With the thanksgiving game looking in the not-so-distant future, this comes as a huge loss to the Pats, who are already without start TE Aaron Hernandez.

This has to be a huge boon to the Jets' confidence, considering how poorly they had been able to cover Gronkowski in the past and how much of a vital role he plays in their offense. Being a home game on a few days rest, this could swing things to a pick em type game if the jets are able to not get in their own way.



Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet New England reports X-rays show Rob Gronkowski indeed has a broken forearm.
It's likely to cost Gronkowski 4-6 weeks, if not longer. Although they are different kinds of players, the loss of Gronk may force the Patriots to act with more urgency on Aaron Hernandez (ankle), who's been practicing the past two weeks but has not played in games. Gronkowski is such a valuable player to New England's offense that he figures to be kept on the roster, rather than placed on injured reserve, in hopes of a very late-season or postseason return. It's obviously a crushing blow to fantasy owners, as well. Gronkowski was the No. 1 overall fantasy tight end through ten games.

The crazy thing is, if the season ends for him this week, he still puts up close to 800 yards and 10 tds, which would go down as one of the better statistical years a TE has ever had. He has 37 tds through 42 games in his career and is a pretty damned fantastic blocker to boot; I truly don't like the kid, but he's already one of the premier red-zone threats of our generation and on his way to one of the best TEs to ever play.

this is good for the Jets. seriously. if the Jets were in contention this would be the best thing ever, but since they're not really this is just good. it also makes me feel good that it happened as he played needlessly in the 4th quarter. good job, Belly!

side note: Gronk's so dumb. I hope he never reproduces.

With the injuries to TEs Gronk and Hernandez, the Jets have the sliver of the crack of a chance on Thursday.

Maybe they can keep it within 2 scores......

This never made sense to me. These guys are pros, being paid far more money than I will ever see to play a game to entertain millions of fans. Those games are 60 minutes long. Until the NFL implements a mercy rule, I would expect my teams to play the last minute of the game with the same intensity as the first, regardless of score.

With 30 seconds left on the clock, Andrew Luck was still in the game, and still throwing. Were the Colts supposed to stop trying too?

You don't stop trying. You have your 2nd and 3rd string play hard. It helps develop your younger players, and obviously prevents needless injuries to star players. Now arguably the best tight end in the game is out for the rest of the regular season, because of their coach's arrogance. I guarantee had this been a Jets player you would be on here complaining that he shouldn't have been in the game up 30 plus points.

Patriots always run up the score. Like, at every opportunity. That said, I did wish that the Jets would at least try to score one more TD in the last 5 minutes today to completely put it away, but they didn't.

People have been saying something like this would happen to a star player of theirs since they started running up the score in 2007, looks like it only took 5 years. I have zero problem with running up the score on an opponent in the pros, it's their job and you don't want your players to get used to only playing hard for 80% of the time they're on the field, but at the same time when it's 100% out of reach, pull your star guys. No point in risking them getting hurt in a meaningless snap.

I dont see it happening. The Gators offense is worse than the Jets. FSU will win.

Crazy though, there's this dude on the local radio around here that has been predicting everything so far this college season perfectly. Picked, GA over FL, picked A&M over Bama, picked both KState and Oregon to go down this week.

Now hear this, he's predicting the Gators to beat FSU, ND to lose to USC, Bama beast UGA in the SECC, and then the Gators to back door in vs. Bama in the NC.

For real? When it was 68-0 nothing and Brady was still out there handing the ball off, I was hoping for a deathly injury.

I will never forgive Mike Shula for ruining Tyrone Prothro's career in a blow out win vs Florida. He had a chance to win Heisman, electric player. Eff Shula One day Brady will
be hammered in one of these blowouts
