Rob Gronkowski: 'Everyone on the team is the man'

Monday February 2nd, 2015

After defeating the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski praised New England's team effort.

"Everyone on the team's the man," Gronkowski said.

Gronkowski caught six passes for 68 yards, hauling in a 22-yard touchdown in the second quarter to give the Patriots a 14-7 lead.

"They're very good," Gronkowski said of the Seahawks' defense. "We just went out there and played our game and we played very well."

Gronkowski's post-game comments were relatively calm, but his locker room celebrations were a little more entertaining.
