I agree, we miss his abilities to block from the 12 personnel. The problem was though that he always blocked inline, and never played the F-role. For as good as an inline blocker he was for some reason that couldn't carry over into him also being a F-back blocker. I'd take MB as the second TE over Phillips - no question despite some of his shortcomings. They are and as the GM said publicly that's just a bonus. Why? Because the Giants do not use the TE as much the Cowboys do. They sure as hell do not use MB to draw double coverage away from WRs. MB also went through a dry spell of catching TDs from Week 4 - 12. He just caught a TD in the WAS game after the Redskins completely blew a coverage in the redzone. It's good to see MB get some opportunities and a fresh start but let's not act like the Giants are making him a superstar because quite simply he's not even close to that type of talent. I saw another pass clank off his hands much like the way it did when he was here. When I saw that I chuckled to myself and told a co-worker that it's the same old MB.
