Are the Baltimore tight ends really as bad as they look? Are they being failed by Caldwell's scheme? Here's an in-depth look at how the Ravens used Dickson and Clark against Chicago, what went wrong, and what (if anything) went right.

Great stuff. "Good scheming but ineffective personnel." That pretty much sums it up. Have to think things would have gone much better with Pitta involved.

The in-seam route with Dickson is where I thought he was going to build his career when drafted. All we heard was that he was too fast for LB's, and too strong for Safeties.

 

I wonder if the league's transition to a pass first league (and the corresponding result of smaller, quicker LB's) has impacted him (i.e, no longer being too fast for LB's)?

I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty pumped about this turn of phrase.

He literally can't catch the ball in that spot.  He still needs to fight through traffic there and have strong enough hands to make catches in tight windows (over the LB and under the safety).  His hands have really disappointed I think.
