Not to mention that their two starting TEs - Ed Dickson & Dennis Pitta - have 12 receptions between them. I'm not putting them down, both look pretty good. Pitta has really good hands, and Dickson can move for a man of 6'4 255. It's just that neither one is very good at blocking - Dickson reminds me of Spaeth.

They replaced Heap, their best red zone threat and a capable (and willing) blocker. Everyone here in Baltimore likes to justify getting rid of Heap, 'cause he had injury issues and because they have these 2 young kids, but they will miss Heap's production - no doubt about it.

They are not a better team starting one of the two kids over Heap. Period.
