    Apparent;y Gronk had the stomach flu today and couldn't even participate in pregrame workouts. He wasn't a huge factor today, but he played tough none the less.

    Explains a lot. You could tell we were not ourselves out there as we probably had to make game plan games on the fly.

    Both Gronk and Hernandez gutted it out. It isn't fun trying to play on a bum knee either.

    I was about thirty yards away from the sideline and saw Gronk upchucking the entire first half between offensive drives...thought it was the heat...no wonder... I want to see a healthy Gronk and Hernandez against these Rats in the Meadowlands.,..sweeping these mutts would send Wrecks into a catatonic sugar shock from chocolate frosting overdose.

    I gave kudos to Hernandez in another thread, but he played so well considering he is far less than 100% that I will do it again. Kudos.

    Gronk still pushed Scott back about 10 yards into the endzone on one of BJGE's TD's and picked up a huge 1st down on that last drive. No mere illness can stop the Gronk!

    No Jersey Selected

    Wow can't believe Gronk played sick. Didn't see much on the passing game, but he made some wicked blocks for the running backs.

    Can't wait until the entire offense is healthy

    Gronk needs to stop eating at the Y before game day.

    Disable Jersey

    Note to Gronk, When Rex Ryan says, "Hey Gronk! Try some of this great kielbasa!" Don't.

    Had a monster game blocking. It's situations like this and this kind of response that forges champions. Gutsy.
