overrated

Postby steelerfan513 » Mon Sep 26, 2005 2:04 pm

i know he has great stats receiving the ball, and thats good for philadelphia fans, because thats all they have.

but brian westbrook is the most overrated halfback in the nfl.

if hes just gonna catch passes, theyre better off going with an empty backfield every play. you cant win the super bowl with a running back that has more receiving yards than passing. they got lucky with a weaker nfc last year, but now they will have to overcome a maturing vick and a better panthers team. westbrook brings to the team what it already has enough of: receiving.

who agrees?

Not me....


Westbrook presents a very difficult situation for opposing defenses.... He's too good of a receiver to put a linebacker on him and expect to stop him, but if you take a safety out of deep coverage and assign him to Westbrook, then you leave yourself vulnerable in the secondary, which is a HUGE mistake with McNabb and T.O. on the field....

I think Westbrook compliments the Philly game plan nicely....

The only possible downside to the system is the fact that it makes it difficult for Philly to take time off the clock if they are constantly passing, but I think the dump off passes that go to Westbrook have a high enough completion percentage that they are about as effective, in that regard, as a running play....
