Zips in the NFL

Recommended Posts

UGIII looked really good last night. He got in on D about mid 3rd quarter until the end of the game.  INT at the goal line on a 2pt conversion, strip sack, and another sack. Another QB pressure/hit as well. I must've missed the 2nd sack. Not a single "negative" play (missed tackle, beat in coverage, etc). Pretty pumped for him..

 

I also didn't see MAC DPOY Sutton Smith on the field at all.

Don’t tell the rest of the NFL about the MAC – In 2018 there were 71 players from the MAC conference in the NFL. You might not be shocked to find out that the Steelers led the way with 8 players. The Steelers have shown an affinity to finding productive players from this conference and this game those players made their presence known. A quick list of the MAC guys making plays include the aforementioned Gilbert and Spillane along with Ola Adeniyi (3 tackles, couple of pressures), T. Jones (2 tackles, .5 sack) , Trevon Mathis (4 tackles) and Tuzar Skipper (2 tackles, 1 sack). And don’t forget about Rosie Nix, Ben Roethlisberger, Sutton Smith, Casey Sales, Diontae Johnson, and Chukwuma Okorafor also on the roster. And just for the record, if you don’t watch the MAC games regularly, check them out. They usually play on Saturday but starting in November they play throughout the week from Tuesday through Thursday as well giving us quality football to watch all week.

Robert...Stein?? IIRC, he wasn't even a better kicker than his sibling, who was also a MAC kicker.

I believe Stein holds the Zips record for points scored. Robert was fairly consistent with FGs within his range. At one point, he lost the starting job but earned it back and was really solid after that point. I am pretty sure he let the other other kid keep his scholarship, too.

^^They whiffed on Dwight Smith.

They sure did. I'm still mad that he wasn't the Super Bowl MVP for the Buccaneers that year. I mean, who else has ever had two interception returns for a TD in a Super Bowl?

I don't think anyone would argue against "solid." But top 10 player ever?

Me too Blue.  The TV age took that one away, "needing" to be able to name an MVP before the end of the telecast, they rushed it and missed the second INT.  He was ROBBED!  He's still the MVP as far as I am/was concerned.

I see that Kyron Brown is still listed as inactive by the Jets. Is this still the quad injury? It seemed like it was only going to be a few weeks of missed time when it happened last season.

I would have thought Trevor Brown, Alvin Davis and Lako would have received some sort of camp invite by now?

JoJo Natson out for the year with a Torn ACL.

 

Bummer. Explosive little guy that was going to be a nice weapon for the Browns. Stefanski sounds genuinely disappointed in this news.

So, do we expect to see any former Zips actually take the field in an NFL stadium this weekend?
