How good would our offense be if we still had Tony Gonzalez?

        

 

Last year, our receivers set an NFL record in dropped passes. Our passing game didn't start to do anything, until towards the end of the season. Matt Cassel needed help out there. Our TE position was almost nonexistent. But, we also had a bad offensive line, had to suffer with LJ getting most of the carries throughout half of the season, and we didn't have a coordinator who wasn't also our head coach.

So my question is now, if we still had Tony Gonzalez, this upcoming season, how good would our offense be? First, let's look at our projected depth chart and plug Gonzo in there.

QB: Matt Cassel, Brodie Croyle, Matt Gutierrez
HB: Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones, Kolby Smith
FB: Mike Cox
WR: Dwayne Bowe, Jerheme Urban, Lance Long
WR: Chris Chambers, Terrence Copper, Quinten Lawerence
TE: Tony Gonzalez, Leonard Pope, Sean Ryan

LT: Branden Albert
LG: Brian Waters
C: Casey Weigmann
RG: Ryan Lilja
RT: Ryan O'Callaghan

That is a pretty nasty offense. Cassel has many weapons, like Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones, Dwayne Bowe, Chris Chambers, and even Tony Gonzalez. I think that offense, easily has playoff potential.

So what can this show us? This shows us how another solid receiving threat completes this offense. It could be a TE like Gresham, or a slot WR like Golden Tate. Maybe we trade for a TE like the bears Greg Olsen? One thing is certain though, Tony Gonzalez is not coming back, and we need another guy to make up for his loss. Hopefully, using one of our first 3 draft picks to do so.
