Just because we haven't really seen anybody agree with this line of thinking doesn't mean its not right.....its not like we are on a Steelers board or anything.....

I reckon if we ran a poll on how strong the Pittsburgh TE unit is we'd get an illuminating response - bearing mind there is always a degree of homerism on every board.

That gives me an idea.....
actually sporting news agrees....after all they did rank them at 3....

seriously, litp, before you take your ball and go home, i really wanna know why heath miller was left off of this list of greatness you offered up:

Watson - 78 catches 1084 yards
Crumpler - 61 catches 785 yards
Gates - 105 catches 1353 yards
Gonzalez - 92 catches 989 yards

is it because all those you listed needed to sit around for a year in a reserve role to "learn" the offense?

or is it because it was unfair that h. miller has participated in (and won) about as many playoff games as those 4 combined?

maybe he was just the beneficiary of a great team.

oh wait. the steelers were a 6th seed wild card team.

beneficiary of a great qb?

oh wait. ben was just a 2nd year "game manager".

beneficiary of a great running game?

oh wait. it was old man 2nd stringer bettis and "flash in the pan" never been a starter and undrafted parker.

perhaps it was that great wr corps?

oh wait, it was el, ward and wilson.

it had to be the coaching staff right? or was it possible that the best collegiate te could actually come in as a rookie and prove his worth?

again, i still dont get what your list proved, although i think the intent was to show how "great" watson is/was.

next time you offer a list such as this to support a "point" try to be a little less see through and biassed. miller blew them all away when you compare their 1st seasons in the nfl. (in receiving and blocking) feel free to offer up the last rookie TE to have tha same impact in the nfl as miller. (just go on receiving stats, as i know that will bhe much easier for you).

what was that about steelers not knowing how to draft or utilize TE's?

Quite frankly, its a bit boring having to state, then re-state every point 3 or 4 times just so you can say the direct opposite.

I don't mind attempting to clarify what I have typed and debating its merits but I find we rarely get anywhere once you sink your fangs into a debate - back and forth, back and forth.

I look at the original article and see there is very lttle in the way of in depth explanation of why the rankings fell the way they did - yet I am supposed to give a thesis on my rankings?

You asked me to tell you why I ranked Pittsburgh below certain teams - and I did so - and the best you can manage in response is 'lol' and to state the opposite.

Its me doing all the work here while you pick and choose what to respond to.

I've said my bit on the subject.
Geez Louise, Nigel - Tony has a different opinion than you do - so what? This is, after all, a board of opinions.

If I were you, I wouldn't go bungee jumping any time soon.


and I most definitely would wear a turtleneck to bed at night.









BOO! (Bet you jumped, didn't ya?)

who knew having a differing point of view backed up with actual facts and supporting opinions would classify someone as a bloodsucking vampire? actually im beginning to wonder if i was being compared to an evil, hellish, mythical beast or the mass murderer vlad the impaler? im getting a complex here.

"i vant to suck yore blud.... BOO!"
