So is this actually the 'Why Orton played so bad against Tenn' thread? Just want to check in early if it is.

What's up with our pass catching TEs, and injuries? I watched Sheffler lighting it up the last two week.

I think he'll play badly because he's gonna get killed and Den won't be able to run against that defense. He's a below avg qb on what is probably one of the 4 worst teams in the nfl, and they're down at least one starting wr and the starting TB. I wish him well somewhere else in 2012.

He had 1 catch for a TD (in each game)

Not exactly lighting it up

It was one hell of a catch. I just assumed it wasn't his only catch of the game. All he does is catch touchdowns

Really? Scheffler has two catches this year. They were both nice catches for touchdowns, but those are the only two.

Is Donnie Avery still available as a FA? His biggest asset preACL was his deep speed and quickness. I know the Rams gave up on him, but typically ACL injuries shouldn't sap deep speed...could be a nice WR to stretch defenses with.

They said Lloyd should be back as they thought he could go last game. The others are also probably day to day.

This team needs to figure something out. Way to many injuries in three of the last four years. Maybe it's just bad luck but it does seem excessive.

Matt Willis can make some big catches provided he doesn't let Willis McGahee kill him.

Yep. Who is the strength and conditioning coach these days? Those are the guys that usually lose their jobs because of recurring tissue injury problems. ACLs and the like are bad luck, hammys, groins, etc. not always bad luck.

Steve Antonopulos. Same guy that's been with the team for over 30 years, amazingly.

I'm not sure what TEs you follow, but that's a hell of a pace...

Typical idiotic OM sour grapes attitude.

Here are the facts: Sheffler was an terrific TE prospect (credit here goes to Shanny) with great speed and great hands.

Not the biggest strongest TE -- but a real weapon over the middle. We saw Cutler go to him again and again behind the LBs -- with success.

After the fiasco with McD and Cutler -- who can blame Sheffler for wanting out of town.

I just wish we still had him.

He was also fragile and couldn't block to save his life. The guy tends to get overrated or underrated a lot, but rarely does anyone see the truth of it. He was a decent receiving TE that couldn't block and was injury prone. Him leaving only hurt us because McD never bothered to replace him with anyone half decent.

I post injury news, you bag on Orton the first reply out of the gate. If you haven't noticed, we have 1000 other threads to discuss our current QB situation.
