Rob Gronkowski initially broke his forearm on a block during the regular season game against the Colts. He described that break as a freak accident. During the divisional round playoff game against the Texans, he broke his forearm again in a different place on the 7th offensive snap.
“I really wasn’t that confident, obviously, going in because obviously I was using one hand, as you could see,” Gronk said in an interview on Boston sports radio WEEI’s “Mut and Merloni” program Thursday. “I was just getting used to it and getting into the flow of the game again. It was good to get the speed (of the game) down, and all that, and be prepared going into the playoffs.”
Gronk said he was ready and confident to play in the game against the Texans. Imagine how different the game against the Ravens might have been if Gronk was in? Would it be wrong to say that if he had been in, and Talib was in the whole time that the outcome could have been different? But then again, the Pats played 6 weeks without Gronk during the regular season and they did just fine.
