Today was the opening Sunday for the NFL, and with that, the opening day for a lot of former Cats. While the games have yet to all be played, there have been some good contributions from a couple recent graduates.
-Steve Johnson was the leading receiver today for the Buffalo Bills, catching three passes for forty yards and no touchdowns. Stevie has been one of my favorites since his heroics in the Louisville game, so it’s great to see him beginning his starting receiver career off right.
-Myron Pryor had two tackles and half a sack in the New England Patriots win over the Bengals. Rumor is going around that Randy Moss went off during the press conference, and we can only assume it’s because he’s afraid Myron Pryor will be after his job soon. Which he will.
–Corey Peters was also credited with two tackles, one solo, in the Falcons losing effort against the Steelers. He didn’t get a chance to sack Ben Roethlisberger, but to be fair, it’s hard to sack Big Ben outside of a bar bathroom.
-Fresh off making the Packers, Tim Masthay booted his first punt for 41 yards. I have a few random personal connections with Tim, and because of this, have always rooted for his success a little harder than the other Cats out there.
That’s it so far today, but at least tune in Monday night to see if John Conner kills anyone on the Ravens.
