    Thats encouraging.....hopefully the starters are the ones who are the "most"


    This is kind of ambigious are they saying they are included in the most or are they saying they are included in the missing.

    I love BB. He never answers a question directly.

    That is TOTAL AWESOME!!!!!!

    (I know I am following training camp WAY to closely when my mood oscillates wildly with the daily PUP reports.)

    True fat. However, I completely agree with his approach in this case (and many others). So many times, there simply isn't a clear-cut yes or no answer, and if he were to give one, and then something changes that later on, the bottom-dwelling sports writers (and they KNOW who they are) would be all over him for "hiding the truth" or "lying" or whatever.

    Better to respond like this then to toss any more chum to the sharks :cool:

    Worse than ragging on BB, they would start murmuring that the player in question, was supposed to be back by now. So he must be lazy and dogging it... Or alternatively that he is hurt much more seriously.:rolleyes:

    I'm sure many of the newer posters here will feel much better if that list includes Shawn Crable.

    Seymour and Warren coming back to practice next week would be awesome.

    Bruschi, Whilhite, and Springs would be nice too.

    Great, so that means Crable must be out for the year.

    Can anybody give insight to this comment:

    The one disappointment so far has been Shawn Springs, who has missed a lot of practices and is struggling to get out of his stance.

    Re: Belichick: Most of the missing players are "relatively close" to returning.

    You've gotta be kidding me.

    There is little doubt in my feeble mind that, had Pollard done the exact same thing to Payaton, the zebras would've thrown an after-the-fact flag on Pollard, and a "point of emphasis" would have been announced before Week 2.

    P.S.: I wouldn't get too excited about any injured players returning; all Bill is saying is that none of them are dead.
