    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.

    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..

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    We didn't care about the draft? Look at the last two drafts. Not very good at all. We better keep parlaying draft picks into the Randy Moss's and Wes Welker's of the world, because obviously Pioli is in a MAJOR SLUMP with his draft selections.:mad:

    AD to outside to replace Colvin, maybe, and Brown/Seau/Bruschi inside?

    BB isn't a big fan of waiting for guys to get healthy during the season. The fact he stuck it out with Ted Washington for 7 weeks in 2003 when he broke his leg is amazing when you look back on it.

    I knew we were fucked when Andrea Kramer was boasting about how healthy we were during the pre-game.

    Oh.

    A big loss and a great feeling gain.

    Now Alexander and Chad Brown are the main backups at LB? And Pierre Woods, I guess. I suspect we'll see more and more 4-3 looks with Colvin gone.

    Good to see Troy back, though.

    Oh good god. We waived Kareem Brown, not because he sucked, but because we needed a place for the other Brown.

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

    Brown is an OLD. They tried the inside experiment with him acouple of seasons back and it failed miserably. This is terrible news about Colvin however, (with all due respect) how much worse would Brown be on the outside? I mean Colvin hasn't really shown up that much this year and OLB is Brown's natural position.

    Chad Brown, ugh. :eek:
