Ageless Wonder, Frank Gore, Helps Secure Jets’ Controversial Win As They Lose Control in the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes

Week 15 ProCane of the Week: RB/Frank Gore - The New York Jets came under a lot of scrutiny this week because they won a game and lost control of their opportunity to procure the prodigy QB also known as Trevor Lawrence. However, the ageless wonder, Frank Gore, assisted with securing New York’s first win with a third quarter TD that put the team up 20-3. Gore also made the reception that secured the win with a third down reception in the fourth quarter to put New York into victory formation.

“I’m happy,” Gore said. “I had good years, I had bad years, I had tough years, like this has been a tough one. One thing I can say: I never went 0-16. We finally got one. I’m happy. I’m happy that [general manager Joe Douglas], Adam gave me an opportunity to play another year. To be here with these young guys, man, even though I know the year ain’t go how I planned it, but we’ve been fighting as a team. We’re steady going and we’re getting better.”

While the year has not gone as planned, it does not seem like Gore ever slows down. He has scored a touchdown in three different decades, while his son, Frank Gore Jr., is making waves on the NCAA RB circuit for the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. Gore Sr. has also set a record for 240 games, the most games played by a running back in NFL history. At this rate, we may have to wait until 2040 until Gore joins the Hall of Fame. But, when he eventually retires, he needs to be first ballot.

ProCanes Week 15 Highlights:

Other Jet, TE, Chris Herndon, assisted with the controversial victory who had 3 receptions for 48 yards, including a 22-yarder that setup Gore’s TD.

In Sunday Night action, Safety, Sheldrick Redwine, got the start due to injuries and had a strong performance. He strung together 8 tackles and only allowed 1 completion for 7 yards while in coverage. For just the second time in his career, and for the first time this season, Redwine played 100% of the Browns’ defensive snaps in their 20-6 victory. DE, Olivier Vernon, assisted with the Browns defensive onslaught with 3 tackles, 1 TFL, and 1 QBHit.

There was also some movement amongst ProCanes. OL, Danny Isidora, was picked up by the Steelers after spending most of the season on the Chiefs’ practice squad. Former Pro Bowl RB, Lamar Miller, was signed by the Washington Football Team after being waived by the Patriots during final cuts before the season and spending some time with the Chicago Bears.

Week 16 Projected ProCane of the Week: TE/Jimmy Graham - As the Bears play host to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago should have ample red zone opportunities, which is good news for Graham. Graham has garnered 80 TDs since 2010, which ranks second overall. He also has 6 TDs this season and the Bears are in a must-win situation at 7-7 after two straight wins.
