    Sad, but agree with most of the folks here that say think long term and the 2nd half of the season. This is where we need all guys to be firing on all cylinders. 

    On trading Gronk....no way. We are talking about one of the best te's to play. And, he's only 25. if he gets himself right he can still have a long career And help the Pats for many more years.

    We need good games from Ridley, Bolden and Blount.

    Just another week of praying, between every offensive snap, that the rooks/o-line/McD don't get Brady IR'ed for the year.

    the bigger game is next week vs. Cin.

     



    I agree, but what if he pulls this crap next week?  I knew Amendola wasn't going to be ready, but if it was the postseason, Amendola would be playing. Would Gronk?

     

    It has to be psychological. I also don't like how he seems to be listening to Drew Rosenhaus after Gronk just got a huge, early contract.  

    It shouldn't take this long to get him back into game action.  15-20 plays and limited to no blocking would have been fine tomorrow night.  8 more days is somehow going to be the extra 8 days he needs???

    Worry about your boy Disabled Again. You are such a fool. Gronk is the least of our problems. The boy wonder Disable is the biG issue. Psychological???? Ignorant.

    Volin really stuck his neck out on this one; he was the only reporter I know of saying these two would play and the Globe and boston.com went with that as headlines. Now on the heels of reports they didn't even make the trip, he tweets his sources say "things changed over night." I think he needs better sources.

    I'd like to see the D finally make a stand against a big time offense.  That would be a statement.  Three games against pop gun Os don't tell us much. 

    Here is a chance to show that a FIVE year wait for a Top 3rd defense has arrived.

    Like many threads on this board, it's quite an interesting read.  I've thought (and posted) all along that I only want Gronk and Amendola to play when they're actually ready to play.  OK, neither is ready so they're not playing.  I'm fine with it.

    I do think, like others, that this will be a pretty fair test of the D.  They've played well to this point but Buf, NYJ and TB aren't exactly monuments to the high powered O.  We'll see.

    We'll also see if AD and TK are making the progress that most of us had hoped for. 

    In the final analysis this is but 1 of 16 reg season games and it's an NFC opponent in their house. Unless I'm mistaken a good many on this board had this down as a loss anyway.  I was one of them. 

    Oh, and thanks for the laugh, Babe.  Trade Gronk - that really made me chuckle.  Good one.

    Upon closer examination, perhaps trading Gronk NOW isn't such a laughable option, as you contend. It all comes down to probabilities and what the PATS could get in return for Gronk. I agree with Babe that trading Gronk for draft choices is not a promising option, given BB's suspect draft history. However, if the PATS could get a proven difference maker on the D-line or in the secondary, the trade would make sense at this point. If the chanes are Gronk continues to miss key playoff games and significant stretches of the regular season, why wouldn't you make the trade ? A significant factor right now is that Gronk's trade value is still relatively high. However, if he has another injury riddled season next year, his value will drop markedly. Another factor to consider is that Brady can make Sudfeld and the rookies look good at season's end, as he has done with numerous sub-par receivers, throughout his brilliant career. As long as the PATS have TB, the offense will not be the primary concern. It's the D that is the annual concern.

    I'm confused. Why does it seem the general concensus is that the player made the decision not to play. The staff does that.

    I think trading Gronk is an interesting idea, but every team in the world knows that Gronk is hurt and not playing, so Gronk's trade value will be highly discounted.  If I were a GM, I'd be very suspicious if the Pats were trying to shop a young TE who has HOF potential.  Wouldn't that signal that the Pats had lost faith in his ability to stay healthy?

    Had to dig deep to find this thread. Didn't want to start a new thread.

    Amendola is on the active roster today.
