A couple notes out of the locker room. As Eric reported, Browner spoke about his return. He certainly looked like he’s been working out during his suspension. He sounded very eager to be back in action. I wonder if that will make him vulnerable to biting on first moves, or being hyper-physical and getting flagged. But when you consider the challenge posed by RGIII this week, particularly with the read-option, it’s comforting to remember some of the edge plays Browner made against Cam Newton in the Panthers’ game. One way to defend that play is if you have a rare athlete out there who can tackle either guy whether the quarterback keeps or gives. Browner just took the ball from Newton once on one of the game’s biggest plays.
Some funny stuff from Mike Robinson, after having said that Marshawn Lynch sometimes baby-sits his children. Don’t believe it’s full-time nanny status, more on the lines of “if I have to go down the street for a while,” Robinson said. Now, every time his kids see somebody with dreads, Robinson said, the kids start yelling “Marshawn, Marshawn.” It was suggested that it might be the plot-line for a sit-com (tough guy halfback shows sensitive side as child-care fill-in for his fullback). I offer the title: “Nanny McBeast”
As would be expected, tackle Breno Giacomini expressed pride in the performance of the stellar student-athletes representing his alma mater, Louisville, after their rout of Florida in the Sugar Bowl Wednesday night.
