    Will "Sugar" finally step up like a man and be a force for this team??
    It is amazing to me that AH makes more money than an all-world TE like Gronk.
    'Bout time he earns it don't you think??

    He ******* stinks! If he doesn't show anything it's time we think about getting rid of him.

    Are you sure about AHern making more than Gronk?
    Aaron has been doing a fair job even as he has come back from his injury.
    Takes time for injuries to heal. Sure he can get on the field but he is still not 100%

    He doesn't: comparison. Although A-Hern does make more in a few individual seasons.

    I kinda of agree with some of this, first off I love the kid. He is a freak and brings an attitude and swagger to the offense. Some parts of his style / game put me off, he is a little too nonchalant and drops more balls than he should.

    The Pats will need him to be huge this week, time to man up.

    Have I missed the part where he's been that bad these past few games? :confused:

    Does Aaron have postseason TDs? Yes. Does Aaron have a Super Bowl TD? YES!!!

    Aaron turned 23 two months ago.

    That's an age where most college football redshirts are looking forward to the NFL draft.

    Last two postseasons for Aaron:

    4 games, 25 receptions, 273 yards, 2 TDs

    Project that over a season:

    100 receptions, 1092 yards, 8 TDs

    He is performing well as a 22-23 year old on the biggest stage, while other guys his age are still in diapers.

    Hernandez went to college early because he was from Connecticut, a state where they don't hold you back to improve your football career. He then played immediately, got 3 years under Urban Meyer, stepped onto an NFL football field at age 20. YES, age 20! That's the age in which the rest of his cohort play ball as RS freshman in college.

    Thank you, I was trying to think when Hernandez was supposed to be "bad", couldn't come up with anything worth getting worried up about.

    A few drops? I can name you every every player that has dropped balls because it'd be EVERY WR in the game.

    Keep the faith people! He has had an injury stricken season, he's had a good stretch of games and I see him performing on the big stages because he already has.

    Hernandez is the most versatile player in the Patriots offense, and if there is a legitimate criticism is that he needs to work on his blocking on the edge.

    In their very brief careers, Hernandez averages more receptions per game (4.6 rpg) than Gronkowski (4.3 rpg) and is in the top 15 tight ends with 51 ypg (Gronk averages 61 ypg).

    I am not sure how many tight ends line up as a wide-out, h-back, slot receiver and tight end - sometimes in the same series. He's the go-to guy on fade routes in the Red Zone. Hernandez is a tremendous weapon.

    His value is not only measurable in production but by what opposing defenses have to do with their personnel to account for him. That's really true for all the skill players. The offense takes what the defense is giving them. Lloyd may have a one-catch game because the defense is covering him with a safety over the top, and the next game a team ignores him and he catches 7 or 8 balls.

    It would be nice if the opening poster offered a hint about what AH ought to be doing that he is not.

    Yes, Hernandez drops passes, he's young, he can still fix it. Even if your one of the people that don't consider him a TE, he's a top 15 WR. With a full season he probably racks up 90 receptions 1100 yards and 8 TDs.

    He's a beast, stupid thread.

    You can start thread voicing your opinion but you have to have some fact to back it up. you have proven you have no facts to back it up.
