BOSTON (CBS) — It was a Would You Rather Wednesday on The Game of Jones this week, and Rich Keefe posed the million-dollar question to Adam Jones: If you were the Patriots, would you rather have Rob Gronkowski or Odell Beckham Jr.?
After some careful consideration, Jones made his proclamation.
“OK, I would love to see a game-breaking type of receiver on the Patriots like Odell Beckham Jr., but I genuinely think Rob Gronkowski is the biggest matchup nightmare there is in the NFL,” Jones said. “Now I know he comes with injuries and I know that’s always going to be a question mark, but give me an impossible matchp and a guy who can do ridiculous things — which Beckham can. I mean, Beckham is both of those things as well. But at 6-foot-6 with the type of athleticism that Gronkowski has, and on top of it, Gronk seems like a meathead off the field; he is a meathead off the field. But ODB is [a meathead] on the field.
“So give me Gronk,” Jones concluded. “It’s really close and very difficult, but I think Gronk is the most difficult nightmare matchup there is in the NFL. I’ll start with that and figure the rest out.”
For what it’s worth, Gronkowski caught 72 passes for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns in 15 games last year. Beckham caught 96 passes for 1,450 yards and 13 touchdowns, also in 15 games.
What do you all think?
Jones also played ‘Would You Rather?’ regarding Jimmy G. vs. Dak Prescott, a 16-game regular season vs. an 18-game regular season, and the all-important Britney Spears vs. Rihanna question. Listen below:
