What Would Buddy Do?
Things I learned about (embattled?) Eagles wideout Reggie Brown and classic rock today

After being a healthy scratch Sunday against the G-Men, erstwhile Eagles starting wideout Reggie Brown seems to be inching toward earning a permanent “Embattled” prefix to his name.  Certainly I’m surprised (as a fan and close follower of the team) to see that Reggie Brown can’t even earn a spot on the substitutes bench — even Greg Lewis dresses! — though that probably has more to do with the fact that the rest of the backup WRs play special teams than anything else.

Still, we don’t often see guys with extensions sat down like this, so I appreciated the always intrepid Les Bowen’s blow-by-blow of his attempt to squeeze some quotes out of Brown in the locker room yesterday.  Of particular interest was this passage:

Brown has a weekly Monday night radio show on WMGK, done in tandem with the station’s nightly “Get the Led Out” Led Zeppelin hour. That’s an odd mix, the quiet, reserved African-American wideout from Georgia and Robert Plant’s castrato wail. This past Monday, Brown and the show’s host, Ray Koob, talked about the victory over the Giants and Brown’s razzing of Giants receiver Domenik Hixon, from the bench, after Hixon dropped a long bomb from Eli Manning. They talked about how Brown dressed warmly for the cold, blustery afternoon.They did not discuss the fact Brown did not play in the game.

Yesterday, as Brown stepped into the weight room, off-limits to reporters, McNabb advised the persistent reporter to “ask Andy.”

A couple things here:

1.  Reggie Brown has a radio show?  On WMGK?  And it’s a Led Zeppelin show?  WHUH?

2.  Gotta love Dunavin playing protective older brother with Brown.  Guess he doesn’t hate Brown as much as had been rumored (and as much as Bowen had subtly suggested in the article).  Good for McNabb.
