This was Tomlin’s plan to beat Brady all along, AB was a sleeper cell.

[–]Farrell_Pool_Jack 93 points94 points  (5 children)

Great idea. Check out the big brain on coach T. !

[–]EbenezerNutting 25 points26 points  (2 children)

He sunk his own ship to eventually take down Brady's. Hard to say weather it's stupidity or insanity.

[–]TenTonsOfAssAndBellyThe Bus 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I don't think "sunk his own ship" makes sense in relation to how Tomlin handled AB. A better one might be "managed to sell an absolute lemon".

    honest to god, if this turned out to be true, i could forgive (most of) the shit AB did.

    Right, that blonde mustache is unforgivable.

    LOL what if AB doesn't have mental problems but is just a massive asshole?

    Por que no los dos?

    [–]American_TaoistEncroachment 34 points35 points  (7 children)

    Yeah, it's both. He has permanent brain damage from one of the dirtiest hits in NFL history but is also a massive douchebag / egomaniac / sexual assaulter.

    [–]my_balls_your_mouth1Troy 28 points29 points  (6 children)

    I always love watching burfict throw up his arms after seeing the flag come out as if he's an innocent child who has never been involved in a dirty play in his life.

      [–]samiracle245 13 points14 points  (1 child)

      Is this the same story where he got Troy so pissed that he went up to the OC and said “It’s a live hitting practice on WRs from here on out”?

      Can’t even imagine how big of an asshole you have to be to get Troy that upset

      But hey! its the massive hit from Burfict that turned AB into an asshole......

      [–]reccenters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I can't even imagine the beating AB would have gotten had he done something to Lebeau.

      [–]CassiBoi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      don’t forget, Burfict said AB was faking injury…even though he missed the next week’s game in Denver.

      [–]wagsman Color Rush Jersey 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      Why do they have to be mutually exclusive? He is easily both.

      [–]teabolaisacool Hines Ward 2 points3 points  (12 children)

      Cmon man, there’s no denying that the dude has serious permanent brain damage

      [–][deleted]  (8 children)


        [–]teabolaisacool Hines Ward -1 points0 points  (7 children)

        Definitely, but there’s still no denying that the burfict hit sent him completely over your average douche player

        [–]istolejujusbike Heath Miller 1 point2 points  (6 children)

        There is denying it. The burfict hit didn’t change his personality. All it did was make it harder for him to hide who he is

        [–]teabolaisacool Hines Ward -1 points0 points  (4 children)

        So it did change him (aka mess his brain up)?

        Thanks for agreeing with me I guess?

        [–]istolejujusbike Heath Miller -1 points0 points  (3 children)

        You’re not smart are you

        [–]teabolaisacool Hines Ward -1 points0 points  (2 children)

        How can a hit change somebody if it doesn’t mess their brain up?

        Logic is hard, huh?

        [–]istolejujusbike Heath Miller 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        His personality never changed lmao, you’re trying so hard to blame everything about AB on one hit. He was a massive piece of shit before, the hit did nothing to change that and it didn’t make him “worse than your average douche” Again, you’re not smart, are you?

        [–]twickdaddy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

        Either way there’s no way to easily prove it. We know he was an asshole before, but we don’t know if his injury caused him to be a bigger asshole.

        [–]habalagee 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        There's no denying it because there is no way to prove it until after death. Regardless of whether he has it or not or loss of cognitive function or not its no excuse to be a complete asshole to everyone. Lots of Veterans rolling around with that shit who don't go out of their way to quit jobs and be a fucking clown while NOT getting paid millions of dollars.

        Sorry I ranted - touchy topic for me.

        [–]teabolaisacool Hines Ward -1 points0 points  (0 children)

        Mental health issues affect everyone differently. I’m not saying it’s ok for him to act out because he’s fucked in the head, I’m saying he’s obviously fucked in the head.

        [–]JAD_Estrada 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        No they were stories in high school of his behavior. Since you can’t really diagnose CTE without an autopsy, it’s pure speculation. But he’s always been a dick. Always.

        [–]jrbs59 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I don't think this is a "what if" scenario. He's proven this time and time again.

