The Streak: Weeks 36-40

98 comments

~ The following article was contributed by beloved Eye of the Hurricane blogger, Delray ~

Here we are once again with are weekly installment of “The Streak.” Today we will look at weeks 36-40 that encompass the final two weeks of the 2004 season and the first three weeks of the 2005 season.

Week #36:

Week 16 in the 2004 season saw 5 Canes find the end zone. Willis McGahee found it twice. Willis broke the 100 yard mark on only 15 carries including runs of 3 and 1 yard to help the Bills destroy the 49ers 41-7. Andre Johnson scored on a 10 yard pass from David Carr to lead the Texans in a shutout win over the Jaguars 21-0. Bubba Franks only had 1 reception but he made it count as he connected with Brett for a 22 yard TD pass as the Packers defeated the Vikings 34-31 in a Christmas Eve thriller in the dome. Vinny came up with some late game heroics throwing a 39 yard TD pass to Patrick Crayton in the 4th quarter to put the Cowboys up for good 13-10 over the Redskins. Santana Moss refused to let the Jets be shutout by the Patriots and scored in the 4th quarter of a 23-7 loss to the Patriots.

Week #37:

Week 17 started out like the previous week for Willis McGahee as he again scored twice against the Steelers on rushes of the same as the previous week. The Bills just did not have enough against the Steelers who finished the season 15-1. Bubba Franks was back also proving to be Brett’s go-to guy in the red zone. Bubba recorded a 17 yard pass reception as the Packers defeated the Bears 31-14. Reggie Wayne and the Colts finished their season on a losing note in Denver by dropping one to the Broncos 33-14. Reggie had 3 receptions for 90 yards, one of which was a 71 yard pass from Jim Sorgi. A couple of quarterbacks got into the action this week as Vinny and Ken Dorsey both had scoring strikes. Vinny had two scores, one to Jason Witten from 7 yards out and another to Witten on a 2 point conversion (OK just throwing this in there) that gave the Cowboys the lead. It turned out to be not enough as the Giants scored 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter to defeat the Cowboys 28-24. And to end the 2004 season we have a new entrant into the streak: Jonathan Vilma scored on a 38 yard interception from Marc Bulger in a 32-29 loss to the Rams. Bulger threw for 450 yards that day.

Week #38:

The first week of the 2005 season saw only one Cane find the end-zone. Perhaps a little pre-season rust? No worries, Jeremy Shockey took care of business as he connected with Eli from 20 yards out for the first score of the game to start the Giants route of the Cardinals 42-19.

Week #39:

Well, Sunday came and went with no Canes reaching the end zone. No doubt the streak was in jeopardy. Our best hope was Santana Moss, suiting up for his new team the Washington Redskins, playing on the road against the Dallas Cowboys. Things did not look promising late in the 4th quarter the Cowboys held a 13-0 lead and the Redskins facing a 4th down and 15 with less than 4 minutes remaining. Now I never played the game past the Pop Warner level, but if you have the lead this late in the game, the last thing you do is let the receiver get behind you. Santana Moss got behind his man and resurrected the streak with a 39 yard pass from Mark Brunell. Not only did he keep the streak alive but he also kept the Redskins hopes in the game alive, barely. So just for good measure, he scored a minute ten seconds later. This time on a 70 yard touchdown pass from Brunell for the game winning touchdown lifting the Redskins over the Cowboys 14-13 in a Monday Night thriller.

Week #40:

The 3rd week of the 2005 season saw a few Canes shake off the rust. Willis came back to us with an 8 yard rush in a losing effort against the Falcons 24-16. Willis did his part rushing for 140 yards. Edge also broke the 100 yard mark rushing for 108 yards as the Colts defeated the Browns 13-6.

Again, hopefully you are enjoying this as much as I am, and I look forward to seeing you all out at the Ted Hendricks Stadium this Saturday at 10:00am.

