The tight end competition appears to be the most wide open competition for the Green Bay Packers entering training camp. We take a look at the suspects for the starting job.

Taylor's had his run. He can make the team if Lyerla melts down, OR if there's yet another devastating injury. And what are the odds of THAT?

Quarless, Bostick, Rogers, Lyerla, and Ryan Taylor for special teams. Bostick and Rogers are no more than large receivers who can't block. Quarless is a blocker that sometimes catches a pass with his stone hands. Our best prospect for the future is Lyerla who can do everything. Talent is there in a body that supports a bucket head. Hopefully the kid can get his shit together.

Author of that article must be 10 years old,
Making that comment about Stoneburner.
[laughing] (It was funny but just a little childish)

Big question right now(other than Finley's status), is Quarless going to be ready?

I see Quarless(if healthy), Taylor, Bostic and Rodgers as locks.

Not sure if there is room this year for 5 TE's, so Stoneburner and Lyerla may be fighting for that 5th spot or a spot on the PS.

26th can't come soon enough, so this all starts to work itself out.

I think McCarthy has a very different opinion...

ESPN said:
McCarthy call Bostick the team's best blocking tight end before a foot injury ended his season in Week 15.


And Rodgers has blocked in college, he wasn't that good at it, but I believe a number of stories have come out through out the years that with the limited time college coaches get with their players, they're teaching them to be active in routes and pass catching and don't normally teach them how to block nearly as much. And the biggest challenge is learning how to do it and getting adjusted to it... I think Rodgers (like Bostick) can learn how to do it better with time.

So the "bucket head" undrafted player that "can do everything" is a better prospect than the 3rd round "large receivers who can't block" in this pass happy NFL world? Okay.

Well Beast, it is a lot easier to straighten out a troubled, very talented player than to inject a marginal player with talent. One is possible and the other isn't.

As for McCarthy's opinion, we've been told for two seasons '12 & '13 that our defense is tough and going to be good by MM. I'm still waiting for that to happen.

I'm not going to be happy if we only carry 5 wide receivers just to keep an extra tight end. We only get 53 guys, so why carry so many tight ends?

We may also be carrying 3 QBs this year.

So are you calling TE Rodgers a marginal player? Or are you talking about others?

TEs are normally versatile and can be used for more STs, blocking and receiving, teams like versatility.

But I agree that I want the team to keep at lest 6 WRs this year (at least if they show up in the preseason, like I'm expecting them to).
