No one is safe from Jalen Ramsey's trash talk.
Not even his grandma.The Jacksonville Jaguars star cornerback and one of the NFL’s most outspoken personalities said Thursday he “definitely would” hit his grandmother if she lined up against him on the football field.”To respect the game Cheap Custom New England Patriots Jerseys , you have to play it fierce,” Ramsey said. “I don’t believe in having friends on the field. I mean, my brother, my dad, my mom, grandma was out there, like it’s on. After the game, we can be cool. It doesn’t matter. That’s how I feel, like, you’ve got to respect the game of football.”Football is not a game meant to be played being nice to each other and all that, like kumbaya. After the game’s over with, that’s cool.”Ramsey wouldn’t really hit his grandmother, would he?”No http://www.newenglandpatriotsteamonline.com/ryan-allen-jersey , I definitely would,” he said. “She knows that. My grandma knows that. I love you, but she knows that.”Ramsey added that granny “might not get up from one of my licks.”Ramsey is a renowned trash-talker and one of the most competitive guys on the team.The Jaguars (1-0) host the New England Patriots (1-0) on Sunday, a rematch of the AFC championship game, and surely will have a lot to say before, during and after the game.Ramsey made headlines last month when he said in a magazine article about Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski “I don’t think Gronk’s good” and added “I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”Gronkowski responded Wednesday , saying “if that’s how he feels, that’s how he feels.”Gronkowski caught only one pass in the title game before getting knocked out with a concussion. Asked Thursday about his comments, Ramsey said he “might be crazy.””I don’t care,” Ramsey added. “He’s good. He’s good, now. We ain’t going to get it twisted. He’s good, but you saying this to me, is this supposed to bring fear to me or something? … I don’t fear no man Authentic Jonathan Jones Jersey , period. So he’s going to have to come out there and line up on me, or however it goes. He’s got to play us this year.”Jacksonville planned in the previous meeting to let Ramsey cover Gronk when the tight end lined up wide, outside the hash marks.Ramsey and defensive coordinator Todd Wash declined to provide details into what could be in store Sunday.”I’m not sure,” Ramsey said. “I’m going to go out there and do whatever the coach asks me to do, to be honest. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I’m very confident in all of my teammates on the defensive side of the ball. Whoever goes against him, I’m very confident they’ll hold it down and I’ll do my job and I’ll hold it down where I’m at.”Preseason week 4 Patriots vs Giants: 6 players to watch during New England’s preseason finale Later today, the New England Patriots will play their fourth and final preseason game of 2018. As usual during the last week of exhibition games, the majority of the Patriots’ starters and roster locks are not expected to play – clearing the way for players on the roster bubble to showcase their skills and value to the team one final time.With that in mind, let’s take a look at six players to keep an eye on tonight:Mike Gillislee: Will he make a final push for a roster spot?After a mostly disappointing 2017 season, Mike Gillislee failed to show consistent progress in his second offseason in the Patriots’ system. As a result, he is currently fighting for his roster life against free agency addition Jeremy Hill – the better of the two running backs this summer. Could a late push by Gillislee make the battle interesting again? It will be hard Womens Rex Burkhead Jersey , but not impossible depending on the ultimate performance.Riley McCarron: Will he win the fourth wide receiver spot?After the release of Kenny Britt and Eric Decker’s retirement, Riley McCarron founds himself on the verge of making New England’s roster as a depth wide receiver and punt returner. However, his spot on the team is not set in stone: the Patriots could still opt to bolster depth elsewhere or bring in outside reinforcements. A good performance tonight could therefore be crucial for the second-year man.Ulrick John: Will he again be the first offensive tackle off the bench?First-round rookie Isaiah Wynn tearing his Achilles opened the door for another offensive tackle to make the team. The battle for this appears to still be on, but offseason acquisition Ulrick John might have the best odds of winning it: during last week’s regular season “dress rehearsal”, he was the first offensive tackle off the bench. It will therefore be interesting to see how his role and performance look like tonight, and whether or not the game against the New York Giants could be an indicator for his future.Vincent Valentine: Will he show his value as a rotational defensive tackle?Having spent all of 2017 on injured reserve, Vincent Valentine had a rather quiet training camp and preseason and is consequently not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man team. A solid outing against New York – like he showed at times during his 2016 rookie season – could ultimately turn out to be crucial when it comes to him making the team as the fifth option at the defensive tackle position.Marquis Flowers: Will he build momentum with roster cuts looming?Like Valentine, Marquis Flowers also was rather quiet over the summer. He received increased playing time last week versus Carolina, but that does not definitely earn him a roster spot as a depth linebacker and special teamer. Flowers will still have to outperform his closest competition – Nicholas Grigsby – in order to make the team. Tonight is his final chance to do that and prove that his solid 2017 season was no fluke.J.C. Jackson: Will he finally live up to the training camp hype?Every training camp has its surprising performers, and this year’s is undrafted rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson. The Maryland product saw plenty of snaps with the starting defense and was active and competitive in team and one-on-one drills. His practice success has not yet led to in-game success, however. Tonight is therefore Jackson’s last chance to show the Patriots and other teams around the league that he is worth a roster spot.Which player or players will you most closely watch during today’s game?
