Broncos LB Brandon Marshall on why it's so hard to cover Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski: "Because he pushes off."

Well this is just what not to do before you play the Patriots 101. Antagonizing Rob Gronkowski is possibly the dumbest thing an opponent can do. How long until one of them decides to open their mouth about deflategate? Do they want to lose by 50 points? This is the first of many stupid things the Broncos players will say leading up to this game. For some reason I don’t think they realize that the team they are about to face is much different than the one from week 12. With any luck there will be zero news coming out of Patriots headquarters this week. Just an average week of hard work and excellence in Foxborough per usual. The Patriots don’t need any extra motivation for this game but it looks like the Broncos may be dumb enough to give it to them. Gronk is going to be throwing people out of the club left and right on Sunday if this persists. Keep talking Denver it only makes the grave deeper.
Come and get it Marshall….
