Cardinals WR John Brown is getting major praise from his teammates
John Brown was a small school prospect from Pittsburg State that has really been super impressive. The Cardinals wide out burned Eagles defender Nate Allen for a huge play with minutes remaining to allow his Cardinals to get a win.
Brown’s 75-yard touchdown was made against defenders who talked all week about his speed and the importance of keeping him in front of them.
“We have to play deeper in that situation,” Williams said. “They made a play. I thought I was going to be able to catch him, but I couldn’t make that play. He was fast enough to get away from me. He was probably one of the fastest guys we went against.”
Allen said he hurt his hamstring on the play and would need testing on it when the team gets back to Philadelphia, but the problems started before that. Allen said he should have “gotten my depth” before Brown got past him.
“It’s on me,” Allen said. “I have to make that play. That’s the bottom line.”
Wide receiverJohn Brownhas been compared to some of the best small receivers in league history, but linebackerSam Achowent one step further.
“People compare him to Marvin Harrison. I think he’s better and I loved watching Marvin Harrison, but [Brown]’s unbelievable.”
