Default Putzier a Bronco again

The Denver Broncos reached a one-year contract agreement with TE Jeb Putzier, Scout.com has confirmed.

Putzier ended last season with the Broncos after spending most of it with the Seattle Seahawks. He played for the Houston Texans in 2006 and 2007 and was drafted in the sixth round by Denver in 2002.

I guess he's a good insurance policy for Scheffler...

That might mean that they are close to moving Scheffler as has been noted a few times in the press.

At some point in time, this guy is going to have to make a move that is really different than Shanahan that we can look at and go: "that's it! That's the reason this guy is here."

Hmmm... Looks like he hasn't been getting the same production the last few years as the modest production he had with us.

Anyone know why he's only started two games in the last two years? Actually, I just realized that I answered my own question.

Is the TE important in McDaniels scheme? Can Graham fit the bill?

The TE is important to run blocking and goal line receiving. Graham fits it perfectly.

Only for blocking... Ben Watson caught 22 balls all season last year.

There might be some plays in the ole McD handbook that calls for a pass catching TE and he can do that and he's cheap. I've been saying for awhile I think Schef is "trade bait" come draft day.

Not as important as in Shanahans WCO.

March 7, 2009 -- Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer visited Broncos owner Pat Bowlen at the team's Dove Valley's headquarters Friday for the first time since he retired following the 2006 season.

I think that illustrates McDaniels's immaturity and lack of flexibility. The wise coach is the one that tailors his scheme to his talent. When you have a system that does not highlight a very good recieving tight end, the solution is to adapt the system accordingly. Scheffler is a near Pro Bowl caliber recieving TE when healthy. It is true that he is only healthy 2/3 to 3/4 of the time, but that's not sufficient reason to trade him. I'll take a monster 2/3 to 3/4 of the time. He's got heart, too. He isn't soft. He really gutted it out against Cleveland this year. He is injury prone, but its not due to being inherently soft. He's got great chemistry with Jay. You just absolutely have to utilize a talent like this. If you want to run a spread offense, you still gotta use your stud TE. You can still use those formations, just keep the TE on the field in place of the 3rd WR or 4th WR. Scheffler scares defenses more than any 3rd WR or 4th WR. He is a legitimate threat to be screaming down the seam in an instant. He's a beast. He has to be accounted for.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that either the staff is too rigid with their system, or that they are trying to intentionally give Jay the finger by trying to trade his best friend. Maybe its both, because injuries cannot justify trading this type of talent. He's a real ****ing talent. Graham is the superior blocker, no doubt, but Graham scares no one in the passing game and McDaniels was brought here presumably because we are now transitioning to a full time, wide open passing attack. This means that the recieving TE has the priority over the blocking TE. If McDaniels system is overly WR-centric in the passing game (to the detriment of the TE), when you've got this talent, then he's (McDaniels) just an idiot.

It would be a HUGE SHAME if this guy is traded. He opens things up for the two WRs and the offense is noticeably different without him.

Here is a stab in the dark. Sheff gets moved to WR this year with Putz being the second blocking TE next to Graham.

But we already have Bmarsh, Royal, Stokely, Gaffney, etc. Do we have room for a WR Scheff?

Sweet Jesus, no. The guy can't pass from the pocket, has terrible vision on the left side of the field, and we're running a pocket passing offense. I know I'll get laughed at for this, but in McDaniels offense I'd rather go back to Griese than to Plummer. I don't want either of them, but Griese is a better fit for the kind of offense that New England runs than Jake is.

Jake, and Jay for that matter, is a gun slinger. This system is more of a cerebral quarterback system.

Someone with Griese's smarts, a moderate arm who can get the ball out quick and with lots of touch, and the toughness of Steve McNair would be perfect.

Hell, let's bring back BOB Griese!

We all would rather have a happy Jay as QB without a doubt. But let's say he gets moved and we don't restart all over and draft another QB. Who's your QB next year? Personally I take Leftwich or if Bulger's available I nab him.
