Braylon Edwards: Cleveland Wasn't Awesome Enough For My Flash

I know, two Cleveland related stories in a day. To those that hate it when I don't mention the Bengals in a post, just bear with me. I think you'll find it enjoyable enough. But the best part about being a Bengals fan (my mandatory Bengals per post mention) is that, for awhile, Braylon Edwards would play against us. In the legendary cache-phrase inventory of Marvin Lewis, this was a good thing. Because we were quite sure that the former Browns receiver wouldn't, you know, catch the football. Damned if he didn't try though. The receiver who worships Daniel Coats for his remarkable receiving skills, bashed Cleveland this week.

Edwards told the Times: “There’s nothing going on in Cleveland. There’s no real estate. There’s no social life, no social networking. All the people who have something going on leave Cleveland. So Cleveland has nothing, and I came in there with a New York-type of essence. So what? That was the attitude I came in with. Like, this is who I am. They didn’t like the flash.”

Alright, not that I really care about Edwards bashing Cleveland. They are, afterall, Cleveland. And I actually felt bad for them momentarily about the whole God Relocation story (aka LeBron James). But has there ever been a player less deserving to to say "came in there with a New York-type of essence" or that Cleveland "didn't like the flash"?

Still, if you can't find yourself to laugh hysterically while feeling the blood drain away from you head causing you to pass out, then I feel sorry for you.

That said, former Browns center LeCharles Bentley had the response of a lifetime. Since I'm pretty sure that it'll be deleted, I took a screen print.

God, I'm going to miss Edwards. But LeCharles... Bravo.
