somehow we're only 124th
New England Patriots
Jets @ Patriots
Tom Brady prediction- 24 TD passes and one running TD.
Within a few days, the NE Patriots cut Shawn Crable, re-signed Pierre Woods, and later put Crable back on the practice squad. Links below from Pats website.
Brief note about Crable cut:
Pats writer says he's "stunned." Crable had his first half-sack last week. Guess it wasn't quite enough. But since the Pats put him back on the PSq, they obviously hadn't completely given up on him.
Locker room video with brief interview of Woods as he returns to the team:
Woods tells the reporter he'd been working as a groundskeeper at UofM. Says it's better than not working. Article includes quote and expands.
New England has signed Crable to the 53 man roster to replace Kevin Faulk. Hopefully he can live up to his potential this time, he seems to have all the physical tools the Pats look for in an OLB but between injuries and mental lapses it hasn't panned out yet.
EDIT: no longer semi OT
For anyone needing a pick-me-up after losing the volleyball game, I thought I'd post this hilarious news story:
One of the guys who plays the Patriots' mascot was arrested for soliciting a prostitute as part of a sting in Rhode Island. As another funny sidenote, prostitution was apparently legal recently in Rhode Island as long as it occurred indoors. A legal loophole was accidentally introduced by the Rhode Island legislature in 1980 and it wasn't fixed until November.
