Is Braylon a terminal head case, or will Rex Ryan turn him around?  If Ryan can't turn him around, will he grill and eat him?

Will Limas work his way out of the doghouse and show that he was a first-round talent who we got for a steal?  Or is he on the Willie Reid career course?

I'm playing the odds and assuming they are BOTH busts.

That being said Bust #1 (BE) has more catches on the books, so he's more likely to "win" this battle of the titans.

I'll spot ya all of Edwards' receptions that pre-date the 2009 season (including his monster '07 season numbers) and Limas still won't come close to matching Wailin's production.

Edit:  Wtf?  5 people actually think Sweed will outperform Edwards longterm?  Level?

I must have misread it -- I was assuming their numbers from here on out. I think Braylon's gonna pull a Plaxico within a couple of years and Sweed will become a solid #3 or #4 receiver for a few years.

I want to change my vote.  Did anyone see him the game last night?  He had at least two killer catches.

I missed his TD catch and only saw a quick replay, so I may not have properly processed what I saw...or thought I saw.

Did he get both feet in?

What I saw was him getting one foot in, then pogo-sticking back and getting the same foot in, before going out of bounds. I think it was his left foot. One of the announcers said something like, "there's one and there's two..." but it was the same foot. Unless I just missed him getting the other foot down.

Anyone.

Can't help ya.  I'll watch the TiVo later, but I spent most of the game finishing putting in the cement front stoop to go with the new storm door I installed last weekend.  Mrs. Finny is trying to kill me with the honeydew.

Didn't you buy a new flat screen within the last year? WTF?

Might as well be using the Penso B&W set, if you're only catching the odd glimpse.

Nah, considered it, but it's looking good for a new one this year.  Costco has the Samsung I like on sale, plus slightly bigger than I had lobbied for before.

So it's easier to watch from the front stoop.
