    Does Andre Brown get the start on Thursday?

    The guy was very effective against a nasty run defense. He runs with conviction.

    He deserves a chance, and I think the coaching staff liked what they saw from him today. I know I did...

    That will depend on Ahmad's injury, but I'd put him in before Wilson to see if he's a hot and cold player. Not a slam on Wilson.

    Same. Maybe Brown gets reps during the week as Bradshaw's backup. He's been around longer than Wilson, so he probably has a firmer grasp on the offense. Wilson, I think, has a more simplified role with the team right now in certain packages and/or plays. Brown getting hot early on probably had a lot to do with why KG didn't dial up plays for Wilson perhaps.

    Ride the hot hand with Brown. Plus he is a bit more reliable. Can't have a runningback with fumble problems in the game much when we're trailing and having turnover problems as it is. At least that's my view on it.

    If Bradshaw is out, Brown will def start. And I think he earned his spot as the number two back. He will see carries now. This is how you earn TC's trust as a RB. AB goes down and Brown took advantage of the opportunity.

    Brown earned his blue jersey today, he also earned more playing time in the next game. "I gotta ring...."

    That was all it was, he was hot and TC stayed with him.
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
