Looks Like We Get To Boo Josh Brown Again

I don’t know if you’d heard, but the Rams released former Seahawks Kick Josh Brown a couple of days ago. Thus ended the yearly ritual of booing the him when the Rams would come to CenturyLink.

I’m not sure if you remember, but Brown was a popular player in Seattle, at least for a kicker. He had a knack for coming up big at the end of games. When his contract came up, Mike Holmgren made it a priority to bring him back. That’s when things went stupid.

Brown didn’t like the contract that that was offered to him, so he ran to the Rams who were looking to upgrade the position. Holmgren and company matched the offer, but Brown was apparently still hurt over the initial offer and refused to it, choosing instead to sign with the Rams rather than become the “slave to the businessman.”

He even later claimed that the contract dispute had nothing to do with it, and that his defection to the division rival was “all about winning.” Too bad the Seahawks had been dominating the division, and the Rams were on the path to becoming perpetually awful. That sure seemed to work out for him, didn’t it?

And so we would Boo. It was a yearly ritual. And it was always good fun, but that fun has ended, or at least we thought it had.

Instead, Brown signed with the NY Jets yesterday. (You had to know he’d land somewhere. We may like to laugh at his expense around here, but he’s still one of the better kickers in the NFL.) And guess what? The Jets visit CenturyLink on November 11th.

I guess we get to continue our immature, but incredibly fun little game for one more year.

    Yes, I’ll be booing. I’ll never forget the “all about winning” statement. What a toad.

     @Asthmagirl Normally I don’t support Booing ex-Seahawks. Guys like Heater will get booed for taking the money the Saints offered, but I don’t think you can blame a guy for talking the big contract when the Seahawks were matching it. Brown is just a different story. They guy is just such a immature and stupid little man. All the “slave to the businessman” garbage, holy cow. 

  • Asthmagirl

     @Keith_12thMR I would never boo the Heater for taking the job in New Orleans. Just like I would never boo Matt Hasselbeck or Big Play Babs. It is a business after all. But the crap with Josh Brown – “Its all about the winning!”
    Its all about the winning so you go to St Louis? What a bunch of garbage. Just say it’s about the money and move on.

    Loved to boo him after the stupid comments! BUT no way I am booing the HEATER, Seattle could have had him back and chose to move on- personally I think a mistake!

     @Hawkman The Saints knew Vilma was going to get suspended and threw a top of money and 5 years at him. The Seahawks weren’t going to commit that much to him. Personally, I can’t argue with either choice. The Seahawks needed to improve the position, and Heater would have been stupid to say no to that much cash.
