Braylon Edwards: Mark Sanchez hasn't earned the right to criticize yet

There may be a day when Mark Sanchez can get on Jets receiver Braylon Edwards for his drops like the fans in Cleveland once did.  Sanchez hasn’t reached that level, in Edwards’ mind.

“Once a quarterback gets to a certain point, where his mistakes are far
and few between . . . it’s hard to be that [critical] when your mistakes
are at a substantial level,” Edwards said Thursday via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. “That happens with more
experience. That happens with more consistency. Then you get that
respect when it becomes second nature.”

The question was brought up because the Jets receivers dropped six passes against the Packers.  Sanchez said all the right things after the game and took full responsibility the loss.

There will be a day when Sanchez’s mistakes will no longer be at a “substantial level.”  It may come in 2011 or 2012.  Edwards will be playing for his third team by then.

UPDATE: Edwards said Friday through a Jets spokesman that he was taken out of context.  “He was referring to quarterbacks in general, not to Mark Sanchez,” the
spokesperson said. “Those comments were not made specifically toward
Mark, they were made toward just playing the quarterback position.”

  1. This guy has the lowest ratio of ability-to-talkativeness of anyone in the league. To paraphrase, he hasn’t reached a point where he is good enough to warrant the respect to talk about Sanchez warranting respect.

  2. what a jackass…..for a guy who has never done anything significant he sure has an ego. f him. why doesn’t he play better and then he can throw his weight around.

  3. I think everyone on earth knows that Braylon Edwards is both an idiot and worthless as a football player. Having said that, I still think he is overrated…

  4. So in Braylon Edward’s mind, the receiver who continues to make errors at a “substantial level” can criticize the quarterback, but not the other way around. Yeah, in Braylon’s world that makes perfect sense.

  5. jjcruiser – oh yes he’s reached that point. Sanchez is a stiff and needs to be called out as such.

  6. Wow, making excuses for the upcoming loss to the Lions already?
    Why doesn’t he just wear a t-shirt that says “who isn’t getting any passes thrown my way ever again” with an arrow pointing up?

  7. Sanchez did a good job a managing the GB game. If few drops get caught and his receivers weren’t such pussy’s letting GB players rip the ball away then Sanchez’s stats look good. Both int’s weren’t bad passes, the Def just wanted the ball more!

  8. Butter fingers should shut his mouth. He’s lucky Sanchez is throwing to him this year compared to Derek Anderson.

  9. Someone should shove a 5 pound sausage down Braylon Edwards throat and a starving dog up his rectum. What a worthless piece of crap this jerk is!

  10. sanchez isnt there yet but he has potential.
    edwards is a pass dropping loudmouth. he has realized all his potential already. quite a while ago, actually.

  11. Edwards has illustrated since coming into the league that he’s got the hands of a defensive back and the character of a dingle berry.

  12. Braylon is a complete moron. He dropped a season worth of passes in 1 game and he’s gonna trash his QB?

  13. Sanchez and Holmes need to start clicking and it will be alright. Braylon is a knucklehead plain and simple, just dumb thought processes in general.

  14. Typical Braylon. The guy absolutely refuses to take any accountability for the fact that he sucks.
    He’s like Randy Moss Jr except, well, he can’t catch the ball..

  15. Braylon Edwards…expert at sucker-punching midgets and prancing like a limp runway model.
    At catching a football?
    Not so much.

  16. Sadly, people such as Braylon Edwards will never know to what extent their stupidity reaches. Mainly because, people that rich (he was the 3rd overall pick, believe me, I’m a Browns fan, and I’m not insinuating that he’s actually earned any of it) will surround themselves with people that will tell them whatever they want to hear, presumably for the rest of their lives. This means, simply, Braylon Edwards will die an idiot.

  17. Sanchez= high road
    Edwards= gutter
    Par for the course with Braylon. Worst part about it was that the question wasn’t even leading. He just took a pot shot for no reason. What a d***!

