Week #3 players who should bounce back.
Donovan McNabb – It is time for him to step up or take a seat, the last 2 performances have been anything but good. This is not a should bounce back player this is a must bounce back week for McNabb and the Eagles. The Lion Defense has allowed 505 yards passing in 2 weeks, that should also help McNabb this week.
Peyton Manning – When 312 1 TD 1 Int is a bad game lemme know well for Peyton thats a bad game, look for him to pick apart the Texans Defense. Look for a 300 3 td game from him this week. The Texans rank 21st in the league in passing yards against.
Drew Brees – He went 260 1 TD 1 Int better then his week one performance. Look for a 300 yard 2 TD game vs the Tenessee Titans who rank 20th vs the pass and have given up 515 yards passing this year.
Laurence Maroney – This is another player who needs to have a better week, last week he went for 77 yards. He faces a good Packers Defense this week who rank 13th vs the run. Look for Maroney to have a major improvement over his week 2 reception total of 0. I see him going for 85 yards rushing 4 reception for 25 yards and a TD.
Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister – Like Drew Brees, both Bush and McAllister look to find holes in the defense this week. They will rely on the arm of Brees to help open up the lanes for Deuce to run in and create space needed to free Reggie for a long score.
Bush goes off for 50 rush and 7 receptions for 60 yards and a TD, while McAllister pounds out 85 on the ground and finds paydirt as well.
Ron Curry – After a stunning week 1 performance Curry fell into the black hole, looks like hes back this week and looking for more of what we saw week 1. Facing the Browns Defense who have given up 563 yards passing and 10 TD’s in 2 weeks. I see another 100 yard day and a TD for Curry.
Reggie Wayne – 5 for 70 is not a Reggie Wayne type of performance and he knows it. Look for him to come out hungry this week as the Colts face off against the Texans. Both Wayne and Harrison will be looking for big weeks, I look for Wayne to grab 7 balls for 100 yards and a TD.
Laveranues Coles – Coles was targeted 11 times last week only catching 6 of them. Look for him to see the same or more targets this week, with a much better catch ratio. Even if Clemens start look for Coles to bounce back nicely this week to the tune of 8 receptions for 90 yards and a TD.
Hines Ward – Hines caught 5 balls last week for 55 yards in a Steelers dominated game. The running of FWP should keep the Bills Defense honest all day as Ward looks for holes in the seconday. Look for a balanced rushing attack to set up Hines for a few good looks this week. I see Ward grabbing 7 balls for 75 yards and a TD.
