The New York Jets started the season with a Texan beatdown in ol' Houston then beat the rival New England Patriots in a grinder. Next they step on the Titan's throat and finally get put on blast against the Saints in New Orleans.

All this with starting QB Mark Sanchez at the helm...oh and he's a rookie.

The New York Jets apparently took the loss serious enough to go out and trade for  Edwards, that is Braylon not Trent Edwards.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports they trade to the Cleveland Browns Chansi Stuckey, Jason Trusnik and a pair of draft picks to Cleveland.

In my opinion the Browns' Mangini made out like a bandit. They lose a gifted player in Edwards but they weren't planning to go to the playoffs anyway or anytime in the near future. He does have good size but he had one big season two years ago. Since then he has been a headache of which now belongs to Eric Mangini and Mark Sanchez.

I think the Jets jumped on Edwards too quickly. I don't know if it was the loss to the Saints or they thought he would just be a nice addition to New York. His contract expires after another season and he will probably expect to be paid like a star wide-out, and if you decide to let him go into free agency then have wasted a third and a fifth-round pick.

I don't know much about Trusnik but I like Chansi Stuckey. He seemed to be a good compliment to Jericho Cotchery.

I think "if it aint broke then don't fix it."

With all that said, I like Edwards to make a good impact under Rex Ryan if he lives and plays as a professional football player rather than a diva.

Only time will tell if the move was right but Marvin Harrison was still available and maybe he would've brought his price down to be on a playoff caliber team.
