    "Now that my brother has lost a step or two, and isn't playing at a phenomenal level anymore, I'm ready to step up......"

    No, that isn't what he said, or even what he meant, but c'mon. Erin wasn't anywhere NEAR as good as pre-injury EJ. Still isn't. But EJ isn't either.

    If he wants to move out of his brother's shadow, he should become a car salesman... which will probably happen in a year or two anyways. Sorry Erin, but you're no good.

    I think Erin is a solid player, but he's no Pro-Bowler...and that's what EJ was prior to his injury. I see Erin as more of a Leber type player - real solid, no frills guy.

    The sad truth that I mentioned above is that the only reason Erin stands a chance of stepping out of EJ's shadow is that EJ isn't what he was. Pre-Injury EJ was a force...now he's simply a solid player.

    The way I look at it is he has already had 4 years to step out from behind EJ's shadow, but hasn't been able to do it. While he has improved from his rookie year & been a more solid player & draw less penalties, I don't think in his 5th year he will have some huge breakout season & become or surpass the type of player EJ was.
