    Outside of a few decent years from Jason Brown, 2005 was no great shakes either.

    His absence is not nearly as a big deal as some folks are making it out to be.

    All you have to do is watch their game last week and I'd say they adapted well, shifting to a one back, one TE set. Vereen had his way with the Texans.

    Yes it is. In the last 5 games he played excluding Houston because he got hurt he has caught 8 tds.

    It doesn't mean that the patriots can't put up points but to say he isn't a big loss is inaccurate

    That kind of explanation holds up with soft tissue damage but not with broken bones, IMO.

    If those bones are weak and suddenly overused, for example, the explanation does hold.

    Did you see the last game? It was a diving catch. He landed on the arm. He doesn't even have a back injury right now. That could happen to any player who flies through the air trying to catch a ball out of reach

    If Gronkowski is constantly using his forearm to break his fall, due to a psychological hesitance to use his back for support, due to worry over the back issues, and the forearm is weak, for example, it could happen, and it's only a matter of time before it happens in some cases.

    Sorry for quoting myself.

    Re: Rob Gronkowski

    GoodandFast is right in that my explanation is stronger, in regards to soft tissue damage. I'm just trying to explain how it can still relate to bone injury, especially in a sport such as football.

    You are so reaching. Go back and watch the play.

    Ozzie wasn't worried about soft bones or psychological hesitance. Ozzie was worried about someone who's back could go out and cause him to miss lots of games. That hasn't happened. I would bet anything that if Ozzie could go back and draft Gronkowski he would have as would every other GM in the NFL.

    I don't know how you can say a broken forearm was caused by a bad back.

    Overcompensation is one way of saying it.
