Just call him #89

12/25/08: Gilbrown, wake up and exploit your TE

Folks, I'd like to think that we are smart, but that isn't it. It's that Gilbrown has the freaking hand dealt to him, Toomer knows it, Banks knows it, .. BAVARO KNOWS IT. This is not rocket science. If you are a good coach you leverage what you are given. The vacuum that was Burress had answers, don't let them fool you. Do you want Bavaro to spell it out in any more blunt terms than he already has:

"I don't think he needs to improve, I think he's very good now," Bavaro said. "If he was back with us, (offensive coordinator) Ron Erhardt and (quarterback) Phil Simms, he would have my numbers and more. But a lot of it depends on the game plan."

What an astute observation:

"He has a natural feel for the position," Bavaro said. "Jeremy Shockey was kind of like a bull charging through a china shop, but Kevin meanders his way around through open spaces. He doesn't draw a lot of attention to himself, which is an asset as a tight end because you want to sneak up on people. Plus, he has great, soft hands."

Because he was such a beast once he caught the ball, I'm still always surprised, despite his novel and his work on Wall Street, at how smart Bavaro is.
