Ralph Brown on Overtime talks Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
Ralph Brown joins Jeff Thurn on Thursday’s edition of Overtime.
Brown is a former Nebraska All-American, and two-time Super Bowl participant (Giants in 2000, Cardinals in 2009). He played 10 seasons in the NFL for the Cardinals, Vikings, Browns, and Giants. Hear his conversation with Thurn below:
Should Nebraska have concerns about their run game and can they rely on Tommy Armstrong if opponents slow Ameer Abdullah down?
"I think there should be a little bit of concern. You look at that offensive line, they didn't try to dictate terms and be really aggressive and control the line of scrimmage. They've had struggles to get the ball to Ameer Abdullah. You look at the McNeese State game, at the end of the game Abdullah had to have that magical catch to get into the end zone. So, Nebraska has to figure out what they are going to do if an opposing stops Abdullah. They are going to have rest on the arm of (Tommy) Armstrong to get the W's in these games and moving forward they are not going to have an easy slate of games. You know they play Northwestern next weekend and we will see how it goes."
