Jammal Brown hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; With all the elite DE's we are going to face, no matter how adequately Strief can perform should he replace Brown, he still isn't Jamal Brown. It's nice to have good backups... but we're talking about losing a potential ProBowler. ...

Has anyone ever heard of cause and effect. The Saints played crappy on Sunday = CAUSE
Because of aforementioned crappy play, Payton made the team practice full bore instead of the walkthrough that was orignally planned. Everyone knows the risk of injury is higher in a full contact practice than in a walkthrough = EFFECT

Jammal Brown is not a potential ProBowler. He is a Pro Bowler and he is probably going to be MULTIPLE PRO BOWLER. The drop to Strief may not be as far as the drop from Brees to Martin but it isn't far off. I for one am praying for a good MRI right now. Literally praying.

Stop acting like a bunch of seagulls dancin around a bread crust.

The saints are not made and broken with Jammal Brown. Our team NEEDS desperately to be more physical. See Ravens Loss, Steelers Loss, Bengals loss, Carolina 1st loss, Redskins Loss. We will be fine.

I hope Payton works these players till they can't WAIT to make someone's nose bleed on the opposing side.

I'd much rather be a sledgehammer than a pillow.

Re: Jammal Brown hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it is defintely a big blow if Brown is lost for any time but being it's only week 1 in preseason it gives Payton enough time to configure a modified game plan. A lot more quick slants and screen plays in case Strief is not adequate in protecting Brees. I suspect we would see more of Bush and Deuce together in the backfield to give Brees safety valve options.

You sure make a lot of sense. You want us to be more physical yet losing Brown is no big deal. Yea... gotcha. It's nothing if we lose our All Pro left tackle who protects our franchise quarterback's blindside.

I was mistaken... I forgot he got elected but didn't play.

I agree that Strief is adequate...he is a solid young player with some upside...he is not nearly as good as Jammal. This is going to hurt. I dont know how much it is going to hurt, but it is bad news nonetheless.

Re: Jammal Brown hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh God! We looked flat in the first preseason game and now our starting left tackle has an undetermined injury. What are we going to do? I guess the season's over, oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Give me a break! This is the NFL. One man does not make a team. Strief played exceptionally well last year and was a huge reason we won a couple of games. If this team can't cope with losing a key player to injury, then they were never Championship matirial in the first place. It's almost like some of you are looking for reasons to doubt.

Re: Jammal Brown hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree. Strief held Simeon Rice in check last year in the Tampa game but he wasn't as effective Sunday night. There is plenty of time for him to pick up his game before the season starts. You don't play this game with a goal of being second string, you play to start and you make the best out of your opportunities if you want to stay in the league. This is Strief's shot I think he'll handle it.
