I suggest a nickname for him: Marlon "Touchdown" Brown.
He did drop a sure TD pass in the first half though. Let's hope that is behind him and he can move forward now, seeing that he looks damn impressive IMO.

Ironically, that's not very different than the other 5 years in which Joe has led the team to the playoffs. And this year Pittsburgh is particularly weak. So you've still got Joe and Smith, with Brown getting acclimated to the NFL. And Rice and Pierce. And Yanda and those other guys. (Both McKinnie AND Oher looked very bad today.) So for Joe, it's just business as usual. He's been the one main consistent factor over the past 5 years, and now that the D looks to be a little stronger and faster than last year, things will most likely just keep chugging along. The Ravens will win some ugly games. And lose some ugly games. And probably still make it into the playoffs. Then hopefully next year, the O-line will get addressed and by then who knows...Mellette contributes and maybe Furst and Juice. It's a funny thing, really. But the Ravens are in better shape than a lot of other teams. And Brown has all the makings of an impact player on offense the likes of which the Ravens have never really had. He just needed to get his shot, and he's getting it.
I like Marlon Brown. He looks like he has the making of a good receiver. But I think saying that nobody will be able to stop the Raven's passing game is a bit of a stretch. They struggled in the second half at Denver, and they were shut out at home by Cleveland in the first half today. It's a work in progress for sure, but I have a hard time seeing this team as an offensive machine while I watch the O-line struggle, the receivers as a whole struggle to get open consistently, and the play calling not looking a whole lot different from the Cameron era.
