    Is Fasano a decent TE, yes. Is he a true threat that teams have to account for? No. I think he's a good reliable TE that can somewhat block and catch a pass when needed. I think if we truly want to be a threat on offense, we need a TE that can get open and do damage after catching the pass, not just catch a 5-yard pass and get hammered by three linebackers. Nearly all the successful teams have some threat at the TE position and I wouldn't use Fasano and the word "threat" in the same sentence.

    A speed receiver would force safety help and for the most part force LB not safety coverage on Fasano. It is the domino effect, we have no receiver that can't be covered 1 on 1 by the DB'[s allowing the safety to cover the TE after a LB chucks him at the line. Fasano is not going to scare a DC but can be very functional IF you have someone to "take the lid" off the D.

    imo Fasano had to do a whole lot of blocking on the OL instead of getting out into coverage , BUT when he did get his chance , and was called upon he delivered , i think Fasano will do alot better if the OL , or when the OL steps up and can play one on one and dont have to have TE help at blocking , imo once we get some Big Decent WRs to open the field up, Fasano will show that he is above avg TE , and wil imo be a top 10 TE . but it wouldnt hurt at all to bring in another pass catching TE , when we go 2 TE wide.

    Fasano is either wide open or out of the picture. That's not good when you are supposed to be a safety valve for a young quarterback. He is the epitome of a "Jack of all trades" - Serviceable at all, but great at nothing.

    True, he may just be good, but not great, but I do think he is worth keeping and a valuable piece of our puzzle.
    Upgrading some of our other needs on offensive should only help his productivity, as well.

    You would have thought the Dolphins would have thrown more to him in the endzone.. considering he was catching everything his way. Always next year.

    The love for such a mediocre weapon is mind numbing. The guy disappears games at a time. That is a fact. He did it again this year. He had over half of his receptions in the first several weeks. Then where did he go? He avg 1 RECEPTION a game for 6 weeks. In 2 of those games, he caught his first pass in 4th qtr.

    Then you have someone saying you need a deep threat. Well that scenario works both ways. If MIA had a legit TE, that Safety wouldn't be able to sit on Hartline. Fasano's big catches, would be normal catches with a faster TE, because that TE wouldn't locked up with a LB. This past week, we all seen what a real TE does for his QB and offense as a whole. Fasano, isn't that type of weapon. Never has been never will be.

    People say MIA has bigger needs. Yet, teams like ATL and BALT went and drafted/aquired TE's that bust the seam and cause mismatches. Only in MIA can a corn fed recieving lineman get so much love.

    Coverage and playing against good LBs will make a mediocre TE disappear.
