WHAT?! Say it ain't so! You mean to tell me that a cover corner that was statistically unable to cover ANYONE was actually one of the reasons for his defense's failures instead of a byproduct of them?! Am I to believe that it wasn't the Saints "weak" locker room that was responsible for him getting beaten like a red-headed step-child and flagged like the red-necked regular sitting at the end of the bar? I thought that rejoining the franchise that once was so successful in covering up his deficiencies as a player - before they deteriorated into laughable vulnerabilities - would help turn him into a productive contributor again.
Poor bastard thought he was slotting right back into the 'Legion Of Doom' and it turns out his career is Legion Of Doom'd. Guess a clean bill of health couldn't even help Brandon Browner remotely resemble a capable defensive back. Turns out there's no amount of fully functioning MCL's that could aide him in running step-for-step with an average NFL wide receiver. Who knew? With all the shit he was consistently talking throughout the last 12 months you could have sworn the guy was well on his way to backing it all up. It's a real shame that his age, attitude, indifference, and general lack of skill or ability finally caught up to him. It honestly couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
P.S. I wrote this as if it were a forgone conclusion that Brandon Browner was going to get cut. In the interest of full disclosure I was deathly afraid that he was going to have a career resurgence in Seattle and turn Week 8 against the Saints into his coming (back) out party, so I won't be disingenuous and act like I didn't dodge a bullet as I return fire at the corpse of a cornerback.
