WR Braylon Edwards was accused of punching a man outside a Cleveland club early Monday morning. The victim is a friend of LeBron James, and both the victim and James said Edwards hit the man because Edwards is jealous of James. James went so far as to call Edwards "childish." Edwards responded on Twitter saying he admired and respected James. If it all sounds Peyton Place-ish, it's because it is.Is that Peyton Place, "Grace Metalious's scathing indictment of 1940s small town America", or Melrose Place, which was "tacky, campy, and idiotic—compelling despite not being interesting"?
Incidentally, I have Braylon Edwards on my team this year, and he's a big reason why I can't get anything from my wideouts. I had Edwards, Ted Ginn, and Antonio Bryant as my numbers two, three, and four, and they are all failing to produce (though Bryant's lack of production is due to injury). Randy Moss is my top guy, but even he isn't catching a whole lot of TD's, and as a whole, the WR unit is killing me. Last week, with the TD-scoring Bryant back from injury but on the bench, I hit bottom with Ginn and Edwards combining for 3.5 points. I don't quite know what to do now; I dropped Ginn for Johnny Knox, but do I pull the plug on Edwards, now a Jet, too? The Roy Williams experience suggests that I do, but I can't quite bring myself to cut him yet. Suggestions?
