Yep, BOTH were definitely a problem. And his unrested turf toe was definitely a significant factor in Brown's down year. But Brown was forever looking to his right while cheating to the right to compensate Smith's poor play. That contributed to a decent share of the D managing to get outside and around Brown too often.
