Brown Continues to Impress

It took only 3 catches for Tim Brown to accumulate 132 receiving yards against the Howard Bison. His ability to out-run coverage has made Brown a prime target for his newly acclimated young quarterback, Tom Savage. The incremental increase in the chemistry of the Scarlet Knights' passing attack has generated reason for hope after a slow start against the Cincinnati Bearcats in the home opener.

"That gives you a lot of confidence knowing we can just come and connect like that (after the loss). We just need to do that every week. Once we (begin to) do that and keep working hard, we can be a great offense" said Tim Brown.

With only 4 days to prepare for an encounter against the Howard Bison, many fans wondered whether that would have been enough time to right the offensive woes which were so apparent in their first contest.

When asked how the Scarlet Knights were able to so quickly bounce back from the abysmal performance last Monday, he admitted, "just coming out, practicing and not worrying about what happened Monday. I wanted to bring my guys along and show them that we can't do anything about the last game. We can only do something about this game and that's what we did. It feels good when you win."

The play of the Rutgers pro-style offense has been sparked by the emergence of Tom Savage who hooked up with Brown on 3 highlight reel catches throughout a dominant performance this past Saturday. Tim spoke a little about Tom and the formulation of their relationship.

"He's (Tom's) gonna be a great quarterback for this offense. I like how he chucked that thing. He let it go. Once he lets it go, it's my job to go get it for him. I just told Tom, when we get in the game, just let it fly. Don't worry about nothing. Let everything go and don't get out there and get nervous. Just play Rutgers football. And that's what he went out there and did. He kept all the distractions outside and looked like a college quarterback."

One of the main requirements of being a Rutgers upper-classman football player is to provide tutelage for the younger athletes on the roster. Tim addressed his interaction with and leadership style towards the abundance of his inexperienced peers at the wide receiver position.

"They did good. They've got a lot of work to do. Some guys were playing in their first college game. Those guys went out there and just worked hard. I just told them on the sideline to just work, run your routes, do everything we do in practice and there should be no worries."
