Does anyone else find it more than just a coincidence that the normally obnoxious, loud, and never-shutting-up Bill Polian has not said a peep through all this? Not one interview on tv? Not one link to quotes attributed to him? Call me paranoid, but I have a feeling he's been a background force somehow associated with all of this and that's why he's laying low. I don't believe for one second he'd be quiet through this if he wasn't. You know damn well he'd be leading the cries. But nothing. I know a snake is at work. One other thought, wonder what Deion Branch thinks of the punishment? After all that battling for months, the pats have to return the compensation they got for him from the seahawks (in an indirect way) I mean, we have an extra pick that traces back to him, right? He's probably thinking it's justice or karma and feeling amused. But screw him too, he had zero yards in his opening game and has become not that big of a contributer to the hawks, at least certainly not a first round picks worth of contribution, and I guarentee the hawks regret making that deal already. Just goes to show BB was right that he wasn't worth what he was trying to demand. boy, these things seem big at the time, but quickly fade and are comical in retrospect a short time later.
