    #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski headed to the locker room late in the 4th Q. Post-game X-rays confirm a broken forearm. #NFL

    Maybe the Pats should have sat Gronk with a huge lead instead of trying to run up the score.

    Lose your star TE while running up the score. I think that's Karma knocking Bill.

    I've been saying for years now that BB is a freaking arrogant id!ot the majority of the time. The guy hasn't been able to fix that horrible defense in NE for years now spending the majority of draft picks on defense, and he constantly leaves his starters in games when they are way ahead. He still had Tom Brady and Welker in there when they had 52 freaking points!! The Patriots have success every year, because Tom Brady is able to get it done with all types of different weapons year in and year out. If Brady doesn't have a perfect game practically their defense gives up the game. BB is not this genius HC that people tout him as. He's got Tom Brady and Tom studies teams even more then BB does from what BB has stated himself. Why in the world would you keep a weapon like Gronk in at the end of the game like that?? :mariopalm:

    BB just ****ed his whole team up just because he wanted to run up a score more for his own ego.

    Can't discredit what you say here Tex but they've still got a pile of weapons in their arsenal. I think they'll miss Gronk but still be able to be more than (or is it then? :) competitive until he comes back.

    I agree though that BB seems to be a little on the arrogant side.

    He seems pretty cool off the field in the NFL specials though I don't know exactly how much they're staged and/or scripted.

    I hate to hear of any player getting hurt, especially the great ones since they make so many wonderful plays, but as long as he's out for the Texans game in 3 weeks I'll be really happy. TE's over the middle kill us.

    Im not sure karma and breaking your arm having much to do with one another. Or having him in the PAT package = running up the score

    I can't fault him for being in for PATs. As I've read around today, teams have only so many guys and many big names still block and help on ST. You just don't fill in guys on extra point units, etc.
