Dennis Pitta came through in a major way for us today. He provided an excellent, middle of the field weapon for us, and actually brought some good stability back to the TE position. How much of an impact do you see him having for us the rest of the way, and is he the spark the offense was sorely missing??

He seemed to be one of those missing keys on 3rd downs.  While he was obviously shaking off some rust, Flacco had no issues throwing to him.  He provides another red zone target as well.

 

That diving catch was a beauty, too.

Pitta's play on the field and intangibles to the team make a difference to the offense, especially Joe knowing that he has 88 on the field during a high pressure play....just wish that the D had that type of inspiration/motivation to knock some folks around or at the very least wrap up on first contact.

We missed him so much. Just think of all the close games we lost. (Every one but Denver).

Without him, it would've most likely been the same story.

He took a lot of big hits today too. I'm glad he got right back up!

The Pitta power definitely showed in his first game back.  Joe loves that dude.  Made many clutch catches after shaking off the rust early on.  

 

Big addition down the stretch.

His return allows Ray Rice a better chance to run, too, since the LBs have to stay back.

He plays today solidified my opinion that we need to draft marquise lee. Route running and having that smarts to get open are key. Pitta excels at just creating a window for joe to hit. We badly need a wr to do that

I think we are fine with Marlon Brown & Torrey. Torrey has improved his route running a lot and Marlon is coming along great! I'd like to see us be able to keep Jacoby next season and our need at WR will depend on that IMO. We do still have Thompson & Mellete who both show promise as well.

 

It is one of the things that I think we do not do correctly. I'd much rather see us utilize our young talent than bring in these veterans to take away playing time.

The first testicular guard, the "Cup" was used in hockey in 1874. The first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took men 100 years to realize their brain was also important.

Flacco stood around looking for open receivers for much of the first half. I like Jacoby, but a kick returner is no replacement for a legit #2. We need to pick up a good WR in the next draft.

we are far from fine at receiver. Torrey drops too many passes to be dependant upon. We need someone else

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

 

The problem I see is that Torrey is not yet a true #1. Jacoby is doing fine as a #2. He's improved his routes, he is finally starting to make catches with his hands and sees more separation than anyone else so far.

 

As I said, even if we do not manage to keep Jacoby, we already have Marlon Brown, Deonte Thompson & Aaron Mellete. I see nothing that would prevent Marlon from being a #2 next season.

 

we are far from fine at receiver. Torrey drops too many passes to be dependant upon. We need someone else

 

That's true and that is why I think the real issue is that Torrey is not yet a true #1, not that Jacoby isn't a true #2.
