You guys think Riggins played with injuries, how about a skinny little guy like Walter Payton? or Jim Brown? or Leroy Kelly?
I think there's great danger in overanalyzing a particular situation. Several weeks ago, people were ready to write off Ahman Green, now, he's awesome. Javon Walker- where did he come from? If Mewelde does bad this week- does that mean you should trade him? Or if Droughns drops the rock a couple more times this Sunday- do you drop him?
I know this- less than two weeks ago people were worried Brown's shoulder stinger was going to affect his play. Well it didn't- 14 for 55 I think was his production. It affected his QB's play and Defense play apparently because they fell behind and started throwing.
Don't overanalyze folks- ... now, does anyone know what the wind conditions will be like in Chicago this Sunday, should I play Edinger? Will it snow in Buffalo, because that will affect Arizona's Defense- use to playing in the desert, you see.
I would not be overly confident in Brown right now... On top of the fact that turf toe is one of those lingering injuries that just WILL NOT go away without taking some time off (kinda like a nagging groin injury - see Eric Moulds 2003), it seems like Steve "injured" McNair is beyond that point in his career where he will play with his typical assload of injuries... And I don't think Volek really scares defenses enough to keep them honest... Especially with Mason having a so-so year, Bennett with a nasty case of the butter fingers, and Calico out for the season... Unfortunately, Tennessee is not in a position to be able to properly rest Brown, and as such, I do not see his sore toe improving much at all... Until McNair can get back on the field and they can afford to sit Brown for some much needed rest, I wouldn't expect much out of him over about 70-80 ypg... It would not at all be a bad idea, if you have the roster space, to grab Antowain Smith and wait for this situation to develop... ESPECIALLY once Tennessee is mathematically eliminated, which should be around fantasy playoff time...
