The best plan I've heard regarding Rob Gronkowski has to be from our own Brendan Annely. Rest Gronk until the second half of the Miami game and get him a bunch of touchdowns to scare the shit out of the rest of the league.
Maurice Jones-Drew isn't playing, and really why would he? Is it that important the Jaguars try to finish out the season with a worse draft pick at 4-12? Remember how MJD was holding out because he wanted an extension? Yeah, he's re-thinking that now.
Why would you want to sign an extension with a team with no foreseeable future? Also, why should the Jaguars care to give MJD a big pay day? So he can help them go 5-11 again?
One funny fact about Maurice Jones-Drew and the terrible Jaguars is that MJD still leads the team in rushing (414 yards) even though he's missed every game since Week 6.
Yeah, I don't think the Patriots need Gronk for this one?
