Another Week, Another Award for Jacoby Ford

It’s getting to the point where you can set your watch to Jacoby Ford making spectacular plays and winning individual awards. Just a few weeks back Ford burst onto the scene with his demolition of the Chiefs. That performance earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. While that performance was a surprise, what he’s done since has been a revelation.

The fourth round pick from Clemson is no longer flying under the radar. Not after two kick return TDs, one receiving touch and a handful of spectacular catches in a four week span. For his efforts, Ford was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

Last Sunday Ford made history by becoming the first Raider to ever take the opening kick to the house. Proving that there is more to his game than that Raider Speed, Ford is also turning heads in the passing game. Just check that sick over the shoulder grab and sprint to the end zone not to mention his clutch grabs against Kansas City and Miami as evidence.

At this rate, we’ll be calling Ford the AFC Player of the Month – never mind special teams – come the end of December.

Congrats to Jacoby! He’s certainly been carrying the load as the Raiders rediscover their form.

    Right because winning 23-20 against the Chiefs is “demolishing” them :P

    I won’t take anything from Jacoby Ford – he made some great plays – but until JaniIcan’tbelieveitsnotbutterski went out and made that field goal that game was either way. And yes I am a pathetic Chief’s fan, what of it?

    Memo to daChiefs,

    I never said the Raiders “demolished” the Chiefs. Notice this post is about Jacoby Ford…who demolished the Chiefs. One kick return, one INT saving grab, one long gain to put the game on ice. One man owned your team. Could have been 23-20, could have been 53-3, either way all your sqaud had to do was stop Ford. And you guys had been bragging about Flowers all year…yeah…he got abused by Jacoby.
