-- Rob Gronkowski was back in his role as an NFL analyst on FOX NFL Sunday this week and he compared former coach Bill Belichick to The Grinch. 

Last week Gronkowski compared Julian Edelman to a squirrel, so this week Peter Schrager asked him what comparison he would use for Belichick. 

“Oh man. On a daily basis? The Grinch,” Gronkowski said. “Always trying to take away the fun sometimes because it’s all business. And then here I come in all jolly, I’m Santa Claus. Ho, ho, ho.”

He also said if he could play for any other coach in the NFL it would be Kliff Kingsbury. 

And Gronkowski told viewers to go to a Bills tailgate because “you’ll have a blast.”

-- Tyler Seguin tweeted his appreciation on Sunday night to those who reached out to him after his Dallas home was destroyed by a tornado. 

It appears the roof was torn off of the home during the storm, which included at least one tornado, as confirmed by the National Weather Service.

The home is currently for sale and Seguin was no longer living there at the time of the tornado. The former Bruin was also on the road with the Stars in Philadelphia but returned to Dallas for Monday night’s game. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We'll have to see. Obviously it has been discussed in our union. We'll just have to see. There are a lot of things that are going to factor into whether or not that is a real possibility. We'll see how it goes."  -- Matthew Slater, on discussions about expanding the NFL season to 17 games
