https://www.si.com/nfl/dolphins/new...lace-among-all-time-miami-dolphins-tight-ends Putting Mike Gesicki's 2019 season into perspective is pretty simple: It was among the best ever for a Miami Dolphins tight end, and arguably THE best for a player at this same stage of his career. In his second NFL season, Gesicki finished with 51 catches for 570 yards and five touchdowns, numbers that would put him in the top 10 list for all-time seasons for a Miami tight end for receptions (8th) and touchdown catches (tied for 6th). The receiving yards rank 12th in Dolphins history among tight ends for a single season. But for a Dolphins tight end in his first or second year, Gesicki set new highs for receptions and touchdowns, and his 570 yards would be third behind only the 598 for Randy McMichael in his second season in 2003 and the 575 for Ferrell Edmunds in his rookie year in 1988. Based on his emergence late last season, which saw him score five touchdowns in the final six games, Gesicki is an emerging talent at tight end, though he's not overly concerned about how he's being viewed. "The outside perception, that’s something that I kind of try to ignore just because the opinions and the perceptions of everybody outside of our locker room, our building, it doesn’t really mean a ton," Gesicki said. "I could go out there and have a good game and everybody’s happy and then the next week not produce as much and people that had the same opinion about me the week before, had kind of changed. So it’s not something that I really pay a ton of attention to. "I do appreciate those that do believe in me and do give me that trust and support me and our team and our organization, because those are people that I appreciate, but for the most part, I’m just kind of taking this thing day-by-day, focus right now on myself because that’s kind of the situation that we’re in, to get better and improve and make sure that I’m ready and compete whenever training camp rolls around. I am excited for this upcoming season and we’ll just continue to work and get back there whenever we can.” ****************************************************** This post isn't mean to start a debate on whether you like Gesicki or not. It is more of me giving some props and a shout out to one of our players. But, with that said, I mean, how could you not like him? I mean...wtf? For so many years, I have wanted a receiver on this team who is tall, strong and athletic and is a "go up and get it", etc, type of receiver. Now, with Gesicki, Parker(if he can keep his skirt off) and Preston Wlliiams, if he continues to emerge as he was doing before the injury, we could have three!! I just love how this staff used Gesicki last season. I've been saying for so long, since he was drafted, how he should be used and viewed. It really shows you just how much of a "scam" was Adam Gase. Last season was exactly how it should have been done. We also know that it can take TEs time to produce. I always said that I don't give an excrement of how he is viewed based on a traditional TE role, just go out an be a play maker, help us win games and that's just what he did. I mean, there were plays where he would actually go up high and reach over and in front of the defender to catch the ball. For so long, that's what I've wanted to see. Fitzy knew how to use these receivers. With them being able to go up and get it, it allowed Fitzy to have the confidence to throw it up there to the right spot and these guys would most likely go up and come down with the ball. So, they made Fitzy last season just as much as Fitzy made them. ...and as for Gesicki...well...if for nothing else, he did catch the winning TD pass that beat the Patsies and greatly hurt their post season hopes last year, forced an off season where King Brady gets traded and help start the possible fall of a dynasty. A division rival, no less. Wooo!! Rejoice, mofo'ers!
