    Watch the Chargers and you'll see Gates split as a wide receiver in two-back, two-tight end personnel groupings. They can do that because of Gates' ability to win matchups as a receiver on the outside, whether he's up against a linebacker, a safety or even a corner. I still have visions of Gates getting Champ Bailey
    turned around on a deep out route earlier this season.

    They mention a ton of TE's...The main two are in another class...Shockey isn't there yet, Clark and Witten are good and made better by thier QB's...Gates and Gonzo on the other hand make a QB better...

    Gates and Gonzo are awesome after the catch and have a knack for the ball not very often seen.
