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

Offensive coordinator Josh Mc Daniels and tight end Rob Gronkowski bump fists as the Patriots warmed up for practice. Wednesday

The Jaguars cornerback did put Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the "does not suck" category though he's been less impressed with tight end Rob Gronkowski.

"Might be insane", Ramsey said.

Ramsey said recently that he thinks the biggest reason for the Jaguars losing that game was that they became too conservative.

But this afternoon was back to his outspoken self, lambasting any opposition who flex on his turf, including the virtually "unguardable" Gronkowski. He's going to have to come out there and line up on me, or however it goes. Or however it goes.

"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".

Nonetheless, this adds yet another element to the game with Ramsey being at the forefront of attention, especially when he draws the coverage assignment on Gronkowski when the two teams take the field later this week.

While you certainly don't have to possess Belichick's level of football genius to understand the engineering of the play - it's a fairly simple concept, and one that both Brady and Gronk have mastered - it's always a bit more thrilling to hear coach talk about it. History suggests that Ramsey, the linebacker corps, and the rest of the secondary were the victors in that matchup, even though the Patriots were the better team overall.

More than 1.7 million people were warned to evacuate and get out of the way of the "life-threatening" storm's path. Susan Faulkenberry Panousis said she has stayed on Bald Head during prior hurricanes, but not this time.

Gronkowski caught only one pass in the title game before getting knocked out with a concussion.

This week's Jags-Pats matchup takes place on Sunday at 4:25 pm. "You gotta play it - I don't believe in having friends on the field", he said.

"I don't live my life with regrets, man. Things happen". "If my brother, my dad, my mom or my grandma was out there, it's on". It's not a game meant to be played being nice to each other and all that kumbaya.

"It's going to be an emotional environment", Brady said. "But after the game's over with, that's cool".

"I mean, if that's how he feels, that's how he feels", Gronk said Wednesday, via quotes distributed by the team. But that's how I feel you have to respect the game of football. She knows that. My grandma knows that.

So Gronkowski should expect the grandma treatment on Sunday - if Ramsey lines up on him.

"I love the competitiveness". I'm very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball. "Whoever goes against him, I'm very confident they'll hold it down and I'll do my job and I'll hold it down where I'm at".
