Braylon Edwards Crys Like Carson Palmer, Goes T.O. on His Coordinator

In the aftermath of last season's playoff game Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer bemoaned the fact that the Steelers went on to win the Super Bowl. He felt as though his team was better and should have been the team to move on in the playoffs. This season we have Braylon Edwards who, in the aftermath of an outstanding individual performance but a Cleveland loss, is stomping his feet and displaying his inner child.

In this is a portion of an item, written by Steve Doerschuk, from the Canton Repository Mr. Edwards infers that he has issues with the offensive play calling during the game:

"OFFENSE CAN’T FINISH

The Browns squandered a 57-yard interception return by Daven Holly and a 92-yard kickoff return by Joshua Cribbs by going 2-of-3 on field goals and producing no TDs on offense.

They gained 302 yards, beating their previous season high of 301 at Cincinnati. Why couldn’t they finish series?

'I’m not the offensive coordinator,' Edwards said. 'Go talk to him. I just play receiver.'

Jeff Davidson, 2-2 since replacing Mo Carthon as the play caller, was not available.

The Browns blew some chances in the first half and led, 10-0, at halftime.

With just over three minutes left in the game, they had a 20-17 lead with the ball near midfield. This wasn’t the Dec. 24 disaster.

'We’re not the same Cleveland Browns,' linebacker Andra Davis said. 'We know that. They know that.

'It’s a rivalry again.'

Perhaps. But there was still something numbing about a 12th loss in the last 13 Pittsburgh games.

The Steelers still aren’t going anywhere, at 4-6. The Browns are 3-7, leaving Kellen Winslow Jr. to reach a little ... or a lot.

“We can’t lose again,” he said. “We’ve gotta win six straight and be 9-7
.' ”

And comments atributed to Mr. Edwards in an article by Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer indicate that Mr. Edwards doesn't think much of the Steelers abilities.

" 'They're not a good team," Edwards said. 'I mean, what does it say? They were 3-6 and we were 3-6. To hell with the Steelers. They're not doing anything right now. They still have a losing record just like us.'

Edwards admitted he was as down after this loss as any other.

'It's hard,' he said. 'I've never really been hurt after a loss. And this hurts
.' "
