Barnstormer Player of the Week: (Week 18)
 
Errick McCown-WR-#5                      Week 17 Line: 10 Rec for 101 Yds and 2 TDs.
 
McCown has shown that although he doesn’t quite have the height of Jesse Schmidt or Todd Blythe he can make just as big of catches. McCown opened the season with six receptions for 86 yards. McCown was later placed on Injured Reserve in the middle of the season with a quad injury, but once he was able to come back into the game he held nothing backing making his debut in Dallas with seven catches for 62 yard and a touchdown. McCown couldn’t have come back at a better time with both Tommy Ellingworth and Todd Blythe struggling with injuries he stepped up to the plate. Last week was McCown’s best showing of the year and would love go end the season with a bang.
