God I hope he plays this Sunday.
He will, my son
it sux to rush him back right before the BYE week 5 but this game is a critical game and it is our chance to BEAT the Jests in our HOUSE
Play the BEAST... BB had it planned to rest until Week 4. When Aaron is activated this weekend then we will all be like and and
If he's not 100%, I hope he sits. We've got a bye coming up and it's a long season.
I'm not a doctor, but it seems there would be a risk in rushing a player back before his knee ligaments are completely healed. I'll take our chances with just Gronk for another week and look forward to AHern after the bye.
I do agree, but I want him back for this. If AH is inactive who is our WR2 since Welker will have Revis on him all day. I hope Welker's new Rockets can burn the Jets CB's. Amazing what 1 year of healing can do,

While in temple on Saturday for Yom Kippur, you might want to throw in an extra prayer for this.
If Hernandez is at 100% and plays this Sunday no way the Jets beat us. Since the Cleveland game the Pats are undefeated with a HEALTHY Hernandez he played in the playoff game but of a hip injury and didn't have many snaps.
Don't play him. We'll be fine without him. Our O doesnt concern me. The D?, yea! Don't rush him. Save him for when another TE or WR get hurt, cuz ya know it's just a matter of time. I'd like to see AH back tho! Just MHO
They don't need him to beat the jets..but i would like to see him out there
Jets can't cover TE's..did you see dixon the no name TE on Baltimore have a field day on smith? Yeah gronk is going to destroy them
I don't know man the playoff game is out of my head but I don't recall Gronk being a factor in that game.
I'd love for him to play, but want him healthy for the remainder of the season. I.m confident our D can handle it. Its gonna be a " GRONK" day in hell for da planes. ( Hope they play footloose there too as an added incentive ) :rocker: :rocker: :rocker:
if he dont this game wont be one unless someone else steps up , like a ocho or branch...
exactly, this is what i've been saying to people all along. when hernandez played against the jets last year in the 45-3 win, hernandez really opened things up in the passing game. in the playoffs we saw alge crumpler get more snaps and instead of using him as a blocker we used him as a pass catching TE which did not work very well.
Revis can cover Welker, Cromartie on Branch, which leaves Ocho, Gronk and Hernandez wide open.
If Cromartie is trying to cover Branch, then Branch will basically be left wide open too.
Hope Ocho has his biggest game on this stage.
I honestly would sit Hernandez this week despite if he tries to convince the trainer to play. I want him healthy for the 2nd half of the season.
I'm genuinely interested to see how the Jets are going to tackle Gronkowski. We all know Revis is going to Welker. The Jets cannot stop the run atm. They're going to have to stack the box or give up something in the passing game.
Once more, offensive line production is going to be the key.
I'm not a doctor, but I was delivered by one. He will play this weekend for the following 7 reasons:
1. When dealing with the MCL...............oh, what do I know. I can't even spell MCL.
I hope he plays. We'll find out soon enough.
I'll fast for two days if it means a healthy AHern.
Cromartie has played ok against the Pats in the past. Sometimes very well. I like Branches chances against him especially if the Pats can mix up it up with the run. A play call I'd like to see is a run towards his side with a RB tossing a bomb while Branch climbs the ladder. Especially if the safety bites.
Cromartie is an overpriced douch who sucks at being a CB.
Go get 'em jew
First, he won't be 100%, and with the Pats bye week, it would probably be prudent for the Pats to be careful with him this week.
That said, don't say the Jets have no chance, even as awful as the Jets looked against the Ravens, the Pats are not the Ravens on defense, and Hernandez played in the playoff game last year, that didn't help the Pats at all.
How old are you, 10?
Cromartie is a very good CB who is off to a better start his year than he was last year. The penalties against him, about 75% of them have been complete BS.
That makes up for the holding penalties and PI Revis gets away with on 95% of his plays then.
I particularly enjoyed the TV replay close-up arm bar on Torrey Smith Revis committed for no flag.
Nah, that is just Pats fan spin.
I could make the same argument about the Pats OL and their penchant for holding and the league over protecting Brady.
Revis is great because of not just his physical ability, but because of his technique, he presses and is as good a physical CB as there is in the league.
I just said IF HEALTHY and I also mentioned he was playing of his hip injury and his snaps were limited. Alge Cumpler shared the most snaps with Gronk...I just see him being the X Factor for the Pats offense and don't see how the Jets can win if he is playing at 100%. (Again IF)
The TE's are certainly the staple of their offense, and they are both good.
But Hernandez won't be 100%, even if he plays, and with him, his legs are more important because of his speed and explosion, he'll be missing that for a couple of weeks even when he does return, especially while playing with a brace on his leg.
Revis cheats on almost every play and I'm a fan of his play. The fact that a slow motion replay actually showed how he does it was vindication for those who have long held the position that he gets preferential and favorable treatment from officials.
Sorry I just disagree.
It's funny coming from a Pat fan though, who saw this kind of play, very good CB play every week when Ty Law was a Patriot. Revis, being Law's nephew has a lot of Law in him in his technique and how physical of a player he is.
The rules had to be changed because of how physical the Patriot DB's used to play.
