    Andrews is the master, the Yoda of all that is Athlete Injuries.

    He's on the sidelines for EVERY Redskins game and is consulted on almost every big time surgery that happens in sports.

    From his mouth to Gods ears. This is very good news.

    Now will fespn actually run this story this morning, or will I have to listen to 4 hrs of how the Pats are doomed like yesterday? I know I know, why the hell am I listening to those idiots in the morning anyway. :rolleyes:

    Well, if Dr. James Andrews is optimistic that this isn't going to be a major setback and unlike most of the people commenting about this he has intimate knowledge of the case AND is an expert, it is good enough for me. I take his opinion over all the unnamed sources who say it is bad.

    Bah, ESPN will say he had his leg amputated and the Pats will be charged with Bionic-Gate this time next year, when Brady scrambles for 1200+ yards...

    Who needs draft picks in 2010 anyways? :cool:

    re: Tom Brady getting Better! (merged)

    Adam Schefter is on WEEI right now and he said he spoke to someone very close to Brady and they said the treatment is "routine" and they don't expect any set back. He took a shot at ESPN saying that their story about the Pats being upset is bogus and said the media is out of control.

    Honestly, I want BB to go on an incentive laden tirade at ESPN someday, but I'll settle for the press release from yesterday which was a more subtle approach.

    I guess Brady gave Andrews permission to talk about his medical issues?

    Schefter does have info pipelines into the Pats org. Now he could just be preserving that access by parroting the company line, but I think he's speaking to the facts.

    And, just to continue the theme that Dr. ElAttrache knows what he's doing:

    Apparently Andrews was on EEI yesterday saying he often consults with ElAttrache, asking him for his thoughts. I'm sure its a back and forth, just getting each others opinions.

    They're both at the top of the field. Is Andrews "better" ? Maybe, I don't know. But, clearly, this was, and is, a top notch doctor.

    Will Carroll of BaseballProspectus and SI.com said that. He does know both doctors very well though.
