Avant had 5 catches for 87 yards and 1 touchdown while his Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 26-16.

Honorable mention: Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Leon Hall had 4 tackles, 1 interception, and 3 pass breakups in a 34-30 victory over the Green Bay Packers. New York Jets linebacker David Harris had 7 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 1 quarterback hurry in a 27-20 victory over Buffalo. Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson had 1 carry for -2 yards and 2 kickoff returns for 54 yards in a 45-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.


  1. Avant is loved and respected as a solid football player in Philly.

  2. Interesting, the NFL career trajectories of Mr. Avant, Mr. Breaston, and Mr. Edwards per the photo above.

  3. Remember the four weeks in August of 2004 when we were all excited about Matt Gutierrez being the future of the program? His injury will always be one of the program's big "what if" questions.

    1. Yea a huge what if. It's not like the guy that replaced him was a 4 year starter. Who happened to lead us to the Rose Bowl his freshman year.
