    Re: real depth chart

    I still don't see why everyone gets wrapped around the axel (so to speak) over who starts and who doesn't.

    Just about everybody (Except maybe the QB) will rotate in and out depending on situations/down and distance.

    Who cares who starts, really?

    But not in Madden


    Thats exactly right....we do probably get wayyy to caught up in something like first and second on the depth chart when it doesn't really matter for most positions.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    This is a pretty good spot for updated depth charts.

    I read an article in the Tribune (it's posted on this site somewhere) that Shank has kind of "dropped off the radar" and Klink is the man.

    I hope we didn't pay Shank all that money just to come in a few plays a game with the hopes of throwing him the ball.
    Can't Shank block or what?

    I hate to say it but I saw this coming all along. Shank just has not impressed at all. If you still think he is a new "weapon" which will be used to stretch the field...well, you may still be right, but he hasn't shown anything in his NFL career to suggest he is anything more than a solid backup.

    What TE did stand out during pre-season?
    I don't think any of them were really used for passing were they?

    One TE has the role of providing great blocking and running underneath routes, providing a safety valve for the QB. The other was brought in to stretch the field vertically and be a good blocker as well. Let's just say I think the former will be better in his role.

    Come on Marr, if Shank was doing what we brought him in to do, do you really think he would have been so damn silent during camp and preseason? Look at how Wade came in. He took a kind of leadership role even though he is pretty young, and developed a rapport with TJ. He was all over the news in Minny during camp. Has Shiancoe done anything close to this?

    He still has a chance to redeem himself, but people were speaking here like Shiancoe would be a great passing option for TJ, and also one who could block well enough that Sauce would never see the field. People were talking about trading Kleinsasser because we got this guy, yet Sauce is going to start, or at least see plenty of playing time. I don't know what else is needed to say he has underacheived/disappointed up to this point.

    I wasn't disagreeing with you my friend.
    As a matter of fact I am agreeing with everything you said and then just posted.

    As a matter of fact, I am speculating (heavens forbid) that maybe they don't have a plan to use him.

    Can't believe I just typed that.
    ;D
