well i guess just vernon on harbaugh heard wrong... but vernon said the second he heard he took his shoes off and left his clothes on and jumped in the hot tub. he expects huge things from offense with jim coming in and the talent already there. he said he expects to touch the ball 10-15 times a game, cause harbaugh likes to use tight ends.
Tells you what Vernon thought of Sing and Jimmy Raye. I know Taylor Mays sounded depressed that Sing got fired in the interview he had with the San Diego radio station but Vern seems to realize its necessary to have a HC that is competent when it comes to offense. Harbaugh uses lots of 2-3 TE sets though so we could use an upgrade from Delanie Walker opposite Vernon. Also need a QB to get him the ball.
an upgrade over D.Walker? As a #2 TE I'm not sure if there is any better than Walker. He runs like a WR has good hands, runs good routes what more do you want in your #2 TE than what Walker provides????
Walker is better than alot of Starters in the league and would be starting on most teams, how the hell are we gonna get an upgrade at our #2 tight end spot?
Wait when did this guy get so overrated? He's a decent player but he has questionable hands. His fumble in the red zone vs NO may have cost us that game, and he dropped some passes(including a long pass right in his hands vs SD). He's only 6'1'' so he doesn't offer that much of a size advantage and he's never been a great blocker.
