If BB can get to about 220 this offseason, he'll be the perfect behemoth sized RB to be Lesean's pound.

Someone needs to make him run a 40 to see how fast he is.

Bryce Brown's 347 rushing yards over the last two games is second in Eagles history behind Steve Van Buren's 379 rushing yards in November 1949

That is some hefty numbers compared to quite a player. But he will surely never be a Steve Van Buren. He has the tools to be a better/bigger Westbrook. Achievement wise.

I love Bryce Brown's mix of size and speed. The guy is so fast.

He needs to improve his ball handling and also he tries to bounce it outside too often when the play is lost.

I'm only repeating what's been said over and over but McCoy+Brown is going to be nasty if we use them right.

He needs to use him size more. Drop your shoulders and run through someone.

Easily becoming one of my favorite non-Browns. What a scary two back system you guys will have for years to come!

The styles of Brown and McCoy mesh extremely well together. Maybe more so than other top 2 backs in NFL history.

Think of what the defense has to prepare for when Brown is in the game. They have to full on sprint and get the right angle every time. Now, McCoy is in the game and because you are sprinting to the ball it makes it wayyy easier to juke and cut other defenders. Vice versa as well. Quick vs. Fast and Elusive vs. Power.

It has me salivating.

He's shown a lot of lower body strength, dude bounced off like 5 tacklers on a few of his runs last night. He's got special talent. Him and Shady could be an elite duo for a few years, then we either trade one for a first rounder or keep a DeAngelo Williams / Jonathan Stewart deal going on.

Bryce Brown needs another 150 rushing yards to beat the Eagles rookie rushing record set by McCoy in 2009.

Except 10x better than that duo.

It was freaking nice to see a guy break some tackles and keep running.
I didn't know what to do so I just got naked.

as long as Bryce holds on to the ball I agree.

We have 2 legitimate special talents at the running back position.

I want a coach that'll run the ball 30-35 times a game next season. 20 rushes for Shady, 15 for Bryce. Dennison would be the perfect HC for us.

I know its early and Bryce is fumbling, but I would definitely lean towards giving Bryce the bigger amount of carries. Because he of his size, decisiveness, and better speed. He is just more talented and I cannot believe I'm saying this, because McCoy is a Top 3 RB.

I've been bumping this bandwagon since TC and it's not stoping anytime soon.

I disagree, you use Shady in the first three quarters as the guy toting the rock, make defenses chase him sideline to sideline, then pound them when they are tired with Bryce. Plus the fumbling issues and the money. Shady is better in space and as a receiver.
