I believe Ben Watson will have some really nice stats this season as long as he can avoid that old injury bug.
on the cusp of a breakout season
Watson's usual position.
He's only had two years of playing time (in his rookie year he got hurt in the first game and was placed on IR). It's not like we've been saying this about him for five years.
He should find Ben Coates and learn how to effectively use that body of his.
I hope I stop hearing Watson and potential in a couple seasons.
Ingoldsby on Kyle Brady...
Kyle Brady is likely to have more action than most here think. He is getting paid $2.65M per year. This is not #3 inactive TE pay.
I think he'll have quite a few touchdown catches. Like Casale said, he is so big that in the end zone no one can really stop him.
Do you think Watson may see reduced playing time? If the formation is 3 wide (or even 4), I'd think K. Brady would be in there as a blocker. Don't you think BB will want to get all this talent on the field at the WR and this is likely? Last year it was clear that the 2 TE formation worked since there was a deficiency at WR and this was the best way to get the talent snaps. I also know that Maroney will benefit from the blocking specialist TE more than T.Brady will benefit from a 5th receiver running downfield.
Thomas, I think, is going to emerge as the #1 TE this year. And I mean a top 5 TE in the league. Watson is great, but Thomas has sick hands. And Pastabelli doesn't even mention him. Or Welker. Guess he doesn't like white guys, huh?
(That was a joke, by the way)
HAHAHA so true.
Except Watson can't get away with pushing off
You can if you know how to do it. That was my point.
Clean play but looks like a foul=bad.
Foul the hell out of someone and don't get caught=excellent.
This is the big leagues.
Not to toot my own horn here (well, maybe a little), when we first signed him I proposed the same thing that Casale is saying now.
Separate names with a comma.
