Brown should not be blamed. He's tried to get onto the field.

As for his acquisition, it was kind of a high risk/high reward thing from the beginning. Unfortunately we got the risk part of that deal. If he had gotten healthy, as was surmised at his acquisition, we would have a kick-ass offensive line right now.

But even when he did play, he was VERY mediocre, almost bad.

um, your history is off. JB didn't play like a champ in NO, that's part of why they traded him. he got like a millionity false starts called on him. not saying he was a chump, but it was a bit of a surprise when they let him go.

our mistake was giving him a big contract, or not doing due dilligence i guess. he's still not making tons for a starting tackle, but for a guy that isn't playing... that hurts.

Well if BW stays hurt for three years than this would be a fair statement. Personally i think its ridiculous for anybody to call Brown a no good bum- im sure his hip didnt mean anything personal against the Skins. Now haynesworthless was a no good bum. Like SS said im sure Brown would relish the chance to earn his money. Its a shame really.

Well, it stands to reason. This was a Vinny Cerratto kind of move by Shanahan. You don't trade away a 3rd round pick for an injured player. The trade for Brown was in my opinion worse than the trade Ceratto made for Jason Taylor.

I know you're not trying to mock me... Your username is a joke, but as far as jokes, it comes in second - behind your opinions.

You are not accounting for the fact that both Washington and New Orleans thought that his health might improve. Your current 20/20 hindsight was not available when we got Brown.

What matters is the end result. Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan could have used that 3rd round pick to draft a RT. Brown was/is a great offensive lineman but he is equivalent to an old man who needs a hip replacement. I get tired of reading about this guy's injured hip. I don't blame Shanahan for making the trade but if Brown had health issues at the time Shanahan was talking to the Saints, he should have considered giving the Saints a lower draft pick since it was in exchange for an ailing player. A third rounder was too much to give away.

Agreed. Not that RT is solid by any means - but D is without a doubt a bigger problem than our offense. Personally though I think we will be able to adress both needs. - one in FA and one with our second round pick. Than with the other picks - depth depth depth - along the oline and secondary.
