Mike Francesa slams the Jets for their handling of Edwards

On Tuesday, Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for DUI.  In response, the Jets huffed and puffed, but they ultimately took no real action.  Edwards will play on Sunday night against the Dolphins, but he won’t start.  Some players (including cornerback Darrelle Revis) have expressed confusion regarding this punishment.

Mike Francesa of WFAN isn’t confused at all.  The Jets are “trying to scam everybody into this idea that they can hide behind the Players Association here and put Braylon Edwards on the field,” Francesa said Wednesday in an opening monologue during which he blasted the team for its handling of Edwards.

Calling it a “gutless and cowardly decision,” Francesa launched into an extended rant regarding the situation.

“[This is] the same Braylon Edwards who was partying with Stallworth when Stallworth went out in his car and killed somebody,” Francesa said.  “That didn’t seem to have any impact on Braylon Edwards who got in the car the other night tanked up and could have killed the people in the car, including two of his teammates and another innocent person, and maybe could have killed some family driving along the highway or some guy getting ready to work who has four kids at home.  The Jets care about that?  Nope.  They care about the Dolphins. . . .

“This is the same Braylon Edwards who beat up a 130-pound man.  You ever see the size of Braylon Edwards?  He beat up a 130-pound guy in the street.  Tough guy.  Tough guy.

“Or the same Braylon Edwards who went whipping through a Cleveland suburb at 120 miles an hour.  Ask Mr. T [G.M. Mike Tannenbaum] if he wants Braylon Edwards driving down the block where his kids play, driving 120 miles an hour.  You want Braylon Edwards driving through your neighborhood at 120 miles an hour, with absolutely no regard for anybody’s life?

“Braylon Edwards has learned one thing:  Rules don’t matter if you can catch a football.”

Though Francesa initially directed blame at owner Woody Johnson, Francesa later turned his attention to Tannenbaum.

“A couple of years ago you used to hear Tannenbaum talk about character, and we only want players who talk about character,” Francesa said.  “That’s before he linked up with Rex Ryan.  And that’s before he tried to save his job from guys like Bill Cowher.  Then he got a little nervous when guys like Bill Cowher started snooping around his job, and he started doing anything he had to do to win.  Which means putting guys like Edwards on the field after they get tanked up and drive through the streets of New York. . . .  Go back and listen to the things he used to say about the Jets before he linked up with Rex Ryan.  ‘We don’t want guys who are here who are not character guys.  We check everyone out.’”

One one specific point, Francesa is mildly inaccurate.  He believes that the NFLPA has no ability to force teams to dress or play players.  The labor deal, however, prevents disciplinary deactivations with pay.  That said, the player has to be willing to push the issue, and as Rosenthal pointed out earlier today Edwards has admitted that he wouldn’t have fought it

Francesa’s core message is on the money.  The Jets could have done much more to Edwards, and the idea that they didn’t out of deference to the union is cover for ensuring that a starting-caliber receiver is on the field.

So when you hear any of the various talking heads on ESPN (we noticed several of them doing it today) explaining that the Jets had no choice but to let Edwards play, it’s simply not true.  If the Jets wanted to send a message to Edwards and the rest of the locker room, they could have told Edwards to stay in New York this weekend.

But, as Francesa put it, the Jets care about the Dolphins.  And they want to beat the Dolphins.  And they think that Edwards will help them beat the Dolphins.

What else should we expect?  They traded for Edwards two days after he was arrested for assault.  Nearly a year later, they’re merely sleeping in the bed they made.

    “Braylon Edwards has learned one thing: Rules don’t matter if you can catch a football.”
    Considering the number of drops he’s had over the last few years, I’d be worried if I were him.

  2. dennis112484 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:33 PM

    he’s right. you look at the eagles and patriots and they have set formulas for these types of situations. you can give a guy like vick a second chance but guys like braylon and santonio are on their third or fourth chances. this is why the eagles and patriots have been good for a decade and the jets get people all excited and then flounder.

  3. getagrip10 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:33 PM

    I hate francesa but I did not realize this crap about edwards past, especially the stallworth stuff. That said he is 100% correct, for the first time I agree with Mike. I will never call him and tell him that, it will go straight to his head. edwards should be in jail.

  4. marktg30 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:34 PM

    Amen, Florio… Nice write up this go-round.

  5. SBS0311 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:36 PM

    No offense, but I wouldn’t be lauding a guy who trashes the Jets for one single reason: they don’t do his radio show.

  6. cancerdancer says: Sep 22, 2010 10:36 PM

    Braylon Edwards is a turd who can only be counted on to catch a rap sheet. I hope he is suspended and forced to cut that god awful beard off.

  7. cesty1020 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:36 PM

    So now you’re reporting on members of the media who are bashing the Jets as stories on this site. I guess it’s a bit of a departure from you just writing stories bashing the Jets, Florio.

  8. SomeGuyInIowa says: Sep 22, 2010 10:37 PM

    Talking about hitting the nail on the head. If you have a lot of money YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT. Thanks for the lesson Braylon and co.

  9. Caldon says: Sep 22, 2010 10:37 PM

    Mad respect to Mike Francesa

  10. aec4 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:37 PM

    Francesa has been anti jet since the time “mr t” wouldn’t go on wfanbefore going on espn radio. Mike doesn’t like Rex Ryan. Because of it he bashes the jets.

  11. Levito says: Sep 22, 2010 10:38 PM

    “The Jets could have done much more to Edwards, and the idea that they didn’t out of deference to the union is cover for ensuring that a starting-caliber receiver is on the field.”
    One one specific point, Florio is mildly inaccurate. Braylon Edwards is no longer a starting-caliber receiver. Unfortunately for the Jets, he’s their best receiver, until Santonio Holmes comes back.

  12. JaggedMark says: Sep 22, 2010 10:39 PM

    Damn now, here, here!
    I’ve never been much of a Francesa fan/listener, BUT THAT MAY CHANGE!
    I couldn’t agree with him more on this issue.

  13. getagrip10 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:39 PM

    Also ESPN is a bunch of @ss monkeys!!!

  14. Pale face says: Sep 22, 2010 10:40 PM

    He’s not even that good. imagine what he could get away with if he actually lived up to his hype.

  15. BrownsClown says: Sep 22, 2010 10:41 PM

    Tannenbaum wants players with CHARACTER. He, instead gets a character.
    And a sad one that is little more than mediocre.
    The JETS should cut their losses and get rid of this cancerous toad!

  16. richiew says: Sep 22, 2010 10:43 PM

    Francesa was kissing Parcells butt when he allowed the druggie LT to play without a problem. The cops in North Jersey/New York covered LTs problems for years. His pompous indignation only appears when a problem arises involving the Jets.

  17. realitypolice says: Sep 22, 2010 10:43 PM

    One one specific point, Francesa is mildly inaccurate. He believes that the NFLPA has no ability to force teams to dress or play players. The labor deal, however, prevents disciplinary deactivations with pay.
    ================================
    He didn’t say the union has no jurisdiction over deactivating players. He never, not once, and I listened to the whole thing live, said the union had no control over whether a player was activated or not. What he said was that the union can’t control playing time, and he’s right.
    Just because the Jets activate him, it doesn’t mean they have to play him. He can be active and dressed and sit on his helmet all afternoon and not step on the field once and the union can’t do anything about it.
    Besides, how much control can the union really have over activation/deactivation? The Buccaneers (Keyshawn Johnson) and the Eagles (Terrell Owens) both deactivated players for multiple games with pay and the union did nothing.

