    Surprise, Surprise! I can't believe it! Can you? He lied about his injury status!



    Here's an interesting article about Brady's personal throwing coach and their relationship.

    Tom Brady still listens to QB whisperer

    Does that mean poor play needs no explanation? I don't respect people that lie then then go to extraordinary lengths to challenge the credibility of someone who has told the truth.

    Thanks Doc Jean for another news morsel. You must have a hell of a sports feed ticker. I can always count on you for the latest scoop. How do you find the time? Are your patients specialists? In that they're only needing you 8-5, M-F?

    So what is the league empowered to do about this? I assume the league will not pursue penalties (for many reasons) but mainly it just doesn't sound like the league would bother. After all, this is so out of character for Belichick and the Patriots. <---sarcasm

    I understand, rules are rules. But this is one that doesn't make sense to me. Is he going to play or not... that's all anyone needs to know.

    Surely it won't happen, but it would suck if players put that extra effort to hit Brady's ribs, just because they knew about it.

    Brady just needed an excuse for his suckage late in the season .... an injury is as good an excuse as any.:user:

    I hope they fine their asses just like the jets for not reporting Farves injuries.

    Fines won't change anything. They need to suspend his lying ass...

    IIRC, this is not the first time he has been caught lying about the injury report.

    A coach getting suspended? Now that would be interesting. BB is the perfect guy to make an example of...

    I'm not sure I want to live in a world where Casserly is actually right. :gun:

    We're living it: He was right a lot in April of 2006 and we are reaping the benefits.

    Yeah, I'm sure they let him make all the draft picks, and then fired him a couple weeks later... lol Great business planning right there.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it has to do with gambling. If only a few people are privy to that type of information then it becomes extremely valuable to the oddsmakers in Vegas. I would imagine people would go to extreme lengths to obtain that information which could ultimately damage the integrity of the league.

    I'm sure this upsets the player's union as well.

    Casserly had a lot to do with the '06 draft. Kubiak wasn't in position to set a draft board that season. I'm sure Kubiak was influential but so was the existing GM and the reality is that the team of Kubiak and Casserly made some great decisions that week: Mario, Demeco, Winston, OD... not to mention the Kevin Walter acquisiton.



    I'm not a Casserly fan, that's for sure! But, if I can't give him credit when it is due then my criticisms of him carry less credibility.

    Well with all the other crappy picks/signings he made, I think he owed us at least a couple good decisions.

    How do we know either of those statements?

    What do we objectively know? Prior drafts with Casserly were spotty at best. We know Kubiak was the new head coach and Casserly was on his way out. We know Casserly "convinced" Kubiak to take OD. So on the one hand great job by Casserly on OD but that pretty soundly indicates Kubiak was in control of that draft. We know the scouts were hired under Casserly. We know Kubiak did not expect DeMeco to last to the 2nd round and they virtually sprinted to turn in the card on him.

    Facts:
    No GM/personnel man was in place other than Casserly and his guys
    Casserly was part of the sales job to McNair to draft Mario
    Casserly was a significant reason for the OD draft pick.
    Casserly didn't overbid to move to Chicago's spot to take Deangelo Williams. They let Buffalo have the spot which resulted in the Demeco pick (and Winston, probably)
    Kubiak was way too busy and novice to put together a staff, meet players, and organize an entire draft board in a matter of weeks.
    Casserly scouts were involved in the grading process.

    What would be the point of paying Casserly and leaving him on as the GM through the draft if he wasn't involved in the drafting process?

    Mine in bold. Of course he was involved. But we don't know that he wasn't advocating Bush, wanting to give a 2nd and 3rd to get DeAngelo or he and his staff had Lendale White rated above DeMeco. We know he had everything to do with OD. We know Kubiak had final say. Beyond that we don't know what Casserly's influence was much less a conclusion of "a lot."
