The Tight Ends

As I tweeted yesterday...I saw more passes caught by the TE's at practice then all of last year.

Shockey is a man possessed and kept making plays...on one bad pass, that was likely to be picked off, he played pass defense and tomahawk chopped the DB breaking up the INT.

Shockey still has alot of gas left in the tank. Not as good as he was but I'm sure Coach will straighten him out and maximize his potential on the field.

That's all that we need. Hopefully, Olsen hangs around for awhile. Kid impresses the poo out of me.

the TEs are going to be huge for us this year. we have a lot of receiving talent there. add to it our stud RBS...all four of them and smitty plus the young talent beside him.

gahhh....i can't wait to see what they will do.

As much of a jerk as he was portrayed by our fans when he was on other teams, I'm sure he's going to be a great addition here...

Just having a reliable 2nd TE (Olsen) to rotate in will make Shockey better. I agree he still has a lot to bring to the table. Just hope he can stay healthy!

I'm excited because we have the potential to have a really well rounded offense for once. Good O-line (once they gel together), outstanding backs, solid receivers (wide outs AND tight ends!), the only variable is how well our QB will play.

I remember when shockey was signed and everyone said he was washed up and I was saying he would play with a lot of intensity and surprise people. surprise surprise. We have really good safety options for cam this year.

Our playaction should be devastating.

That's one thing that did not make sense with Fox. He wanted to pound the run, but he never really relied on PA pass to the tight ends like many of the other great running teams have.

I think the way the offense is constructed is going to be really helpful to a young athletic QB.

Look down the field on deeper routes for Gettis/Smitty and if safetys drop back, then dump down to the tight ends or running backs, and if/when the LB's drop back Cam can run/scramble for a couple of yards if nothing is open. Vick/Rodgers/Big Ben all used this very much in their rookie years.

Olsen the second TE? Hah. I bet he makes it out of camp as the top TE.
