    Gates named AFC Player of the Week
    September, 17, 2014
    By Eric D. Williams | ESPN.com

    SAN DIEGO – For the first time in his 12-year NFL career, San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was honored as the AFC Player of the Week.

    Gates, 34, earned the award for his impressive performance in his team’s 30-21 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Gates finished with seven receptions for 96 yards, tying a career-high for touchdowns with three.

    Gates now has 90 career touchdown catches, passing Don Maynard (88), Larry Fitzgerald (87), Andre Reed (87) to move up to No. 11 on the all-time list. Gates is second among all tight ends behind Tony Gonzalez (111).

    How has Gates never been named Player of the Week before? He's had some incredibly good games.

    Taxi Driver was too weird and All The President's Men had too much typing...and not enough Deep Throat.
    Those are both excellent films, and recommended, but Rocky was much more alive, came out of nowhere,
    and was perfect for a nation enjoying it's bicentennial.
    "Rocky Balboa" from just 8 years ago surprisingly and nicely revives the slummy feel of the original
    (which Ebert loved, btw)

    Maybe Gates was flying under the radar all this time? Or, it could just be east coast bias.

    I'm glad Gates is getting all this positive PR, the price just is going to continue to rise.

    Royal had 5 TDs in last season's first two games and we shared a similar concern. The final 14 sort of brought him "back down to Earth" and allowe him to instead be in a position to take a pay cut.

    Gates should level off by the season's end because we will hopefully give Green some time to shine...right?
