Andre Brown: Yes, He Could Do It Again

The big question after Andre Brown had the best game of his career Sunday against Tampa Bay -- 13 carries 71 yards and a touchdown -- was could he do it again? Well, 20 carries, 113 yards and two touchdowns later in a 36-7 rout of the Carolina Panthers Thursday we know the answer.

The New York Giants' running back most certainly could.

"I'm just glad I responded to the bell," Brown said. "Everybody was saying it couldn't be done again, so I went out there and I ran hard. I did everything I could to go out there and make us come out of here with a win."

The Panthers are one of the teams who cut Brown during his vagabond career, and he admitted there was some extra motivation for him against Carolina, saying "that had a little bit to do with it."

Brown has been cut by the Giants, Panthers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins since being drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

"It really humbled me. Everything is not guaranteed," Brown said. "I'll just ride this wave. Hopefully it's a long wave."

Brown credited the play of the Giants' offensive line and fullback Henry Hynoski, saying "it's easy to run the ball behind a bunch of millionaires. They opened up big holes."

Brown certainly took advantage of them, and created a good amount of yardage on his own.
