New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards got off to a big start on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. But after his 80-yard touchdown in the second quarter, Edwards never caught the ball again.
After the game, Edwards hinted that he wasn’t pleased with the second-half play calling.
“I don’t call the plays,” Edwards said. “I just run them.”
Edwards also said “We didn’t have the same attitude” in the second half, and when reporters asked him if he felt like he wasn’t used enough, he said, “I don’t know. You have to interview the players and coaches. It just wasn’t the same.”
Both Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said they thought an appropriate number of plays were called for Edwards, although Schottenheimer added that the Colts shifted their coverage to make it harder to get Edwards open deep.
Asked if he was upset, Edwards said, “No disrespect, but you witnessed the game.”
