    1) when I read your headline, my first thought was “Braylon is an idiot”
    2) I wish players focused more on improving their game, instead of social media

      Yeah… JOK needs to keep his mouth shut, no reply and worry about completing a forward pass.

      Regarding #2: I think that criticism is a little contrived. Players have down time when they’re eating lunch, sitting on the toilet, getting ready for bed, sitting in an ice bath, eating dinner, etc. I don’t blame O’Korn at all for tweeting. It wasn’t inappropriate. Could he have simply ignored it? Sure. But this doesn’t mean he’s not concentrating on getting better. It’s unfair to expect a college student-athlete to spend 24 hours/day focusing ONLY on football, when 99% of professionals don’t spend 24 hours/day concentrating ONLY on their careers.

        “Regarding #2: I think that criticism is a little contrived.”

        Interesting theory, and the follow on support is generous to the experience to the athlete. However, within the framework of JE saying these were “his thoughts”, I agree with him. They were my thoughts as well.

        It is a form of discipline. As a father you might tell your son to defend himself always, yet talking back in itself ain’t cool. The old adage that the second punch gets flagged is true. We ask our players not to respond even if the return punch is justified. Show some discipline.

          Well said GK! He’s a QB, and the probable leader for The Game. Set an example of where focus & priority should be

          *absolutely agree he actually has the time, but that wasn’t my point. GKBlue said it better

    Edwards is an idiot and a few other things as well. Since his new gig with B10 Network I think he’s bucking for the Howard Cosell Stupid Mouth Award.

    His sarcastic vitriol is actually an inferred slam at Harbaugh but he’s too stupid to see it; since everyone knows Harbaugh is the 1 who brought JOK to Michigan. We’re all aware that Harbs had only about 3 weex to put a class together and in January ’15 Harbs wasn’t yet 100% sure he’d get Ruddock; maybe he’d taken JOK anyway; doesn’t matter today – water under the bridge.

    Re JOK?

    Is Edwards trying the LaVar Ball schtick?
