I expect he'll be on a tight snap-count.

Yep. He'll play, though. Probably end zone plays unless the Pats are down. In that case, he plays every down in the 4th quarter.

I'd bring him in on third downs throughout the whole game.. If he plays and feels well give him a few more snaps.

If he doesn't seem up to par forlots of contact.. Just practice your routes and take advantage of your leverage carefully for the game.
Decoy Gronk be very happy fooling folks when he can.

Yeah... I see don't see Gronk as an every down player right now. Good to see him starting in the 1st game though.
The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.

If the Pats see that the refs are still calling the ticky tack contact calls they will run him down the field a bunch just to get the calls.  Gronk always has hands on him.
It is the NFL...Not a knitting class.

BB is such an ass

Belichick on Gronk:

"I'm glad Rob is optimistic about his situation.
We'll go through the week of practice, take a look at everything."

With all due respect to Rob, I'm glad he feels the way he does,
but in the end, we'll do what's best for the team."

He's bacically saying I'm still in charge.  I'm guessing he didn't like Gronk annoucing he's playing.  That said, I think he will play.

Exactly Gino - who plays & who doesn't isn't Gronk's call ...

I think BB's just being realistic. Gronk didn't even play in pre-season, it'll take a game or two before he's bak up to speed.
