Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said he has been pleased with how TE Visanthe Shiancoe has looked so far since joining the team. "I'd say he's done a really good job, but there is a learning curve," Harbaugh said. "He physically looks like he is in good shape. He is running routes well. He catches the ball well, and he's learning the offense. That's not easy. He's not up to full speed because he's not there mentally yet. But, we sure have a lot of talent and ability. He's doing a good job." Shiancoe said the hardest thing for him as been learning the terminology.

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 04:10:41 -0800
New England Patriots TEs Rob Gronkowski (forearm) and Aaron Hernandez (ankle) play two different positions within the team's offense. There is the traditional "Y" position, who is 6-foot-5 or taller, at least 255 pounds, can run but absolutely must be a standout blocker. He has to be a viable receiver, but not a great one. There is also the "F" or flex tight end, who is 6-foot-3 or taller, around 235 pounds, must be able to run and be an excellent pass receiver. He does not need to be a good blocker. If the team wants to stick with that system while Gronkowski is out, TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells could fill Gronkowski's "Y" position, while Hernandez and TE Visanthe Shiancoe would serve as the flex tight ends.
Sat, 10 Nov 2012 18:02:42 -0800
