We really didn’t see signs of the old Gronk until the Cincinnati game, where he went off, going for 100 yards and a touchdown. After that, he just caught fire, and I think it culminated in his performance against the Colts in Indianpolis.
First off, his block against safety Sergio Brown was something else. As he said after the game, the big man simply “threw him out of the club.” As dominant as Gronk is as a pass-catcher, when he wants to, he can be just as dominant as a blocker, if not more terrifying. His ability to be a dual-threat is what makes him such a special player, and that was on full display in this game.
Take a look at the block:
And as for the touchdown, well, I’ll just let you watch, and enjoy:
