Patriots | Should Tom Brady talk to Rob Gronkowski?

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 06:27:54 -0800

Former NFL LB and current analyst Willie McGinest said New England Patriots QB Tom Brady should sit down and talk with TE Rob Gronkowski about his behavior off the field. "The only guy on that offense that could probably say anything is Tom," McGinest said. "He has the years in. Or maybe Wes (Welker). It has to be guys (Gronkowski is) around all the time. I don't really know the dynamics of that team."

Cardinals | Ken Whisenhunt defends quarterbacks

Thu, 26 Jul 2012 06:36:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt took issue with comments made by former NFL player Willie McGinest that players prefer QB John Skelton over QB Kevin Kolb. "I have no perception whatever that that's going on," Whisenhunt said. "From what I've seen, standing in the huddle, which I don't believe he was in the huddle, the team's responded to both guys and feel like both guys can be successful for them. So I don't put a whole lot of stock into that. If he's willing to say who it was or what they're talking about and what context, maybe it would be worthy of commenting."

Patriots | Analyst critical of Wes Welker

Wed, 25 Apr 2012 05:50:07 -0700

NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest is critical of New England Patriots franchise free-agent WR Wes Welker's decision to potentially skip the team's mandatory June minicamp. "I just don't like the diva attitude," McGinest said. "Let's keep it real. Prior to the Patriots, this is a guy who played three years, had 96 receptions, never had a 1,000-yard season ... This $9 million-plus that they're offering is half of his last contract. That's a lot of money. Let's not forget that they signed Brandon Lloyd, they signed (WR Anthony Gonzalez), they signed (WR Deion) Branch back, they got the two tight ends; they have weapons on that offense. So look, Wes, it's time to take off the leopard-printed cowboy boots, get off the party tour and get back to work."
