If he reaches 1000+ and 14 TDs, setting the NFL and franchise records.. well.. Krizay, who I'm sure already realizes by now how worth it it was to make the Vernon pick over any other player at that spot, will be able to fully accept that fact.
"It's not about the numbers"
No more lame excuses, just admit you were wrong.
LOL so now that's a lame excuse? Before this year it was the rule to live by!
I was wrong about him actually putting these numbers. Though my stance remains. I agreed that if he was thrown as much as you guys wanted he would put up the numbers. Just like other TE's around the league. The mere fact that it's gong to take him 14 games to surpass EJ's yardage mark and 16 to reach his catch mark only helps my point. The only difference is TD's. If we had joe schmo playing TE and all we did was throw to joe schmo in the redzone then Mr. Schmo would have all those td's as well. The problem is we don't have Joe Schmo on our team. Thus, my argument will never stick because all things aren't equal.
So arguing my stance this year would be like trying to play kick ball in the middle of the busiest street in NYC. No matter what points I make it will go unnoticed due to the amount of traffic.
