    gdog, look for former Ute Sione Pouha to be a Pro Bowl candidate this year. He's dominating the line of scrimmage (except in that awful game against the Raiders) and forcing fumbles. Whit and Sitake's defensive guys are killing it in the league right now!

    I watched the Ravens last two games and Kruger has had impact on both games. He is healthy and schooled in the defense now. Kruger could be in the news a lot more if he stays healthy and shines like he has of late.

    Eric Weddle is tied for the league lead in INTs. He had a brilliant game last Monday despite Phillip Rivers fumbling the snap (late game blunder). I love Weddle but I did wonder if the Chargers making him the highest paid safety in the league was a little wacky. Well Weddle has had a great season. he led the Chargers in tackles last year and is the League pick off artist this year.

    Former Utes are doing well in the NFL right now.

    Alex Smith has finally been put in a situation to succeed. He has proven how tough and resilient he is. Alex has been beating up on and off the field for the last 6 years.

    Sean Smith and Paul Soleai and Koa Misi are starters in Miami as well.

    If Kruger turns out to be half the football player as he was a missionary out here (in KC) - look out, the man will be unstoppable! Hope his brothers end up on missions as well! As a Y fan, I've always had a soft spot for his success...nice to see him resurface again.

    Kruger has come along way! From being attacked/stabbed and wondering if he would ever get back into football to being a contributor on an NFL team with a lot of potential and upside! Quite the journey for Mr Kruger! We are proud of you here in Utah! GO UTES!

    Have to wonder if any of the athletes carrying clipboards at the Y wish they could have had a coach like Whittingham. Just sayin.......

    Great article about another successful Ute in the NFL. With talents like that, it's no wonder they had been very successful. I hope as time goes on there will be more and more of these kind of stories about kids from the U, BYU, and other Utah schools who make it to the NFL. Thanks for sharing!

    Go Cougs! Go Utes!
