    He needs to put on about 10lbs of muscle as well.

    NE with Gunner active 8-0.

    NE without Gunner active 2-2.

    Points per game have also dropped precipitously. And there hasn't been a defensive score in a month either!

    Damn you Bob Kraft! How could you?!

    I think our man Cordarrelle was #1 in Kickoff returns with an avg of 29.46 yards
    #2 avg was 25.59

    He's probably gone from Chicago this off season ... they save over 5 million in cap space if he is released prior to 6/1 ... Bring him back? or hope Gunner bulks up a bit, and skips the injury bug that has basically wiped out the last two rookie draft classes?

    I would say we're missing Gronk, Amendola, AB, Gordon, Blount, Develin - in no particular order.... well maybe put Gronk first....

    That's nice, but Gunner (and Cordarrelle) is missed this year and can contribute next year.

    When Gunner was returning punts we were 6th in the league by DVOA, but we've since declined to 11th. Last year we were 17th in punt return DVOA.

    Well it's gotta be somebody other than Sanu. You would think James White has the skillset to be a good return man, but I don't think I've ever seen him back there.

    Harry was supposed to have decent punt return skill, but it seems they are more concerned with having Harry figure out how to play wide receiver.

    Gunner was manifestly a good punt returner (6th in the league by multiple measures). He has a 4.5s measured 40, same as Edelman, and while he doesn't have Edelman's lateral agility he' s not bad, and demonstrated good acceleration and an ability to make sharp full speed changes of direction. He started with Winovich as one of the wedge breakers on kickoffs because of his ability to cut through traffic at full speed. He's a promising football athlete.

    I have no real idea why so many here like to dump on our rookies before they really get a chance, maybe because guys like Gunner and Stidham were no one's binkies, or maybe because so many are in love with the foolish narrative that Belichick sucks as a GM and are looking for any apparently safe opportunity to sh*t on him.
