“It’s A Bad Day When There’s More F-bombs Than Touchdowns”

October 17th, 2022

Screaming and cursing to motivate teammates on the sidelines was a topic tonight on Tom Brady’s weekly Let’s Go! show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio.

Brady was caught by FOX cameras yesterday in Pittsburgh screaming at his offensive linemen as they sat on the bench. Spit was flying from Brady’s mouth as he was barking to them that “they’re so much better than the way you’re f’n playing.”

(Joe also was told Brady was yelling at the line immediately after the first series, a Tampa Bay 3-and-out.)

Brady sort of lamented tonight that years ago TV broadcasts intentionally didn’t show that kind of sideline chatter, but Brady said he recognizes it’s a new media world and that’s the way it is.

As for the screaming, Brady said that’s his job. He noted it’s not the right tackle’s role to address deficiencies and motivate during a game. On gameday, the QB is the vocal leader and that’s just Brady doing his thing, he said.

“It’s a bad day when there’s more F-bombs than touchdowns. So that was not one of my better days,” Brady added, saying his teammates accept the motivation and he has a great rapport with all of them.

Screaming motivation comes in many forms, Brady said, noting he’s often encouraging and pleading, as well.

Unfortunately, all the hollering didn’t spark the Bucs offense. Of course, Brady said in various ways that hard, precision work will get the Bucs out of their offensive doldrums.

(For those who missed the Brady video. It’s below.)

    Looks like he is all in to me…

    Brady’s sideline antics are out of control this season….either play better or act like a leader….screaming at your O-line is not leadership

  3. firethecannons Says:

    why are they waiting till wednsday to get on the practice field–should be on it all day today and every day up till panthers game day Brady included

  4. macajubav Says:

    Tom is cursing these guys out for being mentally checked out during the Sat. practice and walk through. oh, no, nevermind, he wasnt there.

    100% Correct

  6. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    There’s a different kind of tension in Brady. I think he’s a whirlwind of emotions right now. Screw the divorce stuff. I’m talking football. Maybe it’s the fact he knows this is it for him, yet he’s chosen not to announce it. He knows all eyes are on him so he’s been trying to keep his cool. Even in game he seems to be diving and sacrificing like it’s his last hoorah some plays but I’ve also seen timidness from him like his worst nightmare is to go out on a stretcher.
    His confidence level does not seem high. But it’s not too late to get it right. I think if this really is the swan song for Brady he should announce it and watch this team sell out to get him one more ring.

  7. PassingThru Says:

    Yeah, but Bowles thinks the fan base should drink the Kool-aid and believe that Hainsey and Goedeke aren’t the problem.

  8. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Some one needs to get em right? No?

  9. Redeemer Says:

    The second part of the rant was, “you’re getting your as#$@ kicked, and you’re fing taking it” that would motivate me. Especially coming from a man who’s played in 10 Superbowls, and 14 AFC/NFC title games.

  10. Bucs14 Says:

    Shady Brady is done. He can’t cheat in Tampa like he did in NE. The NFL can only gift him so many calls to keep games going. He needs to retire his old azz.

  11. Jack Sparrow Says:

    I think what Brady was telling his O-line was in their whole life they were the bully in school. They eat somebody’s lunch and make them clean it afterwards and now, you guys are getting bullied and you are just taking it up your a $ $ .

  12. adam from ny Says:

    they really miss jensen the tone setter…

    the frothy big fella with baby powder all over him, that will slap your helmet right the f off your head without batting an eye…


    you know, the guy with mysterious knee injury that doctors can not figure out because they’re waiting for the swelling to subside

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    I agree Tbbucs3, ‘screaming at your O-line is not leadership’.

    Analytics plays a huge role in modern-day football IMO. All teams film everything, scrutinize everything down to the tiniest detail. I’m beginning to wonder if BL (and his mentor, BA for that matter) is just a ‘throwback’ to the days before all the analytics. How else do you explain an OC calling the same unsuccessful plays over and over and over, but expecting different results?

    Lenny actually ran to both sides almost equally: 10 to the left, 2 up the middle, 9 to the right. He did great running left in the 1st quarter: 3 runs left for 26 yards. Over the next 3 quarters, Lenny ran left 7 more times for a total of 8 yards. As bad as that sounds, he got 8 yards on 1 run, meaning that the other 6 runs to the left gained ZERO yards. Steelers obviously adjusted after the 1st quarter … but BL didn’t. The same thing happens on other calls constantly throughout the games.

