Watch out Tom, or you’ll be back to 4th string!

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

From a BB press conference today:


Q: Would you feel comfortable with Matt Cassell as a backup?
A: I don’t know. I don’t know. I think Brady has established himself.

Ya think, Bill? 🙂 🙂

Is that Tom Harrison or Rodney Brady?

From Brady’s press conference today:

I think weve probably been disrespected more than any team in the league this year. I think weve been given up on by a lot of media people, a lot of fans, our own fans, other people around the league. I think if theres one team that feels like theyre disrespected, its us. I dont disrespect Jacksonville. Its [hard] to disrespect a team thats 12-4. If we were 12-4 it would be different. I think people gave up on us a long time ago.

Another funny one from the Bucs’ website

Tampa Bay has another one of their hilarious site intros up. Needs flash.

T.I.B., the next important stat?

Friday, September 16th, 2005

Simmons actually says something funny for the first time in ages:

When Baltimore fans derisively cheered an injured Kyle Boller last week, that made me think of something: Can you imagine any other career in which you could suffer an injury, but because you stink at your job so much, everyone else in your office will start cheering derisively as you’re helped out of the building? Do you ever bounce back from that one? Instead of creating complicated statistics that only like 0.3 percent of the human population can understand, I wish the Football Outsider guys would research stuff like “Effectiveness of shaky quarterbacks in the weeks and months after a T.I.B. (traumatic injury booing).” Now that’s the stuff that would be fascinating. Has any quarterback ever bounced back from that situation before and thrived in front of those same fans?
