Greetings Zou fans! Every week we will be taking a look at former Tigers and how they did in the NFL that corresponding week. Something fresh and new to sink your teeth into per se. As we start to rebuild the site and give some fresh opinions for our readers we are also looking for some Staff Writers for!

This week we will be taking a look at the all-famous Philadelphia Eagles and former star Mizzou WR Jeremy Maclin. Despite a close game with the Cleveland Browns and QB Michael Vick throwing 4 picks our boy J-Mac hauled in 7 passes for 96 yards and a TD. He is progressing very well and I am excited to keep an eye on him the rest of the season and really see him come into his own.

My prediction is by the end of the season he will be the Eagles go-to-guy, passing up WR De’Sean Jackson due to attitude issues and lack of production in the 2012 season. This could be a break out year for Jeremy Maclin. He left a great impact on Mizzou Football and will forever be remembered as an all-time great.

-Jeremy Maclin was born May 11th, 1989 in Chesterfield, MO
