Gronkowski’s Misfortunes

rob-gronkowski-premiere-ted-01May 30th

Rob Gronkowski has been synonymous with catching touchdowns from Tom Brady. In fact no other player since 2010 has had more touchdown catches. Everything seemed to be going great until 2012 when the Giants faced the New England Patriots in Superbowl 46. Gronkowski was not able to perform up to task because of his ankle. Many skeptics and fans of the Patriots thought that with a little more help from Gronkowski the Patriots may have been in better position to win the game. Luckily for Gronkowski most people have forgotten about his subpar performance in Superbowl 46. However things have not gotten better. Now with four surgeries on his arm and a back operation things are not looking good for Rob Gronkowski to return to form of what he was over a year and a half ago. The big question that came from all of this towards Gronkowski was his work ethic and keeping his body in shape. I myself do not believe that Rob Gronkowski has a problem with keeping in shape or working with his team. The one big area of concern for me though has been Gronkowski’s professionalism towards the NFL and how he conducts himself off the field. Overall Rob Gronkowski is a good person and I am no way questioning his character or ability to do the right thing. However the problem I have is his lack of professionalism and by that I mean what is he seen doing off the football field. He goes to clubs and break dances which I’m not sure are the best thing for ones back. And while this sounds funny I am serious when I’m trying to make the point that he needs to grow up to some degree. Stop with the dancing and woos and ahhs and just act like a man and play the game. As I said I think he is up to par  with putting in the team work and working out.  I just think that Gronk needs to take a step back, realize what is important and become just a little bit more laid back. Maybe these injuries will be a blessing in disguise for the young tight end and it may just teach him a few things.
