Antonio Bryant Uses P-Word

June 15th, 2019

Bold prediction.

Oh yeah, he did.

One of the most electric wide receivers that ever played for the Bucs, Antonio Bryant, still bleeds pewter and red. Bryant’s twitter profile is a photo of him in a Tampa Bay uniform and he often twitters about the Bucs.

Bryant did it. He actually used the p-word. He really did go there.

Bryant is predicting a Bucs playoff appearance this season. Yes, really. Bryant twittered earlier this week that the Bucs will actually play a meaningful game in January, the first time since before Bryant himself joined the Bucs in 2008.

The only way Joe can see the Bucs making a playoff run is if two quarterbacks struggle within the division. That would be Matty Ice and pouty Cam Newton.

Joe doesn’t expect Matty Ice with the Dixie Chicks to struggle. Former Bucs coach Dirk Koetter is the coordinator there and the two have worked well together. Matty Ice should have no problems re-learning an offense, though it’s a possibility.

With Newton, he’s coming off shoulder surgery and Joe learned Thursday the Stinking Panthers are trying to change his throwing motion. That doesn’t sound all that promising.

A lot would have to go just right for the Bucs to make the playoffs this year. A lot. That’s too steep for Joe to drop cash on.

You know, like what this drunk did.

    Joe, the only way Joe can see the Bucs in the playoffs this year is if the Bucs are in the playoffs this year. You are allergic the the optimistic thought of Arians et al actually being a helluva group of coaches and our players being damned talented…all 50% of the churned roster.

    Well kudos to Bryant.

    And kudos to our coaching staff and current roster…the ones who haven’t already relegated us to the cellar like JBF has. Joe has done no such thing. If the Bucs can claw their way to 3-3 at the bye, then Joe will believe the team has turned a corner and has shaken a lot of past demons. Would Joe bet on that 3-3 mark happening, no, at least not now. That doesn’t mean Joe isn’t cheering for the team has much as you are. –Joe

  2. NOSBOS Says:

    Pouty can and his bum shoulder sucks and matty is overrated.

  3. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Yeah Joe, according to Todd we have great talent despite no JPP, our best CB, and #2 and #3 recievers being waived and being replaced by busts, rookies, or not at all. The Bucs have gone 5-11 the last two years but that was all coaching and now we are going to the Super Bowl Joe. Why do you have to be so negative? Could it be because you have EYES????

  4. NOSBOS Says:

    Todd,Joe is a journalist. They are groomed to preach the negative and the all is doomed concepts. Completely ridiculous. Joe is a fan, who happens to be a journalist/writer. All the things Joe talks about here are the same stuff Joe used to talk about in sports bars, at tailgates and in the stadium. Joe’s a huge cheerleader when Joe feels moved to cheer. –Joe The fact that the Bucs now have the players and coaching staff in place that will propel the Bucs into the tournament can not sit well with Joe. Why,because a winning Buccaneers team will not be good for his business. Actually, winning is far better for Joe’s business than losing. More available content, more players talking, more buzz around town, fans moved to read 4 posts per day instead of 2, for example. Businesses more eager to attach themselves to anything Bucs. More energy for postgame content. More interest in offseason happenings. You think more fans are pumped up to read a mountain of Bucs content after three straight losses or three straight wins? Hard to believe anyone wouldn’t get that. –Joe

    Joe- Ryan didn’t struggle last year but they still did not make the playoffs. I don’t think it matters if they don’t struggle overall, but that our defense makes them struggle against us.

  6. m0j0 Says:

    You never know how things are going to go in the NFL. Teams turn around all the time. Anything is possible, especially with a good offense and good coaching on both sides of the ball.

  7. Cannon Says:

    If we don’t have the worst defense in the NFL, the we MIGHT have a shot at reaching the playoffs.

  8. Beligerentbuc Says:

    It’s all on the D and the run game.
    A middle of the pack D and a middle of the pack run game and we are on the dance floor. The two areas where we were the worst in the league. 32/32

    Oh, and a kicker who doesn’t miss extra points and makes a 50yarder 3/4th of the time.

    Jameis can sling it…30-35/game. No more 50-60 throws/game. Keep him from doing too much.

  9. NOSBOS Says:

    “Despite no JPP,our best CB gone and 2 and 3 WR waived”. That will definitely go down as the dumbest comment of the day.

