Gary Barnidge signing with Cleveland

Our starting tight end was our number 2 receiving leader and #6 in the NFL in catches for tight ends. And he only missed being our #1 receinver by four catches. We didn't ignore the tight end, our offense from top to bottom was just so incompetent for the first half of the season, that it appeared we were ignoring everyone.

I don't really look at stats. I just remember multiple games where Greg would make huge catches and be on fire and for whatever reason they wouldn't utilize him anymore.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
