Edwards de-activation not a good idea. Dan Leberfeld
While some holier-than-thou sportswriters want Braylon Edwards de-activated for the Miami game, that is probably a bad idea.
For one, it’s no fair to his teammates, coaches or Jets fans who need a win in Miami. If they lose, they are two games out of first place. This isn’t a T-Ball league. A lot of people are impacted by these NFL games.
But more importantly, perhaps Edwards has a drinking issue.
The earmarks are there – the man clearly parties too much.
I don’t say that in judgement, but out of concern for a fellow human being.
And if he does have a problem, what good would a one game de-activation do?
The man probably needs some counseling.
Thanks goodness nobody was hurt on Tuesday morning, and let’s all hope that the wide receiver gets the help he needs.
And a one game de-activation, doesn’t help him at all.
It might help sell papers, but in the long run, it doesn’t solve anything.
