New York Giants’ Stevie Brown Added to Pro Bowl Ballot

Following a two-interception performance on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints that brought his team-leading total to seven, the NFL decided it was time to recognize the season New York Giants safety Stevie Brown is having. Accordingly, the third-year player out of Michigan has been added to the Pro Bowl ballot.

Brown, who has started the last nine game for Big Blue, is also second in the league with his seven interceptions, trailing only Tim Jennings of the Chicago Bears who has eight.

The 25-year-old Brown was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders, where he collected 30 tackles in 15 games during his rookie season. After being released, he spent a portion of the 2011 season with the Indianapolis Colts and then signed with the Giants in early April.

In addition to his seven interceptions and franchise record 259 interception return yards, Brown also has 61 tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, three stuffs and eight passes defended in 13 games this season.

    Good for him. Everyone loves an underdog.

    I’ve heard a lot of the talking heads on ESPN and NFL Network citing the mantra that Atlanta is “a different team at home” as a reason for why they’re picking them to win on Sunday. At home, they’re 6-0 thus far and, while “a win is a win” and some of these games may point to them showing some late game intestinal fortitude, their margin of victory suggests they’re not the invincible home juggernaut we’d be lead to believe:

    Denver +6
    Carolina +2
    Oakland +3
    Dallas +6
    Arizona +4
    N. Orleans +10

    The Denver game was of course the game where Peyton **** the bed with 3 1st half interceptions and STILL almost pulled out the win.

    The Carolina and Oakland wins came on last second field goals.

    In the NO game, despite Brees throwing 5 INTs, it was still a 1 possession game with 4:30 to go.

    Ryan threw 5 picks in the Arizona game but thanks to the Cardinal’s incredible level of ineptness, the Falcons pulled this one out late in the 4th.

      I was making this point the other day but you have detailed it much better. Actually, that Carolina game was won because the idiot safety let White get behind him on a Ryan heave from the Atlanta’s own 5. Atlanta has found ways but have been a little fortunate at times. Going to Atlanta is no daunting task.

    He’s played well enough to merit consideration. But the truth about the matter is if not for Role and Phillips working with Hill and Brown neither are at the level they are now. Don’t get me wrong, both kids (especially Hill) are obviously talented.

    But they have two of the best safeties in football showing them the ropes and that is huge. So all four deserve credit. The vets for teaching and the kids for taking the initiative to learn. Polar opposites of Randle who “ALREADY KNOWS IT ALL”.

    The Falcons don’t scare anyone. However, the Giants find themselves with the following issues to resolve:

    Defensive tackle play: I’m waiting…………………………..
    JPP injury: A bit more than we’ve been told.
    Prince injury: That really hurts. He says (to his credit) just rap it.
    Boley injury: The lone roster player who even resembles an NFL linebacker?
    Webster: When is he going to step up? Can he?
    Tuck: Never mind schooling Wilson, when is he going to start being a factor?
    Depth behind Wilson: This has to be addressed next year.

    All of those things if not upgraded will in the end sabotage the Giants run.
    Adrenaline and hormones will only carry them so far. Two or three games at the most. At some point their talented ball players have to be on the field and functioning at a high level. I am very concerned about this game because of lack of pass rush generated by Tuck and the injured JPP.

      Theres not a team in the NFL outside the Patriots whos fans cant come up with far more worries that that one. Team is 8-5 and has murdered the 2 best teams they have played. Are they a little nicked and a little flawed? Yes. But saying now that this list wil undo them is ill advised at best..

    •  kinsho says:

      Don’t forget about Keith Rivers. Rivers found his way back on the injury list after he burned his retinas by glancing at the sun. He is expected to heal within a week though, so I’m not too worried about him.

  5.  The Original G Man says:

    Deion Sanders, in a total Jon Gruden move, says both Rolle AND Brown should make the Pro-Bowl.

    •  demo3356 says:

      I agree with him.. Cant think of 3 guys more deserving. Both Rolle and Brown have been monsters this year.

      •  GOAT56 says:

        The Atl safeties are very good too. It’s probably the only area in their team I think has been underrated.

  6.  demo3356 says:

    Just saw the Nicks and Cruz Footlocker commercial on ESPN.. Awesome!

  7.  demo3356 says:

    I’m with Tuck..Last thing we need is this kid tweaking his knee doing a back flip and us starting a backfield of Lumpkin and toarain..

  8.  kinsho says:

    Excellent. Stevie Brown at the very least deserves consideration. Nobody has intercepted as many balls this season outside of Tim Jennings and Jerry Sandusky now that he’s in prison. Well deserved.

  9.  The Original G Man says:

    While I of course loved PFT’s predictions for the Falcons game, I found their reasoning for same dead on:

    Giants at Falcons

    MDS’s take: The Falcons are still the favorites to earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, but I think the Giants are the better team. It wouldn’t surprise me to see the Giants win in Atlanta in December and then do it again in January.

    MDS’s pick: Giants 30, Falcons 20.

    Florio’s take: The Falcons need a win to prove they can win in the playoffs. The Giants need a win to help ensure they’ll get to the playoffs. This one feels like the NFC version of Texans-Patriots.

    Florio’s pick: Giants 31, Falcons 21.

    •  GOAT56 says:

      MDS has the same take I havehad on the redskin game for a few weeks:

      Redskins at Browns

      MDS’s take: The Redskins have been red hot lately, but the Browns are better than people give them credit for. Whether it’s Robert Griffin III or Kirk Cousins, the Redskins’ quarterback is going to have a tough time against Cleveland’s defense, and I like the Browns to win a close, low-scoring game.

    I’ve thought all season that Atlanta was a big fat fraud
    I’d call them a paper tiger, but I don’t like crediting them in any way with the word tiger, no matter how modified
    that said, the giants forever scare me, not for the reasons rlhrj mentions above; but because winning would be too easy
    what’s the point of putting a hammerlock on the division and the playoffs when you can keep the drama alive?
