Browns Fans Can Rejoice, Braylon Edwards Is No Better in New York.

On another sad Sunday of watching Cleveland Browns football, I was a witness to some familiar football play that actually made me smile as a Browns fan.

It wasn't even during the Browns game.

Wait, I did smile when Joshua Cribbs returned a 98 yard kick for a touchdown, but the other smile came while I was watching the Jets play at home against the Bills.

Specifically, there were a few offensive plays that the Jets had that made me remember how much I don't miss former Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

So, after the Browns game ended, CBS Sports had a doubleheader and the game that followed was the Patriots-Titans game; but since that game was such a blowout, CBS switched over to the Jets-Bills game in the third quarter and did they ever time it right.

To back track quickly, when the Browns traded Edwards, the Jets were riding high in the AFC East at 3-1. But last week, they lost to Miami and Edwards had a decent game after just getting traded.

But that wouldn't last that long.

Fast-forward to Sunday in the third quarter and during one of the Jets' offensive series, quarterback Mark Sanchez threw a pass that Edwards jumped up for (no surprise there) and it hit his hands and bounced off into a Bills defenders hands for an interception.

That sounds about right!

The next offensive series for the Jets didn't go any better because Sanchez targeted Edwards again and the ball hit him right in the hands, then fell to the ground incomplete.

That sounds right too!

The very next play, Sanchez eyes up Edwards and he makes a break in his route, but in the wrong direction. It was too late because Sanchez threw the ball to where Edwards was supposed to be and instead, there was a Bills defender standing there and picking off the pass.

Same old Edwards running the wrong routes, dropping passes, and being so predictable that the defense can anticipate the ball and pick it off.

Jets fans are probably making excuses that Sanchez is a rookie quarterback and he made many mistakes today, but the truth is, Edwards was being Edwards just like he was in Cleveland.

Sorry Jets fans, you are now 0-2 with Edwards and you may not see that he is the issue now, but in a few more weeks, his bad play will drive you crazy.

When that happens, let's see how Edwards likes the negative attention that the New York media will bring upon him(He will wish that he was back in Cleveland with our smaller market).

Sorry Edwards, but you divorced Browns fans long ago and we don't want you back.

In closing, seeing those few plays unfold on offense really made me feel good inside for a moment despite another loss by the Browns to the Steelers today.
