Stanford in the NFL: Week 2 Rookie Report

New, 1 comment

How did NFL rookies from Stanford perform this week?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

With another week of professional football in the books, it is time for the weekly Rookie Report. There were only three Stanford rookies in action in week two, but hopefully Jordan Richards, Andrus Peat, and Alex Carter can soon debut their skills.

Henry Anderson

In other stunning upset the Colts lose to the Jets. Andrew Luck was god awful, throwing 3 picks and only throwing for 1 touchdown. Henry Anderson had another great game for the Colts defense. Totaling 5 tackles 2 of which were for loses. Monday night was a milestone for Anderson because it was the night he recorded his first sack of his career. There really wasn't a bright spot for the Colts defense, but Henry Anderson is a star in the making.

David Parry

Week 2 was a little bit better for David Parry. He recorded only 3 tackles, but it is better than his previous high of 1. Perry was a part of this demoralizing loss and the defense gave up 100 yards on the ground. But it wasn't all bad for Parry, he recorded his first tackle for lose and almost recovered a decisive Bilal Powell fumble. Maybe the tide will turn for the Colts, David Parry is doing all the right things and he has gotten better from week 1 to week 2. Look for his stats to get even better next week as the Colts take on the Titans.

Ty Montgomery

In a Sunday night thriller, Ty Montgomery finally played his natural position of wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers. Montgomery was not used as the punt returner or the kickoff specialist like he was in week one. This week he was used in the pass attack against the staunch defense of Seattle. Montgomery was the 2nd leading receiver for the Packers with 37 yards on 4 receptions. But what is more impressive is that he brought in all of the balls that were targeted for him. As I said in the last article be prepared to see Montgomery in more of Green Bay's offense.

Bonus Report

Trent Murphy

Not everyone can watch the Redskins play football, but I have the displeasure of seeing them play every week. This week was not so bad because it looked like they actually knew how to play football. A big part of that was Trent Murphy. Murphy was great against the Rams offensive line this week. He was beating his man regularly and stuffing the run. It is a tall task to stop Tavon Austin and Tre Mason, but the Redskin's defense only let up 64 yards on the ground. Trent Murphy is coming into his own as a solid starter for the Redskins.
