The great unreported story from yesterday's game. Thank you, TBL.
I found this article about the games teams play with injury reports fascinating. During the Butch Davis years, I used to refer to it as the "weekly pack of lies" rather than "injury report". It shows that "Probable" players get into the game about 90% of the time, "Questionable" about 50% and "Doubtful" about 3%. The rule of thumb is supposed to be 75, 50, 25 respectively. We've been dutifully relaying injury reports for a number of years here, and the actual numbers feel right based on what we've seen. People reporting on the New England Patriots may have different numbers.
Baltimore writers are agitating for Art Modell to get into the Hall of Fame. Fortunately, support for the back-stabbing ex-owner seems to be lessening, not growing. Thanks to OttoOtto for finding the link.
