    Just make an "edge" position on the all-pro list.

    Kittle had like 40 more yards yet 5 less TD and 15 less receptions.... Kelce had 1 more 100 YD game with another 2 at 99 & 95... Kelce was the easy choice. Take away that 1 game vs Denver and Kittle's stats are a lot less impressive.

    You can't cherry pick like that. And even without that Denver game he's over 1000 yards.

    Kelce had Mahomes and his 5000 yards and 50 td's, and one of the best receivers in football. Kittle had 3 different qb's, and the 49ers top wr put up 484 yards.

    You still need to be good on both sides of the ball. The Saints, Chargers, and Colts are all top 10 in weighted defensive DVOA to go along with their high ranking on offense. The Seahawks were actually 9th in offense and lost to the 23rd ranked Cowboys. Also, three of the top five offenses haven't even played yet.

    If Parkey doesn't hit the upright, does he still send out that first tweet?

    Kittle, Kelce, and Ertz all had great seasons. I would be fine giving the edge to Kittle mainly because he's the best blocker, but you can't really go wrong with any of those guys.

    Some good tight ends these days in the NFL. Kittle or Kelce you can't go wrong with either.

    Craig Whelihan rejoices. :sarcasm:

    He had four picks in that game. I remember seeing highlights of it after it happened.

    RIP.

    No, but you're shoving counting stats down my throat, so I provided context.

    Kelce was a better fantasy player of the two this year. Kittle was the better te of the two and did more with less. Only Christian McCaffery had more total yards after the catch than Kittle.

    Kelce was a game breaker this year and was clearly the superior player. While you can go ahead and complain that he had an elite QB/team mates, thats also the reason why Kittle had higher counting stats.

    How was he clearly the superior player?

    Kittle: Better blocker, more yards, more YAC, worse QBs (3 different ones).

    Kelce: More TDs?

    'Cause he says so!

    Kittle had more yards because he had more yac than any player except for a rb who caught dumps out of the backfield all game. The fact Kelce has 15 more catches but less yards only shows how much more valuable to his team and offense Kittle was than Kelce.

    Hmmm. Outspoken opponent of NFL/political policy is "suddenly" selected for a "random" drug test. Sure, that seems totally legitimate and not at all deliberate.

    Pardon me for being a teensy bit skeptical.

    If I'm not mistaken he was selected 7 times in 11 weeks.

    Nobody believes that's random. The league office doesn't have one single shred of integrity.

    So the NFLPA is in on it your saying?

    The fact this statement is joint from NFL/NFLPA says a lot but of course that aspect will be overlooked

    I was planning on just ignoring the topic, but the whole Eric Reid topic has grown tiresome to me.

    You have a guy that has complained about his on-field fines for his hits and now complained that random drug testing is targeting him. It's a certain type of person/attitude who thinks this way and obviously he's been very successful, but I just can't stand this way of thinking.

    Cut through the bull****, are you telling me it's believable that out of the 65-70 players on an NFL roster (because practice squad and IR guys are subject to testing as well) that one single player got "randomly selected" 7 out of 11 times?

    The odds against that have to be astronomical.

    And don't even talk about the players' union, they've been carrying the league's water for years.

    Even if you go with the high # of 70 players he has a 14% chance of being picked each week. So getting picked 7 out of 11 weeks (if he's telling the truth) is obviously quite high as it should be around 2.. but it's not impossible.

    TL;DR, Panthers don't want him back but he doesn't want to retire. He's sure not what he used to be, but this seems like a bad move on the part of the Panthers
