    According to the BCN postgame show, Bruschi is in the air right now heading back to Boston. Not shocking, but looks like this is a long-term injury.

    It's almost comical with all these injuries. Best of luck Teddy!

    Oh nooo:( I hope it's nothing too serious but that doesn't bode well. Poor Tedy. They're dropping like flies.

    Wow.... all we need now is for Mayo and Seymour to get injured and gone will be our entire front 7.

    Au contraire, with Warren getting closer and Joker saying Vince is expected back next week, we should be alright with the DL and Mayo/Guyton/Seau at ILB. OLB is a little weak of course.

    I had turned BCN on when I went out, right as it happened. When I heard Tedy was down, my heart almost stopped. First thing that came to mind was the patch and the stroke from years ago. At least it's something that's not life threatening (still s---s considering all of the other injuries this season).

    Frankly, this is probably the least impactful (on the field) loss on the team. Seau is an upgrade over Bru.

    He was able to walk under his own power into the locker room so he could come back in a few weeks. Unluckly, we only have a few weeks left.

    This might have been an appropriate reaction circa 2001-2004, but now it's more like, eh...

    especially with Junior back in the fold.

    I agree completely. Bruschi hasn't been an impact player/playmaker for 2-3 years. He has lost more than a step - he can't cover on passing downs, he gets pushed around on running plays and he's an ineffective blitzer. I'm actually looking forward to seeing what Guyton can do with even more playing time.

    Bruschi has been one of the better blitzers on this team. Not sure what you are watching there. But, yes, he's not been the impact player he was when he was playing the Weak ILB position. But, he's been playing the strong side ILB position (Ted Johnson's old position) since he returned from his stroke.

    Guyton didn't look too good out there today. In fact, he was replaced by Colvin at one point.

    Seau and Colvin both looked good considering the fact that they had been sitting at home up until this past week.

    Man, I would think you guys wouldn't pile onto one of the greatest Patriots ever like this, on a day he was injured no less.

    Agree 1000%. I seriously am coming to despite the majority of "fans" on this board. Every imbecile spouts off and makes themselves look foolish (e.g. Today's Game Thread).

    yeah hes not strong enough to do so, his strength was a big reason he went undrafted. Thats why I wonder if he could be a starting ILB for the Pats, I love him in on passing situations and 3rd down but Im not convinced hes a starter.

    That's a technique thing, though. I was watching his form for several plays and he was standing up too tall. He was letting the blocker come to him and not locking the guy out. He wasn't getting off blocks. He was trying to stand stout like Vrabes when he should have been attacking the edge and sealing with his hips. He clearly had his head spinning. I don't think he's ever played a role like that before schematically. Maybe he'll improve with time. Regardless, his problems weren't of the athletic nature.

    Guys like McGinest and Vrabel had an advantage because of size and they're long wingspan so much that OL can't grab onto them easily.

    Guyton isn't strong. He needs about two seasons of gaining strength. In the meantime we can find a use for him.

    It's pretty ridiculous that we have this problem. LB should have been addressed several seasons ago isntead of using a first rounder on watson or maroney.

    now we're stuck with backups and guys past their prime playing.

    the whole excuse of finding a guy who could play LB in the system is ridiculous.

    Ah. Too bad. My guess is if he's done for the year, that'll be it for him. He'll join Harrison in retirement.

    Re: Bruschi headin home

    Mayo/Guyton/Seau does not leave me feeling warm and content. One good player, an overachieving practice squad guy and a retiree.

    Say it with me, people: Maualuga... MAU - A - LU - GA

    He's not falling that far, and I'll trust the Pats pick over anyone elses here, unless it's an early offense pick.

    Re: Bruschi headin home

    It's about the same to me as this time last week with Mayo/Guyton/Bruschi. I like Maualuga too but I don't think we're going to have two #1 picks at ILB even if he made it to us.
