    I know Silver is also tight with Tully Banta-Cain, a former Patriots who fled this offseason, They have a University of California connection.

    I didn't see the anonymous source quoted, and then have Silver follow it up with an "I hear ya, Tully." But I did see anonymous quote, and then the next graph said "I hear ya, Willie."

    "I hear ya, Willie," wasn't meant to be an affirmation of the anonymous player quoted. It was in reference to the fact that Willie McGinnest had positive things to say about the Moss move.

    In other words, "While I understand what you said earlier in this article, Willie. . .in the end, I can't sign off on the notion that the conversion of Moss will be as seamless as everyone appears to believe it will."

    McGinnest isn't the former player quoted.

    I've stopped reading him, even in print - though that's not as bad as online, even if the subject interests me - just can't do it.

    The way it was written it definitely looked like he outed McGinnest as the former Patriots. Bad writing.
