    Dont expect much from SPIKES from BB

    This is fromMike Reiss today... 1. Chung & Spikes close to return. When asked about the importance of safety Patrick Chung (foot) and linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) returning to the field before the playoffs, Belichick said, "You can only play a player if he's ready to play." Belichick then added, "I think they’re close obviously. They’ve been practicing. Some guys have done more than others. Some guys - it’s a question of really being able to string it together and really get up to the competitive level that they need to be at." This from BB tells me either Chung or Spikes is not ready competitively; i bet its Spikes and not Chung. Although i hope i am wrong and they both can contribute in playoffs at a high level, but Spikes comes off as a non Patriot type player. Again i hope i am wrong.

    *BEST example of what's wrong with this BDC Board this season, that I've ever seen. Wow...even to the point of drawing his own random conclusions on 1 guy, then adding it into the thread title as what Bill Belichick actually said & believes himself=AWESOME.

    SANPAT...good discussion point, but we'll never know for sure.  BB would never ellude to anything of the sort.  If Spikes is dumped next year or whatever, perhaps you can dig this up and say...I TOLD YOU SO! :)

    If they both aren't playing this week (to some extent or another) then I wouldn't expect to see them in the playoffs...and thus I wouldn't expect a defensive improvement.

    I hope I am wrong but based on what BB said, I have the feeling that we will see Chung this week and not Spikes.  But Spikes brings energy to the defense and is really good run stuffer so hopefuly BB was just blowing smoke.  Two more days till we findout!

    It is very unlike BB to callout performance issues to reporters as in  and i quote the coach "Some guys - it’s a question of really being able to string it together and really get up to the competitive level that they need to be at."

    This tells me that one of them (likely Spikes) is not competitive and Chung should be on field this weekend.  Either way it will be intersting to watch what happens.

    Why 'likely spikes'?  BB didn't differentiate between the players.

    I thought both guys were more situational than 3-4 down types when they were drafted.

    Maybe he talking about Vollmer?  He's pretty much miss the same amount of time as the others Hummel's on the team.

    If that's what you based your conclusions on, then my advice is to not draw any final conclusions based on The Report of 1 day of Practice from 1 day this week alone.  Both players have been off and (practice field) on b/c of injuries, while Chung has missed significantly greater time thus far, career wise due to injuries alone. 

    A further pet peev of Laz:  Using unimaginably limited factual resources in order to boost up an already preformulated & previously judged belief you yourself had angled up to the table from the very get-go.  Sorry...biases bug me when they become bolstered not by a clearer & fuller rendition of all the facts which can be offered and then weighed, BUT by narrowing your to look for facts FOR your already angled beliefs, like through a visor, from the very beginning.

    I think what Bill is actually referring to Chad Pennington and Ryan Leaf, and if he is, he means that Pennington is likely closer to being able to play because Pennnington is a grass seed and grass grows fast just like it heals but Leaf falls and that is the end until next season. 

    Don't quote me, bro.

    No, you have to play his interviews backwards. I did that with this one and turns out he was actually saying "Spikes is the walrus." Weird.

You like to go on your monologues that are painfully long to read and rarely its abt "patriots on the front burner".

    Oh, so my bad...I didn't know Belichick meant only Brandon Spikes that he was refering to after I read your opening post saying this:

    "When asked about the importance of safety Patrick Chung (foot) and linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) returning to the field before the playoffs, Belichick said, "You can only play a player if he's ready to play." Belichick then added, "I think they’re close obviously. They’ve been practicing. Some guys have done more than others. Some guys - it’s a question of really being able to string it together and really get up to the competitive level that they need to be at.'"

    ...my mistake man

    Re: Dont expect much from SPIKES from BB

    I honestly think that Belichick just sees a lot of potential in Spikes and what's to get it out of him. Spikes plays enough and is clearly the guy right behind Spikes and the defense hasn't missed a beat without Mayo in the games where he was injured.
    I think Spikes attacks the line, makes some big hits, and brings a level of emotion that this defense doesn't have outside of him. I think Belichick wants him to be a little more cerebral, but really? Every team needs a nutcase that just sticks his nose in it and isn't afraid. That's Spikes.
