Stop me if you heard this name before...
I saw this every week, so it must be working, BUT FRANK GORE IS TIMELESS!!! The 12-year vet rushed 19 times for 60 yards, including this touchdown in the first quarter against the Packers:

And Frank Gore out here scoring TDs on the weekly.

BEAST. Gore isn’t and never has been the fastest, biggest or strongest player, but he is extremely good at his job and plays HIS game. Father time is working against him as well, but he continues to produce and give the Colts a reliable running back.
I COULDN’T WAIT TO WRITE THIS UP! BECAUSE...

Artie Burns first career INT! pic.twitter.com/268pxbLY86— WeAreDBnation (@WeAreDBNation1) November 6, 2016
WOOOO!!! CONGRATS ARTIE!!!
Even though it was against my Baltimore Ravens I started cheering when I realized Artie got his first pick. That’s a big deal, especially because it was Artie’s first career start. Burns still looks like he’s getting a feel for the speed and talent of the NFL, but his career will blossom. Take that to the bank!
A new name for the list! A name the Canes faithful know so well, mostly because of his misuse at Miami. Chick had a great freshman season for the Canes, then Golden and Onofrio (No ‘D’) decided he needed to gain weight to fit their scheme. Chick decided enough was enough and lost weight DIRECTLY after his final game at Miami and initially got down to 256 pounds and regained his speed and quickness that went well with his high motor.
Chick appears to have found his role in Pittsburgh and played the highest percentage of snaps in the OLB group for the Steelers. It will be fun to watch he and Burns’ growth in the NFL after their years at Miami.
G-REG! Best tight end in the league, don't @ me.
Olsen went for 52 yards on five receptions yesterday in the Panthers win over the Rams. Olsen now has 673 yards and three touchdowns on the season and is well on his way to his third consectutive 1,000-yard season.
Another former Cane from the glory days calls it a career. As stated above, Rolle was a three-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl Champ with the New York Football Giants. I always thought Rolle had a little something left in him, but players know when to call it a career. All the best to Antrel and his life moving forward! ITS ALL ABOUT THE U!
That’s all for this week’s installment! Tune in tonight to Monday Night Football, as All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the Seahawks take on the Buffalo Bills. See you guys next week and GO CANES!
