    I guess we all knew it was coming. The good news is there's no chance of him suffering a season-ending injury in training camp now.

    I'm curious as to why BB is out talking to/e-mailing reporters at 11:00 at night. :D

    4 weeks of preseason, then the Bills and Jets. Hopefully he'll be ready no later than Week 3.

    I dunno...maybe a hidden agenda involved like busting the Herald's chops for hiring baseball reporter wannabe to cover his 3 TIME CHAMPION football team. Or putting his picture on page 1 recently as part of an Inside Track hatchet job. Or maybe he just wants to prove that if you don't have an agenda you can cover this team for the Globe and still have access in Foxboro. :D

    Why couldn't they have told us this the day BEFORE Rodney came back? "Starting at Middle Linebacker for your New Engand Patriots... Barry Gardner?"

    Once again Felger couldn't wait to tout the "it could be longer" line. I figure if he's back by the Denver game I'll take it. They managed to beat the Raiders, Steelers and Falcons last year without him (losing to Carolina, Chargewrs and Broncos). 2 of the 3 wins were on the road so I think they can handle Buffalo and the Jets.

    Well, as long as it is the preseason, then I think we can survive.

    But the mounting injuries better not be the harbinger for another league leading IR list.

    I'm sure we won't know anymore details. If it's just a cast and heal, it shuldn't take too long. If they had to put in pins, then it will be longer.

    That is my total medical knowledge on this subject.

    So I guess it really is sore. I'm stunned by the honesty.

    It could be worse but it is not good, it highlights the lack of depth at LB and the fact the an aging LB core has not had any infusion of new blood. LBs have basically been ignored in the draft and free agency since Colvin was signed in 2003. It is confusing considering decent LBs can be had in the 3rd, 4th rounds of the draft.

    I am on a bit of a roller-coaster ride with this team, I still see the play-offs but don't see enough to say "Championship caliber"

    Well, the Pats could always go Vrabel-Brown-Beisel-Colvin for the first few weeks of the season...

    Oh ****...that's right...

    Like who?
    Barry Gardner
    Monty Beisel
    Chad Brown
    Larry Izzo


    Who is this mystery back-up linebacker of immense proportions?

    That was clearly said tongue-in-cheek.