    BTW, Bucs ran 5 plays up the middle in that game. Result: 4 total yards.

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Sorry Tom but real team leaders do not take a couple days off to attend weddings when the team is trying to prepare for their next opponent.

  15. PassingThru Says:

    Or, and maybe I’m just spitballing here, maybe it has nothing to do with Brady’s personal life. Maybe it’s just me but don’t think the crap run blocking or crap pass protection have anything to do with Giselle. It’s called football and something tells me Brady know something about it

  16. adam from ny Says:

    i think the players might be tuning tom out slightly these days, and his goatly preaching might be falling on deaf ears more so these days, as his actions at times are speaking louder than his words…


  17. Defense Rules Says:

    Redeemer … ‘The second part of the rant was, “you’re getting your as#$@ kicked, and you’re fing taking it” that would motivate me.’

    Motivation doesn’t mean diddly Redeemer if the guys kicking your ass are a helluva lot more experienced, meaner & more motivated. We MAY be expecting too much out of a couple of newbies with no prior NFL experience. There’s a reason that Goedeke & Hainsey are paid like rookies, while Marpet & Jensen were making well over $10 mil a year each. Becoming ‘battle-hardened’ takes time. They’re paying their dues right now, and it’s not pretty.

  18. Beeej Says:

    Clearly none of you people remember the Monday night Chicago game in 2020, nothing new about this. There’s the Dick Vermeil approach, THEN there’s the Buddy Ryan approach. I’m wager Tom leans toward Buddy

  19. Adrnagy Says:

    The problem is the oline is a step behind. They need to take it to dline. Jensen was great at that.

  20. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Football is barely watchable now. When Brady is done, I’m done with him.
    He’s one of the few players, worth watching. “The Last of the Mohicans”

    The Bucs are already imploding, still full of themselves from 2 years ago.

    This party is over. I’m saying Sayonara now, to beat the crowd.

  21. adam from ny Says:

    we very well could be on a 4 game losing streak right now…since the last signs of life came from BA and the bucs late in the saints game as they rallied to pull away in that game…

    (remember BA was on the sidelines going crazy – like wtf was he even doing there – he was rallying the troops – that’s what he was doing)

    well let me tell you this:

    if we lose to carolina on sunday (and i know, at this point that’s almost impossible), but if we do…SH!T HAS GOT TO HIT THE FAN

  22. Kyle Says:

    Excuse me Mr. Goat? Can you please stf up and throw td passes. Everything else is bs and nonsense… its football.. throw the ball accurate and on time, change the play if necessary to throw accurate and on time.

  23. SB Says:

    Respect is Earned not given.
    However it can lose it’s power when the GOAT isn’t performing to his standards while missing 10 days of TC. going through a divorce, and skipping a couple days before the game and Sh!tting all over the field.
    Perhaps we don’t know the truth???

  24. Redeemer Says:

    Defense, bull@#$&. These rookies had all camp, three pre-season games, and now six regular season games. They’re professional players now. If they can’t take a little tongue lashing, go sell insurance. The more experienced part I get, but no excuse for being less mean or motivated. Respect you opinion and analysis. Not in this case.

  25. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Tbbucs – lol oh grow a pair. If they were missing assignments over and over again then they deserve it. You want him to give them a reach around around something? Maybe some ice cream cones and a back rub? The fuk dude, it’s an emotional game, he’s 45 and getting killed back there. People need a kick in the ass

  26. adam from ny Says:

    maybe tom took saturday off and go to the wedding to impress gisele from a distance…

    going to the wedding would attract her attention and show he is less all in with the team…

    and also it would have been an event that she would have been by his side for…

    he did that to catch his woman’s eyes and ears from afar

  27. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Oh here we go, the Kyles of the world have made an appearance to share his deep knowledge of quarterbacking, and would like to educate the greatest that has ever done it on how it’s REALLY done! Oh yeah, you betcha Kyle! Go get em tiger. I bet Brady is in his mansion right now, reading your quote and saying to himself: “touche, he’s right.”

