall in the offseason. But, I understand why the Jets made the deal. We needed a vertical threat. It was apparent last year with Favre under center. Just no vertical passing game.

Braylon is going to drop the ball. It is not like you can change that. His drop tonight was huge, but you have to take the good with the bad. He will make plays that few other receivers can make. Take his touchdown catch versus Miami for example. Or his touchdown tonight. You cannot coach athleticism.

I think your post was extremely reactionary.

I'd hardly call a 8 game sample "reactionary".

If what we have to look forward to is 2 extraordinarily athletic plays every 8 games, countless drops/bonehead/poor effort plays in between and a probable contract dispute this offseason, sorry, but count me in the "not happy with this guy" group.

I mean 8 games - 23 catches? There are plenty of "athletic" guys who give you that week-to-week production.

Question: watching him play, do you see a guy who can grab 80 balls, 1300 yards, 15 TDs in a season? Like, next season? I just don't - and his stats otherwise STRONGLY suggest "situational deep threat", not "#1 receiver" - guess what price was paid for him in the trade, and what price his contract will be for?

well you have to think of it this way

"Im here for 7 more years"

Quote from a mets player we all know about. Granted the NL does not have guaranteed contracts but he is on your team and here possibly for a while longer. This includes the reactionary remarks you had towards your head coach of less than 1 season. Purely reactionary is a correct statement. Wait until its been a while until you can actually evaluate a player or coach. Especially ones whom have not even had a full season with said team yet. Keep in mind, this team wasnt a good team last year. Not much has changed. It takes time. Time of which you seem to be giving up on.

I'm not that up on some of the NFL rules but can we franchise him after the season guaranteeing he's payed in the top 5 of WR's yet only be comitted to one year?

You used to be allowed to franchise someone every other (two) year IIRC and they haven't used it probably since Abraham right? (I think I'm forgetting someone).

I'd like to see him have a full camp and play a full year in '10 before I'd want to commit long term to him.

What sucks is we only have 2 picks coming (1st and 2nd) now as well as a late pick (7th?) so we don't have a lot of options and those picks shoud be used on the DL line. I'd hate to give him a long term deal when no one is really sure what he is at this point. His one breakout year notwithstanding...

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

He made some unbelievable blocks in the run game against Tampa Bay.

They showed some replays on SNY and he hit Ronde Barber so hard one time that Barber was knocked off his feet and tied up another Buc defender on one of Thomas Jones' big runs.

I don't know if Edwards does this on a regular basis. And I'm not suggesting you should pay big bucks for a blocking wideout.

But it's an important part of the game that's often overlooked by fans.
