Default Braylon Edwards vs. Michael Phelps: Who ya got?

Not sure if this belongs here or the NFL thread.

Braylon Edwards vs. Michael Phelps: Who ya got?

Braylon Edwards vs. Michael Phelps: Who ya got?
By MJD
Braylon Edwards is a fantastic wide receiver. A master gambler, he probably is not.

Before the Olympics, as Braylon and Phelps were hanging out somewhere talking about all things Michigan (take that, Miami of Ohio!), they struck up a bet. Braylon wagered that he'd score twice as many touchdowns as Michael Phelps would win gold medals (gracias, FanHouse).

Phelps, as you may have heard, won eight.


The foot injury wasn’t a complete loss. Edwards used the time on his couch to catch up with swimmer Michael Phelps’ chase for history at the Olympics.

Edwards and Phelps have University of Michigan ties and struck up a friendship. Edwards bragged before Beijing that he would more than double Phelps’ gold-medal total with touchdown catches. After Phelps’ record eight golds, Edwards needs to set another franchise record.

I don't know exactly what's on the line, but I hope Braylon's getting odds. He's going to have to be injury-free and dominant to win this one.

Myself, I don't bet against Michael Phelps. That would feel like betting against America.




I voted Phelps

Well atleast it was a wager between two friends and Edwards didn't stick his foot in his mouth ala another ohio WR.

Another WR who needs to concentrate on his job instead of issuing challenges to Olympians. Good luck catching 16 TDs when you're dropping passes all over the place, Braylon.

Braylon was 2nd in the league in drops last season, yet still managed to haul in a couple of TD passes.

That being said, I don't know that he'll get 14 this year, let alone the 16 needed to double the medal count.
