Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski Clarifies the Air on His Movie Watching Habits
TAMPA, Fla .– After jokingly telling Peyton and Eli Manning on their ESPN Monday Night Football MegaCast that he “doesn’t watch the movie,” Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski purged the air on Wednesday, saying that, yes, he actually makes him watch a movie and his job isn’t as cushy as he claimed.
âI actually watch tons of movies. Overload of movies. I’ll probably blame [PR director] Nelson [Luis] the low. He asked me eight times to go on the show. I told him, ‘This is not a good idea.’ They always put me in that kind of silly atmosphere and that’s what happened, “Gronkowski said jokingly.” Now Coach [Bruce Arians] threatened me. I don’t have my day as a vet anymore. “
After Arians’ press conference on Wednesday, just before Gronkowski’s start, Arians jokingly told reporters that he was no longer allowed to take days off for veterans after the comments he made. he did.
Gronkowski joked on the show, “I’m just run by guys and if I’m feeling good I feel good.â¦” I actually go to see Tom. [Brady] Because Tom watches like, I don’t know, 40 hours of film a week. I’m like, ‘Tom, who’s covering me this week? What kind of blankets do they make? ‘ I say, ‘That’s why I like to play for you, man. You know everything.'”
Gronkowski also joked that he didn’t train on Friday because it was red zone day and he didn’t need it because he was already “Red Zone Robby G, baby “.
“Believe me, I watch so many movies my girlfriend gets mad at me. She sometimes throws bullshit at me, I watch so many movies,” Gronkowski joked. “Sometimes I come home and she says ‘You’ve been gone all day and now you’re studying, you pulled out your iPad’ and I’m like ‘Yeah, I have to get on with it. I have to learn.'”
Despite Gronkowski’s cheerful and good-natured personality which helped flourish his second career as an artist, he always had a reputation for being a tenacious worker, something which Bucs’ coaching team did. congratulated since arriving last year. His four touchdown passes in the first two games of the season are mostly in the NFL and he’s only missed one target, capturing 12 of 13 passes for 129 yards.
âIt never seems totally easy,â Gronkowski said. âIt really never does. Even when it looks easy, it doesn’t really like, ‘Oh, man, that was easy.’ It really isn’t that there is so much work to be done. [continue] to build that, otherwise the teams will arrest you. “
