And speaking of that, I was going to post on Twitter that I am lives from Make sure to follow me on SportsCastr and on Twitter.
So, you know, every time I'm sorry that I am live it really appreciate if you would do that.
So today we will be talking about the top five tight ends in the NFL right now.
In order, we will go five toe one obviously great tight ends in the NFL. I love.
I just love the tight end position.
I don't really know why, but I think I'm just kind of spoiled of an Eagles fan.
So I mean, irks, obviously a great head end and Ghadir another good one.
I just like the tight emphasis. Just reliable.
Great route runner.
Exactly What's He's one of my favorite players on team.
Um I mean, I feel like tight ends.
There just a very unique position because, like every often, obviously wide receivers and running backs are used a lot.
But tight end is kind of like on some teams.
A tight end has no more than 400 yards, but on other teams, the tight end is the leading receiver and maybe then the second leading received.
I think I honestly think, hurts and God or might have been the top two leading receivers this season.
But I got to check that Earths and got her.
Might be the top two.
It's the Eagles leading receivers leading receiver.
Let's see, there are a lot more important for some teams and the other teams.
Yeah, it Zach Ertz.
They don't help.
My cab is crazy.
Ghadir third, Sanders.
I mean, come on, let me click on this link here.
Third Sanders, then fourth.
Fifth AGL or six.
Correct Ward seven.
This is a sad list here, but urged and God are number one and two on the Eagles list.
So it's like for some teams.
The tight end barely used other teams at the top two receivers are top two receiving yards are both tight ends.
I'm sorry if this looks a little weird, like my knees of the glowing up, but I have Windows but in Sunny out.
So, yeah, that does look weird looking on the camera.
My knees are like glowing up right now, but, yeah, let's get into the list at number five.
Ravens tight end Mark Andrews.
He had a big breakout year this season.
64 receptions, 852 yard.
Getting in the ends of 10 times for Mark Andrews.
Um, that's very impressive.
There's 10 touchdowns.
Andrews really solidified himself.
It's a great tight end this season, him some decent years and years past.
But I mean this year, so much better than his other seasons.
So, yeah, he had a really good season this year.
I mean, he broke out the number one target on the Ravens.
Lamar Jackson's favorite target.
Pretty decent amount, but it's the least on this list.
64 receptions, also the least on the list, but 10 touchdowns by far the most on the list.
Um, it was really getting into the end zone a lot.
He was reliable, and Mark Andrews really had a breakout year in the season and show that he was a top five tight end in the NFL.
Lamar Jackson's favorite target.
Maybe Mark in just could have had this year, Um, in 2018.
And if Lamar Jackson would, you know, throw the ball? I mean, then he was like throwing the ball 12 13 times in games will be interesting to see if look, the way I don't know the way through the ball this year is like a regular quarterback, 2018.
He was a quarterback 12 times a game, but if he threw it like in 2018 like you through this year, I wonder, and it would have broken out in 2018.
But Mark Andrews, a great tight end, and he really showed that this season is a big threat in the red zone with 10 touchdown at number four, it is DARE and Waller, who also a big, big breakout year.
Um, pretty much coming into the season, everybody knew the top three tight ends.
I'm not gonna ***.
I'll reveal them later.
Excuse me in this video, but the four or five was kind of underside of a Darren Waller.
90 receptions, 1145 yards and three touchdowns.
I mean, that's better numbers, Honestly, the numbers.
He's probably the second best statistical tight end in the NFL, but I come that fourth.
This is first good season is a break out.
I mean, really, truly break out your I think, in 2018 eight catches or something that's a 90 becoming the top target.
11 45 yards with three touchdowns, only three touchdowns.
That's not super impressive, but you know touchdowns don't really matter them.
It's kind of like R b.
I's in baseball.
It's just like if the book is throwing you in the red zone, then you're gonna have more touchdowns.
It's, I don't know.
I don't know how to describe it, but he just didn't have too many touchdowns, at least on the list.
Second, most receptions on listen, second most yards on the list.
So I mean, he had a really, really good year.
And the way that he is not one of those, you know, reliable over the middle, catches everything kind of tight ends.
He's a much more elusive, agile, kind of quick, fast, almost like a wide receiver with just like a big, um, just wide receiver skills, really.
And wide receiver speed.
But Bill as a big, tight end, that's really the way that I could describe that Darren Waller.
He had a really good season this year, but Derek are throwing to him.
You're definitely the best receiver on the Raiders, and he was a big reason why the Raiders were kind of almost.
They were almost in a playoff position with, like 34 games left, maybe two games left.
So Derrick Pouliot break out your invention, see if he can sustain that.
And now these top three guys, they have sustained their success.
One of them has only really been two years, but I mean, number three and number one.
These guys have been dominant tight ends, um, across the NFL for years now at number 31 of my favorite players on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Why was that about you know what? Just disregarding and said anything.
Zach Ertz, 88 receptions, 916 yards and six touchdowns, the second most touchdown receptions on this list Hurts has the fourth most yards and the third right in the middle with receptions.
Hurts Wall are definitely better stats than him.
But I mean, Earth is just a better tight end, and everybody knows that he is the most reliable tight end in the league.
No doubt about that.