  10. Todd Says:


    “If the Bucs can claw their way to 3-3 at the bye, then Joe will believe the team has turned a corner and has shaken a lot of past demons.”

    Well thanks be to Jesus then…especially since we’re opening 7-0!

  11. NOSBOS Says:

    So you like grimes better than Davis,Dean and Bunting??? Wow. And I assume you prefer rudy and djax over Godwin and Perriman??? Again wow. Rudy worked in klueless system,not nearly enough speed in him for BA’s. As for djax,do you really think he wanted to be somewhere where the coach will actually get in his @$$??? I think not.

  12. NOSBOS Says:

    You can mod this s#%* all you like. But you and I know BA represents tough times for yo @$$. ??? “Tough times?” Arians is more candid than Dirk Koetter (hard to find) and he’s media-friendly and will have national interest if the team gets over the hump. Plus, he’s not a paranoid, muzzle players and assistants kind of guy. Arians is interesting. Half the head coaches in the league are not, at least in Joe’s opinion.–Joe

  13. NOSBOS Says:

    Man whatever,all that whack s$&@ you spoke in my above post. What I strike a nerve. Homie this society doesn’t vibe off positivities. People are addicted to the news because of the negative garbage it talks about everyday. Your site no different. I’m really looking forward to seeing how you spin this site once the Bucs become a consistent winning product. Won’t have to wait much longer.
    Really silly and misguided. Joe’s highest traffic month every was December 2016. Monday traffic on this site after a win is about 15% higher than on a Monday after a loss. Fans are more interested and excited when they believe the team is good. That has nothing to do with the Bucs. That’s every team. Joe has talked to other site owners in other markets about the same thing. –Joe

  14. Jim Says:

    I do think the play-offs should be the benchmark. Not 8-8, 9-7…

  15. NOSBOS Says:

    It’s the fear you pen types love to play on. It’s hard to believe for so many people who are jaded by the rest of the media. But Joe really just calls it the way Joe sees it. Thankfully, it works. If it doesn’t one day, then Joe will keep doing this for fun and get a job.–Joe. I ain’t mad at ya hustle I just loathe people that push fear on others. Ive come realize not everyone is as defiant as me. See that ish don’t work on me,that’s why I come to convince others not allow those tricks to be exercised on them.

  16. NOSBOS Says:

    Lastly BA ain’t here for the long haul,everyone knows that. What’s “long haul” in the NFL? Around here it’s three years. And Joe would bet he’s here that long. If he leaves a winner, then Team Glazer will have to like the head coach, not Arians. Whoever that guy is on staff may be gone by then to a new team.–Joe Phsst,talking bout future sound bites. BA here to get the ship quickly in order and hand the reigns over to one of his chosen men. He already his replacement is already in the building.

  17. Bobby M. Says:

    If Winston keeps his turnovers to 10 or less…..we make the playoffs. 15 or less….fighting for a wild card, but may fall short. More then 15….probably looking at 6-7 win season, basically new staff, same results.

  18. Defense Rules Says:

    Todd & NOSBOS … I don’t get it. Why are you guys picking on Joe? The article’s about Antonio Bryant saying that we’ll make the playoffs. Joe piggy-backed on that … just like all of us piggy-back on each other’s comments. And yet you guys pummel Joe without ever mentioning Bryant? Cut him some slack.

    Actually Joe, I don’t have a great expectation of making the playoffs either this year, but I’d love to be pleasantly surprised … and HOPE to be. Unless something unforseen happens in New Orleans, the Saints SHOULD be the odds-on favorites to win the NFC South again this year. Even IF the Panthers, Falcons & Bucs all had even odds of coming in second in the division, that’s no guarantee at all that ANY OF US would get a wild-card slot this year.

    LOTS of competition for the 2 WC slots in the NFC. My GUESS at this point is that we’d have to beat out 2 of these 3 teams to earn a WC slot: Eagles, Vikings & Seahawks (assuming that the Cowboys, Bears & Rams win their divisions once again … if not, we’d have to beat out one of them). My other GUESS is that 9-7 won’t cut it this year; it’ll have to be 10-6 or better for a WC spot. It’s doable, but we’ve still got a long road to travel to build a TEAM that can do it.

  19. Couch Fan Says:

    Wow. What a stupid take this is. You are predicting the success of the Bucs based on 2 players who dont even play on the Bucs? I love coming to this site but sometimes these articles have the most idiotic takes.

