Mo should be the starter rest of the season

He blocks just as well as Doyle and is a much better threat in the passing game. His Patience and hard work is paying off :thmup:

doyle is still better as a route runner and has better hands.  When mo lines up he is usually a run blocker so the last two weeks he is not getting as much attention .   doyle is more like a dallas clark type tight end while mo is a run blocker who can catch .  I need more then two good weeks to start him over doyle who has been a pro bowler and good for this team for last couple years.   I like the idea of the two tight end sets with both of them.

I disagree another thing he has over Doyle is he's more durable. Having Doyle get less snaps will help him in the long run less of a chance of getting injured again.

I don't need to see him against a good D to prove xyz.  Im pretty certain he'll still ball.

He's not going to all of a sudden crap his pants and start dropping the football.

He's got really good hands and his the biggest dude on the field against just about any D. 

He'll win the 50/50 ball against pretty much any DB.

Doyle and Dallas Clark are absolutely nothing alike. Their similarities begin and end at "TE".

I see what he means though. Doyle historically has been used more down the field than what you would expect a TE to do. To me Clark was always more of a beefed up slot receiver than a true TE.

In what way is that similar to Doyle? He is an old school inline blocker with strong hands and below average speed.

 

Doyle's longest career catch is 28 yards, on a tricky play this year, week 1. Clark caught a 28+ yarder seemingly weekly.

 

Don't get me wrong, I love Doyle, but he is what he is.

This is exactly what I saw he’s a big dude who at full speed is someone you don’t want to hit plus he can easily manhandle dline men in the run game

:agree: i just have one question tho when he caught that big pass and was in the wide open area how come he didn't hit those burners cause it looked as tho he were confused for a moment before the the safety came and he went down. it was a nice catch and play but kinda odd

Just as I said in the first line, Doyle has been used more down the field than what a typical TE would be. Didn’t say they were identical, just that I understand where they were coming from that Doyle has been leaned on more as a receiver than Mo has been used as a blocker.

Again, we’ve always gotten good results from Mo. I can’t recall an instance off the top of my head where he has caused a glaring mistake that has hindered us. 
 

Should we vault him to #1 status over Doyle? It’s still early for that, but the way things are going it doesn’t appear to be out of the question down the line.

If that's the measuring tape, I compare Doyle to Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis haha

The interception against the Vikings quickly comes to mind, but Rivers kept going to him and he more than made up for it.

Okay.

 

Tyreek Hill and Michael Thomas are both great WR. Are they the same? Do they have similar skill sets?

 

Similar vs Different. This is the point. Not good or bad, just different.

 

Doyle and Dallas Clark are different. Very, very different.

So let me get this straight. Me saying that I understood where the poster said comparing (as it relates to Doyle and Cox) Doyle being more akin to Clark has got you this worked up?

 

Its an opinion man. Relax.

Yes, it's an opinion, a wild one. And you are more than entitled to it.

Good to see the progress but I think we need to slow our roll a bit here. He's made some plays but majority of his plays are coming off dump off situations, which isn't really any of his own doing, teams are just not seeing him as a threat yet. More then a handful of his catches this year there hasn't been a defender within 5 yards. I'll be more interested if he can produce when teams start to pay attention to him a bit. 

 

That being said, I do love him in certain sets. Would love to see him on a goal line fade out wide sometimes.

Yup, he needs to go talk to Rathman about lowering his shoulder and getting up the field. In his postgame interview he said he was totally surprised there was no one there to tackle him. :lol:

Needs to polish his RB skills!

His reaction to his newfound success is refreshing!

    • I remember it like yesterday, then read the reasons shortly after the selection, and they made sense.  Edge played at The U, which ran the stretch, and the Colts were running it as well.  Edge also had fewer miles on his legs, due to being in running back by committee for most of his career there.  Lastly, Edge was the better receiver and pass blocker.    I sometimes wonder if Ditka thought about making that insane offer to the Colts first? 
    • I don't care how he tested (especially this year, when all those pro-day tests are under serious question)... I care how he plays and how he looks on tape. Players that didn't test off-the-charts are some of the best playmakers in football - Mahomes ran 4.82 with 30 inch vertical. I'd take him over any of the best athletes in the league making plays on the move. With that said... I don't see Mac Jones in similar light even though they tested very similarly. I don't think he's stuck in mud in the pocket. But I do not think he has enough mobility to scramble when needed. He will be one of the worst scrambling starting QBs in the league IMO. I think him scrambling will be extremely rare in the league. I just don't think he has the mobility and physical talent to do it while launching the ball downfield.    I like him too. But there are levels to this thing. I like him as a late first-second round QB. I think he can be a good productive QB in the right system(Shannahan system for example). I don't like him enough to give up 3 1st round picks + 3d for him, though. This is my whole contention here. He's just not THAT type of player IMO. Lance and Fields are. 
    • You may end up being right, but I hope that we add some talent here   As a HUGE Ohio State fan....  I WANT Lewis to step up....  He seemed to improve a bit, but, in my opinion there needs to be a talent influx on the DE   I have a recurring nightmare of Patrick M........ getting 30 seconds to throw...
    • Also, just because I'm starting to feel some kind of way about this, Mac Jones is getting short changed these days. He's a really good prospect, and people are treating him like he's an unathletic bum with no arm.   Blake Bortles went #3 in 2014. Sam Darnold went #3, and Josh Rosen went #10 in 2018. None of them were unable to succeed due to athletic shortcomings. Mac Jones tested just as good, if not better, than all of them. (Bortles was actually pretty good as a scrambler, despite his mediocre testing.) I already used the Jared Goff comparison; he went #1 in 2016, and went to the SB in 2018. Mac Jones tested as good as Goff.   He doesn't have super speed or quickness, but he's not stuck in mud. He moves well enough to stay alive in the pocket, and he has enough movement ability to scramble when needed. He doesn't have a cannon of an arm, but his arm is not deficient. He's very good from the pocket, he processes well, not a one-read thrower, very accurate, and tough.    If Bortles, Darnold and Goff could go top five in the last 7 years, so can Mac Jones. Of course, he needs to be better than them to live up to that draft status, but again, their issues weren't about lacking athleticism.    Just saying, again, the anti-Mac stuff is getting a little overboard. I like Fields and Lance better, but Mac Jones being desirable isn't entirely outrageous.
    • I am a little confused?  So you are advocating a less talented edge at 21 than more talented OT?  Or am I just reading this incorrectly?  Because I believe the difference in OT quality and Edge quality at 21 clearly favors the OT.
