On a side note, I caught 'NFL matchup' saturday night(which btw is the best football show left on tv hands down IMHO) and they highlighted Kevin Boss and his run blocking, and let me say this guy's run blocking is as advertised...He demolished Chris Long multiple times, but not just him, whoever he lined up against, he has this club move that he does and it clears the entire hole to run through...For a team like NY that requires their TE's to block so much he really is a great fit, I heard alot about how good he really was in that aspect but it's certainly the truth, the guy is a road grader.

it does help that he's pretty massive and gained alot of weight in muscle this off season. All off season Mike Pope has been working on his blocking. Just blocking, blocking and more blocking. He's got the technique down fairly well now, throw in his already huge ass frame and more muscle, and you've got yourself a nice little(big really, lol) run blocker. The dude's freaking 6'7 with pretty long legs. Just a very large dude.

As Scottyboy mentioned a lot of attention should go to Mike Pope, the tight end coach. The guy does a superb job at improving all aspects of a tight end, especially blocking. He really just helps guys use their natural physical ability and teaches great technique.

Shockey went from someone who was fairly below average at blocking to one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL.

It's really amazing what he's done with Boss, a guy who last year everyone knew and thought was a liability in terms of blocking to a guy who's looked great blocking thus far.

Reason #1 I didn't want the Saints to trade for him. While it's obvious how reliant our offense is on a great TE, Shockey has proven he can not stay healthy and now we're giving up a 2nd round pick and a 5th round pick so the guy can nurse his balls.

I applaud the organization for aggressively going after Vilma. The same thing with Brees. But Shockey's track record has proven that he's a beast when he's healthy but he's never healthy for a season. Why give up draft picks on someone that will only play half of your games? If we wanted that we could've traded for Lito Sheppard cheaper than Shockey came.

Shockey's loss will mean less running lanes for the Saints.

We haven't had any running lanes with Shockey.

That's only a slight exaggeration since our run blocking has been pathetic.

Lito Sheppard is injured just as much as Shockey if not more so.

Yeah, but he was a dominant blocker and the type of weapon teams had to account for, even if Killdrive hated throwing the ball to him.

I really hope he can stay healthy because I love his fire and passion. He loves football and he loves winning football games, the biggest problem with him isn't the injuries, plax has been constantly injured but he's still a beast, the problem is that when his team is not winning he feels too much pressure to be the guy to step up and carry the team, which results in him losing focus and dropping easy passes or taking stupid penalties. I really thought that with Brees already the guy in New Orleans he'd really flourish and be a great team-mate, but this injury is a major set back.

Which is really incredible because after last season the biggest question mark we as giants fans had was how much would he improve his blocking. He really was weak at that last season.

Shockey just didn't have any technique as a blocker, he was a big strong, fast and tough bamf, so he was effective as a blocker by sheer force of will early on, it's just the lack of technique prevented him from developing consistency and being able to just school anyone.

You guys aquired Brees after a serious shoulder injury, Vilma almost ripped his leg off at the knee last season and has been constantly banged up since the end of his rookie season and Lito Sheppard misses games every year. Yeah Shockey's suffered a lot of injuries in his career but the saints have gambled on people recovering and staying healthy before and you want them to do it again. I'm not sure what my point is I'm just trying to figure out your logic on that.

Saying that about Lito Sheppard was out of frustration more than anything. The Drew Brees gamble paid off and it's looking like the Vilma trade will have paid off as well. Shockey, on the other hand, has not been able to stay healthy his entire career. I don't know what made the Saints give up two draft picks we could desperately use in order to get a tight end that will miss at least 3-6 games a season.

You've struck gold on 1 out 3 seriously injured or oft-injured players already and hopefully will strike gold again, that's a good percentage for a team that seems to like those kind of buy low gambles.

As for adding Shockey to your team he's a guy who has the ability to be a game changer and IMO the Saints have the talent to be a perennial playoff team and in the playoffs were only one game matters having as many game breakers as possible is clutch, even if some of them do miss part of the regular season. Plus Shockey ups his intensity even more in big games.

As mentioned, a ton of credit should go to our TE coach, Pope, he's the best in the business.

I was quite shocked at his progress bc if you go back and look at his run blocking last year, he was downright awful. He's still not where i want him to be, he's not on Shockey's level, but his progress is promising.

Having him makes up for losing Shockey for sure.

Its the scheme. TEs don't get many catches in our scheme. He's more of a blocker/decoy.

Thats why Shockey wanted out.

Scheme, and we rather go 3 wide instead and use Steve Smith like we did last year. Remember who our OC is. Mr. Gun n shoot himself, so I am sure he is very happy to go 3 or 4 wide whenever possible.

I actually don't like how we're using Smith. Last year, we used him as a pure slot WR. This year we have him running a lot of TE routes. Thats why he's had a "dropoff" of sorts. Stick to what works. Keep him as a pure slot WR and let him do what he does.

If anything, Id rather have Hixon run the TE routes. He's more built for it.

He is being moved around now, just like everyone else. There is no slot guy anymore. I would rathe have it that way. Also don't forget those are just terms, it depends what personnel they are in, and what Smith is. X, Y or Z in that personnel. Hixon is a typical X in my opinion, and so when Plax is on the field, we almost use Hixon like two split end wrs. I would rather have Smith and Toomer for those TE routes like curls and hitches. Also depends on the coverage.

Against man coverage C2 man and C1 man free, Smith can own any nickel Cb in that matchup. It's like stealing at that point. I have no issue with that, and we changed some of our running plays too.

Now I told you yesterday I think our lack of screens is something I don't like. I would rather use more bubble and Wr screens.

None of our WRs really fit the screen profile though. Other than Moss, but it would be too obvious if we put him in the game and just run a screen with him.

Its a damn shame. Sinorice Moss was supposed to be for us what Desean Jackson is for the Eagles. But it just never worked out.

Moss, Manningham, Smith or Hixon. Even put Bradshaw at WR at times, while having another back in the backfield. The more you rotate your Wrs the harder is for the defense to key in on who the "screen guy" is. It's damn near hard to simulate that in practice. You'd have to have different body builds playing the other team's WR.

I always saw moss as welker. In fact before the superbowl Moss played Welker and gave the defense a good look.

Lito Sheppard may disagree with you.

What's going on with Mario Manningham?
