Rob Gronkowski deserves suspension for dangerous cheap shot of Bills rookie

If you were to build a tight end in an NFL workshop, it would be Rob Gronkowski. He plays hard all the time. He masters every inch of a complex New England Patriots offense. He’s gifted and loved by teammates. And in what probably bonds him most to devoted football fans is his emotions are often indistinguishable from the fabric of the game he plays. If he occasionally (or often) sounds like a teenage jock meathead who never had to grow up that’s because he occasionally is a teenage jock meathead who never had to grow up.

But even the most well-intended emotions in football can undercut a player. Gronkowski fell victim to that Sunday, when he delivered one of the dirtiest hits we’ve seen in the NFL this season. It was a moment that screamed for a suspension and significant fine, especially if the NFL is serious about protecting the health and safety of players. Not because Gronkowski has a reputation for being dirty –he doesn’t – but because even an ideal player with a fairly clean record can’t be allowed to make the foolish decision the Patriots tight end made Sunday.

It was a 265-pound flying elbow, to the back of the head of Buffalo Bills
