    I just saw that Miller has been put on the injured list and was curious on how our other TE's were looking especially the rookie Halterman. :ouch:

    Other posters claiming Kailee Wong is being auditioned for the position -
    hey, he might end up being the first 2-way starter in the NFL since Chuck Bednarik !

    It says here that Billy Miller rolled his ankle and Glen Earl will be out a week to 10 days with a separated shoulder.

    Seriously, he has not been mentioned by the press, the coaching staff or any of our posters who attend live practice.

    doesn't seem like too serious of an injury to me. atleast this may give guys like halterman, murphy, and rivers some more reps at TE.

    Halterman's a longsnapper. I don't think he'll be anywhere near the starting rotation at TE.

    Bubba would be a great addition, but I dont think he's going anywhere, he is about to break a few records at Lambeu Field this year, and Favre is in better shape than he has been in years....I am hoping that Rivers will do well in TC/PS and light a fire under Billy, they have GOT to do something about the TE pos. :brickwall

    As far as I am concerned, there are two positions that must be addressed next year (assuming they continue to be an issue this season), OLT and TE. We fix those and Mathis starts to come into his own, and this team will be GTG.

    I personally believe that next years draft will be strong at 2 positions, LT and TE, the 2 positions we most desperately need. So I say we go for Eric Winston or Jonathan Scott or even Marcus McNeil with our first pick, and since Mercedes Lewis will be gone by the second pick (unless we trade our second and third to move up into the bottom of the 1st), we go woth one of the two best all around TEs IMO. Tim Day of Oregon or Dominique Byrd from USC, both are over 260 and both can block well as well as stretch the field.

    Keep an eye on Byrd. Being from USC is a big plus. Mr. McNair is a USC grad and we always have a big interest in USC players it seems.

    When is Rivers going to step in and become the starter? I have high hopes for him, but I haven't heard a thing about him. He has a lot of potential, and I wish he would make us forget about our TE situation. :confused:
