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.
Don't get me wrong, I like me some Brown, and I don't want to see the team pay Wallace what he wants for many of the reasons stated.
I'm just a tad worried that the money may be getting to AB's head a bit.
