    If he would have hit Shank when Shank was open that would have been another great use of the TE.
    Starting to see the TE come into play I think if only the OL would/could pass block on a consistent basis.

    No way in hell the Boars patched together DL should have given us that many fits last night.
    Poor poor showing by Birk and company IMHO.
    If Shank were starting to get more open and catch that would be an even greater use of the TEs
    Two issues with that.

    1.
    He was open, TJ was late with the throw.

    2.
    He, along with Klieny will never be able to get open when they have to stay in and block because our gol 'darnit OL can't protect the QB or open running lanes without thier help all the time.
    I understand that.

    But still he has been the letdown of the season so far.
    How so?

    He has been a solid pass/run blocker and hasn't had much of a chance to even run a route because of inept line play.
    Then add to the fact that for a lions share of the season our QB couldn't make one read, let alone a progression of reads that would allow a ball to be thrown his way on a consistent basis.

    How can you lay that on him?


    Is he supposed to block, tell the QB when to throw and run routes at the same time?
    When the ball has come his way he has caught it pretty consistently.

    As for the play last night when TJ threw to him late, if I were him, I would pull the young Jedi aside and remind him that if he wants to be protected he shouldn't lay him out for a defender on passes like that.

    Poor play by TJ not Shank my friend.
    I agree with Mrrdor here.
    Shank has played well this year.
    What you have to remember is TJ is a young QB.
    That being said, sopmetimes his reads may be a tad late.
    That is the difference of being open and not being open.
    Shank has been everything Chilly said he was.
    He has decent hands and has done a great job blocking.
    With some more experience from TJ as well as the front line I think you will get a different impression of Shank.

    I think that can be said of most of the players on this team, especially the TE's.
    Very unselfish group.
    Could you imagine Shockey on this team giving up catches to stay in and block.


    Hell hath no fury as a TE's scorn for OLmen who can't block.
    ;D

    Re: Jimmy Kleinsasser

    Im very happy we have Jimmy Kleinsasser, he is a class act and even restructered his contract to stay with the team this year.. Other than being a class act and a team player, the guy is also a beast and one of the best blocking tight ends in the league, he fits our offensive mentality and system perfectly.. True Viking!

    It was nice seeing Jimmy get a big gain, and not just a desperate 2 yard dumpoff thrown his way.

    That was a beautiful play.
    His hands were in great position and the catch was absolutely perfect.

    After that catch, the Bears fans in front of me kept chanting "We want to see more Jimmy"

    Jimmy's catch for 26 yards.
    I have not seen them throw him the ball in a long long time.
    When I saw him snag that baby I almost pooped myself I was screaming so loud.
    If that was you sitting behind me at the game, you just might have. I smelled something bad after that catch.
    Check your pants :P

    Re: Jimmy Kleinsasser


    I will be looking for more seam route's in the next few weeks as teams will be zone blitzing and continue to stack the box. I wondered why we hadn't done it sooner actually. It just gives D-coordinators something else to think about. I know Childress has more cards up his sleeve, and can't wait for the next surprise. Maybe a flea-flicker. Jimmy K is a team player and doesn't get enough credit for the non-glamorous things he brings to our offense. He's like another guard out there, who can make a catch when thrown to.
