    David Paulson > Leonard Pope???

    David Paulson was our #2 Tight End yesterday.
    Noticed him mostly in the Double TE Wing Formation and he got his first career catch.
    Leonard Pope was nowhere to be seen.

    So with Saunders coming back this week, who's off the roster????

    Probably Paulson because isn't Pope the guy Haley brought in ? Haley was probably allowing Paulson some audition time before he sends him to the back of the line. Unemployment line that is. Wonder if they would or could place him on the practice squad ? To guess at my own question and please don't let this stop anyone from their opinion but, to answer my own question Paulson was probably only taken and considered to be a team entity only up to the time Saunders returns.

    I disagree fezz.

    I think paulson has looked pretty good and could develop into something down the road.

    pope adds nothing to this roster.

    Oh I hear you and I agree he looks good and could amount to something good for this team. I just don't think that will be enough to get around the buddy influence of Haley and Pope.

    Not a bad place to be when the 4th string TE is outplaying the 3rd string. Pope/Paulsen... whichever deserves the spot is fine. To be honest- thought Pope played alright the last game he played.

    Hoping Paulson sticks, for the youth and the upside I think he has. Been unimpressed with Pope, nothing he has done stands out positive, except he occupies vertical space more than most. It appears he is not going to be used as a RZ target, which was the one value I thoought he might uniquely offer.

    Pope is rated higher on Madden. Cutting Pope will kill my 2 TE sets on Madden!!!
