The Jets’ acquisition of wide receiver Braylon Edwards was a brilliant move, but I’m not convinced it will work immediately. Consider the fact that Edwards, while familiar with several players on the current team, he hasn’t gone through enough practice to dominate mid-season the way Jets-Nation hopes he does. Within a few weeks I think he will progress greatly, but I see this as a move to set them up well better for 2010-2011. Timing,  play terminology, and familiarity with the Jets’ system are all things Edwards (who had no focus the last two years with players he KNEW) still must develop. Running backs and lineman can adjust quickly, but Edwards faces a huge uphill climb, and that is assuming once the ball arrives, he can actually hold onto it. An upgrade, no doubt, but give him a few weeks.
