No, Brown is not our best corner. He was last year and possibly the year before, but not this year. He is the least feared and seemingly the most tested CB on the team. He gives up a lot of shorter, but still drive-sustaining plays every single game. Brock has been playing better than him and Rogers has actually been pretty good this year. Brown is 3rd best, maybe.
Brock has been playing out of his mind right now. And yes, better than Brown this year IMO. Brown has been having a pretty solid, although down year for his standards. If this is any indication that he is beginning to wind down, perhaps Baalke made the right move locking up Brock instead (younger, cheaper, more upside) and (assuming) he will let Brown walk if they don't come to contract terms, some other team will overpay for him but it certainly won't be us.
But with that said, to respond to the op, Brown >>>> Wright any day bro. Sorry, but I'm not sold on Wright. Maybe it's nerves, he needs to shake off the rust, but I think he has been the weakest link in the secondary and I'm afraid Seattle will expose him on Sunday. I'd feel much better if Brown is active this week.
