Is Antonio brown still a lineup lock?

Recommended Posts

I think I'm sitting him down. Two weeks in a row with Vick as has really hurt his numbers. I'm leaving points on my bench by playing him.

No, he's been Vicked. They should change the cursing sensor on the forum to Vick. As in:

 

Antonio got Vicked last night.

I lost by two Vicking points because Brown wasn't targeted

It's really Vicky that my season is going down the tubes since Big Ben out

I was just thinking this last night. With Vick at qb he's no longer a lock. I might sit him in my ppr league next week(crazy). Vick scrambles too much and looks for dump offs. Looks like as long as Ben is out they are a run 1st team.

Unless you're in an 8 team league you don't sit this guy. This is way reactionary. Yes, he has not done well with Vick, but I'd never sit him barring injury.

I don't think it is. It's clear their scheme has changed drastically.

I think I have betier options then him sitting on my bench.

absolutely sit him . The greatest WR in the world cant do it alone and right now he is alone in large part because of Vick . no reason to make him untouchable and after last night its even clearer . Sit him till Ben gets back

Steelers looked like they didn't even want to let Vick throw the ball at times last night. So it isn't just Vick being NOT BEN and all that, its the change in philosophy and a fear of throwing. (I only watched the first half, but recall a series late where they looked like they were just trying to kill the clock and not even try to gain yards or score.)

but, when Vick does throw, it seems he's locked-in on stupid Heyward-Bey (at least in the very limited amount of time I've seen any of the games since Big Ben went down - I did see the Brown drop in the end zone the first game Vick started, so maybe that's why?)...I don't know, it's just really bizarre that either he (Vick), Haley, or Tomlin are not utilizing their 2nd best weapon (behind Bell)...Vick still seems to have the arm strength to chuck the ball downfield, at least from what I saw on that comeback drive last night...

it seems like they play super conservative with vick at the helm. and it looks like vick is trying too hard not to mess up and not take risks qbs normally would.

This may be a little out there but I think Brown's size has a lot to do with it. Brown is a small, fast guy and Vick has a career 55% completion percentage. Vick can't get him the ball because he can't make the throws. He is throwing to Heyward-Bay more because he is a bigger target and Vick can just throw it near him and let him get it.

I would find it hard to sit Brown with my grandmother at QB .... and she's got a bum shoulder.

Well I think it is pretty evident that Vick is not a great throwing QB.

 

I think PIT knows this and will develop game plans that focus more on running the ball and heavy defense.

 

I think that means if you have a viable alternative it is not unthinkable to sit ABrown.

 

I know if I owned ABrown and sat him he would make me pay ...

A. Brown did drop an easy touchdown with Vick's first start, just saying.

i think he was just shocked that the ball actually made it to him and in his disbelief lost concentration...
