Fred Taylor has seen some average teams, but none as bad as the ones brown has been on.

I like brown but can they run this gimmick offense every week? Or will it dry up quickly like when Vick and the Falcons ran the option a few years ago?

There was like a total of 8 gimmick plays the entire game. It's not like they were lining up all sorts of wierd formations for every play. It just so happens that most of the gimmick plays were in the redzone leading to big scores so those are the highlights you are seeing. However, most of their big drives were set up by straight up drop back passes (See Pennington's stats) or straight handoffs to Ricky and Ronnie.

The gimmick offense certainly helped, but anyone thinking the reason they won was because of gimmicks is sadly mistaken. The scored was 38-13. No gimmick win. Miami just straight pounded them.

The OL was dominating the DL, the WRs were getting open. Joey Porter had 3 sacks alone, much less the rest of the pass rush by the DL. We forced turnovers, bad throws, were tearing thru their OL with blitzes and were stuffing their RBs consistently.

Miami dominated them in every facet of that game, the gimmicks were just the added flair.

Yah I've known he was legit since he was at Auburn when he made it into the top 5 of the draft, in a RBBC system in college...

Actually I was referring to his third season, hence the "WHEN THEY DID GIVE HIM THE WORKLOAD AND OPPORTUNITIES." I was clearly talking about his third season when he landed on IR and if you couldn't understand that, well sorry, I guess your teachers didn't focus on reading comprehension very much.

I think you need to get off your high horse and stop pretending like because you are a fan of Ronnie Brown whatever you think is true. He is best when gets 18 carries a game and a few catches, and you say this too, well that is exactly why you saying he isn't getting opportunities or the workload to succeed is ridiculous, that makes absolutely no sense and those completely contradict each other. I think you realize this now based on your last post and pretty much agreed with my points without admiting to it by trying to make me look like an idiot, but unfortunately, you just can't read all that well.

Ronnie Brown, like Fred Taylor who has been brought into the discussion is clearly most effective in a 2 back system where his touches are limited and so is his workload. Otherwise he will run the same course as Fred Taylor and never statistically live up to his potential until he is used properly in a two back system with limited touches.

Maybe you should read your own posts before you start trying to say I don't know how to read.

But nice try with the effort to spin it like you were talking about his 3rd season even tho you clearly said his 2nd.

The problem isn't my reading comprehension. It's plain and simple that you can't even count to 3.

Well he was the #2 overall pick and was tearing up the league before he went down with injury last year, so yea.

Thanks, but you are wrong. Its called context. You are clearly looking outside of it, and now are stuck on this and can't even make an argument. Good luck.
