I say my main man Aundray Bruce #93 was the best TE to ever don a Falcon Jersey. Still have mine framed with his Rookie Card.

I quit wearing jerseys when I grew up after graduating college.

Mr. Dunn's time in TB must have given him some kind inoculating effect! But he did get thrown under the bus in the whole regime change in 2008!


DeCoud on the other hand, he's put a new hex on it (#28)!

Yeah, I tried that for a while after I graduated college too but that was boring. I refuse to grow up. Life's more fun at 49 not trying to out do and impress everybody.

Roll Tide, I love that one too but haven't bought it yet. I'll get one in The Gultch this fall from the jersey girl.

Anyone can go to college and get a degree.  Leonard Pope, Reggie Ball, Jasper Sanks, Stephon Marbury all went to college.  It all depends on what you study and if you're able to utilize it.  So no, we don't know how dumb you are.
