i said this a few times last year and it was out of necessity, but i think we're hindering the offense's potential if we're running two tight end sets with both crosby and hurst as our base offense and i think it puts too much pressure on the oline and backs. having said that if we're using smaller tight ends like crosby and pollard and running the ball id like to see us motioning them or lining them up in the backfield more often.

ideally like coach mcclendon said we get in more 3 wr sets this season with the added depth at that position to stretch the field in the passing game, and get teams in the nickel and run on them.

The interesting question is who made the drops. It's a bit of an issue if it is guys we are going to rely on heavily, it's a non issue if it's guys that won't sniff breaking the 2-deep this year.

Yep I agree I read somewhere that Roper's traditional philosophy for his offense doesn't use a two TE set, but 1 TE and a slot WR as a 3rd WR. We tried that early last season using Jamari Smith as the slot, but he dropped the passes. Hurst was used a lot in the slot position, so we used the 2 TE look more out of necessity then preference.

Hopefully with Banks and a healthy Davis, plus at times Samuel we'll have more options to have a 3rd WR, and have our offense look more like our Offensive Coordinator wants it to.....

IMO when its spring practice, it's not that big of an issue regardless. The players will have all summer, plus fall camp to work on focusing on the ball better....

I am not sure if it was implied, but we don't want to have Hurst out of the lineup. I just hope he improves his blocking skills. That being said, it is tough to block down field.

I love the two TE sets. Defense has to decide to defend the run and leave your outside guys one on one, or stay a two high shell and give you numbers in the box. Also, it allows so much flexibility with motioning and unbalanced sets.
