Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Random thought crossed into my head. I'd like to see opinions on this. We know that Tom Brady is moderately successful, as is some octogenarian named Charles Woodson. So who takes bronze? Graham? Harris? Woodley? Hall? Long? Martin? We have two current HOFers and then a list of guys I'd consider pretty good, but not greats.
What says you people?
• Green Bay Packers' linebacker Jake Ryan recorded 10 tackles, including six solo tackles, in the Packers' loss to the Carolina Panthers. The 10 tackles set a career high for Ryan, who is in his rookie season with Green Bay. In five previous games, he had recorded just four total tackles.
• Carolina Panthers' wide receiver Devin Funchess turned in his best game as a professional. He set a season high in receiving yards, receptions and touchdowns. In the contest, he caught three passes for 71 yards and a touchdown, including a 52-yard catch that led to a Carolina touchdown.
• Oakland Raiders' free safety Charles Woodson recorded eight tackles, seven of which were solo, in the Raiders' 38-35 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Woodson's eight tackles set a new season high.
• Philadelphia Eagles' linebacker Brandon Graham recorded seven tackles, all that were solo, and two sacks in the Eagles' 33-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. His seven tackles matched a season high that he set at Washington on Oct. 4.
• Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots sit at 8-0 this season following a victory over the Washington Redskins. Brady threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-10 win. Brady registered his eighth straight game with two or more touchdown passes.
• New York Jets' linebacker David Harris totaled four tackles, including three solo, in the Jets' 28-23 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jets' defense allowed just 98 total rushing yards.

Gregg Wiliams needs to be banned, his teams always are full of cheap shots. Today after going at Teddy Bridgewater's knees, his team gave him a concussion. Completely cheap shot that was completely uncalled for. After the hit, Teddy briefly lost consciousness.
The play was flagged, but I think that significant suspensions are in order.
Mr. Incredible Charles Woodson
