2) Second, Jimmy Farris actually was running a lot faster than Antonio Brown and I will prove it:
I know this was tongue in cheek, but:

1) The defender you are refering too was the punter, and I assure you, even if he was "5 yards" from him, Antonio Brown knew, just like the rest of us knew, there was no way the punter was going to run him down.

2) Your numbers are impressive, but your forgetting the X-factor in the equation.

Antonio Brown - 40 time (adjusted for kiss celebration) = 4.43 - 0.2(5'10" 173lbs black guy factor) = 4.23 overall speed.

Jimmy Farris - 40 "kiss-free" time = 4.37 + 0.1(6' 200lbs lanky white guy factor) = 4.47 overall speed.

While I appreciate that Jimmy Farris is a relatively fast, lanky white guy(being a somewhat lanky white guy myself), he stills falls short in the speed department when compared to Antonio Brown.

Taylor was in there mainly to block, as was Thrash. You guys are kidding yourselves if you think we run the ball as well as KC. Where are we ranked in rushing offense? The reason the team wants to run the ball is that they feel there is less room for error (turning the ball over) not that they run the ball exceptionally well consistently.
KC is number 4 at 142 yards/rushing per game (4.4 per carry). Skins are number 5 at 131 yards/rushing per game (4.2 per carry).

And what's wrong with wanting to run to not turn the ball over, control the clock, manage the tempo of the game, utilize arguably our best player?

Wow - I didn't see the race card coming. How come that *white* british dude on the ESPN movie broke the 4 minute mile?! And he was as lanky as they come...

Ok, seriously - here is my plan to take some of the heat off of Santana: Put Art Monk in the game with Taylor Jacobs uniform on. As long as he doesn't take his helmet off, no one would know. Oh wait- yes they would -because TJ would actually be making plays and that would give it away. Never mind, my bad.

Besides the 92,000 rabid fans, the only one thing I can think of that could be a wildcard is A. Brown. I can see him take the opening kickoff to the house, and Fedex would go nuts. Don't know if he has finally learned to catch the ball on the run, but I wish Gibbs is planning on incorporating him into some offensive packages as well. He will surely get open. Dallas can't game plan for Brown when they are focussed on shutting down Moss and Portis. All they can do is hope he drops it. As far as we're concerned, Brown is 50-50. So what? So was Rod Gardner, and we used him in our offense over the last 4 years.
Is A Brown gonna get more snaps at receiver and not just special teams?

I beg to differ...we cant just be routine and normal u know parcells will pull out all the stops.... there is no tommorow ..yeah run but be innovative and catch them off guard they will be well prepared for what we normally do...

Holy crap! I guess we'll cut 'Tonio a break this time after reading that! Just this once, though....

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go find some kleenex.
