TB12 & BB
Tom and Phil,
Love the podcast, I listen twice a week, thank you for your great work. One thought as the playoffs progress, we learned during the regular season how much the Patriots and BB missed TB12. I think moving forward TB12 may learn how much he misses BB, given the upcoming opponents for the Bucs. The road to the SB may include Breese / Saints. Rogers/ Packers and Mahomes / Chiefs.
Keep up the great work.
Stick to football
