I think that NE has the best TE in the league because they took a chance on him when nobody else was willing to.
I also think that it's worth noting that NE won the Super Bowl without that TE, and that Denver let their All-Pro TE walk the year before they won the Super Bowl.
I'm not saying that the position doesn't matter; I'm saying that incidence of great QB play is entirely separate from great TE play.
As to Buffalo's valuation on the position, they did give Charles Clay a top-5 TE contract, and he lead the team in catches last year, so it's not like they haven't valued the position.
And again, it wasn't a sleight at you; as I said: I know you have an affinity for the position.
Denver won a championship with good D, best in the league.
BB D doesn't get the credit it deserves with Tom Brady.
Picking two isolated cases/games the TE play wasn't a big factor in the outcome is reaching don't you think?
We're not just talking about the best teams in football.
TE security blanket is important to the success of a QB in my humble opinion.
K-Gun never happens without good play from the TE position.
and yes, guilty as charged...
