At this point you’re well aware that Rob Gronkowski’s ankle held up pretty well at the Patriots post-Super Bowl bash which was held like an hour after the team lost to the Giants. Anyway, Gronk acted just as you’d expect a 22-year-old to act after losing the Super Bowl. Dude grinded on some chicks, danced with his fellow New England bros and threw his arms in the air like...
There has been quite an uproar over some Patriots players partying after losing the Super Bowl. Mainly with Rob Gronkowski dancing with LMFAO because Gronk is always in the news. Honestly I couldn't care less and I'm not sure why everybody else does. So some of them went out and got blasted after the game, I'm not really sure why they're not allowed to. They'...
As expected, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was on the active roster for Sunday's Super Bowl XLVI against the Giants.

We've got the keys to the game, the big matchup and much more as Super Sunday is finally here. The player in the spotlight all week, tight end Rob Gronkowski, will be in the spotlight again as the Giants try to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl for the second time in four years.
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is officially active for Super Bowl XLVI, and coach Bill Belichick said he will "definitely" play, according to the NFL Network's Alex Flanagan.
INDIANAPOLIS — Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is dealing with a high ankle sprain, participated in New England’s hour-long walk-through on Friday.
All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski is active for the Patriots for the Super Bowl, as is wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. Gronkowski has been recovering from a high left ankle sprain suffered in the AFC title game. He practiced on a limited basis this week. Receiver Ochocinco was inactive for the conference title game because of the death of his father a week earlier.
The first question, the biggest question, has been answered. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is active for Super Bowl XLVI, the team just announced. He’ll play on that high-ankle sprain, gutting it out. How effective he’ll be, we don’t know.
But the sad news is that Patriots RB Kevin Faulk, the longest tenured player, is inactive. In what will almost certainly be the last game...
By Paul KenyonINDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots have released their list of inactive players for the Super Bowl:
* Defensive tackle Ron Brace
* Running back Kevin Faulk
* Linebacker Gary Guyton
* Quarterback Ryan Mallett
* Offensive lineman Nick McDonald
* Offensive lineman Donald Thomas
* Running back Shane Vereen
That Faulk is inactive for the Super Bowl could mean the running back...
That’s all folks. Well it will certainly take some time for this to all sink in. It was a miserable end, but a great run by the Pats this year. It wasn’t always perfect but the 2011 team was stocked with fighters. It always hurts to get so close only to fall short, and while it would be easy to get carried away it the “what does it all mean” of it all, let’s just take a...
Cold Hard Football Facts points out that the Patriots should maybe return to their dink-and-dunk roots and skip the Brady long-ball:
The entire first half, Brady didn’t throw a ball more than 20 yards in the air, but it didn’t matter. Their 14-play, 96-yard drive to cap the first half was a thing of beauty. Purists might miss the days of three yards and a cloud of dust, but...
