Bad injury for New England. Gronkowski's one of their better players.

Perhaps they rushed him back too soon... No Gronkowski in the Super Bowl will be a huge problem.

Meh, not really. It was a bigger problem to have him in the team and playing hurt last year. I'd rather gameplan properly this time around - if we're lucky enough to get there.

At this point my concern is for Gronk personally and not the team. The team can still win without him. But I feel really bad for a guy who's obviously a special talent and has done so much for the team, but once again doesn't get to show his full range of abilities on the biggest stage. You just know that not being there for his team at a time like this is killing him.

Big loss. They're still a really good, efficient offense without him. But a nightmare matchup with both those TEs.

This would have been a bigger lose if Gronk had been part of the game-plan the last several weeks.

Yep. Jeremy Shockey always said how he hated watching his first Super Bowl on the sidelines and how much more it meant to him in New Orleans because he was actually playing.

Not trying to say he prefers the Saints over the Giants but you get the point.

I think this will be relatively easy for the Pats to get over. Last year it would have been a different story.

Gronk is a loss to the team but they have others stepping up and providing a spark to that offense.

He's just scared of Bernard Pollard.

Scared? Gronk can't even spell scared! He doesn't know the meaning of the word!


Seriously.

Gronk, Hernandez, and Graham have all missed time. Gates has missed time or been less than full speed for a number of years.

Meanwhile TG just keeps going. 16 years and has stayed healthy. People might think thats luck, but no.. it's part of his greatness. And to produce for 16 years at an elite level at such a tough position has been nothing shoprt of amazing. Witten, though just a shade below TG IMO, has shown that same elite toughness as well and produced some elite seasons! These guys deserve more credit than they receive. TG and Witten were the two best TE's in the league this year and have been for a long time.

I love Gronk and this sucks for the Pats. Gotta be more available than this next year.

Yeah, Gonzo's durability is pretty legendary. No question he's the GOAT, and the guy Gronk will be gunning for.

***Update***
Quote:
The fractured arm suffered by Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sunday was not identical to the original fracture he suffered November 18, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Also:
Quote:
Because of the implanted plate, there will always be a risk to the area at the end, the source explained, because of a "collection of stress." The injury could have occurred "three years from now" in the same spot, said the source.
