Vintage Gronk: Rob Gronkowski says he never watches film, asks Tom Brady who will guard him
Rob Gronkowski was physically created in a laboratory and his personality was created by Hollywood screenwriters.
Gronkowski told a story about the ManningCast during the Green Bay Packers-Detroit Lions game Monday night, which Gronk, the character, perfectly sums up.
Eli Manning asked Gronkowski, who was a special guest on the alternate show, what he was looking for when he watched movies. He was awaiting an answer on what cover an opponent will present and what routes Gronkowski can run to beat them.
Take it away, Gronk.
"First of all, my team-mate Cam Brate asked me the other day, 'Rob, I have a serious question: do you ever watch movies?'" Said Gronkowski. "And I said, 'No, I don't.' I only run from guys when I feel good, I feel good. ' So I don't watch a movie. I watch movies when the team shows it. "
"Keep it simple," said Eli.
Gronkowski added that he would "occasionally" watch games on television. Any soccer player or coach knows that this has nothing to do with the movie players the week before a game when they can see the entire field and study the coverage they face.
If you thought Gronk was kidding - it was certainly funny, and you never really know about Gronkowski - he added that he pretty much asks Tom Brady to do his homework for him before the test.
"I go to Tom because I know Tom watches 40 hours of film a week like I don't know and I ask, 'Tom, who's covering me and what kind of coverage are they doing?" "Gronkowski said.
At that point, Gronk's story was cut short because his dog was barking. Then he brought the dog on camera to show Peyton and Eli Manning. Naturally.
It's pretty baffling that arguably the greatest tight end of all time says he never watches a movie (unless it's in a team meeting), Brady asks every week who will be guarding him and still passes the exam.
But that's Gronk. He's still unique.
