Mizzou in the NFL: Week 7 Willy Mo is Always Ready, Justin is still Godzilla and SHELDON RICHARDSON

Ron Antonelli

"Richardson, you don't do anything!" "OH DON'T I?!"

These injuries can end anytime now, that'd be great. The amount of injuries to major players around the league this year is absolutely LUDICROUS. Lots of ACLs, lots of concussions, and former Tigers aren't immune either. Let's stop getting hurt, k? K.

 

William Moore, Atlanta Falcons

There's hope yet for a salvaged season in Atlanta. The Falcons beat the Buccaneers 31-23, and Willy Mo put up a MONSTER game. Seven tackles, two passes defensed, and a forced fumble that prevented the Bucs from mounting any kind of comeback. The Falcons are 2-4 and three games behind the Saints in the division, so the season isn't a loss quite yet. If Willy can keep playing like this, the defense should be able to do its part to turn things around.

 

Justin Smith, San Francisco 49ers

Dare I say, Justin Smith had a "Michael Sam-esque" game?! Ok, so maybe that comparison is a little far-fetched... But Justin picked up two big sacks in the Niners' convincing 31-17 win over the Titans. When he's on, he's nearly unblockable, and we all know it's not his speed that makes him so hard to stop. He's just a brute. I pity the fool who has to get in his way on Sundays, and it sure looks like Justin got the best of his matchup this week. Pure dominance.

 

Sheldon Richardson, New York Jets

Looks like ol' Sheldon got the best of Tom Brady and his Patriots this week, winning 30-27 and backing up his trash talk in the process. That win was great, and Sheldon's play isn't going unnoticed. As we've said before, he's a legit candidate for Rookie of the Year, and the recommendations are coming in left and right.

Colin Brown, Buffalo Bills

The Bills are really just one of those tough, scrappy teams you don't want on your schedule. They beat the Dolphins this week 23-21 and made the AFC East a little more interesting. Colin has been blocking for quite a few different QBs this season, but he's doing a pretty good job on a front that makes quite a bit of room for a solid running attack.

(EDIT: Apparently Colin was cut this last week. That's what I get for not watching the Bills game this week...)

 

Andrew Gachkar, San Diego Chargers

Gachkar has seen a significant jump in playing time, even starting for the Chargers in these last two weeks. He's doing a pretty good job making the most of his playing time, as he racked up five tackles in a 24-6 win over the lowly Jaguars. Hope to see more of him, I think once he breaks that playing time barrier he'll be here to stay.

 

Beau Brinkley, Tennessee Titans

Bad loss for the Titans. Beau snapped in that loss. Beau's fault. Just kidding.
