    NFLN just reported that Gronk was a full participant in todays session, albeit a walkthrough.

    I really think his injury is overblown and not as bad as a lot of people seem to think. I think we'll see a close to or at 100% Gronk come game day.

    If he was close to 100% he would have been practicing all week, or at least more than he did. My guess is his ankle is pretty effed up and he would have been out for a pretty good length of time had this been the regular season.

    That doesn't mean I don't think he'll be effective, but I doubt he's near 100%.

    My hunch is we're going to get an Gronk that is at about 85-90% which means he's still a big threat offensively. I feel great about this SB. Let's Go Pats!

    This is game 19 for both teams; there are very few players @ 100% this time of year. Your "guesses" about Gronks health, ability to play thru pain mean as much as the predictions of the so called anal*ists

    In other words, my guesses are as valid as they come.

    Seriously though, if he was close to 100% he'd have been practicing much more than he did. I think that's pretty obvious. They aren't holding him out as some kind of smoke screen. The dude is hurt.

    Let's hope that all is well for Gronk, but I still have my doubts about how efficient he will be.

    Here is the full list of players who are "questionable":

    I expect 100% dress and play.

    Damn, I was so happy to see anything resembling an ankle stretch that I missed the shirt! :D

    Just watching Playbook on NFLN and saw that Gronk is 85 yards from tying Dallas Clark for most yards by a tight end in one post-season. Not necessarily a lock to break it (ankle, game plan), but a possibility. Just imagine if he had Eric Alexander covering him for one whole game.

    If Gronk can't 100%, he needs to have his best blocking game of his career.

    Gronk needs to buy more time for brady by blocking, if he can't use his speed to get open.

    And what you can't tell from that picture is that Gronk is standing 20 feet behind him. ;)

    Gronk will be the key. If he can't make cuts or be effective in pass game, then Pats will need to quickly adjust and keeping him as a decoy to block maybe the best option. Of course this puts pressure on AH and WW. I expect the Giants secondary to cheat up since we really have no WR speed threat

    I heard Werder on ESPN today say Pats coaches saw Gronk run at full speed.

    WOW
