    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 gol 'darnit 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

    Re: real depth chart

    A couple of opinions regarding Shiancoe...

    Shiancoe hasn't exactly shown great hands with the Vikings (yet).
    I don't know what to say about his blocking as I didn't see him that much in the preseason games, but I think it's generally agreed around the NFL that Kleinsasser is about as fine a blocking TE as exists in the NFL.
    To this point, I think Naufahu Tahi has outplayed Shiancoe.
    Now, maybe that isn't a fair comparison, as Tahi is a FB and Shiancoe is a TE.
    But Tahi has done more when his number is called to impress me than Shiancoe has.
    Tahi has soft hands, is tough, and looks like he may be playing a bunch of 3rd down plays as a blocker and safety valve for TJack.

    Secondly, for all the hoopla when we signed Shiancoe about being a "downfield receiving threat TE", that didn't stop Childress from going out and signing Garrett Mills off waivers from the Patriots.
    Hmm, Mills is a downfield receiving TE threat...
    Think there could be a reason that the Vikings grabbed him?
    Like just perhaps, Shiancoe may not be all that Childress thought he was, or would be?
    SKOL VIKINGS!
