Wow What's up with Braylon Edwards and Derek Anderson?

I guess that was a waste of my #2 and #3 pick. What a waste.

Pretty crappy weather out there most of the game, and Pittsburgh can play a little D.

I can see Braylon in the 2nd round....but Derek Anderson in the 3rd? I don't like that pick at all.

He was going in the 5th round in most of my drafts and I thought that was too early. Not a real big fan of using early picks to lock up a QB/WR tandem.

I think if you do a Big Ben/Holmes or a B Marshall/Cutler type tandem you at least have your early round studs to bail you out when your combo fails to deliver.

It is tough to break away from that allure sometimes. I often find myself drafting a back-up QB that is the QB of one of my WR's. That's a little different situation though - as you really are just hoping that on the few occasions you hope to use your back-up he connects with your WR.

Braylon has been dropping passes as well. He led the league last year in drops IIRC...the Browns offense in general should pick things up.

A) It's early
B) They've played two tough defenses (don't look now, but #3 is coming up next week)
C) There's already a thread about this here.
