    Re: Ventrone activated

    Was THAT the real time?? Anyway to be sure about that??
    Good for Bubba!!! Like to see him on kickoffs plow down some of those Colts!!
    Interesting move especially since there are a few PUPers ready for activation.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    Yeah, the "real" time. Wikipedia uses UTC time, and EDT (or EST as of tomorrow) is 5 hours behind that, or 10:38 AM. I reverted that IP's edits because, of course, nobody had reported it already. I'm guessing whoever made that edit knows Bubba personally.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    I had a feeling that we wouldn't see many of the PUP guys until after the Bye week. When they activated Seymour and Mel Mitchel and Eric Alexander got hurt, I thought that maybe the two Jacksons would be activated.
    This is definately a surprise, but good for Bubba.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    I understand..just wanted to know about that...GREAT news though!! Have always liked him..from his UFA signing onward. I do NOT think he will disappoint at all!! What does this mean about Wilson and Mitchell?? Out tomorrow?? I think so..

    Re: Ventrone activated

    To borrow from patchick(?):

    :horn: BUBBA! :rocker:

    Some posters covering his time in NFLE have said that he's learned how to tackle, while still being able to hit like a mule kick. I hope some Colts can testify to that after the game. :)

    Re: Ventrone activated

    I wonder if Chad Jackson made the trip......That would be sum serious speed if we decide to go in a four or five wide set

    Re: Ventrone activated

    Uh, no. He was NOT activated. Instead the Pats filled the open spot on the 53 with Ventrone, a guy who has not played.

    That's a bizarre activation. Was not expecting that.

    Depth at safety. Wilson is out.

    Monday they can release him and sign Jackson, Jackson, Dillon or someone else.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    BB acivated Ventrone to help the Pats increase the point differential in the Pats favor.

    Gives Dan Marino and his like more material for Runupthescoregate.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    Sometimes I suspect BB of adding a guy to the roster just to get him a game check.

    But if he makes the 45 -- well, then, there's more reason than just generosity.

    Re: Ventrone activated

    I doubt they would activate him and then NOT have him play. IT could be that Mitchell is close to playing but wish to have Ventrone ready if not the case. Good for Bubba!! And maybe they will keep him on the 53..who knows what they will do in thw bye week.

    He was almost activated last week but at the last minute the coaches told him that they were going to wait and give Sammy Morris one more week before deciding to put him on IR or not. I guess this week they decided that Morris had to be placed on IR and did activate Bubba just a week later that they were originally going to.

    I talked to him and he is pumped about it. He will play special teams, Kickoff and Kick Return.
