Cats in the NFL Review: Thanks, No Thanks Mike Edwards

Tampa Bay Times

Tampa Bay Times

Mike Edwards is easily the top story as far as former Cats in the NFL go.

Edwards has had an up and down 2020, with the muffed kick in Week 1, to this first career interception in Week 3, and the inconsistent playing time. Well, on Sunday he might have earned himself a little more clock after picking off Aaron Rodgers in the second quarter on a tip drill, returning it all the way to the two-yard line to help ignite a 38-0 run that gave Tampa Bay the victory over Green Bay on Sunday.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for Mike Edwards, but did it have to come against the Packers? Literally any other team, but spare mine, please!

The Cincinnati, OH product picked off Tom Brady in training camp this year as well; how many people can say they’ve picked off those two guys? Let alone in the span of a couple of months? Good on you, Mike Edwards. Hopefully, this will lead to more playing time for the former’ Cat on that loaded Tampa Bay defense.

Za’Darius Smith

It was a quiet day for Big Z as he only assisted on one tackle, and got a single hit on Brady in the 38-10 loss. I’m tired of talking about this game. Hopefully the Packers can just R-E-L-A-X and get back to it next week against the one-win Houston Texans.

Danny Trevathan

Keeping things in the NFC North, are the Chicago Bears…good? Somehow someway the Bears have found themselves sitting at 5-1 and leading the division. I guess it makes sense; they’ve got all the pieces on defense and their offense isn’t that bad? Jimmy Graham and Allen Robinson have been obvious pluses for the Bears, now they’ve got a Super Bowl MVP quarterback and David Montgomery is starting to put it together a little bit, so maybe they are a real threat. They’re certainly in good shape to make the playoffs, even as a wild card team at worst.

In their 23-16 victory over the Panthers, Danny Trevathan produced 10 tackles.

Benny Snell Jr.

Benny Snell is back on the board! In the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 38-7 victory over the Cleveland Browns, Benny Snell found his way into the endzone for the first time this season.

Bud Dupree

I know I’ve been big on Bud Dupree all year, but he had quite possibly his best game this season against the Browns. Dupree had two sacks and four tackles on Sunday. Just watch this montage to see how dominant he was… The Steelers are solidifying themselves as a top-five team in this league.

Randall Cobb

The Texans played quite possibly the best game of the 2020 season thus far, and against another top-five team in the NFL team too. The Texans lost to the 5-0 Tennesse Titans in overtime,  42-36, after a questionable decision to go for two up by seven late in the fourth. Though I didn’t mind the decision, it could have cost the Texans their second win on the year. Randall Cobb was relatively quiet, only getting three catches for 17 yards on four targets, but he did find his way into the endzone. Then, to send us in a time machine to 2010, he threw a pass that ended up falling incomplete.

Lonnie Johnson

Not a banner day for defense in the Music City, and the same is true for Lonnie Johnson. He ended the day with five tackles, but he played less than 50% of the snaps for the Houston Texans.

Lynn Bowden

I tell you what, I’m all on the Fins train. They lead the AFC East right now AND they’re going to start Tua Tagovailoa off the bye? Another Wild Card spot? I’m all in on seeing the Miami Dolphins in the playoff hunt deep into 2020. It’s certainly not the craziest thing in the world. However, it was a quiet day for Lynn Bowden, who saw five snaps but recorded no stats from in the 24-0 victory over the Jets.

Avery Williamson

Every week I do this, and every week I say the same thing. The Jets might be the worst football team I’ve ever watched, and I genuinely mean that. Worse than the ’17 Browns, the ’08 Lions, literally any team you can think of, the Jets are worse. They are 0-5 this season, but to make matters worse, they haven’t covered the spread ONCE. How Adam Gase still has a job after being shutout by the Dolphins, BLOWS MY MIND.

Someone save Avery because he led the Jets with 11 tackles. Just pitiful, I feel awful for him.

Corey Peters

Corey Peters wrapped things up for us on Monday Night with the obliteration of the Dallas Cowboys. The Arizona Cardinals won 38-10, but Peters continues to see his usage go down. Despite that, Peters got in the backfield for a TFL and deflected a pass in the victory.

    I’m afraid Bowden is going to bite the dust. NFL teams do not have the patience for a player to develop.
