    New Breed of Tight End

    Was reading an article on the NY Times ( subscription ) that the only to truly stop these guys is to press them at the line and disrupt the timing. They are not the quarter horse type of receiver and take a little longer to get up to speed.
    It might seem obvious but John Lynch ( not a bad safety [6]and Bobby Beatherd both feel they are given way too much of a free release. You cannot let these guys get into the holes in a zone untouched in any way. Vernon Davis might not be the Gronk or J Graham but we'll see how we defend him this weekend......................................

    You're right, he is better than Jimmy Graham.

    Davis is a beast but so is Ballard he may not be as fast as those guys but he's tough to get on the ground...

    [/quote]The way you defend against TE like these is to bring pressure so they keep them back for extra protection.

    I've always thought he was the best tight end in the game.

    I don't know. Gronk seems to be a Frankenstein character : size, speed and an unearthly athletic ability. ( Got to hand it to Belacheat drafting him and Hernandez and redoing the position...or at least what can be done there )

    I would say the most athletic. He can be a little frustrating at times. Looks unstoppable like he did against the Saints, and then sometimes makes bonehead plays or has hand troubles.

    A beast though, that's for sure.
