Because they are basically stuck. He does a good job of getting players in position and his teammates like him. But in terms of individual performance he has been dreadful
Did you miss borland basically searching for somebody to block him? He allowed so many cutbacks by just crashing into a blocker and then being unable to get off of the block
Did you watch the game? A lot of those "tackles" were falling on the pile or "cleaning up." He spent atleast 50-60% of the plays getting blocked 10 yards downfield. His inability to get off of blocks is more concerning than his lack of speed
Yes, but when the opposing teams can single out a player and that player spends most of his time willingly looking to get blocked, it presents an issue
People said the same thing about northwestern and michigan state. Those teams still picked on him
He is easily the best middle linebacker we have. We need him
Tuf is getting destroyed. Cant get off a block
I said before the season that the oline would.be an upgrade from last years. Was I wrong because most of the guys never started a game before?
You are hardcore tuf stan. You posted some terrible shit about browning before that ended up getting deleted because it was so bad. Tuf could know where every single play is going but it doesnt matter because he is so slow and cant get off of blocks
I hope they just start carton right away. This team and its ceiling will rely on his growth at PG
When you have no rebuttal you fall on this lazy excuse. You probably said the same things last year when defending tuf
Is he NEEDED? I think he can play against those teams but its not like he adds something that browning doesnt. Remember that michigan st was originally on the list of teams that he will be "needed" against and look what happened
So let's say a surgeon messes up a surgery, are we not allowed to question him because we aren't surgeons as well? I dont know the process of how a football play breaks down like a coach does, but I can tell when something isnt right. When tuf borland gets his ankles broken by brian lewerke, I know that isnt good regardless of gap assignment or play design.
What is different about wisconsin and michigan state in terms of style of play? He was supposed to look good against michigan state and Brian lewerke juked him out of his cleats on a keeper
This is so stupid and lazy. We heard the same excuses last year. I like what the coaches are doing but nobody is perfect. I think they are just trying to not stir up issues by outright benching a captain. Davis really put them in a tough spot
The coaches were put in a tough spot because of bill Davis and schiano starting tuf last year. You can tell they favor browning but they dont want to cause discord in the locker room by removing tuf right away
You act like browning is a 6'1 220 lb nickel linebacker. Hes bigger than tuf. Hes got atleast 10 lbs on him. Sure tuf is ok on run downs, but can you even argue that hes better than browning at that?
Did you watch the game? Lewerke juked tuf out of his cleats. If you are only effective when a guy runs straight at you, then you shouldn't play
But are we sure that borland is better than browning in that in the box role? I dont think so
You talk like browning is a 6'1 220 lb nickel linebacker. Hes bigger than tuf
But he whiffs a lot

All good. Nobody is perfect on predictions.
Lmao the dude waddles downfield with the speed of a 320 lb OG. Hes going to run like a 4.9 at the combine
Stop talking out of your ass. His eyes were in the backfield because he has the job of spying Martinez. Tuf never had that assignment for obvious reasons. Browning has way more tackles than tuf and it shows. Browning makes plays has responsibilities that tuf if physically unable to perform
