This is another reason why I wanted to keep Jeff King, who can block very well and catch. Ben Hartsock ain't gonna cut it.

Actually if you look at PFF, King has always been in the red when it comes to everything. He was overrated as a blocker and a pretty bad receiver. However what this does mean is we are going to see more receivers in the game. That means Tutu because watching this season, Tutu is the only one of these second tier receivers to play a snap on offense.

They wanted a blocking TE, neither Banridge or Olsen can block that well, plus Hartsock signed a two year deal BEFORE Barny got hurt.

Dude Barny was having a great camp. He would have for sure made the team. Look how we kept Brockel. That would have been Barnidge's spot. Plus, Barnidge is if not the best, then one of the best special teamers on the team. We really miss him on that unit.

And if they really wanted a blocking TE, they'd be using him more.

Yep expect to see fewer two TE sets.

Barnidge would still be on th roster. He's an ideal fit for this offense and can block effectively as well. Richie Brockel got the roster spot instead when Barnidge went down, he's a poor mans version of Gary.

Maybe Lafell will step up and not have to rely on the the TEs as much. Throw to DWill more!

Naanee can play tight end for us. But then who will be our go to receiver?

It seems this is just what this board wants. More playing time for Lafell. I'm sure they will run much more 3 WR sets instead of 2 TE sets that they have been doing.

If Hartsock starts, we may see more running plays being called...

Who cares we should run the ball a lot more this game! No need to see how elite Det front 4 really are.
