    "Braylon is a me-first person"



    I don't know how many times I have seen this written in posts on these boards. I am curious how peolpe know this? Is it because he has been vocal about his lack of satisfaction with Cleveland? That's a pretty weak reason if you ask me. What about when Eli flat out refused to be drafted by the Chargers? Isn't that more selfish than expressing interest in being traded? Seriously, an unproven, unsigend, rookie QB was telling the team drafting him he didn't want to play for them?! That is beyond selfish and dwarfs anything Edwards has done.




    The point is this, just because a player at one time or anotherhas a"me-first" attitude it doesn't mean we can't win a superbowl with him (like we did with Eli).




    Are there real reasons that Edwards' attitude will stop us from being successful or are people just type-casting him because he is a young, black WR?

    No doubt about that, I just wish people were more aware of it (who knows maybe even one day they would think twice about doing it).

    attitude? I don't think so. didn't he pledge something like a million dollars for college scholarships for cleveland kids last year?

    I think the issue is that he's really only had one good year. his rookie year was cut short because of a knee injury. 61-884-6 his second year, pretty pedestrian. he had a great 3rd year and last year was disappointing.

    I'm not sure you're getting the 1,000 yard 10 TD guarantee you got when you had plax. would I still give up a 1 and 3 for him? well...yes i would. but theres risk involved, don't kid yourself.

    that's not the issue IMO. for that matter desean jackson would have been the best WR on the team. would you give up a 1 and 3 for him?

    the issue is: can this guy command safety help so they aren't looking at 8 in the box all the time? I think he can, but I don't think he's the sure thing you guys think he is, and there's money and picks involved to complicate things.

    I def think he demands saftey help. When he didn't, did u see what he did to us personally. Then we brought saftey help and he still raped us.

    We don't need a DeSean Jackson type WR imo.

    oh, he looked like a god in that game, no question. that was one of those perfect storm games where the browns HAD to win to keep their season alive. his other 15 games....not so much.

    again, I personally would pull the trigger on a first and third for edwards. I'd also say that there's some risk involved. but he does have a nose for the end zone, and that's a huge plus.
