The debate between Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski will be one for a while, even though I believe there is no more debate. The guy that plays for the Kansas City Chiefs is the greatest tight end of all time.
On Sunday, Travis Kelce has a chance to only further submit his legacy as the best. The Chiefs have two of the best tight ends of all time in Tony Gonzalez and Travis Kelce.
I don’t think anyone would dispute that. But, for some reason, there is this notion that Gronkowski is still the greatest tight end of all time when that simply isn’t true. First, it was Kelce vs. George Kittle, but we saw how long that lasted.
Now it’s Kelce vs. Gronkowski, for the greatest of all time slot, even though Kelce has done nearly everything better but catch touchdowns, and he isn’t far off that either.
If he does something on Sunday, something we all know he is very capable of doing, it will be just one more thing he has over Gronkowski.
Per NFL Communications, Travis Kelce has recorded six games of at least 100 receiving yards, including the last two weeks against the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks. With one more game of 100 receiving yards, which he has two weeks to do against the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders, he will be the first tight end to have seven games with 100 receiving yards.
Kelce will not only have that over Gronkowski, but he will also have it over every other tight end. Not to mention the seven-straight season with 1,000 receiving yards, which is the most by any player, tight end, or receiver. This guy is the greatest of all time, and we will only further see that this weekend, especially if he gets 100 receiving yards.