  18. Braylon “Hands of Stone” Edwards is so clueless just like every other player from Michigan. Most of his drops are passes between the numbers; at this point I think any rookie in the NFL should call him out.

  19. Mark Sanchez will never be a top NFL QB. Completing 53 percent of his passes in his 2nd year isn’t going to cut it. If he has a stellar 2nd half he might pass for 3,000 yards. He has no right to criticize anyone. If DeMarcus Russell was on the Jets, behind that line he would put up better numbers. Sanchez is a bum

  20. Ahem, isn’t Sanchize the QB? The leader of the offense? Didn’t Braylon get another DUI? Got benched for a quarter? Now he wants respect?
    Braylon you STFU and play! Try to hold on to the ball? Hands of stone wide receiver.
    The ship is starting to take on a little water. Ryan better nip this before a major slide and locker room disaster occurs…
    Maybe if Sanchez had a receiver that could catch the ball, 0 points @ home? Not even a FG?
    Guess who the best team is now, Braylon???
    Give you a hint, they’re playing Cleveland Sunday! Now, let’s go have a GD snack!

  21. Wow, at first I thought the title of this thread was that Braylon Edwards hasn’t earned the right to criticize yet.
    I forgot about all of those All-Pro seasons he’s got under his belt. He’d easily be in the top 10 at his position if your metrics were turd factor, or off the field distractions.
    Start another thread Florio!

  22. Wow, what a team player – not! I hope Rex Ryan rips him a new one, and I hope he doesn’t get a ball thrown to him at all this Sunday. He should stop drinking and driving before he talks about earning respect.

  23. Sanchez at least takes responsibility for his mistakes. He still has every right to call your ass out for dropping 6 balls. It’s bums like you who are screwing up his stats.
    I hate the Jets, but can respect a QB who takes the blame for some bad decisions. He’s only in his 2nd season.
    Everyone wants QBs to be studs in season 1. It hardly happens.

  24. Edwards Sissorhands needs to clean up his own pathetic act before opening his piehole about anybody else, even the ball boys. He’s so bad he couldn’t catch HIV at a gay pride convention.
    Jets are going to meltdown soon with that lockerroom and their blowhard coach. Too many egos, not enough team players.

  25. How come this clown hasn’t been suspended yet for drunk driving all over Manhattan with his idiot teammates? 5-hour energy @#$%&*.

  26. BE is always making excuses. In Cleveland, the Ohio State Buckeye fans wouldn’t accept him because he was a Michigan Wolverine and THAT’S WHY he dropped passes. He actually once said that Derek Anderson threw the ball too hard!

  27. This a**hole makes us in Cleveland more and more happy about trading him away. I’ll take our terrible receivers who don’t embarrass our team and, while they may not be able to run routes and get separation, actually CATCH the ball. What a steaming turd. I don’t know anyone else in the league so is such a huge waste of potential talent.

  28. Edwards hasn’t earned the right to catch Marks balls
    (Insert Beavis & Butthead laugh)
    Barely an starting NFL receiver talking about a QB that is better than half the league already. Ok dummy.
    Even your daddy knows you have the dropsies B…

  29. Edwards has the nerve to talk after all his BS. This guy has one good season in Cleveland, couple of highlights in NY and he think he earn the right to talk. He should be agreeing with Sanchez. Yeah the drop passes killed them. In general Rex didn’t have them ready to play. Ridiculous, added days off to a
    bye week. Keep yaping BE makes Clevelands’ decision to let you go all the more smarter. Rex wake up, stop being a rock star and start being a coach, after the Cleveland game.

  30. Makes me wonder really how inbred and inept you have to be to attend such an accredited university as michigan, watch yourself on film for 10 years drop more than you catch, and still have the arrogance of a bonafide number 1 receiver.
    So glad he’s gone from my pathetic Brownies…I can’t wait til he’s retired in 2 years, hosting some worthless reality tv show on Telemundo due to the fact that all English speaking persons suffer inexplicabale brain aneurysms upon hearing this man utter a word.
