Tony Dungy, Bookie

May 7, 2007

Peter King:

If I’m Tony Dungy, I have my perfect pre-training-camp speech. “No one thinks we’re going to win it again,” he could say. “Look at Vegas. All you did last year was answer every challenge, and all our major pieces are still in place, and we had a great draft. And the oddsmakers start you at 6-1 to win the Super Bowl, drop you to 7-1 and now you’re 8-1? If that isn’t the biggest lack of respect I’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.”

I really doubt the bible-thumping Dungy is watching the Vegas line on his team that closely, but who knows.
