    I can't see the footage but you kind have to like his athletic ability for that.

    Really??! He's listed as a TE on the roster, although I know Kubes uses him mostly on STs. BUT, I've always thought of him as an offensive guy.

    He'd be more useful at Center.

    I wish he would see the field more, regardless of which role he is in. I think he would do well at the wildcat.

    But what we should be doing right now is spreading the defense out in situations like Sunday's against the Cards. Multiple WR sets, spread 'em out and create some creases and soft spots.

    Did anyone else notice Casey came in as a WR for a snap on a play-action roll out in the 3rd quarter I think? Kinda random but I like that they wanna get him involved. He could be a real weapon inside the 20s.

    I don't mean to call anyone out specifically, but c'mon?

    Essentially WR moving to TE needs to be short yardage back?

    Don't know Casey plays on O?

    Center?

    He's obviously the biggest threat at TE, and only plays that or FB outside of special teams, saw a couple of snaps at longsnapper during TC. I thought everyone else was messing around or working from the notion he has seen time at FB.

    He displayed his ability to catch the ball and get open in pre-season I would like to see if he can replicate it in the regular season.

    I don't think this staff has put a lot of time into wildcat since we only saw it briefly (and awkardly I might add) last season, but it does make me wonder how well Casey would be in this role because he's great in space, has good vision, and is a legit passing threat. Not that I am advocating that, just thinking out loud, don't know why the staff didn't give it go, I guess the gave up on it altogether, you got to be pretty darn committed to it to be successful a la Miami Dolphins.
