    No details from Tom Brady - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com

    Some nice praise for Cassel.

    As for the knee, he may not have any new details, but I think his presence on the East coast is indicative of not having another surgery, of the infection having cleared, of being back on track.

    Knock on wood, he'll be ready to participate in mini camp or training camp. The surgery was October, the infection set him back presumably 4-6 weeks. The typical ACL rehab for QBs is within the 6-9 month time frame, in all honesty, coming more on the 6 month side of things (see McNabb, Palmer & Rivers). So we're talking about 7 months from the start of October, which by my count might even get him back by passing camps.

    FWIW, I read a post at Patriots Insiders, in the insiders lounge claiming that their sources say that Brady will be ready by training camp next year, or as soon as minicamp. Again, FWIW. Until I see Brady running around on the field, I take this stuff with a grain of salt.

    looking at that picture, either it was a bad photo or he looks
    a lot thinner and not healthy. He looks like he's aged years.
    again it could just be a bad picture. IMO

    My prediction he will be at minicamp and participating in some way (probably not at everything). Word is he is back on track and rehabbing. If true, there is very little reason to believe that he will not be back practicing day one at training camp. Carson Palmer with the same injury plus a dislocated knee and cartlidge damage was back on the practice field faster than the difference in time from today and the start of training camp next year. So was Philip Rivers.

    It looks like there is a light shining on his face. I wouldn't read too much into him "not looking healthy" based on that picture. He was thin this year before his injury. He said that he dropped about 20lbs before the start of this season. So he may be a little lighter than he was before he got injured, but he was already much leaner from the 2007 before he got injured.

    Besides, he can easily regain the weight lost by July of 2009. Anyone could put on 10-30lbs of muscle 8-9 months if they worked out like an athlete does.

    Could be the lighting. If you look closely, his entire face is illuminated slightly.

    I'm more interested in Ernie Adams developing a force field to protect his holiness come the start of season 2009 ;)

    I'm sure TB12's rehab is progressing well and the consumate professional him being, will be ready when called.

    Actually, sign me up for the "Giselle Every Night" weight loss plan.

    It has a different connotation in Spanish. It doesn't mean dreary.

    The root is abyss. As in "deep" or "profound."

    For some reason in English, the word which comes from the Latin for deep and profound means, basically, you've sunk to the depths.

    I'm sure her friends call her Abby.
