Can someone explain to me what Branch is hoping to gain by potentially sitting out until week 10? At the end of the day, isn't this guy a football player who loves the game and wants to be on the field helping his team? Is he really so selfish and stupid that he would punish his team for 10 weeks, deprive himself of playing the game he loves all to make a point? Does he not care about the fact that this team has a great chance at another championship run and making history once again? Does he think sitting out for 10 weeks like some selfish child makes him more desirable to other teams? Does he think having 10 less weeks of statistics this season will help his cause as a FA? I don't how sitting out 10 games makes any sense from ANY point of view including his own childish self-centered one.
