The New England Patriots lost their only likable player when they placed Broad Ripple HS standout Roosevelt Colvin on IR today. It’s official; there is no reason to like the Patriots. This is a big blow to Bill Belichick’s squad given how well Rosie has played over the past few seasons. He is their youngest starting linebacker at the age of 30 and is one of their better defensive players. The Patriots have had an uncanny ability to overcome injuries during their Super Bowl years, but even so I believe this is a significant injury that will be felt come playoff time. I’d love to be able to tell you what exactly Colvin’s injury is, but even his head coach does not seem to know.
Deshawn Zombie Comments: I hate injuries. I especially hate injuries to guys from Indy. I suppose, if there was going to be an injury that would offset Freeney’s, this would be it. It’s official, Colts fans can’t complain about Freeney being hurt, because Colvin plays much the same role for the Pats. Both teams are down a key player, which is a shame.
In other news, Etruesports.com says there is a growing rift between the Manning boys.
Freeney is obviously more important than Colvin, but I know where you are coming from. New England has been fortunate to only lose one defensive starter to IR this season. The Colts have lost McFarland, Morris, and Freeney.
