Pro Canes Update: Week 1

Pro Canes Update: Week 1

The 100th season of the NFL is underway and, as you might expect, there are Miami Hurricanes littered all across the league. In this weekly article, I am going to recap the NFL week in regards to the Miami alums in the pros. This is week 1 of the ‘Pro Canes Update’.

**It was a slow week for Miami running backs. Frank Gore began his 15th NFL season but ran for just 20 yards. Mark Walton had 1 carry and totaled just 1 yard. Duke Johnson was the one bright spot here. Duke carried the ball 9 times for 57 yards and also caught 4 passes for 33 yards during his Monday night Texans debut.

**At receiver, Allen Hurns had 1 catch for 22 yards, Travis Benjamin recorded 2 receptions for 12 yards, and Braxton Berrios had a 10-yard return, but the star of the week was Phillip Dorsett. Dorsett hauled in 4 catches for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns.

**TEU was on full display the first night of the NFL season as Jimmy Graham scored the first touchdown of the year, along with 30 yards on 3 catches. David Njoku and Greg Olsen also performed well on Sunday. Njoku had 4 catches for 37 yards and a score while Greg Olsen snatched 4 catches for 36 yards.

**On the offensive line, Jon Feliciano, Seantrel Henderson, Brandon Linder, and Erick Flowers all started for their respective teams.

**On the defensive line, Allen Bailey, Calais Campbell, and RJ McIntosh all had a couple of tackles. Al-Quadin Muhammad had 2 tackles and 1 sack.

**LB Thurston Armbrister recorded 1 tackle for the Cardinals.

**In the secondary, Rayshawn Jenkins had 2 tackles and Artie Burns had 1. Sheldrick Redwine made his NFL debut and had 1 tackle.

**As for the specialists, Matt Bosher and Pat O’Donnell continue to boom punts.

Golden’s OL all in the league, smh. Dorsett the most pissed of anyone about the AB deal. So happy for him he got to show what he could do before taking a back seat to a tool.Duke and Watson did some work together last night. Duke can block too.

I keep wondering how we have all these OL starters in the NFL but I never felt like we had a good line under Golden...

All those OL kids were solid. Shane McDermott wasn’t a bad college center, either. It’s so frustrating that we squandered those rosters with bad coaching and quite possibly the worst DC and defensive scheme among the Power 5 conferences.

Our offense was never really the issue with Golden.
