    Interesting article in the NYT about a new therapy for injuries, which if I'm reading it right, could eventually make surgeries unnecessary for muscle/ligament tears:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/17/sports/17blood.html?emc=eta1

    They talk about ElAttrache doing the therapy for Saito, and it possibly being why he came back strong.

    Ward cites therapy as the reason why he could play in the SB.

    Given the news went from dire to cautiously optimistic in a short time span, I have to wonder if they injected TB with any of this or used this therapy on him...

    Anyway, given ElAttrache took a beating after TB's infection, thought maybe I'd give the guy some props since it looks like he knows what he's doing after all.

    Very interesting stuff.

    And after reading the article, I would now be surprised if this isn't ultimately revealed to be the reasoning behind Brady's choice of surgeon.
