    How about this for a Gronkowski conspiracy theory?

    This for all those people who love a good conspiracy theory.  What if BB is behind RG's delay in coming back?  What if it is all part of his plan to get this new offense up to speed as quickly as possible?  Think about it.  With no RG out there, these new receivers are having to learn at an accelerated rate.  Not only that, but TB is forced to continue to throw to them, even with all of their drops and missed routes. 

    RG not being out there may possibly be the best thing that could have happened for this offense, in terms of the big picture.  As long as they keep finding ways to win, there is no urgency to get RG out there.  Let's face it...if RG was doggging it in any kind of way, does anybody here believe that BB would just let it go on with no consequence?  Not the BB that I have come to know.  When you hear RG's responses to the media, he almost sounds like BB.  Maybe, BB is encouraging RG to say things to his doctor that cause the doctor to hold off on clearing him. 

    The other big plus is that RG has been practicing with the team for nearly two months now.  According to the announcers at Sunday's game, he is tearing it up in practice.  That's great news.  That should mean he will hit the field going full speed, when he does return.  It will be less likely that we will have to wait 2 or 3 games for him to acclimate himself.  Also, the rookies will have already had a good deal of experience playing with him on the field so there shouldn't be any confusion as they try to work him back into the game plan.

    I'm telling you, if I was a big conspiracy guy, I could really buy into this.  Honestly, though, I don't get caught up in all that kind of stuff and I think it's all just a coincidence.

    BB knew that Brady would throw that pass with 5 secs.....to stay at 5-1...thus keeping the return of Gronk from being rushed.Cool

    Re: How about this for a Gronkowski conspiracy theory?

    His mom says he's "dying to play" according to yahoo.com:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/rob-gronkowski-mother-defends-her-son-says-robbie-151949836--nfl.html

    Gronkowski’s mom is not happy.

    “All I can say is Robbie is dying to play. He wants to get out there,” she told BostonHerald.com. “He’s doing what he has to do to get back playing. He doesn’t like it. He wants to play. It really bothers him that he’s not playing.”

     

    Gronkowski is currently recovering from back and forearm injuries and has not played this season. He has endured four surgeries to repair a left forearm that he broke twice during the 2012 regular and postseason, which is the main reason why has missed every game this year.

    “The same people who criticize him for not coming back are the same people who say he came back too soon last time,” Diane Gronkowski told the BostonHerald.com. “It is what it is. Rob is the only one who can make this decision. Anybody else who has a comment to make positively or negatively aren’t Rob. They aren’t in his shoes. They didn’t go through the surgeries that he went through.

    “When they go through four arm surgeries, a back surgery, and a foot surgery in a year and a half, then they can make the comments. After the third (forearm) surgery, Robbie said, ‘I’m never doing this again.’ And weeks later, he’s back in for the fourth one. So he doesn’t want to go back where he was and start all over again. It wasn’t fun. It was so discouraging.”

    James Andrews has not cleared him to play. There is no other story here. Any kind of drama in the locker room is a bunch of made up BS by the media.

    I see the media has a bunch of people believing in all the drama theories....

    He'll play when Andrews clears him.

    Re: How about this for a Gronkowski conspiracy theory?

    I think it all has to do with his body strength. Having 5 surgeries in 8 months meant no chance for strengthening the muscles. Maybe the bone, infection and scars have healed and he can run around just fine and catch passes, does not mean his strength is back up to where it should be. He was rushed back last December (in spite of what Rusty keeps saying) to try to get ready for the playoffs. In the last regular season game, he played with his arm tucked in like a broken wing. I don't blame him for wanting to make sure everything is right before coming back.

    Nope. haha

    It's pretty easy to see what is going on here. Multiple things in play, but it is coming to a head.  Rumors are the team is considering an season ending IR and I think that is to put the onus on Gronk. First, he's becoming a distraction with his behavior and second, the team is winning without him. Hooman looked good in his role and although we need Gronk, no one is above the team.

    You can tell  BB is annoyed with Gronk. Brady, too. Every time the media asks him for an update, there is a long pause with a stare down involved and a "he practiced" or "he wasn't active" response.

    Gronk was ready Week 3 per the team, was cleared, but Gronk balked and continued to balk through last week, apparently.

    Gronk needs to get over it.

    I do think it has helped the rookies in ways that will pay off later, though, yes.

    More lies and warped speculation.

    NOTE:

    Gronk is dying to get out there.  Gronk has not been released and can't play until he is.

    I mentioned this in the other Gronk thread...no one mentioned his mom highlighting him having foot surgery...could this be playing a bigger role in clearance?

    Andrews does not work for the pats, is not a bone specialist or back specialist.  It is arrogant to get a second opinion and then not get an on site exam and reason why he can practice but cannot play.

    The rumor mill just keeps churning out news pertaining to Rob Gronkowski and his return to the field for the 2013 season. According to WEEI.com, Gronkowski was not allowed to return earlier in the season because of serious concern over Tom Gill's surgery on his forearm

    As the report states, the Patriots anticipated that Gronkowski was going to return to the lineup for the team's Week 3 game over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, he was told not to because of concern over the forearm surgery done by team doctor Tom Gill. 

    Multiple sources told WEEI that the original injury to the forearm would have healed fine without surgery. However, the surgery was thought to accelerate the timeframe in which Gronkowski would be able to return to the field. He ended up returning against Houston in the divisional round of the playoffs but re-injured his forearm in the same game.

    WEEI also reports in the article that the concern stems from the healing of the bone and the surrounding nerves around it since surgery. If the bone had healed on its own instead of with surgery, there would have been no infection and thus, no reoccurring surgeries. 

    With the information given to Gronkowski's family, they urged him to wait until it was fully healed. This then led to the team bringing in renowned orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews to clear Gronkowski for a return.

    END OF STORY  PERIOD!  Liar, do you know what a orthopedic specialist is? WOW!

    Disagree.   The OP has a point that I have made also.  INjuries have a silver lining in that the backups get in and PLAY IMPORTANT REPS.  You have made this point also in the case of woodhead being let go.  Hes gone so you have to play the other guys and youre better off. 

    CANT BELIEVE all this crap about Gronk.

    The team is bringing back an important player SLOWLY AND SURELY.  THis is smart and all the idiots questioning it should s the f up.   The guy rebroke his arm the last ttime he came back too quick for chrissssakes.   4 surgeries just make it worse.

    HEY anybody consider the possibilty that if he breaks it again it might threaten his CAREER........?  Really just relax and wake up to the obvious observation at face value.
