Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

The Post casually mentioned in an article today how the Skins signed a new starting TE, but I assumed Cooley was still our man and that Fauria replaced Royal as first non-H-Back TE.

I know Cooley is the starting H-Back, but on single TE non F/H-Back sets, who gets up on the line?

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?

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

I think he could technically be the "starting TE" depending on the starting formation. If you go 2 WR, 5 OL, 1 TE, 1 HB, 1 TB, 1 QB.....then he's a "starter". Basically, Cooley takes the place of the starting FB that most teams go with.......so that opens up another TE spot.

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

but on goalline/shortyardage situations when we have Mike "secret weapon" Sellers out there as the real FB, who's up on the line? Chris or Christian?

He's a blocking tight end. I think we have plenty of people to throw the ball to now, heh?

Both, I mean one will be tight, Fauria, and the other, Cooley will be out in space trying to creat mis-matches, favorable for us...

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

ive always thought of fauria as a balanced tight end. can block and has solid hands. he is our TE, Cooley is our H-back. Fauria simply replaces Royal

It all depends on the formation. If were are trying to make it look like a run, then I'm sure Fauria will be on the line (Vice Versa).

oh yeah? a big body blocker? excellent that's what i was hoping to hear, i hope he's good at pass protection, for the frequent times you basically need another lineman.

i was under the mild impression (from the few times i can stomach watching the Pats) that he was a pass-catcher.

Agreed, depends on the formation they call for....and many times both will still be in there (2TE sets).

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

Fauria is a stud blocker, big upgrade over Royal. His hands, I dunno, the Pats use a lot of trickery in goal line situations so I'm not sure if that is a critique on Fauria's hands or just a case of "those tricky Pats."

I guess the real question of who starts is how often we go with three wides, but now we have options.

Re: Cooley/Fauria who's at TE?

bless Cooley, but he should almost always be up on the line, he's not really fooling anybody in the backfield as a lead blocker for Portis or in pass protection. he's always just been our trusty #2 reciever/safety valve.

gonna be exciting to see the offensive changes with TWO real #2 receivers in the offense now. i'm still hoping to see Sellers bludgeon holes from the backfield more often.
