Why is everyone so down on shockey - he's the best

Postby migarvin » Fri Aug 20, 2004 2:21 pm

overrated shockey? Are you dumb - he will be the top tightend this year and mark my words. Just tune into his rookie year vs the texans and you'll see why he's the most dominant.

stockey's stats: (first 2 years)

2002 NY Giants 15 74 894 59.6 12.1 30 5.8 49 2 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 3 2
2003 NY Giants 9 48 535 59.4 11.1 46 4.0 29 2 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 1 1

gonzo's stats (first 2 and last 2 years)

1997 Kansas City 16 33 368 23.0 11.2 30 4.5 21 2 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 0 0
1998 Kansas City 16 59 621 38.8 10.5 32 3.9 33 2 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 3 1
2002 Kansas City 16 63 773 48.3 12.3 42 4.3 39 7 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 0 0
2003 Kansas City 16 71 916 57.3 12.9 67 4.9 48 10 0 0 0.0 0.0 0 0 0

If he stays healthy he'll be the best, contingent on manning hitting him int he redzone more than twice. His stats are clearly better than gonzo - especially considering gonzo has a better qb and rb to open it up. Shockey just has to locate where tiki barber fumbles the ball 4 times a game.

Why burn a 3rd round pick on gonzo whne you can get shockey in the 5th?

Umm, because Tony is only like 28, has scored improved his TDs from 6 to 7 to 10, while Shockey has scored no more then twice, has nagging injury problems, and also KC wasn't very good when Gonzo just started. So look for the normal 600+ yards, 2 TD season for Shockey because the Giants will not be seeing the red zone oftern while Gonzo will get nearly a 1000 yards and 8+ TDs. Just don't disappear, because I plan on making you eat crow pie at the end of the year.

There was no need to make yourself look immature twice by reposting this. Okay you like Shockey, that's fine. I think people are being unreasonable towards him.

All I'm saying is that there are plenty of TE's capable of putting up the same numbers that can be had much later in the draft. He does have a world class mouth though

what a funny guy. Whatever you say may king. I just think its ridiculous people are hating ont his guy. I live in NY and he's the only decent player to watch on the giants. He's real good. so he got hurt - he broke his rib! he'll be back and will outperfom gonzo this year.

We'll see in the end. He won't touch Gonzo's numbers. The Giants won't be near the endzone all year.

Shockey is a solid TE, but he will not only not challenge Gonzo in the slightest, he'll get beat out by Todd Heap, as well... And he'll be in a neck-and-neck dead heat for third with Kellen Winslow...
