    They are not going to throw to the TE's because they are not playmakeer. To me that is smart

    Not all teams feature tight ends in the passing game the way we have the last few years. Baker, Ingram, Hernandez, and Reed have spoiled us.

    Last year our best playmaker on either side of the ball was Reed. So we threw to him. This year our tight ends aren't playmakers. I still think they can be used as possession pass-catchers, but if they aren't playmakers don't use them as playmakers.

    For the record, Tevin Westbrook caught one pass for a yard or so against Toledo. I don't think we've had another TE catch this year. But our receivers involvement in the passing game has stepped way up from this point a year ago.

    I'd really like to see the two young guys get some reps at TE and see if they can make plays. A pass-catching TE is a great weapon for an inexperienced QB to lean on.

    I see 1 catch for 1 yard from Westbrook and nothing from Clay which isn't surprising. I think that's it.

    Maybe when they get off the IR you will see them play. Right now both are in boots. I doubt they are as good at making plays as Burton Dunbar and Patton

    Yes but a huge problem nonetheless. Players are supposed to develop and be useful.

    He could be 100 percent and they still wouldn't play him but he was in a boot last game. I saw a few writers tweet it. It says something about where he is on the depth chart when he is hurt and the staff or the football office doesn't say anything about it.

    We threw maybe 5 passes the whole second half, throws to the tight end is a moot point

    I respectfully disagree.....the Tight Ends serve multiple purposes. They can indeed block on running plays, but can also create a layer of defensive question marks. Are they there to block only, should they be covered by LB's, are they pulling guards, should we leave the middle of the field open, are they vialble altenatives or in the case of the Gators, heavily recurited decoys....... their value is underrated on any team, much like a FB on a team that wants to establish a smash mouth game. Options are just that options.........unless you choose not to use them......then they become obsolesence.

    I agree but the consensus from the fans and the coaching staff is our's can catch so why throw it to them?

    Obviously the "consensus" can be very wrong.
