Broncos linebacker is claiming Rob Gronkowski pushes off 98 percent of the time

Does Rob Gronkowksi push off 98 percent of the time? That is what one Denver linebacker feels

What would a Denver Broncos and New England Patriots match be like if there was no trash talking?  Well it has already started. In an interview with Pro Football Talk, Brandon Marshall the teams starting linebacker was asked why Rob Gronkowski was so difficult to cover. His answer was simple, he pushes off.

“I say ’cause he pushes off,” Marshall said, via PFT. “I mean, he pushes off and he gets away with it about 98 percent of the time.”

I cannot agree with this statement, because many of the time he catches a ball in the seam and there is no linebacker around him.  He may push off, but I think Marshall may have bitten off a bigger piece than he can chew with Gronk.
