So ronery

Oh, uh, hey Tarvaris...what are you doing here?

I tried to call you. I don't know, maybe you were in a tunnel or something.

There's only one tunnel in Minneapolis?

Look, T, we need to talk. I didn't want you to find out like this. There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it.

We're just not working out.

...yeah, I'm here with Gus. Yeah. Yep, Gussy Gus. I don't know, I guess he just makes me feel safe. But that's not any of your business anymore, T.

Look, T, really...T, stop it. No, it's not. No, don't say that. Look, it's me, ok? It's me, not you. Look at me: it's really me. You're a great guy, really. We're just in different places right now---I've got this great D-line, and a chance to let Bryant McKinnie beat on opposing ends like they stole something, and I just can't see you in my life anymore. I just, I feel like I need to move on, just make a clean break and move on.

No, T, stop. T, look...look, this isn't easy for me either. I'm serious! I am being serious right now, T. You think this is easy? I tried, and I tried, and I just tried so hard... I tried to be there for you, because I know you're going through a lot, and I know how hard you're working through your progressions and I know you really try hard in the film room, but it's just not working, T, it's just not enough. I'm not strong enough, and you deserve someone who can be what you need them to be. You can't give me the sound decision-making I need, and I can't give you the minute and a half you need in the pocket to find an open man.

Oh I knew you'd bring that up, I just knew it! Look, they're talking about him not working as hard under the new kid as he did under Brady, do you really think you could have handled him? Do you? Honestly, T, you are so immature sometimes... My relationship with him is none of your business, ok? That was ancient history, I never even thought of him when I was with you...

Sidney Rice is a great wide re---wow, really? That's how you feel. Well, I wish you'd said something before.

Didn't I get you that nice Berrian? Didn't you say you loved that?

Look, I really didn't want it to be like this. I have to go now. It's just really hard for me to see you, and I hope you can understand that. T, you broke my heart, but you know I hope you find happiness. I have some nice friends with the Argos and the Eskies I could talk to, and...no, I'm not patronizing you. I've gotta go. Goodbye, T.

Hi Gus. (kiss on the cheek) No, just an old flame. Don't worry about it. What were we talking about before?
