I'm gonna tell you what I really think I like about Mondays.

Harvin-gate continues; Bryant back to top form | Sportspress Northwest
A big dude whose Texas drawl is much softer than his play, Bryant’s relative silence about the nagging injury created surprise among many, including right tackle Breno Giacomini, who had no idea he was less than 100 percent. The pair regularly compete against each other in one-on-one drills and during scrimmages. “No, I didn’t even know he was hurt,” Giacomini said Thursday. “I swear to God. I couldn’t tell any difference.” That’s the way Bryant prefers it. “It was something I had to deal with at a crucial point of the season last year,” he said. “I’m just glad that it’s behind me now, and I can really just hit it running this year.”
