    Wow, can't imagine D. Brown literally crying after each game in the locker room because he felt so overwhelmed and outclassed by opposing players..amazing what a few years did. Now clearly among the best at his position.

    Just wanted to say that I really miss the days of Salaam, Pitts, Weary and Hutchison.

    Can't think of another LT I would want rather than DB right now. Would take him over Thomas, Clady or Long imo.

    I'm sure that motivated him to become the player he is now. Some guys would have lost confidence and just thought they weren't good enough to make it in the NFL, or settled on being a decent backup.

    I do remember the stories about Duane getting a "baptism by fire" and that rough opening schedule in '08.

    The story would have the same effect without including that he cried. That's not cool, imo.

    Not to me. I doubt most people think many of these players are human or care enough to get that worked up over getting beat like a drum, especially since they get paid. The part about him crying makes it even better because you know to what level he dropped but didn't give up. Hopefully Brown doesn't care because he's got nothing to be ashamed of.
