    Crap. Can you play with something like that? It sounds pretty painful and I can see where the coaching staff would want to be careful. What bad luck we are having this year. Could he wear some kind of protective vest?

    Woo hoo, finally something I can speak to from experience.

    I tore some rib cartilage in a pickup game, and can tell ya, from the POV of a mere mortal, I couldn't have done anything near playing again for at least a month. Now here are the differences - I was 30, Maroney is 22; Maroney is an athlete, I am a slob; and who knows how much tear I had vs. what he has.

    Anyway it hurts like a summa*****. Yeah rest him.

    McGahee played with busted ribs. I say sit him tomorrow and bring him back next week to get ready for a playoff run. I'd like to see him more of a receiving rb for the next couple weeks then give him more carries.

    I don't know how they are going to have good passing game. They'll probably have a functional one. I will be shocked if either Watson or Jackson plays, which leaves Gaffney, Brown, and Reche. I'm in agreement to put Faulk in the slot.

    I will curious to see the matchup of Light versus Mario Williams.

    Dave Thomas needs to at least give a couple fo receptions if Watson does not play.

    I expect the offense to be like pulling teeth with sporadic rythm.

    I hope Bam does play, but wouldn't they activate him to the team from the practice squad today?

    And on both tackles, it will be a good test, they both played subpar last week

    Agree. We don't need him to get into the playoffs, and there isn't any way we are getting a bye no matter how well he runs. Rest him up and have him fully recovered for the playoffs.

    We should do fine with the running game. We have Dillon, Faulk and Evans to carry the ball, and Patrick "Pitch-the-Pigskin" Pass is safely on IR.

    I remember a couple years back when Travis Henry was on the Bills that he had this injury (not sure of the degree of each), but I know it kept Travis out for a bit of time.

    As long as we make the playoffs, we're probably the #4 seed anyway so it's not a big deal to me. This will be 2 weeks since it happened, by the first playoff game it'll be 5 - now it's a big deal that he's better by then.

    Re-reading, if Maroney wanted to play last week, he must not be feeling too bad . . .

    He's a 22 year old male athelete suffering from severe testosterone poisoning.
    Let the docs and BB make the call, not the kid.

    I agree completely. All I meant was that if it hurt so much that he could barely get out of bed, he wouldn't have been trying to get on the field. It's a good indication that it's not THAT bad.

    I don't blame Tomase at all - he's just doing his job, and doing it well - but how the F did Maroney's condition get out? It would be much better for that injury not to be disclosed. Unusual in N.E. If it's from an official source, my guess is he won't be playing anyway. Or that it's a lie.

    Good point. Don't want to have opposing DL/LB hitting him high. Make him tentative and his effectiveness is lessened.

    I know reporters live to report things no one else knows, but what is the point of telling this to the world? Other than garnering some envy points from other reporters, I mean.

    They always talk about a right to know, and they have a right to expose, but when they do, you have to look at them as people who are deliberately doing something detrimental to the team. Just because it is their job doesn't make it right.

    Tomase is not an employee of the NE Patriots. It is not his concern whether something is or is not detrimental to the team. As an employee of the Boston Herald, his responsibility is to help sell newspapers. Tomase is consistently out in front on type of stories that the Pats franchise tries to quash, and reporting like this helps make the Herald sports section must-read for many people.

    Heck -- it got the Herald website a bunch of hits from this website, didn't it?

    That's right, he's not the PR guy for them. He was right on the Bruschi injury so until he's proven to be wrong, I'm assuming he's right.
