    Disable Jersey

    Would Bill Polian be the spokesperson for one of the 'several teams' whining about this?

    My bet says that BB finds a new creative method or issue to annoy the piss outa certain league butt boys.

    The best was when Cassell was listed on the report - I don't think he had been hit once that year either in garbage time in the 4th or obviously not wearing the red jersey in practice. Hilarious.

    What is with Brady's shoulder? He has been 'probable' for 2 straight years as far as I can remember - does he have soreness there or what?

    There goes all the fun.
    Pissah's right imo-BB will find a way around this one somehow. :D

    Bill Polian's was just stupid. He listed his kicker and punter as questionable. What a ******* doofus.

    I don't see that this change will make any difference. Teams can easily find out whether an opposing player has been practicing or not just by reading the news. Regardless, I'll join the consensus in saying that BB will find a way around this if the policy does actually change.

    Brady injured his shoulder during the 2002 campaign.
    Some one pissed BB off about how he does his injury report, so Brady is pre-printed on every report since.

    This is a myth spread by the local media.

    Not listing Brady on the report every week would actually be a violation of league rules. He misses parts of practice every week to rest his arm and if you miss any part of practice, you are supposed to be listed on the report. Since his shoulder surgery in 2002 they have put him on a schedule to limit his throws and keep him healthy. It is the same reason that they give him days off in training camp each year which always send this forum into a panic.

    I think Polian should be listed as Probable before every Competition Committee meeting due to "Overstrained Tearducts."

    I would say no since the Colts did the same thing all season.

    All you gotta do is lie about the amount of time the player in question practiced. Job done.

    Injury reports are the most pointless things.

    This is good for the NFL. Teams need to be honest about what players are injured. People complain about what BB and the Patriots do, look at what the Colts did last year, they took that **** to the next level, putting half their team as questionable every week.
