    Activating Nate is a great move. Scheffler is clearly not ready yet. From what I understand, he's a better blocker than Scheff too.


    We gotta try and get something out of what has been a complete joke so far.

    Scheffler excused

    Rookie tight end Tony Scheffler missed the Broncos' workout Friday so he could attend the funeral of his grandmother in the Detroit area. With Cleveland a 2 1/2-hour drive away, Scheffler was planning to meet the Broncos at their hotel Saturday night.
    Nope, I hadn't seen that. I am sorry for his loss.

    I am glad that there may have been personal reasons for this, as I would hate for them to give up on him that soon. Hopefully, he is back in there next week.

    I would think a better arrangment (assuming he can run block), would be to put in Jackson as the run blocking/all round TE and still use Scheffler as the pass catching TE.

    I'm sure I wasn't the only one that noticed that Jackson and Alexander were the two TEs on the field a bunch today, and I didn't see much out of Scheffler. I was really hoping that Scheffler would be making an impact by the second half of the season. It is beginning to look like his development is going to take longer.
    Well... can't say that I can blame Shanny for involving Nate in the TE rotation a bit more now. Scheff hasn't been able to do what he did during the preseason. I hope it's just the rookie jitters and he gets better though.

    i would say it's WAY too early to worry about that. . . . especially considering where he went to school. . . . i'm still hoping we'll see him make an impact this year, but i won't be shocked if he doesn't-- and even if he doesn't, it certainly won't mean that he can't have a good career. . . no matter what we want, it's pretty typical for rooks to struggle. . . . of course, it would help if alexander would contribute a little more-- we really should go after a TE in free agency in the offseason, there's going to be a strong group available, and even if chef DOES break out, we can absolutely use two good TEs as many two TE sets as we like to run. . . .

    i suspect that jackson may have played even if it hadn't happened, though. . . . here's a quote from my "breakin' it down" thread:





    not intended to be a knock against the chef. . . . next week should tell us if his PT was reduced because of lack of production, or because of the death in the family. . . .
    Actually, we already kinda suspect that because Scheffler was at the game, on the sideline, in uniform.

    It's possible but he only missed one practice. He would've had a while to study their gameplan if they hand them out early in the week. But it's all good. Ha, Alexander lining up at FB? What's going on out there.

    Don't sell Jackson short, he's a tremendous slouch!

    Hmm...nevermind then.

    Sad to hear that.

    He was dressed (he gave Marshall a hug after his TD), so perhaps he just wasn't ready for the gameplan.

    Scheffler was at the game on the sideline, in uniform. He wasnt gone or with his family.
