    The title says it all. Hasselbeck found ways to get the TE's involved in the offense. Have we even targeted Craig Stevens or Taylor Thompson this year? Why don't we check down and let the big guys fight for the first down? We have faced plenty of 3-4 defenses where this would fit. I'm no QB in the NFL or Offensive Coordinator, but this could help all aspects of our offense.

    I'm pretty sure they are both worthless. That's what we get for drafting a blocking TE in the 3rd round and a DE in the 4th round that we make play TE.

    Stevens isn't worthless. He has good hands for such a big guy and has proven himself to be a competent pass catching TE in the past few years.

    No he hasn't.

    Look at his lifetime stats in college and pro. He catches .5 balls a game on average.

    Whoop-t-doo. Any free agent off the street can replicate his catching success.


    And if he's such an amazing blocker than why does our run game totally blow???

    Hasselbeck actually rarely threw to TE's, but yes ours are M.I.A

    Walker has been good though.
