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 think Frank and the OC knew his strengths and weaknesses and didn't put in too many plays that they knew Rivers would have a hard time executing.  They did let him take a deep(ish) shot sometimes.  I'm not sure they were overly conservative at all.
    • Great sumary, 100% accurate.
    • Rodgers only has himself to blame for not running that ball in on 3rd down. He had a clear lane to the EZ.   The decision to go for it should have been mostly irrelevant because 4th down wouldn’t have happened if he did run. And if he doesn’t get there...it’s going to be 4th and short...which makes the case for going for it even stronger.   Rodgers is a great QB...but he made a critical mistake.
    • You seem bitter after a tough loss.   New Orleans is likely to lose Brees (if not a retirement in the coming weeks, likely after next year).  That leaves Tampa Bay, a team you guys could have very well beaten yesterday (dominated time of possession, won the turnover battle, etc... that TD at the end of the half and a few other plays really changed that game, though if you looked at that stat sheet aside from the score, you'd probably have thought GB won).  The rest of the NFC South isn't too big of a threat in the next couple years.  The NFC East is a dumpster fire.  The NFC North is a division you should win for a few more years if Rodgers is your QB.  The NFC West seems like the toughest overall division in the NFC, but they underperformed this year - the Seahawks seem to be on the decline, I don't think Goff is good enough to get the Rams over the hump on an annual basis, not really sure what to think of the 9ers and the Cardinals have a good young coach and QB.    No reason why Rodgers can't at least get back into the SB in the coming years in GB.  The other top QBs in that conference (Brees and Brady) are on the wrong side of 40.  Wilson, Murray and a couple other QBs seem to be a level below those two and Rodgers.  Matt Ryan's getting old, Dak Prescott's coming off a bad injury, and after those 2 I see a pretty big decline in NFC QBs (especially if Stafford leaves the conference).     The AFC on the other hand had 4 QBs who were 26 or younger in the divisional round.  It looks like the Chiefs and Bills with Mahomes and Allen are going to be very tough for a long time coming.  Herbert looks to be the real deal with the Chargers as does Burrow with Bengals, the Ravens and Titans have ridiculous running games and solid Ds and likely will be threats for years to come.  Really, aside from having a hard time believing a few teams (i.e., NYJ, HOU, DEN) will be any good in the foreseeable future (I'd throw Jax in there, but who knows if they get Trevor).  Otherwise, I can see perennial powerhouse PITT declining as Roethlisberger ages/retires.     Overall, I think Rodgers has a much better shot of getting to the SB if he stayed in Green Bay than if he came to the AFC.  The AFC, at least for the next few years, seems like a much stronger conference than the NFC overall and has multiple up-and-coming QBs, whereas several of the top dogs in the NFC have QBs who will likely be retiring before A-Rod does, and definitely before A-Rod is 'washed up'.
    • Brady's reputation as the best playoff QB in the history of the NFL is pretty much already set in stone.  There are ootner QB who can compete in terms of regular season performance -- Manning, Rodgers, Mahomes-- but in terms of doing what is necessary to get to the playoffs and then perform at a high level once there, the only guy who comes close at the moment is #18 and even Mr Manning is a clear second place finisher.
