I don't care for him, to me he easily replaced Vrabel as a source for my dislike. With that said I hate to see a good player miss time.

How long would he be out?

Well now they might trade him for Hernandez.

Never liked Gronk's act. The dude is flat out stupid.

That said, sorry for his injury, at least it happened to a team with 14254 TEs.

I disliked him a lot too. But Vrabel always seemed more chippy.

The Manning to Harrison touchdown which took an amazing throw and an amazing catch where Harrison hops up and spikes it and the ball bounces off Vrabel's grill is easily among my favorite individual plays ever. With the spike off the facemask being the cherry on top.

Yea, I hope it happened in garbage time. They always run up the score. The bad part is Brady and Bellicek won't be there when the Pats go down hill in a couple years and they get a taste of their own medicine.

Why was he still in the game? Maybe they should have thought this through before running the score up like that.

I saw a report that it happened on their final extra point attempt.

With the turnovers & special team lapses it would have been hard for them not to score 50+points unless they just take a knee...Which would have been even more embarassing.

Gronk is a complete >....sorry if that is offensive, but it's true. I read more than a few magazine articles (ESPN for one) and drew my own conclusions about how big of a lunkhead this guy is....Good thing he's good at playing football. Because there ain't much room for more upstairs. He is stereotypical "me like football" guy...

That said, I am sure he's a good dude, even if not so bright. I know he has a big charity for underprivileged youth, so that counts for something. If the injury occurred in garbage time, then that is all on Belichick. Karma, AGAIN (Welker in 2009, SB losses, etc.) for being a classless *.

He's a goof, but overall, harmless. However, I didn't like him standing over Bethea and talking to him after that one catch. Of course, he could have been telling him, "man, your pass coverage sucks," which of course would be true..... ;)

Pretty funny that he broke it after they should've been resting their starters but stayed in to run it up.

for what its worth it happened on the PAT on that last TD . . .and during that drive the only signficant starters that we had in the game were Brady and Welker, we had our 3th adn 4th TE in and our #3 RB . . . we could not use our #4 RB as he is presently suspended . . .

alas, Gronk is our outside blocker on a PAT and seeing that i can not remember in over 40 years of watching football an injury on a PAT, things can happened and happen at any time . . . first play or last play not much one can do about it . . .

one can argue should key starters play on ST which i would agree with, but that is a separate issue from resting starters . . .

They couldn't help but run that score up.

A Saints fan should know that, Sean Payton learnt it from Bill Belichick, I guess. :)

he's only out 4 weeks and the pats are in a easy division.

I am calling a Jets upset next week on the road for the Pats if Gronk and Hernandez are both out. :)

Yeah I heard 4 to 6 weeks. And I swear Hernandez almost played vs. us. it seems for several days based on practice reports, I don't even want to think about him and Gronk at the same time today and what they could have done. :facepalm:

I never gave them a pass, is that what you are suggesting? Or are you sticking up for Bogie because he is a Luck lover?

The Pats have always run up the score, starting with their 2007 identity, most evident when Belichick ran it on Gregg Williams when he was DC with the Redskins 52-7 in 2007 and then Gregg Williams was happy to return it in blitzes and hits to Brady in their MNF shellacking in the 2009 Pats-Saints game in NO due to which Belichick sat Brady for the last 5 minutes.

Some come here (mostly Pats fans) and say that it is the job of the D to stop the scoring. Saints fans say the same thing as well. But both of them - Belichick and Sean Payton can be ruthless when it comes to stat mongering late into games, IMO.

No, it's just an observation to me over time based on reactions to the teams. I was not singling you out.

As for being a Luck lover...I know he likes him but believe me, he is not on Jules level of love for the young lad. :thmup:

We have probably gotten de-sensitized to the Pats running up the score, it seems like, around here. :)

Loss to the Saints in the SB is more recent, so probably the Saints are more front and center on people's minds, especially with the bounty and Brees breaking Marino's record and all. That is what I chalk it up to.

It also goes to show us how Belichick felt about Luck and Arians' offense, a big play offense, so a 4 TD lead was something he felt was necessary with the way Arians lets Luck wing it. However, with Orlovsky last year, he really took the foot off the gas in quarter 4 and people here thought Orlovsky cutting the score close was some testament to something in the Colts offense or Mr. O, LOL :)

Sure it belongs here. It happened in the Colts game.

And, more to the point, it happened late in the 4th quarter on a meaningless extra point.... what was Gronk doing in the game, anyway...?

SPEAKING OF WHICH....

What the Heck was Andrew Luck doing in the game in the 4th quarter? We were getting killed. Whatever benefits could've been gained by playing and getting his brains beat in, would have been nothing compared to a possible injury he could have suffered.

In short, very little upside, and a HUGE downside!

What was Arians thinking? And I don't care if he asked Luck if he wanted to stay in and Luck said 'yes'.... of course Andrew would say yes.... he wouldn't say anything else.... Stanton should have been put in...

That's when the Head Coach needs to be the Head Coach and make the right decision for the good of the team. We've got a legit shot at the playoffs and if Luck had been injured in the 4th quarter Colt's Nation would have been in full meltdown mode and with darn good reason.

The play calling was poor today. And Luck was a flat-out Rookie who got schooled today by The Master. He'll learn.

But if he had been hurt in the 4th quarter, that could've ended our 'feel good' season we're having....

We got lucky that nothing bad happened.... other then getting killed on National TV.....

There's a day to forget.....

    • Which one would you like to make the roster saying we keep atleast 5 WR. It's possible we keep 6 but I think it's unlikely we only keep 4. Personally I like Tevaun Smith. I think he gives us a little bit more size and he can play outside better than chester can. I think Chester could be an excellent slot WR for us and a good punt returner however Bray can fill that same role and is proven in returns. I don't think Bray can play outside as well as smith and that's a big part of why i thinks he has an edge.

    • This is the obvious answer.....he just wasn't the right fit for this defense 
    • He could have severely impacted or potentially lost his leg -IF- the ATC had not acted quickly, decisively, and properly in that situation (stabilizing it, calling for paramedics for transport).  Because he did, they only have to worry about knee reconstruction. There's a good chance once swelling subsides and they can surgically repair it, they may also have a ruptured PCL, and possible MCL and LCL damage.  Also, there is concern for cartilage damage as well. The more involved and worse they are will impact recovery time, no doubt.   I'm not sure who reduced the knee dislocation and when (likely the Orthopedic surgeon at the hospital), but nerve and vessel injury has now been ruled out telling me they've determined TB has no numbness in his leg/foot and the pedal pulses can be palpated (felt) at his inner ankle and/or on top of the foot. So those potentially serious issues aren't a problem, from what we are told.   Since no nerve or blood supply problem, reconstruction and rehab is the game.  That depends, as mentioned, on thea mount and extent of ligament damage along with the ACL.  We will not know until they surgeons go in and make the repairs, and then we get an update. Remember TB doesn't have to be as 'recovered' as and Adrian Peterson or Wide Receiver.  and while ACL repair take 6-9 months, dislocated knee without nerve/Atery damage takes 9-12.  So, from my perspective,  TB could possibly be ready if no setbacks, and no nerve or arterial problems occur in recovery.  He's young, and Adrian Peterson, who defied his odds and recovered early, there to encourage him on that road to recovery.  I'm taking the optimistic road (unusual for me) on this one until a report comes out that makes me lower my head, and ultimately alter my timeline.
