    [QUOTE=718broncofan;1923232]daniel grahm was hands down the worst acquistion by far in this offseason!!! and i think shanny doesent wanna rush graham outta town yet but if im scheff why do i play hard when your front office goes out and picks up an unproven tightend for gates and gonzalez money????????[QUOTE]

    Unproven??? You are kidding, I hope.

    Although I don't see it happening, if Scheffler IS sandbagging because the front office brought in Graham, then he is not the kind of player you want around anyway.

    One thing Shanahan has shown, if you are good enough to beat someone out of their position, then you'll start, it doesn't matter where you were drafted or how much money you are being paid.

    Scheffler, in my opinion, will be fine, and will contribute this year, but he still needs to work on his weaknesses.

    Scheffler has to work his way up the depth chart just like Marshall had to. This is not a surprise to me. In any case, like many said we will run alot of 2 TE sets, but Graham is our number one guy. I just hope Schef has the motivation to get back to the top of the depth chart soon, I haven't heard much from him this offseason.

    in the end jackson looked great this preseason and has earned the right to be the third stringer.
    THANKS !

If its passing downs and we want the TE in the pattern or a threat to be in the pattern, Scheff will be in. If we are going against a heavy blitzing situation and working to max protect, we may see Alexander in. But Scheff is the guy that will see the more time played along with Graham.
    Alexander will also get his share, he's been one of the most underrated players these past seasons for us along with Ferguson.

    With the release of Kyle Johnson, even though Sapp is a beast, and the success Henry has had running behind double-tight end sets, it seems we will be having Graham and Sheffeler on the field alot together. I can also guarantee you that Cutler will be looking for Sheffeler more often than Graham.

    nevertheless

    i scooped up scheff in my big money fantasy league in the 13 round, because i know he is still the most talented tight end on the broncos and i also know that shanny will always look to sling the rock to the tightends in his offense. daniel grahm was hands down the worst acquistion by far in this offseason!!! and i think shanny doesent wanna rush graham outta town yet but if im scheff why do i play hard when your front office goes out and picks up an unproven tightend for gates and gonzalez money???????? lets not forget guys the greatest tightend to ever play(shannon sharpe) wasnt the greates run blocker either!!!!

    How can we tell if he has been going up against 3rd string guys all preseason since he has gotten back?

    His route running hasn't gotten worse that's for sure. He was open all over the field against Arizona yet Parsons couldn't hit him, especially on that play where Scheffler was wide open 20 yards downfield but Parson missed him with no pressure on him at all.
    His route running might be there but his pass and run blocking is just horrible. i have seen him three times this year just get blown off the ball.


    I am sure he gets reps with the starters but the chances arent there like if he was a first or second team guy

    Sorry if this is a repeat post and if I started a thread wrong it is my first one. But i was just wondering what has happened Tony Scheffler? He has fallen to last on the depth chart has his play declined? or is it due to his broken foot has slowed him down and he is not use to the plays yet and timing is off with Jay? If someone could please answer this that would be awesome thanx.
    Im gonna say he is having himself a case of the sophmore slump. and missed some training camp. the reps with the starters is/are not there. this is where he proves he an play. this is gonna be his year

    Silks got it right. It doesn't matter what the depth chart looks like. Graham will be in more often, but Scheffler will get PLENTY of time in the game during passing downs and the red zone. The TE is pretty important to our offense, and 2 TE sets is what Shanahan ran so often in the past with Sharpe around.

    I feel it is the injury and not wanting to put too much strain on it in preaseason. Once the season comes he will get plenty of playing time because he and Jay seem to have that connection and I want them to pick up where they left off last season.

    I thought thats what he worked on this offseason have we really seen an imporvement or is it to early to tell?
