Ugh. Useless.

I bet Garcon isn't far behind him. I wish he'd get the fargin' surgery.

You mean surgery on his good knee. Good lord. Poor guy.

He made an immediate impact in the game for sure.

No kidding. You hear about Gronk? I know bones aren't ligaments but still ...

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had surgery Monday morning on his broken left forearm, which he injured in Sunday's blowout victory over the Indianapolis Colts, according to a person informed of the procedure.

The initial projection was for Gronkowski to miss four to six weeks. There are six weeks remaining in the regular season, which means Gronkowski could be out until the playoffs.


The knife the day after. If only Garcon had done that. All the other WRs would be a little further along and who knows where Garcon would be ...

Well... you're right... bones aren't ligaments. If Garcon has the surgery, he's done for the year. If he'd had the sugery in September, he'd have been done for the year. Might as well ride it out.

What is it with us and the Safety position?

Starting with Sean Taylor, we just are destined to never have a decent safety corps ever again?!

I bet there's a Mara behind this somehow

There is no telling if we would have gone the cheep and available route with safety with out the cap hit. I mean do you really think we would have gone into the season with Meriweather, Jackson, and williams competing to start at safety of not for the cap hit. So in a way z mara is begins our problems at safety.

Still, I'd rather he was rehabbing now instead of riding it out indefinitely. I think Mike in control of all things creates a conflict of interest between taking the long view and trying to win now. Someone else should buy the groceries while Mike focuses on cooking. Throw him a pick-in-the-7th-round bone every year.

Better make it a 6th round pick. First Royster and Robinson and now Morris.

In fact, let's trade a 4th or 5th each year to get an extra couple of 6s for Shanny to play with.
