This is the player you wanted and heralded his arrival like he was the second coming of Christ (like you do with every shiny new toy you get, only to eventually get sick of it and call for its head), Jet Fan. Have fun with Leon, who runs his mouth as much as your coach.

Braylon Edwards seems unhappy with play calling

Posted by Michael David Smith on January 25, 2010 10:05 AM ET
New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards got off to a big start on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. But after his 80-yard touchdown in the second quarter, Edwards never caught the ball again.

After the game, Edwards hinted that he wasn't pleased with the second-half play calling.

"I don't call the plays," Edwards said. "I just run them."

Edwards also said "We didn't have the same attitude" in the second half, and when reporters asked him if he felt like he wasn't used enough, he said, "I don't know. You have to interview the players and coaches. It just wasn't the same."

Both Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said they thought an appropriate number of plays were called for Edwards, although Schottenheimer added that the Colts shifted their coverage to make it harder to get Edwards open deep.

Asked if he was upset, Edwards said, "No disrespect, but you witnessed the game."

Braylon Edwards' dad says his son's college, not drops, brought flak from Browns fans"



http://www.cleveland.com/brown...ss_dad_says_his.html



Article:

Think about Braylon Edwards in the Super Bowl.

Other than Art Modell, who won "the Big Enchilada" after the 2000 season before his ownership of the Baltimore Ravens was bought out, is there a person more reviled by Browns fans than Edwards?

The fact that Edwards, too, can reach pro football's summit adds to the frustration of a sports town tormented by a history of near-misses and macabre twists of fate.

Edwards, traded to the New York Jets on Oct. 6, is one win from going to a place that has been unreachable for the Browns. All it will take is an upset victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

No wonder Edwards gave thanks after the Jets' playoff win over San Diego last Sunday to Browns coach Eric Mangini for trading him.

He is living the dream life in New York as his turbulent 41/2 years in Cleveland appear smaller in his rearview mirror.

His father, Stan, said the relationship between Edwards and Cleveland fans was never going to improve and he is "100 percent sure" the root of the problem lies with Edwards being a University of Michigan graduate in Ohio State country.

Edwards' record-setting season in 2007 could not erase his maize and blue colors in the eyes of Browns fans, the father said.

"You guys all hate him," Stan Edwards said in a telephone interview. "If there was continuity in the organization and there was one quarterback he was playing with and he was still making Pro Bowl after Pro Bowl, the relationship would have still been the same with the Cleveland fans."

Edwards does not think his son's history of dropped passes, or the perception of him disrespecting quarterback Charlie Frye in one memorable moment in a 2006 game, or his famous outspokenness, or his off-the-field incident right before his trade are in the same league as the Michigan affiliation.

"There have been who played for Michigan (Steve Everitt, Leroy Hoard, Derrick Alexander, Thom Darden) that didn't get the flak that Braylon got. I would agree with that," he said. "But the fact of the matter is there are so many people who didn't like him because he played for Michigan and gave him more crap and actually put our lives in danger on more than one occasion.

"But that's what fans do. Nobody can hold the fans accountable. It's virtually impossible. But Braylon's drops get talked about more in Cleveland because he is from Michigan. You can't tell me anything different."

Braylon Edwards declined to be interviewed for this story.

The senior Edwards was a running back for the Houston Oilers in the 1980s. He admits the drops are a problem for any receiver. But he maintains that his son's drops are magnified because his opportunities are fewer compared with receivers like Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald.

In their two playoff wins, the Jets have run the ball 80 times and thrown it 39. Edwards has four catches for 56 yards, and a few drops.

"Are the drops a problem? I think a drop's always a problem when it stops your team from being successful," Stan Edwards said. "Did Braylon's drops stop Cleveland from being successful? Probably in some drives. But Kellen Winslow dropped a lot of passes that never got talked about and you know that. Kellen Winslow never got talked about for always getting a false start. I know Kellen's dad very well and these are great people. But when Braylon did it, people [rip him]."

Edwards said his son has not come close to his potential.

"He's done some things that neither Randy, Larry, or T.O. [Terrell Owens] can do," Edwards said. "What those guys have had over him is better situations. Most of those guys have had one quarterback for an extended period of time.

"T.O. has moved [from] teams, but at least he's had the same quarterback for two years when he's been in certain areas. Had the same quarterback for two years in Philly. He never had to realize who he was getting the ball from. Randy knew who he was getting the ball from. Larry knew who he was getting the ball from.

"The one time Braylon had one year when he got the ball from the same guy, you saw the kind of year he had," he said, referring to 2007.

The trade gave Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez a fast, physical receiver the team was lacking. When Braylon Edwards joined them, the Jets were 3-1. With Edwards immediately thrust into a starting role, they lost five of their next six games. But they righted themselves in time to sneak into the playoffs as a wild card.

In 12 games with the Jets before the playoffs, Edwards had 35 catches for 541 yards and four touchdowns.

The elder Edwards said his son and Browns coach Eric Mangini "had a pretty damn good relationship, [but] I don't think he and coach Mangini were interested in letting the world know that."

So what's the difference between playing in New York and playing for the Browns?

