Frogs in the NFL - Week Five

Week Five has come to a close, and though we bigger things on our mind over in Frog Nation, it's still time to look back on the week that was TCU in the NFL.

Marcus Cannon - OT - Patriots (beat the Broncos 31-21) Manning! Brady! Noodle Arms! Ugg Boots!

Tank Carder - LB - Browns (lost to the Giants 27-41) Congrats to our once and always Rose Bowl hero on getting his first NFL tackle! Here's hoping for many more!

Andy Dalton - QB - Bengals (lost to the Dolphins 13-17) Not the finest performance for Andy and the Bengals, as he was out-dueled by A&M product Ryan Tannehill in South Florida. Dalton was 26/43 for 234 yards, one TD and two picks. He also had four carries for 21 yards, but was sacked three times.

Clint Gresham - LS - Seahawks (beat the Panthers 16-12) this game was ugly. Cam Newton is the embodiment of a sophomore slump.

David Hawthorne - LB - Saints (beat the San Diego 31-24) Hawthorne still isn't back on field for the Saints, who finally broke through with a win and Drew Brees set the consecutive games with a TD pass record.
Jerry Hughes - DE - Colts (beat the Packers 30-27) The game of the weekend was Packers at Colts, as rookie Andrew Luck out-dueled MVP Aaron Rodgers and brought home a win for Coach Pagano who is fighting leukemia. Hughes had a solid game with three tackles, and is playing well not that he's getting to actually play.

Colin Jones - S - Panthers (lost to the Seahawks 12-16) Colin Jones had a solo tackle in the loss.

Jeremy Kerley - WR - Jets (lost to the Texans 17-23) Kerley had five receptions for 94 yards as the last Jet receiver standing. He was targeted nine times by Sanchez, who was surprisingly not awful. Kerley wasn't involved in the return game on Monday night, as Joe McKnight stole the show with a 100 yard TD return.

Marshall Newhouse - OT - Packers (lost to the Colts 27-30) The Indy D was in Rodgers face all day, as he was sacked five times. Newhouse held his own, but good coverage by the Colts secondary didn't help the GB O-Line cause.

Jason Phillips - LB - Panthers (lost to the Seahawks 12-16) Phillips had a solo tackle.

Herb Taylor - OT - Jacksonville (lost to the Bears 3-41) Jacksonville is terrible.

Daryl Washington - LB - Cardinals (lost to the Rams 3-17) The Arizona O-Line would be awful if they had one. Washington had five tackles and a sack, but didn't get much help defensively.

Time for your predictions in the comments... Will Kerley score this week against Indy? Can Dalton beat Weedon in Cleveland and send him to the retirement home? Can we see some Frogs force some turnovers on defense?

Newhouse in for a LONG day down in Houston.

Everyone has off games. The Rooster will be just fine.

Kerley looked great for NYJ. Alarmingly, 14/31 actually does qualify as a decent day for the Sanchize. The Jets are a hot mess.

Washington is a beast.

Kerley would have had 200 yards and 2 TDs if Sanchize could throw. He had to come back for two long balls.

Ironic Note: RG3 was knocked out on the first day of Hate Week.

Carder had a bad play. Jumped offsides on a punt near the end of the game that gave the ball back to the Giants. That'll get you cut real quick.