  18. ladybucs&steelersnut says: Sep 22, 2010 10:44 PM

    I never heard of this guy Francesa, but totally agree with all the quotes Florio put up here. It’s a shame that Braylon Edwards has learned nothing from partying with Stallworth the night HE got in his car & killed a man while drunk. Another supremely gifted athelete who thinks he is above the rules. And shame on the Jets for letting him keep believing that.
    I was one of the folks who listened to ESPN’s talking heads today Florio – thanx for clarifying that they were FOS.

  19. magni says: Sep 22, 2010 10:45 PM

    Francesa is on the mark on this one.
    If the Stallworth ordeal wasn’t a wake up call for Braylon, what is? You’d think it would have been a “but for the grace of God” kind of moments for him, but the guy doesn’t get it.
    Suspend him three games, tell him to get it together and then come back to the team when he’s ready to be a professional and to be a JET.
    Or is that all just talk Coach Ryan?

  20. pulsesteven says: Sep 22, 2010 10:45 PM

    Francesa is a Jet hater. None of the Jets or management appear on his show. He bashes them all the time. His idol, MM was a drunk and he supports him against Willie Mays all the time.
    Listen, what Edwards did was terrible, but sitting him on the bench does nothing. Let the courts handle it down the road. Go Jets.

  21. BigBear123 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:46 PM

    Braylon Edwards described as “flippant” after DWI
    Rosie pointed it out earlier Jets could have tried to make a stand and didn’t.
    Maybe it’s not too late for Woody Johnson to change his mind.
    “Flippant” behavior just shows how entitled he feels he is.
    Iceberg straight ahead and the watchman is asleep at his tower.

  22. Zach says: Sep 22, 2010 10:50 PM

    “Francesa has been anti jet since the time “mr t” wouldn’t go on wfanbefore going on espn radio. Mike doesn’t like Rex Ryan. Because of it he bashes the jets.”
    Which means what? That his statements aren’t true?

  23. sjif says: Sep 22, 2010 10:50 PM

    Reason number 379 for rooting against the Jets.

  26. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Sep 22, 2010 10:52 PM

    Francesa is one of the least respected NY talking heads, but he’s got a good point on slamming the Edwards.

  27. Blackn'Gold says: Sep 22, 2010 10:53 PM

    Braylon Edwards was arrested and he will have his day in court. Since when has the NFL become a branch of law enforcement? This must be part of the Roger Goodell, “Holier Than Thou” NFL. If Edwards needs to taught a lesson that’s what courts of law are for. The judge should be dealing out the punishment.
    GO STEELERS!

  28. ITSMEJC says: Sep 22, 2010 10:53 PM

    I love it! Been saying this all day long. The fact that they won’t bench him means that they are shook from that sweep last year. Bring it son you are going to take a p.r. hit and still get whooped. Sanchez can’t throw from his back.

  29. Burritto says: Sep 22, 2010 10:54 PM

    This is why Mike & The Mad Dog was a great show. Simply: honest.
    I’m proud to be from in WEEI land, but WFAN is the big dog in terrestrial sports radio. Keep it up, Francesa.

  30. Occam says: Sep 22, 2010 10:56 PM

    They matter less when you can throw a football.

  31. Chiefs2010 says: Sep 22, 2010 10:58 PM

    As a former avid Francesa fan.. I agree wholeheartedly…
    He certainly despises the Jets, but he’s right on here.
    Go Mike! And bring back the Mad Dog!!

  32. dawgpound1967 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:00 PM

    I,m not a big fan of some of florios articles either! But mike hit this one right on the head! Not only should the league suspend him, he should have to go through the same crap that everyone else does for a DUI and the other stuff he has pulled in the last year! If its any hard workin person who pulled this s*it in a one year period were out of a job? But as usual, beatin miami means more than teachin our kids a lesson on right and wrong. WOW?

  33. Broadwayjoe2010 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:00 PM

    Francesa is a propagandist who has a vendetta out for the Jets. Anyone who listens to his swayed swill can attest to that. He’s a bitter Giant fan and a paid crony / employee of the Yankees/Yes network that favors “Big faded Blue NY Giants”. Edwards got a DUI charge, he’s not a baby killer. Francesa should talk about his late boss that just got a 50 foot monument erected who was a convicted felon and thrown out of baseball twice. Francesa = a lot of diet coke gas. A pure phony with zero integrity

  34. SaintsFTW says: Sep 22, 2010 11:05 PM

    100% correct.

  35. Stinger9 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:06 PM

    Francesa hit the nail on the head.
    I hope nobody asks Dungy what he thinks since he’d be chastised for having an opinion like this.

  36. SpongeWorthy99 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:06 PM

    The Jets love criminals, that’s why they traded for Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards, whatever it takes to win, no ethics or morals required.

  37. PackAttack says: Sep 22, 2010 11:06 PM

    Spot on assessment… including the part about ESPN…

  38. william sizemore says: Sep 22, 2010 11:07 PM

    There is no care for stupid management, the owner has no balls, just tell your fat ass coach to leave him home for bringing shame to your team, or tell him to keep him out of the game, the sorry ass union can’t do crap about that, and the league also sucks, perhaps the Dolphins will take care of him, don’t count on it, this fool disrespect the owner, however he also deserve no respect, spineless, spineless, and on Sunday night, what do you expect every one to be talking about? Bill P.S The commissioner also has no leadership, drunk driving, nothing, touching an official in the heat of the battle, you guess it 25k.

  39. pacstud says: Sep 22, 2010 11:08 PM

    “Braylon Edwards has learned one thing: Rules don’t matter if you can catch a football.”
    Soooo, rules matter to Edwards?

  40. RochesterSal says: Sep 22, 2010 11:09 PM

    “Braylon Edwards has learned one thing: Rules don’t matter if you can catch a football.”
    Remember when Mangini was ridiculed last season for fining Edwards $1701 for repeated infractions? Looks like he was at least pro-actively trying to address the problem. Too bad that lesson was beyond Braylon’s capability to understand.

  42. weeb_ewbank says: Sep 22, 2010 11:11 PM

    The Jets (non) handling of this is sickening. And seriously, what kind of a narcissistic moron do you have to be to drink and drive in the first place – but to do it when a no-questions-asked-free-ride is a call away!?! If I’m driving, I’m not drinking. Period. But we’re not talking about a guy who had two beers with dinner here, he blew a .16. How the Jets organization can ignore this AND the decisions of Gholston and D’Brick (who ALSO could have been the ones to call for a ride) is appalling. I’m about as big a Jets fan as you’ll find, but looking the other way for this turd yet AGAIN just seems desperate and classless.

  43. razic says: Sep 22, 2010 11:11 PM

    Why are you the only media person huffing and puffing about this?
    VJ didn’t get suspended by the team after his DUI’s.
    Get over it.

