One thing to remember, in Gibbs system the TE is a blocker first. Gibbs won three Super Bowls with mostly blocking TE's, except for one - Clint Didier. And Didier was a pretty good blocker, besides being a great receiver.

I see Rasby the starter at TE and (either) Sellers or B. Johnson the starter at H-back. I don't see Chamberlain or Royal being good enough blockers to be ever start. They could be used in obvious pass plays/situations.

I think Gibbs is smart enough to adapt his system to produce maximum effect in today's NFL. Winslow can block and we know what kind of receiver he is. He would create real match-up problems for defenses. People like to compare him to Shockey ... I think a better comparison is Tony Gonzalez, who is much more dominant. Just because Gibbs did something a certain way 15 years ago doesn't mean he can't adapt if he thinks a player is special. Winslow is special. So is Sean Taylor. I'll be happy with either.

Adding Taylor to our defense would greatly improve it. Adding Winslow to our offense would make it unstoppable. Taylor is the better player but think about how many defenses Shockey has messed with. I dont see how a team could handle covering Portis, Winslow, Coles and Gardner. Everyplay would have a missmatch that we have a great chance of winning.

The bigger need is on defense, but the opportunity to have an unmatchable offense is interesting.
