GRONK ACTS A FOOL YET AGAIN
For the second year in a row, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has made post super bowl headlines for the wrong reasons. Last year it was a post-super bowl drunken dance that was caught on video just hours after the Patriots loss to the New York Giants. This year, the all-seeing eyes of TMZ once again caught the all pro tight end making news for the wrong reasons. Gronk was seen at a Las Vegas club dancing on a stage with some friends. Gronkowski would channel his inner Jake "The Snake" Roberts and DDT one of his friends on the stage. While applying the DDT, a move that can break a person’s neck if given the wrong way, Gronkowski fell right onto his injured arm, the broken arm which kept Gronk off of the field and may have cost the Patriots a birth in the big game.
Rob Gronkowski may be the best tight end in football. However, moments like this must have the Patriots front office in disbelief. As much as Gronk is a force on the field healthy, off the field moments like this have raised growing concerns in the maturity of this young playmaker. New England has invested a plethora of money into Gronkowski to lock in thier great tight end. The Patriots do not want their return on investment to be millions of hits on TMZ. Gronks health has to be a growing issue as well. For the last two years he was not in good health in the biggest of games, which has resulted in the Patriots winning zero super bowls. The window for this Patriots team is growing smaller, and if Gronk keeps making headlines for the wrong reasons the window
may slam shut in front of our eyes.
