Playing wide receiver for the New York Jets has not been a glamorous job for quite some time. Braylon Edwards knows that as well as anyone. Following some of his most productive years as a pro with the Cleveland Browns, Edwards was traded to the Jets in 2009. He caught only 88 balls in a little less than two seasons with New York, but the former Pro Bowler had no problem with playing alongside Mark Sanchez. The Jets coaches, however, are apparently a different story. Edwards tweeted the following on Monday: Don’t blame Sanchez. I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will probe it when given a proper chance — Braylon Edwards (@OfficialBraylon) December 4, 2012 Obviously Edwards meant “prove,” not “probe.” We all know how a certain Jets receiver felt about former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but Schottenheimer has since moved on. You can blame it on Sanchez, the Jets receivers or incompetency from the coaching staff, but the team’s offense is no better without Schottenheimer than it was with him. Blaming Sanchez for everything that has happened to the Jets this season would be unreasonable. Braylon has a point when he says a lot of their issues have been with play-calling and preparation, but I don’t think I would call Sanchez a “beast” based on anything we have seen from his NFL career. At this point there’s no reason to believe he’s even a capable NFL starter. H/T Shutdown Corner
