    Silver lining

    Having the Gronk out is not good.  That said, there maybe a silver lining here:

     

    1. Saves wear and tear on Gronk, and let's him fully heal his body.

    2. Keeps our dominant offensive weapon  ready to go for the playoffs

    3. Let's other offensive weapons step up; hello Brandon loyd

    4. Demonstrates to the younger players it's about the full team, not one player. In the accelerated 24x7 media frenzy which glorifies individual players, this is a great way for the offensive unit to find there true identity

    5. Players stepping up like #11 (didn't hurt that he had a few weeks of rest and looked like he was shot out of a cannon)

    In the end a great learning moment for the younger players and it's all about the team, and not just one player

    They'll do fine.  Seems it is only the fans who panic.  Plug another player in and win another game.  Yawn!!!

    In the short term it will help him get healthy and allow some of the other guys to get some work in. We need a healthy Gronk for the playoffs, the guy is a beast.

    #4 is just too silly for words

    But you NEVER come here and condescend to us benighted Patriots fans, and you certainly would never offer any smart remark or troll in any way.

    Yeah man...  And having this short week means guys with fresh legs can step in right now when it's  needed.  We saw when Hernandez was out there too soon he was a liability.  Bring in the hungry guys that are 100% ready to go.  Can only help the team in the long run to develop these players.  I keep thinking the secret weapon this week is Edelman and maybe salas...

    Agree on all counts. Said something similar on Monday.  If Hernandez wasn't due back, I'd feel differently.   Edelman is barely used, too.  This offense is an embarassment of riches. Get Bolden back after this game, and that's one more guy to implement into the offense again.

    [/QUOTE]

    I was thinking the same thing about Revis.  It's good that he tore his ACL because he'll be all rested up for next year and Cromartie is playing as good as any corner in the NFL.

    I agree. When you are a Jets fan you always want to be thinking about next year....

    it never fails  (rolls eyes)

    roll eyes? well, you can say what you want about the secondary but the offense is the best in the NFL. And it is clearly not about one receiver or TE or RB though it requires a QB like TB to be that good. So losing Gronk hurts (you should know because you would not have won the last SB if Mankins or Gronk were healthy) but I expect this O to continue to produce yards, first downs and points at a rate that either NY team has trouble matching.

    Getting Vereen out there on routes might also result in some key plays.

    yes but Revis nor Cromartie will be fresh for the playoffs because the next time the Jets sniff the playoffs both will be collecting Social Security, some kid who is not even born yet will be the Jets QB, Tom Brady will be getting re-elected as Governor in California, and you PhatRex will be featured on the Maury Jr.  show titled "severly overweight depressed football fans who have not left their house in 20 years!"

    A little too close to the truth to be funny for PhatRex, but the rest of us enjoyed it.

    Re: Silver lining

    I was never onboard with this silver lining theory. Pats need to secure home field and a first round bye. They also need to have all their players available and ready. Has a healthy Gronk and Hernandez been on the field together yet?
