The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A Tight End

Posted on: May 2, 2008 10:09 am

Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Until the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate every ones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

16th Position- Tight End     Vote for the best Tight End of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choice feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted on for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who is our Tight End?

Please remember to rate this blog entry, and all comments as I appear to be losing value points for doing this blog, I happen to believe a lot of you enjoy it however, so I will continue even though I may be a rookie by the time it is over!

Tony Gonzalez.

I know he's active, but he was a true first option for a decade for the Cheifs.

Woohoo!  I remembered who I was thinking of as the "other" tight end with Casper on the Raiders!

Raymond Chester.  19.5 ypc average one year as a TE.  And then he went to the USFL's Oakland Invaders.  Probably not a good career move.

Still, 48 career touchdowns for a "second" tight end is pretty darn good......

John Mackey did it all. The complete Tight End. Talk about revolutionizing the position!