    JSQ beat me to it about Payne. Barton was the one a month ago. Payne was just starting to gather his stuff at that point…

  14. Grrrr, woman’s work? Like this brief I am finishing? ;-)

    Tell Marissa I will gladly do a recipe exchange with her. Wish you guys were coming to the spring game!

  15. I’m having trouble keeping these kids straight. All these “who? oh yeah . . .” players that you forget are even on the team.

  16. That’s just another one of the heads that’s been kicked off the team..

    Cain and Henderson need to tread lightly, they both run with most of the kids that are off the team now..

    Davis, Reid, Johnson, Nelson..

  17. Just laughed like Beavis for 15 seconds because I cited a case called “Woody” in the brief I’m writing . . .

    Whatever gets you through the day.

  18. CK – don’t hate Crow, just don’t want him being the starting QB for the Canes and thought/still think it was crazy to spend a scholly on him when I still believe if he stays at the QB position, he’ll be Gray “Matt Perrelli” Crow

    Kid is a hard worker, seems like a complete team player … turn him into something else like H-Back or like others have said – a Buck Ortega

    Plus, you know it’s wayyyyyy too early for any kind of seriousness when it comes to believing anything on the depth chart. Mind games are dominating right now

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  21. I like what i saw from shayon green at defensive end, that’s the position i saw him playing when he came in, never seen em as a linebakcer, at defensive end, he stays healty, he’ll cause problems. I like the way our defensive line is shaping up with that starting group, going to be tuff in the trenches. I can see the front four being porter, d.smith, chick & shayon green, i’m cool with that group. Linebackers, dzp, gaines, and eddie johnson might take a spot, going to be hard for gionni paul and buc to get back into that starting line-up.

    Secondary, of course, ray-ray, vaughn telemaque migth just hold onto his spot, db’s, i got thomas finnie on one side, not sure who’s on the other! finnie lays wood like mike rumph, we haven’t had a db that comes up and hits in a long time, finnie plays physical.

    sgorten Seantrel Henderson starts scrimmage at first team RT. Mike James also first team.

    CB Brandon McGee out there with first team defense

    Clive Walford with nice catch in end zone. Two TDs here in goal-line situation

    Two early fumbles here on goal line work. This one recovered by defense in end zone

  26. 55 yard run by Mike James? keep seeing long runs reported by James. Is that him stepping up or the defense sucking?

    although if the OL is doing their things our RBs will have success.

  27. Este we should see a better running game this yr.

    OL better be much better.

    ### Crow was the second UM quarterback to enter the scrimmage (behind Williams) and delivered a few ill-advised throws but also but made a few more plays than Dewey, who was UM’s third quarterback. Many UM people expected Dewey to enter UM as a more polished quarterback than Crow, but it hasn’t looked that way so far.

    A.J. Highsmith and Tyrone Cornelius dropped errant passes from Dewey that should have been intercepted. Dewey, who also overthrew walk-on Darris Hughes on a simple screen pass, finished 4 for 12 for 21 yards.

    Gionni Paul dropped a potential interception thrown by Crow, who was 7 for 14 for 43 yards. One of Crow’s best plays – a pass to David Perry – was fumbled by Perry just as he was going into the end zone.

    “It’s fun and challenging as a coach for two of your three quarterbacks to be high school seniors,” offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said of Crow and Dewey, who are early arrivals.

    Nice day out in Hialeah… although Minime & I got a little too much sun. :)

    A couple of things: Tyrone Cornelius & Gionni Paul did push-ups after their dropped INTs & a bunch of guys had to do gassers after the scrimmage… including some of the walk-on WRs that dropped passes. Asante Cleveland, Clive Walford, and David Perry are all huge!

