“I Don’t Really Think We Are Going To Have Any Problems”

November 19th, 2020

Bruce Arians responds

Based on his national radio appearance yesterday, Bucco Bruce Arians doesn’t expect any off-field stunts by furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing Bucs receiver Antonio Brown.

At least, not until the Bucs’ season comes to a close.

Of course, on Monday we learned Brown had a freakout at his Hollywood (Fla.) gated condo community where he tossed a bike at a security guard shack and tore up a security camera (Brown paid for all of the repairs) — 12 days before signing with the Bucs.

The Bucs released a statement shortly after news broke saying they were aware of the incident without saying when they became aware.

On “Late Hits,” co-hosted by Tom Pelissero and Bill Polian exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Pelissero pointed out that Brown has a well-documented pattern of being out of control and wild fits of rage.

Pelissero point-blank asked Arians how worried he is that within the next couple of months he will get a call in the middle of the night to inform him of yet another Brown escapade.

Arians said in so many words, he has no worries.

“Really, none,” Arians responded. “We knew of the [latest condo] incident. He has been a model citizen [since signing with the Bucs]. If and when he is not, we will move on. He knows that. Our team knows that.

“I don’t really think we are going to have any problems. We haven’t had any so far. And I really would not anticipate any.”

Joe thinks it is pretty clear now why Brown is (was?) living with park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, jet ski-losing Bucs quarterback Tom Brady. Basically, it seems Brown needs a babysitter when he’s away from One Buc Palace and Brady is that guy.

It would not surprise Joe one bit if part of the deal to bring Brown into Tampa is that he had to agree to adult supervision at all times away from One Buc Palace.

And it would take someone like Brady or Vita Vea or Chris Godwin or Lavonte David to be with Brown constantly to make sure he doesn’t go mental at the tiniest perceived slight.

    Vontaze Burdict scrambled his brain- Sudden uncontrollable bouts of rage from head injuries are a very real thing. I used to work as a caregiver for a 19 year old guy who had a bad head injury from an ATV crash. 0-100 instantly and suddenly, would charge like a bull and flip out!!! Serious Rage!! Scary stuff- and sad- and very real.

    I say AB should bring back the Mugato from Zoolander hair style

    Come on. Big deal. He threw a bike and beat up a camera. Who hasn’t? I mean, it’s not like he raped someone.

    Too bad Jameis didn’t have that babysitter deal. No Uber driver incident. But that is water under the bridge.

    One of the Joe’s says AB hasn’t been right since he took that shot to the head. I think he may be onto something. I studied neurology in school and worked in neurodiagnostics. I learned the brain is pretty damn important.

    Seriously though, if you want to know how bad an injury to the frontal cortex can be, and just how much it can affect behavior, look up “Phineas Gage”.

    From Wikipedia:

    P. Gage (1823–1860) was an American railroad construction foreman remembered for his improbable[B1]:19 survival of an accident in which a large iron rod was driven completely through his head, destroying much of his brain’s left frontal lobe, and for that injury’s reported effects on his personality and behavior over the remaining 12 years of his life‍—‌effects sufficiently profound (for a time at least) that friends saw him as “no longer Gage”. [H]:14

    Not buying the babysitting gig as part of the deal–think it was an add-on at best. Contrary to what Arians has said, I do think Brady wanted him, pushed it, and I would not be surprised if he said he could take the south wing of the Jeter mansion, no problem. That is, Brady understands interpersonal relationships and leadership well, and also knows football. It’s why he’s the goat. The whole situation feels temporary with both Brady and AB, which is fine.

    So many “hassles”…….

    Maybe AB is babysitting TB12. I mean, TB12 is the one guilty of home invasion. Lol
