Seems like a lot of Carr's players take time to "mature" to the NFL level. Of course, it depends on what NFL team they are drafted by...

I'm thinking he had fewer dropped passes because Anderson, whatever his other faults might be, has a better delivery than Frye did. Frye's passes varied between wobblers and 90 mph fast balls most of the time. Anderson seems to have a better touch (as does Quinn from what I've seen).

And before the hate-posts come flooding in, that wasn't meant as a Frye-bash. I'm just ruminating on what could be helping Edwards improve his game.

Why do the ABJ and the PD repeatedly publish the exact same story day after day?

"Edwards' seeing results"???

Really?!?!

And will the fans actually see anything positive from these "results"?

Oh wait. Browns' fans are idiots. They are probably screaming "Super Bowl" after that game on Sunday. A game where nobody's defense decided to show up.

Cool....There are more details in this article compared to Tony Grossi's similar article.

Well, Edwards STILL did drop a few in that game.... though what seemed to happen was that after the first few drops, he started to make catches.

I wonder if all the switching between different QB's had anything to do with it.

Edwards was like that in college though. When he was on..... he was on and looked like a superstar. When he had off days, he was dropping everything like it just came out of the oven.

Again.... all I can say is that this team needs to work on the FUNDAMENTALS. Poor tackling.... dropped passes.... passes thrown behind. I wish they would "take a step back" and just work on their fundamental skills. That would probably help this team more than learning fancy plays or anything else Chudzinski can cook up. All that stuff means nothing if you can do the very basic stuff consistently.

Edwards... if he is serious.... needs to take cue from guys like Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning....

Get Quinn..... and after practice..... run the tree. Run it all the time and do it frequently enough on their own time, outside practice, where the two "just know" what the other is going to do and are confident with each other.

Of course.... that's just my thoughts on the team. Consistentcy has just been a huge problem as a whole for them for years. Wish they would address it in a serious manner and not just pay it lip service.

Move back to Pittspuke and dig us some coal moron. With any luck the mine will cave in on you.

You're right. Edwards has yet to show consistency. Hopefully we'll start to see some now that the QB roulette is over, not just from Edwards. If nothing else, maybe we'll see more passes to Jurevicious.

I'm not really surprised that a good number of people are still skeptical of Braylon's resurgence - the usual Cleveland-sports-fan negativity.

I, on the other hand, am very impressed with what I've seen from Braylon this season. There are certain things he'll have to be consistent with in order to prove anything, but other things (like the diving TD catch in the CIN game) speak for themselves. That was a catch he would not have made in the past.

You can tell just by listening to Braylon that he *really*,*truly* wants to be a great WR. I believe that was his "missing piece", and as a result, I have complete & total confidence that he will follow through and become that great WR.. sooner rather than later.
