Shockey Overrated States ESPN’s Joyner

ESPN’s K.C. Joyner has out his list of overrated players, and at the top of the tight ends is Giants TE Jeremy Shockey. Here is the rundown on Shockey.

Jeremy Shockey, TE, N.Y. Giants
— There is a reason for all the talk about whether Kevin Boss is the real long-term solution at tight end for the Giants. Shockey’s 6.8 YPA this past season was mediocre, and that doesn’t tell the whole story. Take away his 12-catch, 129-yard game against Dallas in Week 10, and Shockey averaged 3.5 receptions and 38 yards in every other game in which he played.

    I disagree on your comments about Jeremy Shockey. Shockeys roles has changed based on the decision of the offensive coordinator and the head coaches. Thanks to them and the agressive pass rushes from other teams he has been forced to stay home on blocking assignments. When Kevin Boss gives you 2-3 catches a game maby a TD or a big 3rd down cath it’s ok. However when Shockey does this based on his natural ability to open up the field, it;s considered a bad game. If you’ve got beef with Shockey’s performance take it up with the coaches not him!
