Why Do We Need A Te Again?


Recommended Posts

It has gotten to a situation where there are so many players on the roster right now that somebody will be selected or cut.

Why do we need them? I dunno, it is rather confusing at time between a TE or Slot WR ya know. At least for me either way. I think it boils down when it comes to categories where the tools that each have when it comes to blocking and schemes and such things.

I honestly don't know. Some may argue that Matt Ryan's numbers fell off without TE Tony Gonzalez, but that can't be write, considering that the O-line just sucked changed all that stuff.

Slot WR? TE? I guess those things depends on how you define them perhaps or how they are used in various offenses. TE's can be called SLOT WR's. Or used in the same way. At least from what I have heard.

No we DO NOT NEED A TE, Falcons have several on the roster now, they will either make the REAL roster or they will not. We shall see........

We improved from pathetic to mediocre at TE. This team had a lot of holes, Quinn et al have done a nice job addressing bigger ones, but you can't reasonably expect to fix everything in one offseason.

Bottom line, this is a team headed in right direction and if (a big if) it stays healthy that can make some noise next year

Because all the TE on our roster are garbage. Look for the Falcons to take one early in the draft next year.

Tamme has been in the League a long time... Hardly call him Garbage... I think you need to watch his play before you Trash anyone. Tamme has been Solid for Manning his Entire Career. He's what Ryan needs....Moeaki is also Solid. You need to do your research before you trash someone you have no info about. There's a reason Quinn brought Them in and lets not forget We kept Toliolo for a reason. He did great filling in at RG. Im not going to say he won't be cut after the final cuts but he has skill... We are solid at TE... for a couple years at least.

Matt Ryan had better numbers last year then the last year with Tony G or around the same numbers. He was under 500 yards of breaking 5k yards and becoming only the 6th qb ever to do that. That was under constant pressure... over 60% completion percentage and still being sacked 3rd most in the nfl the 1st 3 quarters of the season. The Line was pretty solid the last quarter... sadly it was a quarter to late. The two rookies stepped up and impressed. Got better numbers the our Vets on the lines...

Our TE's are pretty bad, but those in the draft were really bad too, so we'll roll with who we have. They're good enough for this year, glad we didn't reach for anyone.

Nope Tamme is Solid and might be the starter... I believe well run more TE sets... If either of these guys were bad then Quinn wouldn't have brought Moeaki with him and Tamme would have remained a FA. SMH.

They aren't horrible, they're just... average. Which is fine, not every position can be better than that. Of course Tamme is the starter, who's his competition? I like Lolo but he's a better #2 for blocking purposes, Moeaki... I really don't like Moeaki.
