Patriots Practiced With Players That Were On IR

103 replies 1 views Edited May 23, 2008

"Basically, the Patriots would put a player on IR, knowing it meant he couldn't play in a game or practice with the team for the remainder of the season. By skirting the rules and practicing him anyway, it allowed them to develop his skills during the year. A side benefit is that they were also able to give some of the older players less repetitions and, therefore, additional rest."

It's just amazing to me how indifferent Belichick is when it comes to abusing the rules.

Seriously, I hated the Patriots as it was before the 07-08 season. But after everything said about them, they don't deserve anything they've gotten these past few years.

I'll cover this for the Patriots fans so they don't have to:

 

"It's not a big deal because they didn't get game time experience, so it's moot anyway. It's no worse than training troops for war." "Basically...every team does this." "(point out some recent smudge story your team got - founded or unfounded)" "Can't we just get over Spygate already?"

 

If I were Goodell, I'd rather be dealing with the Pacman. Belichick and his boys seem to be getting busted for something new every week. Ignore the relevency of the entire situation...it's the fact there's a negative connotation yet AGAIN with the Patriots.

Darn, I forgot the straight up "your team sucks" card as a response. Got the irrelevent call.

 

It may not be a big deal in the grand scheme of things...but the IR is there for a reason. Why do you have to "tweak" a rule and play guys that aren't allowed to play? You don't just do something like that to "get the boys involved." Oh well. I guess it doesn't matter. Patriots haven't won anything of significance going on four years anyway, so maybe you're right...it can't be that much of an advantage.

Thanks for handling that, we Pats fans are busy at the moment, busy laughing at Jason Taylor's Miami-camp-boycott. How stupid is that?!?