  20. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Bucs making the playoffs will depend on:

    Establish a running game
    Minimize turnovers
    Defense will be better
    Special teams that don’t suck

    It will Not depend on another team’s qb having a bad year

  21. NOSBOS Says:

    Ain’t nobody picking on Joe DR. Read Couch post bro.

  22. Dapostman Says:


    Too much logic in your post. This site is filled with emotional types.

  23. NOSBOS Says:

    And we don’t preoccupy our thoughts on what other media says,they don’t follow the Bucs for a living he does. A new staff comes inn one with a history of producing winning football but we won’t be ish un less other QBs in the division perform poorly. Two QBs who’s teams didn’t make the playoffs last season. His take reeks of we’ve sucked therefore we will always suck as a result of our history. Never mind the 10 or 11 coaching changes over the last few years that have lead immediate playoff births.

  24. NOSBOS Says:

    You better than bro,you’re very talented. You ain’t got to be on some following ish. Try the other route awhile and notice how your site starts booming. 20,000 a day??? Spin a different angle for a change and notice how many more begin typing.

    Defense Rules—

    No, you read my comment wrong.

  26. NOSBOS Says:

    People wanna be like “H3ll yea,that’s what the f$&@ I’m talking bout right there”. Not all the time “phsst what the f$&@ is this”..

  27. martinii Says:

    Buc’s downtime. What to do? 1) Take the kids to the beach. 2) Clean the Garage. 3) Enjoy a day at Busch Gardens. What not to do? 1) Analyze QB strengths in the NFC South. 2) Argue with football Journalist about Hypothetical Trivia. 3) Read BS comments from former players (Seriously.) Outside of the signing of our last two draft picks not many life or death events are going to happen to the Buc’s in the next six weeks. Give it a break, Get a life, don’t hate over trivial BS. I love Buc football as much as any of you, but they set aside free time for players and FANS. Enjoy it!

  28. Defense Rules Says:

    Todd … I might have read your comments wrong, but it seems to me that it all just comes down to folks having different OPINIONS at this point in the season about how the season will go. I’ve categorized myself for many, many years as an ‘Idealistic Realist’. I always HOPE for the best (aah yes, the ‘idealist’ in me) but I do tend to be rather ‘pragmatic’ & admittedly somewhat ‘conservative’ in some things at least (thus the ‘realist’).

    I’ve long used the term ‘cautiously optimistic’ which is kinda the middle ground between the two. IMO that’s where most Bucs’ fans reside … cautiously optimistic. Why else would we come back year after year after year looking at basically the same team (with a few ‘tweaks’ here or there) but expecting different results. Websters has a wonderful word for that … CRAZY.

    This year WILL be different though. Unless it isn’t.

  29. Magadude Says:

    Objectively put, the odds of the Bucs making the playoffs are very slim. I hope I’m wrong, but doubt it. I see a tepid performance opening day and improvement just four days later when CAR comes to town, but a major shakeup of coaches and players very rarely leads to quick positive results. It seems for every plus going into to this season there are more negatives. The O is not as good on paper, and the D probably a wash at best, maybe a bit worse on paper, until we see what all the new DBs and White can do. But being down JPP, GMC, Beckwith, J. Evans, and Kwon is not a comfortable look right now. “Hope” has nothing to do with an objective look. I pretty much agree with Joe on all this…

    Chances of a surprise 2-0 start again. Slim and none.

  30. Magadude Says:

    The sports media in this area absolutely stinks. Newspapers are but dead and worse one ever took over the other one that had very deep roots into sports in this area. TBT falls well short. If we didn’t have JBF and a couple others, there would basically ONLY Jenna’s feed into the national ESPN channels, which…due to her…is just okay at best. A few here seem to think this is supposed to be pump-up-the-Bucs all day every day and those who take up the contrroverial issues when Joe post the subjects are told to shut up, leave, or are accused of being everything from trolls to racists…just for taking a different position. Those types seem to misunderstand what this country is about, and what Freedom of the Press is about. And now some of the always-high Buc fans are getting on Joe for being negative? On his own site? Wierd. If you want all positive, all PR, all warmth and love, go to, where the sun always shines…as it should. Or, feel free to start your own and “delete people” you disagree with. As for JBF, “play on.”

  31. gotbbucs Says:

    The success of this team will come down to chemistry and cohesion. If they dont gel, they lose. If they come together, they have a chance.

