Mr.Bryce Brown, I really want to love you bro. I really do. But, my man, you really need to learn how to hold on to the damn ball. Maybe you can take the same classes that Adrian Peterson took? Whatever AP did to fix his fumbling issues, Bryce needs to get on that ASAP. If he doesn’t figure it out quick, Bryce might not see the field anymore. I hope he does figure it because he is fun as hell to watch. When he turns the corner on the outside, can you say “later”? His speed and power is the perfect complement to LeSean McCoy‘s vision and shiftiness.
On Saturday night we saw the good and the bad of Bryce for the Philadelphia Eagles. The good? His 92 rushing yards on 11 carries and being the main player in the game-winning 99 yard-drive with Nick Foles at the helm. There was also that beautiful spin move he had on that drive. He had another scamper for a TD earlier on, too. The bad? The fumble on the other drive in which he was dominating in along with his pass blocking. He needs a tad bit of work on that.
Bryce, the former high school player of the year and the former top ranked running back by Rivals.com in 2008, has a chance to be special. He has all the tools he just needs some guidance. To be honest, this might be the most talented backfield the Eagles have ever had with Bryce, Chris Polk and “Shady”. Seriously. Now if only Brown, who holds the Eagle rookie record with a 178 rushing yards, can get his issues figured out.
