    Isn't this the same as the Burt guys report?

    ETA: Welcome back, Troy! As for Colvin, yes it stinks that he's gone for the year. However, AD has looked better at OLB than ILB in recent weeks and I think BB agrees as the Bruschi/Seau ILB combo has seen much more playing time than any ILB combo with AD lately. AD in Colvin's spot will look great as long as both he and Vrabel remain healthy. This isn't like going from Colvin to TBC.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Kareem Brown released - not sure if he'll make it to the Practice Squad.

    Crappy day.

    Huge loss in Colvin. Worst possible news, other than waiving Troy.

    Colvin hurt is big... Chad Brown can not replace Monty Beisel let alone Colvin.. Good to see Brown back, but the Karreem Brown goes to prove that the Pats did not care about this draft..

    So glad Troy is back; bummer for Colvin (a broken arm maybe?); Chad Brown - yikes. AD better pick up his game. Go PATS!!

    Re: Troy activated, Colvin to IR, Chad Brown signed

    come on, can't believe Colvin is on IR, I had a feeling this was coming though. Sucks. We need Junior to play all season, that is going to be huge. Colvin was playing so good this season, has he played his last game as a Patriot?

    Re: Troy activated, Colvin to IR, Chad Brown signed

    Lets hope Thomas (and Seau and Bruschi) can stay healthy.

    Also a little weirdo factor: Colvin's 2003 season ended with an injury he suffered against the EAGLES.

    Good to have Troy back but it really sucks that Colvin is gone for the season.

    Re: Troy activated, Colvin to IR, Chad Brown signed

    We can not afford anymore injuries to the LBs. Wasn't Colvin our fastest linebacker? And did he really look that badly injured? Seems kinda quick to IR him, thought maybe we could have waited on that move. I doubt anyone was calling Chad Brown.

    Could be very possible unless he takes a cut in pay.

    Re: Troy activated, Colvin to IR, Chad Brown signed

    I'm guessing this means more playing time for Seau and Bruschi, with Thomas moving outside. Or does it mean more time for Woods outside or Alexander inside?

    Re: Troy activated, Colvin to IR, Chad Brown signed

    Crap, this is the worst news. Rosie was playing great this year and loosing him is going to be a big blow. I think we are going to see a AD move to the outside with Teddy and Junior playing the middle. Vrabs will stay on the other side.

    Man, this sucks.
