Be careful what you wish for…


you just might get it. The picture above is Carr running for his life in preseason G1 because TE blocking coverage broke down. The early buzz is that the TEs were less than spectacular in their first preseason performance, and that that spark is certainly missing. Here is another roundup of the same story, fresh from Vacchiano late last night.

It would have certainly been nicer to already have that #40 pick on the team, before this season, and before Shockey gets his chance to boost the Saints’ fortunes by simultaneously lowering where our 2nd (and 5th) rounder slot is. For now we have to live with the fact that we have Boss’s hands and that is about it. Hopefully between all of them we can get some blocking and some balance. (Matthews is NOT balance, as he may be a better blocker but he is not at all an offensive threat to keep defenses off-balance. You can file him under C, for Howard Cross… with no disrespect for Cross either given his infinitely better blocking skills.)

Eagerly looking for some upticks from TE play this evening.
