Always. Be it poor OLB or S play - TE are always killing us.
Yeah, you would think Dallas Clark has DB repelent. If I see him running down the field uncovered waiving at the crowd Im gonna barf. Its freakin terrible. Its not just him, hes just the first one who comes to mind.

You can add Gates to that list as well. It was like our defense was told to leave him alone because of how open he was getting. He only had 3 catches, but they went for 96 yards and 2 TD's. That game sucked!

Known but not being posted is our hopefully improved LB, DL and CB should make it easier on the safeties.

I was under impression that some of our recent additions at safety were known for abilitiy to come up and hit. Am I wrong?

Might as well add Kellen Winslow II on there as well. 10 catches for 107 yards and a TD. We routinely get abused by any TE worth his salt, and I think that it is due to poor OLB and S play. If our Safeties and outside linebackers are supposed to be mirror images of the other player across from them, then everybody better learn how to start covering bigger TE's who can run and catch cause we got murdered by those players last year.

The only TE that didn't have a career game against us? That'd be Tony Gonzo for the Chiefs.

IIRC, that was able to happen because the other recievers we were able to single up on and that we doubled Tony. At least I sort of remember it happening like that.

Yes, if I remember correctly, Dwayne Bowe was their best receiver and that was his first game in the NFL ever. Tony G did have a pretty good season, but he did not have a good game against the Texans.

Hopefully Xavier Adibi can cover the TE for us.

Just wondering does anyone know what happened to Jason Simmons? I think he was wearing #22 last year and Chris Brown is now wearing that number.

Ah, that's right. I just caught a glimpse of a Simmons wearing #13 on a video.

I'll see if I can dig something up. IMO, neither will make the team anyways.

FYI, it was a peteller tendon he tore.
