You were a very good player, on a good team. If you had a good time while you were at Michigan, you can thank your dad and decades of Michigan tradition. If you came out of Michigan a better person, you can thank Lloyd Carr for that.
When and if you have something thoughtful, something important, to say, by all means I encourage you to use your public position to do so.
But lately, you seem to be turning into some weird hybridized version of Chad Johnson Ocho Cinco Johnson, which is not a good thing. Is there something about being a wideout for the Bengals and/or the Jets that robs people of their cognitive abilities?
Braylon: Plaxico Burress, Andre Rison; those guys are not exactly career models. They went to Michigan STATE. You want some career models? Try Tom Harmon, Charles Woodson, Desmond Howard. Or more recently, Jake Long and Chad Henne. Tom Brady may not be a pefect role model, Braylon, but the bad news for you is that Brady is looking real good next to you.
To: Lloyd Carr, Stan Edwards
Uh, do you suppose that both of you might want to have just a word or two with Braylon, maybe about the subjects of player-introductions for next week's playoff game?
