Gronk is in beast mode. Over a hundred yards and 2 TDs, 1st half not over. NE offense in top form.

Denard with a 41 yard run. Gerhart's career is probably over I don't think I can watch the NFL anymore. If we can't have just one White starter at rb, thats just ridiculous. You know Gerhart got double digit carries only twice this season, one of those times was 10 carries to Denard's 9. Its not like he was ever allowed to get into a rhythm. Denard has 11 carries right now and its not even halftime. Its not just because of what he was getting, they were inpatient as well, a 3 yard run and they stop doing it for the entire drive. This happened in Minnesota in his few starts when he averaged much higher.

Pretty solid coverage by McClellan, but Gronk just too good!! (we all know how the Chicago DWFs saw it though)

Right, thats the most frustrating part of the Gerhart situation. Even though he was the 'starter' he was never given the ball enough to get anything going. Secondly, it seems like evertime I saw him carry, he was running out of the shotgun, as opposed to the I. He's a power back, not a scat back...

Couple that with a young O-line, young QB, and not much of a threat anywhere on the field to relieve pressure, plus a nagging ankle injury... Just bad luck I guess... Nothing went right for him...

Rob Ninkovich scores on a 15-yard fumble return.

Gronk is on fire...but Edelman and Amendola have yet to record a catch. Let's hope the Pats, who are destroying the lowly Bears, don't go into "Packer Mode" (shutting down their offense, preventing white receivers from compiling stats).

Gerhart is just unfortunate. Good guy, and a good talent, but just unlucky to be a good athlete in a caste position, and to be flitted about the league with teams that don't care to use him properly, in addition to his injury. Sad story. Maybe he'll bounce back, who knows? He's yet young enough. Hillis is still young enough to do something if given the chance. Hester and even Leonard are young enough to make noise.

It's sad because any of the above-named "nobodies" are vastly superior to a great many Black runningbacks who are given chance after chance, yet prove nothing but their own mediocrity with each chance they get.

The White guys named above will never be given the chances that Blacks are given.

Another sad aspect of the current Gerhart situation is that racist DWFs and Blacks will use it as "evidence" that White cannot play runningback at the NFL level, which is just ridiculous.

"See, he got his chance!"

Um, no he didn't.

He got a few token, alleged "starts" and was fed the ball a few times, and then not given the ball anymore.

That's sort of like giving Beethoven three minutes to write a symphony while he's got a fever, and then saying he has no talent when he can't do it, and Schlomo Weinstein Rosenberg Goldstein (yeah, exactly, who the f*ck is THAT?) should be declared a superior musician even though his only talent is nagging and complaining and being fat and short.

Who DID get a chance is Geno Smith, who is given Sunday after Sunday after Sunday after Sunday after Sunday to prove his VAST stupidity and incompetence.

But you know what?

Next Sunday, he'll be throwing the ball (and getting pick sixed) again.

Gerhart won't.

That's the difference and DWFs are too racist and stupid to see their own hypocrisy.

Gronk in über beast mode. 3 TD for 46 yards, while swatting away 2 affeletic DBs. Great game by him and NE.

Gronk's domination continues...now with 9 catches, 150 yards, 3 TDs!

Lately, he's looking more like Gronk, circa 2011.

Unfortunately it was Conte on the initial coverage... and surprise surprise, hes out of the game and Brock Vereen is in as FS... Did Conte get hurt?

Yeah, that's my CBS game. Two elite future of the league black quarterbacks fumbling, throwing picks, missing open receivers, and taking sacks...6 to 6 in the 4th quarter. Lol

Yea it's a shame the moron DWFs can't think for themselves and realize that no "revolutionizing of the position" is taking place. All of the offensive schemes (zone option/read option) that were put in place two years ago have been pretty much figured out and once again to anyone with half a brain can see that QBs play the game from in the pocket. It baffles me to read how NFL offenses are changing, they will never be like college offenses no matter how hard the NFL tries to manipulate the rules.

Front page of NFL.com is currently dedicated to praising can newton for leading a field goal drive.

And that's whats wrong with the NFL; Lamar Houston with 2 minutes left in the game, trailing by 20 points, sacks the backup QB, gets up and does some goofy dance/celebration, blowing out his knee.... Why is this idiot being paid millions?

Yes some positives from today like Gronks big game, though I can't not think about the negatives. Hartline, who amassed two 1,000 yards seasons in a row, is now being ignored and will be lucky to get 500 receiving yards on the season. That and the Gerhart situation piss me off. I watch less and less football every year.
