This is not the type of list you would want your favorite player to be "honorably mentioned" on.
Last year, McCourty played like a savvy, seasoned veteran. Now, in his sophomore year, McCourty is playing like a rookie.
McCourty has been targeted 36 times this season and is second on the Patriots in tackles, behind only Jerod Mayo. He's a major reason why the Patriots' defense has been so disappointing as a whole this year.
The Vikings didn't give up a whole lot for McNabb, but McNabb has given them a whole lot less. Three weeks into the season, his team is 0-3, and McNabb has thrown for a combined 478 yards, two touchdowns, an interception, and lost a fumble.
It's kind of ridiculous, but at the same time interesting how whenever McNabb leaves somewhere, good things happen. He left Philly and Michael Vick happened. He left Washington and Washington is now tied for first in the division. Maybe the Vikings acquired him just to get rid of him (progressive thinking here).
Is it time for Tim Tebow in Denver? The Broncos are 1-2 with Orton under center this year, and billboards are popping up around Denver calling for the end of the Orton era. But, of course, the Broncos' failures can't all be Orton's fault. This is Denver remember? That means we can just blame this on Josh McDaniels!
Reggie Bush, Antonio Gates, Shonn Greene, Frank Gore, Mike Williams (Tampa Bay), Albert Haynesworth, Michael Crabtree, Dwayne Bowe, Matt Ryan, Nnamdi Asomugha, Philip Rivers, and Dallas Clark.
