The one who fumbled the Oakland game away, dropped a long TD in the Eagles game, and played a subpar game in general after mocking Eagles' DB's during the week? The guy with one TD in four games?
I'm starting to think they paid Brown too much, too early in his career.
As I mentioned: every player can have a bad game.
The difference is that AB had a fumble while TRYING to get more yards. Effort. Whereas, Wallace stood still & watched two defenders jump at a ball in the end-zone. No effort.
As far as the Eagles game: true, AB had an average game... but, it was still the best game if any of the receivers. His dropped TD was off of his fingertips... a difficult catch, and one he should have made... but, he was TRYING to catch it... as opposed to standing still & watching the ball hit the defender in the hands.
Lastly, it's not just TDs. BB looks for AB on third down... and AB converts a ton of those. He is the drive-lengthener.
