Sideline Pass Cutie of the Week 11.29.09
Okay, are they blue, green, grey or hazel? I’m talking about Miles Austin’s gorgeous eyes! This breakout star for the Dallas Cowboys is setting NFL records and hearts on fire! Undrafted in 2006, Austin spent his first season on special teams returning kickoffs. Cowboys’ fans should have known that Austin was a rising star when he returned the first ever Cowboys kickoff return touchdown in a playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. In 2009, Austin became the third string wide receiver behind Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton. After Williams was injured, Austin got his first start against the Kansas City Chiefs and set a Cowboys franchise record with 10 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns in a single game, breaking the record set by Bob Hayes in 1966. Since his week five start against the Chiefs, Austin leads the NFL with six touchdown catches of 20 yards or more and an average 19.6 yards per catch proving that he’s a legitimate contender as the Cowboys number one wide receiver. Ladies, can I add that with those dreamboat eyes that are absolutely hypnotizing, Austin has secured a legitimate place on the cuties list.
Osi Umenyiora’s parents gave him the perfect name. Born in England to Nigerian parents, his full name, Ositadinma, means “from today things will be good,” and when
this British cutie’s in the line up things have been good for the New York Giants’ defense. Selected out of Troy University, formerly Troy State University, in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft, this two-time Pro Bowler set the Giants individual team record with six sacks in a single game against the Philadelphia Eagles in 2007 and was a major defensive factor to the Giants victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. While he missed the entire 2008 season due to cartilage damage in his left knee that required surgery, his stats include 238 tackles, 164 of which were solo tackles, 41 sacks, 14 forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries. Yes ladies, from today things will be good since we added this cutie from across the ocean to our list. In fact, looking at Osi with his fine self my day is not off to a good start, it’s off to a great start!!
DeAngelo Hall is breathtaking. Not only is he good at stopping offensives, he’s good at stopping hearts! I don’t know about you, but I could get lost in those perfectly shaped almond eyes and long eyelashes. While some people are not into tattoo art, Hall has more than 100 images covering his beautifully sculpted body – he can cover me any day! Drafted eighth in the first round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2004, Hall was selected twice to the Pro Bowl, before he was traded to the Oakland Raiders in 2008. Midway through the 2008-2009 season, Hall was released by the Raiders and picked-up by the Washington Redskins signing a one-year contract. In six seasons in the NFL, Hall has 22 interceptions with 475 return yards, two touchdowns, and as a Redskin he has five interceptions and 73 tackles. In the 2009 off season, Hall signed a six year contract to stay with the burgundy and gold, which should make female fans in the nation’s capital very happy (lol)!!
