Friday night as Julian Edelman was running for the end zone, he landed his food awkwardly and his knee bent in a direction that knees don't usually bend. As he lay on the field he grabbed his knee, stood up and hobbled to the sideline. At that point, I knew the season was over for JE11. And the MRI the following day proved it. Complete torn ACL... He's out for the whole season.

The panic set in for about 7 seconds and then I remembered that this is the New England Patriots; they'll find a way. Sure, Edelman will be missed this season, like Gronk was missed last season; but hey, the Patriots won the Super Bowl without Gronk. We'll be fine.