    CHANGE YOUR NUMBER PRESTON, QUICK, IT’S THE ONLY WAY

  43. Henderson, Armstrong, other Canes looking to reach potential; plus Fins, Heat

    SUNDAY BUZZ COLUMN

    Every major college program that’s good enough to land four- and five-star recruits end up with some that never quite live up to the hype. With UM spring practice resuming this week, several Canes are trying to shed that tag. Among them:

    ### Seantrel Henderson: His UM career, through two-plus years, has included at least two violations of team rules, knee and back injuries and an inability to hold onto a starting job (just two starts in eight games last year after returning from back surgery).

    “He remains a mystery to me,” said Mike Scanlan, Henderson’s high school coach at Cretin-Derham (Minn.). “I hope he takes advantage of his last years at Miami and gives himself a chance to play on Sundays.”

    Why hasn’t he reached elite level? Former teammate Brandon Washington mentioned the back injury but also this: “If he wants to be an All-Pro, he’s got to get his priorities right. He could be a top 10 pick.” Washington said Henderson (a five-star recruit) and Malcolm Bunche (a four-star recruit, according to Rivals.com) have “got to take it more seriously. If they don’t live off the hype and get after it more, they will be good players.” (Bunche has been the first team left tackle throughout spring practice.)

    One UM person said Henderson cannot assume he will dominate opponents merely because of physical ability. Offensive line coach Art Kehoe said Henderson “has to learn coach Golden wants to run this team in a certain fashion and get done what he has to get done. Because he made a couple mistakes, he knows his clock is running now.”

    Golden puts it this way: “Seantrel needs to believe in and trust a process that will allow him to be the best player he can be. He has a good heart.”

    Henderson got off to a poor start this spring, with a two-day suspension March 3-4. “It was my mistake,” he said Saturday. “I was angry about.”

    But since then, there have been encouraging signs. He has regained his first-team spot at right tackle, ahead of Jermaine Johnson. Golden said Henderson is stronger and better conditioned than last year, and Kehoe said his work habits are “much better than when I got here,” though Kehoe wants to “raise the bar” further.

    Speaking publicly for the first time since last season, Henderson said Saturday, “I’m growing. I’m still trying to make the change moving from Minnesota to Miami. It’s two different coaches. It’s just a change from Randy Shannon leaving. We’re getting used to how coach Golden runs the program, and we’ll be a better team because of it. The way he runs the program, I’m all with it.”

    Henderson admits being the nation’s No. 2 overall recruit in 2010 “is still pressure because people don’t forget.” He said after he returned from back surgery last season, “I felt fine but my confidence wasn’t all the way up.” He briefly left Saturday’s scrimmage with a knee injury but returned and said he’s fine.

    As a player, “I don’t think he’s anywhere near where he can be,” Kehoe said. Henderson agrees: “I’m still far away. I still got a lot to work on, completing my whole game. I’m better at run-blocking” than pass-blocking.

    Last word from Kehoe: “I think he’s going to have a breakout year.”

    ### Vaughn Telemaque and Ray-Ray Armstrong. They’ve talked for years about being the nation’s top safety tandem, but they have only a year left to get there. “They were tentative and apprehensive last year,” ex-Cane safety Bennie Blades said. “We’re waiting for them to be impact players like Sean Taylor and Ed Reed. I’m optimistic.”

    Telemaque, a four-star recruit, has been a solid starter but hasn’t created as many turnovers as some expected (four career interceptions); remember, he was known as a big-time ball-hawk as a highly recruited high school player in California.

    Armstrong, a five-star recruit, took a step back last year when he was suspended twice. He also was responsible in coverage for four touchdown passes. “I didn’t play how I was supposed to,” he said. “There were a lot of distractions last year. I wasn’t really into it.”

    Is it reasonable to expect both to be elite? “I think it is,” defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said. “It’s up to them. It’s natural not just for those guys but for college players that they want to work on the things they already do well but don’t want to work on the things they need to fix. It’s their job to trust the coaching, put their egos aside and fix it.”

    D’Onofrio and Golden are encouraged. “Armstrong has been really impressive this spring,” Golden said. “We need him to be a play-maker.” ESPN’s Todd McShay said he has first-round talent.

