It's funny how when our line plays well, like in 2008 AB's vision was never called into question. Now that are line has struggled in run blocking now it's AB's fault the running game isn't as dominant. AB was and is a great cutback runner with really good vision. When the holes are there he hits them. He doesn't hit the hole as fast as Brown, but his vision and running lane choice are far from poor. When the line struggled AB struggled. Because Brown is more of a one cut and go RB his running style is more conducive to an average run blocking team like we were in 2012.
RBs in general, except for rare instances, are just like QBs, receiving way too much credit for success and too much blame for a poor running game. I'll take a great O-line and a crap back over a good RB and a crappy Oline any day of the week.
.....Wow. Not sure why u would think brown is one of the best backs in the nfl... He has only rushed for 100 yds in one game in his career and got injured when given the chance to step up and prove he is an every down back. In a league where there are now so many proven rbs, saying he is one the best in the nfl is a ridiculous stretch. Maybe u or someone else can enlighten me?
maybe I should've asked that first^ before hating on his top rb comment