    A close team believing in the process can trump some talent deficiencies. If Bowles can put together a good scheme with what talent is there then they have a chance. This defense hasn’t had a player charisma wise like Devin White since Brooks and Lynch. I really hope he can get the whole team to rally, with GMC gone I think there’s a chance. For the most part, this is a young and new defensive collection of players that shouldnt carry much of the losing infection.

  32. Darin Says:

    Love ya AB!! Keep lovin

  33. Oregonbucsfan Says:

    Wow! I have never been on a sports site like this one. Todd and (the other guy) take on the originator of this way better than average blog and proceed to tell him what a POS his opinions are. And Joe answered in cogent fashion. Amazing!
    “See that ish don’t work on me,that’s why I come to convince others not allow those tricks to be exercised on them.”….(the other guy)
    Does anybody detect “illusions of grandeur” in this post? Personally, I think Joe has expressed very closely with most realistic Buc fans. We have been let down time and again with all the buildup leading to 5-11 type seasons. We started last year with a huge bang and still wound up in the our most familiar position- -the cellar. But, hope spring eternal and this is a new year. Joe, like the rest of us, hopes the Bucs do well this year. However, hope is not the emotion that separates different fans. Every NFL fan has hope.
    What should be discussed here is how this team can get better and what we have done good/AND BAD in the past. We should learn from our mistakes and post comments that make sense.
    Irrational exuberance is fine as long as one defends his opinion rationally and doesn’t make an azz of himself taking on the site creator.

  34. Magadude Says:

    That’s great gouge on Newton Joe, thanks. Matty Ice is known for doing well to get places (playoffs) and choking when he gets there. My biggest fear is the Saints…I hope this is the year Brees finally slows down but that’s yet to be seen. Playing six division games with the #4 QB of all four teams is never good going into the season.

  35. Oregonbucsfan Says:

    martini, defense Rules, Magadude- -I agree with each of your posts. You’ve expressed my feelings exactly in, perhaps, better words than mine.

  36. Joe Says:


    Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated.

  37. TexBuc Says:

    Improved kicking game and average defense will equal playoffs. Saints are trying to replace all pro center Max Unger with a rookie, Newtons off surgery is being asked to change throwing motion, and Falcons defense is attempting to rebound from several season ending injuries from key defenders.

  38. rrsrq Says:

    Who cares about the other teams, win the game in front of you at the time. Anything can happen, who picked the Raptors at the beginning of the NBA season or the St. Louis Blues at the beginning of the NHL season. I’m riding with AB’s prediction and BA’s optimism

  39. NOSBOS Says:

    Illusion of Granduer my @$$ mr.class. The new regime is certified and proven to have shown an ability to produce a winning product. If Joe doesn’t wish to acknowledge this now then what will the basis of his site be once they prove to turnaround yet another franchise here shortly. Again I’ve named at least 10 HCs who were hired over the last few years and proceeded to go str8 to playoffs in their first season with the team. Joe doesn’t wish to do any homework on that fact because it goes against his daily narrative of doom and gloom.

  40. rhenry Says:

    Playoffs? Playoffs? Did you say Playoffs? H$ll yeah, count me in on the playoff bandwagon my friends. 11-5. How are the Bucs gonna do it you ask? With smart coaching, hungry players and smashing the other team in the mouth.

  41. NOSBOS Says:

    Mr.class let me take a stab at it. You own your own business right.. That business I’ll assume is a Fortune 500 company and you are listed in Forbes magazine. Doing alright for yourself. Congratulations on all the success. Have a question tho while you were climbing that ladder did you not take any suggestions from what might one day become potential consumers??? Just curious.

  42. Joe Says:

    Illusion of Granduer my @$$ mr.class. The new regime is certified and proven to have shown an ability to produce a winning product.

    Please. Joe has never denied this. That doesn’t automatically mean Arians will be successful here. How successful was Bill Parcells in Dallas? George Seifert had two rings to his name (more as an assistant) and he fell on his face in Carolina. How many playoff games did Paul Brown win as Bengals coach? (Go do some homework there). Feel free to document what Hank Stram did in New Orleans.

    All but one of those aforementioned coaches are in the Hall of Fame.

    Yeah Arians has a huge resume. He also has one helluva steep hill to climb here to get the Bucs to the playoffs.

  43. No Risk It No Biscuit Says:

    @nosbos….. you are right on track. I usually skip to the real information written by Ira, Steve or the intern. I skip the garbage by Mr. Depression himself.

