You are to be commended for changing your mind... and admitting it.Ive Been real hard on Gesicki, didn’t want anything to do with him coming out of penn state, thought he was a complete abomination as a blocker, “ worst I ever seen at the position” is what I said, thought he would be a tell every time he walked on the field, and didn’t think he could separate from NFL corners, and I hate one dimensional players, the tight end I lobbied for was Marc Andrews, who turned out what I thought he could be..all that being said, Gesicki reached a level that I didn’t think he would, so he’s proven me wrong already, looks like his arrow is pointing up and there’s more upside to reach as a receiver..
I won’t, don’t, never have considered him a tight end, to me he’s a big long flex receiver that can use his jumping ability to be attractive to the qb..I do think there is a zone, an area of space that ONLY he can get to, so if the qb knows how to be accurate and find that zone, to me that and his very sticky hands is the upside he presents..
I hope he continues to prove his critics like me wrong..He‘s likeable, a true blood dolphin, and plays with passion, just don’t put the kid inline, like that ****ing moron in New York did.
My point as OP was on him being named a Pro Bowler so to me that means he's a top 5 TE. Not delegated the 8th backup.Actually you are correct. With all the players who opt out of playing in the game or many pro bowlers who can’t play because they play in the SB the following week. Some players who finish 5th or 6th in the voting eventually get selected to play in the game.
Now someone is considered a pro bowl player even though he only played in the game because the players voted into the pro bowl don’t play in the game for one reason or another. So being considered a pro bowl
player today isn’t what is once was. There was a time when players selected to the pro bowl team actually showed up to play because they wanted and needed the extra money they received for playing in the game. With all the money players receive today, it is easy for most of them to skip playing in the game.
Well then Meat what would you like to discuss my friend? I mean here we are on a Dolphins fan site in June.....You’re asking how a bunch of uneducated dipshits are going to rate a guy they don’t know much about compared to a bunch of other guys they don’t know much about, based on how they perform in a season that hasn’t started yet.
This whole thing of getting voted to a joke exhibition game being a marker of quality is silly.
