    Plus they can have a two tight end set with gates wide. Which I've read they've been working on.

    That’s a good signing.
    I would refer to him as “the guy with the really long name that you never see on the field but you see him occasionally complete a touchdown reception.” :yes:

    We got Chandler because we need more than two TEs on the roster. Chandler seems like he can fill both a blocking TE role (though not as good as Manu), and the pass catching TE role (though not nearly as good as Gates).

    3 TE sets are sometimes run on goalline or short yardage situations (i.e. 3rd and 2).

    Who's the 3rd TE now? Chandler.

    Aaron Shea and Krause never saw the field last year did they because of injury? In those situations, VJ was used as a pseudo-TE.

    With VJ moving up the WR depth chart as a regular starter this season, we need a REAL TE in the 3rd spot on the depth chart. That's Chandler.

    Ironic, we got our players locked up longer than the team itself. Mr. Spanos will have a very marketable franchise on his hands if these Oside and CV deals fall through.

    In the red zone, Rivers is going to be throwing to guys who will merely have to reach for passes that DB's will have to leave their feet for. If our guys have to leave their feet for the catch, and they can with APPLOMB, everyone else is just screwed. Kind of like holding a milkbone over fifi.

    He is a freaking road grader that can catch!

    Manu, McNeill, Dielman on the left and Neal clearing out the leftovers.
