Jets shouldn’t suspend Edwards Dan Leberfeld

It would be ridiculous for the Jets to suspend or de-activate wide receiver Braylon Edwards (DWI) for a game.

That would make no sense.

Herman Edwards once de-activated defensive end John Abraham for a game following a drunk driving offense.

I never thought that made sense.

This is the NFL. There are 16 regular season games. Each one is of enormous significance. This isn’t baseball.

When you suspend or de-activate a star player, you are hurting the team’s chances of winning one of these games.

This isn’t college or Little League. You don’t risk a game to send a message.

The message can be sent with a big fine and community service.
