    Name: Jerry Hughes

    Position: Defensive end

    Years Played at TCU: 2006-09

    Current Team: Indianapolis Colts

    Outcome of game: San Diego Chargers 36, Indianapolis Colts 14

    Analysis: For the second straight week, Hughes did not make much of an impact, as he was unable to record any tackles. The Colts, however, were attempting to come back during most of the second half and could not afford to rest their starters. Hughes should see more time going forward once Indianapolis’ offense gets its swagger back.

    Name: Drew Coleman

    Position: Cornerback

    Years Played at TCU: 2004-05

    Current Team: New York Jets

    Outcome of game: Jets 26, Bengals 10

    Stats: Three tackles

    Analysis: Coleman was in on just three tackles in the Jets’ victory. Coleman and the Jets secondary, however, held the Bengals passing attack to a mere 117 yards. The Jets defense also shut down Terrell Owens, one of the league’s best receivers this season. Owens, who has 65 receptions for 914 yards and eight touchdowns on the year, was held to three catches for 17 yards. Next week, Coleman and the defense will need to be sharp to stop Tom Brady and the red-hot New England Patriots offense.

    Name: David Hawthorne

    Position: Linebacker

    Years Played at TCU: 2004-07

    Current Team: Seattle Seahawks

    Outcome of game: Kansas City Chiefs 42, Seattle Seahawks 24

    Stats: 13 tackles, one tackle for loss

    Analysis: Hawthorne led the Seahawks defense with 13 tackles in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. Seattle’s defense was on its heels throughout the game, as Kansas City was able to pass for 233 yards while rushing for 270. The Seahawks had no answer for Jamaal Charles, who torched them for 173 rushing yards and a touchdown. Next week, when the Seahawks take on the Carolina Panthers, Hawthorne and the Seattle defense will have to step up to stop running backs Jonathan Stewart and Mike Goodson, who lead Carolina’s offensive attack.

    Name: Aaron Brown

    Position: Running back

    Years Played at TCU: 2005-08

    Current Team: Detroit Lions

    Outcome of game: New England Patriots 45, Detroit Lions 24

    Stats: 13 carries for 36 yards, four

    receptions for 29 yards

    Analysis: Brown had a team-high 13 carries in Thursday’s loss to the Patriots. With Jahvid Best still hampered by toe issues, Brown saw his most extensive action this season against New England. On Thursday, Maurice Morris was the Lions’ primary back, as he carried the ball nine times for 55 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but going forward, Brown’s speed could earn him a decent share of the touches on Detroit’s offense.

    Name: Daryl Washington

    Position: Linebacker

    Years Played at TCU: 2006-09

    Current Team: Arizona Cardinals

    Outcome of game: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Monday night was after deadline

    Analysis: As the Cardinals take on the 49ers on Monday Night Football, it will be up to the Cardinals defense to stop former Heisman Trophy-winner Troy Smith and the 49ers offense. In a wide open divisional race, a win here would put either team in a position to be in the hunt for the playoffs. Washington may not see much time this week, but when he does, look for him to make an impact.

    Name: LaDainian Tomlinson

    Position: Running back

    Years Played at TCU: 1997-2000

    Current Team: New York Jets

    Outcome of game: New York Jets 26, Cincinnati Bengals 10

    Stats: 13 carries for 49 yards, two receptions for 14 yards

    · Carries &- 13

    · Rushing Yards &- 49

    · Catches &- Two

    · Receiving Yards – 14

    Analysis: Tomlinson was held to just 63 total yards 8212; 49 rushing and 14 receiving 8212; in Thursday’s victory over the Bengals. Not only was he held to one of his lowest yardage totals of the season, but he was also held out of the end zone for the fifth straight game. The Jets got control of the game early in the second half and used Shonn Greene, who had 70 yards on 18 carries, as the closer. Tomlinson figures to get a few more touches next week against New England.
