Should I drop Reggie Brown-WR/Phi????

Postby Decleater » Wed Sep 19, 2007 8:06 pm

For, Brandon Marshall-WR/Den or Ronald Curry-WR/Oak? Standard 1-pt per 20 yards rush/receive, 6-pts per TD. That Eagles offense is downright "offensive." Doesn't seem like McNabb has a connection with any of his receivers except Avant. Who the heck is that? Gimme something to go on!

I wouldn't drop Reggie right now if I were you. At least hold onto him long enough to get some trade value for him (like one decent start). The whole Eagles passing game is struggling now -- it's not like he was dropped out of the top job or anything. The Eagles will get it going starting this week against Detroit and you'll be kicking yourself for dropping Brown.

On a side note, if Brown has a respectable game, I would try to deal him -- preferrably to some Eagles wacko fan in your league.

Yeah, but I'm looking at the rest of the near schedule and both Marshall and Curry have some real nice matchups. Hell, if McNabb and company can't get it done at home against Washington, when are they? Oh, btw, posted this in the wrong forum....gonna move it. My bad.

Brown is doing pretty bad and I doubt he's ever better than a decent WR3. That being said, I wouldn't drop him unless someone great is sitting on waiver. You can likely get some value if you trade him, I'm sure there's gotta be one person who is still overrating him.

See, that's the problem, there's not one person high on the Eagles around here. This is Packer and Viking country. It's terrible, I know! LOL! So, I'm lookin at Curry and Marshall still out there that are lookin a helluvalot better than he is at this point! Just looking to upgrade my team where I can.

Brown is a WR1 on his team. I wouldn't dump him this early in the season. Bench, yes. Dump, no.

misconception. Brown isn't a one. The eagles don't really think like that. They go with x, y, z with each receiver having a specific role. That's in contrast to some other teams where they have a one, and they put that one in specific situations to get them the ball.

I like reggie, and all signs pointed going into the season of him taking another leap. You gotta have your doubts for a bit (although Lions and Giants can get them on course). Plus, you can't drop someone with that perceived value. He is going to get picked up from the wire if you drop him.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Brandon Marshall shouldn't be on the waiver wire period.

I'd look to add Marshall, but I wouldn't drop Brown to do it. That said, I'm giving him one more chance this week against Detroit (in a league where I don't have much choice but to), and if he stinks it up again his a** is going to be stapled to my bench.