  44. Smoke&Mirrors says: Sep 22, 2010 11:11 PM

    Francesa nails it.
    The best predictor of future behavior is the pattern of past behavior.
    The Jets are only fooling themselves by holding out hope that Braylon is anything that he has already proven himself to be: An overrated, underachieving, me-first, character risk.

  45. steeelfann says: Sep 22, 2010 11:12 PM

    Bad karma for the Jets, more bad karma.
    By the way, a DUI is serious. Point is, he could have been a baby killer. Or adult killer. Ask those who have lost someone to a drunken driver or had someone paralyzed. It is a life changer then.

  46. steven says: Sep 22, 2010 11:14 PM

    Yeah this coming from a notorious Jets hater and Giants fan.
    Giants, the team that let McKenzie play three days after a DWI arrest – while there were no rules in place saying they couldn’t suspend him.
    Wait, it gets so much better. How about Burress? TWO domestic disturbance calls that required restraining orders.
    A civil law suit because Burress made a deal to sponsor a local car place and never held up his end of the deal. Or paid for the car.
    Being pulled over for the same tints Braylon has, speeding, and changing lanes without signaling.
    Of course the Giants and Francesa only talk about these things AFTER Burress helps them win the Super Bowl. THAT’S when they get fed up with him. How convenient?
    Yeah, Francesa keeps it real.

  47. Turf says: Sep 22, 2010 11:14 PM

    You people are obsurd, Edwards had nothing to do with the Stallworth thing. If you were at a bar with a bunch of people and everyone left completely separate and someone else got in an accident would you like to be blamed for killing someone?? No. Don’t be rediculous. What he did was very very stupid but don’t try to drag unrelated issues into it.

  48. steeelfann says: Sep 22, 2010 11:15 PM

    However, here is the part that I don’t understand about Francesa’s article:
    “if you can catch a football, rules don’t matter.”
    Uhhm, how does this have anything to do with Braylon Edwards????

  49. NY28 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:17 PM

    This is a Joke. Now PFT is post articles on a spiteful clown that is known to blast people because when they won’t do his show (see, Shockey, Strahan, Jets because they are on ESPN radio and all ESPN personalities). He has NO credibility and neither does Florio. Secondly, does anyone blast the Dolphins for not suspending Ronnie Brown (or Will Allen) who had a DUI this year. Did the Chargers ever suspend Vincent Jackson? How about the Bengals with Rey Maualuga? Texans with Jacoby Jones? On and on. I will never excuse a DUI or defend Braylon. He’s an ass, but can someone help me understand why the Jets are HAVE to lay the hammer when the only team that I can recall that punished a player themselves (that I can recall) were the Steelers (Holmes) and The Jets back when (Abraham). The media is obessed with all things Jets.

  50. StreetBaller says: Sep 22, 2010 11:17 PM

    Name any team that has not had an issue. Did Francesca’s lovely Vikings cut or suspend every player on the party boat? The list goes on. Guess they should suspend Gholston and Ferguson, too, since they were in the car.
    I’ve seen a lot of these media guys when they are off the clock. Guess what? Many of the preachiest ones are far worse offenders, and Francesca is a leader in the hypocrite category…
    HEY FRANCESCA, wanna explain Steve Phillips as a regular on your show? How would you like it if he was driving in your neighborhood with your daughter in the passenger seat? here’s an excerpt about Phillips affair with a 22-year old:
    The news of Phillips’ affair came out roughly seven weeks after his wife filed for divorce. Phillips was originally suspended for his affair, but the publicity of the story eventually led to his firing.
    Now, Phillips makes weekly appearances on The Mike Francesa Show on WFAN in New York (WOW!) and is an analyst for Fanhouse.com. Is Fanhouse.com the halfway house for ESPN personalities booted for sexual misconduct?
    Just shows Francesca is a hypocrite.

  51. dawgpound1967 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:18 PM

    I cant believe these posts? He was twice the legal limit and drove with 3 passengers. He could have killed them or innocent drivers and there family? But as usual we gotta beat MIAMI? Wake up and see a problem as a problem to the rest of the public! But wait, lets beat MIAMI? Sad commenters who only care about what happens on sunday afternoon!

  52. Howie Handles says: Sep 22, 2010 11:19 PM

    Funny how some of you believe that Florio is always anti (insert team name here), but you’re just not paying attention to the facts here. Edwards is a turd, he should be penalized by his team, and the team is doing nothing about it. Edwards hasn’t just made one mistake, he’s had a career of making mistakes, on and off the field.
    Francesca and Florio are bashing the team for failing to back up their very own words. Some of you don’t care what players do off the field, criminally, unless is affects your very family. If any of us did this in our current professions, we’d have been fired long ago, not just given a day off with pay. On top of all that, Braylon Edwards isn’t that good, that’s the pathetic part.

  53. Albert040907 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:19 PM

    You know what I find hilarious, that the sad fact that this isn’t even news and that so many media outlets have little or no issue with this and yet you find the guy with an anti-jet biased and who has even claimed on the air he has a jet bias to further clarify your opinion. It’s easy for Edwards to say he won’t fight anything now thy he knows the punishment. You really don’t know that. And one you are making an observation assuming he is going to play. Yes let’s let the jets break the cba when no team will. You’re such a jet hater more than Francesca. You are seriously a no talent hack. This isn’t news. You’re acting like the jets are the only team to let this happen. Last time I checked the dolphins had a similar incident with Ronnie brown and even Randy stark used his car to push a police car but I guess assualt on an officer doesn’t mean anything. That’s even worse yet I didn’t see you bashing the dolphins. You even mocked Terry Bradshaw for hammering big Ben. You’re just as ridiculous as Francesca. Quit hating on espn, you will never get that job and it’s why you are a staple of the worst football assembly of Tony dungy, roids Harrison

  54. Dave says: Sep 22, 2010 11:20 PM

    You cannot take anything that this blowhard Giants fan has to say about the Jets seriously. They same guy who tries to discount everything the Jets ever do. The same guy who said the Jets didn’t really beat San Diego but we were handed a lucky break, although he didn’t mention The Giants lucky brake in Super Bowl 25. The guy is a complete jerk. Even no one at WFAN likes him, but other than Craig Carton, everyone is afraid of him because CBS management kisses his ass all the time. He treats his interns like crap as well as his producers (just ask Eddie Erickson, Chris Carlin, Sal Licata, and Mark Malusis).

