Talk radio in Boston should be fun this week as fans chew over the news Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski broke his forearm during the extra-point attempt with New England ahead of the struggling Colts by 35 points and less than five minutes left on the clock.
As our own fearless leader Christmas Ape pointed out, this injury could have been prevented.
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.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport reports Gronk should be out for 4-6 weeks, which means he should be back just in time for the playoffs if the current AFC East standings hold. (Considering how the Dolphins, Jets and Bills have been playing, it should be an annoyingly sure thing for the Patriots to make the post season yet again this year.)

See Gronk, our Spanish is just as bad as yours.
