In response to dreighver's comment:
It seems that every time we get a report that he's returning, everyone is ready-to-go, excited, and thinks the guy is about to be 100%, full-go, the same Gronk.
Then, we get a report that he has yet to be medically cleared, and the guy has brittle bones, will never be the same player, and we might as well IR him.
Are there any rational people left? This is a process, and it will take Gronk time to recover. Will he play against the Saints? Who knows. Will he play this season, build strength, and begin to develop into the Gronk of old? I don't see why not.
I know we're emotional about our teams, but let's try to be levelheaded and find some middle-ground here. Too many polarizing, uninformed opinions.
The thing I find funny is the 100% tag, "don't play him until he's 100%"!!!
All summer Boston Radio was yelling at Buchholz to get back out and pitch and giving him grieve for saying he wanted to be 100%.
Now everyone want Gronk to wait until he's 100%. Guess what football players are never 100% during the season they all have nagging problems. You can't play professional contact sports and expect to be 100% from week to week. If he is OK to play; play him, if there is a serious chance of reinjuring him sit him. It's pretty simple really. Oh and starting a thread called "Why the Gronk overreaction" is an overreaction...
