Show me how a TE can block a DE or a LB, and then go catch a pass 15 or 20yds deep. They block or they run but they don't do both in the same play, no way.

if you look at the teams that are 4-0/3-1 and with a top 7 offense and top 7 in scoring there is one thing in common that stands out.

their TE's are the #2 recieving options and in the top 20 of receivers in receptions.

bruce arians is running an antiquated patriot offense that was scrapped and abandoned 7 years ago. the run and shoot is dead, as is the "greatest show on turf".

in a weak attempt to be clever, trick and outscheme the league, he has outsmarted himself once again, and turned heath mill into an average, dime a dozen player. one of them is pretty much useless and one of them needs to go before next season. i sure hope it isnt miller.

know how you preserve ben? line up in shotgun, 11 personnel, and split heath out. use a rb as a sidecar for either protection, draws, or an outlet. quit keeping people in for protection and let him read the blitz and get rid of the ball quickly.

or we can keep running those slow developing handoffs and play action where ben actually HAS HIS BACK to the on coming rush, for more than a second.

But they do it all the time. They don't have to stay put like the other linemen, just force the LBs to take the long route, bump them into an arc rather than a straight line to the QB, then go. I mean, it doesn't happen every single play, especially not in today's NFL where you see tight ends as H-backs and U-backs and lined up wide, etc., etc. but I submit to you that they're not really TEs in those cases, and their agents should be arguing the same thing, getting them WR money instead of the lower-scale TE pay.
