It seems to go largely unnoticed by media and fans but the loss of Asiasi is showing up big time this year. Many of our TE's possess similar skills but none block well. Some credit Ty Wheatley with being a good blocking TE because of his size, but they're wrong. He's an ineffectual blocking TE. Played 8 plays vs Purdue and 4 of them came on last drive at mop up time with Peters at QB. Last night we saw him come off blocks that Asiasi would crush people. As an example, watch Isaacs fumble. Ty fails to sustain a fairly simple down block on Bachie who then eludes the block and rips the ball clean. If you're wondering why Wheatley isn't playing more it's not because of the wrap he wore on his forearm 2 weeks ago but because he's got work to do to become a decent blocking TE.
