    When there's an issue, they usually sit a guy for first series “@hannable84: Inferring it was disciplinary related?”

    Greg A. Bedard ‏@GregABedard
    Belichick said Rivera starting instead of Spikes was because of injury. For 5 plays? Yeah, right.

    Mike Reiss ‏@MikeReiss
    Mike Rivera played the first series at MLB before Brandon Spikes came on and played that spot in the base D the rest of the night.

    Bedard seems to insinuate so

    Spikes does let his stupid side show once in a while. Probably late to a meeting or something. Dumbass.

    Word up is that Spikes, ever the prankster since uber jokster Light retired, substituted one of HIS vids for SF game film during a team review session.

    Hilarity ensued. Belichick was not amused.

    Belichick benched Welker for a series in a playoff game because of foot references during a presser. This wouldn't be surprising in the least.

    I don't think you're being harsh enough here.

    Does he do things like jumping to conclusions that run counter to the stated line of reasoning?

    IDK, I might believe that Spikes was on the bench because of injury and the Pats' defense was such a disaster on the 49ers' opening drive that Belichick was forced to put Spikes back in the opening line up. I am tired of the media manufacturing drama.

    Not a big deal unless revealed otherwise, IMO. Seems like a pretty slight disciplinary action, if anything.

    We all know Spikes is a mercurial fellow but I do think BB thinks quite highly of him.

    It can be debated whether Spikes was punished on the opening series or not, but it can not be debated that Spikes is really beat up. You can see it in his play and how he moves gingerly at times. In practice he is on the bike.

    But last night, all of the nickel snaps went to Hightower. Spikes played base only it appeared, which to me is a good thing for now. Spikes needs to be healthy.
