Well speaking about small percentages you are talking about one drop...
And he isn't in the same universe as T.O in regards to catches.
lol ok TWO DROPS, we aren't looking for him to be T.O., he's just a good Tight End.
Two drops in one game. I haven't seen the rest.
He's an above average Tight End and no we are not looking for him to be T.O but I never made that comparison.
ditch troupe bring in a good free agent TE or draft 3rd round keep scaife and hartstock for #2 & #3, they are solid in those spots but scaife is definately not the answer for a #1 TE. I don't think TO would be any good at TE anyway, i don't think he can block...
I am not sure how I feel about this. I go both ways. I mean, how many TE's are good. Almost none. So what does it matter. But at the same time, Fisher's offense has always been good when the TE was catching balls. So who knows what to think. Maybe we do need a good one. Maybe we don't. I am just not sure. So I think you have to solve the problem. I think you have to get a good one and then eliminate that concern.
Scaife is a good backup, but they should find someone who can be a real threat as a starter. He also isn't much of a blocker, though if it came down to finding a TE who could be a big contributor in the passing game versus a TE who could be a dominant run blocker, I'd sooner take a guy who can spread out defenses.
Sign scaife and then also sign lj smith. Hartsock is also a free agent so we need to sign him because he is such a good blocker..
That is part of the problem with TEs. It is hard to find a guy who can be both a dominant blocker and still contribute in the passing game. IMO if we get a guy who is a "big" contributer in the passing game but actually a liability in the running game with our QB, our style of offense I don't think it helps us that much. I'd like to see us find a guy who is a little better than Scaife in the passing game and a better blocker both if there is that guy out there.
Scaife a good backup? I think he is a good starter. Scaife is ranked 14th among all TEs in catches and 16th in yards. That on an offense that is one of the least prolific passing the ball. He is clearly above average as a pass receiver. Certainly he has a good relationship with vince.
