When we remember it, we like to take a while out of the week to look at what former rebels are doing in the NFL. While we're not going to spend time talking to you about a player who played three snaps, we want to provide brief capsules of the impact players had on their team on the preceding Sunday. As always, we'll figure out ways to spruce this up as the season goes on, but for now, here it is in the raw, naked and unashamed.
Eli Manning - The best Manning in the league this season hasn't started his season all that well. The GMen won over St. Louis, with Eli putting up decent-ish numbers (18 of 29, 200 yards, 2 touchdowns and a pick), but through two weeks, Eli has struggled. His passer rating as of right now is 82.1, putting him in the bottom half of the league between Colt McCoy and Tavarus Jackson. Sheesh. They get the Eagles next so, umm, good luck Eli!
Dexter McCluster - While we don't wish injuries on anyone, Jamaal Charles' ACL tear has allowed the Lil' Bastid to get the ball twelve times. Dex produced 51 yards on the ground off of eight carries but had four catches yield just negative two yards. He'll be heavily involved in the running back rotation moving forward, and it should be interesting to see whether he can help the Chiefs at all. They sure need it, having just lost 48-3 to the Detroit Lions.
