    In Manning's defense, he's excellent at providing the hand off to Moreno like he'll do in his one January game this season.

    It's funny cause in Madden, whenever I try to do a fantasy draft, it's impossible to get Brady because he's always taken by the 1st-3rd picks overall picks. I've tried to re-do the draft several times in hopes I would get one of the top picks to draft Brady but I was never able to. On the other hand, Manning was available several times in the late 1st round when I was on the clock.

    The patriots are going to run gronk into the the ground if his playing style doesn't change. Outside of adrain peterson i don't think there's another player that takes as much contact as gronk and Just like any runningback, those hits will begin to take it toll on him.

    I dunno, Jimmy Graham is pretty darn good. But it is clear that Gronk is integral to our offense. When he is playing well, we score lots of points. Even with that murderer gone, our offense is pretty good as long as Brady and Gronk are upright and healthy.

    Still, our young receivers need to continue to step up. And Amendola and Edelman have really taken it up another notch as well.

    Now if we could only solve Ridley's fumbling issues, we'd be set. :p

    How is Madden on the PS4? I've had the urge to get a new Madden game but often have a change of heart. Keep in mind the last Madden I played was O8 with Vince Young on the cover.

    So, the Patriots should just force him to retire then? I never understand this logic. Football players play football. Gronkowski is a high contact player. That's how he gets his yards and dominates at his position. Asking him to change his style of play for fear of injury is like asking to him to stop doing what makes him most effective. If you asked Rob himself to change his style, I guarantee that his response would be, that he will keep playing the same way he has been for the rest of his career.

    If you're strictly talking about as a pass catcher, Graham is definitely up there. Unfortunately for Graham, being a TE is about more than just how good your hands are, or how high you can jump.

    There's several areas that Graham is average-to-mediocre at, that Gronkowski is vastly to superior to him at. Namely, blocking. Based on this Madden rating system, I'd say Graham is the 70's as a blocker whilst Rob is in the high 90's in that area too. Based on a rating totality, IMO, if Gronk is 99, then Graham would be like around 90. There's a huge gap in between them as total football players.
