I think it's a reasonable question... Why are we picking up all these tight ends? Like... what's the point? besides the fact that Shockey is almost always going to be injured.

welcome to B&G

to answer your question

we operate in whats basically a west coast offense

it calls for short passes to move us down the field

big targets give us more options in the short passing game

and yes.....we will spank the vikings

No I meant the "will we beat the Vikings" part. Just messin with ya uA! I think that age is starting to play a part in our TE lineup. Looks like the Saints are pushing the youth button to me.

CantonLegend you have shown me the light on how we play the game! THANK YA!

exile i'm beginning to see the same pattern as you... but isn't it a good thing to get some young guns under our wings? i mean technically we wont see them play for a few years.