  55. NY28 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:22 PM

    Also. Why do everyone have to be so quick to dish out punishment? Wouldn’t you want a chance to defend yourself? (although I can’t think of one in this case). This ioutrage that Edwards will get away with this is ridiculous. If convicted, this will become a conduct issue and he WILL be punished by the NFL. Also, he is a free agent and he will not get the contract that he wants. So he may lose games and millions. Do the Jets have to add more punishment on top of that>

  56. rk says: Sep 22, 2010 11:24 PM

    Nice of you Florio to mention that Francesa “HATES” the Jets. He has admitted so on his show basically. There are many reasons why, one of them being the Jets refuse to give him any players or coaches for his afternoon show. They do show up on his competitors shows as they carry the Jets games on radio. They also won’t because he’s been calling the organization clowns and fools and baffoons all year long. You think this guy might have an agenda?
    How about mentioning that even though Edwards said he would not file a claim if the Jets de-activated him, the union can still and would go ahead and do anyways. A player cannot dictate whether the union takes action, because its not about the player to the union, its about all the players.
    Your constant bashing of the Jets is so transparent and the amount of Jets fans who try and comment on this site and get blocked is a joke. What a shocker all the haters of the Jets get through and agree with every negative thing you say about the Jets. Amazing, guys with usernames that have Pats or Phins or Steelers in it, would agree with your Jets hating. Who would’ve thunk it?

  57. Zach says: Sep 22, 2010 11:24 PM

    “Besides, how much control can the union really have over activation/deactivat ion?”
    Keyshawn and TO weren’t being pushed for alcohol-related offenses though. Braylon would be, not matter what excuse the Jets used.
    “He’s a bitter Giant fan and a paid crony / employee of the Yankees/Yes network that favors “Big faded Blue NY Giants”. ”
    Straw Man Argument.
    Doesn’t matter who’s he a fan of or who signs his paycheck. His statements are CORRECT. Period.

  58. richiew says: Sep 22, 2010 11:25 PM

    80 DUI arrests in NFL in 2008. 2 players didn’t play the next game scheduled. Let the law run its course.

  59. MrHumble says: Sep 22, 2010 11:28 PM

    Great post Florio. Rex will cause the Jests to crash and burn as a team and as an organization.

  60. rk says: Sep 22, 2010 11:28 PM

    Tell me again where are all the people who want Ronnie Brown suspended?
    He was arrested in March for DUI, why because it happened before the season? Or is it because he’s not on the Jets? Hypocrites.

  61. ftomeo says: Sep 22, 2010 11:29 PM

    “So when you hear any of the various talking heads on ESPN (we noticed several of them doing it today) explaining that the Jets had no choice but to let Edwards play, it’s simply not true. If the Jets wanted to send a message to Edwards and the rest of the locker room, they could have told Edwards to stay in New York this weekend.”
    You say it five times per post, five posts per day — who the hell are you pointing fingers at?
    It’s perfectly clear that the Jets could have him ride the pine. They could even risk labor union action and it would all still be after the fact and they’d pay a fine and apologize. You’ve done more to obfuscate that the Jets are just being b!tches all week than any other broadcaster, reporter, blogger, radio personality I’ve listened to.

    1. Mike Francesa is not a fan of the Giants, nor is he paid by them.
    2. He is not employed by YES…his show is simulcast on YES because WFAN has a deal with them.
    3. Edwards got a DWI…clearly a worse offense than a DUI.
    4. Steinbrenner was not his boss.
    5. I am a Jets fan myself so I can be objective here.
    6. “Francesa is a propagandist who has a vendetta out for the Jets.”
    To borrow a quote from Zach:
    “Which means what? That his statements aren’t true?”
    The guy doesn’t get it. Cut Edwards loose.

  64. jonesy1124 says: Sep 22, 2010 11:34 PM

    Agreed. Its a DUI…who cares..There are plenty of people that have upstanding professions ie; teachers, coaches ,insurance salesman, that have DUIs and are still able to go to their jobs everyday. WHO CARES

    Like him or hate him? He is a Jets’ hater, a Giants lover, an ass, or a person who is vindictive?
    Who gives a rat’s ass. This was a great monologue, it was perfect.
    His thoughts and conclusions on the crap going on in the NFL made me jump up and cheer.
    I jumped up and cheered in Canada, some 2,942 miles away from New York City. Not for the fact the Jets are hurting, but only for the fact, finally someone said it like it should be said.
    Well done Mr. Francesca. I am now a fan.

  68. noah says: Sep 22, 2010 11:40 PM

  70. SpeedBlue says: Sep 22, 2010 11:49 PM

    Does it really matter whether the reporter is a Jets hater or not? Francesca’s or Florio’s opinion on the Jets has no bearing on this. Look at the facts. If it’s on record the guy was in the car when a fellow player driving drunk was at least partially responsible for the death of a pedestrian, and the guy was at twice the legal limit driving with fellow players in the car over a year later, then he’s a danger to everyone, especially his teammates. The fact that you jokers bring up Francesca’s and Florio’s alleged team bias is ludicrous. It just shows you care more about your football team than innocent people in danger of getting killed. But let’s put aside your moral derangement aside for a moment. Let’s just look at this logically. Let’s say all you care about in life is the Jets football team. You don’t want a mediocre player who drops the ball to get punished for putting a better and more key player like D’Brickashaw Ferguson in danger of losing his life? How does that make sense? You think it’s more important to keep a mediocre receiver in a one game than it is to teach him a lesson about possibly killing a franchise offensive lineman that could play for you the next 8 years? Just from a business sense alone what the Jets are doing is moronic.

  74. krisk55 says: Sep 23, 2010 12:00 AM

    Lets just say that this is a very loud obnoxious radio host who complains all the time about the Jets. Look at the entire NFL. Vick was in Jail for 2 years and got his job back immediately. Randy Moss has been caught smoking marijuana and drove into a cop with his car. Leonard Little killed someone while driving drunk and then a year later got caught with a DWI again. Nothing changes, these players have skills that very few people in the world have. The money owners make is ridiculous and that is the bottom line with these people. If you have talent they are always willing to forgive and forget. This is not a story!!!! Everyone needs to get off their high horse and take a step back. DWI is bad but beating your girlfriend or wife is much worse in my opinion and that is more frequent of an occurrence in the NFL. Seriously, stop the Jet hating and stop writing articles that constantly put the Jets in a negative light.

  75. baznyc says: Sep 23, 2010 12:01 AM

    Come on… the only time Francesa hasn’t bashed the Jets, was when Parcells was the Head Coach (they’re supposedly good friends). It gets so tiresome, all this gossip Journalism. All this lazy reporting… nothing about football, only story after story, about what someone who never played the game thinks.
    Please let fans know about football, not extraneous nonsense.
    It’s no wonder that most fan comments on PFT, are hateful, ignorant, nonsense… it’s a reflection of all the crap you guys publish.

  76. Twiz says: Sep 23, 2010 12:06 AM

    Now wait a second…….did I miss something and this already went to court with Edwards pleading guilty?
    I’m not standing up for Edwards, what he did was stupidity at its finest, but lets remember something here. Until he goes to court, he is presumed innocent.
    Now going by that, the Jets CANNOT do anything, (cept maybe let him sit the game, and don’t play him). Woody Johnson CANNOT do anything. The NFL CANNOT do anything. Now, once (and if) he pleads guilty in court, and is sentenced, I bet you dollars to donuts that the Jets, the NFL and God himself rain down upon Edwards!!!

  77. RugDaniels says: Sep 23, 2010 12:10 AM

    I agree with Francesa’s point here, but as others have pointed out, he does have an anti-Jet agenda. If this was a player coached by Parcells or Bobby Knight instead of Rex Ryan I don’t know if he’d been so quick to vent his spleen.
    I generally enjoy Francesa’s show though. But if I were a Jets or Mets fan, I’d hate him too.

