Titans pose tough challenge
Page 5 of 18 -- A: I think you were on the right track. I thought 12 wins was always too high. If they can come close to that now with all of the injuries they've had, hats off to Belichick.
This is really not a question but an opinion and I as the question ,do you agree? I believe Tedy Bruschi is one of the true leaders of the Pats and thought Lawyer Milloy was an outstanding player, he wasn't as much a leader as the media said he was...A leader does for the team and Lawyer Milloy was asked to take a cut,as a fan who is disabled and on a limited income, I find it very difficult to have support for a man who refused to work with his team and go from +/- 4and1/2million dollars to ruffly 3 million dollars...this team seems to go as Bruschi goes and if he can't go the team is sluggish and the same goes for Tom Brady,when Brady is off so is the offense... Milloy made his decision and made his commitment to money...I wish now the media and us fans would let it go and concentrate more on the men here that want to be here to represent themselves and the New England Patriot Fans....

A: I think most people have let it go. It will rear its ugly head again if the team begins to lose and as injuries mount.
Nothing like a good win to make you feel better about the home team. But something else Milloy-related occurred to me. In many technology companies, employees have to sign a non-disclosure agreement that prevents them from sharing trade secrets with future employers. I don't suppose the NFL has such a practice specifically spelled out in the rule book, but do you think a team could actually initiate and enforce an NDA? It would've kept Milloy's mouth shut once he arrived in Buffalo and maybe we wouldn't have been thrashed so badly in that game.

A: Might be on to something Jason. I haven't heard that, but leave it to the NFL to institute another rule that the NFLPA will go for.
Hey Nick, I was wondering about the practice squad. Every year we hear that so many players are released and then re-signed to the practice squad but it doesn't seem like there are enough re-signings to field a scout team for weekly practices. How does this work? Also, could they be activated in case of injury such as if we have ANOTHER linebacker go down like Colvin and Johnson have already! Keep up the good work Nick! GO PATS! -Drill Sergeant McCarthy/U.S.Army HUAH!
