I love you BB. You're the funnest.
I predict he'll still be probable 5 years from now
I know everyone thinks that Belichick is screwing with the league injury reporting rules, but isn't there another explanation why Brady is on the report every week?
Based on all the crap BB took about fudging with the injury reports, maybe he put strict rules on who goes on and how they are reported.
If the trainer touches you (in a hopefully professional way) you are on the injury report as probable.
If you can't do everything that would typically be asked of you in practice, you are questionable.
If you miss more than 1 practice that week for injury treatment, you are doubtful or out.
If the league complains, he shows them his policy (that he complies with 100% of the time) and asks what more do they want.
While other quarterbacks are doing drills at the end of practice (kneeldowns or some other such nonsense), Brady slips off to the trainers and gets his shoulder treated. Thus..."Missed part of practice" and "Probable". Not screwing with the league, though Belichick likely thinks these reports are a serious waste of time.
Bill does have a hard time with interpretations doesn't he?
You know what he doesn't have trouble with? Winning. Funny how that works.
