Michael Wilbon thinks mock drafts are dopey, is certain the Redskins front office is clueless and has some funny thoughts on Braylon Edwards. Apparently Edwards has already purchased a $140,000 Bentley, while spending most of his free time talking himself up as the next great wide receiver. Here's what Wilbon had to say:
"Is it just me, or does this remind you just a little bit of another promising receiver drafted by the Redskins who thought a whole lot of himself, who had a $140,000 car before he had caught a touchdown pass in the NFL? Does the name Michael Westbrook ring a bell? Tell me again how that worked out for the Redskins?" (bugmenot/free registration required)
An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
