Remember the good times we had when Rob Gronkowski was healthy, and Aaron Hernandez wasn’t a murderer?

Well, I saw flashes of that dominant offense last night, all thanks to Tim Wright, who also happens to wear Hernandez’s number 81. Wright has a similar skill-set to Hernandez, and when you combine him with Gronk between the numbers, good things happen. Tom Brady actually had time to throw in this game, which gave him the opportunity to hit these two guys carving up the Cincinnati linebackers.

Gronkowski and Wright combined for 11 catches, 185 yards, and two touchdowns. The Bengals had no answer for either of them all game, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of other teams that won’t be able to handle them either. I can’t wait to see what this duo looks like in a few weeks, once they get more and more comfortable with Brady and the offense.
