    While watching the game yesterday, could not help but think why a TE is not a first read or so overlooked.

    That is one of the reasons why this O is so predictable..

    Instead of giving Watson and Baker the ball, this team is trying to make Sam Aiken the 3rd receiver in that spread offense.

    Not just Watson but Baker looked like a very solid receiver at the TE position in the preseason and early in the regular season.

    The TE has never been a huge part of the NE offense- even with Weis calling plays. But with Watson having 3 catches for 43 yds in the last 3 GAMES, he is just not getting open OR Brady isn't even looking at him.

    Re: Reiss:TE production remains a concern

    well..i normally dont like to blame OC for this but i think this is on him/BB. If you see the colts game,they did get watson the ball in the 2nd or 3rd drive. in the saints game ,i cna only remember the pass up the middle for a missed TD. In fact , why the TE isnt involved in the RZ instead of the constant fade attempts to moss is a mystery.
    How many times we saw fauria of all people caught TD passes off of play action ?

    I presume that the TEs are busy blocking and so have the hands full.

    In fact, when Baker called a TO (that made Wes furious), I assumed that he saw something that made him think that he alone couldn't handle and hence called a TO.

    Felger just said that the Patriots are 30th in the league in tight end receptions. This is not because of lack of TE talent.

    I agree, it has more to do with game planning and play calling.. take some pressure off of Welker who is taking a beating.

    Brady rarily looks off Welker and Moss and that is a problem including the lack of our TEs to try and get open.

    Even when slow Dan Graham was here we had plays that would get him wide open TD passes. I can't remember the last time Watson was thrown to.

    Daniel Graham was not slow. You must be thinking of someone else.
