Um... it wasn't me who was claiming that Zach Miller was a "top-5 TE". He's good... the best receiver the Raiders had last season... but he is not among the league's "top 5 TEs".... even if a Raider homer does stretch the truth to make that claim.ROFL. Cute list.
Sorry, but I like my Tight Ends to be able to BLOCK and Catch. Guys like Brent Celek, and Dallas Clark are only RECEIVING tight ends. They don't block anybody.
Zach Miller not only is a great receiver, but he is also a great blocker. He is an all around TE, not just a one dimensional player. And I doubt ANY of those guys on that list besides Jason Witten and Gonzalez would've put up better receiver numbers than Zach if they played for the Raiders. Zach Miller had nearly 900 receiving yards with JaMarcus Russell throwing him the ball. That's impressive.
Wrong. Clady is much better.They are both solid players. Clady is a bit better.
His numbers do not support a claim of "solid". Again, he's a project and can maybe develop into a "solid" WR. But he's not there yet.Did I say he was a great receiver? No. I said he's solid, which he is. With a better QB, like Jason Cambpell, look for Higgins to put up closer to 500 yards next year.
Michael Bush plays in a RBBC offense. He'll never be "generally" viewed as "great" as long as he's sharing touches with Darren McFadden and Justin Fargas.Again, if you ever watched Michael Bush play, you would agree with me that he's a great back. He just never gets enough carries or else he would be widely recognized as one of the best backs in the league.
And LOL at putting Slowshon Moreno and Michael Bush in the same sentence. That's insulting. Seriously, it is. When Slowshon can average over 4 yards a carry for an entire season, then we'll talk.
Moreno was just a rookie; yet he still was .2 YPC off your conveniently-placed "4 yards a carry" benchmark at 3.8. And while Moreno also shared touches with Correll Buckhalter and LaMont Jordan, his numbers in a single season are close to Bush's for two years.
Bush: 218 carries; 1010 yards; 6 touchdowns
Moreno: 247 carries; 947 yards; 7 touchdowns.
Anyway... shouldn't you be hyping McFadden instead of Bush? Maybe not... cause he's looking like maybe he might be the Raiders' next highly-paid, highly-touted first round draft bust to be cut loose.
And your perspective is Raider-skewed. At best.At best.
