Smoke vs the team that gave up on him.

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this has been brought up. Like Beasley and the Cowboys, John Brown is facing his old team Sunday. Not only that, his role with the Ravens diminished when Jackson became the starter.

 

I have to think Smoke will be extra motivated Sunday.

Marcus Peter's is a ball hawk but is susceptible to double moves and shot plays

 

Lull him to sleep with a bunch of square ins and comebacks then hit him with the double move over the top!

I would guess it’s just another game for him. Baltimore didn’t do him dirty or anything. I’m guessing he was happy to get a half season of great stats to position himself for a good contract this year. Probably be more of a fun game for him vs a revenge kinda game. Good news is since Baltimore blitzes literally half their plays on defense Allen can have a monster game if he can complete anything over the top

Disagree they gave up on him. Definitely not a good fit for him once Lamar became starting QB. Smoke landed in a great spot!! Thank Jesus 🙏

I think the Bills should be more motivated after last year's Week 1 beatdown than Smoke.

I agree with your overall point.

HOWEVER...

It's super weird to me to think that John Brown is somehow not a fit for the Ravens offense, but Hollywood Brown somehow is. They're both fast, shifty dudes that have insane speeds and are killer on drags and go routes. They even have the same last name.

Does not compute.

Well....they did use a 1st round pick to draft Marquise Brown, who has slightly better numbers than John Brown put up last year.

It's probably unclear if they gave up on him, or if he simply felt he'd do better elsewhere where he could run a full route tree.

Great observation!  A great pick up for us!

Lamar was a first time starter trying to make his way, there was no purposeful shift away from John Brown.

I can't buy that he feels nothing. They moved on from him.

Exactly. Then drafted Hollywood to replace him

Anyone who thinks he won’t be extra motivated tomorrow is crazy. Brown is due for at least 2 gash plays on them tomorrow. I figure he goes 6 for 80 with 2 of those play alone going for 40 yards.

Just like in college, the majority of Lamar’s throws are relatively short and between the numbers.  That’s why Tight Ends are such a big part of his passing game. To Baltimore’s credit they designed an offense where he doesn’t have to do much more than what did in college.  
 

Brown’s skill set probably doesn’t match up well in that scheme.  We should be glad for that!

After one season? I don't know.

 

I think he would have more motivation when he plays Arizona next year.

They drafted Hollywood a month after J. Brown signed with the Bills. So who moved on from whom?

Didn't the Ravens already release him though? Or told him he was free to explore free agency? Something along those lines, I may be mistaken.

They already have their John Smoke Brown at a much cheaper price. His name is Marquise Hollywood Brown.

Lamar throws a pretty deep ball

He was a FA, and wanted a multi-year deal. The Ravens couldn’t pay what the Bills offered, so his time with the Ravens clearly helped him get what he wanted.

He signed a one year deal with them. I doubt he’s that bothered. Its not like Cole who played his entire career for the Cowboys.

I wouldn’t necessarily label the Ravens game a “revenge game” for John Brown. He was with the Cardinals longer and was on a prove it one year contract in Baltimore. But if it helps motivate the team like it did in Dallas, I’m all for it. 
 

I’m really hoping for the chance crowd surfing to become a tradition as John Brown lights up his former team.
