Many think Rob Gronkowski is a dummy. Many look at him and feel he is just a goof ball kid that has fun and is careless, but the kid is a lot smarter than he looks. Jalen Ramsey threw some heavy shade Gronk’s way last month when he told ESPN’s Mina Kimes:
“I don’t think Gronk’s good. Let me say — I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”
“Any time Gronk has been matched up with a corner, he’s had a very bad game — and that corner has had a very good game.”
Today the Patriots tight end had the chance to respond and talk trash and Gronk took the high road.
“If that’s how he feels, that’s how he feels,” Gronkowski told reporters. “It’s a big game this Sunday. I’m sure I’m going to have opportunities to go versus him. I’m sure he’s going to have opportunities to go versus me. I’m just preparing like I always prepare. I just got to do my job out on the field and just worry about that.”
On Wednesday’s edition of NFL Total Access Gronkowski told the reporters, “The game isn’t won during the week.”
“Just talking trash all week, I mean, it’s really not my focus. It’s really not this team’s focus,” Gronkowski added. “Being here throughout the nine years, being under coach Belichick’s wing throughout the years, learning from him, learning from the other veteran players here, we really don’t get into talks like that.
“I feel like that talking right there, going out preparing and showing what we can do Sunday is louder than just talking trash all week. It makes it fun, though.”
This match-up will be fun. I would not be shocked if Gronk goes off.
