The league fined Brown after the New Orleans game for wrestling his man to the ground on the last play and elbowing him in the back. Brown says he will try not to do that again. Control. He must play under control.
Copeland will try to make him lose that control. He will talk again. Yes, he will. Brown will try to resist again. They will be caught in their belligerent tango, forms and faces, push and shove, two men going through the same revolving door at the same time. They will try to beat each other senseless one more time. Copeland is in the second year of a five-year, $15 million contract. Brown is in the first year of a six-year, $27 million contract.
Mayhem is not without its rewards.
