Braylon Edwards: The Time Altering, Game Erasing Wide Receiver

My favorite part about the Browns upset over the NY Giants on Monday Night has got to be Brayon Edwards comments before, during, and after the game. Edwards, who I can only assume is having a steamy sex affair with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, repeatedly insisted that a win against the Giants would "make us 2-0" and "give us a fresh start with a 14 game season."

Huh?

Now, I understand this sort of talk is usually just a mental ploy for players and coaches, but the tone in Edwards' voice seemed a bit too certain. What does he know that the rest of us don't? In his mind, what has happened to the first 3 games of the season? Have they fallen into some sort of football vortex?

Anyway, you can't argue with the advantage Braylon's scheduling theory gives the team. Here's what the new standings look like heading into next week:

AFC North

Cleveland Browns -- 2-0

Pittsburgh Steelers -- 4-1

Baltimore Ravens -- 2-3

Cincinnati Bengals -- 0-6

I just hope the Browns are able to pull out another win against Washington -- otherwise they could be facing a 0-0 record going into week 8.

I would like to hear him wax on about his stats this new season as well...as if he posts 8 points and 150 yrds every given sunday, or monday.

Haha - I know that Edwards' analysis doesn't account for the frustration of the first 3 games of the season, but DAMN! It's sad when you try to cut the guy down for staying positive. At least w/this attitude they go into each game still expecting to perform and to win.

Would you rather have them throw in the towel and give up on the season?? Are you already looking to grab that high draft pick?

does Braylons insite make Winslows balls shrink???

Haha - but where've you been, anyway?? Winslow had a staph infection, not elephantitis.
