    Solder wasn't exactly blazing running his route, but he showed a great burst and good closing speed when going for the block. Wonder if he could play OLB or DE....

    Yeah. He wasn't exactly getting separation as a receiver. :)

    I can't stand watching that play. Brilliant play by Gronk, but by all rights he should have been severely injured on that play. He was lucky.

    It was a good down field block by Solder. I think he could be a solid LT with that speed. He can definitely stop the best speed rushers from getting around him with that speed and arm span. Hopefully, he has the footwork and awareness to complete that package. He did a fairly good job last year, but will need to be better this year protecting Brady's blindside.

    Indeed....as he gets up his eyes look a bit dazed after it.

    I would really like Gronk to become a bit more cautious about taking contact next year. But i guess he's gonna try to bulldoze forward no matter what.

    I cringe whenever I watch that play. He is so lucky he wasn't badly injured.

    I'm afraid if I watch it too many times, he'll finally end up injured in one of the replays. Don't tempt fate.

    :rolleyes:
