    Back to back joke posts that weren't even replies to anyone, are you working on material for a Netflix standup special?

    Everyone can knock this guy, but I'm very intrigued. If he gets up to par it's gonna be like lining up 6 olinemen and still having all your revieving threats.

    The league never saw anything like this. Could be game changing. Imagine a lineback or safety having to Honor Gathers in coverage meanwhile he's crushing these guys in the run game. Oh yeah, what about throwing jump balls when he got a 6'0 cat matchup. This guy can be a d coordinators worst nightmare.

    Now imagine that Rico's development is legit...

    Not only will the Cowboys have one of the greatest O- lines in history, they have enhanced effectiveness by including a strong physical TE. This essentially makes it a six man offensive line on running plays and how is he going to be covered in the endzone on passing? I mean the guy is a basketball player he has to have a devastating vertical leap.

    He might be our budget-Gronk. Rob is 6'6, 265. Gronk

    This hype machine is just getting started. You all know that don't you?

    The 6-8 is from basketball where they measure with shoes on even when they are accurate. He was measured 6-6 273 last year.

    I think the league has seen it with Gronk who it about the same exact size as Gathers. He's really the prototype for Gathers.

    Gathers is a couple inches and about 15-20 lbs bigger than Gronk. I think Gronk is probably a little more athletic and Gathers is a bigger guy just from their body types. Regardless I don't think we need to draft a tight end.

    Well, Tapper seems to be "Gather"ing steam, but then Gathers may well be "Tapp" into his vast potential. Put the two of them in a poll and each will probably get about 80% of the vote! :)

    I'll admit it. I am excited about Gathers.

    And Tapper.

    I'll probably end up being disappointed by both but their athleticism has me giddy.

    It's no crime to be optimistic about the young players.

    No matter what some will try to tell you.
