This stuff does not go over well in opposing teams locker rooms. It's seriously a real sign of disrespect. The week of the season opening Bills game and Briggs skips a practice? You feel that confident bro?

If Marrone has any clue he will use it as motivation for the offense and the team in general. Parcells and Belchick certainly would. Heck, they'd make stuff up to get their players going. This is downright "in your face" disrespect.

Briggs is on his last legs.  The rest is probably the best thing for him at this stage.

The way this kinda thing usually works for the Bills:
Lance Briggs DPOW with two sacks, one FF, one INT, one Safety, and 11 solo tackles, 2 for loss.

Finally, motivation!!


Actually, I'm sure the players couldn't care less, and have more important concerns.

Ask yourself this question...would Briggs take monday practice off of game week to open a new BBQ restaurant if he was playing the Patriots?

You may think stuff like this doesn't bother players, but that Jets game last year is proof to the contrary.

If there are any Bills players on this team that this doesn't bother regardless to which degree, then I don't want those players on the Bills. It's not a huge deal, it's just the principle of being disrespected like that.

This can be looked upon as a sign of disrespect for the Bills O, bit I see it more as a lack of discipline. Media outlets around Chicago are critical of Trestman for excusing Briggs to open his restaurant in California:

Not a fan of the Tribune's website.  They want you to pay to read the article.  Do people still pay money to read the news?

I think this calls for a BBQ "burger flipper" end zone TD celebration.

Aww, I miss Stevie right about now. He'd already be working on that one.

I read that he is known for being kind of a soft coach.

I love the part of the article where it says it doesn't matter whether he practices or not because their defense is going to suck either way.

But then they said they had the Bills this week, so it didn't matter anyway.
