Your skepticism is understandable, grasshopper.

There are two ways to take this quote from John FitzPatrick.

On the difference in being a tight end in Coach Monken’s system versus prior offensive coordinators…
“I don’t want to compare Coach Monken, Coach [James] Coley’s and Coach [Jim] Chaney’s, but Coach Monken, along with the other two previous [Offensive Coordinator]’s, it’s just competitive. I am excited to play for him. He is a great OC, and it’s going to be a fun year with him.”

One is the young man does not wish to speak ill of the dead.

The other is he doesn’t think Monken’s gonna use the tight ends in the passing game, either.  We’re soon to find out which meaning applies.

    Seeing how Monken actually did use TEs in his previous stops to include OSU, Southern Miss, and Tampa, I’m gonna go with the former, not the latter.

    Oh, I think he will use them….just think it will be contingent of whether McKitty is healthy enough to play. Washington is still young, but will probably be worked in slowly this year.

    Then you have what is left of the tight ends….it will happen imo, probably just not as much as some wish in the first game.

    Good news is, we have plenty of options at WR compared to a year ago. Would just be happy for now to see whoever the QB is to go thru their progressions and hit the open man.

    But you may be right, for the first game if McKitty is not in there…..don’t look for too many or any play calls tor the TE as the first option.

    I’m sure they will be used as in there will be one on the field most plays. Until they are targeted in the passing game I’m just hopeful. At the end of the day I really don’t care who or how they score. Just win and I’m really easy to please on how you do it.

    Seems in looking at his college film he uses them as HBacks and puts them in motion a lot. It’s up to the QB to see what the motion does to the defense. Cook is going to really love Monkin’s O if Kirby lets him run it.
