The talking from the Denver Broncos is still going strong. The latest idiot to open his mouth is cornerback Chris Harris Jr., who said the only way to bring Rob Gronkowski down is to hit him low.
Per Cork Gaines of Business Insider:
"You gotta hit him low, man — hit him in his knees," Harris said. "That's the best chance you have of hitting him."
"You gotta take his legs out or hold on and wait for everybody, wait for the gang to come on and gang tackle him," Harris added.
Gaines says that this is something that should scare the Patriots and the NFL, and he's got great points. Gaines pointed out that because defenders are being flagged for hitting receivers above the shoulders, one of the best ways to take them out is to go low. We know how hard it is to bring Gronk down from above the waist, so this obviously applies to him.
With the way the Broncos keep talking, it wouldn't be a shock if they aimed for Gronk's knees every time he catches a pass. We've seen what this team is like when it doesn't have Gronkowski, so losing him in a game of this magnitude obviously can't happen.
But, through it all, Gronk had a retort that only he could make.
Heard their whole team is good at giving low blows 😜🏈 https://t.co/nDOsOwkvki— Rob Gronkowski (@RobGronkowski) January 19, 2016
Never change, Gronk.
