Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver

He breast feeds John Madden. (I had to be the obligatory "guy who got the Bill Brasky joke"). It does seem commonplace to overstate a player's size, I'd peg him at around 5'10".

Hey I got the reference and damnit I laughed and I laughed hard! Just remember if you can make just one person laugh you've made a difference

My favorite thing is when they talk about basketball players and they say "he's 6'4"...6'6" with shoes on" How often do basketball players play without shoes on anyway?

And of course nothing beats "He's 6'5"...6'9" with the afro"

Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver

So, I'm in the back of a pickup with Bill Brasky and a live deer! Well, Brasky, he grabs the deer by the antlers, looks at it and says, "I'm Bill Brasky! Say it!" Then he squeezes the deer in such a way that a sound comes out of its mouth - "Billbrasky!" It wasn't exactly it, but it was pretty good for a deer!

How was Kurt Warner bagging groceries and a year later the Super Bowl MVP?

I'm not saying Brown will follow a similar course, but there are plenty of examples of players that are hidden gems and don't fully blossom right away.

It's all about a combination of scheme, opportunity and luck as to whether a non big-name guy ever turns into a quality player. Sounds like Brown had neither the opportunity or luck before he came here. Now he has all three so if he can be a productive player this is where it is going to happen.

I love this time of year. We've spent an entire thread talking about a guy who is likely to be at most the 4th WR. And we all are enjoying it. Welcome back to football season warpathers. Now that they're on the field we can drop the FO arguments and spend valuable work time talking about the 4th and 5th string WRs. Quality!

And maybe Rod Gardner will be one...

Antonio is gonna give our offense great field advantage. Our offense will have shorter field too work with. Don't know if he is good route runner to be a WR. He can break it almost every time he touches the ball.

last year our 5th string safety was starting every game, so it actually can be important

-dante hall (probably the best return man inthe nfl, and a decent if unspectacular receiver)
-adam vinateri - best kicker in the nfl, maybe one of the best ever (throwing TD passes in between winning superbowls)
-warner (as stated above, he seems to have lost it just as fast though)
-delhomme (nfle to top half of nfl starting QBs)

etc etc... theres probably a ton of guy that could have been stars and never got the chance, but now that you have so many safety nets (afl, nfle, cfl) that pay livable salaries its become easier to pursue opportunities and catch some of the guys that never got a fair shot (or needed polishing etc)...

Brown I believe possesses that kind of speed and quickness, not quite in Greens league but very close, the fact that he's showing to have [from what we are hearing very good hands] is a MAJOR plus for our offese, this kid could stretch a defense beyond it's limit's, couple that with the pattened Gibbs comeback routes and we may have found a BIG TIME STEAL!

The most encouraging words coming out of camp as well as the mini camps are Ramseys, he keeps saying he's not used to guys with that kind of speed, as well as the kind of seperation they are creating, I am very encouraged by those statements. Now if we can provide him proper protection we can be very dangerous, but keep in mind Gibbs offense really only runs well when the QB has big time protection, it's not a west coast style 3 steps and dump it it need's a comfortable QB to operate properly, the QB's are asked to hold the ball a little longer and look deep first, this requires a line that will have the QB's trust, but when this happens the offense is a thing of beauty.


Let's see, Moss, Patten, Jacob's, and Brown, all out on a pass pattern together with Portis in the backfield, I would love to see a defense scramble to try and match up with that kind of speed? In fact I would like to see that combo on the relay's at the next olympics!
I had the same thought with all the speed we have. Just send them straight down field as fast as they can run and leave Portis in to block and the dump off pass. If the receivers are covered then they have sent six backs out to cover them leaving the field wide open for a short pass to Portis with an open field.I'm sure we were not the first to think of this though.At least I hope not.

We certainly aren't the first to think of it. Sounds like the Rams a few years back with Holt, Bruce, and Hakim flying down field and having Marshall come out of the backfield. It would be sweet to have that kind of success. I just don't know how well our personell matches up to the example I've given. That offense was just awesome.

MIke Martz is freaking nuts when it comes to play calling, he is aggressive as all hell, and Marshall was WR coming out of the backfield! We got the speed, but not the components!

Realistically, what can we expect from Brown? I mean as receiver. I wonder? I'm starting to get real giddy about him, but I know that is based on hype, kind of like when I first heard about Matt Jones ...

Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver
