He took his team to an AFC Championship as a QB.
He's never gotten another shot to be a QB in an offense tailored to his skillset.
And do you know how hard it is to be an elite TE? You don't just change and be great...you have to catch, you have to block...how do you know he can do either?
Lastly. I'm not sure you know how big Gronk is. I pretty much disagree with everything you just said.

|2 hours 35 min ago||This title.||
|2 hours 35 min ago||I'm a foodie...this is impossible.||
Best pizza: Stravaganze in Rio...it was ridiculously good. Patzeria Family & Friends in NYC is also awesome
...speaking of NYC, Best Bagel: Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Co.
Best burger: My own (Bison man, bison)
Best mexican: El Grand Rodeo in VA also went to an awesome place in FL, but I can't remember the name of it
Best Beer: Brooklyn Blast although, I love Bell's and Magic Hat #9. Sierra Nevada is a cheaper staple.
Best lobster/chowder: James Hook & Co in Boston
I can't think of my favorite Italian...I LOVE Italian. Can't think of favorite Chinese either.
The Shrimp Po Boy at Shagger Jack's in Oak Island, NC is amazing (Prime Rib Nachos at Hops Supply in Wilmington, NC are also incredible)
I could go on and on...but I'm now starving. Thanks a lot.
|2 hours 45 min ago||I don't see why he wouldn't make the roster...||
...especially when there is an incentive to go for it rather than kick XP's. He could be an asset.
I'm sorry, but I just don't think Geno Smith or Josh McCown or Matt Cassel is head and shoulders better than Tebow IN an offense tailored to Tebow.
The Eagles offense is tailored to Tebow (and the other QBs)...so it makes sense to me.
|2 hours 49 min ago||Whoa||
If you're a fan that travels to media day...and you just read THAT coming from ^^THAT GUY^^ you should reeeeeeaaaaaaaallly reevaluate your priorities. Because if WD says it's over the line - then dammit, it's over the line.
WD IS the freaking line.
And this is not me being sarcastic in the slightest. Get your shit together Media Day visitors (unless you're local and you want an autograph for your kid...I get that, and I'll speak for WD and say that he does as well).

Is a mo-ran.
Let's not even have a regular season...let's just have a double elimination playoff from day 1. 128 teams.
|20 hours 28 min ago||(No subject)||
|20 hours 35 min ago||FUCK.||
|1 day 1 hour ago||He gone.||
Whatever...there are more. Maybe we can turn Isaac Nauta into a man.
No Upshur, Nauta or Chris Clark does sting though, I don't care how we want to sugarcoat it.
And I know, Harbaugh shits TEs in his sleep...so I'm not worried, but you still want the best talent. I hate that argument...just like the Beilein argument. Yes, he makes underrated players better, but look what the guy did with highly rated players - we almost won a national championship and one was B1G Player of The Year in his 2nd season.

A handful of teams...plus recent bowl games like Miss St., S. Car and KSU have added teams.
|1 day 20 hours ago||He'll never be OT||
That said, Hackett has been a GREAT AD and he's made some BIG TIME moves while at Michigan.
But this thread implies those moves (what the fans see) are what make a great AD. Hiring a great football coach, getting rid of jerseys, and an apparel deal don't make a good AD.
Want me to prove it? If Brandon did all 3 of those things...I still wouldn't think he's a great AD. I wouldn't think he's dog shit...but he definitely wouldn't be great. Just like Hoke for winning a BCS Bowl game (forgot about that, didn't you?) - he's not a dogshit coach, but he's far from great. Winning a BCS game didn't make him great, agreeing to a night game didn't make him great, beating OSU in year 1 didn't make him great.
Hackett has done some awesome things, but it's the things you don't see that make him a great AD. Not hiring a coach, getting the swoosh and eliminating patches. If you think that's what makes an AD...1. you're an idiot, 2. you're shorting all great ADs, 3. you're shorting Jim Hackett.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Harbaugh||
|2 days 2 hours ago||Awful thread.||
|2 days 4 hours ago||Photos?||
What photos? How can I see these photos?
|2 days 4 hours ago||Well don't get too excited||
In a season where we're playing @Wisc, @PSU and @Ark...then have MSU and OSU at home.
That last OPEN date is likely going to be a MAC opponent at home before we go on the road to Camp Randall.
|2 days 4 hours ago||So they're going back to retiring the numbers?||
It says we're getting rid of legends jerseys...but we're also going back to retiring the numbers?
Not a fan of that.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Amen||
They look awful and they clutter the best helmet in all of sports.
Just make a big ass board in the locker room and put the stickers on the board.
OR if they have to go on helmets...put then on practice helmets.
Game helmets should be clean - just maize, blue, and winged. It's the only way.
|2 days 8 hours ago||What's the point?||
He's still likely a backup...I suppose if you think he's the 3rd best safety and he and Peppers and Wilson are head and shoulders above EVERY other option...then maybe it makes sense.
Then you have Peppers and Thomas next year.
But there's really no point to it. Both he and Delano Hill will be back next year to start opposite Peppers along with Kinnel.
|2 days 8 hours ago||They both look stupid||
No to the all white uniforms...no to the all maize (unless it's in a spring game versus the all blue uniforms).
|2 days 8 hours ago||I would in a spring game||
All maize vs. all blue...the Maize & Blue Spring Game.
I'd never want to see EITHER in a regular season or bowl game.
|2 days 8 hours ago||This is always a most depressing summer exercise||
I miss being elite.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I'll say...(3-Deep)||
CB: Jourdan Lewis
S: Jabrill Peppers
|2 days 10 hours ago||IMO, we'll be okay||
This is the year Strib and the safeties should come around and this is the year I think they will.
Don't get me wrong, I still want Countess, I liked him as a starter opposite Lewis and then in the slot in nickel situations where Lyons could come on as a boundary CB.
However, I think Strib turns the corner for us this year and the safeties get Peppers, so the rest are all fighting for 1 spot and the top backup spot.
You're talking about needed to identify 3 players, and 2 of them are backups...I like those odds. Especially when you have guys with starting experience (Wilson, Hill, Thomas) in the mix.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Oh||
And we get all the 5 starz
|2 days 11 hours ago||I'll shorten it for you...||
Best case scenario is we go undefeated, we beat our rivals by a combined score of 150-0, we win a National Championship and Harbaugh signs a new 30 year contract and vows to work each year of it.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Best of luck to Fleet||
Was born just a few years late, would've been a nightmare for Rich Rod. Never a good fit for what Hoke was trying to do.
I hope he doesn't fall into the the trap of lower expectations, more free time, etc. at Tuskee - it's going to be different, for sure. Go DOMINATE athletically and academically.
|3 days 2 hours ago||If that didn't get you hype...maybe this will|

|3 days 7 hours ago||Hopefull||
how do you feel about that one...I have to admit, made me cringe a little.
I usually don't mind for posts...but I hold OPs to a higher standard.