  78. mtrjets says: Sep 23, 2010 12:13 AM

    Anyboby who believes anything Fatcessa says is borderline retarded. He’s a YUUUGGE Giants supporter. If H. Nicks got picked up tonight on a DWI you’d never ever hear this type of outrage. Non story ……….Jets 23 Phags 13

    Francesa is a Giants fan? During super bowl week and around the time the Jets were deep into the playoffs, everyone was addressing Francesa as a Jets fan around then. He didn’t do anything to retract being addressed in that manner

  84. LucySkyDiamonds says: Sep 23, 2010 12:33 AM

    He is right. People act like a DUI is nothing when people get killed everyday because of it.
    Now I think people definitely deserve to be given a 2nd chance, but this is NOT the first time he’s done something bad, Braylon has a whole laundry list of things as you read up there. How do the Jets punish him? By playing him on Sunday instead of benching him? I hope the Dolphins beat them once again with Braylon on the field.
    The Jets thought people hated them before, they just keep making it worse.

  85. obscenery says: Sep 23, 2010 12:43 AM

    Coincidentally I watched “Big Fan” for the first time last night.
    The premise is that a guy gets beat up by a football player who needs to be on the field to help his team win. So he doesn’t press charges… because he’s brain damaged.
    The overall message of the movie is that if a person puts the needs of a football team over the pursuit of justice, that person should be pitied because they are clearly suffering from brain damage.

  86. LeBong James says: Sep 23, 2010 12:48 AM

  89. jets286 says: Sep 23, 2010 1:12 AM

    florio and francesa seem to be forgetting the fact that players like ronnie brown have gotten away with the exact same thing…yes edwards is stupid and he deserved to be punished and HE WILL BE PUNISHED…by the league. It’s not the team’s responsibility to add to the league’s imposed suspension. People are jumping on the jets-hating bandwagon because they hate them already and are just using this incident to attack them. Mike Francesa knows nothing and makes ridiculous claims to grab headlines

  90. patpatriotagain says: Sep 23, 2010 1:18 AM

    broadwayjoe.
    get your facts straight. Steinbrenner was banned from baseball once. his felony charge had nothing to do with baseball and he was later pardoned. With regards to Edwards, receipts show that he was the guy who ran the tab for stallworth the night he killed a man (by the way stallworth isn’t a baby-killer either – he killed a grown man). The point is he put himself in a position to be a murderer just like stallworth. which is far worse than giving illegal donations to richard nixon.
    r-tard

  91. smithopher says: Sep 23, 2010 1:28 AM

    the jets were always going to be faced with the decision between holmes and edwards next season, i think that through training camp holmes really became sanchez’s guy and it’ll be a no brainer next season… holmes will sign a 5 yr contract worth about 40-45mil and edwards will hit the road. i don’t like this punk, i never did, and it was ridiculous what he did on sunday after he scored that td. not the first time he’s done that, either. the jets need to focus on their agenda though, there have been enough distractions. putting him in the game and beating the dolphins is priority number one. let goodell handle the discipline, as the policy dictates. as a jets fan, i think the jets have been running their mouths way too much, while i do believe they are a solid team, they have a lot of pressure to win. i think they put their foot in the mouths early on and need edwards to get through these first four games without holmes. if holmes was playing, i’d almost expect edwards to stay home for a couple weeks.

  92. www_smoothdaddyride_com says: Sep 23, 2010 1:51 AM

    “Edwards got a DUI charge, he’s not a baby killer”
    REALLY? that’s your point? driving drunk can easily make you a multiple murderer depending who else is in your path. He was very lucky that he didn’t kill anyone. Driving drunk should immediately be considered attempted manslaughter as you put everyone on the road at a much greater risk of death through no choice of their own.
    Whether you like the guy or not, most of his points on BE are valid. and Edwards is repeatedly “misbehaving” aka lawbreaking…so itsn ot JUST a dui/dwi, he’s a habitual criminal. assaults, speeding, drunk driving.

  93. CollegeToPros says: Sep 23, 2010 1:54 AM

    a bitter giants fan? they won a super bowl recently unlike the jets who haven’t won it in over 40 years and im a Pats fan. talk about bitter
    He is absolutely right. braylon is exactly the type of PERSON this league does NOT need.
    I cannot believe the stallworth situation wouldn’t even make him flinch. How stupid can 1 person be? Is this possible? I guess it is.
    and shame on the DESPERATE jets for not suspending him. If he played for NE (please no), he would be CUT by now. done. finished. canned.
    braylon is a total idiot and the jets are cowards for not doing something about it.
    They should be trashed in the media for this. It should be the headline for every major sports outlet.

  94. sanclementejedi says: Sep 23, 2010 2:11 AM

    Jets should nut up and suspend him for two games. If your drunk how can you not take a cab in Manhattan? Also the Jets would of drove him home no questions asked and parked his ride in the driveway. That jackass could of killed your mom or your kid driving drunk. I hope he blows out his knee this week.

  95. 55horses says: Sep 23, 2010 2:12 AM

    Was Edwards convicted of anything yet? (A ticket is NOT a conviction.)
    Did Francesa lobby to throw A-Rod off the Yankees for admitting to steroid use? Does he believe Steinbrenner should have been banned from owning a MLB team due to Steinbrenner’s felony conviction?
    Francesa is another fat guy who believes the character and content of this nation is measured by the character and content of professional athletes, RATHER THAN THE CONTENT AND CHARACTER OF PROFESSIONAL SPORT TEAM OWNERS.
    The trouble with Francesa and you, Florio, is you think if Rex Ryan eats a burrito and then farts, that’s news. But if a multi-billionaire sports team owner doesn’t pay taxes for a decade, that’s the hand that feeds you and never a peep will be uttered.
    Let’s face it: when a paid slave of the NFL doesn’t wax poetic or give you enough information to make a wise bet, you’re labeling him as stupid/a liar/should be suspended. But when the owners or networks commit Jihad against taxpayers, you lick their hands and ask for a new van.

  96. fellasheowed says: Sep 23, 2010 2:50 AM

    i don’t think braylon edwards has learned anything related to catching a football.
    the irony here is woody johnson disowned his own daughter(now deceased) for behavior not unlike braylon edwards. except of course for the catching balls thing, then again they both caught their fair share, just not football related….probably….

    Anyway, the Jets and Edwards are scumbags. So is Roger Goodell. Big Ben gets a 6 week suspension and has never even gotten so much as a parking ticket in his entire life. On the other hand, we’ve got this slime getting off the hook with no punishment. Dumb-@$$ jock. Hey, Edwards? Go suck a monkey’s @$$!!
    Anyone that didn’t like what I just said…too bad! What are you going to do about. I’ll take any of you on….anyday of the week. Bring it.

