    I've seen McKellar, Metzellars, and Riemersma. I gotta go with Metzellars. I think McKellar was the most talented of the three, and had good production but his career was shortened due to injury. Riemersma was not bad and is better than anyone on the roster, but Metzellars perfomed well consistently and in big games so I gave him the edge. Plus he has a great name for Buffalo.

    Jay Riemersma and Pete Metzalaars

    I cant choose between them.

    Hey stoopid, you do not understand when the 'winky's are in use and what purpose they serve ... apparently not.

    I guess you also didn't pick up the part that he scored a TD while on special teams by recovering a blocked punt for a TD, and was playing as a 'tackle eligible' when scoring on JP's 1st TD pass

    'Why so serious'

    Ok stoopid, I guess you missed the part where he played TE as a rookie and had a number in the 80s.

    Definitely Dave Moore (caught a TD the last time we beat New England) or Ryan Neufeld.

    Metz used to make me laugh. He always seemed like a big slow lunker but he always found ways to get open and he had great hands.

    We used to call him Pete "The Camel" Metzalaars because of how he lumbered when he ran.

    Nah. You had no idea he played TE. It's quite obvious.

    Then when called on it, you start acting like a child.

    You didn't know. No point in arguing.

    No disrespect to WARLICK but METZELAARS by far is the best tight end that has ever played for the BILLS, especially if you look at things like longevity, stats and worth to the team. It's really not even close.

    Tell you what. If you saw Warlick play and have this opinion, fine. If not, then you have no basis for comparison. I have seen both. Warlick was as good a receiver as Metz and was a better blocker. Metz gets props because he was on the Super Bowl teams. A solid #2 on the list, but Warlick was the better all around player.

    Butch Rolle started out with a big 4 catch season in 1986, he was averaging 14 yards a catch with a longest of 20 yards but no TD's.

    So the Bills found a new role for him and history was made. From 1987 to 1991 he went on a record steak of 10 catches all for touchdowns, he was averaging less than 2 ypc. Then in a meaningless game 16 against the Lions he caught a 5 yard pass and it was not for a TD. Needless to say, it was his last season here.





    Metz was the best even though there were better athletes here at times, they just never got it all together (McKeller, Johnson, Everett and Nelson) Metz was the better player of the position. Jay was #2, Mckeller's low TD #'s and ypc take him out of consideration.

    I can't say I ever seen WARLICK play seeing that I was 3 when his career with the BILLS ended, but I can look at things such as longevity with the team ( 4 yrs. for E.W. and 10 yrs. for P.M.) and worth to the team as I posted. WARLICK played on a team that did win championships but they won them mainly because of their Defensive play, while METZELAARS was a big part of an Offensive powerhouse that went to the Super Bowl 4 years in a row. Also I think that METZELAARS 29 TD rec. far outweighs WARLICK's 4 TD rec. I wish I could of seen the early Championship teams, I might have a greater love for them, but I thing I'm being pretty realistic in saying that METZELAARS was far more valuable to his team than WARLICK was his. I do respect your opinion though, I just can't agree with it.

    Are you Dr Phil in disguise?

    He was un-drafted, played special teams, blocked punt recover for a TD, and scored another TD as a 'tackle eligible'.

    Was moved from right to left tackle.

    Can you actually name me a game that he either started at TE or came into a game as an actual TE, not as a tackle?

    or ... can you only name me a time when he was on the roster as a TE but only played special teams ....

    I never have a problem admitting I didn't know something.

    Why he's even being mentioned in this thread was a joke anyways ..

    Thanks for putting this into a better context with some stats. I saw EW play as kid and he is definitely in consideration for the best. But in the end you gotta go with the Pete. He was an integral part of the K-gun offensive juggernaut of the 90's. Who can forget watching this giant tree of a man running down field with a catch. When Reed, Lofton, and Thurman wre covered there he was keeping the D off guard.

    Well, that's why we have this board. Having watched both I would take Ernie over Pete, not that Pete was bad by any stretch. Ernie was the kind of athlete that would have excelled in any era.
