New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is considered one of the best at his position and is a threat on the field when healthy. But the biggest problem here is “Gronk” is very immature off the field and just doesn’t get it. Gronkowski play isn’t ever questioned and at most celebrated but when he’s not playing football he is making news such as TMZ and blogs for his antics.Some of these antics are taking a photo with a porn star wearing his jersey while he is shirtless and another him body slamming a friend after he suffered a broken right arm. I just don’t get it with him. Coach Bill Belichick has stood beside Gronkowski through all of his injuries and off the field embarrassments. But when is it enough already?We all know that in New England, Belichick runs a tight ship and he has no tolerance for stupidity and negative attention on its players and organization. Rob Gronkowski is the total opposite what the New England Patriots organization represents. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a little partying and having a good time but there is a problem with embarrassing yourself and your team by antics and immaturity.Gronkowski is a big TE that can dominate a game and is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady main target. When he isn’t on the field Brady has to go with other options, but you know who he wants on the field for blocking and for the short pass. Gronkowski is so tough and big that he pulls defenders with him as he tries to gain more yards on the catch. Many TE in the NFL don’t have the skill that Gronk possesses.What really pissed off and rubbed Boston natives the wrong way was when the New England Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants in 2012.  Right after the loss Rob Gronkowski was celebrating and dancing up a storm. Many fans just don’t like that kind of activity once you lose a championship. We just hope that the great TE of the league can relax from the partying a little and focus on football and getting back healthy. As we already heard, Gronkowski cast has been removed to heal his left broken bone in his arm. This is a time for him to reflect and get mentally prepared for this upcoming 2013-2014 NFL season and put that six year, $54 million contract extension to work. Being only 23 years old and already a 2-time NFL All-Pro and 2-time NFL Pro Bowler he has a bright future in front of him.
