We may not be facing him now!
Every little bit helps!
I guess is ok to post it here cause we're playing the pats so it is Dolphins related. Even without him I'm not holding my breath. BB uses whoever he has and beats you with it. Still, a little break for our LB's?
NFL suspended Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski one game for violating its player-safety policy.
Miami is winning out
God I wish this made a difference.
I think he does not appeal, as the next game is Pitt
It might make a difference in beating up Brady more. We won't win but we beat the snot out of him in the first game. I'd love to hit him even more.
well with bennett hurt, the TE would be out of the question. That helps the LB's coverage simpler and maybe helps pass rush a bit. Maybe we can send an extra guy. still will have problems with amendola and cooks and their backs out the backfield
Should have been more that was as cheap a shot as I’ve seen. He gave the guy a concussion, if it had happened to Brady the player would be permanently banned
I know they are better than us and will likely win but I love seeing Tommy Boy pick himself up and go straight to the official to complain. In the last game it got to the point where that's all I was looking for. We hit him a lot, word is he missed practice 2 days (he's been nursing an Achilles) but his left arm was also heavily wrapped.
NFL wants to see a Pitt NE game with all the stars
I don't know if that's enough to save them from backlash. Watch them knees, boys.
I don’t care if we’re 0-15. Living up here in NewEngland, I ALWAYS want the Fins to beat the Pats. Every little bit helps.
Gronk is such a dirty POS for doing that. **** the Pats!
Probably correct. They don't need Gronk to beat the Dolphins.
Yup and beat up Tommy Boy. I live here too, it's so obnoxious. What's funny about this is Patriots fans think there team is more righteous than all of the others on top of being great. Pretty much anybody who hits Brady after he releases a pass, penalty, fine or not, is a dirty player.
The article on PFT said he is expected to appeal.
It'll be interesting to see if the Bills retaliate in any way in a few weeks, though I doubt they will.
NFL was quick to hand out a 2 game suspension for a lame fight between Crabtree and Talib, but only 1 game for a dirty attack on a defenseless player that causes a concussion (and could have been much worse) right in the middle of CTE being a huge issue? Have to assume that a lesser known player gets far more time off.
If we can beat the scumbags from NE and that somehow helps cost them home field advantage and leads to them not getting back to the Super Bowl then this season won't be a TOTAL loss.
not to mention knock Bradys *** out of action...cmon Suh
He should be suspended twice as many games as White misses because of the cheap shot. Is Goodell ever going to take CTE seriously? I don't even know if he realizes how precarious this whole head injury thing has gotten. Gotta be proactive or the result will be some watered down, minimal contact version of what we're used to.
We need to win no matter who's out there. Never look for a handout
So true and counter to what the league says it cares about..
I think Hogan probably will be back in the line up for Monday night.. out of the sling and I believe he started to practice..
Gronk will not appeal. The best game he can sit out would be against us.
He sure as heck isn't going to sit out the Pittsburg game when top record
and home field advantage could be up for grabs.
In the case Pittsburgh does beat the Pats, The Pats would need to win
the last 2 games against Buffalo and the Jets and hope Pittsburgh
can lose a game
If you want a good laugh then watch the little press conference they had with him where he whines and complains about all the penalties being called on them for ridiculous stuff as being the reason for his frustration.
A new england patriot complaining about ridiculous penalties being called against them......Perspective is a powerful thing.
I live in CT, which is also patriots country and the days after Miami beats the pats are glorious!
The days after pats beat Miami....not so glorious....
I’m surprised Gronk would do something like that. You would think he of all people, with his past of making his feelings known on cheap hits to his knees (be it legal or illegal) that he’d be the last person to do a cheap shot like that.
Beating the Pats on MNF will make this whole season IMO
He's lucky it was only 1 game. He deserves more for what he did......
I watched it. All I heard out of his mouth was “duuuuuuuhhhhh”
I've watched Gronk for years and if you are able to take him out of the game (difficult to do) his frustration boils over. This is not the first time he has done something like this, probably not as dramatic but definitely not the first time.
well they would come back with a decision by the game. it isn't like he would gamble to play and then get suspended for Pitt game
I hope Suh gets ejected for ripping Brady's leg off and beating him with it. It might be the only way anyone on the team will get any respect this week.
It would be great to knock Brady out with a non penalty non fine hit. Pats fans would change their tunes quickly.
Not sure there's a team that whines more about penalties than they do. Brady especially.
Bills should go for his knees on every play. Most of them will be legal. I'm not sure if chop blocks are illegal for defensive players, because why would anyone ever do that? But, that'd be a good way to make sure you end his season, which should be the goal of every Buffalo defender. A 1-game suspension is an absolute joke. Will be hard for the league to fine or suspend someone for retaliation on a legal play - think Swearinger/Keller.
I think if he loses the appeal, which he should, then they should tack on an extra game for the hassle
So asinine. The team that gets more benefit of the doubt and bogus calls than anyone... jeesh
I hope someone goes after Gronk, what a scumbag. How he isn't suspended more than 1 game for an obviously intentional malicious move is beyond me.
