Last week former UNC Football line backer Zack Brown had one heck of a week, with eight tackles and a pair of sacks versus the Steelers in a tight win. A week later, while his Tennessee Titans lost to the Houston Texans in overtime, the second year pro did not disappoint once again, as he had a dozen tackles, all but one solos.
Speaking of linebackers that once used to be in the Carolina Football program, let’s check out Bruce Carter, who a week ago had nine tackles and a sack as his Cowboys defeated divisional foe Giants. In week two, the third year pro, had six tackles (one for loss of yards) as well as a sack and deflected a pass. Unfortunately Big D went down to Kansas City.
On the defensive line it’s Julius Peppers, who last week had no tackle for his Bears versus the Bengals. This week, the former Tar Heel stand out had one tackle as Chicago is now 2 and 0 on the season after defeating Minnesota. While the performance is below what most would expect from the 12 year pro, to be fair rotowire.com said that the DT had an “illness” before the game.
On the offensive side of the ball, Greg Little had four receptions in week one, for 26 yards, while being targeted 10 times in the game. This week the former UNC Football wide out had once again four catches for 33 yards, but was amazingly targeted a dozen time by his QB. The third year pro has yet to find the end zone this season, while his team, the Cleveland Brown, have yet to win a game.
Come back later for more updates about players that once used to call Kenan Stadium their home and now are playing on Sunday.
