Is the TE position. It's played a major factor in the growing improvement of this offense. 2010 TE's 75 receptions for 932 yards and 11 TD's (Through 13 games) 2007 TE's 46 receptions for 468 yards and 8 TD's (Through 16 games) I don't ever think we've seen the Belichick Pats use the TE's as much as we've seen this year. It's amazing how much Gronkowski and Hernandez bring to the offense. We also have better blocking from our TE's than we had in 2007. We had Ben Watson, Kyle Brady & David Thomas, with Brady being a good blocker. Crumpler and Gronkowski are excellent blockers.
