    he was just released by the 49ers. We dont know how Greg Jennings will react after his injury and Braylon is a big, fast, athletic WR. Plus as the Packers have shown, you can never have too many targets.

    No way, Jennings will play in the play offs, and will be just fine

    The guy is coming off an injury. The 9 ers let him go just before the playoffs for a reason.

    The 49ers wouldn't release him without a good reason when they have only 3 receivers on the roster (2 injured).

    They are down to
    1. Crabtree
    2. Swain
    Yes, Brett Swain that was with us. Braylon must have some sort of problem with that injured knee he has.

    (face palm) saw this thread on other teams forums, didnt think it would land on here.

    He couldnt beat out any of our WRs. We dont need to beat the Lions. Jennings will be back after that. Not seeing the need for Edwards. Unless he wants to play defense

    We need more pass rushers, not more pass droppers. The guy in my avatar has got us covered on the latter.

    Unless you want someone like Finley with an ego trip that drops passes.

    I've heard of him, so he must be good. But TT won't bring him in because he is a tightwad, egomaniac, who won't do a damn thing to help this team. Bastard.

    Not crazy about guys like that.

    Am I the only one who was a bit concerned that Finley said the playoffs are "where stars are made" after the Bears game? Maybe I misinterpreted his intent, or something was cut off in the audio/video that would make it sound less like he wants a chance to be a star, rather than a chance to help this team win another Super Bowl.

    I don't dislike Finley. I'm very glad he's there and healthy this year. I just wish he would concern himself with the right things. Maybe I'm being too hard on him, but if he wants to be a "star", he needs to stop wanting to be a "star", imo.

    Once the season is past half way, I don't want any pick ups. This is a team and a family that has gone to war together for 15 weeks - and has a great shot at winning another Superbowl. A street free agent isn't going to contribute to the team's success, especially at receiver, so no need in bringing anyone in. Silly thread.

    This. If I'm not mistaken he didn't resign with the Jets because he wanted to be paid like a #1 receiver when he's barely a #2. Plus he's coming off injury and he has stone hands. We don't need any more wideouts who can't hold onto a football. You can never have enough targets, but Braylon Edwards isn't a target I'm interested in.

    I really would like to bring in someone to help on the d-line. If there is any position we need help right now, that's it.

    Not even going to dignify this with an answer because I was taught that if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    Does anybody think that we will look to sign another Howard Green for the post season?

    There's nothing to bring in!!!!:rolleyes: There's no Howard Greens out there. He got released last year and was available as a consequence. Teams rarely release anyone any good. Greens release was an aberation. We are what we are. Have to play the hand we have now and hope somehow our guys get coached up and play better than they have.
