While comparing players from different eras is problematic, those 2 legends both immediately came to my mind also.

Great career, Gronk. =D>

So obviously he's going into the HoF. First ballot, right?

I still don't understand why the video needs to be released to the public. Is that a law thing. Why does that need to happen?

And another thing, a thread about the greatest Tight End and all that has been mentioned is Gronk and Gonzo. No rump jokes. No pics of girls butts. Very disappointing.


It takes a year to get the Kareem Hunt video but Bob Kraft...

I'd say I'm gonna miss him but it's certain Gronk will be around. I've missed him on the field the last couple years but he's certainly on the short list of greatest TE's.. So fun to watch when he was at his peak and safe to say he's my favorite Patriot ever.

Conor McGregor just retired from MMA.
How long until we see a McGregor vs. Gronk WWE match or see them as tag-team teammates in a big PPV?

The only reason someone may not vote for him is the short career, but he really should be first ballot without question. Of course if I was voting I'd probably hold the stage dancing against him more than the short career.

Great career. That awesome catch that he made in the Super Bowl that led to the TD is a great catch for him to end his career with.

Who was gronks Qb, again?


My suggestion is people should look at Tony’s numbers when actually had a good Qb . Check tonies numbers when he had green as his Qb.

Tony was one dimensional. He was one of the greatest ever at that dimension though. He was obviously the greatest fantasy tight end:

Yeah, blocking counts for something and Gronk was great at that too.

Idk maybe that why tony was so healthy most of his career. I’m just pointing out that Tony’s prime years were wasted, but when he had a good Qb he put up great numbers.

I think Mr McGregor is about to have a huge drop in star power. It's becoming more and more apparent how he's a terrible person.

Probably not, but if Moss worked as hard as TO did then maybe we could.
