"The bow, just bowing," Gronkowski said after the win over the Buffalo Bills. "You know, just bowing and it was awesome."
From where we sit, Gronk is the biggest matchup nightmare in the NFL. He's too big for defensive backs, too fast for linebackers. He possesses the hands of a wide receiver and physicality of lineman. And he does it all with the gusto of a frat boy in a keg race.
Yes, Gronk's numbers have improved since Brady's return this season:
Without Brady: 2 games, 0.5 receptions per game, 5.5 receiving YPG, 0 TDs
With Brady: 4 games, 5.3 rec per game, 118.3 YPG, 3 TDs
Those stats also don't account for Gronk dealing with an injury to open the season.
"As far as blocking, no, I do not think he's one of the best. Bennett is probably a better blocker."
Yes, Gronk has Brady. And Jerry Rice had Joe Montana. Michael Irvin had Troy Aikman. Marvin Harrison had Peyton Manning. And so on, and so on.
