A few thoughts after watching the Patriots warm up before Super Bowl XLVI:
1. You couldn’t tell Rob Gronkowski was injured. It was tough to tell, but they had him performing some reasonably intense blocking drills that they likely would have just skipped if he was really in trouble.
2. Chad Ochocinco was involved quite a bit in warmups, as pointed out by Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe.
5. Giants defensive tackle Justin Tuck had a long, impassioned speech to fire up his defense before the teams headed back to the locker room.
