Overall, it was a pretty good opener for the players we spun positively this year, but if I had to pick one take-back call, I think I’d go Reggie Brown. Now, we did lower him fairly significantly a couple of weeks ago, but I’m still very frustrated by Brown and wish I moved him down a little lower into the mid-20s. We did stress how this could be a tough matchup for him playing against man coverage, but Brown needs to step up right now and show he can beat man coverage because if he doesn’t he will see it more and more.
In addition, the vibes aren’t exactly great on offense with Philly, especially if you saw Donovan McNabb limping out of the stadium last night like Fred G. Sanford. Brown’s going to be okay if McNabb is, but I’m not feeling all that great right now on Brown.
And yes, I am fully aware that Deion Branch didn’t catch a pass, although he had a couple thrown to him in the red zone. Keep in mind that reliable receivers are hard to come by. It was a bad game, but Branch is very talented, he’s the clear #1 and in the best spot in the offense at flanker, the offense is strong and proven, and the quarterback is good. These are all very good things.
