New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski fired an indefensible zinger at the Denver Broncos in defense of the way they plan on tackling him on Sunday…
It’s already extremely hard to hate Rob Gronkowski, save for the fact that he plays for the New England Patriots.
One of the NFL’s greatest tight ends to ever play the game, Gronkowski is also a pretty darn fun personality off the field, and he hit the Broncos with a shot that cannot be defensed. All you can really do is tip your cap.
The Broncos were discussing this week their strategy to hit Gronkowski at the knees this weekend in the AFC Championship game, and instead of getting mad, Gronk went full on Gronk…
Hate the guy all you want, but there is no better response to the comments the Broncos were making. Obviously the Broncos have to tackle Gronkowski low. He’s a mammoth of a man and cannot be tackled high. You have to hit him low to take him down, but there’s some underlying foul play there when the thought is that the Broncos specifically plan to take him out at the knees.
The comments Gronk are probably just as good for the Broncos, though, as they are for anyone else. This type of locker room material will promote some additional anger on the field, a little more of a chip on your shoulder, as if more of one was even really needed.
Some may consider Gronk’s comments distasteful. If you are looking at this from purely a smack talk point of view, he should rightfully drop the mic. His zinger at the Broncos was incredible, but we’re going to get him back for it on the field.
