Are you kidding me? That's absolutely ridiculous!

You need to swap Fred Baxter with Chris Baker.  They are totally in the wrong order.  Are you out of your mind???

Other than that, carry on.  Looks good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

:D

PS - When do you rank our long snappers?  I'm going to take off work that day.

Dustin Keller should be rated higher....  and that Namath guy , maybe is in the range of 6 or 7.

Johnny Mitchell was more talented than all of them. 

What a talent he was. Fantastic start to his career, then a complete flameout. 

That 3 TD, 140-something yard game he had against the Eagles was a thing of beauty.

I'd slip Johnny Mitchell in around #5. Herndon already deserves to be ahead of the likes of Baxter and Cumberland. 

Oh, and Wesco is a future HoF'er. 

Imagine Jeff Cumberand being a top 10 anything anywhere?

Richie Anderson /Matt Snell

 /list

Don't laugh but Ty Montgomery is going to be our Richie Anderson 2019 version. Anderson was a fullback in roster name only, the guy slipped out of the backfield for a zillion little catches. I think Vinnie was looking for him the entire 2nd half of the Monday Night Miracle.

Hey Sarge, the list is just fine, although I agree with @slats that you could slip Johnny Mitchell in there at #5.  That would drop Keller back to 6, where he probably belongs.  Forget the rest, they really don't rate.  

Mickey Shuler is certainly the #1 choice.  A top tier Tight End in the league for more than 5 years.  Dave Casper robbed him of more than a few all pro selections.  Jerome Barkum would be my second choice,  another potential perennial all pro,  who was robbed of his career by concussions and Ken O'Brien's propensity to hang him "out to dry" over the middle of the field.

  Richard Caster would be my #3, not far behind Barkum, but behind, nonetheless.  Pete Lammons was a pro's pro, during a time when the position was underused and undervalued, with the exception of the great John Mackey.  Dustin Keller was a very talented player, who was oft injured and soft.  Very limited, short term success.  Johnny Mitchell did have great talent, but was a maddening enigma.

I am excited  to see where Chris Herndon lands on this list in the future.  Based on talent, upside, and his rookie year production, he has the potential to be at the very top.  Let's hope so.....

FWIW, Pro Football Reference ranks the Jets TE's like this based on their "AV" (Approximate Value) metric:

  1.  Jerome Barkum (AV:  55)
  2.  Rich Caster (55)
  3.  Mickey Shuler (49)
  4.  Pete Lammons (28)
  5.  Dustin Keller (24)
  6.  Johnny Mitchell (17)
  7.  Chris Baker (13)
  8.  Anthony Becht (11)
  9.  Kyle Brady (8)
  10.  Jeff Cumberland (8)
  11.  Fred Baxter (7)

So basically they have Barkum, Caster and Shuler on the top tier, then "everyone else".  Amazingly Cumberland made the cut, lol. 

 

Overall Jets Top 25 in AV:

  1.  Don Maynard (132)
  2.  Freeman McNeil (96)
  3.  Curtis Martin (92)
  4.  Wesley Walker (91)
  5.  Ken O'Brien (84)
  6.  Nick Mangold (84)
  7.  Wayne Chrebet (68)
  8.  Emerson Boozer (65)
  9.  Richard Todd (65)
  10.  Al Toon (62)
  11.  Laveranues Coles (58)
  12.  George Sauer (57)
  13.  Barkum (55)
  14.  Caster (55)
  15.  John Riggins (52)
  16.  Bill Mathis (51)
  17.  Matt Snell (50)
  18.  Shuler (49)
  19.  Johnny Hector (46)
  20.  Jerricho Cotchery (43)
  21.  Rob Moore (40)
  22.  Keyshawn Johnson (40)
  23.  Bruce Harper (39)
  24.  Antonio Cromartie (37)
  25.  Scott Dierking (33)

1. James Dearth, 144 Games Played, 10 Career Rec. Yards, 20 career tackles, the ultimate Jets TE. 

(Yes, I know he was primarily a Long Snapper).

Serious Ranking?

1. Mickey Shuler
2. Jerome Barkum
3. Rich Caster
4. Dustin Keller
5. Johnny Mitchell
6. Pete Lammons
7. Chris Baker
8. Anthony Becht
9. Jeff Cumberland
10. Fred Baxter
11. Kyle Brady

No, Herndon doesn't belong on this career-best list yet.  Give him another good year and 600-700 rec. yards, and yes, he'd be Jets Top 10 then.

The first thought that comes to my mind when I think of Dustin Keller is Ray Lewis absolutely demolishing him over the middle on that Monday Night Football season opener against the Ravens.  One of the hardest hits I can remember seeing (though the hit Eric Smith had on Anquan Bolden - that fractured his face - was probably even harder).
