Enter the arena.
Oh my god.
Tom Brady has been called the GOAT for years now. G O A T standing for the “Greatest Of All Time”. Tom is the greatest Patriot of all time. Tom is the greatest Quarterback of all time. Hell, Tom is the greatest football player of all time. Well, add another bullet to the resume. Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. is now the greatest Instagram user of all time. Move over Kim Kardashian, TB12 is coming for the crown. And this hype video just proves it.
As Patriot’s fans, we usually aren’t in a spot like this. It’s Week 2, the Patriots are on the road in a big game. Sports media in this city are always complaining about the tomato cans the Patriots play. “Wake me up when the Playoffs start”. But this game has some juice. AFC Championship rematch. The best Defense in the league vs the reigning MVP. This game by itself should be a huge draw, but Jalen Ramsey only has made it more interesting.
Almost a month ago, the Jaguars Cornerback listed out how he felt about all the Quarterbacks in the NFL that he has gone up against in an interview with GQ. When Ramsey got to Brady, he said Tom “doesn’t suck”.
But Ramsey wasn’t done talking trash about Patriot stars.
SOURCE– When I mention that the Patriots still have All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski, he makes a face. “I don’t think Gronk’s good.” Registering my involuntary blinking, he course-corrects. “Let me say — I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.” Before the Patriots game, he explains, he had the Jaguars’ analytics staffers pull some numbers for him. “Any time Gronk has been matched up with a corner, he’s had a very bad game — and that corner has had a very good game.” (Gronk has performed much better when lined up in the slot than he has on the perimeter, where he’s more likely to encounter elite corners — his catch rate drops from 71 percent to 56 percent, which is lower than that of the average NFL tight end.)
I ask him what Gronk did in the AFC championship. “Literally nothing. He may have had, like, one catch,” he says. (Ramsey is correct, though Gronkowski left before halftime because of a concussion.)
Ramsey now has said that Brady doesn’t suck and Gronk is not as great as people think he is.
Buddy, Jalen Ramsey is in for a rude awakening this Sunday. I pray, PRAY, that Ramsey follows Gronk all game long. Gronk will take Ramsey and throw him out of the club like he did to that Colts player a couple years ago.
So talk your talk Jalen, let’s see how you back it up. Because if I am seeing this correctly, you also talked trash about Eli Manning and then Odel Beckham put up *squints at paper* 11 receptions for 111 yards. Hmm.
To no one’s surprise, Brady and Gronk don’t seem to care much about Ramsey’s remarks.
Ramsey is even backpedaling on his own comments. Not great!
So now he’s good? 🤔 Ok then.
And to top it off, someone looks like they bit off too much to eat.
“Guys I was just joshin around! Just a goof goofing! Why does y’all take everything so seriously?!”
Good luck Jalen! You’re gunna need it.