No doubt reliability and catching third down conversions and being a safety blanket.
Zach Ertz is the most reliable tightened in the NFL and probably one of the most reliable players in the NFL.
He got injured the last two games of the season, Dallas and New York, so I mean those games he probably would have gotten to 100 perception and, ah, 1000 yards.
Who hasn't heard those last two games? I'm actually sure he would get to 1000 yards.
You only need 12 receptions, but only 84 more yards.
He gets like 84 yards in the game.
I mean, last year in 2018 Earth's broke the record for most most receptions in a single season from a tight end.
So I mean, that's that reliability catches a lot of balls.
He does not drop much at all and I mean, he's not big with run after the catch, but, I mean, he can run any route.
He is a fantastic route runner.
He had two of those tight ends in the Giants game.
He showed up when it matters most.
Um, one with about two minutes left in the game on Thursday Night football in the Eagles Need the most and obviously the one in overtime.
I'm pretty sure I can remember every single words. Touchdown.
The two in the Giants game.
Um, just kind of challenging myself here.
Um, if their 61 of the Bears game, I don't remember every Zach Ertz touchdown trying.
Let me just go back with the eagle schedule. Week one.
He did not have one week to We did not have one week.
30 he had one against the Jets.
Um, who do we play Week three.
Didn't have one against a lions.
Didn't have one against the no.
No, he didn't have one against the Packers.
I don't think No.
Yeah, he didn't.
Um, let me think.
Had one against the Did you have? What? Against the bills.
I actually don't think he had one against the Bills.
All right, this kind of a waste of time.
But I remember most Zach Ertz touchdowns.
That's my point.
But he had a great season this year.
Now I was good to the previous year, but, I mean, he had a record breaking year the previous year.
Very hard to follow that up at number 2 40 Niners tight end George Kittle, 85 receptions, 1053 yards and five touchdowns.
Kittel Great great run after catchy strong.
He's a loose of these.
Agile is versatile.
I mean, they can use Kindle in just about any way.
Um, I'm not saying Jimmy Crop was a bad Q B or anything like that, but I wonder what he would do with the quarterback like Patrick Mahomes.
Like the way Travis Kelsey is.
I really wonder that, but, um, get a great year.
85 receptions over 1000 yards, six me five touchdowns.
I mean, Kittel, he is just He brings that energy and he's just one of the best tight ends in league sustained.
That for two years I've been coming into the season was number three on the season, with Earth's having a bit of a down year and Kittel Kimmel, actually, in a worse year they did in 2018 but he's still a great tight, and I think he moved up in the rankings to to thank you for that tip.
I really appreciate it.
Tell me George Cadle had a great season with Jimmy Garoppolo throwing to him.
He was the best pass catcher on that 40 Niners team that made it to the Super Bowl.
That a 10 point lead in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and they blew it.
But Kittel, obviously a great great player and second best tight end of the league.
No question about that in my mind and even more of a no question number one everybody sees is coming.
The best tight end in the league.
97 receptions, 1229 yards and five touchdowns.
Great great, great player.
The best tight end of lead.
There is no question about that.
He is 100% the best tight end of league.
Um, you can't debate that you cannot debate that I don't care what anybody says.
You can't debate.
You just can't Kelsey conduce Oh, it all.
You can't run deep short.
Any route he's got size got strength, Speed.
I mean, this guy is just so good.
Yet Patrick Mahomes their throat.
Oh, definitely helps.
And Kelsey, I mean, he is just a great, incredible playmakers, very versatile.
And he for real, does it all.
You can use them in so many ways.
They run like read options with Travis Kelsey.
It's why best tight ends obviously Drew Sam.
I don't even know who is Drew Sample.
Let's let's look up, Drew Sample.
I spoke his name terribly wrong for the Bangles.
Second round of the 2019 draft, Man, A second round pick, and I had nerves name once.
From what do you do? Nine games Drew sample, five receptions and 30 yards for a second round pick.
I mean, got the Bangles and terrible drive.
First round pick in 2019.
Jonah Williams, right.
And he had with what? With the 10th pick.
And he didn't even play and then second around living that all My God, dude, That's why the Bangles suck.
Uh, but Kittel at the two Little Kelsey.
I mean, that dude, just an absolute monster.
Best tight end league.
Um, he's amazing.
I'm not George kid.
Oh, my God, I cannot stop getting killing Kelsey mixed up Travis Kelsey, brother of my favorite player on the throat of the Eagles, Jason Kelsey.
Um, both are dubbed.
That's actually crazy. They're both all pros.
I mean, brothers that are all pros, that's that's just crazy.
But the Kelsey, the Kelsey family, the Kelsey Brothers, both hilarious and both very, very good at their respective positions in football.
So at number five, in the best tight ends, it's Mark Andrews at number four.
Darren Well, number three Zach Ertz.
George Hill at number one, obviously playing for the cancer. The Chiefs.
It is Travis Kelsey and guys, thank you so much for watching.
I really appreciate it.
I hope you guys all stay safe in these tough times, and I really hope sports could come back soon.
Guys, there's nothing more that I want that to commentate a Flyers game or a Phillies game right now. That would be amazing.
But, guys, thank you so much for watching.
I really appreciate it.
