The Winner

Kellen Winslow, TE

You would really have to have been living under a proverbial football rock not to know that Winslow revolutionized the position of Tight End back in the 80s.  Not only because of the incredible numbers he racked up (or the 5 Pro Bowls, 3 First-Team All-Pro selections, and Hall of Fame induction), but because every good or great Tight End that plays, even to this day, is compared to Winslow (even his own son). 

 

Once there was Winslow, no longer was the Tight End a big, hulking, slow-footed glorified offensive lineman who could occasionally catch.  Winslow was a legitimate downfield threat.  In fact, despite the fact that some people might think that Winslow was just a product of a great offensive scheme, one could argue that he made the scheme a success.  The way Winslow forced defenses to account for him allowed the likes of Joiner and Chandler to get open, and Muncie and Brooks to do their thing.

 

When it was all said and done, Winslow was more than just a Hall of Fame Tight End.  He was a Charger legend, and a fixture in all of our hearts and minds.  And now he’s a Golden Jersey winner.
