The Last Thing The Jets Need is Randy Moss

Despite there being an NFL lock out and at this point no football for next season, the rumors continue about the  Jets interest in signing Randy Moss. Here is my advice for the Jets, please don’t do it. The Patriots couldn’t wait to get rid of him last season and the Vikings and Titans regretted trading for him. The last thing the Jets need is a head case like Randy Moss on the team. The Jets already have enough nut jobs on the team, including the coach, and do not need another.

The Jets will have some options at wide receiver if there is a season. Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, and Brad Smith are all free agents. Most believe the Jets are likely to resign Holmes. Holmes is the best of the three and will get himself a nice sized contract. Smith is also a possibility to be back due to the fact that he will not likely demand a crazy contract. The issue then becomes Braylon Edwards. Edwards is going to want to get paid, but will the Jets be able to pay him what he wants? If Edwards decides to lower his demands, his return is a greater possibility. We have heard so much about how much he loves playing for Rex, so we will now see how true that is.

If it is between Moss and Edwards, give me Edwards. Edwards will demand a bigger contract, but is less of head case and much younger and better at this point in their careers. Even if Edwards contract demands are too high, don’t replace him with Moss. The Jets can find someone else to play wide receiver not named Braylon Edwards or Randy Moss. Plaxico Burress is getting out of jail. Give him a call.

    Well this guy is obviously not a jet fan to say anything bad about rex calling him a nut job, dammit he’s a genius. He talks, answers all the big questions and makes all the big statements so that his players don’t have to, he’s a great coach and protector. Now as far as mosss goes come on he did work for the patriots, and even when stuff hit the fan the other players on the team said he was a leader. Things went sour when he, within his rights, voiced his opinions while also saying he lovedhis team. He’s still got some of the besthands in the league as well as speed. Now I like edwards but I’ve seen him screw up great plays away too often, mainly his hands. Choosing youthful apotential over seasoned sure bets is ludicris. Now you call randy a nutcase but want a guy that shot himself…..who we lookin for cheddar bob?

      First off Rex Ryan is not a great coach. Maybe he can become a great coach, but not yet. Obviously we have a different view of what a great coach is. If you think I am going to come on here and be a homer, you have the wrong person. I am a Jet fan, but I am an honest and tell it like it is. If you don’t like it, too bad.
