    Stevie Brown working to get better in man coverage

    Ebenezer Samuel ‏@ebenezersamuel
    Stevie Brown told me he noticed flaws in his footwork and backpedal on tape in offseason. He implemented new offseason workout. Focused less on classic lifts, more on balance work. Aim was to get better in man-to-man covg.

    "I did a lot of body control stuff when I was in there lifting. Id be on BOSU balls, medicine balls. I did a lot of one-leg stuff, tried to get my stabilizer muscles up and then try to transfer that to the football field.
    I grew up old school, powerlifting, bench, squat, clean, a few other things like that. So this was a whole new lifting technique. Yeah I still did the standard stuff, but at the same time, I did this stuff as well, just to build up all my muscles."

    Good for him. He perfects that part of his game he may be a pro bowl candidate
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Always Liked Stevie Brown - I agree he needs to get better with MAN Coverage because he won't always be able to play Center Field. I'm even more impressed after reading this because he admits to the flaws and is working to improve on that

    Cant ask anymore of a guy like that, good for you Stevie Brown

    Peace

    Stevie is a lot like Cruz was in early 2011, just a guy trying to prove himself... Yes brown has produced, but he's man enough (haha stupid pun i know) to admit his faults and to work on rectifying them...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    You ain't lying. I saw a pic of him and thought he was a Linebacker not a safety. Dude is jacked.

    What part of that quote is about man coverage? Am I missing something?

    I'm glad he noticed flaws and is working on getting them figured out. Brown sounds like a perfectionist and true lover of the game.

    I really hope our safeties could defend the deep ball. I don't want us to have another CC Brown-ish season

    To get better, he needs to read the article on Richard Sherman in the latest edition of SI. Great article.
