John Brown has disappeared

Gee whiz he has one tough game and now we are cutting him!

 

He was a drop away from winning the game for us. It's a fine line


In his last 3 games he has about 90 yards total and less the 10 catches. How is that not getting taken out of games?

What has disappeared is the deep in that Allen and Brown connected on so often earlier in the season. I don't know if teams have taken that away or Daboll has not called it as often.  Brown was wide open on that deep ball. If Allen leads him to the pylon its a TD but Allen through it up the seam.

 

Wait I thought Allen had not completed any deep throws earlier in the season.  Now I’m so confused

Why do people think “WR1” equals “HoF type WR”? 
 

Brown is one of the top 32 WR in the league. He’s a WR 1.
 

Is he elite? No, but all the guys people list as elite are guys who will garner serious HoF consideration.

It was sarcasm hence the “...”

Against Dallas, he threw two key blocks (one on a Beas catch, one on Allen’s TD) and threw a TD pass.  You seem to have a very narrow definition

I have always thought Brown was more of a role player. He has speed, solid hands and run ok routes. We need a #1 WR very badly, it would open things up for so many players if we did. I don’t feel like we have 1 player on this offense that demands a double team. Brown is bracketed sometimes but usually is single covered.

So he can’t catch balls and do that also

No one said that.  But he hasn’t disappeared if one sees him making plays

Except that the deep play was there, several times, at least three where the Ravens secondary was cleanly beat deep. If the QB makes those throws, this game might of got out of hand for the Ravens.

 

We’re not very good if we have to “warm up” first. If the shot is there, you take it.

Play to your QB’s strengths.

He’s our #1 WR, it’s great he’s still working but teams are obviously having success limiting his opportunities to make catches.

That’s what happens when you only have one WR who is a credible threat all over the field

Because we demand perfection every single game!

John Brown is a WR1.  He didn't make the play on 4th down at the end, like many of his brethren today on offense who failed to make plays when they were there to be had.  The McKittrick TD drop was the worst, with the Knox first down drop second.  We had to settle for FG's from both plays, which cost us the game.  Brown failing to catch the ball was just the cherry on the cake.  The Baltimore defender didn't touch the ball.  Brown just didn't make the play.

What are you talking about. Peters clearly got a hand on the ball before it got there.

We needed

- a receiver that is over 5"9

- an OL that can give our QB a time to make a throw

- receivers that don't drop balls 

- a day when the wind is not gusting to 30 mph and wreaking havoc on all deep balls

The missed deep ball early in the game was a miscommunication. Brown started to run a post and Allen threw a fly. It was probably on Allen.

The replay I saw showed he missed the ball, and it hit SmokeY's left hand.

We’re gonna hear it non stop. We need OBJ, AJ, Julio.. We need a name darn it!!!! 
We get that true #1 Allen will all of a sudden be unstoppable and see the whole field and be accurate. A true #1 would of gotten 3-4 targets today and made all the difference

I would like a big physical, hands type WR that makes those 50/50 throws 70/30 from the draft. Keep Brown and Beas.

Can a rule be instituted where new threads are prohibited until several hours after a game?

because he is not a No1 WR. That should be the No1 priority for this team. A legit top WR with Brown on other side and Beasley in the slot 

He’s 17th in the league this year in yards. 
that makes him a WR1.


He’s not elite if that’s what you mean. 

that being said, if we can just pick up a BETTER FASTER TALLER WR1 from the WR store, I’d happily make Smoke a WR2.

a No1 WR is a Micheal Thomas, a Julio Jones. That WR you do not dare going 1v1 on. 
 

So get me one of those

Cleveland gave up quite a bit thinking the same thing. Atlanta is unstoppable with Julio out there. 
Crazy how Seattle and KC and Bal and SF and some of these teams get away with not having that guy.
