Hey, hey hey there LLT - watch it buster - I've got a couple of years on Interceptaverde.

I dunno - I think this is a good move on the Pats' part. Vinny has 20 years in the NFL and can still throw a nice pass, even though he throws more of those nice passes to opposing defenses. Seriously, though - Vinny brings experience and insurance to the Pats in case Brady's shoulder situation worsens and they probably got him Kraft-like cheap.

I agree, HTG...by NFL standards, Vinny is real long in the tooth, but he has that experience...and they may need it if Brady's performance really goes down.

interresting story i heard from gil brandt on the radio. he aint coming back for the money. parcells told brandt that vinnie is very well off and independently wealthy aside from football. he got in on the ground floor and is is one of the original shareholders of outback steakhouse which started in tampa.

so nobody worry about the health of brady. vinnie was just brought in for the free bloomin onions.

Maybe Brady's continually injured shoulder is causing him some problems this year - he has made some very wild throws - both over thrown and under thrown.

I guess we'll see how this one pans out........

NM
Brady's shoulder is the reason ... no way they go out and get Vinny if Brady's healthy - the question is who will play if his injury gets worse? - the Castle back up guy from SC or old man Vinny?

We have made quite a few roster moves in the last couple of weeks - rookie TE to IR, stand-in RG to IR - possibly this was always part of the plan - to get a genuine 3rd QB familiar with the offense should he be required in the post-season - after the other areas had ironed themselves out.

If Brady was injured, I think Cassel would be good to go if he had a weeks notice, but if it was a mid-game injury then you really need a vet to step in - which is where Testeverde comes in.

Brady, much like his team, has been up and down in terms of form this year - but you would hope things improve as he gets more familiar with his WR corps in the 2nd half of the season.

NM

If Brady had an injury that could seriously worsen by playing he wouldn't be playing. Brady is the franchise.

I agree with you LITP, I think it was part of the plan to bring in a 3rd QB as the year progressed and when the opportunity presented itself. I also agree that for a short spurt of a few games it might be better to go with a vet like Testeverde until Brady got back.

BTW, I always liked Testeverde. He'll drive you nuts out there, but he's very likeable.
