Between his rookie and sophomore seasons, Rob Gronkowski transformed from one of the best red zone tight ends in the game to one of the best tight ends period. As a pass-catcher in 2011, no one was better than Gronk. He hauled in 90 balls for more than 1,300 yards and 17 touchdowns.

A.B. I know absolutely nothing about football in the 1920′s but I’m going to assume that if Brady played back then he would have been unstoppable. Play calling at the line, hard counts, audibles, play action, pooch punts, screen passes, 30 yard missiles, goal line dives and just being a 6’4 quarterback in general.
And at 6’4 he would probably be the...
