When will people realize that Payton's offense doesn't revolve around the TE. So many people want to have this all pro pass catching TE, most of which can't block worth a lick. Here's the deal -- we started the season with an Oline that has not only never played together, but most were starting a new postion for the first time. So Payton went with football inteligence and ability to block over athleticism. Conwell is one of the smartest players on the field. Campbell, Euhus can block well. The TE on our team is not a second option, not a third option, but the last option when throwing the ball. Brees is a good enough quarterback to find the open man rather than forcing it, so our TEs will get a few catches a game, but thats it. Get over it with this we need a TE who can catch BS. Why would we even want to be able to throw a pass to someone other than Horn, Colston, Bush, Deuce, or any other player with the speed to break the big one. I understand that a TE can be used affectively down the middle of the field to stop safeties from double teaming our WR, but we don't need one to be a successful offense.