    Frencesa later in this rant goes on about how classy the Steelers were in how they wanted to get rid of Big Jen but there were no takers. But I say the Steelers also show no class (as usual) because they would not do anything about a man who has been accused of rape on multiple occassions (one of which seems to have some merit to it) and puttered around until the NFL took action. If the Steelers owvership was the true “classy” people everyone claims they are they would have cut him instead of begging the NFL to reduce his suspension because he has been a good boy for a couple of weeks.
    another sorry excuse for a sorry franchise

  104. nyjunc says: Sep 23, 2010 6:10 AM

    Can someone please explain to me why the Jets should suspend Edwards but Miami had TWO DUI cases this offseason w/ neither player getting suspended and a 3rd player arrested for beating his pregnant girfriend who wasn’t suspended prior to getting hurt?
    Can Francesa also explain to us how that “class” Giants organization didn’t suspend Kareem McKenzie for a DUI 2 years ago? or how such a class organization could have a guy like Plaxico on their team?
    I’m not defended the idiot Edwards but it’s a little silly to see two Jet haters(Francesa and Florio) going after the Jets when they ignore the same problems w/ other teams.

    Francesca is a fool. Nothing is 100% confirmed yet. Under the CBA the Jets cannot deactivate him or suspend him. It is a big game, a divisional game, and the Jets know they need him without holmes. Why would they punish the whole team?
    Players know theyre not suppose to drink n drive. DWIs happen reguardless the team, owner, organzation. If a player is going to drive drunk then he is going to.
    Either way there would have been criticism. Get over it. Nobody got hurt.

  110. FM1313 says: Sep 23, 2010 6:31 AM

    This guy is a fat slug with an agenda. He HATES the Jets. Hes tight with the giants. Everyone from NY knows that. Even 2 years ago when the Giants offensive lineman was arrested on Thursday for the SAME thing and played Sunday he didnt get on his steel reinforced soap box. The reason the Jets dont bench Edwards is because they dont have to. I love all the Jets haters, gonna make it much sweeter when they roll into your town and beat the every living piss outta your team. GO JETS. KILL THE PHINS!!!

    One time Fransesca best friend was Bill Parcells, they no longer talk. But I never remember hearing Fransesca say that Parcells shouldn’t play LT because Taylor was a Coke Addict. ……………If you ever hear Fatman talk about the PSL situation at the new Meadowlands Stadium( he has said no matter what that stadium is named,to him it is Giant Stadium), The Maras are treated like victims, Woody Johnson as the greedy, evil owner. Too all you football fans who don’t know this but the upper deck is PSL free for Jet season ticket holders, the Maras charged everybody. That information you would never get from Yankee/Giant fan Fransesca…………I admit that Edwards is a clown but you don’t play him because he was a passenger in Stallworth’s car, where in the collective bargaining agreement does it say that, he beat a 130 pound man, no he beat a member of Lebron Jame’s posse, you remeber what Pacman jones posse did in Vegas, 130 pound thugs carry guns and lastly why is Fransesca getting this forum here, could it be because he has a sunday night tv show on an NBC affliate, NBC who else is on NBC

  115. JimmySmith says: Sep 23, 2010 6:56 AM

    Reading the story in the newspaper, Edwards was initially pulled over for overly excessive tainted windows and then the cops smell alcohol.
    Point being, it’s that gangsta attitude that contributed to his downfall. Due process for his rights are in order and after all, I hope he shares a cell with Plexico so they can share stories.

  116. thejetsman says: Sep 23, 2010 6:58 AM

    Wow a match made in heaven Florio and Franccessa. Franfatso bashed the jets after they destroyed the pats I never take anything him or florio says seriously. I’ve made a good deal of money betting againstt his “best bet” pics.
    The jets don’t apear on his show because they are with espn so he gets pissy and flips out on them. A caller asked why there were no jets on the show and he started screaming at the caller instead of explaing why he couldn’t or just getting one. He’s a joke just watch him on YES he wears stethascope style headphones so he doesn’t ruin his greasy slicked back hair. That’s how you know when your a self centered dueche
    I never heard this rant when burress shot himself and the giants kept him till the absolute last second, or when kareem mckenzie did the same thing on a Friday and played that weekend and started and he hasn’t mentioned that the jets have had 10 arrests in 10 years 6 below the average and one below the giants, although the giants have had seven in the past 2 years. But he doesn’t mention that about his precious giants while he compares the jets to them he’s a hypocrite that’s all that matters about him.

  117. grouchomarx1 says: Sep 23, 2010 7:02 AM

    I’ve never met anyone who likes Francesa. There’s only one reason people listen to him, and that’s to hate him. Sure he brings in rating for the station, but let’s face it, he’s as big a moron as Edwards is. People watch a train wreck, rubberneck at accidents too, but that doesn’t mean they like them. Francesa is just vying to be the 2nd biggest narcissist (behind Bryant Gumbel) in the sports world. Me? I’m waiting for Dungy to check in.

  118. Mooch says: Sep 23, 2010 7:12 AM

    If the Giants did the same thing, Mike would be supporting the decision and insulting callers who disagreed with it.
    He has zero integrity.

  119. bwisnasky says: Sep 23, 2010 7:12 AM

    I just seriously wonder if he would be playing if they were playing Buffalo or the Rams or Cleveland or some other team that is struggling right now… I really think it has more to do with the opponent than not wanting to punish him… after all, Miami is leading their division right now… All I know is this has typical NYJ implosion written all over it… the thing that gets me about this article is Fransesca attacks Rex Ryan without attacking Rex Ryan… because Tannenbaum never was like this until he hooked up with Sexy Rexy… How about laying the blame at Rex’s feet too… since he can decide who he is playing on Sunday night, and he’s willing to overlook this. It would be different for me if it was a first time offense, but obviously, he has a history…. this should be a no-brainer. Which is why I guess it’s working the way it is.. because Rex has no brain when it comes to how he is perceived by the public.

  120. DreadedOne says: Sep 23, 2010 7:13 AM

    “Francesa has been anti jet since the time “mr t” wouldn’t go on wfanbefore going on espn radio. Mike doesn’t like Rex Ryan. Because of it he bashes the jets.”
    I dislike Francesa as much as the next guy but this is no worse than Adam Schein hosting a show on Sirius and pumping up the Jets (who pay him for the SNY stuff) and yet never discloses that he’s got a bias for them.
    Nothing Francesa says here isn’t true.

  121. ravenfan820 says: Sep 23, 2010 7:13 AM

    It is beyond me that any Jets fan can come on this site and defend Edwards in this case or say anyone is bashing the Jets!!!!!
    This guy should be in jail!! if it was me or you we would be.
    And before someone brings up Ray Lewis and Donte Stallworth to me, THEY SHOULD BE IN JAIL TO FOR WHAT THEY DID!
    I am tired of professional football players getting a free ride.
    If you are defending this you are part of the problem and I hope someone like Edwards is never near you and your family while you are driving a car or you too may be singing a different tune…..

