One game remaining… and we’ll have a Hokie with a super bowl ring when it’s all over!

And we are now down to 6 Hokies that could possibly get a super bowl ring.

Post Season schedule has been set, new page has been added to the menu structure for 2013 Post Season play. Ten Hokies still in the running for a super bowl ring. I’m expecting to start seeing players signed to squads now that most teams years are over. I’ll create a new page for 2014 Pre Season and list everyone that is signed from now until start of next year on that page when/if anyone is signed.

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Shayne Graham back in the dance and steps right up and hits 2 – 2 on field goals. Didn’t do any kick offs so maybe they’ll keep him around?? Been in the league so long that I sort of doubt it… lots of cheaper options out there. Hate to see Vick put in a game just to take two snaps and -2 yards rushing. Boykin with a touchdown but catching 5 of 13 balls thrown your way isn’t all that great.

James Anderson and Boykin both with great performances on the day. Anderson had 11 tackles in the Bears victory over Cleveland and Boykin with 6 receptions for 83 yards in the Packers win over Dallas. Appears the Hokie Pros were a little chippy yesterday as well as multiple players had taunting penalties and a few personal fouls. Both Danny Coale and Shayne Graham had tryouts over the past week. Coale was looked at by the Jets and Shayne kicked for the Lions. Neither was picked up at this time.

FIgure one of these days I’ll check the box scores and Ryan Williams will actually be allowed to try to play. Sure wish he had been traded. Danny Coale and Shayne Graham both keep getting invited to try out with teams, just not quite getting signed. Can understand Shayne, after 13 years his salary has got to be up there.

Andre Smith picked up by the Browns after being waived by Cowboys. Did play in the game this weekend.

Becton was put back on the practice squad with the Chargers. Boykin with another touchdown, Royal with nearly 100 yards, Tyrod getting quite a few plays with Baltimore. Worilds was listed with 6 QB hurries in their win over the Browns. Didn’t see the game but sounds like he was back there quite a bit.

Becton was waived by the Chargers yesterday. Bruce Taylor on the practice squad with the Bengals. Boykin didn’t get the start but had another good day and Carmichael getting his chance in Philly. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll get to see Ryan Williams play a game this year?

David Wilson season is complete. Placed on injured reserve. Roc Carmichael with his first career start with the Eagles. Boykin with another 100+ receiving day. Saw that Danny Coale got another try out, this time with the Seahawks. Good that teams see something to at least bring him in, just wish he could sign and get a chance.

The great performance by Foles probably has put Vick on the bench the rest of the season pending an injury. Danny Coale got another tryout, this time with the Giants. At least teams are taking a look at him. Hopefully he’ll get picked up. David Wilson scheduled to have an MRI this week to determine if his season is over.

Another good showing by Boykin with 89 yards on the night and only missing one of 6 throws his way. Did see that Danny Coale had a workout with the Bears. Word is that anyone signed will happen on Monday. Fingers crossed that Coale gets another shot. With trade deadline quickly approaching, we can only hope that Ryan Williams gets a shot at another location as well.

Finally… Boykin gets a chance and arrives with 103 yards and his first TD as a professional in the regular season. No more action for Hokies this week as both Hosley and Wilson are out for Monday Night.

Bruce Taylor released from Cardinals practice squad. Boykin finally got some meaningful playing time but was only able to pull in one reception from the six thrown his way. Ryan Williams remains inactive for the season. David Wilson season and some say career in jeopardy with neck injury. Seeking second opinion today (14th).

Missed Bruce Taylor signing to the practice squad with Arizona back on the 24th of Sept. Both Vick and Wilson go down with injuries early in the game. Was looking forward to watching them. Honestly thought we would have both Coale and Grimm get another shot.

Becton to the Chargers active roster but didn’t play yesterday. Wilson didn’t start for the Giants but did get the majority of the carries in their loss. Ryan Williams is sits the bench for the fourth straight game. Worilds career is in trouble with the Steelers. Good to see Roc getting a chance in Philly. Still hoping Danny Coale will catch a break with another team.

Unfortunately, lots of Hokies going the wrong way. Graham released by the Steelers since their kicker was feeling better. Duane Brown not active with turf toe, Ryan Williams sitting for the third straight game, Josh Morgan not starting, Andre Smith not active, David Wilson have a pretty bad year so far with 25 carries for 75 yards and two lost fumbles. Nice to see D.Hall with the INT for TD and Chancellor with his second pick.

Vick goes from career day to one of his worst. Only credited with 2 INT’s but could have been quite a few more. Nice to see Carmichael get a chance in Philly (although not active for this game) and Danny Coale was picked up by the Colts on their Practice Squad.

Wow… if you would have told me that Vick would have a passer rating of 122.4, Throw for 400+ Yds for 2 TD’s and run for another, no way the Eagles lose. Updated all action with exception of Seahawks. Will get that updated tomorrow night. Great to see Shayne Graham get yet another extension of his career with the Steelers!

All action from first week has been added to the site. Overall we had 11 Starters, 4 that Played, 1 that didn’t play (Tyrod), 1 Not Active, 1 on Injured Reserve and 5 Practice Squad players. Still hoping that we see a couple more players get signed in the coming weeks. Not sure what will happen with David Wilson. Not looking good in NY.

Rough day for the Hokies all around. Following players were cut: Bruce Taylor, Rashad Carmichael, Shayne Graham, Vinston Painter, Nick Becton, Danny Coale, Corey Fuller, Cody Grimm, and Jeff King’s season comes to an end without playing a snap by being placed on IR.

All teams were in action last night so everyone’s status has been updated. As expected Whitley received an injury settlement from the eagles. Will probably wait until Sunday to do updates on the cuts/releases. Will put up the 2013 Regular Season tab after the dust settles a bit and we have some practice squad info.

Whitely was waived (injured) by the Eagles and Tweedy was waived by the Giants.

Good news is that Ryan Williams back on the field, 2 carries for 10 years (5 per) and a reception. Bad news Eddie Whitley injured leg, haven’t found results yet but looks like knee injury. Also no receptions for Coale and Bruce Taylor didn’t play for the Bengals. Expect to see see Taylor cut in next episode of Hard Knocks. Hopefully he’ll get picked up on Practice Squad or another team gives him a chance.
