I did not really pay that close attention but it seems as though we didn’t have a TE on the field much yesterday.
A handful of snaps with a FB and a lot of 4 receiver sets.
Assume the concept was clean up the box by spreading things out as much as possible.September 15, 2019 at 12:25 pm #98619
Tight ends were on the field a lot. Sometimes Jovani Haskins, sometimes Michael O’Laughlin. Neither had a catch, and I don’t remember either even being targeted, as both were used primarily as blockers. A lot of times WVU went max protect, and kept its tight ends to pass block, so their opportunities for receptions were limited. But both got a bunch of snaps. T.J. Banks was also dressed but I don’t remember him getting in the game, and he’s not listed as having participated.September 15, 2019 at 12:27 pm #98620
Thanks, only recall noticing a TE on one play where I believe O’Laughlin had a nice block.September 15, 2019 at 4:34 pm #98675
Hoping that as the season progresses, they can become another option in the passing game. Like many aspects of this team, the performance wasn’t good the first two weeks. I need to rewatch to see how they did – been focusing on some other items the first time through.September 15, 2019 at 7:22 pm #98707
When they have Thimons in the game, they are less likely to use formations that utilize the TE. And Thimons played quite a bit.
