Since we're just all about the Texans secondary here at SB Nation Houston today, why not take a look in at ex-safety C.C. Brown? After being let go, he joined on with the Giants and provided some spectacular lowlights, culminating in one of the most rejoiced benchings in recent NFL memory. Brown caught on with the Lions this year, but I'm sure he took the high road about the New York media, right?â†µ
But Brown was benched in early November after getting beat deep more than once during a three-game losing streak in which the Giants' defense twice allowed 40 or more points. The joke among Giants fans and in the New York tabloid media was that his initials stood for "Can't Cover."â†µ
"I don't even want to comment on that, because I still, at times, get sensitive about how they did me (wrong) there," Brown said. "The biggest thing with New York is the media controls the team. So whatever the media says, that's what's gonna happen."â†µ
Asked if he felt like he was a scapegoat for the Giants' defensive struggles, he added, "I was, I was. Me being the new guy, I was the first guy on the block to be blamed. But it's all right. It's water under the bridge."â†µ
I'd just like to state for the record that calling him Can't Cover is incredibly inaccurate.â†µ
Because that implies that he can tackle.
