    The question with Revis is this - will he be given the same treatment by the referees as he is now? Nnamdi Asomugha's struggles in Philly due to scheme change are well documented, but to me it looks like they're calling him for contact that in Oakland would have been let go because he was a "superstar". Right now Revis plays above the law a bit, and I'd want a guarantee that he could continue to do so.

    No, not in a million years. Revis is a headcase and has proven to be a 100% selfish player. He's good yes, but he's not Gronk-good.

    He's also coming off of a major ACL tear surgery, and is due to cash in on an extremely large free agent payday at this time next season. That's IF he doesn't hold out this summer first.

    Gronk is extended through 2018, and no other player scored more TDs in the entire league prior to his injury this year over the past 2.5 seasons.

    This thread is so bad I can't bring myself to add it to the ignore list in anticipation of what's going to unfold.

    This is a classic case of the "winter boredoms", that period of time between the last game and the draft, which will undoubtedly once again show how bad the Patriots are at drafting.. ;)

    The poll results thus far restore my faith in sanity.

    I would understand a Talib versus Revis question. Or Revis versus Vereen or maybe Ridley.

    Not that I'd vote Revis on any of those. I might think hard on Vereen though I think he has a huge future with the Pats.

    But Gronk? You may as well have put Brady in the question.

    I do, however, appreciate the effort. This is a dark week in Pats Fandom. Sometimes dark brings out less than stellar results.

    I'm struggling to comprehend how stupid anyone would have to be to even think it was a plausible suggestion.

    On the brain-dead scale of 1-10, it's about a 15.

    At first I thought this was a ludicrous question. Then after a moment I thought, hmmm, the top player at one position for the top player at another. Maybe this was a question worthy of response. Then for the reasons below, is sank back into the ludicrous category, but I'd already started the post. ;)

    1. Revis' contract, Compared to Gronk's there's no comparison
    2. Revis' injury situation. Compared to Gronk's there's no comparison
    3. Position importance is the final nail in the coffin to this bad idea.

    The best TE in the league can have a bigger impact on the offense, in BOTH the passing and running games, than the best CB can have on the defense. In running and blocking the TE will be involved in far more plays than any CB can. The Pats have proven over the last 2 years that you can somewhat "marginalize" Revis by simply avoiding him. You can't avoid the impact of the Gronk.

    Yeah, let's trade an awesome team player who sometimes gets hurt for a prima donna malcontent who always gets hurt.

    Well the score is currently 34-0, so even the OP didn't vote for Revis.

    Reminds me of the old TV health warning of " This is your brain on drugs ", with the egg sizzling away in the frying pan.

    Next he'll want to trade Brady for Sanchez.

    He did meet his goal of getting some comments though.

    I've been here a long time and don't post much, but my fingers were flying fast to get on-line and vote a resounding "no" to that idea.