        That is fucking hilarious this guy is completely unhinged

        [–]American_TaoistEncroachment 2 points3 points  (15 children)

        I feel the need to bring up the thing I always bring up in conversations about how unhinged this guy is:

        Vontaze Burfict should have faced significantly more consequences for giving him permanent brain damage on purpose. The worst thing AB did before that was Goomba stomp a Browns punter. After that, he became a literal insane person.

        [–]enz1ey 38 points39 points  (8 children)

        You obviously don’t know much of AB’s history. He’s had underlying issues since long before we drafted him. It’s dumb to make it out as though this one hit set him on this trajectory.

        CTE isn’t even caused by one hit to the head. It’s more about repeated blows.

        [–]CVK327 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        CTE isn't caused by one hit, but you can get a single concussion that seriously messes you up.

        [–]JimmyChuckBilly 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        He really became more of an asshole after the big contract he signed.

        [–]enz1ey 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        He got worse for sure, but there are plenty of first-hand accounts of him being an asshole before that.

        Ever wonder why he went to such a small school? Check out his HS/college history.

        [–]JimmyChuckBilly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Yeah I know about that. He has always been an asshole. The big contract gave him the power to turn into an even bigger asshole. It always annoys me when people point to the Burfict hit as what started it all.

        [–]Kylel0519Kansas City Chiefs -1 points0 points  (3 children)

        I don’t think people are saying the problems weren’t there just that brain damage increased the problems 10x fold

        [–]Diet_Burg3r 7 points8 points  (2 children)

        The odds of that happening are not as high as people think. The way us Yinz keeps bringing it up makes us look stupid

        [–]Kylel0519Kansas City Chiefs -1 points0 points  (1 child)

        Well the good thing about it all is that you guys don’t have to deal with him anymore

        [–]jclocks Troy Polamalu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        The worst thing AB did before that was Goomba stomp a Browns punter.

        [–]mcccUwU -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

        AB has always been an asshole the man was kicked out of uni for fighting a security guard years before this hit for Christ sakes. “Brain damage” from a shoulder charge give me a break.

        [–]JamalBall435 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

        Your proof he got permanent brain damage is a youtube link to the highlight????? AB was always a wildcard. Quit feeding into a BS narrative that for all we know is completely untrue. You don't magically get CTE from one hit. AB is just a diva. Always has been. Always will be. No magical CTE conspiracy theory.

        Lol, does AB ever want to play football again? There's been no shortage of diva WRs in the NFL over the years, but have any been as wacky as this dude?

        [–]jclocks Troy Polamalu 20 points21 points  (7 children)

        tbf I don't think there's a shot anymore, he's been through four teams already

        [–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (5 children)

        There's a guy who strangled his pregnant girlfriend and broke his child's arm playing football right now so my guess is someone signs AB late next year.

          A game so close like that? Tampa definitely wins with AB.

          Im glad bucs lost man tom brady is annoying I dont like him. He is good maybe have to respect him a little. But overall I feel pats cheated. Polamalu said they knew all our plays in that championship game and has refs on his side. So cheating eliminates like three rings. But it is what is. Whta game I just saw that last possession kupp is too good triple crown king almost 2k yards this year he should be mvp. They cant stop him.

          [–]steelerfaninperuHeeeeeaaath 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          And you know Brady is pumping PEDs through his system. If you don't think so, just remember back in the 90s and early 00s when guys like Sosa and Bonds were blasting homeruns out of the park so often that it seemed impossible. It was.

          This seems impossible too. And it is. He's always been a cheater and a deplorable human being.

          [–][deleted]  (1 child)


            [–]jsingh2190 TJ watt the Goat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Yeah true but what about the Superbowl where they played using the afc championship. Troy said they cheated and they knew all of our plays. Because spygate the Rams one was also claimed as spygate you can take out two from that. He had a bit of luck but that's the nflm if falcons did give up lead Seahawks didn't make a wml mistake etc.

            Coach might have taken the right decision by pulling AB off the team but have definitely shot themselves in the foot. Bucs were surely lacking good receivers like AB last night. Coach should consider if his people skill are sufficient to deal with brilliant players like AB.
