    Ian's Daily Blog - Despite reports on Derrick Burgess apparently contemplating retirement, it appears that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick still expects him to report at some point.

    Ian, what's the deal with all the question marks in your blog-to-topic posts? Am I the only one seeing it that way?

    Burgess needs to get in or out. Can't hold a spot for him forever.

    BB seems blindsided by this development. Not a good situation. Hope he still has Crable's cellphone #.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess ?We Expect Him To Be Here?

    Those are caused by Microsoft word quotes, apostrophes, etc. - the rss feed thing parses it wrong and question marks are in their places - it's aggravating.

    I have to manually fix them each time, and I've looked but there's no fix for it. :explative

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    I am beginning to think Favre has started a trend. I think players are starting to use the retirement card to stay away from camp. Look at Aaron Schobel. He skipped the entire offseason and camp so far under the guise of retirement considerations. Now word is he is looking for rental property in Buffalo although he still hasn't decided.

    Burgess missed training camp last year because of a hold out and I am beginning to wonder if he is doing this to miss two a days this preseason.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    I see two ways to read that.

    1) he expects at some point he will be here

    or

    2) He should be here now....I expect him to be here .......he is not end of conversation.

    I was thinking the same thing but then thought about how BB would see right through it. Weather he could do anything about it is another matter.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    Well, he could fine Burgess for every day he isn't here. Burgess is under contract. Belichick might allow him to get away with it for a period though. He has been generous with time for older veterans in the past. He never pressured Seau to rush to camp and sign. He let Phifer have a flexible schedule to see his kid in Cali.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess ?We Expect Him To Be Here?

    You can generally get around that problem by 1) removing the MSW formatting from the title, and/or 2) using a different font, one that is compatible with the RSS feed.

    Not sure if it will work, or if you've already tried that, but those are the likely culprits. Good luck. :)

    Yah but that was collusion between BB and the vets. Looks like this MIA caught BB by surprise.

    Bill probably told him to stay home to give the younger guys a chance to get some reps.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    I don't get that. My guess is that this is orchestrated.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    When was the last time Belichick really let us know what he is really thinking in a press conference. Listening to a Belichick press conference is like listening Mike Adams on the radio - he keeps talking yet he really isn't saying anything and you don't learn anything from listening.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    I think those are different cases. Burgess is fighting for a job. Remember we let him sit on the side for quite a while before even offering him a contract. This isnt a long time vet secure in his position.

    If he's "contemplating it" that means he's mentally checked out already.

    Sayonara.

    Another huge bust of a trade by BB. Not as bad as Starks, who I knew was a disaster, but I don't like giving up picks for mediocre, old guys who walk away after a year.

    His stats look decent but he's kind of old.

    Re: Belichick on Burgess 'We Expect Him To Be Here'

    If you mean that BB and Burgess planned this incident together, you would be very much mistaken. There is literally no chance of that scenario.

    BB wants the players in camp, end o story.
