    What now for Jimmy?

    Now that we have Richardson at fullback and a good tight end in Wiggins, where does that leave Jimmy. Will he be playing at all. Hopefully a lot of 2 tight end sets maybe? I have always liked him not only because he is from Nodak but because when he has been given the chance, he has done well and he is a hard worker.

    He should still get on the field we can use him and Richardson at the same time to either further overload the left side or to help run on the right side.

    This is his second year back from the knee injury and he should do well, if the team didn't have plans to use him with his salary I think he would have been gone. Looking forward to seeing him rumbling over AJ Hawk

    Re: What now for Jimmy?

    I think we could use him as a 2nd TE or when Richardson needs a break at FB. I hope we continue to use because he is one of my favorite players!



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    As long as his knee stays healthy, I'm positive that we will see a lot of him.

    Don't worry about Jimmy K. He will play.

    As far as the 2-tight end set. I posed that question when we 1st signed Richardson or Goodspeed.

    Del had a good answer to that as to why he felt we wouldn't run it.

    I'll have to see if I can dig it up.

    And here it is;

    Remember ladies ... WCO and pro set formations. Fullback and two TE's being the base formation the others are developed off of. "random to be named" rb, fb, wiggy on the weak side and Kleiny on the strong. Look out opposing LB's ... it's a match up thing. If you send both out in pass patterns in middle seams and have Goodspeed block to the strong side, either TE will have a huge advantage in most situations.
    There are actually very few two TE base formations in most WCO.

    Most common is a 2 wideout set with 1 Tight end and both a half back and a fullback in the backfield.

    If you wanted to lineup another TE you would have to sacrifice one of your RB's and most of the time the FB is sacrificed because in the WCO the drops are so short you would rather have the better hands of the HB and the speed.

    I imagine you will be seeing a lot of HB + FB sets with only one tight end, in fact I would be very surprised if you ever see two TE's in out new offense.

    That says to me one of two things:
    A)Kliensasser is gone
    B)The new guy was signed for depth because we are losing a good run blocker in Moe Williams.



    Pro Set actually rarely has 2TE's as well. The only one I can think of is Pro-Set Power where you only have 1 wideout.

    I think the kiss of death for JimmyK is not the addition of Richardson nor the switch to the WCO. It's the Grossman Chevrolet commercials.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
