FOXBORO — When it comes to mental toughness, for Rob Gronkowski, that extends to Thanksgiving dinner.
The big tight end, who was asked before practice on Wednesday about the value of mental toughness at this stage of the season, said that includes any idea of overindulging when it comes to the holiday meal.
“No. That’s mental toughness right there,” he said with a smile. “Right there, baby, knowing that you have that huge pie in front of you and only eating a little piece, even though you want to eat the whole pie. You definitely have to know what your limit is because I know anyone in this locker room could put down six pounds of food right there. Come in the next day a little sluggish. You have to focus on that, and not do that.”
He added: “We’re not going to eat six pounds of turkey. I’m not going to, even though I want to. If it was offseason, I’d eat the whole pie.”
Gronkowski said his favorite Thanksgiving side dish is stuffing.
“It always goes good with the turkey,” he said. “When someone makes a dry turkey, you need a cup of extra gravy on top of that or something. Stuffing always goes good. You just put the stuffing on top of whatever you’re about to eat. It tastes delicious.”