    And “in fairness to those guys, I’m their third coordinator,” D’Onofrio said. We’ve asked them to do more stuff than they did previously.”

    ### Brandon McGee. The team’s only senior cornerback and the fastest player on defense, McGee (a four-star recruit) opened spring on the third-team because of subpar work in the offseason program. Golden is demanding more from him, especially in man coverage.

    “He has long arms, elite speed; now he’s got to be a more physical corner,” Golden said. “We’re working with him to be a tougher kid in terms of tackling.”

    ### Unlike those above, some other highly-coveted recruits have made virtually no impact. Golden expects tight end Dyron Dye, who came with Armstrong from Sanford Seminole High, to “help us as a physical blocker. Big, strong, physical kid.” Though UM could use help at defensive end, Golden said Dye (a four-star recruit) will not be switched back there because his skill set is better for tight end…

    Johnson, a four-star recruit, lost 14 pounds and “looks completely different than all last year,” Golden said. Said Johnson: “I’m more committed. I have a kid on the way and had to make a change.”… Jeremy Lewis, a four-star recruit who moved over from defensive tackle, has impressed this spring battling Jon Feliciano at left guard. “It’s going to be a close race,” Golden said.

    ### For a dozen news and notes from Saturday’s UM scrimmage, see our previous post.

    Staying @ Wyndham Blake, flying in Thursday early afternoon and leaving Sunday early afternoon, best price I found through Priceline.com $662 per person

    If you are going better suit up quick, from what KL heard yesterday there is a marathon happening that same weekend in downtown Chi-Town

    PS; BG, KL had a nice long convo with Tracy Howards mother, says she is super nice, and you would love her!!

  46. Defensively, coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said he had to make adjustments with defensive end Anthony Chickillo out with an injury.

  48. BG, thanks for posting.

    Sailor, the Cicago Marathon is the following Sunday. Trying to talk Mrs. Delray into running it but noy have much luck. Just booked a flight to thE ATL in June so I may have to find some cards to play.

  49. esteban, he starting already, it’s to early for that crap, i wonder what the stats were before chick went out. What’s even more bothersome, is crow throwing for a touchdown pass. He starting already, no matter what kind of team we had, for the most part you always knew we were going to have some type of defense you just wasn’t going to just run over all game long, this guy, give me no confidence he has a clue on what to do or even what he’s doing.

  50. Calvin, good points. That may be your shortest post Eva!

  51. Sailor is right, hop on that ish!

    I booked in January and I paid around $700 so Priceline is a little cheaper than Expedia. It was $953 total just for me but I am sharing the hotel 250/250.

    I arrive Friday around noon and leave Sunday afternoon.

    Not sure which is worse, watching them suck, or y’all rehashing the suckitude for 6 days after.

  60. Orlando Sentinal on Kermit’s decommitment:

    He said the one school he would like to see offer him is Florida State, which is where his cousin and fellow speedster Marvin Bracy will play next season as a freshman.

    “I want all my offers to come in and then I’ll decide where I fit in,” Whitfield said. “I’d Like to see FSU offer me. I’d like to see a lot of schools offer me.

    “I’m too much of a great player to sit on one school. This is the hardest decision ever. I have to find what school is best for Kermit, best school for Lavonte.”

    Bitched at for not taking the shot. Bitched at for taking the shot.

    No wonder.

  65. Seems like CLOCKWORK the guy that commits first and commits EARLY ALWAYS decommits. Bad year to play that strategy. Fastest guy in the country or not, we don’t have a lot of space and schollies will be tight. Who advises these kids??? If you REALLY want to be at Miami and you were LUCKY ENOUGH to already have an early offer, there is NO TIME or SPACE to be BS’ing. Best of luck to him because I now think before its all said and done he WON’T be in this class.

    Ask Pat Peterson/Johnson….

