    I do think the injury report is a joke. But the way that that's worded struck me kind of strange, it says:

    "Gruden said that he never intended to let Garcia play in either of the two games he has missed since suffering the injury."

    That doesn't say Garcia couldn't go, it just said that Gruden wouldn't have let him. Maybe it's one of those "if it were a playoff game he'd play" type deals. So perhaps physically he was 50/50 but Gruden didn't want to risk it and hold him for the playoffs.

    For what it's worth, Garcia doesn't look like he's unable to play when they show him, so I think the "if it were a big game" thing is true. On the other hand, Bucs-Saints was a big game...

    ahh well, the injury report system is iffy. Didn't Belichick say something about not being a doctor, or whatever? That goes for the other coaches, too.

    As for the wagering thing, people could have knowledge to wager money on the counterfeit spread against the Saints too, and Tampa won.

    Does this not give TB a "competetive advantage" over their opposing teams? If so then I would expect the Commish to come down hard on them since there have been warnings and dare I say maybe a memo on this. Oh wait this one will be excused by the "everyone does it" reasoning, just like signal stealing....oh wait someone was punished for the signal stealing.
