And the award for the position group having the best preseason goes to…

Let Brian Schottenheimer present the award.

““We like tight ends here, so we’re going to use them in different ways to keep people off-balanced by using them in different spots,” Schottenheimer said. “Those four guys have had maybe the best camp of everybody. Done a real good job. Again, from Jay Rome down to Jordan Davis, all those guys have done a good job.”

Between having a new offensive coordinator who loves utilizing the position and quarterbacks still getting their feet wet in the passing game, next to having ridiculous depth at tailback, that is a nice security blanket to be able to hang on to.

    Double TE’s on the field, one in the slot who can be “Mr. Security Blanket” for our QB (I see Blaze as the likely candidate for this) or going in motion to crack down on the line for trap blocking gets me all excited.

    “If we see a linebacker has come out to cover our tight end, that’s a win for us every time.”

    The 12 personnel sounds like it may be our base this year – 1 TE in tight and 1 TE split out, 1 Back, 2 WRs. Seems like a very easy pre-snap read for Schotty/QB/OL…use a LB to cover up the TE split out and take someone out of the box, or play some kind of zone concept with a DB/nickelback responsible for a TE who has 4-6 inches on him. Pick your poison.


    • Our base will always be an I. If the 12 is our base then we have no FB that can play and are in real trouble.

        Given some of the injuries at the position, I wouldn’t be shocked to see a bit more 12 formation until the FBs are healthy. Or one of the TEs flexes into a FB position (I know Hick has done some crosstraining), which could be pretty devastating combined with no huddle/tempo. Pound in the I, audible to 12 formation and go fast (until the lead is nice and big).

    Went back to see if my 9:24 AM post earlier (The Case for 10-2) beat the time of this post (misread it as learlier than posted). It was my only specific comment about the offense. Glad to see Schotty held it until after I posted.

    They are a wonderful mix of talent. They have speed, size and hands. A good TE is worth his weight in gold.

      This is what gives me the most confidence in Schotty as an OC, if NFL guys do anything well on offense it is create mismatches over the middle. Our backs and TEs will carry the load, both running and passing the ball.

    Did you get “….by using them in different spots.” ? That can be taken as 1) the “spot” during a needed pickup play where we can take advantage of their ability to take advantage, or 2) use them at differing positions like WR, FB, out of the tailback slot, throw a secondary pass to a RB after receiving a bubble pass to the sideline, etc.

    My goose pimples just had babies.
