Is the starting TE next season. Someone save this thread.:up:
Any facts to back up your claim? He hasn't shown us anything to prove you right thus far. I hope you're right though.

NEVER going to happen.
I hate to be the spelling/grammar Nazi here, but dude...learn how to spell "guarantee"!!!
If hes the starting TE then something has gone wrong in the off season IMO.
Thank you, finally someone who is positive. I agree, I think Egnew has potential. On any other team he would be contributing, but we all know how weird and philosophical Philbin is. I mean Miller barely gets playing time cause he cant block, Reggie got benched cause he fumbled once. But I think Philbin will give Egnew a shot next year.
While I hope you're right (who likes blowing a 3rd round pick?), but the odds are better that he doesn't even make it thru the first round of cuts in camp next season. Hell, he might not even make it to camp.
He's been working on his blocking. They kept him this long for a reason.
. If Ireland is still gm he just might
Love it Dude! Counting on a 3rd Round Bust who did not hit the Field all Year until Today...Nice!
They kept him this long b/c it's hard to cut a 3rd round pick and admit you totally missed the boat on a guy when your roster has gaping holes in talent, especially at TE. There's no depth or talent behind Fasano, so keeping him for the year really didn't mean anything. In watching Hard Knocks, i thought he was going to get cut.
I think the only reason he stayed around was as a backup. I like Fasano but there are better options out there. If he can't earn some more playing time from Fasano I don't see him starting next year. There will be better options out there
Well now i feel really good knowing you're defacto guaranteeing Ireland is gonna pass up all the quality TE's in FA and the draft.
agreed, he'll start… Arena league ball (if there's Arena ball at all)
Hopefully our starting TE next year is someone who hasn't been drafted yet such as Tyler Eifert or Zach Ertz, all while Egnew having cleaned out his locker.
Eggnog will be an all pro next year according to finheaven, yay
Hopefully needed the year to hit the weights.
I'm done with the Fasano era.
If he was as bad as half the people on here think he'd've been cut already. People expect far too much in someone's first season.
Never happen. Egnew isn't even that good offensively. At least, if you're going to be a rookie TE who can't block, your offense better be amazing or else why the hell are you even in the NFL. Nevermind the fact that he was a 3rd rounder......
Fasano is better than him. I hope he proves all of us wrong and somehow gets his butt on the field and becomes the starter.... but I just don't see it.
You know, the Colts screwed us hard. They got Andrew Luck, AND they took two TE's in the 2nd round. Fleener and Allen. Fleener got injured in rookie year but Allen looked good. We got stuck with Egnew as a result. If the Colts had only taken Fleener, we would have gotten Allen and we would be sittin pretty at TE right now.
They kept him this long because they shipped their pro bowl WR for 2 picks and one of those picks were used for him. This guy is going to get chance after chance because of it.
All season there were reports he didn't practice well and wasnt earning the opportunity to be active on Sundays. In other words the coaching staff didn't believe he could contribute positively. With that said, a shot next year? Can we really afford to take that chance unless we drastically upgrade the position (I mean someone better than fasano)? This team needs to get better next year and I'm not sure egnew helps that cause.
That is why I think he will start next year. Look, Philbin must see something here especially if the reports were bad practices and he's still on the payroll. I think they love his talent and knew going in he was a project for a year. They probably have him on a weight gaining regime and other goals. Hey,they drafted him and didn't draft any other WR, that tells me they had every intention on throwing the year away to acquire draft picks and get cap friendly.
