You clearly show that you either did not know about his injuries or just chose to ignore them. I am not saying he would have been great if healthy but would have been serviceable while he continued to learn. Also who lined up next to him at OG was nothing to write home about. Brooks did better as 2012 wore on but he was in Kubiak's dog house for reporting as a circus tent rather than a football player. Remember Mike Brisiel left after 2011 the year Newton was drafted (7th round) and was replaced at RG by a fat Brandon Brooks in 2012. Brooks could not beat out Ben Jones (college center) & who started most games. Brooks missed games due to toe injury 2013 but played at about 335. He is now about 325. He goes down and DB gains 20.

A slimmer Brooks will also benefit a slimmer Newton in his second full season as a starter. A stronger Brown and X now at LG should give us a much better Oline. Arian Foster says Namaste
