    Funny now TE's and the 2 TE set is the new flinge of many successful offenses in the NFL. Be curious as other teams begin to implement this scheme if the Patriots and Bellicheck will abandon it. Leaders always move on when everyone else starts to do it.

    I can think of number of reasons why it would work even with not understanding the intricacies of why. I have always been huge fan of TE going back to the Dave Casper days. I could never understand why they were never really appreciated in Chicago even one that was TE and was a coach. We had coaches that gave them away WTF was that all about. I'm still doing my jig knowing we have hc that understands why they are so vital to the success of any REAL football team in today's NFL.

    I agree. Miller could be the one that can step in and capitalize on the Wilson injury. Right now it doesn't seem that we have a solid number 3 now that Wilson is lost for the foreseeable future.

    I look forward to seeing what Miller can do against the jags. I'm sure we will use some 2 TE sets with the ones to see how it all works and it adds an element to our game. If I'm not mistaken this guy can block too, giving Tresty a number of ways to line up and use him/Bennett. Should open the run game up for Forte if we can use a heavy dose of 2 dual threat TEs on the field to go along with our 2 elite WRs.

    Guess the rich are seemingly getting richer if Miller works out. Gives us versatility to dictate the flow and tempo of our attack, and as an offense thats a big chunk of winning the battle.

    Should help the run game as well and ball control, slip in some passing to keep everyone honest and W-A-L-A. Gives us more options, I still exect to see a lot of 3 WR sets, especially when Wilson returns from his collarbone injury, but with the 3-4 defenses we play this year and the added ability to block the blitzing LB or chip block him and get into a route is going to be a positive in my opinion.

    I imagine Trestman is having sweet daydreams over his personnel possibilities. I hate to repeat myself, but Miller moves incredibly well out there and provides mismatch opportunities galore with team's best LBs focusing on Forte and Bennet up the middle, to the corners, in the flats and down the seam.

    You hit on something that is a good point I'd like to expand on. Against the 3-4 fronts that we will see (GB the big one) twin TE sets can really cause some schematic issues for them. A good way to defeat this front is to spread it out and make those angles from the Jack LBs (OLB/70 backer....they have about a million names) have a more predictable angle. Adding an extra TE makes Mathews play as a 70 and limits the amount of speed rush he can use lining up an extra 4 feet outside. Also, puts stress on those backers to cover more area in the run game and make wider reads on the DL in their 2 gap system. May add some pass coverage responsibilities to the LB corps of the odd front defenses....unless of course Capers is feeling lucky leaving single coverage on Marshall or Jefferys. In that case, good luck Dom.

    The Bears are gonna run thru teams like an F-5 tornado this season, if they use 2 TE sets with what we already have this team is gonna be even more dangerous than last year (before the injuries started).

    The Pukers are in trouble, da bears are coming to lay the smackdown !!!

    The offensive capabilities of this team are expanding year by year under Trestman. Once Wilson is back in @ #3, we are going to be a seriously tough team to deal with offensively. IMO the knockout punch would be if we could actually start blowing holes open for the running game. Forte can still get yards most of the time, but if we actually had a real running threat to compliment the scary passing threat, I think we would give teams a seriously big migraine.

    I got to see the packers play live against the Titans this pass weekend and all I can say is Wow..for us. The starting pac D struggled against a crappy Titan O I was laughing at the pac fans at the game sitting in storm while I sat dry in our seats under the overhang seating. Pep looks old he had a guy dead to to rights and made a big old whiff. The TD the Titans scored on was run to Pep's side which he was suppose to hold down the corner and he blew it big time. I know I know it's only preseason, but I'm so happy Pep is on their team and not the Bears. Time is catching him squarely between the eyes and I can't blame him for that, he used to be dominating player not anymore it only requires a single player to block him.

    I still think Pep has gas in the tank. My personal belief is that he is mentally not there. You have to want to be the best and have that constant drive. I think it is gone from him. Physically, I think he is still better than he shows. We will answer that when he plays Chicago. Whatever he has left in the tank, he will let out against the Bears. If he lays an egg against Chicago, then he is done.

    If he plays like Tarzan against us, then the Pecker coaches know what we know. He is still playing, but he has already retired.
