Get this offense a TE that is a match up nightmare for the defense.  That is the only piece of the puzzle missing.  The rest will come with experience...

Chandler is not cutting it.

That's for sure.

Colin Brown needs to be replaced.

We could at least activate Gragg and give him a shot next game.

Would it really matter with the plays that are being called? How many times can they throw to the TE running a sideline pattern for no yards?

For years I have said that a TE wasn't the piece that was needed, and that other needs were more glaring. Now it is time. TE is the weakest link on the offense, and the position that an upgrade would have the biggest effect.

Yes, Chandler is slow.  However, to me it was not his speed but his lack of strength that was a problem today.  When you pass the ball to a tight end in the flat, you expect him to be able to bulldoze his way for about 3 or 4 yards.  It seemed that Chandler would get hit once (and not terribly hard) and go down.  I wonder if he lost some strength when he was injured.

Yeah, he doesn't seem 100%.

I think he is good, but a very good TE could propel the offense to great things.

Agreed.  I don't think that he broke a single tackle today.

He should have never even made the roster; we are really weak there.

TE and Oline should be top priority next offseason in FA and draft. I'm sure they will be

I like Chandler but he just seems unusually easy to tackle.

I wouldn't be against drafting TE's in rounds 1 and 2 or 3 and spending all additional picks on oline, and maybe use one pick on BPA at a different position for depth. If we get our hands on some Gronk/Hernandez type TE"s, watch the heck out.

Chandler looks like he is running in quicksand.  And then he falls down.
