Of course Beer-Belly Chick is "exaggerating." I don't know why, though.

Everyone knows Billy is a liar, so Reid and the Chiefs will prepare as if Gronk is 100%. If anything this hurts the Pats more than it helps them. Every time they mention Gronkowski's injuries, it's like saying "Watch out for Gronk! You better be ready for him!"

On the off chance that Gronk really is banged up, that can only help the Chiefs, as well, so either way this is good news for us.
