2005: Andre Brown’s Touchdown Run

With FSU coming to town on Thursday night, we thought that it would be fun to look back to last year’s big play with Andre Brown. Additionally, we always liked this entry and thought that we would bring it back up today.

    What makes the Brown kid special is that just when you think he has reached 5th gear, he kicks it up one more notch and can outrun any secondary. There are very few backs in the game who can do that. For this reason he is a lock to play on Sundays.

    The left guard absolutely laid waste to a BC lineman then it was all AB from then on.

    Brown later explained his thoughts on the play…

    Uh, excuse me, I smell end zone. You might want to get the hell out my way, and uh, while you’re at it, take that stiff arm wit ya.

    Is Evans can open up with a few completions it should open up the run game tonight for Andre and he should have a huge game… They key is getting out to a good start early..

    It’s hard for any running back to get into any gear when he’s getting slammed behind the line of scrimmage on more plays than not.

    That’s where the mix of passing, and passing often, makes all the difference. Quick slants, screens, whatever, something has be there to set the defense back on it’s heels.

    I’ve been wondering why the O gets stopped for no gain on one down and gains 10 or 15 on the next. Watching the center and guard cross block and the tackle seal the gap with a block on the LB, it’s easy to see that one missed block causes the play to implode. OTH when the play works, it works for big yardage. This is like passing. One time incomplete, the next time first down.

    ^I noticed the cross blocking schemes and was a little perplexed in some situations also early on. If you go back down and watch the clip of Andre Brown’s TD run you’ll see an almost perfect example of what you’re talking about. Also how it can open up the middle and make for some BIG gains with the RB tandem we have.

    Actually, we’re on that thread already, that is exactly what you’re talking about, and I’m leaving now.
