2. Gronk Does Gronk Things
So Rob Gronkowski definitely slowed down towards the end of the season. He wasn't as explosive in the Super Bowl, or really for most of the playoffs. I think his knee was wearing down and he needed a break. He should be even better next year and that has to be a truly scary prospect for opponents.
Apex Gronkowski couldn't be stopped from the Broncos game through the Packers game. He made stupid catches every single game. Imagine that over a whole season. It's entirely possible.
3. Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel
If this is one of the lasting memories of Papa Vince Wilfork, then it's absolutely a great one. Wilfork might not have the open field return skills of Dan Connolly, or the hands of Dan Connolly, or the electrifying moves of Dan Connolly, but he certainly has more interceptions than Dan Connolly.
Thanks for everything you've done, Vince. Hopefully there's still more to come in New England.
