A new ProCanes TD streak was started this week, thanks to the second-best tight end in the league! (We’ll get to who’s the best in a minute)...
Frankly, there’s no stopping a healthy Jimmy Graham. Throw him the football and good things will happen. Here is my proof:
On a 3rd & 11 play in a tight game vs. the Eagles, QB Russell Wilson scrambled out of trouble and threw a 50/50 ball to Graham, and the All-Pro TE proved why he’s still amongst the best in the league. He finished the game with three catches for 46, including the 35-yard TD catch and run that put the Seahawks up 13-7 over Philadelphia. His Week 11 performance also solidified Graham’s case for being the best TE in Seattle’s history, in ONLY his second season with the team.
According to the graphic shown above, Graham has two of the top three best statistical seasons in Seahawk history. With 2016 not over, Graham is expected to shatter the previous record held by John Carlson. There’s also nearly a 100 percent chance he would have the top two seasons if he didn’t sustain a season-ending knee injury in 2015. After today’s performance, he is currently second in the NFL in receiving yards for tight ends.
There isn’t too much to report on Olsen in regards of this week’s performance (four receptions for 33 yards), but despite the lack of showing, Olsen is the best TE in the NFL.
As you can see, fellow ProCane is listed at No. 4 on the list. Concluding Week 11, Olsen leads all NFL tight ends in receiving yards (745) and receptions (54). Yeah, that’ll do quite nicely.
Also, Olsen had a beautiful piece written on him by The Players’ Tribune on his troublesome family experience.
Whether you are a fan of Miami, Carolina, Olsen, or football in general, this is a GREAT read. An easy 10/10.
ARTIE!!!! As a Ravens fan (I’m Baltimore born and raised), I DESPISE the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, there will never be a day a root against Artie Burns. The rookie has overcome a lot in his young life and has done everything the right way. On Sunday, he proved again why he was worthy of his first-round status.
He’s experienced some growing pains, as any rookie would, but Burns is shaping up to be a great addition to this Steeler defense.
Artie Burns now with two INTs on the season, still two more than any other Steelers DB.— Ray Fittipaldo (@rayfitt1) November 20, 2016
Do not discount what Burns has meant to this team. I’m not too good at math, but...
TIMELESS! That’s all there is to say about that.
Gore was never known for his burners, but is still known for making plays like that. Gore finished the day with 50 rushing yards and 71 receiving yards on four catches.
Frank Gore with 50 rushing yards, 121 total yards. 152 back of TO for 11th yards from scrimmage. 57 back of Dorsett for 8th all-time rushing— Niners Nation (@NinersNation) November 20, 2016
Frank Gore is at 592 yards right now. On pace for 1,052 yards.— Kevin Bowen (@KBowenColts) November 20, 2016
Again, no NFL running back age 33 or older has reached 1,000 yards since '84
“Beast” is the word that comes to mind. Future HOFer? I think so. After the 24-17 win over the Titans, Gore now has 642 yards on 163 carries to go along with four touchdowns on the ground and three more through the air. He is still on pace to rush for 1,000 yards (1,027), which would be a unbelievable feat for someone his age.
That’s all for Sunday’s action. Be sure to tune into the Monday Night Football matchup between Houston and Oakland to watch ProCanes Lamar Miller & Clive Walford in action.
See you guys next week!
