Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey had a lot to say about a lot of players this summer. Now, it’s time to back it all up. One of the players Ramsey criticized was Eli Manning, and last week, the Jags went into MetLife Stadium and beat the Giants 20-15. As a whole, Ramsey was solid in that game.
On Sunday, Ramsey and the Jaguars will battle the Patriots in a rematch of last season’s AFC title game. A game in which the Patriots won up in Foxboro. This time around the Patriots will have to travel to Jacksonville.
Ramsey had some interesting things to say about Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski this summer. In an interview with ESPN The Magazine, Ramsey had this to say about Gronkowski:
“I don’t think Gronk’s good.” Registering my involuntary blinking, he course-corrects. “Let me say — I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”
Today, Ramsey talked about Gronkowski. When asked how he feels when people say Gronk is the best ever, Ramsey had this to say:
“He’s good. He’s good, now. We aren’t going to get it twisted,” Ramsey said. “He’s good. But you saying this to me – is it supposed to bring fear to me or something? Alright then. I don’t fear no man, period. He is going to have to come out there and line up on me or however, it goes. He has to play us this year.”
When asked if he would be matched up against Gronk, Ramsey said the following:
“I’m not sure. I am going to go out there and do whatever the coaches ask me to do, to be honest. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I am very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball. Whoever goes against him, I am very confident that they will hold it down and I will do my job and hold it down where I am at.”
Hopefully, Ramsey will get a few snaps against Gronkowski on Sunday.
