Tight Ends

Very happy to see our tight ends make some plays today. If we can get production from our tight ends it takes some sting away from lacking some explosive wide receivers. I watched bits and pieces of the game. I know it’s early and might be a hot take but Woods has the chance to become a top tight end in this league in my humble opinion.

 

Which by the way, if Pierce can continue to improve and become a reliable target for us, our receiving corp wouldn’t be all that bad with him and Pittman.

On that pass to Pierce that Ryan threw from the endzone in the 2nd Q, MAC was wide open.  Pierce made a great grab but he was covered.

 

They did go back to MAC later, but I'm sure they'll look at that one in the film room and run it again.

I feel good about our TE room.

 

Really like what Woods and Granson brings.

 

Alie-Cox - haven't heard his name much, which can be good and bad.

I'm still not sold on Granson, but he's made some plays, so we'll see.

 

With as much praise as Ogletree was getting in the offseason, ahead of Woods, I'm excited to see him back next season and hopefully have an even stronger TE room.

I know his SPT presence is good enough, hopefully he can settle in as number 3 TE.

 

Think he has been running #2 TE snaps but a 2 TD performance by Woods and stellar SPT performance by Granson should flip those roles.

 

Ogletree could make it interesting next year. I know it is early but if Mo Alie-Cox doesn't start making more of impact on the games, his contract might be expendable come next year.

MAC is the best blocker of the bunch, which is keeping him out as a target for passplays.

Fair point. The line needs to block better to open MAC up. The one noticeable first down catch he had the line was successful.

I always felt like MACs contract was setup so they could get out of it after this year. He is guaranteed 2.4m of his 5.3m salary next year so it could go either way. Basically a cheap hedge to see if he can be a solid 1TE. I think we will see all three of our TEs contribute through the year and someone will establish themselves as #1.

 I would like to see MAC line up in the backfield and get the handoff once.   I know it will never happen.

That would be the world’s slowest developing play.

I'd prefer MAC as QB sneak with inches to go. He gets YAC. 

Better than Hines up the middle, or a bad timing (early jump) JT.

Granson played a nice game and made some key plays on ST. Got the muffed punt then downed the ball on the 1 on the next punt.


Jacob Tamme is what Granson reminds me of. Jelani Woods has Antonio Gates potential, IMO.

We can only hope! In his younger days Gates was absolutely uncoverable, with terrific hands that could catch any ball near him no matter how hard  it was thrown.

On the other hand, Jacoby Brissett is what 31 out of 32 on QB sneaks this year in 3 games?? He sure learnt the art of QB sneak from Tom Brady. Browns are getting their money's worth for the backup QB to make up for that ridiculous contract for Watson. :)

We need to build the momentum for Pierce and Woods if we want a chance. Hopefully Woods takes more of Mo's snaps sooner than later. Mo may be an ok blocker but he is not a good receiver at all. Way too slow, and doesn't have the most reliable hands.

I think the TE room is okay. I’m not sold on Granson. He’s dropped a couple and he doesn’t add anything dynamic to the offense. MAC is not a number 1 TE. It’s a shame we didn’t get to see much of the kid from Youngstown. I’d say we should keep adding bodies there. I think Woods can be really good. Not top 5 TE in the league good, but top 10.

I'm sure MAC can manage a sneak. He's a good blocker, and has had good YAC receiving. I'd be OK with Nelson or Raimann on sneaks lol....
