CLIP REEL:
TRENT EDWARDS



"In HS, some people called me Mox and I had a friend named Tweeter. Ignore those parallels."

[First experience with 'Clip Reel?' You can go here for more information.]

Surprising QB line from Sunday: 20-25 for 239 yards and 1 TD (zero INTs) against Jacksonville, a playoff team last year. Who rang it up? Trent Edwards of the Buffalo Bills. For the season, he has a QB rating of 107.7; the Bills' next two games are Raiders and Rams, so they may start 4-0. Not a ton of chatter on the former Stanford QB, so we thought a Clip Reel might be fitting.

His NFL.Com page has a fairly comprehensive video hub. Here's a few videos from that 20-16 win over Jacksonville last Sunday. Trent's Pro Football Reference page (sponsored by 'The Football Card Blog') His Wikipedia. Check out this old USA Today article about Edwards' class coming out of HS. Vince Young! Tyler Palko! Ha. By the time he reached the NFL Draft, people were saying he was the third-best QB available. A lot of that is because he went to Stanford, and Bill Walsh was apparently talking him up. Here's a 4 TD day he had against the Dolphins. Here's his NFL Draft breakdown tape from the NFL Network, including former head coach Steve Mariucci's thoughts on him. Nice mix, linking his upward progress to 'the dream of a city.' (Side note: speaking of dreams of Buffalo…) Odd comedy skit featuring "Peyton Manning" and "Trent Edwards." A very thorough breakdown of Trent's arm strength by some of CBS' football analysts. He does an interview with Donruss trading cards. Another good mix of Edwards highlights. 'Ode to Trent Edwards.' Another good mix, set to alternative rock. Good Canadian Press recap of his first two games. Are the Bills 'growing up?' Perhaps. Is Trent the real deal? We'll learn, apparently. Good column in The Buffalo News about Edwards' leadership.
