I didn't say he was as good, I said injuries have killed his career.
Tamme in 2010 when Clark got hurt had 67 catches for 630 yards. Dreessen in 2010 when Daniels missed time had 36 catches for 520 yards. They aren't probowl players but Gates hasn't had a great healthy year since 2009. When he was on the field in 2010 he was great, but he missed 6 games. In 2011 he was above average not great.
People need to stop acting like Gates is the same guy, the guy has trouble running because of his feet. If he would have came back last year and been dominant the injury issues wouldn't be a problem, but like I said he was not the same guy.
