Barnidge Apparently Not Injured

83 posts in this topic

When have you seen him in a vertical passing game like we have now ?

His limited sample size shows a good amount of long catches. That's all I really remember him doing was getting some long receptions that year.

Jason Carter

yeah that's the guy.

also apparently he tore his ACL against washington in the '08 preseason so perhaps it wasn't a performance thing.

The Tolbert signing basically means we're moving away from that

We hardly used a fb last year. If he's going to see the field a lot this year I don't see how there will be room for a #2 TE.

always see his name on the depth chart....never on the field....this guy is mr irrelavent...

You saw him as a back-up TE when we played Foxball. He is NOT a big, blocking TE. He is a pass catching TE. That is something that Fox never used nor valued.

In Chud's system, the TE is another receiving threat.

You CANNOT judge his ability as a pass catching TE by looking at his statistics while playing for Fox.

You have to get outside of that box.

With Chud, you need to expect the unexpected. There is NO TELLING what types of formations we will see this season. Just let it happen and enjoy the ride.

anyone else think that barnidge and olsen are very similar...

they are about the same size and they both run and catch in the same way

maybe your right but he still hasn't done anything. so looking at his body of work leave me to conclusion that we could be fine with or without him.

Not unless we signed another TE.

Chud's system last season utilized two good pass catching TE's. Unless he changes drastically, I would expect much of the same.

Therefore, a 2nd TE is a necessity....not a luxury.

totally agreed.

now tolbert.....that's a luxury.

chud and the O will build on what they did last year. keep what worked and add new wrinkles (more pages in the playbook and a pass catching bowling ball).
