News Flash – Braylon Edwards is completely full of himself

SPORTSbyBROOKS has the goods on the birthday party egomaniac and bust Braylon Edwards threw for himself in Detroit. Can you imagine having to eat some of this cake?

Braylon Edwards had a nice game for the Jets tonight, but . . . .

He got VERY lucky with that pass interference call. The commentators all agreed that it was a bad call, but Chuckie and the guys in the booth were so far up Braylon’s ass all night that they missed the obvious point – Braylon DROPPED that pass. Sure, it was a tough catch, but he dropped it! Steve Young did notice it and he mentioned it in the post-game show. I wonder if others at ESPN will notice it, or if they want to run with the “Edwards is God” silliness that we heard from Jon Gruden all night long. I’ve never heard a commentator gush so much over one player (and that includes John Madden’s love affair with Brett Favre). Gruden should be embarrassed.

Report: Browns trade Braylon Edwards to the Jets

I’ll give the new regime credit for moving fast on this one. ESPN is reporting that Braylon Edwards has been traded to the New York Jets in exchange for special teams player Jason Trusnik and draft picks.

Yesterday I asked whether it was time to give up on Braylon Edwards in light of the emergence of Mohamed Massaquoi and with Brian Robiskie as another young receiver that needs playing time to develop. Apparently the Browns were asking the same question. I think it’s a great move, and I think we can officially call Edwards a bust in Cleveland.

Is it time to give up on Braylon Edwards?

The last 24 hours have not been kind to Braylon Edwards. First, he dropped a pass on the first drive of the game yesterday vs the Bengals, and then watched Mohamed Massaquoi’s coming out party. Then, late last night (early this morning), it has been alleged that Edwards punched a friend of LeBron James. Now we’re hearing all sorts of things about a LeBron/Edwards feud.

As anyone surprised by this? What’s wrong with this guy?

Given Massaquoi’s performance, and with Brian Robiskie on the roster, should the Browns be wasting any time at all with Braylon Edwards in the lineup?

It will be interesting to see if the Browns or the NFL suspends Edwards for this incident. In many ways, they would be doing the Browns a favor. Edwards will not be a part of this organization long term. Why not focus on developing the young guys?