    I can still hear Francesa’s voice getting all whiny and angry yesterday when a caller suggested his point of view was tainted by the fact the Jets don’t ever come on his show.
    That being said, he’s dead right about this issue. Edwards should be suspended.
    nyjunc hit the nail on the head however, on why he won’t be suspended:

    Can Francesa also explain to us how that “class” Giants organization didn’t suspend Kareem McKenzie for a DUI 2 years ago? or how such a class organization could have a guy like Plaxico on their team?
    I’m not defended the idiot Edwards but it’s a little silly to see two Jet haters(Francesa and Florio) going after the Jets when they ignore the same problems w/ other teams.
    If nobody else is going to play under that handicap, then why should the Jets? Beyond that, where is Mike’s moral indignation when it comes to his buddy Bill Parcell’s organization? Is he doing this to benefit Bill? The guy truly is one of the most self-serving and self-absorbed radio hosts of all time.

    Simply put.. it’s his history. It’s not like this was the first time… it’s not really like he’s even truly been conciliatory.. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance… not a 3rd, 4th, 5th etc… You would think honestly the guy would have learned from the Stallworth incident how dangerous driving impaired is… I don’t think they should suspend him, I think they should kick his rear out of the league… he obviously doesn’t learn lessons in life very well….

  127. j-wil says: Sep 23, 2010 7:40 AM

    Another inaccuracy in Francesa’s rant was stating that the rules don’t apply if you can catch a football. In Edwards case, they seemingly don’t apply when you can’t catch a football either! LOSER…………

    Ladies and Gentlemen:
    For all of you Fins Fans going to the game prepare yourself. With the annual influx of those inebriated, knuckle-dragging, moronic Jest fans—expect the average IQ of the stadium to drop 80 points.
    That means wandering hoards of 6 to 15 Jest fans in a group, leering at you and saying, “Ya wanna fight mutha?”
    Nice group of people. I can’t take my kids to a Jest game because of all the figting.
    Kick da crap outta that team for God’s sake and put the mdia out of their misery listening to those braggers.

    What a BLOWHARD….
    Same guy when asked on the radio had no clue about the Giants and Mckenzie or Ronnie Brown or the other 3 guys on the Miami roster with outstanding issues….
    Bottom line this guy has no idea about DUI charges and players in the NFL until one day he decides to take his head out of his ass and Continue his Anti-jets Brigade…
    All of a Sudden Mr Clueless on these matters is the New Czar….
    Not to mention the fact that his buddy Parcells turned a blind eye to Lawrence Taylor for years…
    THE LEAGUE will take care of it AS ALWAYS…. If you want to set a Standard in the NFL thatDUI = 1 Game suspension then do it…. Amazing he wants it to start NOW though….

    The jets have ALWAYS cared about the Dolphins… envy is another word.

    so sad for the little jet trolls that very soon the Dolphins will pass them up in the head-to-head wins and they will have NOTHING to boast of… well, nothing based in facts.
    Dolphins OWN Wrecks!

    Some people here are nuts… Do a Google search on NFL players with DWI and tell me all the teams that sat these guys…
    Funny how all of a sudden it’s the NY Jets and the issue is 100x bigger…
    I was surprised myself to see all the DUI cases…
    Not to belittle a DWI but, come on.. Set a standard through the league because to me it looks like people want the Jets to go above and beyond what anyone else has done.

    One time Fransesca best friend was Bill Parcells, they no longer talk. But I never remember hearing Fransesca say that Parcells shouldn’t play LT because Taylor was a Coke Addict. ……………If you ever hear Fatman talk about the PSL situation at the new Meadowlands Stadium( he has said no matter what that stadium is named,to him it is Giant Stadium), The Maras are treated like victims, Woody Johnson as the greedy, evil owner. Too all you football fans who don’t know this but the upper deck is PSL free for Jet season ticket holders, the Maras charged everybody. That information you would never get from Yankee/Giant fan Fransesca……….. .I admit that Edwards is a clown but you don’t play him because he was a passenger in Stallworth’s car, where in the collective bargaining agreement does it say that, he beat a 130 pound man, no he beat a member of Lebron Jame’s posse, you remeber what Pacman jones posse did in Vegas, 130 pound thugs carry guns and lastly why is Fransesca getting this forum here, could it be because he has a sunday night tv show on an NBC affliate, NBC who else is on NBC

    I manage to avoid drinking and driving completely and I get smashed 2-3 times a week. I learned from friends mistakes getting DUIs and fortunetly no one got hurt. All in all its just too easy of a choice to make. It’s a shame that Edwards is too dumb too learn from others. Hopefully this will be a chance for him to learn.

  141. pftfanboy says: Sep 23, 2010 8:23 AM

    it is obvious the jets a big draw when it comes to NFL news this season and we all have a good idea why.
    the show was entertaining and they have personality (whether you like it or not).
    but i do believe there is a slight difference between your standard dui and this one of Braylon. they are both sufficiently stupid, but you would think someone that was drinking with a dude the night he killed someone……Killed someone…would get the point.
    add in the beating of that little dude in cleveland and the 120 in the residential, and we have a clear case of idiocy. not because he has made common mistakes, but because he isnt even close to learning from them. the nypost has a few articles on this that make both florio and this francesca fellow look warm and friendly.
    i know the tensions are building for the game this week, but which one of you wouldnt get a wake up call the morning you learned Stallworth killed someone?

  142. thejetsman says: Sep 23, 2010 8:25 AM

    Wow a match made in heaven Florio and Franccessa. Franfatso bashed the jets after they destroyed the pats I never take anything him or florio says seriously. I’ve made a good deal of money betting againstt his “best bet” pics.
    The jets don’t apear on his show because they are with espn so he gets pissy and flips out on them. A caller asked why there were no jets on the show and he started screaming at the caller instead of explaing why he couldn’t or just getting one. He’s a joke just watch him on YES he wears stethascope style headphones so he doesn’t ruin his greasy slicked back hair. That’s how you know when your a self centered dueche
    I never heard this rant when burress shot himself and the giants kept him till the absolute last second, or when kareem mckenzie did the same thing on a Friday and played that weekend and started and he hasn’t mentioned that the jets have had 10 arrests in 10 years 6 below the average and one below the giants, although the giants have had seven in the past 2 years. But he doesn’t mention that about his precious giants while he compares the jets to them he’s a hypocrite that’s all that matters about him.

  147. jcjets says: Sep 23, 2010 8:46 AM

    I like Francessa’s show a lot, and agree he’s anti Jet because the Jets are hooked up with 1050 ESPN NY and send all their players to the Michael Kay show (which is horrible, btw). but my issue with him is he has admitted to having had a few drinks and driving a car before, himself. Once you admit that you can’t sit there and act shocked that an athlete did it. He also said when he was younger he thought it was funny, but now that he’s older he’s learned how serious it is. He said Braylon’s just lucky he didn’t kill anyone, and honestly, he is. But so are you Francessa! You say you drove impaired, so you’re just lucky too.

  148. Joemamma says: Sep 23, 2010 8:48 AM

    Always amazing when the so called reporters make the story about each other. Francessa by the way is an entertainer—-his only concern is his ratings. Just another blow hard like Limbaugh, Beck, Olbermann, Hannity and O’Reily—sanctimonious talking heads who think they have all the answers and are always right.

  150. NamVetJet says: Sep 23, 2010 9:22 AM

    Good point Jetfansince63 about Francessa’s NBC tie-in—-as in all things follow the money, it is not about journalism anymore—it is about how many hits and how many viewers can I get.

