    It's sad how people just forgot how great Gates really was.

    Carreer yes. Absolute prime? If Aliens came and challenged us, Gronk would be one of my first names on the team sheet.

    Gate was a GREAT, GREAT, GREAT player, but I don't see what argument there is for him being BETTER than Gronk. If you want to talk about overall career, sure, I will listen to that, but if you are making me pick between the two for one game, give me Gronk without hesitation. That's no disrespect for Gates.

    Of course.
    Algae Crumpler was great too

    But people really don't focus on TE like that once they're gone.

    Just look at Sharpe. :skip:

    Once gronk retired we were already onto Waller and Kelce.:yeshrug:

    Gates did everything better than Gronk. And Gates had puppy with perpetual diarrhea throwing him the football.

    I have to give it some use. It took me out when it was posted in the Met Gala thread the other night.:russ:.



    Anyways, as I said, Gates was elite. I just believe Gronk was better during his peak and prime. Hell, we'll see what happens this season. He had 90 yards and two TD's in his first game.:dead:.

    Gates is one of the worst blocking tight ends ever and Gronk is pretty good as a blocker

    Receiving I would say prime Gates is better but Gronk is closer to him as a receiver than Gates is to Gronk as a blocker

    I would say yes to Kelce but Kelce is only 31 and doesn't really block so he has a few more prime years left. It's a no to Gronk tho I do agree Antonio Gates does not get the credit he deserves as a TE.

    Gates was a better blocker than Gronk?? Gates having Rivers throwing him the ball is not a negative either
