    from today's Reiss's Pieces:

    I’d also like to thank Mr. (Robert) Kraft, Coach (Bill) Belichick and Scott Pioli and the organization of the New England Patriots for drafting me and giving me the opportunity to be the player that I have excelled to be. Hopefully I can continue to be that player here with the Seattle Seahawks and deliver as such that I did with the New England Patriots

    I saw that too. At the very least it's a grammar catastrophe. At worst, Deion now thinks he's Marvin Harrison.

    No big deal in my mind. Branch thinks he's an experienced and talented player... so he's confident. That's no surprise. I think it's a classy thank you to the team that drafted him and coached him.

    I think you're digging if you hold statements like these against the guy as being boastful, etc.

    I actually thought Branch's comments were pretty classy. No bitterness (unlike some other ex-Pats). And of course he thinks he's good -- the bank he just made proves it.

    By and large I agree with you. I don't think he meant that "excel" line to come across as it did.

    Yes.

    So thank you, Deion. There were a lot of good times and we'll always remember them.

    I thought what he said was classy. It's better than what Milloy said when he left here. And what's wrong with being confident in his abilities? Not a damn thing in my book. Good for him.

    Thanks for the memories Branch.
