Gronk on Ramsey's comments: Talking trash 'not my focus'

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

Curran, one of the most plugged-in reporters in the Patriots organization, and he'll tell you that the scenario isn't as insane as it sounds.

Last month, the Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro cornerback told ESPN that he thought Gronk was overrated. He then clarified: "Let me say - I don't think Gronk is as great as people think he is".

"Yes, he was just yapping at me the whole time and that's why I took him and threw him out of the club", Gronkowski said after the game.

Before the Patriots game, he explains, he had the Jaguars' analytics staffers pull some numbers for him. Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Gronkowski himself have all been asked about Ramsey's football analysis, and it figures to get mentioned quite a bit on the broadcast when the Patriots and Jaguars meet on Sunday afternoon.

Asked about Ramsey's math, Gronkowski, paused, processed and said. Depending on the game, depending on the situation, where he is compared to the defensive players. "So he's going to have to come out there and line up on me". I'm just preparing like I always prepare. You just got to keep your cool, and I don't see any benefit to getting a 15-yard penalty out on the field because you lose your cool.

"I might be insane, I don't care", the cornerback said of those people who might think he's insane to suggest that Gronkowski is overrated. "We ain't gonna get it twisted", Ramsey told reporters.

"If it's one-on-one with him, if it's one-on-one versus anybody else, I've got to bring my game". "So he's going to have to come out there and line up on me".

But Neuteboom of ABN Amro said much more was needed for Turkey to turn around "the negative spiral" the economy is in. The lira rallied 3 percent to 6.18 against the dollar, having traded at 6.4176 beforehand.

Last season, Jalen Ramsey tried to rouse his troops by undercutting Gronkowski's reputation. "Whoever goes against him, I'm very confident that they'll hold it down, and I'll do my job and I'll hold it down where I'm at".

Ramsey's teammates said his often-biting words are what make Ramsey the player he is. "Obviously, there's something out there he saw on film and stuff that I can probably get better at football in some certain categories".

"I don't believe in having friends on the field", Ramsey said Thursday. "I mean, he's a great player", He added of Ramsey.

"Look, we know when the game starts and we'll be ready to go". "She knows that. Grandma, know that I love you, but she knows that".

"Football is not a game meant to be played being nice to each other and all that, like Kumbaya. After the game is over with all of that is cool".

"I definitely would", Ramsey said. She know that. My grandma knows that.

"It motivates you, hearing that", Gronkowski said. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and said he was "doing all I can do" to be back in uniform for Sunday's game.