"Let me tell you what I believe," Stan Edwards said. "The flow of communication . . . in the Jets' organization is immaculate. Everybody's on the same page. It appears that no one takes themselves seriously. Everybody knows their role, everybody is important.

"What I gathered . . . about the Cleveland Browns organization is it did not seem to have a lot of cohesion. It seemed like a lot of people there were for themselves, a lot of people there were trying to position themselves to either move up in the organization or get somebody removed from the organization. There wasn't a lot of cohesion.

"In the Jets' organization, what I've witnessed so far, it seems that everybody's there for one sole purpose -- to win football games.

"Now everybody will say that. But if you really mean that, you won't go out of your way to back-stab somebody else. You won't say anything behind somebody's back. You won't leak things to the media. And that stuff, from what I'm told and what I believe, is what happened in Cleveland. And that doesn't come from Braylon. There's tons of people I know there from former relationships."

Braylon Edwards probably will be a restricted free agent in 2010. The Jets reportedly plan to retain him by offering the one-year tender that would bring a first-round pick in compensation if another team would sign him.

Wherever Edwards winds up, he is expected to draw a one-game suspension next season for pleading no contest to a charge of aggravated disorderly conduct for punching a man outside a Cleveland nightclub Oct. 5 -- the night before he was traded.

Stan Edwards said he and Braylon have "never had a conversation about what happened that night."

"Personally, I didn't want to know because I didn't really want to understand why he thought he couldn't talk his way out of a situation," his father said.

It probably was the only time Braylon Edwards didn't talk his way out of a situation in 41/2 years in Cleveland.

(end)






INDIANAPOLIS - Braylon Edwards wasn't happy. After beating fill-in CB Jacob Lacey for an 80-yard touchdown in the second quarter, Edwards saw only three more passes thrown his way in Sunday's 30-17 AFC title loss to the Colts.

[b]Edwards said, "We didn't have the same attitude" in the second half. "Take that for what it is."

Asked if he felt under-utilized, Edwards said, "I don't know. You have to interview the players and coaches. It just wasn't the same."

Was he upset with the play-calling?

"No disrespect, but you witnessed the game," Edwards said.

Edwards (two catches for 100 yards, one drop) felt he was consistently beating Lacey in single coverage. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said he called "a number of" deep balls, but he claimed the Colts used a split-safety look on downs they didn't expect.

"I don't call the plays," Edwards said. "I just run them."

Mark Sanchez stayed clear of any second-guessing.

"I'm happy with the plays we got," he said.

Lacey started for the injured Jerraud Powers.

PEYTON MAD: Peyton Manning, stepping out of character, took a shot at the Jets' for their trash talking in the days leading up to the game.

"We stayed humble," he said in a TV interview on the field. "We kept our mouths shut."

Colts LB Clint Session mocked the Jets throughout the game, using his hands in a yak-yak motion toward the opposing bench. "I know personally that talking can't win a game," he said. "You've got to go out and perform."

BART PAIN: Bart Scott's ankle injury was more serious than the Jets had been letting on. He was removed in most dime packages, even some nickel packages. He was often replaced by DB James Ihedigbo, who played linebacker on some passing downs.

Scott was "really struggling to run," according to Rex Ryan, who called him a "one-legged man."

Scott wasn't available for comment after the game.

KICKING SELVES: Jay Feely, who had made seven straight field goals before yesterday, missed from 44 and 52 yards. The latter was a huge miss because it gave great field position to the Colts, and they responded with a 57-yard TD drive to take a 20-17 lead in the third quarter.

Ryan defended the decision, saying Feely was off because "of a timing issue." James Dearth's snap was inside, but holder Kellen Clemens seemed to get it down fast enough.

Actually Winslow is no better than Braylon.

Both were equally ****ty teammates that you don't win championships with.

Winslow just got more slack because he played with a badass attitude that Braylon didn't, but neither's bite matched their bark.

Peyton Manning said it perfectly about keeping their mouths shut and going about things the classy, disciplined way.

But of course, that went out the window in New York the moment they fired Coach Mangini.

You woudl think, being the smart Michigan guy he is, that he would STFU and try for a new contract but noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo



The OC (as usual) need to go under the buss for him to get his point across that and I quote "ME ME ME ME ME ME I WANT THE BALL ME ME ME ME ME, IT'S ALL ABOUT BE, ME ME ME"


Because that is what you want....a rookie chucking it up to Stonehand, ****ty route, gives up on ball in play Braylon Edwards....in a playoff game no less.

Gee...does the fact that he runs the wrong routes and drop the ball cause Sanchez not to look his way even when he's open?

Derek Anderson was reportedly thrilled when Braylon was traded. Now reports say Sanchez has lost confidence in Braylon.

Yet Braylon is a self-proclaimed #1 receiver.

I don't know which is worse- BpG bumping his own thread 4 times before someone commented or SuperAmmo reposting the same thing BpG posted and bumped in multiple threads earlier today.

The obsession is unreal. Edwards will likely resign after this season, given the free agency restrictions for teams in the "final four". To be honest, as long as the Jets draft a #3/slot WR, I'm completely okay with it.

It's time to let go.

It's true that the Jets got way to conservative in the 2nd half.
