Run, block catch. I wonder if he can throw an option pass?
Dude alligator arms it at the wrong times
I love Vernon and believe he's a truly unique package at tight end, but like 49AllTheTime, I have also noticed the short arming of some throws. He absolutely refuses to lay out for catches, like yesterday on that long bomb. Just a couple of inches more and it's a huge completion. I really can't recall him ever laying out for a catch. Having said that, I'm not sure I'd trade him for ant tight end playing today, especially for our offense. It should also be noted that his hands are light years ahead of the early Vernon. It's obvious he's been working on that.
