I was watching NEST, and Curran said that Bruschi has adimately said he will be back for week one, and that if Bruschi says it he will believe him. He thinks it is more of a result in the dissatisfaction of the non-starters performances, and an attempt to add more experienced depth. He also said that despite his age Seau is still effective, his biggest problem is if he can stay healthy. He has a much better chance of doing this if his role is in spot duty. Of the Pats writers Curran is near the top of the list of the ones I trust, so I usually greatly consider his word.
