#88 Anthony Becht Tight End
Class of 1999
The Bucs offense appeared inept against the Giants in a losing effort. Tampa Bay managed just 40 yards rushing on the afternoon. Anthony caught two passes for 16 yards, but was also guilty of a fumble and an offensive pass interference penalty in the game.

#10 Marc Bulger Quarterback
Class of 1999
Bulger was on fire Sunday, but the defense let the Rams down in a 14-point loss to the Chargers. After going just 6 of 11 for 67 yards in the first half, Marc lit it up in the last two quarters. During the second half, he completed 21 of 29 passes for 260 yards, including touchdowns to Shaun McDonald and Kevin Curtis. With 12 touchdowns and just one interception, Bulger trails only Peyton Manning for the NFL lead in passing efficiency.

# 15 Chris Henry Wide Receiver
Class of 2004
In his first game back from suspension, Chris reminded folks why the Bengals keep giving him chances. The second year player caught five passes for 81 yards, including a 55-yard bomb for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Despite playing in just four games thus far this season, Chris has three touchdowns and is averaging 16.1 yards per reception - both good enough for second on the team.

#32 Adam Jones Cornerback
Class of 2004
Pac Man came back from the bye week in a big way. The self-proclaimed "thug" filled the stat sheet in the win over the Texans. Jones had seven tackles, a pass breakup, and an interception which he returned 21 yards. In addition, Pac returned three punts for 59 yards, including a scintillating 55-yarder for a score that put the Titans up 28-10.

#84 Jerry Porter Wide Receiver
Class of 1999
Playing for the first time this year after disputes with management, Jerry caught just one pass for 19 yards in the Raiders' win over the Steelers. Despite those numbers, Porter still accounted for 37% of Oakland's pathetic passing offense. Just win, baby. Even if it's ugly.
This Week: W, 20-13 Pittsburgh Record: 2-5
Next Week: @ Seattle

Todd Sauerbrun Punter
Class of 1994
No news in the rumor mill regarding Todd Sauerbrun. Apparently those teams needing a mid-season push to get over the hump aren't perusing the list of available punters as their first choice.

#56 Gary Stills Linebacker
Class of 1998

#97 John Thornton Defensive Lineman
Class of 1998
The Cincinnati front line got pounded for 143 rushing yards in a loss to the Falcons. The positive spin is that the backs for the Falcons only averaged 3.0 yards per carry. Containing Michael Vick was another story. In the game, John recorded three tackles and forced a fumble.

#13 Mike Vanderjagt Kicker
Class of 1992
