NJ.com – I was going to go elsewhere on offense until I read comments Friday morning from Lions S C.C. Brown. Yes, that C.C. Brown, who was asked about Giants QB Eli Manning during his Thursday session with Detroit-area reporters. “You never know what you’re going to get with that guy,” Brown said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “You never know if he’s going to come in and make bad decisions; you don’t know if he’s just going to have one of them Peyton Manning games where he lights you up.” Now, first things first: did Brown say anything right there any of us haven’t said before? Absolutely not. But – and here’s the real key – should Brown be yapping at all after the season he had as a Giant last year? Absolutely not. Last season, Brown was much more consistent than Manning. And by that, I mean he was consistently bad. So bad my man Ed Valentine over at Big Blue View dubbed him “Bad Bad C.C. Brown” (which barely edged out another solid nickname, “Can’t Cover Brown,” in my mind).
Haha! This is exactly how I feel when anonymous 45 year old dudes with email addresses like “BringOilForMyDick@aol.com” call me a loser on the comment boards. Like yeah I may be working at home blogging. But then again you’re sitting at home reading it on an AOL account. So let’s not throw stones. Pretty sure that’s kind of like what Eli is feeling when quite possibly the worst safety to ever put on a Giants jersey starts talking shit over in Detroit. I mean if you think about it the Lions are pretty much the NFL equivalent of an AOL account: good in the 1950s but surpassed by literally everyone around them in the industry since then. Although in CC’s defense he probably just blurted out whatever came to mind since this may be the first time he’s ever been interviewed before.
I mean check out what big bad CC Brown’s own paper had to say about him:
Detroit Free Press – Brown was burned on the (Matt) Forte and (Adrian) Peterson plays, blew coverage on (Percy) Harvin’s 24-yard touchdown catch in last week’s loss to the Vikings, and had an easy interception bounce off his casted arm against the Eagles.” “There’s a reason that they call the position a safety, and it’s because he should keep you from giving up big plays,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “Our safeties have to get those guys on the field. … Sometimes it might not look pretty, you might get trucked, it might not be a classic-form tackle, but (you’ve) got to get them on the ground, and we haven’t done a good enough job there.’”
So your coach hates you. Your team hates you. Your old team hates you. And you suck at football. Taking shots at a guy 2 years removed from being Super Bowl MVP while you get shit on by everyone you know as the safety for a 1-4 team in a broken down ravaged city. Yeah I’m pretty sure Eli won’t take this too hard.
