Van Noy and speed: reminderhigh has been a talking point, but i've been almost more disappointed in van noy. it seems like he's lost speed.
I thought Bryant filled in for Jones ok today and Williams certainly responded from his benching.One thing that concerns me is the secondary. They're not great and with injuries and lack of top talent, they are liable to be gashed if the front 7 are unable to win the battle on the LOS and pressure the QB. That's the biggest concern when we will go up against Herbert next week.
It's the current version of Brady's weekly, 15 year shoulder injury on the weekly injury report. Nothing to do with today's players.I thought Bryant filled in for Jones ok today and Williams certainly responded from his benching.
I am still trying to figure out this "abdomen" injury. Now McCourty has this mystery ailment that I simply don't recall seeing 10 years ago. "Abdomen"> What is it? An invisible boogie man comes by and slugs the player in the stomach?
What on earth is the matter with these football players today?
Brady's injury to his shoulder was just BB mocking the injury report and Brady being the QB with some soreness after the game. McCourty left the game and I believe Mason did too, with the exact same issue. I don't see it as the same thing.It's the current version of Brady's weekly, 15 year shoulder injury on the weekly injury report. Nothing to do with today's players.
I should have been clearer. This IS Bill's new vehicle for mocking the injury rrport.Brady's injury to his shoulder was just BB mocking the injury report and Brady being the QB with some soreness after the game.

It's a new injury for me. I don't recall seeing "abdomen" ever before. We have 3 players now who take themselves out of games with the "abdomen injury". "Calf" I've seen in recent years, but that is new, too. When Wilfork went down with his Achilles back in 2013, I remember thinking how he'd never come back. He did and it's just strange. I am starting to wonder if there is some new strain of HGH or some kind of enhancer similar to that isn't illegal yet, that players are using which is leading to these kinds of odd injuries.
Prior to 2014, I am convinced every player used HGH to rehab faster which is why a guy who blew out an ACL one season could come back and act like nothing happened the next season. But, I wonder what kind of long term damage that causes over time with consistent use, too.
To the point of guys missing games and time?
So you think there is an injury for sure, like in hockey, where they say "upper body injury" where everyone knows that means concussion and BB is making up some general body area just for fun and removing talented players from playing?I don't want to speak for him but I think he's trying to explain to you that injuries are being pooled in to one injury name. Maybe McCorvey had a rib injury or maybe he had a wrist injury. In order to keep things opaque, Belichick simply reports them as and abdominal pull or strain.

Trent Brown has been milking this "calf" thing for 7 weeks. Is it a pulled muscle? What is it? No one can explain it. I just think it's weird. The abdomen one is super weird.
How do you strain a calf and miss 7 weeks as an OL? How do you have a hurt stomach? Is it a contusion from the helmet into the stomach area?
Ranted? Strange.You ranted about two things above:
1- YES. I think BB fucks with the league sometimes. This year might be stomach aches. Maybe they are real. Who TF knows?
2- I wonder about Brown too. That said, BB can't FORCE him to play if he says he is hurt. Also, he could be hurt, still. Or, and stay with me here, BB knowing his calf history and also knowing we need him....maybe in the playoffs... is slow walking him back. It was the fucking Jets and the AFC is wide ope for a playoff spots.
But WTF do I know. I coach hockey.
It was a great win. Enjoy it.
Ranted? Okay, maybe a bit strong, sorry. But dude, you are a very aggressive... Expect it back from a few of us until you figure this place out. Hint: You haven't yet but I sense you are starting to. Cool.Ranted? Strange.
I am just asking the question. No one can seem to answer them and that's fine. It's a mystery. We may be the only team in the league with multiple players removed from playing with this "abdomen".
"Calf" has been a thing over the last 10 years, but that is definitely newish in league history.
Great win indeed. Some hiccups in there, but it's their second best 60 minute game behind the TB game. They didn't play down to the Jets, which obviously couldn't happen.
