Rex Says He Has Faith in Braylon

Despite a bad drop in the end zone Saturday,Rex Ryan asserted his confidence in Braylon Edwards to the press.

"Braylon, one of these days, is going to have an explosion where he has a three-touchdown game," Ryan said. "I think that's coming right around the corner."

Asked about Edwards' propensity to make the tough catch but drop the easier ones, Ryan said: "The hard thing is to get your guy beat, the run route. Now do the easy thing, make the layup. I don't know if it's a mental thing right now, but we've got to get it right.

"I'm expecting him to have a huge game. I really think he's going to have one of those bust-out games. I hope it's sooner than later."

For what it's worth, Braylon seems to love being a Jet. I imagine he wants to step up in a big way this month, particularly with free agency looming. Not giving him an extension after the trade may pay dividends.