  28. D-Rome Says:

    “….and now he’s fired up talking to his offense on the side line.” Brandon Gaudin cracks me up with the way he describes what’s going on and he’s been doing it for years on Madden.

  29. Old School Bucs Says:

    So many great leaders on this site. All these leaders here who led men in combat, led men in pro sports and certainly led men to 7 super bowl wins. All the great advice here from all of these proven leaders. The advice here is so profound because everyone of them know exactly what is going on in the locker room, they all know why Brady is pissed because they know what assignments were or were not missed, and they know exactly what the reasons were for what the team wss executing. All of the brady haters know brady was wrong for missing the walk through because they know what the locker rooms take on it was before he went on to the wedding. So much leadership here I just dont know why all of them are sitting home instead on the side line not being the man in the arena. Those arm chairs are really loud!!

    The one thing I know for sure is this team will be in the playoffs and will win the superbowl. It will be interesting to see were all these leaders are at tha time!

  30. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    Checked out Brady.

  31. adam from ny Says:

    yo i love tommy bee… ^^^

    but the fact that the team is a hot mess right now is not fiction son

  32. Redeemer Says:

    @Old School, hope you’re not confusing grid iron and combat. I did lead men in combat.

  33. TB12 FOR PREZ Says:

    HAHAHAHA. Bunch of whiners! You obviously never watched Brady in New England. He screamed at guys all the bleeping time. He screamed at OCs… everyone but BB. Ive seen him scream to his besties too RG and JE. If the coaches are such amateurs that they cant get a below average performance out of their unit (as opposed to the dumpster fire they are getting) maybe you need better coaches. None of you were whining when it was working. Same Brady. Give me a dammm break that 3 extra days off in August and a missed walk through caused this whole team to collapse. Thats on the COACHES… UNPREPARED to to their jobs… and so their team follows. I wish Brady would scream more and at Leftwich EVERY game. If you had watched Brady for 20+ years you know he plays best when he’s pissed. But whine on until you head back into the dark ages, and have no Goat to make you relevant.

  34. TB12 FOR PREZ Says:

    Hey Redeemer… I respect and agree with most all of your posts. I think old school is like me and just wants the crybabies to zip it. Because that’s a whole different world… football is such a little thing compared to life. But I dare say you could lead these underachievers better than TB and BL ever could…

  35. LakelandSteve Says:

    Brady has every right to scream at them. Apparently getting their asses handed to them every series was not motivation enough. Maybe Bowles should get in their faces too every now and then. Everybody wants to minimize Arians affect on this team but I guarantee one thing he got the players attention, and he got results.

  36. m Says:

    they are getting everyone’s best and they are not playing well obviously. pittsburghs no name defense was gnarly and kicking but! watch pittsburg make the playoffs. tomlin had them ready and angry. we should have lost to atlanta and then atl won again. everyone wants to tell their grand kids ‘ i beat the goat’ they are just getting everyone’s best and they are not matching up and the offensive play calling is atrocious. how did pittsburgh convert so many third downs our corners could not cover. any rookie qb can throw on the bucs notice that? they need to abandon the run and throw 50 times a game. if Brate or Gage make those catches it’sa win this defense just needs 24 points …should not be that difficult

  37. TB12 FOR PREZ Says:

  38. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Great article Joe. Exposed the snowflakes on the site. Wah . Mom !! Tommy is yelling at me cause I suck .

  39. Listnfrmafar Says:

    LMAO, you hypocrites, BA smacks a player on national TV, screams a players all the time, chased AB off the Bucs and Brady screams to his oline, you’re fing better than this, their kicking your asses and you ridicule him? NO Brady NO SB, NO Brady NO NFC South title, NO Brady NO Chance. You haters deserve the eventual toilet you’re about to swim in once Brady leaves and you’re stuck with the Jets and BA’s reject coaches. Let’s see Brady leading passing and TD’s in NFC, 3rd in the league. I suggest you pick on someone NOT doing their jobs like White, LVD, Davis, Shaq, Vea and the invisible Oline.

  40. Redeemer Says:

    TB12 FOR PREZ, I didn’t mean to blur the lines. Appreciate your comment.

