Gronk broke forearm on New England's last PAT to put them up 59-24

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
As @tomecurran reported, Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski broke his forearm. Am told he did it on the Patriots' last extra point.

You have 45 guys on the game day roster. This isn't college where you can run a whole separate team of guys out there to do stuff.

You've got the snapper, holder and kicker, so you need 8 more guys, all of whom are blocking, right? Most of those guys are big beefeaters, and you've only got 7 OLinemen on the game day roster. Gronk is a very, VERY good blocker. I'm hardly surprised he's on the PAT block team, probably along with 6 or so OLinemen and a couple other TE types.

FWIW (nothing), Gronk only played one snap on that final series leading up to the TD, and then he was on for the PAT as he's ALWAYS on for the PAT (there's no backup PAT blocking team).

Their ridiculous luck of losing an AWESOME player to injury for a few weeks makes me want to throw things at my Pats fan roommate.

If Gronk was a Chief his arm would've been amputated

If it makes you feel better, we basically lost Gronk for the SB last year and I'm utterly convinced we would've won if he'd been 100%. He's that impossible to deal with, and the game was that close.

Oh, and Mankins played on a torn ACL all of last year. Everyone was wondering why he was only good, instead of awesome, and then we found out after the season was over.

And of course we lost Welker in the last game of the season in 2009, so we didn't have him in the playoffs. This was pre-Gronk/Hernandez, so our entire offense was basically nothing but Moss/Welker. Not that we were going to do squat that year, but still.

None of this is to complain about our injuries. All teams have them, but don't for a second think the Patriots HAVEN'T had their fair share of injuries the last few years.

Top player injured while running up the score...

sounds like karma at work, IMO.

My hatred of Eli Manning and desire to see the local team succeed made that game so excruciating.

Also, be prepared to never win another Super Bowl for as long as I live here and/or have a positive opinion of your team. Sorry.

Man, karma's some pretty weak sauce.

Your #1 weapon should never be on the PAT team. Gates doesn't do it despite being our best blocker. I'm betting Tony Gonzalez didn't do it either. You have more than enough bodies to fill out a PAT team without Gronk even if it means you put a DL in there to do it.

The funniest thing is if Belichick had truly embraced his inner dickishness and gone for two on last TD, Gronk would never have gotten hurt.

And yet, when Richard Seymour was the fullback in goal line situations and got hurt when someone rolled up on his leg, BB got reamed for that too.

You've only got 45 guys. You put the best players out there to perform the tasks necessary to win the game. You can't sit there and think "well, this guy plays 60 snaps a game on offense, running down the field and blocking, and he's the best guy to put on PAT, which is like 5 snaps per game -- but WHAT IF HE GETS HURT ON PAT DUTY?!?!"

Any player can get hurt on any play. That's the reality of the NFL. Sometimes shit happens.

I wish we could get our PAT team out there, once a game...

I'm sorry but last year's super bowl was not on Gronk..brady made a bad throw to a wide open welker. Even with Gronk gone for a few weeks, I don't even see this as a big loss, they're offense is too potent with Ridley and Lloyd.
