    But if we observe him, we're altering reality.

    Thoughtful and reasonable. Probably for the best.

    This and my entire UVa men's basketball starting five is leaving for the pro's.

    Sigh.

    Well for now it looks like the consensus is settling on coming back. Surprises me a bit, really, thought “not” would win out.

    My personal choice was “pass,” but I see not many of you want to join me and have the courage of your lack of convictions.

    Anyone saying they wouldn't want 2019 level playoff healthy Gronk back for a final seven games and playoff run this coming year is nuts.

    Maybe he wouldn't be the greatest offensive non quarterback force since Jim Brown any longer, but he was a beast as a blocker and still owned the big play.

    I'd expect similar in another short run this year, if Gronk chose.

    I think he's done, but if he is coming back it'll be in a season or two a la Jason Witten. I don't think it''ll be a half season thing, Gronk wouldnt do that to his teammates.

    Doesn't he have to come back to get the Pats a new Lombardi to replace the one he dented?

    As much as I would love to see him back in a Pats uniform, I can't fault his decision.

    He is literally living the life.

    Already one of, if not the best TE's in league history, SB rings, millions in the bank, smokeshow for a girlfriend, great family and friends... and he's retired before 30 with unlimited time to do anything and everything, or nothing.

    I honestly feel like he's mentally done with the pressure and work of being an NFL player and will most definitely not be returning, and I don't blame him one bit. Everything he's been through injury wise, he shouldn't give it another thought.

    That’s kind of what I’m thinking at this point...I think he might have had the idea in his head he could come back, but as time goes by it will appeal less and less.

    Unless! Just had this thought. The TE position on the Pats is SO BAD this year that he won’t be able to bear his brothers coming up short there. That’s why Belichick has ignored the position! Genius.

    Almost makes me wish the trophy was passed from team to team each yer. Everyone from now on would have to look at it, see the dent, and be reminded of the Pats not matter how many years it has been.
