    On WEEI when asked if BB would activate K. Faulk and use Brady's spot for his roster spot, BB said he has a one day exemption for Faulk and that Brady has not been placed on the IR.

    I am not saying he won't be - but BB did not add he was going too......

    I am just saying.

    Yeah, i heard that on the ride home. However, the rest of the conversation revolved around Cassel and his grasp of the offense, etc. etc. I'll bet dollars to donuts that TB is on IR by tomorrow :(

    I still think we win 10+ games without him, just alot closer, like the 2001-2006 seasons...

    STATEMENT FROM THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ON TOM BRADY

    "After extensive tests this morning, it was revealed that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's left knee, which was injured in the first quarter of yesterday's game, will require surgery. He will be placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2008 season."

    I heard it also...it wasn't that I didn't believe Brady was going on IR. It was funny the way that BB said Brady hadn't been placed on IR. Why would he say that? Just typicall BB.

    They are making other moves..there's no rush..they will not waste a space on a QB that is having surgery..

    Maybe this gives credence to Deebs first post:http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=119584

    " Hmm. I'm starting to think this whole "injured Tom Brady" thing is all just another one of Bill Bellichek’s nefarious schemes.

    Brady never blew out his knee. Bellichek is just trying to make other teams take the Patriots lightly. I swear, that guy’ll do anything to gain even the slightest advantage in gameplanning.

    Watch, the Pats will introduce their new QB this week against the Jets. It’ll be a guy named “Brom Tradey,” and he’ll look just like Tom Brady, only with a big, thick mustache that looks sort of scotch-taped on."

    Bring on Brom Tradey:D

    As I noted in other threads, note the wording. No specific time was given for the move.

    when we place Brady on the IR, does that free up his cap number for this season.

    If it does, are we allowed to say, sign Wilfork to an extension, give him a big Signing Bonus, and place all of that Bonus this year. Obviously, this will be tremendous for years to come because the cap hit will already have taken place, giving us more room to pick up guys. it could be a very nice, unintended result of bradys injury

    So has Brady actually been put on IR yet? I'm praying Belichick is pulling more of his injury report shenanigans again, putting out reports that it's a torn ACL, then never actually IRing him, then Tom magically comes out of the tunnel around Week 6. Wishful thinking.

    Yes, wishful thinking. Not even BB would do that.

    We are getting info third and fourth hand.

    If there is a conflict between the medical people with most saying this is season ending but a few that saying that might be ready to go in 6 weeks or it might be a season ender but they need a couple of more days to be sure. And I was BB I would want to make damn sure there is no way TB is going to be healthy before December before I put him on IR. Otherwise I save a roster spot.

    When the Patriots issued a statement that Brady was done for the year and going to be placed on IR you considered that 3rd and 4th hand?

    If you just looked at the Patriots official website yesterday it said Brady will be placed on IR. And they don't post anything that isn't etched in stone.
