Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

we'll be switching to a 3WR set... if only one TE is on the field, it should be cooley. Fauria can catch, but he's really going to just do everything royal did, but better (block block block block catch block).

i remember Royal not being very effective at blocking. he was pretty athletic and wiley though, it's just we already had Cooley.

Quote:
Goodwin has very good size and is valuable because of his versatility; he's capable of playing all the positions on the offensive line. He is best suited to play guard or center. He has good long arms, a decent punch coming off the ball and gets good separation from a defender. He takes a good first step and takes good angles to his blocks. He has decent strength, but he is not a dominant blocker at the point of attack. He shows the ability to mirror and slide with a defender and has the agility to be able to pull on traps and to lead the toss play. He gets into position to make a play, but he is inconsistent with his hand placement and is more of a waist bender who gets overextended at times. He has a narrow base on pulls and has a tough time adjusting to the moving target. He shows he can get to the second level, but he is ineffective in sustaining blocks on a moving target. He lacks the strength to get a lot of movement on the line of scrimmage in the run game and gets knocked back by a strong bull rush. He has difficulty resetting his feet once he commits and is vulnerable to a counter move in pass protection. Overall, he plays with good intelligence and can provide backup help in several positions. He needs to become more consistent in his technique and work harder to finish his blocks.

Marv Levy thinks he's the best blocking TE he's seen. Seriously, he said that.

He said it in an interview right after they signed him.

Royal was a good, productive player, but a wall he was not.

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

Rember we have Manuel White. This guy is awsome if you ever watched UCLA. HE is penciled in at Hback but can play the TE position in this offense.

before his convenient trip to IR, he was having a lot of problems with the transition to hback and said something about how he rather just be a RB or something...

maybe the year helped.

I'm not terribly familiar with Fauria, what are his strengths? is he a pass-catcher like Cooley, better at blocking etc? i'm sure they'll both be on the field together alot, but Cooley's still the starting "Go To" guy right?
Fauria has been a great short-intermediate route runner/pass catcher. He's never been a great blocker, which perplexes me with Gibbs' history. I don't think Cooley will ever be in a traditional TE role, but he will be on the field more than Fauria. Fauria essentially replaces Royal. Not sure whether that's an upgrade or not.

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

BOTTOM LINE:

Fauria will always be at TE and Cooley will be either a flew receiver, a motioning FB or in the wing/H Back position.

When they go 3 wides they will most likely put two WR's on the line and use coole one yard off the ball next to the tackle.

Big blocking type isn't really his style, although it is his image (more accurately, his style in Madden). I haven't exactly followed him his whole career, but I was hoping for someone who's a better blocker than Fauria to play the tight end.

Course, the Coaching Staff knows what they are doing, and if they dont think he can do a great job, they'll go get someone better. So I'm not gonna argue with myself anymore about this.
