Gronkowski active, we can all exhale now

The final call belonged to Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and he decided he wanted one of his best players back on the field.

The Patriots have officially activated tight end Rob Gronkowski today, ending weeks of speculation about his recovery after an offseason plus six weeks recovering from back and forearm surgeries.

The Patriots haven’t been able to play the kind of offense they’ve grown accustomed to without him, so it will be interesting to see how quickly he becomes a part of the game plan.

    Brady will still throw a tantrum on the sidelines.

    It will also be interesting to see how quickly the Jets try and knock his block off.

    There was never any question that Gronkowski was playing this week. Once it was confirmed he traveled with the Patriots it was a foregone conclusion that he’d be active. Patriots players that aren’t playing don’t travel with the team. Ever.

    Does that mean it’s party time after the game and another forearm injury on the dance floor?

    Two subjects I’d be perfectly happy to never hear again – Gronkowski’s playing status and Peyton Manning’s return to Indy.

    “It’s a safe guess that Gronkowski will play. But at this point, we’re told, it’s just a guess. ”

    Well, that’s one way to completely assure in one sentence that you’ll be right either way. If Gronk plays, you can point to stressing that it’s a “safe” call that he’d play. If he doesn’t, you can indicate that you minimized reliance that he’d play as “just a guess.”
