New Story: Antonio Allen Stars in 'Containing Gronk'
Remember the old quote about guarding Michael Jordan? "You can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him."
Substitute Rob Gronkowski for Michael Jordan and the quote works just the same.
Gronkowski played in his first game of the season and sure he still needs to improve his conditioning, as he was clearly gassed at the end of the game, and needs to get more comfortable with the arm brace as he too often tried to make one-handed catches, but if anyone doubted that he would contribute immediately they had to feel silly once the game began.
