Rob Gronkowski calls Bucs one of the best offenses he’s been on

The Patriots’ offensive units of 2007 and 2012 with Tom Brady set plenty of NFL records.

The 2007 Patriots set then-NFL records for touchdowns (75), points scored (589) and point differential (+315), and Brady set a then-NFL record with 50 passing touchdowns.

The 2012 Patriots scored 550 points and broke the NFL record for first downs (444).

Tight end Rob Gronkowski played on the 2012 team with Brady.

He ranks his current Buccaneers Offense as one of the most talented units he has played with, maybe the most talented.

“Yeah, I would say it definitely ranks up there, if it’s not No. 1,” Gronkowski said Thursday, via Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “I’ve been around a lot of great, talented players, but I would say overall — as a group, from position to position [with] how many guys we have at each position — I would say this definitely ranks up there, if it’s not No. 1 for talent-wise as a whole. Yeah, definitely.”

Brady has Gronkowski and Cameron Brate at tight end, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown at wideout and Leonard Fournette, Ronald Jones and LeSean McCoy at running back. The Bucs had 11 players catch at least 10 passes during the regular season. Four running backs had at least 100 yards from scrimmage.

The Bucs now are rolling offensively after Brady has gotten to know his playmakers. Another year in the system could mean even better results for Brady and the Bucs in 2021.

Gronkowski, 31, reiterated his intent to return to the Bucs next season.

“I don’t see why not,” Gronkowski said. “Obviously, there’s logistical things. I’m just on a one-year deal. And my main focus is obviously the season, and going to Green Bay. But if I had that question now, I don’t see why I wouldn’t be coming back for the 2021 season.”

  1. I can’t argue. Brady seems to be close to his prime, and his supporting cast is awesome.

  2. Tampa Bay is not consistent on either side of the ball, there’s no telling which version of the team will show up to play…

  3. Brady has a Lebron draw to him. It’s rare in the NFL. But a lot of these guys are there because they want to play with him.

    Sure it is because Belichick almost always does it with players other teams either didn’t want and cut or they traded them. Like Burkhead he was a 4th string RB at Cincy who almost never saw the field and now he has a few SB rings or Welker who the Dolphins didn’t quite know how to use and the Pats turned him into a top 5 receiver for 5 out of 6yrs from 2007 to 2012. Bill can take other teams not so good or washed up players and coach them up to be good enough to win not only AFC Championships but Lombardi’s too, that’s why he’s the “HAND’S DOWN” GOAT at HC!

  5. And the table is setup for the passing of the torch to Aaron Rodgers after the Bucs go down in flames this weekend (as much as it pains me to say it)…….

    And the argument is these players had Brady at QB. That’s why they turned out great. We shall see in the next few years how the Patriots turn out. Time will tell.

  7. “And the table is setup for the passing of the torch to Aaron Rodgers”

    —-

    Hate to say it, but Rodgers never had a chance at “the torch”. Brady and him are too close in age, and he’s held it by himself for 20 years. Just like Favre, Rodgers will go down as an underachiever, hardware-wise. Not talent wise. There’s no denying the talent he has. It’s just that he played in the time of Tom Brady. Kind of like Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson—they were always second fiddle to Tiger Woods. Had they played in a different era, who knows how much more they’d have won?

    When Brady finally releases his grip on the NFL, Mahomes or Allen will bear the torch. Herbert should be in there too. will be fun to watch those guys duel for the next decade.

  8. It’s funny how a few years back,Patriot fans were bragging about how Brady could make the janitor a pro bowl receiver.Then when he left they blamed Bill for not getting him any weapons