    Go Bucs!!!

  44. OneBuc55 Says:

    Rhenry I’ll piggy back off of your comment; better coaching and young hungry players is the biggest reason I believe this team can make to playoffs…

    Honestly, I don’t understand the doom and gloom by many of these posters…This team isn’t very far off from a talent standpoint, even without JPP and McCoy; (assuming our offense stays about the same or slightly improves statstically) we just need our defense to go from atrocious to average; that would be at least a 3 game improvement alone…If our defense happens to be really good under Bowles we could realistically double our win total from last year…

    Add in some consistency from our running game and kicking game and I can see us winning at least 10 or 11 games….

  45. Couch Fan Says:

    I dont care about being negative. The Bucs deserve it with all the losing. I have no problem with that. But I still use common sense and implying the Bucs chances at the playoffs are dependant on players who are on other teams is…. Nevermind. Lol yall continue your love fest with these”opinions”.

  46. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    That was NOT the word I expected, lol.

  47. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Stop jumping Joe’s case about negativity…”

    I know, I’ve done it too, but we all have to remember that both Joes are frustrated fans as well. We voice our frustrations here…and they have the right to voice theirs on their own website.

    Sure, it drives me crazy at times…but it’s gotta be hard to maintain a balance with so much losing. It is for me, certainly.

  48. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Couch Fan Says
    “I dont care about being negative. The Bucs deserve it with all the losing. I have no problem with that. But I still use common sense and implying the Bucs chances at the playoffs are dependent on players who are on other teams is…. Nevermind.”

    This is as good a chance as any to voice my own view of things, and maybe some will have the views in common.

    Before Dungy, that fans had been broken. I mean, we were loyal, yes, but it was pure negativity. Games were blacked out (a lot). I had a bus driver say he discovered the secret to making money gambling…bet against the Bucs and he came ahead every year.

    When Sam was fired, I did not like it. Yes, he had his chance, and it was a fair chance…but I saw those three draft picks and felt he might turn things around because of them. But Dungy, he won me over pretty quickly.

    The Bucs became enjoyable again.

    Around the time Dungy was fired, my wife was bugging me to go to church…and like a dummy, I told her I’d go when the Bucs won a superbowl (my version of when hell froze over at the time). They hired Gruden, won a SB and I have been going to church since.

    Since Gruden was fired, this team has sucked. Even when they went 10-6. we all knew it would not last. They fell into that record, because hte team was self destructing in front of the fans (behavior issues, key players being cut or leaving, etc).

    And now, here were are, close to the point we were in before Dungy…but not quite broken.

    So I understand how a lot of fans feel…

    …I myself have issues about the team. It isn’t just the losing. The Fans. The Media. Losing players I really liked. I get it. I really do. And Arians, for a good bit, seemed like a blow-hard. All talk.

    But I am seeing a few things, here and there, that are gradually helping me buy in.

    Still, I have a ‘Don’t tell me. Show me.’ attitude.

    I won’t discount anything being possible. Going 0-16 or winning a Superbowl. Anything is possible at this point. And for that reason, I did not make a draft wishlist. I will not predict our season record.

    I am waiting to be shown, one way or another.

    But I do believe anything is possible. After Dungy and Gruden, how can I not?

  49. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Joes are not being negative they are being realistic. Past 2 years the joes were stating how good the bucs were going to be when a small minority here kept screaming the bucs have ZERO up front on both sides. Whaaat? Joe never wrote the Bucs would be a playoff team last season. –Joe The bucs still are lacking up front on both sides and then glaring holes all over as well. This is still a 5-11 team at best, Arians may help to win one more. The bucs are a new GM and 2-3 years away from the playoffs. The Joes are getting it right this year

  50. Joe Says:

    Joes are not being negative they are being realistic.

    Thank you.

  51. Youngbucs Says:

    So when times are tough which is almost always with the Buc’s, publishing negative articles isn’t going to fill the void of having a non winning team? You play to your audience just like any concert get real.

  52. Todd Says:

    Defense Rules—

    I stand by my original observation. Joe said the only way he can see the Bucs in the playoffs is if a couple other QB’s play sh!tty. Another way to view it is “if our defense plays so well they bring out the sh!tty in the other QB’s. Ones a pessimistic view that doesn’t necessarily credit our coaching or players when we make the playoffs. The other is an optimistic view giving credit where credit is due (at that point).

