Rob Gronkowski says coach Bill Belichick makes it easy

”Throughout my years here I’ve seen a lot of negative Greedy Williams Jersey , a lot of positive,” Gronkowski said Tuesday as the Patriots prepared for Saturday night’s divisional playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.

”The reputation that Coach tries to get us to have is just ignore the noise – ignore the noise from the outside and I feel like that’s what myself and a lot of other players have been doing.

”You just gotta ignore the noise and just focus on what we’ve been doing all year and that’s preparing hard, studying our opponent, getting ready, mentally and physically for the big game, so what’s going on on the outside, as a team, as an organization, just gotta keep grinding, keep going, keep doing our job.”

Gronkowski, healthy this season after missing last year’s Super Bowl-winning run, said such ”noise” will ”if anything it’s just going to bring us closer and it’s going to bond us together.”

The report concerned the relationship among team owner Robert Kraft, Belichick and Tom Brady, focusing on Brady’s role in the trading of backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round draft pick.

Earlier Tuesday, Brady reacted strongly to the claim he was involved in moving Garoppolo, who won five straight games for his new team down the stretch of the season.

”I think that’s just such a poor characterization of anything. In 18 years, I’ve never celebrated when someone has been traded, been cut,” Brady said on his weekly appearance on Boston radio station WEEI.

”I would say that’s disappointing to hear that someone would express that, or a writer would express that, because it’s so far from what my beliefs are about my teammates.”

He continued, saying Sione Takitaki Jersey , ”I would never, ever feel that way about when Jimmy got traded, when Jacoby (Brissett) got traded. I’ve kept in touch with all those guys. When Matt Cassel was gone. All these guys I’ve worked with, I felt like I had such a great relationship with all the quarterbacks I’ve worked with. I kept in touch with basically everybody. So to characterize that as a certain way is just completely, completely wrong.”

Gronkowski was asked if Brady is amped up even more than usual.

”I’ve gotten that question many times throughout my career and I’ve said this many times – it’s hard to see him go to another level of intensity because he’s always intense, he’s always preparing hard,” Gronkowski said.

”I’ve just seen him do the same old that he does every week, prepare hard, practice hard and get ready for the game.”

Defensive captain Devin McCourty was asked about the ESPN article.

”I don’t care about it and I think a lot of guys don’t really care about what goes on outside and who writes what and if we stink, if we’re great – it doesn’t matter.

”So, I just think guys are motivated by playing for each other, their families more than an ESPN article.

”I think it’s a great thing for our fans and people outside. I think they enjoy all of that, but I think for us, it’s just going out there and playing for each other.

”An ESPN article doesn’t help us when we go out there and it’s negative-9 degrees. Like you’re not going to be motivated to prove an article wrong. You’re just having fun playing with the guys.”

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks, in his first year with the team, was asked how they keep distractions out of their locker room.

”I think because the guys listen. Coach has been doing this for a while and he knows what the potential distractions can be,” Cooks said.

”I think he does a great job on letting us know what they are and as players we listen to him and being coachable and tune out the noise.”

NOTES: Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, talking with New England reporters via a conference call, was asked what affect the ESPN story might have on the Patriots, said, ”You know what, I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know anything about it. I’m not a social media guy. I don’t know enough Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , I really don’t, to make any comment about something like that.” … Gronkowski, talking about making AP All-Pro for the fourth time, said, ”It’s definitely an honor, a humbling honor, but it means nothing now to tell you the truth, it means nothing. It’s the playoffs now, it’s one-and-done if you lose, so you just keep on preparing, looking forward. … ”I’m just looking forward to this game, man – super excited to be back out there with the team.”

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Just three weeks into the season and the Cincinnati Bengals are already at a crossroads.About the last thing that the struggling team needed was a trip to Lambeau Field on Sunday to face the Green Bay Packers.Injuries that could leave the Packers without several key players may help Cincinnati’s chances of digging out from a 0-2 start.But Green Bay (1-1) is still smarting from a loss at Atlanta , eager to get back on track as an NFC contender.“Our focus is on the uncommon opponent in the Bengals, but we have a lot of work to do ourselves,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.Two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers represents the great equalizer, capable of winning any game regardless of the circumstances.Still, the Packers’ injury report this week resembled an All-Pro roster. Defensive lineman Mike Daniels, receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, along with offensive tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga are all nicked. Edge rusher Nick Perry has a hand injury.At least Green Bay hasn’t shaken up its coaching staff, though.Bill Lazor will make his debut as the Bengals’ offensive coordinator after being promoted from quarterbacks coach to replace the fired Ken Zampese. He was let go after a 13-9 loss to Texans on Thursday night in Week 2, capping a historically bad stretch of offense for the franchise.The Bengals became the first team since the 1939 Eagles to open the season with two home games and fail to score a touchdown. They haven’t reached the end zone in 25 possessions, settling for three field goals for the season.Receiver A.J. Green Austin Seibert Jersey , who has only 10 catches, said after the loss to Houston that the Bengals need to get their playmakers involved more.“You’ve got to rely on those guys that can make big plays for you to turn this thing around,” quarterback Andy Dalton said.Other notes and things to watch for in the first meeting between the teams since 2013:MEDICAL REPORT: Nelson (quad) and Bulaga (ankle) were among the few of the 13 Green Bay players listed on the injury report who were full participants in practice at midweek, seemingly giving them the best chances to play on Sunday.The Packers could be able to withstand being without Nelson and Cobb for a short period because of depth at receiver.But getting Bulaga back is important for a line that is thin in experience behind the starting five.“Well, I mean you’ve got to play around that type of stuff because that’s what comes with the game,” Packers receiver Davante Adams said. “Football is 100 percent chance that you’re going to get hurt at some point, whether or not it’s season-ending, but you’ve got to adapt and you’ve got to fill in.:D TESTED: The Packers represent the first real test for a Bengals defense that has played well against two limited offenses. Dalton had five turnovers against the Ravens, including one on the 2-yard line, but the defense gave up only 20 points.Joe Flacco didn’t complete a pass in the second half of the game, his first since missing all of training camp and the preseason with a bad back. Houston rookie Deshaun Watson threw for only 125 yards and was sacked three times in his first NFL start.IRON MIKE: Daniels’ hip injury could be a problem for the Packers. He has turned into a disruptive force up front in his sixth year, helping outside linebackers Perry and Clay Matthews get off to a good start off the edge. Powered by a nonstop motor, Daniels also helps clog the middle against the run.DALTON’S COMFORT ZONE: Dalton has been under heavy pressure in the first two games, sacked eight times and hit often. His passer rating of 47.2 is last in the NFL.Coach Marvin Lewis has steadfastly supported Dalton, resisting calls to use backup AJ McCarron. One of Lazor’s priorities on Sunday is to get Dalton into a comfort zone early by completing some short passes on the opening drive.“Anytime you get into a rhythm, you feel you can play better and you see things easier. So if that’s his goal, that’s my goal, too. I love to be in a rhythm,” Dalton said.CLAY-MAKER: Matthews is on the verge of setting a milestone, a half-sack behind Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (74) for most in franchise history since 1982. After an injury-filled 2016 season, the nine-year veteran is off to a good start this season with 1 sacks.“Clay has been a class act his whole career,” McCarthy said. “I hate talking like this because he’s got a lot left and this is just a milestone that he’s getting ready to jump over.”——AP Sports Writer Joe Kay in Cincinnati contributed to this story.
