Looking for input on those who watch Phins or know Saban.

Can Randy McMichael succeed in this offense, especially if they land a solid QB?

Possible sneaking intot he top 5 of TE's?

He used them at Michigan State well. Chris Baker and Josh Keur come to mind.

I do not believe Saban has a lot to say when it comes to the offensive side of the ball. He is a defensive coach, I would look at his cordinators to help answer your question as to if McMichael can flourish. I would have to say Yes.......and if they get Brees......TOP 3 TE!

McMichael's problem is that he's got Chambers to compete with for balls...look at the top TEs...almost all of their teams have WR2s posing as #1s.

:yes: :goodposting:
Indeed, a very good post. Also, once a WR emerges as the #1, its funny how the TE suddenly takes a backseat in production. Anyone know the last team to have both a WR/TE both rack up 1000 yards each or 10 TDs each?

I think you are setting the bar a bit high on TE production. Since 1970, only 17 times has a TE had 1,000+ receiving yards (Sharpe x 3, Winslow x 3, Christensen x 3, Gonzalez x 2, Newsome x 2, Coates, Gates, Senser, Bavaro)And on only 13 occasions did a TE have 10 or more TD (Gates x 2, Gonzalez x 2, Sharpe x 2, Walls x 2, Christensen, Coffman, Casper, Jackson, Winslow).

Those are some primo numbers from some great TE. I'm not sure McMichael belongs in the same pantheon to begin with, so I doubt he would have those lofty numbers if Chambers wasn't around.

His prob is most of October, November, and December. If not for those pesky months he'd be a great TE ;)
