Griz In The Pros Week 3 Roundup

Sunday’s NFL action provided a mixed bag of results for the 7 former Montana Grizzlies currently playing in the league.

All 7 players suited up (only 46 of the 53 players per roster can suit up each week). And all 7 players got into their respective games.

We’ll start with the Miami Dolphins, whose 0-3 start has head coach Tony Sparano in danger of losing his job. Miami’s latest setback was to the Cleveland Browns 17-16.

In that contest, safety Jimmy Wilson finished with 1 tackle, 1 pass defensed, and his first career interception. Unfortunately, the photo to the left also shows Wilson giving up the game-winning touchdown to Cleveland’s Mohamed Massaquoi with just 43 seconds remaining.

Also in that game, kicker Dan Carpenter was 1 for 1 on extra point kicks, and 3 for 4 on field goals. Carpenter nailed kicks from 23, 38 and 41 yards, and was wide left on a 51-yard attempt. Running back Lex Hilliard finished with 1 carry for 4 yards.

The Atlanta Falcons continued their puzzling start to the 2011 season. The Dirty Birds were the NFC’s best team during the regular season a year ago, but now sit at just 1-2 following a 16-13 loss to Tampa Bay. Defensive end Kroy Biermann registered 1 tackle, 1 assist and 1 quarterback hit defensively, while safety Shann Schillinger made 1 tackle on special teams.

On the opposite side of the coin are the Tennessee Titans. The Titans weren’t “supposed” to be a good team this year, yet they sit at 2-1 after their 17-14 win over the Denver Broncos. Wide receiver and returner Marc Mariani finished with 1 reception for 4 yards, and returned 4 punts for 21 yards. Oddly enough, the Titans are the only team in the NFL that hasn’t returned a kickoff yet. Every kickoff Mariani has fielded has resulted in a touchback.

Finally, safety Colt Anderson played for the Philadelphia Eagles against the New York Giants, but didn’t register any official statistics. To make things worse, the Eagles fell to 1-2 after a 29-16 loss.
