Sopoaga's intro, LaBoy and Pisa log sacks, Manuwai plays, CO profiled

Check out how Isaac Sopoaga introduced himself during the 49ers-Eagles Sunday Night Football game.

Sopoaga ended the game with one tackle while his teammate Travis LaBoy had two tackles, including a sack.

Pisa Tinoisamoa had 3 tackles, including this sack of Jimmy Clausen.

Vince Manuwai is currently a back-up guard, but saw his first action of the year today.
Guard Vince Manuwai played for the first time this year because Justin Smiley had a nagging foot injury and came out of the game.

"It felt great being in action but I kind of got a little gassed,'' Manuwai said. "Hopefully, I did what I was supposed to do.''
The Black & Teal Jaguars blog liked what they saw.
The running game was superb today and I think it is because of one reason, the return of Vince Manuwai. Vince and Eugene had a great chemistry going and the Jaguars ran at will today. David had almost perfect protection. I never bought into the Justin Smiley idea and it was great to see Vince in the line-up.
Over in the CFL, Chad Owens had 2 catches for 16 yards, returned 3 kicks for 72 yards, and returned 7 punts for 55 yards in a victory over Saskatchewan. Earlier in the week, Ian Hamilton of the Leader-Post profiled Owens.
What he does on special teams is set up his blocks well and, when a hole opens up, hit it with what Daley called speed that is "special." He's strong — he has a tattoo of Mighty Mouse on his right bicep — and compact, which helps explain why he's rarely taken down by the first tackler.

Owens also has 35 catches for 485 yards and two TDs, and one carry for 11 yards. He leads the CFL with 2,407 combined yards, 852 more than second-place Deon Murphy of the Calgary Stampeders entering this weekend's action.

It all goes to his goal of giving everything he has while trying to "leave a legacy out here."
