Davis and Brown Are Starting to Remind Me of...

Yeah, I thought the rap on Brown was he wasn't fast.  Looked pretty fast to me...


He isn’t. He isn’t slow, but he has pretty average WR speed. The CB was outrunning him from behind, he just ran out of room to catch up.

 

He can still be an excellent WR without being fast. Quickness is more important. Plenty of fast WRs suck...

He’s plenty fast, but really it’s his acceleration that is surprising. Legit 4.4 speed with the ability to immediately create separation through his burst. That’s how he initially pulled away from the two defenders.

Man you're right. I remember debating with people back in the day who had the best receivers in the league. Mid 2000s had alot of great duos...

 

Wayne & Harrison...Bruce & Holt...Bolden & Fitzgerald...Chad Johnson and Houshmanzadeh (Spell check)...Steve Smith & Muhsin Muhammad...Donald Driver & Greg Jennings...I think the league definitely had better Wideouts across the board back then.

I'm getting a Steve Smith vibe in regards to AJBrown's attitude.  He's going to replace Delanie as the emotional leader of the offense.

Yep, his burst will help cover up a lot for questions about his speed.

 

Not to compare him with Jerry Rice just yet, but that was the same there. Rice wasn’t really very fast, but his quickness and burst were hard to match up with.

I noticed in the Browns game his ability to accelerate instantly. Watch him right after the catch out his head down and get to top speed immediately. 

 

Watch the TD. He does the same thing.

I think Brown has some Henry to him. You watch him run and he looks slow as fuck but all the while he's picking up huge chunks of yards and defenders aren't exactly running them down. Deion Jones is a LB but he ran a 4.38 at his pro day and Brown was able to evade him. Big dudes just don't look fast but it's hard to argue he isn't electric.

After he caught that first pass and planted his foot, changed direction and took off was a Holy Shit moment. I don't think Henry can cut like that.
