Someone make me feel better about Brossette

He is a local guy. I bet he has good character, leadership and sets a good example in the locker room and practice.

Yet, I have yet to see anything about him that makes me think he is up to being a strong contributor as a RB for a SEC team.

What am I missing in his play and offering?

Be Nice. This is not a slam of him as a person.

This is purely a question relating to what makes anyone think he can be a main horse/contributor as a LSU RB this year.

I am getting an uneasy feel that reminds me of Les Miles playing players he likes, vs the best we have.

I hope Coach O knows there is zero margin for such a move.

I think he does, but his comments mentioning him have me concerned.

Or, again, perhaps my assessment is off?

(ps...Exclude his HS action from your assessment. That is several years ago. Talking about his fit to the offense and/or capability this upcoming year only).

Never really recovered from his knee injury. (Probably more mental than physical)
Tentative runner.
Lacks vision.

Don’t know if this makes you feel better, but I’ll offer the following:
- he arrived at a time when two of the best we’ve ever had were here;
- he has good size for RB and I think adequate speed;
- not sure about intangibles such as balance and vision but he might - jury still out;
- we haven’t really seen what he can do as he got yanked quickly after his fumble against Troy (understandably);
- he seems to have a good attitude. Plays special teams without complaining which usually reflect a willingness, if not desire, for contact and physicality.

Bottom line is we just don’t know but will find out soon. But I don’t think one horrible fumble and being stuck on a depth chart behind 2 elite backs should have us concluding that he isn’t SEC worthy.

Heard the coaches were really high on his pass protection abilities. Maybe we could move him to tackle

He runs upright and also runs like he waiting to get hit vs issuing the blow first

When he fumbles he cries. So maybe you could say he plays with emotion? Maybe he can channel that somehow?

In this offense, a pass-blocking RB may be much more important than in past years. His experience and willingness to protect the QB may be a valuable asset to have.

He is better than this board gives him credit for. Apparently the coaching staff aren’t the only ones who still haven’t forgiven him for the Troy game.

Wrong. He was a four star.

He's seemed to be a little snake bit. He had a knee injury and missed a year, then the fumble in the Troy game put him in the dog house.

I don't remember seeing him a lot, but do remember thinking he didn't look half bad when he got chances.

Dude just hasn't played much because he's played behind the 2 best RBs in program history his entire tenure. We don't know if he'll be good or not. The hate this board has for Brossette is absolutely laughable.

You know, most will say i'm crazy with this posting....
But we don't know, Running Behind Fornette/Williams/Guice not much left for you to do....

One comment i read "he is slow to the hole" NO WAY.....
He waiting for the hole...

My dad and i were talking about him and there were many occasions watching the game that i said "he runs like Marcus Allen" No one gets a clean KILL SHOT on him....

But we as fans we all PAINFULLY "REMEMBER THE FUMBLE"....
He will be a nobody or surprise everyone.... I'm leaning with the surprise everyone as their's no pressure, because no one expects him to perform....

I'm going to say THIS YEARS SLEEPER for the Tigers
watch his highlights, NOBODY GETS A WICKED HIT ON HIM...

Wasn't he dealing with personal family issues when he cried after that fumble or am I thinking of someone else?

I think he's got the biggest chip on his shoulder on the whole team. I expect him to run with a little fire this season. Might not amount to much, but he'll be working his frickin arse off.

Can't, not up to standard RB's at LSU. Watch CURRY when he gets a chance.
