    Hope it's just for bodies and doesn't mean Vince and Warren are missing the Panty Raiders game. Maybe the missing practice help was the ingredient issue last time? If not, it's concerning because other than activations require IR's. If it was just LB for LB, they'd only need one. No seems to know for sure if the PS went to SD or not.

    **edit: Mike fixed the post and several posters are now claiming they knew the facts all along. ;)

    they can just use a 1-5-5 alignment. that will confuse the young QB.

    Dude, counting the number of men on the defense would confuse JaMarcus Russel.

    Re: Obviously comething's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    did the team stay on the west coast?

    if so then who would they practice against?

    it would make no sense to keep them home.

    I don't find it that alarming

    I don't think Russell is playing - He has an ankle injury

    Looks like Walter will probably be the starting QB

    I'm pretty sure if they were supposed to be there, they'd have gone last time and this time earlier.

    Good catch.
    Clearly an extraordinarily injury depleted squad. Besides Rosie & Junior need days off to go get their Soc Security checks.

    Last I heard, Russell only had bruising on his ankle and sounded like he was a go for the remaining games.

    I don't know about the last CA vacation but these guys aren't traveling for a road game, they're traveling for a road practice - which makes sense to me for the PRACTICE squad.

    Re: Obviously comething's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    No, the team doesn't usually stay on the road for two weeks and the last time things didn't work out so well. I think it has to do more w/having a "normal" practice week than injuries. If injuries were the only reason they were flying these guys out they would only do it with LB's Angelo Craig and Darrell Robertson along with S Mark Dillard and DT Titus Adams and forget about OL Dan Connolly, P Tom Malone, WR Maurice Price and C Ryan Wendel.

    Yeah, I mentioned that possibility in the OP.

    Re: Obviously something's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    Do we know if they traveled last time?? OR did not...I do not remember...that was awhile ago...maybe this is the change....do not find that all odd...maybe with injuries to the 53 they need more bodies...BUT I would ask if they traveled before.

    Hard to say, just seemed odd that Mike pointed it out if it happened that way last time.

    Re: Obviously something's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    Price's transcript of the conference call really lessen's the intrigue of Reiss' note:

    Whoa. That's huge. lol

    He did go into some detail on the procedure of working a guy out while ont he road though. Probably just answering a question, but you never know.

    Re: Obviously something's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    Q: Do you have your practice squad guys out there joining you?
    BB: Yes, they will. They will be here.

    This pisses me off about the sorry state of 'journalism' today. These guys are PAID to ask questions.

    How about follow-up...

    Did you bring out the PS last trip?

    If no...
    What is different this time? Injuries or trying a different tack this time?

    BB may or may not respond but at least ask an intelligent follow up.

    Re: Obviously comething's up, the P-Squaders are en-route to Cali.

    Oh please, you titled the thread "Obviously's something's up" which clearly pooh-poohed the (obvious to most people) possibility that the reason they desired to have the practice squad was... they were practicing. Unlike all other road games except SD.