    He made that misleading quote transcendingly famous.

  73. Moving on down [my office anyway] to downtown Fort Lauderdale tomorrow!

    Funny that after 6 years of practice, I move right back to where I started after graduating.

    Not so funny that I don’t still live in Sailboat Bend, but whatever . . .

    I think I’m mostly pi$$ed off that they closed the downtown FLL Chicken Kitchen!

    WTF is that about?

  74. Bg, just did some follow-up on your surprise, I hope you are feeling good about the big day tomorrow! We are all behind you!

    pb thinks Kermit has some type of other drama if he’s gone looking for other schools.

    pb thinks it is likely one of two things 1) Our staff is cooling off on him due to grades or baggage or 2) Someone is offering money, and Kermit wants money.

    JpbsO

  76. JSQ.

    Yes I am. I’m actually excited and nervous all at the same time. I truly appreciate all you guys have done for me and all the kind words. Thanks for everything and as soon as I can, I’ll let you guys know I’m ok. My wife will be updating all my social media, etc, so check there first!

  77. I received an update!

    The special package will be picked up tomorrow in Miami, and after that, it should be coming your way, bg!!!!

    The kid wants attention etc, I talked to him last nite. The coaches have not cooled off they still are actively recruiting him, He just wants those trips and all that comes along with it. Although i would not rule out if FSU offers that he would jump there but they already have 2 small fast receivers so I think he does not get that offer unless it is for track only.

  79. Pb, agreed, seems like something is up there, and to mention F$U, it makes me think that either he knows someone else getting paid, or Miami has seriously cooled off on him so he is being a vindictive little bish by bringing up our rival.

    It’s like when you dump a guy and he starts talking to your frumpy friend to make you jealous.

    It’s not making us jealous, Kermit, we don’t want you anymore and now we just feel sorry for you.

  80. I’ve been on hold with the ticket office for 15 minutes

    There is probably one dude working and the rest are out to lunch.

  81. Field club tickets purchased.

    Good LORD that’s a lot of $$$!

    Love those ‘Canes!

  82. When Mom or Muffins aren’t attending games, you guys get first dibs on joining me on the field. :-)

  83. Anyone listen to Al Golden w/ Joe Rose this morning? I swear everytime he was AG on he’s ALWAYS trying to ask him about certain recruits. He’s always like, “I know coach you can’t talk about a certain kid but what a big commit you got.”

    Joe Rose needs to know we’re in enough trouble with the NCAA and needs to cool it was that shit.

    Let’s not go crazy about what some 16-17 year junior says. Who cares, let the kid take his trips. At that age, I would have.

    Remember, this is a kid a couple of years out of puberty. I expect this type of indecisiveness and/or attention seeking from most kids this age.

    He’ll either sign or he won’t, and we’re almost a year away from that. A lot could happen between then and now.

  85. Dibzzzz!!!!

  86. $2,300 in donations alone to UM athletics this year and it’s not even April.

    My $$$ is where my mouth is! :-)

    Golden, it’s your turn, buddy!

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Yea, JSQ, if these were investments our a$$es would be panhandling now.

  91. BG, You got this! We are with you.

  92. Lol, Cubed, ain’t it the truth.

    When I was interviewed for Stories of U, Ben showed me my history of giving to the University – since I was actually a student – and I was like, dang, they have only gotten worse since 2003 so I’m not sure my $$ has been well-spent!

  93. My friends in Chicago are providing the typical tailgate accoutrements.

    This will not be an amateur hour away game tailgate.

    Prepare your livers accordingly.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    DAMN JSQ, you’re a boss. I only got $100 to the athletic program ($200 to the Biz school)

  95. No boss about it, that’s what the seat donations and a brick outside the Schwartz Center cost!

    It will all be worth it to see my mom’s face when we get to those seats.

    . . . and even more worth it when she gets to see us beat up on VA Tech from those seats. :-)
