    If Teddy broke his scaphoid, it could be bad news. I broke my scaphoid a couple of years ago and I was in a cast for three miserable months.

    The good news is a LB could still play in a cast if need be. Sure, he won't be making all of the ints but he would still be effective.

    didn't Bruschi come back from a stroke? The words "Injured Scaphoid" probably make him giddy.

    Ya, he gets to sit out of camp in this heat wave, not bad.

    He will study plays and film, ride the bike, and be another coach off the field.

    This injury, knock on wood, will not be a big deal.

    I am amazed by how Tomase and the Herald are " all over " this story, while the Globe barely mentions it. I have a feeling it may be the Herald on a witchhunt.

    I got the opinion from Tomase's article today, chatting with Dr. Morgan, that IF is was the scaphoid, it COULD be bad. Almost like they were just predicting what it MIGHT be and the consequences of that.

    We all know that if we were playing a big game on Sunday that Tedy would be front and center on D.

    I found the "story". I find this very humorus...here is the quote from the doctor interviewed for the "story"

    “I used to hate when people would second-guess with no idea of reality,” Morgan said. “For these fractures, you really have to be cautious. If it doesn’t heal properly, it can be a huge problem, even in Joe Blow, never mind a high-performance athlete.”

    "Morgan stressed that he has not examined Bruschi himself."

    Wow great you have not even been in the same room as the player yet you are making a diagnosis on what "could be" the problem? This would be why maybe the Globe hasn't picked up the story since it is 100% conjecture it seems. Typical media trhowing whatever they can against the wall and see if it sticks.

    It would still bother him though. Remember Watson's great play against the Jags in the playoffs? That all started because Mike Peterson was wearing a cast and could only use one arm to grab Watson with and he broke away. Plus, when you watch Bruschi, he uses his hands a lot to fight off blockers. Hey, he's a great player but I don't think there is any way he's just as good if he's wearing a cast. Not an inside linebacker.

    By the way, how come if Thomase does some work and breaks a story, it's a witch hunt but if Reiss does it he's the hardest working journalist in Boston? If Reiss wrote this story, you would all be praising him. I say give Thomase some props for this one. He finally got off his fat ass and did some work for a change. Just because you don't like what the story is about, it doesn't mean he made it up.

    Thomase exaggerates and makes stuff up for a sensational story.

    See last year's season ending calf tear for Bruschi. He only missed a game, I think.

    With the Bills and Jets leading off our schedule, we don't need Bruschi for 6-7, thankfully. We will need him for Denver then Cincy and Miami but hopefully the worst case would be to miss those three tough games then we have our bye and don't play again until 10/22, something like 10 weeks from now.
