I wrote for the Slate/Deadspin roundtable again this week about why the Rob Gronkowski injury doesn't qualify as "karmic justice." If you are on the extra point team, you are on the extra point team, period, and a lot of top tight ends (like Jimmy Graham and Jason Witten) are on the extra point team. As for "running up the score," the Patriots are no different from any other team. Leaving in your starters that late may not be wise, but it is neither abnormal nor evil.
