The down and distance doesn't really matter. It wasn't a question of what formation the defense is going to use. It is about what the first thought would be. And that is pretty simple. DJ and Crabtree have combined for 9 receptions between them. They are either in to pass protect or run block.

The reason, I bring up the question, is, I went back and watched the jags game quickly, and noticed on a fairly high percentage of the run plays happened in this situation. Finley, or Finley and a WR were taken out of the game to bring in our blocking TEs. And quite a few were one TE on the line with the other in the backfield. This may have been partially due to not having Kuhn active, but it really seemed to tip off the run game. The defense was able to bottle it up, because they were able to keep 8 bodies closer to the LOS without having to really worry about pass coverage. If it did happen to be a pass, they were able to drop a couple to have 5 covering 2, with 6 rushing.

Seemed like a lack of creativity in the play calling.

that is the true value of a complete TE or TEs.

makes the D have to guess what you are thinking.

I believe this is why the Patriots have done so well with Gronk and Hernandez, while having a top 5 running game.

It's gonna be nice getting Quarless back.

Dude seemed to be really growing up and rounding out his game when we lost him last year.
