    Looks pretty bad. Ruled out for tonight. I'd be very surprised if it's not a long term injury it was non contact and his knee buckled. Happens to everyone

    Chris Hogan and Mike Gillislee will become the most dangerous WR/RB combo in the NFL.

    Looked ugly - non-contact. Went off on cart. Who's the next man up to play that role assuming he's torn an ACL? Would this tilt the scales at all in the division?

    Nope. Won't even effect the back-2-back SB win talk.

    That's actually a really big impact for them. Brady does a lot of dinking and dunking. Yeah they can cover that area with Gronk and Amendola but both are made of glass and chances are neither will play a full 16 games. Allen admitted he's having a hard time picking up the offense. It'll be interesting to see how they replace him. He is by far their most targeted WR.

    I'm glad I don't have to watch Brady throw passes to that dude . He is an arrogant little punk and I'm glad he's gonna join the ACL club *****.

    Although I think it's bad Karma to wish injuries on an opposing player, $hit happens. We've already paid the Karmic price in spades, so I'm not gonna chide myself for not feeling too bad about this.

    Won't matter unless Belichick strokes out and forgets how to coach football between now and opening day.

    If only other teams in the division could get players of this caliber ... they could challenge the Patriots

    Yes, they possibly go 5-11 because of this, no?

    It made my day finding out about that dude's ACL injury I love it , now if we could only get a couple more patriots to get some good injuries. about a quarter of the way through the season somebody plant Brady to the ground and Break his clavicle.

    At least now he has more time for Tinder hook ups!!!

    Nah in all seriousness, injuries suck regardless of the team. I would like to see us beat the Patriots when they are full go with all pieces but it is the NFL and if we get a win against them man down, will take it and run with it. With that said though, they still have Cooks, Hogan, Danny A., Gronk, hell even Matthew Slater in a pinch, their backs out of backfield catching. As for asking if this tilts the division, not one bit, just means they will work harder and harder in practices. That and we couldn't beat their 2nd and 3rd string QB last season, so Edelman isn't going to break their season.

    They just cut Ealy. Was never impressed with him, but after the Pats gave up a 2nd and 3rd rd picks, all the pundits referenced that trade as one of the great offseason moves that made the Pats stronger (in addition to the Cooks trade).
    Apparently, he didn't fit their scheme and they gave up a good draft pick to get him.

    Can also add TE Dwayne Allen to the list.

    Pats definitely made a mistake, but an admirable aspect of it is that they didn't try to force the issue or pretend that things would be different come the regular season in spite of the draft capital they gave up to acquire Ealy. They immediately took their loss and moved on.

    He always slips my mind with preseason going, I was amazed when they got him during offseason. Highly underrated and is going to shine with that team

    While the rest of the NFL is still going 11 personnel crazy, NE has resorted back to the fundamentals of double RB and double TE looks of 12, 21, and 22 personnel. There always ahead of the curve. Their more recent reliance on 2 WR sets is why the Edelman loss will be cushioned by Hogan and Cooks

    Wait. Did he play for them last year or they just got him this year? He would have been the SB MVP had Carolina won that game. He flamed out in NE that fast?

    They traded for him in the offseason (a 2nd round pick I believe). Never played a down for them.

    Pats still win 12+ games. I'll take it though.

    You don't know what your talking about, the pats only moved down the draft 8 spots to get Ealy. They gave up 2rd but got the Panthers 3rd round pick giving up only 8 spots in the draft. They lost nothing on the trad.

    You're wrong as well, pats gave up 8 spots in the draft, nothing more, Easly was cut before last season.
