    Gronk Undergoes Successful Surgery

    First step on the road back went smoothly according to Dr. Andrews via Reiss.  I know it's a bit off topic during the playoffs and Gronk has a long way to go, but I think it's good news nonetheless.

    Not off topic at all. Lets hope they don't repeat the mistake they made when he broke his arm and try to bring him back too soon.

    Hopefully someday he will be there when we need him.

    Geeezzzz....has it ever. One silver lining (if that's possible) is that he's got time to recover. I would think this helps his back as well.

    IMHO he was never quite right last year.  Maybe it was conditioning, but he was a tad slow.  Guys caught him from behind.  He continued to be a tad reckless too.  He is my 2nd favorite Patriot so I pray for a full recovery.  Hope they find a new TE that can share the load too.

    I disagree.   He was a bit rusty initially, but from Pitt on he was a monster.

    Absolutely on point and not at all off-topic.  Good news from the start is always welcome.

    Most of the time these surgeries are fine and never have issues, but still good to hear this.

     the big thing now is REHAB. how well he will progress month to month is huge on how fast he'll be back (please no rush) and how strong the ligament is when he does return

    hopefully his rehab goes according to plan

    Would love too see the Pats trade Gronk for some draft picks.  Too much of a cap hit and anyone that thinks Gronk won't be injured again is fooling themselves.

    The Patriots would eat dead money if they traded Gronk.  There is a reason high paid players don't get traded early in their contracts.  It isn't financially viable for a team to eat all the cap hit from the signing bonus that hasn't been counted against the cap yet.

    Re: Gronk Undergoes Successful Surgery

    At this point Gronk has to be in a position where he wants to prove to everyone and himself he is still the best TE in the game. After this latest injury he is no longer in that discussion, regardless of the stupid numbers he put up while healthy. Its square one from here on out until he proves he can come off this injury like he never missed a beat. Gronk is a gamer and he always looks like he wants to go out to play everyday, dominate and have fun while doing it. He knows his best bet for another big time contract is to get as healthy as possible and keep catching balls from a future HoFer.

    Trade would be a dumb idea as his value is as low as it has ever been. He has earned the chance to show he can come back and still be dominant. AP did it, Welker did it, I am sure Gronk can do it. If he needs to take it slow weeks 1-3 next season, fine, but I doubt he starts next year on IR.

    Re: Gronk Undergoes Successful Surgery

    I thought after his third game back..'now bench him until the playoffs'.

     

    Next year timing might be such that he starts late..comes back slow and is just peaking at end of year....

    Hopefully the Patriots make the playoffs next year!

    No doubt about it.  He was just hitting his stride when that injury occurred (no pun intended).  I don't doubt he would have been a monster in these playoffs, if it hadn't happened.  Oh well.  Can't waste our time pondering what might have been.  It is good to know that the surgery went well.  I suspect we will see the Patriots take the same approach with him as they did this season.  I bet he is on the roster, at the start of the season, to allow him to practice with the team and then will be brought in when he is both physically and emotionally ready to go.  That approach actually worked out very well this year.

    Yep. Good news. Gronk, Mayo, Vince, Kelly and Spikes should all rehab together in Foxborough.  

    Look at all those names on that list. My god is that of talent that isn't here, that will hopefully be here next year.

    Thanks go to belichick for acquiring that talent

    at this point --who cares-- plan without  him, if he can get on the field and PLAY  great, it's a bonus. But  it won't last long he'll just get hurt again. Patriots need to move ahead without him in the game plan.
