    They did it to BM so I expect the same. Not for the rest of the game but he needs to sit down for a series.

    Calling for the punt and then not doing anything was the ****ing dumbest of everything he's done today. I expect to see that with moronic baseball outfielders, not a member of a Bill Belichick football team.

    3 drops, a dumb non-fair-catch or whatever that was, and now a fumble.

    To the OP. Dude, you need to stop with all this negative reactionary crap. When you live by rookies in the NFL, you're are going to die by rookies n the NFL. This a brutally competitive league and with all the young players we have on this team, this will likely not be the only game this year that plays out like this. Rookies make dumb mistakes. Its part of the learning curve. How can you be surprised by this?
    This is a good young team and they're fun to watch. But the 2003/04 Pats they are not.
    Again, how can you be surprised by any of this?

    Gronk should be cut, resigned, then cut again just so he gets the message.

    No, how can he improve if you bench him?

    He should play more minutes for his evolution from good to great TE. I prefer these mistakes today than in a SB GAME.

    Clark and Witten didn't become who they are today in 6 games or 7 games.

    Gronk had a really rough game, no doubt. But he is a rookie, and there were plenty of rookie mistakes today. So long as Gronk learns from the mistakes, I have no problem playing him next week.

    And, as rough as it was, he still had some positive plays (e.g., drawing a DPI on 4th down).

    Gronk's mistakes set the tone for the game. It all snowballed from there. First the muffed return, then the drops, then the fumble at the goalline when the Pats could have closed within 3 points in the first half.

    I'm not going to lay it all at his feet, but he was a big reason why the Pats lose. The rest of the team is to blame too of course. They really didn't show up to play today.

    No Jersey Selected

    One thing I have always liked about the Patriots team is that when someone makes a mistake, they turn around and almost immediately give them another shot. Benching someone for making a mistake will only injure someone's confidence and make them a worse player. This serves only to injure the team as a whole over time. Is that really a good idea?
