Braylon Edwards has had some clutch catches for the Jets this season. He made “The Catch” in the AFC Wild Card game that changed an improbable field goal attempt to a very manageable one.
He isn’t a bad player, he is a good player (not great as he would lead you to believe). Definitely more effective than say Roy Williams of the Cowboys who he is often compared to.
On the field he has been doing a good job lately and he gets 100% credit for that. He is a big reason the Jets are allowed today to do all this trash talking.
Off the field humility is not Edwards strong suit.
The up-and-down emotions of Edwards now have the wide receiver feeling as confident as ever.
“I’m not going to lie — I remember what happened,” he told the New York Post, regarding the last meeting between the Jets and Pats. “But at the end of the day, I know we’re better than them.”
“We knew we would get back at them,” Edwards said. “We always knew. In the back of our minds, we always felt as though we would get back to them and it would be about us. It’s not even about revenge. That’s the regular season. Who cares, to be honest. Yeah, we got embarrassed. But that’s the regular season. This is the playoffs. We’re fighting for something so much different.”
The last statement by Edwards is the right attitude to have, what happened in the regular season doesn’t matter, just ask the Seattle Seahawks and I understand the Jets are feeling good after beating the Colts, but lets be honest here.
The Jets barely beat a Colts team that should not be confused with the dominant Colts teams of the 2000s.
As far as the Jets being better that the Patriots, that is fallacy, doesn’t mean they can’t beat them, but they aren’t a better team. When you get beat up like Jets did the last time they met the Patriots the intelligent move would be lay praise to the Patriots, make them think it will be easy and subtle try to lull them to sleep.
The last thing you want to do is give them higher motivation by acting all of a sudden you are the 85 Bears.
Then again no one ever confused Edwards of being very bright.
Meanwhile Edwards court date on DWI charges was moved from January 11th to March 7th. Edwards went to twitter to beg fans to help him stay in New York next year.
Sounds like a man who knows his girlfriend is thinking about leaving him, so he runs to her friends begging and pleading for help. I will say this it was probably 90% at mid-season that the Jets would part ways with Edwards, it is probably around 50/50 right now.
Another good game against the Patriots will increase his chances much more than twitter.
