Jermaine Gresham needs to step up in both areas catching the ball and run blocking. He has made a few nice plays in the first few games and has 12 first down catches, it’s the routine stuff that seems to trip him up. They keep asking him to block these defensive ends and he keeps getting beat.

Of course, I would never say it to his face, but sometimes Jermaine plays like he’s 5’11 195 lbs and not 6’5 255. He waits for the ball to come to him and lets the defensive back get around him to break up the pass. Time to step up Jermaine.

Kyle Cook. Yes, some people may say Gresham, but he just hasn’t had many passes thrown his way, which could just be a scheme problem. But back to Cook, he had his best game of the season against the Bills, and needs to continue to do so. Dalton struggles greatly with pressure up the middle. If Cook can block well, expect Dalton to do very well.
