All the reports I read on him after the draft said that his blocking absolutely sucks, so I would imagine that with us being such a run heavy team at the moment that it's hard to justify having him out on the field very often. He may well be our best receiving talent in the group, but if his blocking is so poor is it really worth having him out there for maybe a decent reception or two each game when our running game is suffering as a result of his crappy blocking?
That could be it, although Rosario's never been known as a dynamic blocker either. Interestingly enough, Green's scouting report coming out was that of a really athletic receiver who was god awful at blocking, and somehow he's become their exclusive blocking TE and was pointed out by Xanders as such.

Per Thomas, I just don't know beyond him possibly not being healthy. I noticed him open a few times against the Raiders and Tebow overthrough him one time and I don't think saw him the others. My only other theory could be that he may suck on special teams and at this point - with Fells the clear starter and Green their "blocker" - they may view Rosario as the best STer. Just a theory, but if you saw the two in camp it was no contest as Rosario wasnt in Thomas' league. That's why he he was cut initially.

This is actually the first one I've had the time to sit down and really listen to. I really enjoyed it. Only thing I would change is that I didn't hear anyone mention me at any point in it. Other than that, great job.

Funny story, in all the earlier ones I both started and ended every answer with "bowtown". I just now gave it up. Weird timing.

Great job guys!

Very entertaining. Love the KM stuff, he would have been better split wide than JJ but he is broken again.

Montrose was right about the 4th down in overtime.

Love the Overtime Podcast for the Overtime game!

I agree with Taco, I don't think this team is built to get stung by trap games. If the coaches stay patient and call the games the have since the Detroit loss we win this one by at least 2 scores.

Me too. I thought that was an EXCELLENT point.

Still, this team could get beat up by momentum by any given opponent.

Julius Thomas just needs to sit and learn the NFL. Remember this basketball player had just one year of college football (and one year of HS football that is his exposure to football period) and showed enough to get drafted in the 4th
