Rob Gronkowski trolls teammate Tom Brady over his lack of trash talking skills

Tom Brady is a legendary footballer. There's absolutely no debating that. 

Since entering the NFL in 2000, he's gone on to guide the New England Patriots to five Super Bowl wins.


In four of those five games, Brady was named MVP. In three separate seasons, he's also been named the league's most valuable player. 

Even at the age of 41, he still strikes fear into opposing defenses - and don't look past the Pats for another post-season run in 2018. 

So as we said, he's a great footballer - both mentally and physically. But, according to teammate Rob Gronkowski, there's one part of Tom's game that's missing. 


At a press conference earlier this week, ahead of New England's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Gronk was asked to rate Brady's trash-talking skills. 

Clearly, he doesn't think highly of them and simply answered the question "One out of 10".

Ouch. Now, plenty of people love to troll TB12, but it's not usually one of his teammates. Although, Gronkowski did go on to explain why Brady's so bad at trash talking.

"He's focused always. He gets going sometimes out on the field, I've seen him," the tight end said, per The Score.

"Depending on the game, depending on the situation, where he is compared to the defensive players. He hands off the ball, he's 10 yards back, so it's not like he can really get after it.

"I would say usually on his QB sneaks is when he talks trash if he does."

He's so bad at it because he doesn't have the chance to talk much

There we have it. The star quarterback is so bad at trash talking because he barely has the opportunity to do it.


Of course, on Sunday, when they visit EverBank Field, Brady and co. will be walking into the house of one of the NFL's best trash talkers. 

That being Jalen Ramsey. The cornerback has fired shots at just about everyone in the league - and recently, had some choice words about Gronk himself.

The Jags defender revealed to ESPN in an interview that he doesn't rate number 87 very highly.

"I don't think Gronk's good. Let me say - I don't think Gronk is as great as people think he is. 

"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." 

Ramsey doesn't rate Rob Gronkowski highly

Those words obviously inspired a journalist to ask Gronkowski about his QBs trash talking skills - and the TE clearly thinks that it's one part of Ramsey's game that is better than Brady's. 

But, football isn't won on trash talk, and Gronk will be hoping to silence Ramsey and the Jags on Sunday.