    The Steelers suspended Holmes for a game a couple of years back when he was stopped and a joint was found in his car – actually they said they opted not to dress him, but same difference. The union whined a bit, but in the end nothing happened.

    This isn’t about bias or hating a team. He stated FACTS.

    if a DUI = 1 Game suspension then so be it FOR ALL. Offseason or On.
    If Murder = A good attorney and not much more then play on.
    There is no defense for Braylon and I don’t see anyone defending him – I see people questioning how a team with 1 guy with an issue should have to go down and play a team with 4 guys with issues who never missed 1 game.

    I would in no way condone driving while under the influence but people he wsn’t pulled over for drivng badly he was pulled over because his tint was to dark, so obviously he wasn’t sloppy drunk weaving in and out of traffic that being the case he’s still an idiot for not using the car service and putting people lives in jeopardy. But Francesa blows, like he’s never had a cocktail and got behind the wheel.

  157. bono-zoffa says: Sep 23, 2010 10:27 AM

    “So when you hear any of the various talking heads on ESPN (we noticed several of them doing it today) explaining that the Jets had no choice but to let Edwards play, it’s simply not true. If the Jets wanted to send a message to Edwards and the rest of the locker room, they could have told Edwards to stay in New York this weekend.”
    Are you a labor lawyer? No. Have you see the CBA signed between the NFL and the NFLPA. No. Hav the Jets told Edwards to stay home, it would have resulted in many back slaps from jackass media types like yourself saying “good job” but ultimately it would have ended up w/ the NFLPA challenging both the Jets and the NFL due to their breach of the CBA. The challenge would be nothing more than a prolonged distraction in a week that has a big enough of a distraction.
    As for Franscessa, the man’s a nut. As any NY sports radio fan knows, he’s the A1A, #1 Jets hater in the NY media. So when things are (mildly) good, he bashes the little things that are bad. When things are (extremely) bad like this, he goes off the hook. I take nothing he says about the Jets to heart, because he – like the MORON writer of this article – has a continuous ax to grind w/ the Jets organization for reasons only they can understand.

    When Braylon Edwards is convicted in a court of law then he should be suspended. You need to remember he is innocent until proven guilty, even though he looks really guilty. Next is the fact that the Jets can’t discipline him in accordance with the player association contract. So while the Jets may want to discipline him and should they can’t because of that.

  160. BKWrxWgn says: Sep 23, 2010 10:48 AM

    Has anyone ever heard Franscessa ever criticize the NY GIANTS? I’m a NY fan and whenever I do listen to 660, all I ever hear from Mike is negative input on the JETS EVEN IF THEY WON THE GAME! It’s the most BIAS radio personality in NY that’s for sure….. I’d say to let the law judge Braylon before the NFL and the NY Jets should take any further action.
    Anyone else tired of hearing how Rex is running a “undisciplined” team? All I have been now hearing is just that based on the BE incident, the Mexican female sports anchor harassment, and many are saying there’s bound to be more issues to arise with the type of “problematic” players the Jets acquired.
    I’m finding this to be real ironic, since there’s another football team in NY that has players that are showing a lot less discipline IMO. They have been openly criticizing their coach and have openly lost their cool at a game (that’s being broadcast on National TV mind you) by throwing his helmet into the stands (accident or not) and then verbal arguing with those very fans.
    I’m not trying to compare the teams BUT seriously if disciplined team is the topic there should be a better discussion on this.

  161. DenverWally says: Sep 23, 2010 10:48 AM

    I have to say, I sometimes have issues with Florio’s comments but this time he hit the nail on the head. The Jets care about the Dolphins, not how many people this drunken scumbag could have killed behind the wheel with a blood alcohol level of .16.
    I guess he forgot what his drinking buddy Donte Stallworth did two years ago. In one quick DRUNKEN action he created a widow and orphans.
    But it’s Dolphins week, none of that matters.

    I agree with you 150%, BKWrxWgn. NY radio listeners, even NYG fans, know what Mike Francesca is all about…he is trash. I have heard Jets fans try to call him when he’s ranting about how terrible the team is AFTER A JETS WIN, and Mike will cut them off and hang up on them.
    What Edwards did was terrible— yes, he deserves to have bamboo chutes driven under his fingernails while salt and lemon juice are being poured in his eyes. Yes, he deserves to have a curse put on the next 4 generations of his family.
    The NFL will deal with it, and the Jets will deal with it, so put your pitchforks and torches away. Do you realize how idiotic you all sound??
    He won’t be a Jet for much longer, so when the inevitable does happen, you can all rant about it taking the Jets too long to release him. Get your rough drafts ready!
    Does that make you all feel better?

    If you don’t live in the NY/NJ/CT metro area and can’t get WFAN 660, all you need to know is that Francessa is a wind bag, who loves the Giants and Yankees and the sound of his own voice. He never gives anyone else a sliver of respect. Edwards should just be dressed and not put into the game. Yesterday on his show Francessa carried on and on about his DUI being .16 as opposed to .1 or .08 like it makes a difference. He had all these morons call in and talk about what .16 equates to in terms of the # of drinks. It was stupid. Everyone’s tolerance is dif. And multi-millionare athletes prob have more tolerance than a normal joe. Because they drink, high proof liquors at their VIP tables and everywhere they go and get noticed the bar tender has a heavy pour.

    In case you forgot, in your blind Jets homerism, the Giants just won the SB. In fact, I don’t even think the champagne glasses are clean yet. Leave it to a typical Yets fan to try to erase the history they don’t want to remember, and try to draw attention to the bit they masturbate to.
    Important fact #1:
    The Giants have won 3 SB’s since the last time the Jets even sniffed at one.
    Important fact #2:
    The Giants do their talking ON the field, where as the Jets win their championships in May.
    Important fact #3:
    The Jets haven’t been to a SB in 40 years!!!!! Yet every one of you talk as if you’re the Patriots, or the Steelers…or even the Colts!!!
    See you Sunday night morons.

    At first I couldn’t believe there was so much attention over a first DWI. After all, cops will pull you over for anything (license plate light out, decal hanging on rear-view mirror, etc) or even for nothing, if it’s 2am and you fit the profile. I’ve always said that you should be penalized for ACTUAL violations, not the ‘potential violation’ of being over-the-limit. That being said, I didn’t realize Edwards was with Stallworth, beat-up a guy, and drove 120mph down a residential street. To me, driving 120 down a residential street is MUCH worse than being over-the-limit and doing nothing wrong with the car. Yeah, this guy needs to be suspended.

    Am I the only one who had to listen to that “Mike’d Up” song a few times? That is priceless.
    Haven’t lived in NY for a while. That tune might be better than the old Mike and The Mad Dog song.

    As a die-hard Jets fan, i don’t care WHO we have on our team, as long as they win us a damn superbowl! I’m tired of all this character crap the Mangini era concocted. Mike t wants to WIN and is doing everything he can to do so. Should Edwards be punished? Absolutely. But not now. Like what Rex said: lets wait ’till all the facts come out before taking any real action.

    Once the Jets win, and they beat down people, it wont matter in the N.Y. Ryan has made the Jets noteworthy for the first time in years.
