Anyone Listen to Braylon on the Radio?

Couldn't have been more positive about Michigan. Was bordering on homerism. In fact, people were texting in after the show and said how bad of a homer he was being.

Some bullet points, actually portrayed correctly:

-Said the defense is the best in the Big Ten.

-Ranked Michigan #1 in his personal power rankings.

-Speight needs to correct some things, but seems to be confident that he can it done. Would not trade Lewerke for Speight, and said most of the other QBs in the conference are no good.

-Special teams needs some work, but fixable stuff.

-Watched the Cincy game multiple times, it was just a few things that led to the score being close, mostly special teams errors.

Hope everyone had a chance to actually breathe and put down their pitchforks after last week.

If he was the dbag that was being portrayed by a lot of people on here, he wouldn't cave in to those requests.

The problem was that people saw the initial post, didn't listen to it, and just went completely off the freaking wall.

the Cincy game last week. He offered to take a picture with my 9 year old daughter (who was wearing the #1 jersey). He couldn't have been more nice. I'm sure it gets a little old with everyone wanting to meet him, especially in the tailgating lot outside of a M game, but he was super accommodating. My daughter watched 2004 MSU game highlights half the way home.

Good thing Jim Harbaugh never publicly spoke his negative opinion on student athletes and their majors at Michigan. Oh wait...

Braylon is a Michigan fan, publicly a pro-Michigan sportshead, and one of the best receivers to ever wear the maize and blue. Give respect where it is due people.

of that shit was taken out of context and pretty much everything Braylon said last week I agreed except for the #1 thing. And by the way Braylon Edwards might be a douche canoe, but he knows more about football than anyone posting on this blog, so you all look really pathetic bashing him for his football opinions to anoyone who is not a blind homer.

Listened to the show in question when it aired, OP didn't make it all up, but he sure didn't present an accurate overall  picture. If someone voices 25 opinions in a one-hour segment and you cherry pick the 5 negative ones and disregard the others, is that fair or accurate? Nope.

And anyone else that is able to break down multiple positions of a football team, not just the WR position.  The way he spoke about Tarik Black being ahead of DPJ, before the Florida game, was insightful.  And Tarik did have the bigger game.

I didn't listen to last week's appearance on the show, and probably won't plan to listen in the future since he's sharing a mic with Valenti.  When we beat MSU, maybe I'll tune in then.

The OP is Braylon Edwards, and of course the comment about Speight and Lewerke is sarcasm. There isn't a coach, including Dantonio, that would rather have Lewerke over Speight. Speight has shown he can be capable. Lewerke, not so much.

what fucking planet do you live on? Forget the shitshow of fumbles and miscues, just look at the numbers and then consider the talent around them. Lewerke is better and it's not even really close.

Okay, but Stevie Wonder could see everything that Braylon said. 

 

I'd still rather listen to a recording of every fart I've ever blown out my ass than Braylon or Marcus Ray at this point. Or Valenti. Why tf do people listen to Valenti?

We don't throw that stupid argument in your face.  We're not checking your credentials, because you've shown to be an amazing fan.

Don't start trying to check credentials because a person didn't grow up here.  Valenti is qualified to talk about local sports because he went to MSU and moved to the Detroit area.  Plus he has a degree in his field.

Yes, he is a jerk on the radio.  But he is technically a professional in a field where it's hard to stay in one place for over a decade.  And that means you end up working in areas that are not native to you.
