Pagano didn't say we will have to wait and see. Keefer tweeted that Pagano said Swoope should be ready by the opener. And it's not the first time he has given a very optimistic and incorrect timeline on a player.
So, naturally, I don't believe that he's correct in his assessment. And, as you pointed out, he's not a medical professional...so that's another reason. And the nature of the NFL is to historically withhold injury information, so that would be yet another reason.
You keep bringing this back trust and honesty into this. That is not what what I am talking about. I have never implied that Pagano is doing anything sinister...just that he's incorrect.
