Every Tuesday on ESPNBoston.com, questions from Patriots followers are answered as part of a weekly mailbag. This week's mailbag has been posted and includes the following topics:

1. Assessing the Patriots' Super Bowl hopes without Rob Gronkowski.

2. Should Gronkowski consider changing his style of play when he returns to full health?

3. Browns safety T.J. Ward's hit and the idea that he felt the only place he could target was low because of NFL rules.

4. Revisiting Gronkowski's contract and why the end of the 2015 season is a key time period.

5. Fullback James Develin potentially becoming a bigger part of the plan.

6. Looking closer at rookie receiver Josh Boyce in his most extended action of the season.
