Adam Jones Cornerback
Class of 2004
Between running back punts negated by penalties and chasing Jerry Porter all over the Coliseum, Pac had a busy day. Adam was beaten in the passing game for two scores, while recording two tackles and breaking up a pass. He had consecutive punt returns in the first half of 39 and 82 yards, respectively. The first set up a Tennessee touchdown, and the second was returned for a touchdown. However, a penalty brought the 82-yarder back, and was promptly followed by a Titan safety, providing a 9-point swing the Raiders needed.

Rasheed was the 49ers punt returner on Sunday, gaining 18 yards on four returns, before nearly coughing one up. Thus far in limited action, Rasheed has 50 return yards. Though it hasn't been officially announced, it is very likely that Rasheed is San Francisco's #2 quarterback heading into the Giants game, due to injuries and trades.

Next Week: NEW YORK GIANTS

Corey McIntyre Fullback

Corey got his first kick return Sunday and brought it up 16 yards to give the Browns hope on their last drive of their loss. C-Mac did not record any stops on special teams. Of note, the Browns used an ex-quarterback (Kent State's Josh Cribbs) and an ex-fullback (McIntyre) in the kick return game.
