Okay, it's only a report technically, since the public feelings expressed by the Jets have all been pretty positive, but apparently Braylon Edwards' teammates are pretty cheesed at him.

Which is mildly understandable, obviously.

The New York Post reports that one teammate called Edwards "selfish." The paper also offered up some pretty specific quotes from an unnamed player.

"This is the last thing we need right now," one Jets player told The Post. "We have a big game against Miami this week, don't we? We should be concentrating on Miami Dolphins, not answering questions about [Edwards' arrest]. This is an unnecessary distraction."

"He's got to know better than this," the player said. "There's a program in place for this. Every player knows about it so there's no excuse for something like this to happen."

The Jets are absolutely correct to be angry at Edwards for this mess. Drunk driving isn't acceptable in the first place, but hopping into a car in a city that features more taxicabs than the population of most other urban areas and cruising around with a blood-alcohol level that's twice the legal limit when your team offers a taxi service to its players is just way beyond irresponsible.

Can you guys imagine the amount of angry people out there if he has a bad game now on Sunday? HAHA, Woodhead? The kid has heart, but is no Chrebet.

Playing Danny Woodhead would be great, but he is now on the Patriots.

Jets ownsership set up a service where off duty officers will come get the players at anytime, take them home and get thier car back to them with no cost to the players. Thats how stupid Braylon Edwards is.

I thought it would take a little longer than 2 weeks, but you get what you "pay' for. The Jets knew this going in. Looks like Mangini was right about one thing. Get Danny Woodhead, the Chrebet reincarnatuon, back out there. He plays balls out every play and deserves Edwards' spot.

With all of the money paid to these athletes, why not hire a full time driver to drive your around.  It doesn't make sense.Yell
