Former Michigan Athlete of the Week: Stevie Brown

Brown celebrates his first career interception
Believe it or not, Stevie Brown is in his third NFL season and making a few plays.  Brown recorded his first career interception in the fourth quarter of his team's 37-6 drubbing of the Carolina Panthers last week and returned it 44 yards.  He is listed as a second string safety on the New York Giant's depth chart and is apparently getting somewhat comfortable with his new team after spending last year playing for the Indianapolis Colts and his rookie season for the Oakland Raiders.  Brown has five tackles, one pass deflection and one interception through three games this year.  His Giants are 2-1.

Honorable mention:  Tom Brady moved past Joe Montana into 12th place on the NFL's all-time passing list during his team's 31-30 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.  Brady threw for 335 yards and one touchdown in the game, but that didn't stop the Patriots from dropping below .500 for the first time since the opening game of the 2003 season.

  • Brandon Graham still isn't lighting the world on fire, but he is showing some signs of life.  Last week he recorded four tackles and half a sack in an Eagles loss.
  • David Harris is continuing with his tackling machine like ways this season and tallied nine in the New York Jets overtime victory in Miami on Sunday.
  • Mario Manningham has 12 receptions for 113 yards through three games; he is the 49ers third leading receiver behind Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis.


  1. I see what you did there and I'm happy for the kid, but you're being generous with this reward this week. Imo.

  2. I hate how the media continues to slob on Randy Moss' knob when the hero of last year's Super Bowl is outperforming him.

  3. Randy Moss is Randy Moss... brett Favre syndrome. Welcome to ESPN reporting.

    I still wish Manningham stayed with the Giants.
