Didn't we get Myers for less than the market paid Bennett? If so, it was definitely a win for us, leaving some bucks to be spent elsewhere.
    I feel like Bennett tended to drop balls in big situation ...or at least disappeared...as Opposed to the way Ballard always seemed to make a big catch......numbers wise they were pretty even....it just seemed like Ballards meant more...... I think Myers numbers will end up being very similar to his 2 predecessors because that just seems to be how the tight ends fits into Gilbride's system

      i agree and still feel that way. do u have a link for that clip with myers receptions? could u tell me off ur head if he had any receptions of 20 yds or more (where the ball traveled 20 yds or more) i think i read that of all his 80 plus catches, none were for more thna 20 yds in the air

        well dont forget, bennett set a giant record for tds in his first 3 games as a giant. he was killing it until he hyper extended that knee. he had that span where he was still contributing but just not at that pace for the first 3 games. i feel he ended up having a solid yr and woulda had a crazy 2nd yr. what can ya do...

          I don't think there were any 20+ yard catches. But that's a scheme thing too. He really doesn't run deep at all. Just crossing routes over the middle about 5-10 yards deep

            I agree he defiantly contributed ...it just never seemed like it was in big spots in the game....I am not going by stats just by what my eyes were telling me..

              Tebow is cheating himself of a chance to be a respected, successful position player with his stubborn refusal to consider a switch from QB!
              He comes off as a bit of a hypocrite for allowing his pride to lead him down a dead end street as an NFL QB.
              Having a closed mind to change for the better is not a very christian attitude!

                yeah i imagine we try to use him in the mold of a Witten type TE. Im not saying we wont target him vertically but I just dunno how much to expect we see of that. i expect he'll be a checkdown option a ton of routes

                    I see Tebow as a RB or TE. Maybe QB if he went to the right team MAYBE... now that we are on the Tebow subject lol...

                      Myers and Robinson are pretty solid dude. I don't think there is anything to worry about....

                      As for the Pats... hahahaha but seriously, dang! what if Hernandez actually killed that dude!

                      Stand with Cruz!