  41. Redeemer Says:

    What listn said ^

  42. Just Saying Says:

    Byron and Todd have less than zero energy on the sideline. I get there is some value in keeping your cool but this team seems to play with their coaches energy level. I don’t care if the numbers say the line is doing it’s job because Tom isn’t taking a lot of saks, that is only because he is getting rid of the ball before he gets his head taken off. Oline is a massive liability

  43. Thunder Says:

    Haha, I rarely comment here or on any site because most fans are completely clueless, as most of these comments here prove. The best of the best athletes are not like you and I . They are a completely different breed. Read the various books on Michael Jordan . DEFINITELY read the outstanding book It’s Better to be Feared by Seth Wickersham about the Patriots dynasty. Brady and MJ are the greatest American team sport athletes ever. I know most of you beta males don’t get it, but MJ and Brady are ALPHA males. They are leaders, un afraid to scream their disapproval if teammates aren’t performing. That is because the only thing they care about is WINNING. They are perfectionists who demand everyone has to perform. I don’t really like Cowherd but YouTube his comments today about Brady. Cowherd is usually either dead wrong or exactly right, today he was exactly right. If you think Brady is the problem you are likely a beta.

  44. Old School Bucs Says:

    @redeemer, so have I. No I am not comparing combat with football. I am directing my comments towards all these clowns talking about leadership. Like they know what the dynamics real leadership are, and in this case what the dynamics of the team are!!! To discuss leadership you need to know something about the element being led!
    They dont! Like they know what discussions the team had before brady took off on Friday. Like they really know why brady was lighting them up! They are just spouting off sh*t about things they dont know. The team is 3-3 first place in the conference. They are whinning like little girls and complaining about everything to include a 7 time superbowl winner who had been there done that. This guy led the greatest come back in super bowl history. If he had these asses on his team instead of coming back in that super bowl the falcons would have scored another 75 points in the second half. You think he knows what he is doing in trying to fire up his line? These clowns Want to fire entire coaching staff after 6 games. You know as well as I do, when it gets tough you never ever quit!!!! These asses have already packed it in, want to fire everyone to include the owner and the concessionaires!!! Just pathetic!!!

  45. Goatfarmer Says:

    Leftwich is arrogant and stubborn, but at least he’s not very aware of what’s going on. I’ve never thought he was stupid, Arians wouldn’t have brought him along if that were the case. But Licht and Bowles probably need to tell Leftwich that for the next few weeks , he will get every gameplan approved by BA, and BA has a headset to listen in on the playcalling from the booth.

    This will implode and all the good will and team first crap will go right out the window very soon if this shartshow is not ignarted.

  46. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Better win this division. This team is so underperforming. They should be better than 3-3.

  47. Thunder Says:

    OldSchool you are dead on correct!

  48. lambeau Says:

    Not on the same page? Protection schemes not clear?
    Would it help if Tom was at the Saturday team meetings instead of going to NYC
    to party with his Patriot pals Saturday night? WTF?

  49. adam from ny Says:

    yes BA needs to get in on the play calling…behind the scenes…

    we need the biscuit back in the mix…

    or he needs to tell bowles what to do…

    a lot of key personalities have left this team gutted, aimless and zombified:


  50. AbucAway Says:

    Nah man, the consessionaires are good

  51. Eckwood Says:

    That may have been the worst sneak of Brady’s Career and for Christ sakes this staff can’t scheme Miller, Gage , Perriman or Evans down field …….. Talk about playing down to your opponent !!

  52. Tbbucs3 Says:


    The NFL is a what have you done for me lately leauge….

    Remember MJ in a Wizards uniforms? Even the greats have their washed years.

    Just because Brady’s has had a great career doesn’t mean he’s free from criticism for this season….because he’s been flat out bad this year. If you want to keep living in the past and dwelling on the 7 Superbowls feel free though….

  53. steele Says:

    Brady is right. I hope he keeps screaming at them. Far more intensity and fire needed from all of these guys.

    When the hell is Jensen back? They need the tone-setter and fighter back as soon as possible.

  54. ChiBuc Says:

    TB12 is a d!ck. Stroke him however you like, still a d!ck. This ain’t your Chuck Knoll NFL. If you haven’t noticed, no hard hitting, concussion protocols, minorities and women in elevated roles. But hey, you stick with your flip Motorolas and continue worshipping an entitled d!ck. Excuse after excuse. The face of the franchise would walk out on a team photo for a close up pitching product. Would bail on team in a heartbeat for fins and continues to put himself above his team. Idc about his resume, I care about now

  55. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Many players need to step it up and Brady is first on the list.

