In response to TFB12's comment:
Haha! Are you freaking serious?? This is a freaking hilarious comment by you. This has to be the funniest thing I have read in a while. Total knee slapper!
Yeah man LOL "total knee slapper" for sure! just hilarious! Who the hell says 'knee slapper' anymore?
You have said all over this forum that the TE position is fine because they have Hooman! Do you know just how crazy that is? Hooman sucks! The TE position is nonexistent when Gronk is out and Hooman is in. Any 5 of those TE's in the draft are better then Hooman.
I agree with that. never said that wasn't true. I'm just not losing any sleep over it. I personally don't think it's a big deal that we didn't get the 5 TEs.
Good luck with that argument on this forum. You have two different sides to battle with concerning your statement.
1. I believe The top 5 TE's are good enough coming out of college to be huge in this offense. We are seeing so many better TE's coming out of college now and doing well in the pass oriented league.
2. There are many people on this forum who have said that the offense system makes the receiver. How many times have you read on here that a certain receive wasn't good until he came to NE or wasn't good after he left NE? Lots. So if they are saying that about receivers then that would probably go for TE's too.
I agree that the offense makes the player, and in this offense that's the slot WR. But since it 'probably fits for TE too' that must be true because you said it and you're never wrong. Tell me, if the offense makes the TE why does Hooman suck? Because the offense cant make bad TE look good, just WR.
Either way, you comment is totally false
So adding Lafell to the offense is going to make all the difference in the world? yeah, if Gronk goes down no big deal, they added Lafell, Good one Joe!
I think the offense is fine. yeah they may not be putting up 40 ppg like your broncos but they are built just fine. Two outside guys, Dobson and LaFell. Slot- Boyce, Edelman and Amendola. Running back Ridley.
The reason I'm nt worried about the offense is because you are forgetting how good the defense is going to be. THe offense should not be forced to do too much this season which is fine given the personnel we have.
Listen, if we missed out on Talib or Revis then didn't sign browner and failed to bring in LaFell, I would be in the exact same boat as you. I would be flipping out for a TE and all these things but our team has gotten BETTER (which obviously you fail to see) so I'm not complaining. BB and the team actually took steps to get better not worse (unlike 2011-2012 then 2012-2013 where we had horrible offseasons) They actually had a GOOD offseason for once! That's why im not complaining!
Look at how Seattle won the title. Did they have any big name WR besides Tate who is probably a little better than JE? no they had scrubs. But the O-line gave Wilson time to throw when needed and he made the plays which if our OL did for Brady he would pick apart defenses. He was sacked the a career high this past year, not good. Seattle also had a defense that played the pass well. We have REvis and Browner now that vastly improves the defense.
If the OL would give Brady time in a big game for once, and the DL and secondary could make some plays then we are winning titles. not because we do or don't have a top 5 TE from the most recent draft.
Some good points. Despite starting the season with no WRs other than Edelmann who had caught a pass from TB, and Gronk missing most of the year, they put up the second most points in the league. That was with Hooman being the starting TE for much of the year. Much more comfortable with this years situation as camp starts. They will find another TE one way or another. The kid Justin Jones from East Carolina is a monster of an athlete (6' 8, 277 with a 37 inch vertical jump, benches 400, squats 465, had decent shuttle times etc...). He had 52 catches and 12 TDs before being ruled ineligible academically last year. Whether that will translate to NFL production, who knows. If not, they will find someone to fill the needed role. The defense should be better as well. They finished top 10 in points allowed and 5th in sacks last year. Those should improve with Wilfork, Kelly and Mayo back, and the additions of Revis and Browner, along with Easley, and the other young guys having got some experience last year.
