Another week is almost in the books and we saw some of those week 1 duds turn into week 2 studs. A few flex guys I liked this week had good days (Buckhalter & Harvin) and a few flex guys I liked had brutal days (Meachem & Gage). Now before another Bills player house gets robbed, lets get to week 2 studs and duds.
Stud-Matt Schaub: 25-39, 357 YDS, 4 TD
Welcome to the dance Matt Schaub. After a tough opening week, Schaub’s high octane offence got going (except Steve Slaton-keep reading).
Dud-Tony Romo: 13-29, 127 YDS, TD, 3 INT
Romo’s brutal primetime performance may have wiped that “I’m rich! Look what I built!” smirk off the face of Jerry Jones.
Flex Stud-Trent Edwards: 21-31, 230 YDS, 2 TD, INT
Edwards gave Bills fans a small preview of what can happen if he takes some shots to Evans and TO.
Flex Dud-JaMarcus Russell: 7-24, 109 YDS
7 completions, 11 first downs, 166 total yards and the Raiders still win. Sometimes life isn’t fair, is it Todd Haley.
Stud-Chris Johnson: 16-197 YDS, 2 TD, 9 REC-87 YDS, TD
Johnson found the end zone 3 times from long range-57, 69 and 91 yards.
Dud-Steve Slaton: 17-34 YDS
If you take away Slaton’s 12 yard run, he ran 16 times for 22 yards. Yuck.
Flex Stud-Fred Jackson: 28-163 YDS, 6 REC-25 YDS
Marshawn Lynch returns week 4…what will the Bills do?
Flex Dud-Cadillac Williams: 7-9 YDS
Although he caught a TD pass, this Cadillac looked like it needed to be taken to the junk yard.
Stud-Andre Johnson: 10-149 YDS, 2 TD
After a 4-catch performance in week 1, Johnson proved his worth in week 2 with a dominating show.
Dud-Greg Jennings: 0 catches
Jennings went over 100 yards with a score in week 1 but did nothing vs. the Bengals.
Flex Stud-Mario Manningham: 10-150 YDS, TD
Honourable mention goes to Manningham’s teammate Steve Smith.
Flex Dud-Patrick Crayton: 1-4 YDS
In the movie Major League, play-by-play man Harry Doyle recaps a game saying “That’s all we got, one goddamn hit”. After his colour man reminds him he can’t say “goddamn” on the air, Doyle then says “don’t worry, nobody is listening anyway”. Well if Doyle was calling the Giants-Cowboys game, I envision the exchange sounding like this:
Doyle: “That’s all Crayton got, one goddamn catch!”
Colour man: “You can’t say goddamn on the air”
Doyle: “Don’t worry, nobody’s listening because there are 105,000 people here”
Stud-Kellen Winslow 7-90 YDS, TD
When Byron Leftwich looks good (which is rare) it’s usually Winslow catching the ball.
Dud-Zach Miller (OAK) : 0 catches
Nice Greg Jennings impression, Zach.
Stud: Broncos- 6 PTS allowed, INT, 4 sacks(all from Elvis Dumervil), FF
Dud: Titans-no sacks, no INT, 34 PTS allowed
