In response to pcmIV's comment:
Brady's stats throwing to Gronk the past 2 seasons:
71.6 completion %
31-4 TD/INT ratio
Patriots rushing attack last season averaged 4.4 ypc with Gronk on the field and 3.9 with him off it.
Last season before Gronk got injured the Patriots averaged 4.1 explosive runs per game (runs of 10+ yards). They only averaged 2.1 per game after he got hurt.
Anyone that doesn't think this guy makes a huge difference for this offense is certifiably insane.
Of course they are. Anonymis is a troll. I am just shocked Wazzu has started to move over t to the troll side of the aisle lately. Not sure what's gotten into him.
How am I out of my mind and a troll for suggesting that it might take a game or 2 for Gronk to knock the rust off and for the offense to gel around him? I did say that his presence will be a huge deal for NE as the season wears on, I just don't expect him to come right out of the gate and be a huge contributer after being injured. I don't think that is an unreasonable statement. I could very well be wrong, maybe he will come out firing on all cylinders. that would be excellent! I'm just tempering my expectations a bit for his first game or two back. By the way, forgive me for being a bit negative after last week. I can't stand Denver and it p*isses me off that they are looking so good early on. Hopefully they will slow down as the season progresses, as you suggest. All good bro!
