I keep forgetting to make this topic

in king and rosarios first years, they began to start making plays and becoming involved in the offense around the end of their seasons

now the difference in now is that barnidge has alot stiffer competition for plays on the field, and he may not be needed, I'd just like to know how he's progressing, maybe I'll send gantt an email during the bye week

I remember the scouting report had him with the potential to be a better reciever than king or rosario

I wonder if he is buried on the depth chart because of the guys in front of him, or it it is taking him longer to pick up the blocking or to becoming physically strong enough to make his blocks, espcially with the running game we have right now

I remember one pass thrown to him deep where he had the LB beat by 3-4 steps, and i think I've seen his jersey flash by on a rare occasion, but otherwise I have nothing

King is just the best blocking TE and we never throw to TEs.

Barnidge sure has speed

My only fear is him going somewhere else and he does a very decent job. Or be a surprise. We all know that always happen to the Panthers

Blocking I would assume is keeping him on the bench.

haha i remember that. This would be the reason why hes not starting, although when we first got him a lot of people were saying he could be a very good TE. Maybe over the off season he can get stronger and engage blocks better, he looks to be a Chris Cooley type TE correct?

future longsnapper, i think he did it in college, he may be the project to replace kyle. add in he could turn into a good te, and i think he sticks, and it was a warrented pick. still want chase coffman, but not happening now. also king only got in the last 1 falcon's game really, and that was when we had poo for te, not surprised he didnt crack the starting lineup. if he improves and becomes a better blocker than dante, he will jump him. fox loves to use the te to block.

He is just a rookie and the being a TE in collage and one in the NFL is a big step. He is playing ST and thats the first step in being a starter. King is the best a both blocking and receiving right now and thats why we see him so much but I will go out on a limb and say Barnidge will move ahead of Rosario because of his blocking next year sometime cause Rosario is horrible at it.

For the most part, Barnidge has done a solid job blocking all year. The reason he's not getting much burn on offense is that he has two solid guys in front of him. So, unless one of the other guys got injured or just stunk it up during the season (which neither did), Barnidge was never going to get on the field much on offense. He's going to have to earn it in TC and the pre-season next year (his injury in this year's camp hurt his chances as well).

With that said, theire is potential for him next year. While both King and Rosario are solid, neither are great, so with a strong off-season, it is possible Barnidge could leapfrog one or both. Will he? Who knows, but at this point it is far too premature to make any kind of realistic judgement on him.

Oh, and as for the statement of him long snapping, sure it's possible. However, despite him being listed as one pre-draft, he wasn't really a long snapper in college. He never even did it in a real game, he was just the backup/emergency LS.
