this ranking is based on AFC units, so lj smith, c. cooley, j. witten, and j. shockey dont even belong in the discussion (although i'll take the steelers 3 te's over theirs any day)
To be honest, I didn't even realize that it was AFC

I hope we are ranked 3rd by the end of this season, but as of now I think is too high.

I went ahead and added "AFC" to the thread title, Tony.

Does slipping a bit mean that you still caught 73 passes for 900 yards and 5 tds?
I hope that Heath Miller slips enough this upcoming season to catch atleast that many .. to help take some pressure off of Hines and Holmes...

He wouldn't be slipping if he equaled his 2006 TD total, which is 5 - the same # of TDs that Gonzo caught in KC. The most notable difference? Heath didn't have the yard totals that Gonzo did last season but other than Gonzo and Kennison, who really did Green and Huard have as a reliable target on that squad? Ben has more options at wideout, imho, so of course Heath isn't going to get the yardage totals that Gonzo has. Ben has the benefit of having more targets.

With all due respect, wedo, I recanted my original position in the same post:

His TD production is still down, but drawing automatic double coverage makes a difference in the red zone where the field gets really short. And his receptions, total yards, and YPC numbers are still just above his career averages, which clearly doesn't really show he's slipped, not at all.

Wow...

This is starting to sound like a Patriots version of "My TE can beat up your TE."

the inferiority complex and delusions of granduer are almost embarrasing.

you would think having the "best" owners, coach, qb, kicker, rb duo, lb corps over the age of 30, wr's, dynasty, chance in 07, and fanbase, would be enough for them.

im thinking most patfans would even argue (for hours) that they have the best equipment managers and jockstrap scrubbers in the league too.

Nope, Tom Brady proved that the Pats "Equipment managers" aren't always there with the um... "Proper equipment."

Of course... Proper equipment would not be needed if she showed enough class to put a ring on her finger first.

And yeah.. I really believe that.
