Pete Carroll With a Smooth Save for the Seahawks

The Seahawks head coach stepped in front of the Gronk train to grind it to a halt.

Seattle Seahawks defensive back Jeremy Lane had some pretty crazy things to say about Rob Gronkowski:

"I actually don't think he's that good," Lane declared. "He's OK."

Word made its way back to the Patriots All Pro tight end and he had the perfect response:

Of course, he followed that up with plenty of compliments:

"I just keep doing what I’ve got to do." Gronkowski said. "I’ve just got to keep working hard at practice, keep bringing it at practice, keep preparing. Just keep getting ready, because it’€™s not just one player on their defense, there’€™s 11 guys out there at the same time. It’€™s not just 11, they’ve got the backups, too. So I’ve got to prepare for their whole defense, no doubt about that.

"I’ve got much respect for the Seattle Seahawks throughout their whole team. Just got to keep working hard and practicing and getting ready for the game. Bring it out there on the field."

When Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was asked about the comments, he had the perfect response:

This was an incredible volley between the two teams. I'm excited for the Super Bowl week to begin.
