    some recognition from espn:

    3. Evan Moore, Browns tight end: He’s caught defenses off guard in the past with his deceptive athleticism. But no one is overlooking Moore these days. He’s gone from a player who was cut by the Green Bay Packers in 2009 to someone who is living up to a two-year contract extension. Moore became the first Browns tight end with a touchdown catch in each of the first two games of a season since Ozzie Newsome did it in 1979.
    we need more of him, as he's clearly Browns best receiver!

    when even rotoworld agrees with us, you know it is on!

    Evan Moore played on just 8-of-72 offensive snaps in last week's win over the Dolphins.

    It's a mind-boggling number for a talented pass-catcher on a team devoid of that skill. Moore, who signed a two-year contract extension last month, indicated that he's talked to the coaching staff about his meager role. His snaps should rise as the year goes on, but for now Moore is unusable in fantasy.

    Maybe they discarded Moore so that they could use more blockers to try and open holes for Hardesty to run through, which they don't do for Hillis. I didn't watch the game so I'm just speculating.

    Evan Moore is frustrated and not afraid to tell the journalists so>

    Moore miffed too: Hillis wasn't the only one questioning his playing time. Evan Moore, who's been under-used, was also frustrated about getting only two of 61 balls thrown his way and catching one for 15 yards.
    "Yea, it's tough,'' he said. "Very tough.''
    Asked about his sporadic reps, he said, "Yea, I agree.''

    he also said, take it up with the coach, pretty much the same thins as Hillis who must have been real frustrated after receiving only 10 carries...

    rotoworld picked up on this as well, they've been lobbying pretty hard for him to get more passes:

    Browns TE Evan Moore expressed more frustration with his offensive role after seeing just two targets in Week 4 against Tennessee.

    Losing is only going to exacerbate situational players' frustrations, and the Browns are coming off a blowout loss to Tennessee entering a Week 5 bye. "It's tough, it's very tough," said Moore, who caught one pass for 15 yards and continued to play sparingly. Asked if he expects his role to grow after the off week,

    rotoworld is squarely in Moore's corner. weird!

    Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that TE Evan Moore will play more going forward.

    Anyone with two eyes can see that Moore needs to be a major part of the Browns' passing game. He has unique athleticism and hands for a guy that goes 6'6/250. As an elite red-zone target, Moore will be a TE2 with upside if Shurmur is true to his word. Moore was previously only playing a fistful of snaps per game.

    Moore has just evaporated.
    This is ridiculous, how can this be justified at all?
    Moore is the best receiver they have and has not been involved in the game plan from week 3 on!
    They have the most drops in the NFL and he is still riding pine. I just don't get how anyone can honestly say that all that matters is winning clearly there is an agenda.
