Seahawks receiver Braylon Edwards played with Mark Sanchez in New York during Sanchez’s first two years with the Jets, and Edwards thinks it’s unfair to Sanchez that he’s taking most of the heat for the Jets’ disappointing season.
Edwards wrote on Twitter that Jets fans shouldn’t blame Sanchez. Instead, Edwards said, Jets fans should blame “the idiots calling the shots.”
Don't blame Sanchez. I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will probe it when given a proper chance—

Edwards didn’t name the idiots he’s referring to, but he presumably means Jets coach Rex Ryan, General Manager Mike Tannenbaum, owner Woody Johnson, or some combination of the three. And Edwards is right, in a sense: Those three all certainly deserve blame for the state of the Jets.
But that doesn’t mean Sanchez doesn’t deserve any blame. He can take some blame, too. With the Jets, there’s plenty of blame to go around.
