Braylon Edwards, his Beard and his Mom Take Shots at The City of Cleveland

Braylon Edwards is like a middle class version of Roy Williams.

Physically gifted receiver who thinks he is a #1 but more suited to be a #2.  Hollywood attitude with Flintstones hands.

Once spent thousands of dollars in the club to try to woooooo Rhianna only to be given the gas face.  Has a some baby momma drama with a “model”.

Was traded to the New York Jets after punching a Lebron sidekick in the jaw.  Interesting fella and he had some interesting things to say about the city of Cleveland check it out:

“There’s nothing going on in Cleveland,” Edwards recently told Greg Bishop of the New York Times. “There’s no real estate. There’s no social life, no social networking. All the people who have something going on leave Cleveland. So Cleveland has nothing, and I came in there with a New York-type of essence. So what? That was the attitude I came in with. Like, this is who I am. They didn’t like the flash.”

Edwards’ mother also chimed in on her son’s struggles in Ohio. “He came from a team that was always looking for a savior to a team that knows how to win,” she said, apparently under the impression that he’d been traded not to the Jets, but to the Giants.

“No one would understand what he’s been through unless you’ve been drowning,” she added.

First off he sounds silly when he says “New York Essence” basically what he is saying in his mind he was too “Hollywood” for Cleveland, but that is not as bad as what his mom said.

First, Edwards was no savior.

Secondly, the Jets have been a mediocre team for past four decades, you could argue the Browns have had more success.

Lastly Edwards was paid a lot of money by the Browns, so I don’t care if he was playing in Alaska to compare it to “drowning” was ignorant and very insensitive.

The fact that the Jets traded for Santanio Holmes, knowing that he would be suspended should tell you all you need to know about what the Jets think about Edwards.

How about less talk about “Flash”, better performance on the field and keep mom away from those microphones.

  1. Braybeard needs to siddown, but I do give him props for snuffin one of LeBron's boys. The world finally caught up with the few of us who knew from jump that LeBron was a douchebag.

    LOL nicely put! Now I'm going to excuse your grammatical errors since you don't have me as your proofreader yet :))

  3. ryan says:

    That was pretty generous to consider Braylon a #2 receiver seeing as though he cant catch a thing. He was horrible here and blamed us hating him because he went to Michigan. We hated him because he was horrible and couldn't catch a routine pass. The Jets have found that out too.

    • Robert Littal says:

      I am probably am being generous to him, but he is better than Roy Williams. Low class comments by him

  4. Diondrea says:

    Braylon needs to put a sock in it before we start spilling the gay club secrets. Babymama drama doesn’t make the truth go away. Also, his groupie mama that got knocked up and got a ring from it needs to sit her noclass having butt down somewhere.

  5. Kevin Donalson says:

    While Braylon is an a–, what he is saying has some truth to it. He is not the first and probably won’t be the last to say it.

    I am not even a Professional Athlete, yet the people in my vocation who work Cleveland say the say thing.

    I just wish the mothers of these brothas would be quiet and let them be men and speak for themselves.

    • Robert Littal says:

      I won't saying he is lying, but putting himself of this pedestal is pretty weak and moist on his part.

  6. The Other P says:

    This is pretty ironic coming from a man from Detroit. Smh

  7. Aaron says:

    everything that Braylon said was completly true. Ohio in general is a boring ass place. I'd rather vacation in Denver than any were in Ohio. He is right about something else, Cleveland sports is dead and will be for at least 4 years. I hope you guys got another entertainment out maybe stay in church a few hours longer so you don't have to watch the sin that is cleveland football.
