Senior Bowl - dont forget - less then 1 hour

Recommended Posts


Here is the website. Not sure how long it takes them to put together the stats.

QB Philip Rivers was the MVP. Greg Jones looked like an animal running the ball. Only had about 5 carries but scored 2 TDs, running over people in the process. He looked like a man playing with boys.

TE Ben Watson looked good. DT Darnell Dockett has a sack and a hurry.

Rivers propels South

North Carolina State quarterback Philip Rivers leads four scoring drives, and FSU's Greg Jones and Darnell Dockett also star as the South knocks off the North 28-10.

MOBILE, Ala. - North Carolina State's Philip Rivers passed for 213 yards and directed all the South's scoring drives in a 28-10 victory over the North in the Senior Bowl on Saturday.

The nation's top-rated passer was the only quarterback who looked as comfortable with relatively unfamiliar players as his own college teammates in the game, an NFL audition for college seniors.

Rivers completed 12 of 19 passes, two for first-quarter touchdowns, to earn Most Valuable Player honors. He played one series in the final three quarters, re-entering the game late in the fourth.

Florida State's Greg Jones added his second touchdown, a 4-yarder, to end the final drive. The 250-pounder showed off his bruising style by breaking several tackles on a 22-yarder and some agility on the next play, cutting back toward the middle for the TD.

He also had a tackle-breaking, 16-yard touchdown in the first quarter and was the South's offensive MVP. Florida State's Darnell Dockett, who set up a touchdown with a fumble recovery, was the team's defensive MVP.

Ohio State receiver Michael Jenkins was picked as the North's offensive MVP after catching seven passes for 69 yards. Ricardo Colclough of Tusculum College claimed defensive honors.

Neither offense looked particularly fluid when Rivers was on the sideline, though Michigan's John Navarre had a 35-yard touchdown pass to Keary Colbert of Southern California in the second quarter on fourth-and-10.

The North's offense had three quarterbacks who combined for nearly 10,000 yards passing in their senior seasons, but never consistently clicked.

The squad lost two fumbles and gained just three yards on 16 rushes.

Navarre was the team's most effective quarterback, completing 12 of 22 passes for 126 yards.

Rivers led the South to a 21-0 first-quarter lead, throwing touchdown passes of 9 yards to Cedric Cobbs of Arkansas and 21 yards to Virginia Tech's Ernest Wilford. The second came on the first play after a fumbled snap by the North's Cody Pickett, recovered by Dockett.

LSU's Davery Henderson had five catches for 120 yards.
