Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
Ahhh, Election Day. I don't normally talk about politics, especially on a sports blog, so I will continue to not talk about politics. Mike Vick and the Eagles suffered another setback, Josh Morgan was involved again in the run game and one former Hokie welcomes a new family member.
As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:
James Anderson, LB Carolina Panthers- Anderson and the Panthers won against the Redskins, with the former Hokie linebacker earning five total tackles, one as a solo. Anderson also broke up a pass intended for Josh Morgan.
5 TAK, 1 SOLO, PD
Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers- After pulling in his first NFL reception last week, Boykin pulled in receptions two an three this week in the Pack win over the Cardinals. Boykin caught two passes for a total of seven yards, one of those was for six yards.
2 REC, 7 YDS
Cody Grimm, FS Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Grimm did not accumulate any stats in the Bucs' win over the Raiders, but was able to watch rookie Doug Martin rush for 251 yards and four touchdowns on the Raiders.
DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall, fresh off of being ejected last week, earned four total tackles and one as a solo effort, with two passes defended in the Redskins' loss to the Panthers. At least he got to wear a sweet uniform.
4 TAK, 1 SOLO, 2 PD
Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan again was involved in the run game, rushing once for nine yards. Morgan also caught six passes for 46 yards with a long of 16. Morgan was targeted 12 times and since I didn't watch the game, I couldn't tell you if they were misfires from RGIII or dropped passes by Morgan. If you watched, leave a comment below.
6 REC, 46 YD; 1 RUSH, 9 YDS
Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick was outshined by his brother's twitter rant during the game, requesting a trade...so, is he Mike's agent now? Anyway, the Eagles fell again, this time to the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Foosball, Bobby. Vick completed just 22 of 41 passes for 272 yards and one touchdown and one interception. Vick's interception was costly as it was returned 99-yards for a touchdown in favor of New Orleans, a potential 14-point swing in the game. Vick found DeSean Jackson on a 77-yard touchdown pass following a playaction that the Saints blitzed on, leaving Jackson wide open. Vick was sacked seven times for a loss of 46 yards. Seriously, that Eagles line is absolutely awful. Vick rushed six times for 53 yards, including a long of 15 yards.
22/41, 272 YDS, TD, INT; 6 RUSH, 53 YDS
David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson had no carries on the day, but returned four kicks for 100 yards with a long of 32
4 RET, 100 YDS
Player of the week: Darryl Tapp, for having his priorities straight.