    My pragmatic observation holds true in my view…that the only way Joe sees the Bucs in the playoffs is if Joe LITERALLY sees the Bucs in the playoffs. Period. How is that bashing Joe? Above most, Joe has always wrote with a perpetual “show me” mindset. I think he would honestly admit that.

    So my comment was far from being a bashing comment. I was just noting Bryant, like me, is trading on hope…Joe never does.

    Which is cool. I get it. But was can all have and own our own mindsets and comment accordingly.

    I’m the resident, unashamed optimist. So what?

  53. Magadude Says:

    We have had coaches take teams to SBs and then come fail here. Don’t assume Arians will do any better than any coach before him. Don’t climb to the top floor until the stairway is actually built.

  54. Joe Says:

    We have had coaches take teams to SBs

    Can only think of Lovie. Who else is Joe missing?

    Ah, forgot. Sam Wyche. You are right!

  55. Tye Says:

    Looking over their schedules I would not be at all surprised if the Falcons and Saints aren’t the top two in NFCS.. Panthers depend on cams repaired shoulder.. The Bucs in All likely hood will be fighting for 3rd place but their schedule quite possibly will solidify them cellar dwellers 1 more year… Falcons 11-5; Saints 10-6; Panthers 7-9; Bucs 4-12

  56. SOFIERCE Says:

    Put me down for a playoff birth this year! It’s happening.

  57. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Better coaching, better schemes, actual accountability, replacing players if they’re not doing their jobs (see Grimes and Benenoch last year), an urgency to win games this year, faster defense…This may work in our favor this year.

  60. NOSBOS Says:

    If this were 80s or early to mid 90s I would be like yea we gotta develop and wait our turn. You had to build back then in order to compete against well established teams because there wasn’t nearly as much player movement back then. Now??? Phsst,man yo QB can get hot and get in you in the playoffs. Or your defense can be stifling i.e bears and ravens with average or garbage QB play and get into today’s playoffs. The days of wishing and hoping your team somehow win against a dynasty are no more. Because there are no longer dynasties present in the league with exception of one franchise. Parity killed the dynasties.

  61. NOSBOS Says:

    That’s why I can come up 10 to 12 new hires that made it to the playoffs in their first year of service with their new team.. Parity.

  62. Nick2 Says:

    It’s easy to bash the bus they have easily been the worst team in the nfc for quite a while. That being said they have only had 3 quality coaches and they were all before this drought, Joe wake up we finally have a coach who will make a difference and bring his players to their potential.. Our coaches have. Even that bad but the drought is finally over. Get on the bandwagon as late as you want Joe!!

  63. BucFan727 Says:

    Its more than Winstons turnovers Bobby. Its a team sport. Even if he didnt turn the ball over last year. That defence wasnt stopping nobody. The coaches new that after watching film thats why we had such a turn over on defence. 7 games lost by 1 score. And Bryant is got a leg up on Joe in my book. Never believed in Koeter. But we got some coaches now. Joes been burned by the Bucs so many times how could you blame him for playing it safe. Its going to be fun year for Bucs fans. Cant wait.

  64. NOSBOS Says:

    Give y’all an example of the “Parity” of today’s game. 2016 eagles finished like I’ve before 7 and 9 with out a playoff birth. That offseason they fire and hired a new HC (rookie HC) sign Alshon Jeffery,Torre Smith and Legarret Blount. With a second year QB and journeymen backup they proceeded to go 13 and 3 en-route to winning the Super Bowl. Now that’s some for ya..

    I said it 3 weeks ago, its finally catching on….and yeah, dirt birds and the kitties will be fighting for our basement in the division…Dirk leading 1 team, ice cream man on the other….we’ve turned the corner guys and gals. Finally! Thats why I told everyone to bet on the over 6.5 wins…its like taking candy from a kid. 80 for every 100 you bet. And im throwing 100 on that SB odd….turn 100 into 111500….or lose it, I dont care, I rarely gamble but still know how to spot gimmes.

    what an amazing season Bryant’s had in Jon’s last year.

    Too bad we couldn’t squeeze out one more win down the stretch.

    Better to hear that than the typical 8-8 from the Joe’s. Luckily you guys report news and aren’t any kind of foremost experts on the NFL. I could see it being an 8-8 season though, maybe it takes a while for both sides to into full swing
