    Quick comment about Hernandez

    As a DeMaro Murray owner I have felt lied to and led on for the better part of the second half of the season. I have managed to fill the hole he left and I am currently riding a 7 game win streak. The situation no doubt has frustrated me though.

    Now that I am seeing the epic saga that is A Hernandez unfold I wanted to let all you Hernandez owners know I feel your pain. Dealing with an injury can be tough but when the organization continues to deceive the public about the players availability every single it really #$%$ me off. Sorry to everyone going through it!

    • I have been waiting on him all year, finally 3 weeks ago I traded for Gonzo. I still got Hern, I need someone to get water bottles for my players. I never liked Hoodie much anyway, but the way he handles injuries, hes a tool.

    • Odd post. Coaches lie routinely and it's a significant part of their jobs to lie convincingly. A DC can scheme much more effectively against an offense knowing an impact player like Hernandez is unavailable. As Holmgren famously told a reporter in Seattle some years ago "a big part of my job description is not only to lie, but to lie effectively." Get used to it. It's part of the game. Always has been. Always will be.

      • No, Belichek is abusing the whole purpose of the injury report. He always has half his roster listed as questionable/doubtful and all but 1 or 2 end up playing unhindered every.... single..... game...... It throws up a red flag that he is full of #$%$ and the NFL needs to step in and rip him a new one like they did with spygate. If the player is doubtful then don't have him fake a limited practice 3 times in a week and then rule him out. I understand the man is getting desperate for another ring but come the #$%$ on..... When you are 1 of maybe 2-3 HC's that continually pulls this #$%$ you deserve an #$%$ whooping.

        What these guys are doing isn't the normal secret squirrel stuff that every HC pulls on a daily basis. That's the stuff I am fine with. It's when they string together these elaborate lies and have the players in collusion to continually scam the injury report that you see a problem. You may appreciate the lying but I can guarantee you a vast majority of football fans are tired of it.
