    Why couldnt Buffalo bring Gronk home ??

    Its a reasonable question, Josh Allen is incredibly gifted & Gronk might be that extra player to help put us over the top. I know nothing thats been mentioned of it but Gronk is from Buffalo, who wouldnt want to be a hometown hero if possible??

    He would make a huge impact if his heart was in it.

    He's an excellent blocker as well.

    We all know what he can do.

    Question is does he want to?
    Want me to be okay with losing? Nah.
    Want me to be okay with our level of play when its not up to the standard? Nah.
    Its easy to criticize my reaction more than the result.

    Dorsey wouldn’t know how to use him?

    No. He's molasses.

    And he should have been charged with assault for the firearm to the back of Tre's head while he was on the ground well after the whistle. That was bull****. Not a guy I want playing for my team.

    Gronk is done, hes making lot of money with endorsements and not getting hit doing it.

    What we are missing is a slot receiver. They have not replaced Beasleys production. They can double Diggs because they dont have another consistent threat.

    Gronk is retired. Even if he wasn't, I wouldn't want him.

    His body has taken enough abuse. He doesnt need money. He doesnt need Superbowls. He doesnt need fame.

    Hes not an egomaniacal dickhead like Tom

    Im also upset no Bills players took a dive at his knees right after. He deserved to be taken out for at least a few games for that cheap shot

    Gronk is the most talented TE to ever play. If he was interested, i'd be all for it.

    But if he wanted to play Football, he'd play in Tampa with Brady. it's a moot point.

    I'd probably take Kelce.

    Gronk is a punk ass.

    Wouldn’t be talking about Gronk if Knox wasn’t so disappointing in the passing game so far this year.

    As great as Kelce is, look at the per game stats and nobody comes close to Gronk. Injuries obviously held him back.

    He took a cheap shot at White one time. He wasn't a guy who generally did that sort of thing. I could care less now.

    Not worth it. Knox is starting to emerge again. That is a lot of dedication and patience with a guy to just replace him when he's starting to get back to where you need him.

    But Gronk? Really?

    If that guy really wanted to play at a high level and achieve with your team and you don't take him you are nuts.

    Gronk owned the thing with White too. Came right out and said he was totally pissed off and behaved inappropriately. We played him very physical that night and kicked his ass up and down the field every chance we got in every way possible. We got to him. Don't take that personal it was our goal and we won that little battle through persistence and hard work.

    We don't need anyone looking to collect paychecks ... but great players who want to win championships?

    Actually he is, he's just not manifesting it in the NFL still.

    I had hoped we got him for just that.

    He's lined up a few times but he's never been targeted as far as I know.

    They could have honestly tried Shakir, Cook or Hines for the hell of it against the bad defenses we've faced recently if they were firing on all cylinders, using the backs even not as a traditional slot, but lining them up elsewhere and filling the role. Needs creativity though. Alas.
