Conte Chomping At The Bit

September 12th, 2017


One player who just can’t wait to smack someone is Bucs fan favorite Chris Conte.

The Bucs play the Bears to open the season Sunday and it seems one starting defender just cannot wait to blast a Bears offensive player (Mike Glennon?).

Conte took to Twitter last night and in begging with Delta for a return flight to Tampa today, explained why he has to get back to town. Now.

Conte just cannot stand Chicago. It’s not that he hates the Bears — remember, he is a former Bears safety — he hates Bears fans.

Last year, when Conte had a pick-six against the Bears that sparked a five-game winning streak and launched the Bucs into a playoff race, Conte couldn’t contain his glee as he gloated by rubbing his pick-six and the Bucs win into the faces of Bears fans.

Joe hopes Conte is one angry mofo come Sunday. Maybe someone should send Conte deep dish pizzas to remind him of Chicago, or worse, those piles of garbage Chicagoans call hot dogs.

(If Joe wanted to eat half a produce stand, he’d order a friggin’ salad.)

    Sick ’em Chris!

    Champing, not chomping.

    I believe he knows he has to be here to try to keep Ward from taking his job.

    Didn’t Conte storm off after the season finale last year…as if he was done with the Bucs? To his credit…he made some flash plays against the Bears and Chiefs last year. And he looks like John Lynch compared to premium pick Bustin’ Evans.

    A double revenge game! Glennon AND Conte! This is why this game will be the national 1pm game on Fox.

    How can you not like a Chicago dog? I guess you have a simple palate. All of those items in a Chicago dog provide as close to a symphony as you can get for a hot dog. 🙂

    Conte vs Glennon – This will be fun!

    Okay Joe I will bite!! I agree, sauerkraut and/or hot onions belong on a hot dog not a salad!!

    Ward isn’t going to replace Conte. Hopefully eventually J. Evans does. It will be Ward down low and Conte up high. I have a feeling Conte will have a big year, along with a lot of our other defensive starters.

    Oh, if you want to refer to our rookie FS as “Bustin Evans”, what do you call the 33rd pick of the 2016 draft made by the routinely glorified GM of the Titans, Jon Robinson, who had a total of 5 tackles last year and still has a jacked up foot. I thought Kevin Dodd was a bad pick at the time. Knee injury in college, one year wonder, 24 years old when drafted. Didn’t dress out against the Raiders.
