So he's quit and been on welfare in the past? What did he quit prior to transferring from UT? What is everything else? Got a list?

Like most of your posts, this one is uninformed as well.

What in the world would some uninformed rube like you know about a young man for which you aren't acquainted?

[QUOTE=davethevol;6676592]No he won't. He's as soft as they come, which was evident at UT and Kansas and was also why he couldn't stand up to his dad. He has a ton of talent and seems like a nice guy, but he doesn't have the mental toughness to make this happen.[/QUOTE]

And you know these things how?

I've never seen so many people make characterizations about a guy without the first dam clue. It's quite amazing, but most of all, embarrassing to you and our fanbase.

He ran a 4.3 in private workouts at 6-1,220 lbs all after taking a full season off.

The eagles weren't the only ones impressed.

The eagles always take chances on guys, mike Vick, and they signed Cliff Harris the corner that got kicked out of Oregon.

It just goes to show the fallacy of the high school ratings - one guy is a true warrior and national champion - the other guy bails at the first sign of competition not once but twice.

IMHO, Brown will never be mature enough or have the gonads to play in the NFL - he needs to get his correspondence classes caught up and get some kind of college degree.

He was a superstar in high school - rated high coming out - maybe all the hype was a disadvantage but - he did less with what he had than anyone in recent memory.

Good pick by the Eagles in a throwaway draft position = there is about a 5 - 10% chance the man has football in him so give him a look. Bryce is a very poor man's Ricky Williams - I want to play - I don't want to play.....

Practice squad for a bit and then it's to the unemployment line.

I know these things because they happened in view of public. His dad made him de-commit from Miami. His dad made him leave UT. His dad made him then go play for Kansas State. And while at Kansas State when he did play he played like a wimp. If that doesn't show signals of someone that isn't mentally tough enough to you, then you've got blinders on.

And to claim that this is embarrassing to our fanbase is beyond idiotic since it has nothing to do with the Vols at this point.

That is impressive.. IMO he was worth a lowly draft because if he does benefit them for one season they haven't wasted anything. Potential and upsize but don't think he'll pan out!

Exceptions to the rule.

Is there precedent for someone like Brown to actually make it? I can't think of one player who essentially played second back for a season, transferred, then only carried 3/16 yds, got drafted, and made the cut. Just don't see it. Would be miraculous.

The Eagles once had a substitute teacher basically "walk on" and he played for 3 years.
