    Could Nate Jackson be the most overhyped player among a fanbase in the history of the NFL?

    The dude has a grand total of 16 catches in 6 seasons.

    Not bad for a WR converted receiving TE who pretty much has a job with the same team in the NFL until he retires.

    I think people rate scheff a little higher around here than what he should realistically warrant. You see flashes of his talent in between injuries. So right now I would say Nate (even though I have thought he deserved to get cut and never was the last few years). But Nate is the preseason Tony. Lots of talent with a history of injuries. So I assume he will get hurt this week before the oakland game. Then it will be Tony again

    Just to change the mood a bit I thought I'd see your opinions on who should be starting behind Daniel Graham.

    There are a lot of mixed feelings on the topic and I have yet to see a poll started to see where the loyalty lies.

    IMO, Nate Jackson has been playing very well but Scheffler is the better athlete. The coaches have to know there is a strong Cutler/Tony chemistry, and that the two make game-changing plays. His foot is healed so what caused his demotion on the depth chart?
    Well, Tony is the better pass target, but Nate blocks better.

    Given that the first job of the TE is to block, my guess is that when Tony blocks well enough to beat out Nate he will take the number 2 position.

    No loyalty required.

    Sharpe was an outstanding receiver but he had to learn to block better to get the playing time. He was still never an outstanding blocker, like Graham, but he could manage the blocks enough on non-passing plays that it was worth it to keep him in full time and do double duty.

    When Tony gets there, he will be like Sharpe, IMO.

    Jay and Tony have man crushes on one another....

    So for that reason....

    I say Sheff.

    Both Nate and Tony are great TEs, but i think Cutler and Tony have more of a connection on the field. So i think Tony should be #2 TE.

    both are equal as far as I see it, but Nate can throw a block as well. This gives us more flex as a offense and forces dfenses to stay on their toes.

    Exactly. Scheffler playing a whole season healthy and a healthy Cutler make for one dangerous combo

    At least it's good to know, that we have some quality pass catchers at the TE position...

    I'm very pleased with Nate Jackson after this preseason, and am hoping that he can stay healthy all year and contribute.

    Nate Jackson hasn't proven jack. He's never been a contributer in the regular season. Scheffler has, so Tony better get more reps.

    I voted Tony, but got to admit Nate is pretty tempting. Tony I consider more proven due to yardage produced the last 2 seasons. But with Nate's awesome blocking skills and his recieving game picking up, wouldn't be surprised if ol' Nate stays our #2 for the year.

    Both are injury prones..... but scheff has proved more in the offense during the regular season, and has had some sync with Cutler.

    Until jackson proves something, I have to go with Scheff
