    Good points in this thread.
    You make it sound like Edwards is a better receiver than Cotchery, which many people would dispute.

    Do you think Bodden would have likely made the same PI mistakes that Butler had? Mark Sanchez really isn't a good QB in my opinion. If we had the veteran presence of Bodden in the secondary it wouldn't have been as easy for Sanchez. I am not saying that the main reason we lost was because of the secondary but it was a huge factor in the loss. The defense has enough problems and missing one of our starting corners is just another problem.

    Really? I never heard anyone dispute that.

    Edwards is as good a receiver as Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Vincent Jackson... when he catches the ball.

    Edwards has the worst hands in the entire NFL.

    On Sunday, he was catching the ball.

    How many times have we watched Edwards, wide-open, drop the ball? A lot.

    I can't see how anyone would dispute that Edwards is a stud with severe dropsies.

    Bodden had bad days last year. Let' see how the season goes. Besides, many of those passing yards for Sanchez were over the middle.

    Edwards is a beast physically, but Cotchery runs crisp routes and has incredibly soft hands. I wouldn't be so quick to say its harder to cover Edwards.

    If only he weren't a jet...
