It was a PAT. By that logic we shouldn't run anyone but special teams players for the entire fourth quarter and let the Colts have a very real chance of coming back.

The Texans scored 14 points in the last 5 minutes.

Do you idiots really believe the Patriots secondary is incapable of giving up an extra touchdown with an extra 7 minutes of playing time?

You play to win the game, not to lose the game. I realize you have a blind hatred for the Patriots, but try not to be so biased. Every team does it and does it for good reason. Belichick has a tiny bit more credibility than you, sorry.


HAHAHA coming from you. Cmon man.

Did he break his radius or ulna or both? I'm guessing that broken forearm means both are broken.

I think Gronk is an arse of a person but it always sucks when someone gets injured. Wish him a speedy recovery.

Belichick deserved this. He had no business playing starters with a 30 point lead deep in the 4th quarter. Won't hurt too badly but he was destroying Indy. I'm not saying it's a good thing he got injured however, you never want to see a guy get injured.

Haven't heard. The only detail we know right now is that it's expected to be 4-6 weeks.

I'd assume the same, but you never know.

So now Graham is currently the best TE in the NFL! Cool

How many teams put backups in on the PAT team in blowouts?

Atleast the Pats have a few other TEs who can come in. Is Shiancoe still around?

Yep. Have Hernandez, Shiancoe, Hoomasdofpuci, and Fells. Fells is the most well-rounded, but he was a healthy inactive today.

This has to be the most annoying lingering logical fallacy around the NFL. Injuries are going to happen, period.

Belichick was supposed to learn this from all of the other players who have broken their arms on PATs before?


Is it really that difficult to understand? Football is dangerous, leaving star players in for any play leaves tem exposed to injury. Whether you thought said play was dangerous or not, it got honks rm broken. I'm sure other guys could have filled his roll, why didn't they?

Tom Brady tore his ACL on the 2nd offensive series of the season in 2008. Wes Welker tore his ACL on a non-contact injury in the first quarter of an essentially meaningless game in 2009.
Injuries can and will happen at any given time during a football game. If you take a guy out at some point in the game, you replace him with someone else who could be no less important to the team in the grand scheme of things. So what do you do if that guy gets hurt?

You're making it a big deal because the chance of Gronk getting seriously hurt is greater than 0. I'm saying it's not a big deal because the probability of him getting seriously hurt is something like .01%. Is Belichick really supposed to change his ST personnel based on a .01% chance?
