What Has Happened To Bryce Brown?

It’s an absolute mystery why Bryce Brown has not played this season. During the preseason I wrote about how special this guy was and how every time he played he was dynamic and awesome!

But the Bills choose to forget they have him when our rushing game has had very little success.

C.J. Spiller seemed motivated in the first few games as he had to know that Brown was acquired by the Bills to not sit on the bench.

But I now question why they traded for him when it’s obvious that C.J. has not been the same, struggling to gain only 8 yards against the Lions on 10 carries.

You can say our offensive line has struggled against great defenses in the past two games but Fred Jackson is in the same backfield and has had better results. An example was clearly demonstrated in our last game against those same Lions where Fred gained 49 yards on 10 carries for a respectful 4.9 average.

Jackson also blocks better where C.J. has become a liability in this regard.

C.J.’s blocking is horrendous, which in most cases causes our quarterback to have no time and get sacked. C.J. decided to not give a hoot blocking against the Lions which caused Kyle Orton to get sacked inside our 3 yard line!

It’s time to bring Bryce Brown out from wherever they have him hiding and have him playing with Fred in the same way C.J. has tried to play with results that have worsened.

I have outlined in my preseason game 1 recap all about Bryce Brown and how I thought he would help big time in making this the best group of running backs in the league. Forget being the best now as were one of the worst and we need this 23 year old to play more than ever to add the spark needed to help our team. 

Anthony Dixon played some in the first few games and did good when he was in, but he is not the same caliber of player as Brown.

This looks like C.J.’s last year in Buffalo and it’s clearly time to have Bryce Brown play, as he is the future.
