Brian Westbrook exceeded all expectations. An injury prone, undersized back out of ‘Nova? Yeah I’d pass on him too. Selected in the third round by Philadelphia Brian was a projected third-down back. Injuries to Duce Staley and Correll Buckhalter catapulted him into the starting line-up in 2004… And a problem was born. For the next four years Westbrook gave opposing defenses fits. Hiding everywhere on the field coordinators donned the term “Where’s Westbrook?”
With the emergence of LeSean McCoy following Brian’s departure Philly natives are often quick to forget B-West’s contributions. He was the best pass catching running back in the league. He was our everything.
Where’s Westbrook? Doesn’t matter. Still couldn’t stop him. Thanks for everything!
