Deehan is going to be awesome
Agreed, Lockridge to the slot. And hope Thornton is a big time player.
the TE position has been a mystery to me in the Hawk era. Geer makes plays all day in Year 1 win over ISU and doesn't see the ball for the next 3 weeks.
No doubt. The huge catch Geer had at the start of the NU game last season got me out of the seat a little bit. I kept thinking where the hell has that been all season? I looked it up and Geer basically had the same amount of catches in his freshman year as he has had in his sophomore/junior seasons combined. Very strange.
i guess the easy answers are 1. blame Helfrich or 2. had to keep the TE's in for pass protection (what little there was of it).
but, i don't get it. i have in my mind a pretty solid correlation between Buff W's and the TE getting touches the last 3 seasons.
Agreed with Geer, but he was also injured for some of his sophomore or junior years, I can't remember.
Mick is right as well, but I'd also like to add that throwing to the TE usually requires a taller QB or better passing lanes to go over the middle.
With the hope that we go to a more run-oriented team then it should open up a lot of opportunities for the TEs. It'll keep the LBs on their toes as they have to quickly determine if the TEs are blocking or going out for a pass. Given that we are having problems at depth at WR the TEs are going to determine whether we win 10 (or come close to it) or not, imo.
