“The Only Guy Out Is Antonio Brown”

October 29th, 2021

Good news.

It appears the Bucs are close to full strength (if you don’t count cornerbacks).

That’s the pronouncement from Bucs Super Bowl-winning coach Bucco Bruce Arians after practice today, his final press briefing before the Bucs face the slimy Saints Sunday.

So it appears foot-rubbing, car-littering, film guru tight end Rob Gronkowski, linebacker Lavonte David, cornerbacks Richard Sherman, Jamel Dean and Dee Delaney all have a green light to try to get on the field Sunday afternoon in the Superdome.

“The only guy out is Antonio Brown,” Arians said.

In the immortal words of Lloyd Christmas, “So you are telling me there’s a chance?”

That doesn’t mean the aforementioned names will be active, just that only Brown definitively is ruled out for Sunday.

Joe is feeling better all of a sudden.

    What’s the status of Miller? IR? Or is he one of the ones healed enough to play Sunday?

    good question willie

    I want to see TB dropping bombs to Scotty again soon. So many weapons that need to be fed! I suspect Darden will get some shots to take it to the house, bit not in a long bomb way.

    Deep thought: If Lloyd Christmas married Mary Swanson, she would have been Mary Christmas.

    Scotty Miller, Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting are all still on IR. If they get off that, trust Joe, you will know. 🙂

    Earlier this week, the local ABC affiliate had video of Antonio Brown talking to Richard Sherman at practice and in the background, it appeared to be Scotty Miller running sprints tethered to a bungee cord.

    So at least Miller (he has a nasty turf toe injury) is running. Guessing that’s a good sign.


    Joe studied this video again and it appears that actually might be Sean Murphy-Bunting. It seems like whoever is running has a brace on his right elbow. Fast-forward to the 0:22 mark.

    After the Saints, the Bucs don’t play a winning football team for six weeks.

    I’d like to see everyone back healthy for the last 4 games.

    AB healthy and happy will put us in another stratosphere……

    Let’s not forget the forgettable long snapper, Zach Triner…….and while we are on the subject, Carson Tinker seems to be doing a good job…..
    Long snapper, an important position that only gets attention when something goes wrong.

  8. PassingThru Says:


    It’s definitely Murphy-Bunting. There’s a brace on the right elbow, and lots of ink on the inside of the left forearm.

  9. Joe Says:


    Thanks. When first saw the video thought it was Scotty Miller. Then this morning watched it again and noticed the elbow brace, which was a tip that it was SMB.

    Turf toe is serious. Remember that it was turf toe that made Deon Sanders retire.
