I never said Beverly was not the primary blocking TE nor that he was not part of Gibbs' plan in Atlanta. He clearly was. What I asserted was it was an aberration by the standard of blocking TEs he used. The dude only caught 1 pass and that was for his token final play. Gibbs was also in unique circumstances - the left handed Michael Vick was the QB and racked up 2628 yards rushing.
Anyway, we fundamentally disagree on your characterization of Dreessen as primarily a blocking TE. But anyway, this has been beaten to death.
