Pats' Gronkowski 'ready for anything' after Ramsey's comments

FOXBORO MA.- SEPTEMBER 12 New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski talks with quarterback Tom Brady during practice at Gillette Stadium

FOXBORO MA.- SEPTEMBER 12 New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski talks with quarterback Tom Brady during practice at Gillette Stadium

"You've always got to anticipate, and playing with energy and enthusiasm are all part of the game". "It's a big game this Sunday". In that dissection of Gronkowski's play, the third-year pro talked about Gronkowski wasn't that good, and how his numbers drastically go down when matched up against an elite cornerback. "They were a great team last year and gave us everything we could handle in the championship game, and they're at it again this year. You go back to the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl, I mean, it's like, wow". Football's not a game being nice to each other and all that - like kumbaya ...

"I mean, it's a game of poise certainly, but it's also a game of just cutting it loose, and that's got to be a lot of confidence, a lot of trust in the people that are next to you so you can go be really free of what you're doing to go play a very anticipatory sport".

The Patriots quarterback tends to deliver motivational posts in the leadup to a game, and he did exactly that Thursday night, just a few days prior to New England's Week 2 tilt with the Jacksonville Jaguars. "He's good. But you saying this to me is supposed to bring fear to me?"

Jacksonville planned in the previous meeting to let Ramsey cover Gronk when the tight end lined up wide, outside the hash marks.

A reporter told Ramsey that Gronkowski is considered to perhaps be the best tight end of all time. "And I'm sure he's gonna have opportunities to go against me".


"No, I definitely would; she knows that", Ramsey said and said into the camera with a smile: "Grandma you know that I love you, but ..."

Gronkowski caught only one pass in the title game before getting knocked out with a concussion. When Jalen Ramsey went off on some of the big-name quarterbacks and pass-catchers around the National Football League before the start of the regular season, he said Brady doesn't suck.

Ramsey honestly and entertainingly made headlines last month with his comments in ESPN The Magazine and GQ that were less than complimentary about certain National Football League players. "Grandma might not get up from one of my licks".

So does Ramsey think actually he'll line up across from Gronkowski? The reporter told Ramsey that Wash's reply had been, "He's insane".

"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". "I'm going to go out there and do whatever the coach asks me to do, to be honest". So, it's going to be a great environment for football - 4:30 game, so everyone's going to be watching. I'm very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball.
