its the same opinion other ex patriots players. You don’t come here with expectations of having fun In practices. Some players loved Playing for BB. The details & game scenarios he prepares them for games.

Change “some” to “most”.

Your right the ones who didnt more interested in having fun. Allowed to do what they wanted in interviews & social media. Being treated differently on teams

It's hard to work out Gronk's thinking here. When he was with the Patriots by common consent, he was one of the hardest-working players in the building. He apparently hated nothing more than not being able to train. One of the first ones in and last to leave. Bill consistently said that. So clearly, he liked the work. So what exactly is he saying? Suddenly he hated working hard and just wanted fun? I don't buy it. Jules, Chung, High, D-Mac, Slater, KVN, Andrews, Mason, none of those guys said it was a miserable time.

It's the lack of gratitude that annoys me I have to say with players. Gronk was a draft no-go. No team wanted him. he was playing for Arizona, not exactly stellar and he had serious back issues. Bill looked in-depth, did his homework and took a shot. And Gronk became maybe the greatest TE in NFL history, is a sure-fire lock for Canton and was voted on the NFL100 greatest players of all time where BB was one of the judges! Gronk is nothing without Bill having chosen him and putting on the field with Tom Brady who Bill also pulled from Draft hell and gave him a shot.

He's definitely in the conversation. In the end, voters will remind themselves that losing a RB should not be that big of a deal. He did a good job though.
This. Derrick Henry is one of the best RBs in the league. He ain't Barry Sanders or Eric Dickerson. :coffee:

It's basically parroting what 12 has been putting out in the media since he started skipping passing camps. 87 ain't the brightest bulb, so if Brady told him something, it's not as if Gronkowski were going to reason through it to come to his own conclusion.

And, thanks to this, Brady has the added benefit of having Gronkowski run interference for him, so he doesn't have to get his hands dirty.

12 using someone else for his own selfish purposes. What an unmitigated prick this guy turned out to be. I'm glad he's gone and gets to do whatever he wants, because when Brady is done in Tampa, that team won't win shit for 20 years, at least, thanks to the absolute poison that's been dumped into that well.
