Winslow has got some talent..you can't deny that. I'm fortunate enough to have both Winslow and Gates on my team.

Had a chance to acquire either one. Went with the best TE in GATES. KW2 should shut his mouth and let his play speak for him. Gates is pumped up for this game and I bet the SDC D is really pumped for this kid. I'll take a proven player who hasn't reached his full potential yet.

Gates easily wins this debate. His last two seasons have been some of the best a TE has ever put up. Winslow went bust for two years, and now that he has posted some good numbers this year he claims himself as the best. I hope Gates shuts him up in this one.

Winslow will have better numbers this weekend. San Diego will control and be ahead the whole game and Cleveland will have to throw to catch up meaning more opps for K2. But, Gates will "win" the game.

When Gates scores a TD this weekend, for a celebration he should stick his arms straight out with clenched fists like he's riding a motor cycle and then run straight ahead into the bleacher wall behind the field goal post and fall straight onto his back...

I bet that would shut Winslow up/

You know there really isn't as much disparity in their numbers as I would have expected.

Gates is 32 catches for 384 yards and 4 TDs

Winslow is 40 catches for 393 yards and 3 TDs

Are people are riled up against Winslow because of his mouth? I'm actually suspecting it's because they spent a 2nd or 3rd round pick on Gates and don't like that a 12th round pick is doing just as good. I know I wouldn't like it, just the way it pains me to see Marques Colston up in the top eschelon of WRs.

I bet it wouldn't, but that would be hilarious. I'd pitch in for the fine if he does this. ;-D

Unfortunately for Winslow. Gates for starters plays on a better team. I think Gate's more athletic, and quicker as well.

Hmmmmm, excellent point. It appears KW2 has a lot of hate on here because of his mouth. Unfortunately folks, numbers don't lie.

Gates is great, but on a run first team (with the best one out there, why not run). KW2 is the number 1 target on a crappy team, usually playing from behind.

Numbers are numbers fellas! Although I agree Gates is more proven and at this point more talented, I'd rather have KW given his situation.
