Gronk is quick, powerful and has long arms , so while it's hard to imagine Gronk sticking his hand in the dirt and rushing the passer, that is exactly what he'd do if he were on the other side of the ball.

This comment is not to knock Belichick but an attempt to wake the dumbed down masses who refuse to think for themselves.
Anyone seen the articles calling Belichick a genius for seeing the future of defenses by getting defensive linemen who are lighter and faster, quicker and longer? Laughed my ass off. The article sited Jason Taylor as the type and the new way Belichick is going. Think about it. No really...think....Somebody else had, the soon to be HoFer, Jason Taylor for the last fifteen years. The article alludes that Belichick is just now figuring out that getting defensive linemen that are quick and long is the way to go. Wow he must be a genius if he could figure it out and it only took him what, nearly two decades. Perfect example of how the sports writers have been pulling the wool over your eyes for sooo looong. Belichich may be better than the other coaches but thats relative not absolute, he has to bypass the genius standard to be a genius not just beat up on his lessers.
Segue...The best games I ever saw were with the sound turned down so the announcers didn't minimize the experience with all their less than accurate manipulations. If you want accuracy trust yourself without the manipulation of the media. They might even tell you who the MVP candidates are despite the stats saying otherwise. They have their favorites and often skew things just because they can.
A buddy commented that most so called football geniuses are former players, which if you consider the facts...they probably have had multiple concussions. This should make you realize that by definition and medical experience, they are most likely far from being the geniuses the media claims them to be. Yet if you look at them in a relative vice absolute way, by comparison to the other head traumatized leaders they compete against, they may look like geniuses.
How else could a coach who finishes with a bottom three defense, three years running be called a defensive genius by the media. And how is it that his teams won SBs when other people were picking the groceries (Giants, early Pats), yet since has taken total control, no SBs. And how a coach is great, defined by winning games vice SBs, yet only while he has arguably the greatest QB of all time. Great guy maybe, hard worker definitely, but genius, not by absolute standards. And not by his body of work on draft days. But then, fans are fanatics, and fanatics are emotional, and the emotional are easily manipulated. Babies and children externalize, it's not until they come of age that they can internalize and then understand things more fully. Use the mute button and think for yourselves otherwise you remain targets of an inaccurate media (I'm being kind with the word inaccurate), But that's another story.
