Butkus was on ESPN radio with Mike and Mike interesting points 1. Thinks Favre > Starr all time. 2. If the Bears cannot win the championship he'll root for the hated Packers because he loves the way the Favre plays the game and appreciates his love for the game. That's pretty huge for an Ex-Bear to say. 3. Loves watching the Patriots because they are inventive and create new ways of doing things in place of just following current trends. 4. Thinks the Pats are a class organization and that it starts at the top with Kraft. 5. Thinks the spy gate is laughable and said the Packers and Bears were looking for these edges decades ago. Related a story where a player said to Hallas that there was something shiny coming out of a warehouse window across the street and Hallas had them search the building before continuing practice. Schefter on EEI. 1. Chances of Vick playing again 10% 2. Latest marijuana incident might affect his plea bargain. 3. Latest marijuana incident killed any credibility from his apology. 4. If the Patriots play the way they can they will win every game. 5. Easterbrook is on an island and although some people around the league wish more video-gate evidence would be found nobody has anything beyond idle gossip. 6. He feels Cincy is one of the games the Pats should be most worried about. 7. If given the choice between Moss/Welker or CJ/TJ he would take Moss/Welker because they work different parts of the field and because Moss is on another level. 8. He has long been a fan of Welker and has been arguing with Marshall Faulk about how good Welker is since Welker was a Fin. Marshall still doesn't get it.
