Ebron leads the NFL in touchdowns for a TE. I would say at this pace he is destined for the pro bowl.

My only question with Ebron, is why does he play such a low percentage of the offensive snaps? He routinely plays less than 25% of the offensive snaps.

He sucks at blocking?

But yet, he's better than any WR we put on the field, not named Hilton.

Article from IndyStar on why Ebron isn't playing more. I get that he may not be the best blocker, but he's been pretty unstoppable as a receiver. The coaches really need to work him in more, especially when the O goes stagnant like it did in the 2nd half last week.

Here's a scouting report on him:

http://www.sportsforecaster.com/nfl/player/11083

SCOUTING REPORT
Assets: Smooth, fluid, and a great athlete overall at tight end. Has deceptively excellent speed, runs efficient routes, catches the ball in stride, and accelerates impressively downfield. A big-play tight end, both in receiving ability and in deep-play potential. Has ideal raw size and the athleticism to be a star.
Flaws: Still needs to add more tools as a blocker, especially in terms of effort, technique, and physical bulk. While fluid and fast, he doesn't regularly show explosive quickness. Has the tools to be more physical with opponents in general.
Career Potential: Pass-catching 'move' tight end with stellar tools.


Just a theory on my part, but the fact that he's not playing more could be the carrot that gets him working harder on his blocking.

Lol......patsy learned how to be a douche well from the master douchebag.....

While a Lions team desperate for meaningful production out of the tight end position tumbled to its third straight loss Sunday, Ebron was catching two touchdown passes and running for another score in another brilliant showing. The performance prompted a Detroit Free-Press columnist to ask first-year Lions head coach Matt Patricia if Detroit regrets the decision to cut Ebron last March, given the way hes playing now.

Im not really sure what hes doing with the Colts, Patricia said. Or what the Colts are doing with him right now.

Yea, bullshit... I'm prety sure Matt Patricia or his staff knows exactly what's going on with every team. I like MP, but that doesn't mean I cant smell it.

Man, I just checked is stats, and in 4 years at Detroit he has 11 TDs, this year he has 9.

Coaching might matter.
