They're terms that I find 1000 times cooler than "H-Back" or "Move" Tight End...but that's me!!
The most compelling Attributes of a Tight End, in the 21st Century, are, in my view, and in no particular order:
Blocking ~ Core Strength, Drive Power, Fluidity, and Combat
Release ~ How Adeptly he employs Burst, Core Strength, Fluidity, & Combat to Dust Off the Defender
Routing ~ How Adeptly ~ Crisply, Intelligently, and Reliably ~ he Runs the Route Tree
Separation ~ Fluidity & Ricochet ~ Explosiveness out'f'is Breaks
Catching ~ Reliability & Technique
Navigation ~ How well he Navigates the Field in Pursuit of Yards After Catch
Release ~ Terrific. Bursts right off the Line, and mauls anyone who gets in'is way. Great Paw Power & Athleticism.
Routing ~ Excellent. Knows his Routes. Disciplined. Savvy. Superior Instincts & Vision. Helps his QuarterBack.
Separation ~ Outstanding. Terrific Fluidity & Richochet in and out'f'is Breaks, and remarkable Savvy in all Aspects.
Catching ~ Good Hands. Reliable. And absolutely fearless.
Navigation ~ Awesome. Extremely hard to take down. Remarkably Serpentine in'is Moves. Surprising Acceleration.
And he has no peer as a classic Blocking/Receiving Tight End.
Not even close.
He's a consistently brutal, bruising Mauler as a Blocker, and he's a dangerously agile Router who surfs the Field with a remarkable level of Fluidity and Grace, yet can simply blast his way through Defenders.
He's equally formidable, either Beasting his way through a Block or a Defender, or employing his Athleticism to win.
He's a dedicated Craftsman in every single Aspect of the Game, and has clearly done serious drilling & studying in his Pursuit of Excellence...and he is a devoted TeamMate, with or without the Ball, and relentlessly gives his All.
He is The Complete Package.
I don't know what the Hell he did to get suspended for an whole Season, and his Silence is extremely troubling.
But I'm going to set that aside for purposes of this Prospectus, with the Caveat that if it turns out that whatever it was was something truly despicable...then All Bets Are Off.
But, having so stipulated...
This guy wreaks of Dominance.
