How do we select a TE for our all-time Tennessee team?

by

Should we have only one tight end on our all-time Tennessee team? With the frequency of two-TE sets, I’m thinking we might put two TEs on the team. Another reason for doing this is because some “tight ends” are more H-backs than true TEs. They really are two positions with distinct differences and we can select one of each.
There are several ways we can go with this and I’d appreciate your input. Here are several options that come to mind:

    • A. One TE only. If so, the contestants would be Frank Wycheck, Jackie Harris, Erron Kinney, Ben Troupe and Bo Scaife. Seems like no contest there, Wycheck ought to win in a landslide.
    • B. Have two TEs, with one as a traditional TE and the other as a H-back. Name Wycheck as the TE, with Troupe and Scaife as the contestants for the H-back position.
    • C. Name Wycheck as the H-back with Kinney, Harris and Troupe as the contestants for the TE spot.

If you can think of other alternatives, or modifications to the above, I welcome your suggestions.
I’m in favor of Option C, declaring Wycheck as the H-back. He was frequently used like one in his seven years in Tennessee, which included three Pro Bowl selections.
What’s your opinion? Your comments will be welcomed and appreciated.

    How about Wycheck is the one and only all-time Titans h-back/ TE… I like all the other guys on the list, but is it really even a question?
    Anywho, I pick option “A”….want to guess who I’m voting for? Keep up the great work guys….helps the offseason go by a little faster

    I would like to see Wycheck and Kinney on the team, however you need to make that work out (option C, I guess). I don’t really care what you call them, but Erron needs to be on the team if Kevin Dyson makes it as a third receiver since he had two more catches in TN than KD did (178 vs 176).

    Frank is the only one of the group that is a solid player and Kinney was pretty good.
    The others range from busts to marginal.

    option A

    The irony, of course, is that Wycheck came to TN because the coaches in Washington started using him as an H-back, and he wasn’t very good at it. He didn’t like playing that position with them either. He was happier about going to Houston because he was supposed to play more of a straight TE position.
    Still, I think to include any other TE or H-back on the team at this point is laughable, unless you’re going to look at a strictly “blocking” TE. I mean, come on, the guy is HOF-bound. One of 4 TE’s with more than 500 catches, a perfect 158.3 passer rating, and the MCM.
    I vote Option A.

    Option A….Wycheck

  7. Tom Gower Says:

    Option A would be my preference. These teams seem to end up with about 30 guys on them, and that annoys me.
    Just for the record, Wycheck has absolutely no chance of enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at least as a player. No way, no how.

  8. Seth Leonard Says:

    Ouch, Tom. Wycheck at least gets my vote

  9. Mike Says:

    Troupe? Troupe? Ben Troupe? You’re kiddin, right? Troupe?

  10. Mike Says:

    Oh, Option A and Wycheck.

  11. Dave Says:

    I am probably a little more than biased, but I think Wycheck should at least have serious consideration for the HOF.

    option A the great frank , as stated before a H.O.F.
