"He's got to take some shots," Brown said of Vick on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com. "I told him, trust me a little bit. Let me make some plays. Let's get a victory. It doesn't have to be that hard."
Brown has been targeted just 15 times in Vick's two games compared to 35 targets in the season's first three weeks.
"It's very important," Vick said of getting the ball to Brown. "I'm still working on that. This week we said we're not going to put an emphasis on it. We're just going to let everything happen naturally, go out there and play to win, that's the most important thing. ... Trust me, those plays are going to come."
Brown's message is a fair one. He's money in the bank, as evidenced by the streak of 35 games with at least five catches for 50 yards that ended once Vick entered the lineup. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley isn't going to allow Vick to throw the ball all over the field, but when he does get the chance he should be looking Brown's way much of the time.
