In response to joepatsfan111111's comment:
Very random thought here and it's really early to be thinking buttttt....
we all know Gronk hasnt been healthy is 3 straight playoffs.
We all saw this year he can come in and immediately takeover a game.
why not sit him out til week 12 ish. Limit him to red zone snaps til week 16. Then let him play a full week 17.
we are gonna win the division with or without him regardless.
we could still get the bye without him too
i think this is a good idea because playoffs is when we need him, so sit him out and limit him til January
I thought about this too, will not be hard to do next year as he is recovering from a major issue but might be impractical for a normal year. Maybe just not send Gronk as much on streaking routes and across the middle until week 12-13..not perfect but reduces some risk.
Could also get the leauge to stop encouraging low hits.
If they can figure out how to do this add Kelly and Vince (age) and Talib (injury prone) to the list.
'we are gonna win the division with or without him regardless.' - like to rephrase this ,
'if they cannot win the division wihtout Gronk they won't be much of a playoff contender even with him. '
don't want to take winning the division for granted every year.
