    There is no definition of bust that fits a player who in his first season as a starter puts up 57 catches for 528 yards and 5 TDs.

    That post= ludicrous.

    Re: Ed Dickson

    Here are my thoughts on what Ed Dickson is saying:

    Ed, love the confidence that you and Pitta are just as good (if not better) than Gronkowski and Hernandez. However, there is one glaring difference. Those two players don't drop passes that hit them in the hands. That's why between the two of them they have nearly 170 receptions for over 2200 yards and 24 touch downs. Aaron Hernandez alone has more yards than both Pitta and Dickson combined, 1 less TD, and 10 less receptions.


    Ed, shut it dude. Seriously. Don't even talk about anything remotely close to those types of comparisons because to date we, as fans, have seen you drop passes left and right that hit you in the hands when you're wide open. Focus on your own skills man.

    This needs to go into the dumb post of the year pile for 2012.


    Ed Dickson was a 3rd round pick. Generally speaking, those can't really be busts.

    What the hell is Ed smoking if he thinks he is as good as Gronk. And why is he on Radio, can't WNSt find anyone better to inteview.

    Yes, Dickson drops too many passes. However, the real glaring difference is that New England targets their TEs more than anyone else in the league. That's why they have more yards/receptions.

    Targets:

    124 Gronkowski
    113 Hernandez
    89 Dickson
    56 Pitta

    For those that are math-impaired, that's New England 237, Baltimore 145 - a difference of 92 targets, which is only 12 fewer times than the Ravens have thrown the ball to their offensive spark, Ray Rice (104).

    Of course those guys are going to have more receptions and yards than the Ravens' TEs. Gronkowski has more receptions (90) than Dickson has had opportunities. I'm not saying Dickson is as good as Gronkowski because he isn't close, but the receptions/yards stats alone really don't tell the story. New England's offense runs through the TEs and slot receiver. Three players - Welker (172), Gronkowski (124) and Hernandez (113) all have been targeted over 100 more times (409 to 304) than the Ravens' top three targets, Anquan Boldin (105), Ray Rice (104), and Torrey Smith (95).

    I would put our biggest, strongest, quickest linebacker on Gronkowski at the line of scrimmage - and beat him up all day - holding him on blocks and bumping him every inch of those first five yards ALL DAY LONG. And when that linebacker got tired I would go to the next man up. Gronkowski would have a permanent Ravens shadow if I was calling the defensive plays. He would soon understand what it means to play the Ravens. Letting him run free through a zone is a disaster in the making.

    I'm certainly not arguing that. The Patriots absolutely utilize their TE's a hell of a lot more than the Ravens do.

    Still though, to say that you're better than a guy with over 1300 yards and 17 TD's is not only cocky, it's stupid and unnecessary. Until Dickson knocks it off with the drops, he shouldn't be talking about anyone. Period.

    Re: Ed Dickson

    LOL @ THIS! LOL! Dickson is the worst starting player on our offense, drops half the passes that are thrown to him, yet he's better than Gronkowski who just rewrote the record books for TEs? What a joke.

    Dickson can think what he wants, but I know that every single Ravens fan in existence would trade Dickson for Gronkowski or Hernandez without even having to think about it. Shut your f*cking mouth with that crap and go bust your ass to become a better player because right now you aren't s**t.

    This is the problem with twitter/tweets. Here is the transcript:

    Radio Guy: How familiar are you with Gronkowski and Hernandez up in New England?

    Ed Dickson: Very familiar. Those guys came out the same year as myself and Dennis Pitta and we kind of got a little rivalry going.

    Radio Guy: TE Tandem vs. TE Tandem . . .

    Ed Dickson: Yeah, they throw the ball almost fifty times a game. We respect those guys and think they are very talented. We think we’re better, but they are very talented and it's going to be a battle.


    The entire interview was full of joking around. The emphasis on Dickson's part was the "they are very talented", and the "we think we're better" was obviously said in jest in the context of the radio guy and Dickson going back and forth. He never said, as the tweet says, that he was better than Gronkowski or Hernandez. He never said "I" at all. He always referred to the entire team or group of TEs throughout the interview.

    Dickson came across really personable and even said that he needs to make that catch (after the radio host ribbed him for dropping the one against the Texans). He also gave tons of props and importance of the veteran leadership on the Ravens and how much difference it makes. He wasn't cocky at all.

    I really think you people should listen to the interview first man..

    It really didn't sound anything close to being that bad. Honestly i didn't even hear half the "quotes".......... Just an awful Job of Twitter transcripts being spined to make things look bad, and get a story, and get us to click on their website.

    It really wasn't that bad, i urge people to listen to it first.

    Lmao he didn't tweet that, it was an interview he did with WNST.. WNST tweeted that. Its called a "twitter transcript" Which IMO is one of the worst things to happen to journalism. They pick like 10 words and tweet it, as a quote, you cant ever get the full context in 1 tweet. Dickson never tweeted anything.
