Mo should be the starter rest of the season


Recommended Posts

Mo should keep starting and burton should earn his keep. If he shows to be better let him start but I don’t want Mo to be benched for him coming off injury and he hasn’t shown nothing up to this point. Mo is the better blocker and is competent as a pass catcher. Make trey earn his keep just don’t give it to him

Ok. I’m sold. Said it in the game day thread, and I’ll say it here too:

 

Mo > Doyle > > > > Burton

 

Let Mo take the Lion’s share of snaps. He’s earned it. 

its easy to see yet we didn't do anything for him after the TD kinda annoyed me

Or outside the red zone. I don’t get it. Big bodied dude, hands don’t seem to be an issue, let him box a guy out and toss him a pass on those 3rd downs we seem to struggle with. 
 

But this is also the same staff that gets off on pulling the best RB we have out of the game in favor of much less effective runners as much as they can, so...

Rivers is starting to bond with him. The last time I saw this was Rivers with Antonio Gates.

 

Something about TEs with a basketball background. 

 

He's able to box out and use his basketball skills (leaping) to get open

There was a graphic during the game that compared their measurables, of which were crazy close. Not saying he is the next Gates but there is no way that Rivers hasn't noticed. He did get out jumped today by a smaller cb on the near int in the endzone. Climb the ladder big boy!

Was surprised by the lack of targets today

 

Want to see Mo MAC!!!

I've got to think that Pagano analyzed the game film from our prior 2 victories and likely committed some defenders to ensure that he didn't run wild against them. Philip doesn't often try to force it to guys who are double or triple covered, because that usually means that another receiver is single covered by someone a little lower on the depth chart.

I’m loving Mo right now and definitely for fantasy!   Doesn’t matter what happened last year or year before.  See the Chargers with a new QB and Keenan Allen this year- its not working.  Guys I’ve not heard of this past weekend getting TD’s.  I remember watching an undrafted FA Gates first year- it all comes down to trust with the QB.  Not sure if Mo has previous basketball experience but give him credit he’s a stud!

Well...Colts used Mo less against the Bears with Burton back in the line up.  I hope that doesn’t become the trend. Rivers has developed a nice chemistry with Mo.  I just trust Mo more than I do Burton at this point. Mo has the potential to gives us Ebron like production in the red zone if the Colts play him like they should.

This might come as an absolute shock to some people on this forum, but you're actually allowed to have more than 1 effective tight end.  It's even highly encouraged.

 

Anyway, glad MAC's stepped up.  Between him and Doyle we probably don't have a problem at TE

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.

Yep.  Doyle is better out of the reserve role because he's getting older and always had a bit of trouble taking TE1 minutes.

Doesn’t make sense how we quit using him after that TD. I saw him in the backfield alit blocking. Just throw it to him and let him go get it. We tried to force it to Burton a lot today.

Naturally Rivers was going to make an extra effort to involve the 7 year vet.   

Did you expect him not to?

Moe, Jack and Trey. 

Seems like a pretty good UDFA TE room to me considering what some thought at the start of the season. 

There, fixed it.

 

Btw, Togiai is also a UDFA.

    • I didn't listen to the link, but I don't believe Indy pushed him out. I just think Rivers was done and was kind enough to tell the Colts as early as he did (and not pull a Luck)    1) He's already been talking about wanting to coach his kid in high school football, (high school only last 4 years) 2) Franchise LT just quit  3) Your arm is nowhere near what it used to be    Plus, I've been to San Diego a few times, and boy is it beautiful. Indigrayapolis pales in comparison.  
    • Maybe it's TY posturing, but I think people are reading into it too much.    I believe his numbers were down because Rivers didn't have the arm for the deep game (took too long for passes to get there) and it took awhile for him and Rivers to get on the same page. If they get a QB with an arm (Stafford, or even Eason) those deep shots will be there again.    TY can clearly still get open. He might've lost a step on his blazing speed, but he is still quite fast. They'd be dumb not to bring him back. Especially with how weak the Colts WR position is.  
    • Looking at our wide receiver group, If Hilton does sign elsewhere, we would have to move Pascal to be our 1 and Pittman our 2 and Campbell Slot with Patmon and anyone else we draft or bring in as reserves. I would be on board with Hilton signing a 2 year deal to retire a colt with a deal something like 2 yrs 14 Million and focus on our TE, DE, LT, CB, QB positions with the draft and free agency. We can't forget we need to lock up Leonard and Smith and that will easily chew up 20-25 million between the two. Ballard will def have to work his magic
    • I sincerely hope not, but this is a bit ominous. I think he said his next contract would be his last and he WANTED to play for the Colts, but it takes 2 sides to make it work etc. I would not feel great about seeing TY playing in any other jersey, even if only for a year or two.... He still has the juice, he might not be the bonafide #1 anymore, but he is a high level number 2 still and worth every penny of around $8-$10 million i'd say.  Do the right thing Ballard and bring this man back for 1 or 2 more years.
