haha!! i counted 6 panthers lmao

In just his second year and Jimmy is probably one of the best TE's in the league, the guy is a beast, love the fire and and aggressiveness he brings to the offense

Thing is, he's only going to get better. I'm starting to get concerned though, more often than not it takes 2-3 defenders to bring him down. He's taking a beating. There are times when he should try and get that extra 2-3 yards but like Emmitt Smith once stated you have to know when it's over.

He's getting a lot of passes that Colston was getting before the injury. This will even out some in the next few games.

We need to get him some help because our offense puts TE's in a position to get wrecked each week. We need our O-line to step up and give Brees a few extra tenths to find WR's or we're gonna need a new hat (Bullwinkle reference, for those who're scratching their heads).

Here is the deal.

Who do you put on Jimmy?

Teams haven't figured out who or how to cover him. He is faster and more athletic and most if not no LB can cover him. So obviously he causes a mismatch right from the start. Guess what happens when they put a corner on him... Size advantage Jimmy and good luck tackling him.

Its not our OL line problem its their defense problem.

As soon as you double him, imagine Ingram or Sproles or even Mechem or Henderson running loose. Right now it is to our advantage while teams try and figure out what to do it will open up other areas of our offense.
