Should the twitter line read #GETHYPED or #LETSSEE. I am never worried about the Pats in themselves. They always have a chance at a ring, but Gronk may be able to be the guy to push them past the All-Star Peyton’s. They Broncos stacked their defense, obviously knowing Peyton can not win using only offense (did you know the year he won the Super Bowl the Colts defense had the most turnovers). Pretty sure Elway noticed that because Ware and Talib are beasts themselves, not to mention their other acquisitions. Gronk is good enough to beat them, just not sure if he can be that healthy.
The problem is he has only two full healthy seasons. Those seasons he also had less depending on him, which might be what should be done if the Pats want to keep him for years more at a healthy rate. He has only played a little over a season in the last two and was knowingly hurt during he Super Bowl. I fear that he cannot last a nineteewn game season, even though he is young. Which, is the only leangth the Pats are looking to do. But when he is healthy, Gronk can’t be stopped.
In his healthy year he averaged numbers that piss off all defenses. He not only averaged close to 85 yards a game, but a first down and a half. Whena a guy averages fifteen yards a pass it wears out the defense and wins the game. According to Gronk and teammates things are looking up and this could be another fifteen ygc season.
Shelise Young asked Gronk a few questions and he seems confident. Gronk said, “It feels like I got it taken away and now I got it back,” and, “…I’m going to keep smashin and dashin, everything I do…” The good, and bad thing, about Gronk tearing his ACL compared to a foremarm tendon is that the Pats don’t rely on him to be quick.
Gronk needs to have good ball handling skills and be big and block. This man is much more than another Jimmy Grahm. He may have less leaping ability, but he can block like no other tight end in the league. Mankins from the Pats says, “He’s a very good blocker, especially for his position.” So, in order for him to catch balls, he does not have to be open (which is the case of many Brady’s receiver).
In the words of the genius Belechick, “The health of the team is the most important thing..” Well said coach, well said. #LETSSSEE
