Line up, alumni, it's time for your weekly inspection.
Eli, whoa, what in the hell happened to you?
P-Willie, you continue to make us cry with joy with every bone-snapping tackle.
Mike Wallace, you sir, would be a worthy fantasy football addition for nearly any team. Could you be ramping up for a possible rookie of the year award?
Mo' info after the jump.
Derrick Burgess, DE, New England Patriots: victorious over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 35-7. Notched two tackles, a sack and forced a fumble against the hapless Bucs. It was good to see Burgess play up to his potential at the highest level.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, New England Patriots: victorious over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 35-7. Carried the ball seven times for six yards. The 0.9 ypc rate is slightly lower than last week's 9.6. Good to see BJGE continuing to get a chance to prove himself, however.
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants: defeated by the Arizona Cardinals, 24-17. Our fearless #10 passed for 243 yards with one TD and three INTs. Ever since his run in with the ever lethal plantar fasciitis, he hasn't been the same.
Ashlee Palmer, LB, Buffalo Bills: victorious over the Carolina Panthers, 20-9. Grabbed two tackles bringing his season total to 14. When Palmer makes multiple tackles in a game, the Bills are 2-1.
Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: victorious over Brett Favre's old ass and the Minnesota Vikings, 27-17. Brought in three passes for 72 yards and carried the ball twice for 19 yards. Wallace is averaging 18 yards per catch and roughly 65 yards per game. He could become more of a target in the second half of the season and make it to 1,000 yards.
Patrick Willis, LB, San Francisco 49ers: defeated by the Houston Texans, 24-21. Collected 10 tackles and defended one pass against the Texans. SEC Defensive POY's Willis and Demeco Ryans went head-to-head with Willis having a four tackle edge against the 'Bama alum.
The old balls Rebel of the Week goes to Mike Wallace. He is becoming a big play threat for the Steelers, and they aren't hesitating to give him chances every week.
