We’ve been reading a lot about Jalen Ramsey and his trash talk, and this time the New England Patriots will have to find a way and deal with it.
No team is ever safe from Ramsey’s trash talk, and we all remember how he took aim at Rob Gronkowski, saying he isn’t really as good as he’s presented. “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 told ESPN’s Mina Kimes.
When asked about the comments Ramsey made, Gronk just put his focus on the Houston Texans. He will have the opportunity to challenge Ramsey and his Jaguars this Sunday. Are we waiting for a new war of words?
Even Patriots head coach Bill Belichick talked about it. “Well, look, we know when the game starts and we’ll be ready to go. I’m sure they will, too. That’s when we’ll see what happens. Right now we’re focused on our preparation for the game. I have a lot of respect for Coach [Doug] Marrone and their coaching staff, their players, their team. Hopefully, we’ll be ready to go,” the head coach said.
Belichick knows that Ramsey poses quite a challenge for his offense, same as the entire Jaguars defensive unit. “Yeah, he’s done a good job. He’s on a good defense. They have a lot of good players and he’s one of them. They’ve got a lot of them,” he said.
“Obviously, we’re playing a really good team this week. This team has a lot of talent. They’re very well-coached. They’re a tough, physical team. This will be a big challenge for us down there on the road. Defensively, all of the numbers kind of speak for themselves. They pretty much led the league in every category last year. They’re all back and they’re all good and they have a lot of depth. They had another return for a touchdown last week against the Giants. It’s a very disruptive group. We’ve got to do a good job of taking care of the ball and try to create some positive plays,” the head coach said of the game against the Jaguars.
