Anyone else starting Chris Brown week 2?

Postby 2ksports » Wed Sep 12, 2007 1:25 pm

I know Indy stopped Bush and McAllister, but from what I saw, it had more to do with Payton's game plan. Saints kept going through the air. When McAllister did run last week, he did fine.

I have a feeling the Titans are going to run it down Indy's throats between the tackles with Brown and Lendale White and that this game will be low-scoring and close. I'll be starting Brown this week and expect anohter 100 yard game.

Also, Indy allowed over 200 yards in both games vs Tennessee in 2006. I think 70 and no touchdown is the worst Chris Brown can do this game. If he does well, might be able to sell high.

Rushing breakdown expected this Sunday:

Brown: 120 yards, 1td
Young: 40 yards, 1td
White: 70 yards

I'm not sold on Indy's defense at all vs this rushing attack.

Indy shutdown Bush and Duece but you expect Tenn to rush for a combined 230 yards with 2 tds! are u playing madden? I'd expect Brown to go for about 60-70 yards and maybe a score. Not sure about the others.

I just don't believe the Indy D-Line can stop the run, especially vs Tennessee. There are several reasons I think this:

1) Tennessee has a more physical line
2) Vince Young's bootleg means the defense can't key in between the tackles, and since they don't have that much size in the front-7, spreading out means between the tackles are going to be wide open for a gashing Brown or White
3) Last year, Tennessee ran for over 200 yards each game, splitting wins with Indy and keeping the score low and offensive opportunities low for the Colts
4) They plan to neutralize Dwight Freeney by running straight at him, so they can set up the pass with Vince Young. They will wear down freeney so he is no longer a pass rush threat.

Based on their game plan, I bet there are over 40 run plays in this game, and Brown will have around 20 carries again. If they can do it to Jacksonville, you can bet they will do it to a much weaker Indy defense.

All of these are good points, except I do expect Freeney to continue good pass rush because thats what he does virtually every play. The reason teams run at him is because 90% of the time he is going to the outside of the tackle and they will run right inside of him.

Personally, I am starting him this week, mostly because of Jacobs and Caddy's injuries. I think he has a very good chance of producing solid #2 RB numbers this week.

I'm definitely starting him, but that's only because my team sucks due to it being an exansion team.

I have Norwood, Brown, and Ward to chose from in my 3rd flex spot. I think I will go w/ Brown as all my WR took a dump on me last week...ie R Williams,Fitz,Evans,Mark Clayton,Curtis. I think I will stick w/ RB's this week, I have Gore,McGahee,and Portis at the helm.

I like Brown but he seriously split carries with LenDale. They both got exactly 20. Brown's not going to get a ton of touches and I don't think that he's going to average 9.2 yds/carry again. Plus you've got to think that Indy's going to put up a ton of points and VY will be forced to throw a lot in the second half.

I'm still amazed Tennessee destroyed Jacksonville running the football. That's a good rush defense.
