Chargers HC Norv Turner on RB Ronnie Brown:
"Taking nothing away from Mike Tolbert, who caught more than 50 balls for us, but when he was singled-up because of the way people played Antonio Gates, we didn’t get the big plays out of him we did with Sproles. I know Ronnie Brown is going to make big plays because he has the ability to make the first tackler miss.”
And don’t forget Brown all but invented the wildcat in Miami. Norv won’t be afraid to use it.
“We got some big plays out of the wildcat with LT and Sproles,” he said. “It’s not something we’re going to major in, but if we run it four-five times a game, it isn’t going to take anything away from Philip, and it’s something defenses have to prepare for.”
At the very least, it sounds like Brown is entrenched as the backup to Ryan Mathews.
