This shows some nice play breakdown from the Bills game last year when we had Spaeth, Miller, and Tuman on the field for a few plays. Interesting stuff! And maybe we'll see a few of these with McHugh on the field.

Terrific link SA. I think this shows the incredible difficulty and mismatch issues that come with trying to defend 3 TE sets. It's the bigger uglier sister of the 4 wide sets. These are both sets that are used to create mismatches. Running out of 4 wide sets can be very effective...due to nickle/dime packages and emphasis on stopping the pass. The opposite can be said about the 3 TE sets. Same idea different set.

Well when they drafted Spaeth I thought they were going to do alot of this and was very vocal and excited about it. But it seemed there was no use of TE's; at least from what my expectations were. Hopefully they try a bit more of this again.

And I bet McHugh is a better receiver than Tuman which potentially makes it even more dangerous. Ben just needs to temper his desire for big plays and take what the defense gives him and throw to the TEs more.

A three tight end set becomes even more productive with a WR like Hines Ward as the lone wideout...one as adept as he is at both blocking and moving the chains adds another dimension...
