This Team just cannot seem to catch a injury break I tell ya.
Just yesterday sources said he was fine. I don't really know what to make of it. Maybe BB doesn't like Reid screwing with the Maclin situation. Gronk is Gronk and doubt he needs any practice. Practices Monday, doesn't Tuesday, practices Wednesday then not Thursday.
I agree with that. I would not have played them at all. I've always said that health was more important than HFA.
I guess we'll see on Saturday how serious Gronk's situation is. Hopefully it won't affect him much.
Still tho, not ideal at all. I don't see how you don't practice this late in the week on a playoff week unless the injury is somewhat significant.
Just this past weekend Gronk went to FLA for some R&R. If his knee was REALLY bothering him he would have stayed behind.
I call BS.
Gronk will go for 6 catches for 120 yards and 2TDs on Saturday. Bank it.
So belichick chose health over HFA. Yet, our two most important players get injuries going into the playoffs. Plus we don't get HFA. I think its safe to say that plan backfired royally.
Sure hope you are right rw.
Ok we know lets not over state it captain obvious.
with a first year HC, maybe i'd buy that. but andy reid has been around the block too many times (and been burned too many times) to let any "reports" out of the pats camp influence how he prepares for the game.
You and me both
This is kind of a non-sequitur from the idea that he's holding him out just to screw with the Chiefs. There's a very plausible scenario where he aggravated his knee in practice yesterday to some extent, and the rest will give him a better chance at performing on Saturday than will him limping through practice.
Yep. Very possible.
oh great just what we need...our best receiver isn't 100 percent.
thanks bill for mailing it in against the dolphins. the genius outsmarted himself!!!
I'll go witht he Jeff Howe tweet above - BB is letting Gronk play by a different set of rules right now because of health concerns, and I'm okay with that.
As for Chandler, he's been hurt the last few weeks, and with the OL such a patch-up trainwreck, Williams is the better choice anyway.
So glad Gronk played in that Miami game Bill. Good job!! Rest is so overrated isn't it??
Same for Mr. Brady and his high ankle sprain.
Someone forget to tell black eyed Bill that INJURY is the only thing stopping his team.
Sadly Belichick been part of the problem. POOR job of managing his INVALUABLE injured players.
For those complaining about Gronk playing vs. Miami, where is the evidence that his injury was aggravated by playing vs. Miami?
It seems more likely that his injury was aggravated sometime last week or this week, in practice.
So... are you going to complain about him practicing?
I love Bill Belichick. I would never ever want another coach. He has earned enough good will that we could go 5-11 three straight seasons and I wouldn't want anyone else.
But man he F.UCKED UP the management for the end of this season. Whatever he was trying to do he failed miserably.
Are you finished?
everybody is human........game planning is a very complex matter......what they execute is according to how they prioritize opposing threats. if you have to make choices, then what you know about an individuals ability matters......they'll probably be prepared to adjust, but everything is about tendencies and it is better to keep your opponent in some sort of fog
