“He Has Hands Like Toilet Seats”

December 5th, 2021


We could be watching NFL history today.

The last time the Bucs played the Dixie Chicks — Week 2 at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway — foot-rubbing, car-littering film guru tight end Rob Gronkowski had two touchdowns. So clearly he knows how to succeed against Atlanta.

And if he has another good game today, Gronk could tie an NFL record for tight ends. Last week Gronk had a monster game with over 100-yards receiving. That happened to be the 30th time he did that in his career. Only one other tight end has as many. Hall of Fame TE Tony Gonzales has 31.

So if Gronk breaks 100 yards today, he will tie Gonzales for most by an NFL tight end.

If the Bucs can somehow scheme Gronk into the third level of the Dixie Chicks’ defense, he just might. On a recent episode of his podcast the “GM Shuffle,” former NFL suit Michael Lombardi openly chuckled at how much fun he has watching Gronk truck people.

“His size is such a difference against those teams, I mean those little defensive backs, they can’t tackle the big b@stard,” Lombardi said. “With those toilet seat hands he’s got, those gloves, they look like two toilet seats, he catches the ball, who can tackle him?”

Well, generally, if you say a guy has toilet-like hands that’s not a good thing, is it? But yeah, Gronk has hands about as big as Stevie Ray Vaughn. They are like outfielders’ gloves.

    Gronky’s hands measured 10 3/4 at the combine. Huge

    Please don’t force the ball to Gronk for stats, use him if you need him, last guy we need injured playing a shat team.

    Did you see Brock Bowers yesterday?

    The toilet seats headline made me think of one local sports writer’s last couple of columns.

    Watching him for years, Gronk rarely catches with his body, always with his hands. Always amazed to watch him with the ball

    GA TE , I believe is a freshman……… STUD

  11. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Gronk deserves to have that record on his own,32+.

  12. Defense Rules Says:

    One of the most amazing stats on Gronk IMO is that in 11 seasons (137 games … almost 600 receptions) he’s only fumbled 5 times.

    This is a great read while sitting on the toilet.

    @ DR

    Wow. No wonder Brady has so much trust in Gronk… He knows how to get open, hardly ever drops a pass and rarely fumbles.
