Nelson’s game against Auburn impressive

If there’s a way for you to access the 2008 game between Southern Miss and Auburn on Sept. 6th you’ll like what you see from Shawn Nelson.

He was double teamed for almost the entire game, but they kept feeding him the ball and he kept making plays.

“In the Auburn game on every pass play they knew every play was going to him and they still weren’t able to stop him,” said Bills scout Shawn Heinlen. “For him to be able to do that is his strength.”

Nelson’s stat line for that game? 12 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

I just love the problems Buffalo’s passing game is now posing for opposing defenses. T.O. and Evans on the outside and then Josh Reed and Shawn Nelson on the inside keeping defenses honest. Good luck with that.
