Oh, Gronk. Oh, Gronk, Where art though, Gronk? Much has been made about Rob Gronkowski‘s surgically repaired left forearm this week and considering the pace the offense was rolling in recent weeks, the frustration is justified. Gronkowski is expected to be out for four to eight weeks, and with Aaron Hernandez still ailing from a lingering ankle injury, the questions are just piling up about the Patriots offense. The good in all this may be that while all the focus surrounds Gronk’s forearm this week, questions about the porous secondary have seemed to subside. Oh wait, you’re telling me people are still worried? A pair of interception returns for touchdowns wasn’t enough to ease the concerns? Well, in that case, I’ll just have to dig deep, adjust the game plan and find away to answer the variety of questions you guys have sent into this week’s special Thanksgiving mailbag. Or should I call it the Gronkbag? Either way, there’ll be plenty of tryptophan and cranberry sauce to go around...

Patriot’s Offense Will Survive Without Gronk

There is no doubt Rob Gronkowski’s broken forearm, which will keep him out four to six weeks, will hurt the Patriot’s offense, but the team will continue to produce without him.  They have too many weapons not too.  Yes, Gronk is a major part of the offense, but other players will step up and produce.  Aaron Hernandez should be back from injury this week, and if Julian Edelman...

New York Post covers upcoming Jets-Pats tilt

This is so stupid. First of all, what gives the New York Post even the slightest bit of confidence that the 4-6 Jets now have a cozy match up against the 7-3 New England Patriots. Yeah, Rob Gronkowski won't be playing but it's looking like Aaron Hernandez will. Tom Brady is still under center and the Patriots have Wes Welker and Stevan Ridley as their other two top weapons...
