Rob Gronkowski on Broncos: 'Whole team is good at giving low blows'
The Broncos have been doing a lot of talking ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots. And on Tuesday, Rob Gronkowski responded.
The Broncos have been doing a lot of talking ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots. Defensive end Antonio Smith said he doesn't disagree that Tom Brady is a crybaby, while teammate Malik Jackson went with "whiner."
We haven't heard from Brady, who rarely responds to criticism -- and if he does, it's with words so sanitized they're rendered meaningless. But Gronkowski took to Twitter to share this thoughts on the Broncos after this warning from a Patriots fan:
Gronk, for his part, seems unconcerned:
Heard their whole team is good at giving low blows https://t.co/nDOsOwkvki— Rob Gronkowski (@RobGronkowski) January 19, 2016
We're not sure if Gronk is responding to Smith, Jackson and Marshall, but he's almost certainly responding to Broncos cornerback Chris Harris, who was asked earlier in the day how to tackle the tight end.
"You gotta hit him low, man — hit him in his knees. That's the best chance you have of hitting him,” Harris told ESPN. “You’ve got to attack him like any other man. You just come take his legs out or hold on and wait for everybody, wait for the gang to come on and gang tackle him."
Not surprisingly, Pats supporters loved Gronk's comeback.
