    Re: Is Gronk the best TE in the NFL?

    Gronk is a TRUE TE and a TURE TE blocks. So take away the H back, big wide out types like Hernandez (who is exceptional at his position) and Clark. Gonzalez was never a blocker like Gronk. Neither is Witten.

    Gronk is prototypical. Blocking may be less sexy than a handful more catches over the season or another couple of touchdown catches but his blocking is huge. It opens big holes for running backs. It is often a big part of a successful third down run or running touchdown. And his play as a receiver is exeptional. And he holds on to the ball. And he doesnt go down easy.

    I would not trade him for any TE in the league. ANd Hernandez is a perfect complement. ANd I suspect Gronk makes Hernandez more aware of the need to make good blocks himself.

     Not quite yet but as long as he stays healthy and gets a few more seasons under his belt he will be.

    Re: Is Gronk the best TE in the NFL?

    He might be the best pure TE out there right now, with Gonzalez and Gates still being in the discussion. And Hernandez is in the conversation for the new age H back type TE, at least talent wise. Once he can get his fumblitis and drops under control, he's got the talent to be the best along with Finley. Maybe he should get with Adrian Peterson for some lessons.

    But as good as they are individually...I don't know if I've EVER seen a TE tandem like this...let alone one right now. Especially with the fact that they do have those different styles and compliment each other rather than steal each others snaps. These guys really are what make this offense go, almost as much as Brady.

    You just nailed it. Gronk provides the blocking and receiving to his game. Gronk leads in TDs right now but it behind in yardage.

    Jimmy Graham is having a great year because he is Bress' #1 target, andd that's about it-he's not known for his blocking game.

    I think Gronk certainly has the tools to be the best in time, but is not there just yet...if he stays healthy, I think he will. I'd love to see this guy stay healthy, but he looks a tad bit stiff (to be expected for a guy that big) and he just seems to take a lot of awkward looking hits. To his credit he's stayed reasonably healthy thus far and his love for the game seems evident; it helps that he's got one of the best all time throwing him the ball too.
