He's still a top 5 guy though. Just for his ability to play deep. There aren't many great safeties in the league.

I still don't agree with that. For this upcoming year I'd rather have Ray Lewis on my team than Reed.

Well that simply isn't true. His tackling has gone downhill since his neck injuries but he's still very much elite in coverage. Don't really see how that's disputable. He's just not capable at being as physical but he hasn't really lost a step athletically. I guess some people didn't seem to notice that in AFCCG, Aaron Hernandez (the most athletic TE in the NFL) was picking the Ravens apart for first down after first down in the first half. Second half, Ravens made an adjustment and manned Reed up on Hernandez a lot. He erased him in that half and made Hernandez a non factor.

Well first of all there basically is no tackling anymore. Everyone in the world knows where he is going to lineup and how he is going to be used on nearly every down. The AFCCG was one of those turn back the clock games for him. I agree with you that he was excellent. By far his best game of the year. But he can't give that to you every week anymore. Not even that close.

When did Aaron Hernandez become the most athletic TE?

I don't think Kam is there yet. Thomas no question. But the way PC uses Kam so close to the LOS in their base set, he's liked a extra MIKE most times and that's where he makes alot of his plays....within that 10 yard box. Im not sold on his deep-half abilities just yet.

If Vernon was anywhere near as fluid as Hernandez, he would have been the best TE in the NFL the past 3-4 years.

I get what your saying, but in the offenses he played in, it still would not have mattered because stats rule the day. And he would have never did what Gronk or Granham did this year in the offenses he played in. VD is the most athletic TE in the game though. Maybe not as fluid with his short-area quickness, but his triangle numbers are head and shoulders above everyone else's. If he didnt have such heavy feet and was a natural pass-catcher it would be illegal to put him on the football field because with his blocking, he would be the closest thing to dominat at the position.

Sorry I have a hard time believing Hernandez would have flourished the last three or four years on the 49ers. I'd like to see Vernon Davis the last four years on the Patriots.

Vernon Davis would be awful in New England. They run a choice route offense, Vernon Davis is too stupid to thrive in that system.

Where did this whole 'Vernon Davis is stupid' rhetoric come from? He played for Mike Martz, who alos runs a read-option system and there were never any problems with him not knowing the system. Martz couldn't use a TE to save his life so VD was used as a extra blocker or a decoy with his go routes most of the time but Martz never complained about him not grasping the system or its concepts. With all the different OC's he's played for, if VD were stupid we'd know by now. Never heard one OC call him out for not learning the playbook. Running a wrong route here or there, sure....but I contribute that to lack of concentration and focus at times, not smarts.

Meh his tackling is weak but I still trust him as the last line of defense. It isn't pretty but he gets the job done on most occasions. I guess he was moved around less this year (though let's not pretend he was Taylor Mays at USC and played 25 yards deep every snap of every game) but that was just as much a function of Bernard Pollard because Pollard as we know is a pure box SS (and he was actually very good for us in that role) but he doesn't give us the flexibility at safety we once had.

Something I've noticed around here and among "football heads" in general there is a tendency to underrate and undervalue high profile, older players. I think in a way whether people are doing it knowingly or not, because of things like the Top 100, Pro Bowl voting, Madden rankings, media hype, some "football heads" have a tendency to want to devalue those players too much in order to compensate. Just a thought that I think holds relevance with these top 10 lists.

There's a big difference btw that and what NE runs.
