How are the giants #2! they should not be that high the last two seasons shockey hasn't been great and Boss Played ok in the playoffs. they should not be #2
Shockey's the best blocking starting TE and Boss proved he can make plays in the passing game. Shockey's stats have gone down the last 2 years, but that's because he's been used a lot more as a blocker and decoy.
Shockey while overrated as a pass catcher, is probably the best run blocking "pass catching" TE in the league, and is still a very solid/above average pass catcher. The thing to remember is our offensive scheme is not build for a TE to thrive, thats why Shockey always bitches so much. Its not a TE offense.
I'm not so sure if Shockey is overrated as a pass catcher. He may not stretch the seams like he used to when he was younger (before a handful of injuries), but I think he could do more. But as you said, the offense isn't geared on getting the most out of him as a receiver.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
Tight end blocking is about as important as wide receiver blocking in today's NFL.
Not in the giants scheme, Shockey's a huge part of our dominant run game. If you don't believe me go check Jacobs' stats after Shockey went down, with no one to seal the edge Jacobs wasn't nearly as effective.
Potential shouldnt be enough to be ranked 4th though. You can have all the talent and potential in the world, if u dont show it, u shouldnt be ranked that high
Well regarding Davis there really isn't any question about what he can do. I suppose you can say if the stats aren't all there, then he and the rest of the tightends on his team shouldn't be ranked so high.
