    BB building the all TE team?

    Maybe not but it sure is funny. Not to mention that all these guys they brought in are ex-McDaniels players

    But just for fun I'm building an O of TE's that the Pats have brought in for a look:


    Fells(WR)                       Sciafe(LG)       Melillo/Herman(C)    Urban(RG)            Winslow (WR)

                              Gronk (LT)                                                   Schia (RT)  
                   Hooman (TE)      

                                                           Tebow (QB) 

                                                             Hern (HB)

    Yes I know they didn't bring Tebow in for a look this year, but they did look at him in the draft and I kow he's not a TE but he might as well be since he's no QB either

    Not sure maybe BB will bring him in for a workout. He can give Wiggy another shot too!

    I forgot about Ballard and Silvestro, lol. Either the person who is investigating these TE's really stinks or BB is playing a joke on all of us

    List of players who have either practiced or expected to practice on the Pats:

    Fells
    Schia
    Gronk
    Hern
    Ballard
    Silvestro
    Sciafe
    Urban
    Mellilo
    Herman
    Hoomanie%@c14(

    That's 11 TE's! That is impressive
    did I miss anyone?

    McD and BB want the right fit for the most important position on the team.

    The real problem with the run game last year was not having more then 1 capable TE that could block AND catch.( We don't want Hern as a blocker) So when we marched Benny out in a run formation...they knew we were running.

    Now we have 4 or 5 guys who could be used in 2 TE set's that can do both, PA will be better utilized. How about Gronk, Fells, with 5 O-linemen, a RB, Hernandez as off set FB, and Lloyd/ WW out wide!?!?! We could run, pass or play action pass, or screen!! Insert Fells as a FB with Gronk and Shank out there(or this other kid) POWER I FORMATION!

    I love what we are seeing with the offense! This group screams variety, and has McDaniels thumb print all over it!!!

    I just had an idea. Why not dump Hilliard (lets face it he most likely won't last longer then a week anyways) and sign Winslow. Then you could see the first 5 TE formation  O.O

    Picture it Hern and Winslow on the edges. Hern transitions back to HB and Winslow motions out to split WR. Then you have Gronk as your inside TE on the right side, Fells as your outside TE on the right side, and finally Hooman of the left side in tight. Now that would just be hcomical trying to see the D figuring out assignments

    That's because Brady can't throw over 20 yards anymore.  So BB is filling the team with tight ends so all Brady has do is make 5 yards throws.

    Re: BB building the all TE team?

    I wonder if the search for a TE and the search for a FB aren't related.  BB gave his opinion on how a FB that lines up in the backfield prevents the defense from knowing thickside the extra blocker will be on like a TE or extra Olineman would.  

    FBs and TEs have similiar size and skill sets and I think what he may be in search of is a guy to line up in the backfield who can block like Gronk, or run with the ball, or turn around and catch without giving away much to the defense.

    Maybe the most interesting and telling thing is when they move Welker to TE.

    The Shank moved to new IR, eligible to return. The reason we signed monomnohhoommonuu.

    Glad is was Shianco and not Vareen!

    I wonder if you have to declare Shank as the exception IR upfront or can you wait the 8 weeks and use it then?

    If you have to declare that he's the exemption today then it's not worth using it this early on a #4 TE

    from what i hear today, i get teh impression you decide now if they are in the "pool" to be eligible for that (and shank was made eligible for that i read today).

    i answered someone who referenced shank as teh guy coming back from ir, with teh same thought you have. we'll see then, but at the moment, a te might not be teh most important piece; we'll have to see.

    Re: BB building the all TE team?

    It's going to be very interesting to see how Belichick and McDaniels utilize all these TEs--and how defenses adjust.  Are we using them as receivers, run blockers, or extra pass blockers (to shore up a shakey O line and/or neutralize potent pass rushes)?  There are lots of possibilities here.  It seems like a three TE set would mean a de-emphasis of the deep passing game.  But maybe having three TEs in forces Ds to bring in more LBs or big safeties.  We can then keep the TEs in as blockers and give Lloyd (and other receivers) more time to run deep routes against fewer small, speedy DBs.   There are obvious ways to use TEs as receivers and run blockers--but don't forget they can be used to neutralize pass rushes too and to change the composition of the defense in ways that may actually help a single deep threat (like Lloyd) get more chances.  

    Should be interesting to watch.

    4 and WW in the bubble behind all of the behemouths! No way does a defender find WW.

    Hernandez won't play as a tight end, they may as well remove that designation from his name.  He'll be an HBack, a Fullback, a slot receiver.  

    Gronk and Fells will play tightend sets and Hoomanawanui if he sticks will be the road paving guy down near the goal line and on short down conversions.  

    At the end of the day what all this means is that they'll try to keep Brady upright and more efficient in the clutch by running the ball... not always a popular sentiment around here but that's the way it is.
