    What would you guys give to have him back? He was never afraid to
    stick his head in on the run, and he's never been the liability our current
    crop of safeties are back there. He's starting for the Giants, just
    so you know.

    Our safeties keep making the same mistake in that formation. Instead of
    "staying at home" and eliminating the cut back lane, they bite IN and get
    BURNED on a WIDE ASS OPEN LANE into the endzone. I'm not sure C.C.,
    who has always been a solid safety, would have made the same mistake.

    You can't call him Petey, because he's a STARTER on a Superbowl contender.

    The Texans FO continually bungle up stuff like the CC Brown situation. Rick Smith, when he walked into CC's hospital room shortly after he had surgery, told him point blank "Hopefully this won't hinder you from getting signed by another team" and the Texans basically treated him like yesterdays news from then on out...CC is a good guy and layed it out for the team week in, week out,,,

    Probably the way they're going to do Pitts as well,,,


    This is the attitude towards the players from the top down,,,

    Alot of people think when a former Texan is on another team and says stuff about the FO that its just "Hating" on the Texans,,,,seems they have a common foot to stand on,,,

    I'm referrring to C.C. Brown. He now starts for the Giants. I was answering
    Norg's post about bringing Greenwood and Faggins back.

    Point is, those two are not in Brown's class.

    i think when we out of the playoffs math wise we should start

    John Busing
    Brice McCain
    Bernard Pollard
    Glover Quin

    See what we got draft some more rooksters in the OS Rinse and repet

    and also Cut Dunta Punk ass and most of the secondary

    C.C. Brown would be an upgrade at SS right now. To me, that's a ringing endorsement of how pathetic we are at the position.

    Don't doubt it. Instead of going with a known commodity, Rick Smith keeps rolling the dice with UDFA's. I'll never understand it.

    I always thought CC got a bad rap around here.

    Whatever happened to Will Demps? He went from Pro-Bowl alternate to unheard of in one off-season.

    He's only starting b/c kenny phillips is done for the season. before that, he was right where he should've been all along when he was with us, on the bench & playing special teams.

    I won't be surprised if he plays better there though. The Giants actually have a pass rush!

    Seriously.

    He is a free agent last I heard and I think he'd be an upgrade over anything we have in the backfield right now.

    The Giants have injuries at the safety position which is why he is starting, just so you know.

    This is a typical garbage thread from our fan base. We rip our current players apart for crappy incosistent play. Then when they leave we want them back and start threads about how he was never a liability against the run, and was the best thing since pockets, or the internet.

    That's not the point. Brown is not good enough to play for us but some lowly team like the Giants can make it work. It's the same as McCree starting for the Chargers for years after we let him walk. We let go of Brown but think that Brandon Harrison is going to upgrade the position. nice

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    What would I give for CC back?

    I'd give him the peice of shit he left on the field the last time he was here. That peice of shit is also called his "game".

    The Giants can make it work? He has started 1 game for them so far, because of injuries. As far as the Texans letting him go, I can only assume his injury was cause for concern before inking him to an extended contract. And I dont like Brandon Harrison either, but he was already under contract.

    They had years to evaluate Harrison and projected him as a starter. Reeks of Stacey Mack syndrome

    The Giants will make it work. That is just what they and other good football teams do. They didn't do too bad on D yesterday with him in there. Sure they were playing the Bucs but shutting out a team in their own stadium is an accomplisment no matter who they are.