  56. Thunder Says:

    TBbucks I’m not dwelling on the past at all. I just laugh at people who have no clue what leadership is. And to say Brady “ has been flat out bad this year” is laughable and inaccurate, but feel free though…

  57. Just Saying Says:

    It isn’t Brady. Imagine the sh!tshow this team would be without him. This team is doing the exact opposite of what they should, when a team is weak against the pass we run, when a qb shreds the blitz we blitz it is maddening how they outsmart themselves.

  58. adam from ny Says:


    lick da ballz 🙂

  59. Redeemer Says:

    Old School, thanks for setting that straight. BTW agree 100%

  60. TB12 FOR PREZ Says:

    Yeah… ChiBuc would be a great asset on the team.. Lets send him out there and see how long he lasts when he is held accountable by the best

  61. Buccos Says:

    Even the announcers said that they would never meet the team at the game. As the QB you are leading the team everywhere. You lead them on the field, you lead them on the plane. You always travel with the team. And he has missed a lot of practice time and it shows. I don’t care what all you bandwagon aBrady Bucs fans say. You don’t put yourself ahead of the team. And look at New England without Brady. They will be irrelevant for the next 20 years.

  62. Rod Munch Says:

    The offensive line played improved quite a bit after Brady chewed them out. Now he needs to go to the sidelines and berate that idiot Leftwich.

  63. captivajim Says:

    without Jensen the offense seems ruderless. Brady ‘s impatient because he knows this is his last yr & dosen’t want to finish like Farve did . Plus ,he’s got the divorce.

    That is NO excuse for temper tatrums . there are 5 new guys in the offense-thats half of the 1st team has little or no loyalty to Brady because he didn’t do anything for them like win a SB.. So , his idea of leadership tantrums eventually will not be well received-from a not mobile old guy who gets special permissions

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    captivajim – The offense is ‘ruderless’ because of Jensen, not because of Arians not being there, or that idiot Leftwich being the most predictable OC in football? Wow, talk about all-time stupid takes. LOL!

  65. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Take away the garbage time stats Brady put up against the Cheifs….and yes Brady has absolutely been bad this season. 1 passing TD in 5/6 games this year is not good….

  66. TB12 FOR PREZ Says:

    Hows this for Brady bandwagon fan… Ive watched eery snap since 2002. You know who the leader of the team was in NE? it was BB. Yes Brady was the leader of the offense, but you think the whole team had a shizza game because he met them at the stadium? Have you ever had a job that wasn’t fast food? If not you may not understand what supervision is…just sayin

  67. Thunder Says:

    TBBucks whatever helps you sleep at night

  68. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Man, the trolls on this site are unbelievable! Brady came to TB, recruited talent and handed the fans a SB trophy in his first year. Then they criticized BA. Now the Times is slicing up Brady. Apparently the fans ( and media) have a short memory of what a dumpster franchise this was until BA and Brady showed up and the got rid of the embarrassment know as Jameis. Say what you want, I’ll always be grateful for the 2 best people the Bucs have ever had other than Leroy Selmon and Derrick Brooks. Thank you Tom and Bruce. Please take over the play calling.

  69. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    There sure is a lot of stupid drivel here. We lost because Brady missed a walkthrough and screamed at his underperforming OL? Seriously? In case you forgot, he has won 7 Super Bowls, including one for us. We were 13-4 last year, and probably would’ve won the SB again except for Bowles horrendous call against the Rams. Oh, and the Patriots have a losing record since he left. Pretty safe to say Brady knows what he’s doing.

    No, our OL is playing poorly. They are not run blocking or consistently giving Brady time. Our OC is suffering from brain lock, and our special teams are horrible. Meanwhile, our D is top five, and have played well in 5 of six games, certainly better than last year. The problem is not Brady.

  70. captivajim Says:

    Bowles and to a greater extent Leftwich rode on the backs of BA & TB the last 2 yrs .. Seeing Bowles with the Jets–I had doubts from the get-go & those doubts have all been confirmed.
    Leftwich had been “protected” & promoted by BA for years.-without BA leftwich is incompetent-pure & simple.

