Default Gronk out for the season?

Possible torn ACL.

I'm not sad.

Wish we could've gotten a two-fer and Brady went out with him.

Yeah, I went there.

Not ashamed to say it.

The nfl rules to protect players at work. Perfectly clean season ending injury.

It is what it is. Doesn't matter if people like it or dislike it. It's not going to change the fact that it happened. Both NE and DEN really banged up this year. Still the 2 best teams in the AFC. Just goes to show you how important good depth is. That's why all those late round picks mean so much. All those undrafted players. Some of these guys will be on the field for you at some point in most cases.

I hate to see a guy get injured(unless it's Brady) but this does help us in making our inevitable rematch a little easier.

I think we can beat that team with or without Gronk. I'm never happy to see injuries, but it's part of the game. We've been bitten as bad as any team this year.

Never like to see anyone get injured, personally.

It's part of the game though, and more injuries like this will happen with the new rules to "protect" the players.

Yep, if the NFL would have just let that DB Atwater him Gronk, there's probably a 90 percent chance he'd been fine and probably holds onto the ball. Now you have the best athletes in the world targeting knees so they don't get penalized and fined. Bravo NFL.

Feel bad for Gronk. It was an a$$hole play by Ward who speared his knee. Don't know if it was deliberate or not (probably not) but I hate seeing that stuff from any player on any team.

Believe it or not, players don't want to go low either. Guilty conscience... ending a players season/career...

However, Gronk is impossible to take down above the knees...

He'll be down at the local club tonight with a brace on his knee and his shirt off.

That wasn't dirty. That was caused by Ward thinking a split second before the tackle to go low and avoid the penalty and fine that would have come had he just run through Gronk and got some helmet to helmet.

Good to see people not celebrating the injury for the most part. We're better than that.

I agree. Take away the wind in NE and Denver wins that game. Or if DRC finished the game we would have won.

I can't worry about NE injuries… we've had so many of our own to pay attention to. I'm just hoping we have enough depth to be the last team standing at the end of the season.

Karma for the Patsy player who leg whipped Charles Johnson (I think) on the Panthers. I still cannot believe they didn't even call a PF on it.

Yeah it looked dirty to me. And I feel bad for Gronk after battling back. Imagine rehabbing like that for months and some dick Spears you and you're back to square one. That's terrible.

Marcus Cannon.

That was a dirty play, and a stomp to the head would've been justified.

There was 2 leg whips attempted by the Patriots OL that play. Lucky, Johnson is finally back and playing right now.

People just love conspiracies and drama in this world. The whole he didn't want to go high cuz of fines and penalties and blah blah blah. TJ Ward wasn't thinking about all that stuff.

all he was thinking was......the only way Gronk is going down here and now is if I take out his legs because he's an animal.

Unfortunate it caused injury

Yep, he just wanted to stop the Gronk. Unfortunately, Gronk blew his knee out and is gone for the season.
