Strongly disagree on Witten's blocking ability

It was highly superior for a tight end and was a two way execution that changed the position pre-Gronk from the Gonzalez/Gates mold to a true two way. He was an extra tackle on run plays but could slot out wide. Not saying he necessarily was the same or better than Gronk blocking, but his blocking was exceptional on the edge.

It is also way dismissive toward his receiving on barely upper half. He did not stretch the field like Gonzalez or Graham but easily top 5 every year most of his tenure.
