Gronkowski and Parsons Spar Over Brock Purdy Criticism

By now, it seems everyone has made up their minds one way or another about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy. Either you think he’s a very limited player carried by crappy supporting casts and a QB-friendly system, or you think he’s an MVP-caliber player.

In the meantime, it isn’t. Even for superstars like Micah Parsons and future Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski. After Purdy’s brutal performance on Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens, Parsons tweeted, “Under 21 and no tackles or developmental throws! Should tell you all you need to know!” That’s why the 49ers don’t see Purdy as a game changer. Gronkowski regretted the suggestion.

“It’s really weird that he tweeted that there,” Gronkowski told host Kay Adams on Up and Adams. “First, there’s a saying: losers focus on winners and winners focus on winning. And if you want to be a winner, you have to focus on winning. “It’s really, really weird in this case because Micah Parsons is one of the best defensive players in the league. He could win Defensive Player of the Year this year. But more than that, it’s a team game.

It doesn’t matter how good you are as an individual. “And it’s weird that he tweeted after that loss [to the [Miami [Dolphins]] and then tweeted about this team that absolutely blew the Cowboys [42-10 on Oct. 8] when they played them this per year So I think it’s just weird because he’s an outstanding player and he’s doing his thing this year, but you worry about the San Francisco 49ers. Priests fired back soon after.


“A good example of us attacking the person instead of dealing with the subject! Yes, because it’s so strange that a football player talks about football on a website where you can write your thoughts and opinions!” he tweeted. Both have a good point. Purdy and company blew up Dallas.

But Parsons’ attitude toward calling the play remains dignified. Gronkowski seemed to find a middle ground after that. “That was quick, wow,” Gronkowski said of Parsons’ response. “I mean, everyone has an opinion – I have to agree. Everyone has their own channel now with social media, but I still find it weird that you care about the other team. You just have to care about what you can control. , not what the other can control.” the team does. The Brock Purdy debate is here to stay. And it probably won’t go away anytime soon.
