Brown continues having difficulty running precise routes, reports the Sporting News.

Recommendation: Nothing frustrates a quarterback more, and Ben Roethlisberger admitted that Brown is "often turning the wrong way or is out of position when the ball is thrown." Already in competition with Emmanuel Sanders, this will not help Brown's chances. He caught only two of the nine balls thrown his way against Baltimore Sunday.

I wouldn't doubt that, there were so throws were Ben looked like he threw it to absolutely no one, which could be explained by Brown going to the wrong spot on the field. Brown may have gotten cocky from the preseason and thinks he can just break off his routes when ever he wants.

Hard to say; the whole team looked bad. Now I know what Jet fans must have been thinking last year in the Championship game; huuuuh!

Not exactly...Sure the Steelers dominated the first half of that game but in the second half, NY came almost all the way back. They had a chance later in the game but dug themselves too deep in the first half.

NO! The Jets mounted a come back and made it a close game. We stunk it up the entire 3 hours.

Both Brown and Sanders ran some wrong routes on Sunday. That certainly wasn't the difference in the game or anything though. They are both still young, and Brown spent a lot of time on special teams last year. Mainly playing on offense in the last part of the season. He's still learning, but yes when a WR runs a wrong route it can be a disaster, especially on the timing routes. If the QB expects him to be in one spot and he's in another it's a sure TD the other way or at the very least a blown opportunity.

Noticed this today too, AB was out of position on several occasions today. In particular Ben had to motion him in so he would be in position for the quick slant, which was converted for a big first down.

Also, Brown has problems reading defenses, something that Emmanuel Sanders does much, much better.

For example, during a play today, there was a Seahawk offside when the ball was snapped. Sanders immediately saw this and ran a streak, and Ben immediately knew that Sanders saw it and he threw it deep. It was ultimately incomplete as two Seahawks collided with each other, and offsetting penalties negated any favorable yards for us, but it still shows that Sanders is "in-the-game," if you will.

While this isn't technically reading a defense, it's still being aware of what's happening, something that has been well documented is a strong point for Sanders and a weak one for Brown.

I read an article where Hines mentioned AB running the wrong route on a TD catch he had against the Redskins in preseason. AB was celebrating and Ward had to go and point out that he ran the wrong route.
