Antonio Gates thinks that the NFL Top 100 list is a joke too. We all have been saying this for a while. We knew that it was more of the same stuff this year when we saw Jacoby Jones ranking in on the list. BUT Gates thinks it is a joke because he thinks he should be ranked a lot higher on this list. Hmmm…
“Apparently they don’t watch football,” the longtime San Diego Chargers tight end said Thursday on the “Top 100″ aftershow. “I understand everybody’s opinion. Some people are stats guy, some people are into who catches the touchdowns and passes, who has 100-something catches. A lot of people are not really interested in what the game plan is about.”
“It’s funny to me because it’s a joke in a sense, it’s kind of funny.”
It surprised me that Antonio was even on the list. If he thinks that his performance last season was one of the best in the league, than he better raise that bar. He didn’t stand out from the crowd last season and the Chargers offense was terrible for a number of reasons.