    Jensen was the leader of the 11 offensive guys on the field .He was the spark , was fiesty & he was respected by the guys who were with the Bucs when Brady got there..

  71. Lisa Mez Says:

    There has been rumored about is Michael Jordan death!
    We have posted the whole story in our blog. do read

  72. Longtime Brady Fan Says:

    Maybe Tom is missing guy’s that are wide open but I’m not seeing that. Whether it is the line, play design or underestimating your opponent the lack of production is apparent. The short passing, move the chains passing game is not at the level it was in New England. NE’s O line rarely over powered playoff teams. The lines were good but it was the run play designs, execution and move the chains passing game that made a guy like Troy Brown a Patriots legend. The next few
    games are the season.

  73. alton green Says:

    To all you experts, can I have your autograph? I’m out of TP. All of you praised the things he brought from New England. Y’all act like a bunch of spoiled brats. Besides himself, the most important thing he brought with him was “DO YOUR FREAK’N JOB!!!!” That seems to offend some of you. Oh. one more thing, Joe Biden got 80 million votes

  74. George Says:

    Have been saying since training camp , the Bucs needed to bring in two seasoned o lineman to replace the injured players .

    Licht is relying on inexperienced players who are getting thrown around like rag dolls

    Doesn’t make business sense to me to waste an asset like Tom Brady

  75. Ed Says:

    I think most of us are missing the real factor in these games. Red zone offense. Why is it so bad? I would say when you have 1st and goal on the 1 foot line you just get Fournette run straight ahead and not do some stupid stretch play where you backup linemen have to pull and block sideways. They missed the block and then Lenny is nailed for a 4 yard loss. That isn’t on Brady, that is stupid play calling.

    All you have to do, is put in a fullback and turn around and pound him behind Mason and Wirfs. How stupid is it to run to your weakest lineman to the left.

    You also could run White to the right and let him go airborn. This isn’t that hard but no, Leftwich decides to do a difficult play for a foot.

    Other games we have had multiple field goals in the red zone. The plays have been awful. They aren’t crossing, they aren’t doing pick plays and they aren’t throwing fades to Mike Evans.

    They have sucked all season in the red zone because someone doesn’t know how to scheme someone open for a touchdown and that isn’t Brady’s fault.

    This coaching staff deserves a “D” grade for the season and thats only because of how well the D played vs Dallas and New Orleans and Green Bay. If you look at offensive coaching, its an “F”.

  76. THOMAS PFALZ Says:

    Brady needs to be screaming at worthless Leftwitch. If the Bucs don’t turn this season around I would be getting rid of Arians, Bowles, Leftwitch & maybe the special teams OL coach.

  77. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Comical, someone posted this SUPERVISION, LEADERSHIP, Belichick led the Pat’s, “The Patriots Way!” Brady bought in and became the poster boy and the rest followed. I agree NOT a good look not flying with the team but going to an event on Friday night? Please. What NO ONE is saying Bowles had to approve Brady’s absence. The Coaches DO NOT lead, supervise or motivate this team. BA may have a LOT of flaws but make no mistake he let everyone know he led the team.

  78. Listnfrmafar Says:

    FYI, the Patriots running the score up on Lions and Cleveland, doesn’t make them a winning team. They will go 8-9 or 9-8 at best, smoke & mirrors.

  79. Bucsfan13 Says:

    All of you snowflakes complaining about this is silly. Brady has had some emotional outburst throughput. Look it up! He’s even went at it with coaches. I just think this team isn’t NE. They’re soft. And some Bucs fans are soft for being triggered by this outburst

  80. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Joe really needs to write an explainer on the difference between practice and walkthroughs. People keep conflating Brady missing walkthrough with missing practice. Walkthroughs are very brief and really not important in the scheme of things. Brady was a FULL participant in practice for the week. He even skipped his vet day. Also, you morons think Brady is the only with designated vet days. Godwin is off on Thursday and Lavonte is off on Friday. Any criticism for them? Vet days are normal! And vet days aren’t personal days. These guys still show up for meetings and film work. The lack of knowledge of the intricacies of how a team operates is the heart of this fake outrage
