You knew it was coming — the “Dude” mention, not the five touchdowns against the New England Patriots.
Brown, who probably sat on your bench this week, gave owners a lovely surprise when he ran in four touchdowns with 113 yards rushing against a defense that hadn’t given up a single rushing touchdown this season, and as if that wasn’t enough (and to anger all Chad Pennington owners, a sour lot already), Ronnie Brown threw a touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano.
Apparently, Bill Belichick doesn’t watch a lot of Arkansas games. Maybe he should start. The direct snap drove the New England defense wild all day. I guess they put so much faith in a quarterback to win that they cannot fathom a QB being removed from the play.
From the Palm Beach Post:
“They outplayed us. They outcoached us,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “They obviously deserved to win.”
Who could have imagined that Bill Belichick would be uttering those words after their win streak was put to an end…at home in New England…to the Miami Dolphins…for the Dolphins’ first win of the season?
Sunday’s performance even made Ricky Williams get all Ricky-like.
Also from the Palm Beach Post:
Williams, though, said he saw this kind of performance coming. He explained with a story about growing wheat.
“You plant the seed, and the time between when you see nothing and when you see the sprout is just one day – it can happen just like that,” he said. “We just have to keep on working and reaping our harvest.”
I can imagine he knows a lot about growing plants.
