Thumbs down One more reason Jimmy Graham is better than Gronkowski

Whether hes apologizing for lending his jersey to a porn star or dancing shirtless hours after losing the Super Bowl, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a tendency to make eyebrow-raising public appearances. And now we have another.

In an appearance at the University of Rhode Island on Thursday night, Gronkowski agreed to play the oh-so-hilarious F, marry, kill game. His choices were Betty White, Rex Ryan and Tim Tebow.

I would F Tebow, to take his virginity, Gronkowski said.

Im guessing Gronkowski would choose to marry Betty White and kill Rex Ryan, but that part wasnt included in the video thats making the rounds.


Gronkowski raises eyebrows again

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Why do we care?

Quotes from GRONK should be a close second to quotes from drunken female Hollywood socialites...

One day, when he finally retires, he'll be one of the former players that are flat broke in five years, calling on the NFL to give him a handout, or sueing the NFL for injuries obtained while playing such a dangerous sport.

That's a bit of a simplistic way of looking at it. Graham has been playing football for a grand total of 3 years while Gronkowski has been playing football most of his life. Yet Jimmy was only slightly behind Gronk in numbers, and he actually broke Kellen Winslow's tight end record first before Gronkowski was thrown a couple bones late in the game to pass Jimmy.

But here's the main point you are missing. The Patriots offense is built around the tight ends, whereas the Saints don't feature anyone. We spread the ball all over the field and it's why we broke records last year. If Drew threw the ball to Jimmy 15 times a game, he would have blown Gronkowski away. Jimmy Graham is a tremendous athlete. Gronk is just a lumberjack, who the league will adjust to much more easily.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

As much as I like Jimmy Graham, I'm a little disappointed in how easily he goes down. You'd think he be crushing those LB's and DB's but he usually goes down on the first hit. I've been re-watching the season so don't try to say it's because they all go for his knees or ankles cause that ain't so. I'd like to see him get more physical with the ball after the catch and dish out some punishment to defenses, then he'd get more YAC and Gronk wouldn't be in the same league.

Keep getting 1000+ yards a season and he can go down as easy as he wants to...
