Re: The EC Wristwatch

Tough news.
As BAR said, we have depth at guard and Terrell
does well when EC is out
I hope Dan doesn't do his hang-dog act, like he
did a couple of years ago.
As the leader, his attitude effects the players.
Belichick and Brad Stevens don't mourn their lost
players, they just go to Plan B, and win.
