Sports by Jerry -- their fine fine Patriots blogger. Also -- this weekend. But myself. Troy Brown Mike -- pileup Richards pre and post game on Comcast sports net two hours prior couple hours after. Jerry joins us on the eighteenth -- expert hotline Jerry what do you make of the latest with Rob Gronkowski. Quote that this has started like I I I just like I'm Michael left and every time a dead intro now mechanically I don't that. Some I can't get started in my eyes -- Troy Brown might land Ty law and Jerry sort it it's like when they did dads whose kids they coach in football said it sounds like. That's I felt great like -- and Gary can stand up. A lot I mean what's amazing is that I haven't had. I haven't had yet to peel you off of tie or Troy in the conference -- we watch the game you've saved yourself so I. Have a well I do pretty much on the car and scream Michaels. Now beyond that but. Troy Brown -- -- last -- it's it was -- bulletins and I had that's like I once took a helicopter to the grand -- which was previously the best moment of my life. Think that now that that just blows that away sorry about the birth of my two kids split title I mean territory abruptly -- the big deal come. Okay so. I wanted to wake up today to another chronic injury update like I wanted to hear a new on to get his divorce. I would rather have listened to Bruce Jenner and Miley Cyrus started -- the government shut down. Then one more word a pulpit I -- so grunt injury doubt like Kevin said that this story I don't know I mean -- It's -- didn't really bad until I actually read the thing. And it the alliance. Story here it -- they get a procedure. And it didn't go according to plan and they had to do more procedures I don't I don't know -- with the new here. What Jerry is given that it's just a broken arm. -- I mean like as Mike said something every twelve year old boy has suffered at some point in his life hooked up. I total frustrated by the fact that this is -- -- like it adds or are are frightened that something you know it to its journey it's almost eleven months now. Oh yeah that's -- he underwent -- -- setback and it was an infection but I mean but again you know that when big skip the first procedure. Do what I imagine a console. Imagine people talked about it and they discussed that with crunch people leave. That it gets kidnapped -- Mike Bryan Cox did to Wolverine in the X-Men movie with dread about -- some forested started putting medal in his. And he'd be felt winded and it was a -- so it it is horribly frustrating believe I would like one of the things so. In our rear view it and you -- directly to Halloween and we still wondered if he's gonna. See the field -- I'm frustrated and believe me I want to do would ever take to get him on the field and use whatever masking agent is -- I would have -- on the field. Aram because. You know I can't take this haven't you know haven't said that to Matt Chatham was a -- a pretty good voice on the things you know between dictate that you can't find a Patriot or an ex Patriots. With a bad thing to say about the medical staff there. You know which is kind of be an unpopular under talked about it and all this is that you don't people who are fine with that. With the -- that they have gotten working for the Patriots is always so until we got Beckett so we. We assign all -- easily nefarious things and his incompetence and you know he's The Three Stooges were even yelled that the tools and in -- don't -- whatever. So Jerry no one has ever had a public Thomas -- which is why the National Football League players association filed a grievance against the Patriots. Asking the Patriots to remove him his team doctor. But it specifically he said no former Patriots. I don't think -- -- counts because he never you know he never made it to to training camp but in Italy and maybe -- Did mess up I don't see again I don't. I don't know I'm I'm barely a blogger much less. But doctor and I I would look to go over his charts and and look at it MRI but god it's just speculation on -- speculation not. I just got to look out in the field and I see. Matthew Mulligan and that's and it's not that solid all he'd like I just want to keep them on their no matter what it takes him and I'd hate. It but again with the with the Patriots -- said that before every single injury they have. Always comes down to a moral failure on somebody's part you know when we Jimmy Graham this time last year Saints can't just kind of went. That's like Jimmy Graham doubtful about everything turns into an episode of Chicago hope. Now I'm not really that's what's different and you know at. You sort of thoughts on the chances this week without Rob Gronkowski. I'll be honest with you and and I I do tend more towards the positive. Arm but this he seemed just just terrified me and you know -- inherited a fun fact that the last time they played each other with 2009. Yeah yeah and you remember that spell check of football like it was that game there where he famously turned to Brady and said. I just can't get this team to the -- -- well. The fun fact is there's been like five times in football history. That someone had a perfect passer rating in the game is one that was one of them and I've seen a case made that that was the single greatest performance. By a quarterback in NFL history. Now granted I was totally different defense that that we have now but I'm just kind of institutionally. Terrified of of Drew Brees and and and everything about him and him with this team based on their based on tight ends. And run him back. And as you and I've talked Mike what are the two things that the Patriots have never shown that they can stop this. Tight ends and running backs -- passes so yeah there's there's a lot to be scared about it I would. I'd I'd I'd love to say that all of a sudden. You know -- dole was back and that's all we need but. Where that would Oakmont it's it's going to be hard for me to put a happy face and.
