    Braylons heart is seemingly more ingrained as a Jet. Holmes though is the type of playmaker that would be harder to replace. If you’re going for heart and soul, go Braylon. If you’re going for rote production potential in the clutch and down the field, go with Holmes.

    tj the jet report

  • I want to vote for Braylon Edwards & Santonio Holmes. It wouldn’t be right to let them go, they made more moves than American airlines last season to bring the team to the playoffs, to let them go would be absurd. Please take in consideration both of them, they’re young and very promising to make it for a super bowl. What makes a good team, is definitely not having new players, Is getting what you have better, they know each others to make the right moves with Sanchez. I can’t picture the team without them. They made a lot of the best memories of last season. Is there anybody I can talk to, I’m a Huge fan. Rex is a great coach but he also need the right people with him if we want to see them make it for the super bowl, if not is just gonna be another excited season and that’s all, Again! Xoxo

    Bray all the way, without his big plays Holmes wouldn`t have got some of his. AND he realy wants to be a Jet and will cost less.
    For me his TD against the Pats is what Rex means by play like a Jet!! My MVP of the season.
    Getting Braylon back is a no brainer.

    Gotta keep Santonio. Edwards can disappear at times. Santonio doesn’t disappear and he is unbelieveably clutch. He showed it in Pittsburgh and he continued it last season. You could see the difference in the Jets offense the minute Santonio came back.

  • I am going with Braylon Edwards

  • Joe Caporoso

    I am not sure there is a really a wrong answer in this debate. TJ, I kind of hear where you are coming from. Braylon seems a litle more loyal to the team, probably because he has been there longer and they stood by him during DUI. If we are going on football alone, Santonio is a better all around WR, but he is more expensive and could cause more problems down the road.

    Tough call..

  • but santonio is not the better reciever a couple of years ago we were all saying that braylon was one of the best young recievers in the game but because of his situation he never really had a chance to capitalize on it and become consistent with it while santonio was playing on superbowl teams
