Rob Gronkowski has been nothing if not himself throughout his NFL career. Gronk’s personality is almost as well-known as his on-field abilities. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end had a quintessential “Gronk” moment when he admitted he’s not much of a movie watcher during an appearance on the ESPN2 Manning brothers megacast during Monday Night Football tonight. Gronkowski joked that he doesn’t watch any film on his own when preparing for an opponent, instead asking Tom Brady who he’ll be facing this week and “running by guys.” ”

In the year 2021, it’s highly unusual for a player to basically admit they don’t do any individual film study, assuming Gronk is serious. Of course, the remark sounded like a typical Gronk remark.
Gronk saying he never watches any film, but asks Brady who’ll be guarding him because he know Tom watches film, is time capsule Gronk. That is so damn perfect.

Gronk says that fellow Bucs TE Cam Brate recently asked him: “Do you ever watch film?”
Gronk: “No I don’t. I just run by guys. If I’m feeling good, I’m feeling good.”
It seems to work pretty well.

Gronk said Cameron Brate asked him recently if he ever watched film and he said no. He says he just watches when the team watches it. Says he just asks Tom who will be covering him and what coverages they play. Then his dog showed up.

Gronk should keep doing whatever he’s doing to put up those numbers.
