Braylon Edwards: Jets ‘babied’ Mark Sanchez

All Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez needed was a change of scenery, it seems. The former USC standout showed no signs of rust—even though he had not played in a regular-season game since 2012—and turned in an efficient performance in leading his new team to victory over the Texans when Nick Foles went down with a broken collarbone. The (1-8) New York Jets might be kicking...

Note to Eagles Media, Fans, Coaches and Teammates: Be Nice to Mark Sanchez

Since we don’t really “know” new Eagles QB Mark Sanchez, I couldn’t help but take notice what his ex-teammate had to say about him recently.  Eliot Shorr-Parks of put out an article yesterday where he had some interesting quotes from Braylon Edwards (taken from a radio interview on 97.5 the Fanatic). Edwards played with Sanchez in 2009 and 2010 so he has some inside...

Braylon Edwards feels Mark Sanchez was “babied” with Jets

Mark Sanchez was drafted by the New York Jets and was a baby according to his former teammate Braylon Edwards.  Well it seems like everyone is sticking up for the former USC Trojan quarterback and smashing the New York Jets organization.  First it was Drew Bledsoe, and now it is his former teammate. “You have […] The post Braylon Edwards feels Mark Sanchez was “babied...

Greg Little is talking a lot about the Browns heading into Thursday

I was one of Greg Little’s defenders. Yes, the dropped football jokes were fun, but they were really just recycled versions of the even more fun Braylon Edwards jokes. In the end, Greg Little was a second round pick, converted receiver coming off a year of inactivity. He was a relatively decent guy who wanted to be a great player. He tried really hard, but in the end wasn’t good...

Former Michigan Great Braylon Edwards Calls Out Wolverine WR Devin Funchess For Not Making A Catch

Devin Funchess is wearing No. 1 this season, the same number worn by former Michigan great Braylon Edwards, who was a unanimous first-team All-American and Fred Biletnikoff Award winner in his final year in Ann Arbor.  The Wolverines’ current wide receiver needs to play better if he’s going to sport No. 1, Edwards said today. Funchess has had a couple drops during Michigan’s...

Former Jet Braylon Edwards sees a team ‘in shambles’

AP Image The New York Jets are currently preparing to face the Denver Broncos on Sunday.  The Jets have lost four in a row after their 19-13 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 1.  What was expected to be a solid season for the Jets after an 8-8 season in 2013 already seems to be turning into a nightmare. The struggles of the Jets haven;t gone unnoticed.  Former wide receiver...

Braylon Edwards on Jets: ‘I see a team in shambles’

The New York Jets have lost four consecutive games heading into their Week 6 matchup with the Denver Broncos. They are a complete mess at the quarterback position, don’t have much talent in the defensive secondary and are currently being coached by a head man that’s seeing his seat get hotter by the week. Now with the media’s attention turning from the 2014 season to the future...

Braylon Edwards Rips Geno Smith And Rex Ryan (Video)

When you have a 1-4 record due to bad quarterback play, mediocre defense and coaching gaffs leading to lost games, everybody take shots. One of those shot takers is Braylon Edwards. Edwards has been very candid and critical of Head Coach Rex Ryan and Geno Smith. Edwards appeared with Chris Carlin on SportsNite on SNY where he was asked if the Jets’ head coach, has too much belief...

Notebook: Leidner overcomes nerves, shows off legs in Gophers win

If Mitch Leidner looked nervous Thursday, it's because he was. The Gophers' redshirt sophomore quarterback has been in this situation before, starting a college football game in front of tens of thousands of fans. So it's not that the experience was entirely new to him. What was different about Thursday's game against Eastern Illinois at TCF Bank Stadium, though,...

Gophers RB Edwards works to be pass-catching threat

MINNEAPOLIS -- As the rest of his teammates filed into the locker room after practice, Gophers running back Berkley Edwards remained on the field. His work wasn't done yet. Thwack. The spiraling ball, fired from a passing machine, hit him in the hands. A coach loaded another football. Thwack. Again, Edwards made the catch, paying close attention to how the ball hit him in the...

Gophers have clear leader in QB Leidner

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Gophers players know the drill now, which is perhaps why Friday's practice -- the first of fall camp -- felt so business-like. Head coach Jerry Kill is now in his fourth season, so everyone on the roster except the freshmen know what to expect from this coaching staff. And Kill and his cohorts know how to best lead the troops, having led this team to an improved...

Decisions… Greg Little or a Nissan?

There’s just something about former Cleveland Browns receivers that makes for good memes. Braylon Edwards was a favorite target (get it?) for Browns fans for years and now that we no longer have to hope that Greg Little figures it out, he’s became the latest favorite. I feel a little bit badly because Little was a hard worker and a decent enough guy, but man did he struggle to...

Gophers aerial attack largely grounded in spring game

MINNEAPOLIS -- There were expectations of an aerial show to take place during the Gophers football team's spring game on Saturday, so all eyes were naturally on the quarterback. While four different quarterbacks combined to throw for just 168 yards in a 19-0 game, the offense left the field at TCF Bank Stadium feeling pleased with the progress in spring while still acknowledging...

Top 5: Worst Seasons in Cleveland Browns History

In the 2013 season, the Cleveland Browns finished with a 4-12 record, their sixth straight losing season. Packed into those six years have been heaps of frustration, pain and sorrow; but believe or not, there have been plenty of worse seasons since the team was established in 1946. Therefore, I attempted the almost impossible task of isolating the worst five seasons in the history...

The Worst Wide Receiver Draft Pick: Willis Adams- Gone and Thankfully Forgotten

Usually with the worst draft pick segments, it’s a ton of fun to focus on guys that the Browns drafted in the here and now. Why? Because ever since the Browns came back into the league in 1999, that’s when everything went downhill, so naturally it’s safe to assume that all putrid picks, players and coaches graced the franchise during this period. Well, I decided to switch it...
