    No, he just brought it [Brady not being ready for opening week] up as a possibility, which it was - and still probably remains, albeit the likelihood becomes less and less as Brady continues to rehab w success. Fortunately, it seems like Brady has gotten back on track at this point - I'm taking TB's word at face value. Others took Curran's words, exaggerrated and expounded on them towards a doomsday scenario, but it wasn't Curran himself.

    Based on what's been said on this board, it was a lot more than that. He also suggested:

    I recall the interview Curran had with Dan Patrick about a month ago in which he made it sound definite that Brady could not and would not start the season. I don't recall the exact wording but that was clearly the message he delivered.

    Any way to contact him?

    Edit: never mind

    i definitely remember him being pretty adamant that if the pats wound up franchising cassel it would be as brady insurance, NOT to trade him for picks.

    With all due respect, that's not true. No one I read, and I read a helluva lot, "exaggerated... Curran's...words (regarding) a doomsday scenario..." It was Curran himself and any attempt to claim otherwise is revisionist history.

    No. Curran said that IF Brady were to be forced to deal with the laxity, it would threaten the 2009 season. It's clear now that while there remains looseness in the ligament, that is not something that Brady and the team felt the need to undergo additional treatments/surgeries for. And, given that Brady keeps pronouncing himself on-track, and assuming the stories that he's doing drills are true and accurate, there's less reason to worry that complications have forced the issue.

    I emailed Curran asking if he regretted that he may have exaggerated Brady's situation a bit and he replied with "FU".

    I think he got duped by some pissed off local doctors that did not get the chance at the surgery.

    He took them as serious well qualified sources and ran with the story.

    Oh, well. Looks like we can put all that to bed now.

    I cannot start a thread here, but the Pats just signed Tully Banta-Cain.

    I can't say I expected it, but you know he did start here at OLB one year. That says they like(d) him.

    Nice.

    I love it when reporters totally eff up a story, get it dead wrong, and then turn around and get all pissy when you call 'em out on it.

    Post of the day:rocker: Whether he got bad info or not doesn't matter. He's still the one who printed it and ran with it. Curran's "expose" was all over the sports news,then later when some conflicting reports came out he still defended it. How his screw up became the fan's fault I'll never know:rolleyes:, but if a reporter puts news out there they're fair game.

    Just ask Tom-asse and Mazz:D

    Yet they'll be the first (just ahead of fans on message boards) to be all over a player for not apologizing for something they may - or may not have - done "wrong".
