during his career as a NYG not one player went about his business like a warrior more than TE Mark Bavaro...he played non-flashy, gritty, tough as nails throw back football...the way the game was intended to be played...

 

he was the complete package, a great blocker, run and pass, and exceptional reciever with speed...he was nicknamed Rambo, and his signature was carrying multiple would be tacklers for yards upon yards after contact...i can remember clear as yesterday receptions like the one vs. Washington and the one vs. San Fran. when he carried about 5 guys for additional yardage...he punished tacklers, got up and went back to the huddle...he had done it before time and time again...he was no cheerleader, which made him all the more fearful...you never knew what he felt...he played with injuries and did not complain...he was a rock

 

Mark Bavaro gets my nod in a heartbeat...

Bavaro would tougher than Shockey, blocked better than Shockey, was a better receiver than Shockey, was a much better teammate than Shockey, and finally he would have been with his teammates working out and developing chemistry with his QB - not partying in Miami ignoring his coaches and team like Shockey. Bavaro was John Wayne - Shockey is Dennis Rodman.

Ando now for something completely similar to the last thing he posted...(drum roll, please!)

 

Here are some questiosn for you:

1. How is the TE position different in this era from thos past?

2. What's different about the TE role in our offense than those of Parcells?

3. In the only year Shockey didn't make the PB, was his role more or less like it was

the years before and since?

4. Why is it that you write about things that you don't understand?

 

Isn't there a plague that befalls people (like you) with such a committment to being an annoyance to good people?

Ok I'll take that, Dennis Rodman was one of the best defenders to play the game

John Wayne was just some actor

At this point I'd still vote for Bavaro as the better tight end too. However Shockey, barring injury, has a lot of football left. I'd also say there's plenty of room to be a real good tight end in the NFL without being better than Mark Bavaro. Nothing to be ashamed about here. If Shockey's being compared to Bavaro it's only because he's shown he can be a similar type of impact player. Like I said, nothing wrong with that!

i dont really care what sort of "roll" the TE plays in modern football vs. 15 years ago...some things never change, like charector, pride and heart...

 

these are intangiables that Bavaro had and only Shockey could dream of having...

 

the roll of the TE in todays scheme is really an over hyped one...if you have a dominant RB and at least one dominant WR, your TE should serve the purpose of blocker first, reciever 2nd...

 

TE's seem to come out of every draft now-adays following the Shockey mold...id be the first person to package him up and ship him out draft day if it meant being able to draft what could be a great LB in A.J. Hawk...

Yeay, Floyd contradicts himself, he's not a very cogent debator. I will say this, he is consistant in his dedication to being wrong.

 

Look at his quote above, this is a clear misunderstanding of the way football changes. Next thing you know he will be writing, "why don't we hand off to the FB more often?"

 

This is just a dumb post that has literally no purpose. It's like arguing who's better Joe Montan or Tom Brady...stupid argument, how would you ever acount for free agency.

 

can't one of Floy's sign-in's be smart?

1. Today the TE position is manned by a lazy Metro-sexual, with Bavaro they had a real football player.

 

2. In Parcell's day the TE both blocked and received passes - Bavaro did both well and never dropped balls - today the postion is manned by a whiner, who drops passes and throws hissy fits on the field, on the few occasions he isn't injured.

 

3. When Bavaro made the pro bowl he earned it and showed up in Hawaii to play - Now the voting includes fans and is more of a popularity contest - Shockey blows off pro bowls to party in Miami.

 

4. I am of the FAB 4 - there is nothing that we DON'T understand.

you can't really compare the two. shockey gave us a whole other aspect of our offense. bavaro was there in a smashmouth style that parcells implemented. look at what our offense does without shockey... not much. bavaro wasn't flashy, no, but he wasn't asked to be. shockey is. we've asked shockey to do different things than bavaro was in his days. also remember that tight ends back then weren't what they are today. now they're big and fast with good hands, back then their roles as a receiver were much more limited.

Bavaro was a great Giant who we will never ever forget

Shockey is a very good Giant who will probably turn out to be great and we will remember forever

I am proud to be a Giants fan who will have great memories of them both

Sadly, Lockhart & Co have nothing but hatred for Shockey , Eli , Joseph , Carter , Feely , EA etc.. etc......

The offense did a lot without Shockey, Plaxico and Eli for almost half the season - Tiki was the Giant offense for most of the year.

yes, tiki was a great part of the giants offense, but it also took out half of our offense. before plaxico came, we didnt score half as many points with shockey sitting on the sidelines. just admit that defenses have to focus on him and spread the field, opening the field for tiki and burress when he is in

At the end of the season I saw opposing defenses putting 8 in the box to stop Tiki, DARING Eli to throw. Teams were scared of the Giant rushing game, but not the passing game - go back and look at the 2nd Redskin or the Carolina game.
