    Jay could always ask his brother if there’s any QB that Jon likes.

    If they needed a burnt out substance abuser who doesn’t like to practice and is a problem in the locker room … then yes.

    Hmph. Must be talking strictly TD receptions.

    1 Gates 189 for 2643 and 26 TDs
    2 Gonzales 249 for 2581 and 22 TDs
    3 Witten 269 for 2984 and 15 TDs

    No, they’ll have to pay him.

    JaMarcus Russel has a better chance of re-signing with the Raiders than Randy (I’ll take your money and refuse to play) Moss.

    Seems like your splitting hairs here.

    Gates missed 6 games in 2010. The point is who has been the most productive and in overall games played Gates has been more productive than Witten and Gonzalez.

    Can’t be very productive from the training table, can ya? All I said was they must be going on TDs alone, and the author obviously did. There’s more to it than that and none of it shows up on any stats sheet. The qualifier is “receiving tight ends”. Blocking is part of the job description and the author of the article himself says about Gates “He won’t be appearing on the list of blockers (for good reason – it’s as bad a part of his game as receiving is good)”.

    I don’t really have a problem with Gates or Gonzales over Witten, just seems overly simplistic to split the rankings between receiving TE’s and blocking TE’s, then declare only the receiving TE’s to be the “productive” TE’s. Witten’s #3 on the receiving list behind what’s basically a really big WR that can’t block (Gates) and a future Hall of Fame traditional TE (Gonzales) and #2 blocking TE behind a glorified tackle (Kleinsasser) so I’m pretty happy with that.

    “Has Jeremy Shockey totally solved the Panthers’ needs at tight end?”

    No. He will likely create new problems. The Saints were only able to get something out of him because of the strong quarterback presence. He’s going to eat Cam Newton or Jimmy Clausen alive just like he did with Eli Manning. He’s injury-prone and borderline washed up. He’s not a star tight end any more but he could have contributed on another team. He and Carolina are not right for each other.

    Please don’t treat stupid tweets from twits as news.They contain less info than your by-line. Bad journalism.

    Are we sure he was talking about Randy Moss. Tafur lists Moss as the #1 option if the Raiders signed a veteran WR. But Santana Moss is also a free agent and had a very good connection with Jason Campbell, when they were both in Washington. I’m not ruling out that it is Randy, for the simple fact that Davis blamed himself for not providing Randy with the help needed to succeed in Oakland. He said as much during the Cable inquisition.
