There has to be a way to split the teams so that current players are joined with current teamates.
I agree that they should try to put players on the same team, not only will it help what ever nfle team they are on, but it will also help whatever nfl team they are on by building commarodery(SP). Also make it easyer for fans to know what team they are most interested in.

Better yet, they need to fit him with a bigger scrotum and some bulkier balls, because when fielding punts he acts like a squirrel caught in the middle of the street who can't decide which way to run. He's so jittery and fearful of contact, often downright intimidated.

All I think he needs is to build some confidence. The return game is pretty much two things, if you have them both, you can be a stud:
1) Blazing speed with some moves
2) The balls to run full speed at the oncoming coverage team, and confidence in yourself to find a small crease and hit it with authority.

Basically you just run straight towards oncoming traffic. Right now he's way too scared to do it right. But if he can build confidence in NFL Europe, that's all I think he needs to be great.

I think he just needs some fundamentals on the punts. Parcells says there are two reasons punt returners fumble: They are either drifting or reaching. He needs to learn how to run to the spot and set up rather than floating lazily under it.

Re: Antonio Brown sent to NFL Europe

Playing in Amsterdam will give a whole new meaning to the phrase "Antonio Brown has blazin' speed"...or "His goal of playing professional football was more than just a pipe dream"

I didn't even Jonathan Combs was still on the roster, by the way.

Re: Antonio Brown sent to NFL Europe

I know it is easy to pick on Brown but....

If he doesn't run that kick back people would be calling for Gibbs to retire.

Why is Jerry Jones wearing the same outfit as the coaches? Was he planning on working with the backup quarterbacks or something? Have some dignity and lose the coulats. Be more like this guy:

This is true, that was one of the instances where he returned the ball with a lot of confidence.

I really and truly believe it's a mental block. Everyone knows how to run under a punt, that's not hard to do physically speaking. It's all in your head, you have to be willing to ignore the oncoming freight trains that are looking to level you. You have to focus. If you're scared and intimidated, you're going to have trouble and that's what appears to be his problem to me. Especially on punts, he's just indecisive and afraid to run forward, so we get a lot of the dancing around.

That's a great line, and it sums up his weakness completely.

Re: Antonio Brown sent to NFL Europe

brown seems to be better suited to return kickoffs.i think the reason you saw so much uncertainity out of him on punt returns that he was getting hang on to the ball drilled into his head,that he wasnt able to just react and try to make a play

Re: Antonio Brown sent to NFL Europe

Well I hope he learns something while he's there. I was upset when he fumbled in that game early in the season. I was so happy that they cut him, but when they brought him back I questioned the decision. He just didn't seem to have his head in the game. I was glad he had a few highlights, but I think they should stick with Betts.

Re: Antonio Brown sent to NFL Europe

Antonio Brown needs this NFLE experience and whatever he can get in the way of coaching over there. At the moment, Antonio Brown is today's version of Cliff Russell - - he can run faster than just about anyone in the league AND he can't catch a cold.

Russell hung on for 3 years or so because he was so damned fast that coaches could not believe that they couldn't teach him something simple like catching a football. After all, you can teach a 7-year old how to do that, no? But Russell never learned and now he's off to some other career.

Antonio Brown needs to improve about as much as Cliff Russell needed to improve; Brown's hands are substandard for an Ivy League wide receiver. But he can run - very, very fast. And so he has an opportunity in NFLE this spring and will get a lot of tutelage in minicamp and traiing camp and ...

The bottom line is simple: Can he be taught how to catch a football reliably? Cliff Russell couldn't.

Its been said that speed will get you on the feild but it wont keep you there if you cant catch and brown is proof of that. if he cares about his nfl career than he will work hard on his hands this year
