    Why is everyone so high on Ronnie Brown? Educate me...

    I have never seen him play, and maybe that is my error, but looking at stats i do not see anything absolutely "remarkable" as everyone has made him sound on here.

    stats: 845 yards rushing 8 TDs 313 receiving yards 1 receiving TD

    those stats aren't bad, but lets not forget thats college! everyone's stats are inflated in college.

    compare that to Benson: 1764 yards rushing 19 TDs 179 receiving yards 1 receiving TD

    now, i don't like Benson's me-first attitude and thus don't think we should get him, but with stats like that how does brown look more attractive than benson? I won't post every college RB stats up here, but i am sure there are droves of players who played better.

    what am i missing? please educate me!

    Brown splits carries with Cadillac. It's an effective one-two punch.

    It's widely believed that Brown is the better of the two. He has the real power, Caddy has the quick moves.

    Attitude isn't going to be a problem for a rook on a Saban team.

    3) Anderson's (3-yard) TD

    oh.... i see, he splits runs, thats why his stats are low.

    ok then. how do we know he is that great though? how do we know he can handle the workload? why do we pick his power over cadillac's quick moves?

    how do we know they will still flourish without each other?

    The guy is a good RB. But again, not worthy of a top 2 pick.

    Thats the thing, people aren't sure if they can handle full loads because they've been splitting carries.

    But Brown has everything you look for in a runningback.

    When Williams went down with an injury half way through the 2002 season, Brown came on and finished the season with 175 carries for 1,008 yards and 13 TD.
    6-1 220...4.4 speed.
    At a television studio in Hollywood on Monday night, Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor was doing the fox trot. He probably was wearing makeup, too.
    About an hour south down Interstate 5, quarterback John Beck was on the verge of lining up his chicken nuggets in a shotgun formation.

    Brown is a complete back. He can block for you, he can catch and of course he can run the ball very well. He will be a good RB in the NFL but i dont think he can carry the whole load for you.

    What do I like about Brown?

    1) He is a complete RB. He can run, block, and catch.

    2) He is a team player. He has split time with Williams very effectively.

    3) He has shown enough in college while not logging the massive number of carries that Benson has -- I do believe that every RB only has a certain number of carries to give football, so why take a guy with 1000 college carries instead of the guy who only has 500 or so?

    4) His size should be ideal for pounding the ball. I don't know if we'll stick with a similar offensive philosophy to what we had with Ricky, but I'd like to do so.




    I've got so many lawyers lined up to see me, you'd think I had tobacco leaking out of my breast implants.
