Patriots being investigated for Deflating footballs.....(Mega Merge)

Recommended Posts

If this is true, I have absolutely 0 respect for that organization. Purely disgusting. Once a cheater always a cheater.

 

Breaking: A league source tells me the NFL is investigating the possibility the Patriots deflated footballs Sunday night. More to come.

I'm told at one point the officials took a ball out of play and weighed it. Should hear more tomorrow on this subject.

Told if a league investigation confirms deflated footballs it will result in lost draft picks. Stay tuned.

If they find out they deflated the Colts defesive line then we might be on to something.

On a serious note this didn't impact the game the better team won and hats off to New England but there is so many stories like this where of the Pats aren't flat out cheating they walk right up to the line of it that it just gets old. The sad thing is they don't need to do it. They are a darn good football team without all the shady stuff. They make a great heel wrestling villain because they cheat not because they have to but because they can.

Weird but regardless if the balls were messed w or not it has nothing to do w our ability to stop the run.

Disgusting. If this is true, I hope they get demolished next week and I hope Brady gets injured. Yeah i said it. Torn ACL.  Karma's a b*tch.

Yeah because Brady was on the sidelines deflating the balls...again, wishing injury on someone, you 12 or something?

Nah, just upset that Pats always gotta cheat in some way. Not saying its the reason Colts lost, but it is really disgusting. No other NFL team does this.

I remember them throwing a ball to the sideline once. Thought that was odd

"Hey, deflate this bad boy before the bearded guy in the #12 jersey takes the field"

It doesn't change the running game and those scores, which were enough to beat the Colts easy, but it does call into question the passing game considering the rain slicked balls would be easier to grab if they had more give.

 

Make no mistake, it likely wouldn't have saved Indy's hide, as nothing really could. It's just a huge disgrace if they are doing these things.

Um yea it does. If luck throws the ball, it doesnt have as much power. Carrying a deflated ball is less prone to fumble then when its fully inflated..

Some type of suspension of coaching staff would also seem appropriate if this is true.

Loss of draft picks would probably be the punishment. But then again, you never know with Mr. Goodell

You'd have to suspend Belichick at this point. I just think you'd have to. You can't suspend Payton for bounties and then let a guy cheat twice and not take it to him. I get that one literally endangered people, but Belichick would be a repeat offender.

 

But I digress. We don't even know that the league will arrive at the conclusion this happened.

You know if this is true the Pats would be a miltipal time offender under the rule of Goodell. You want to punish the Pats suspend BB for a while, it won't happen but I'd rather see that than a loss of a draft pick.

Not that it would have changed anything about the game likely, but it shows you again how petty the Patriots are to do anything they can to gain an advantage.

If this is true, then they should tell them that they can't play in the super bowl !!!  hahaha.  Or play the game over, except this time in Indy !!!  But they definitely need to be fined and/or suspended and draft picks taken away if it is true.

Perhaps he did?

or was the deflated balls just for the Patriots?  For them to grip the ball better?

So the power Luck puts on the ball has anything to do w our ability to stop the run? Foolish post.

    • I would think about giving them the #34 which is a good trade for both teams, then if we do draft a WR at 26 that would make sense.
    • I think you offer them #34 and that's it......  maybe add the compensation 4th rounder.  You'd absolutely have to be happy with netting Q. Nelson, Frank Clark (and a big contract) Braden Smith, and Kemoko Turay and Jordan Willis (last 22 from trading jets #52 pick   All for moving from 3 to 6 last year......   Don't know if someone will beat an offer of #34 and second 4th rounder...... but I'd absolutely throw it on the table and see.  Clark is an awesome talent at a near impossible position to fill via trade.... he's 25, produced at a high level, very healthy over his career.... not a big locker room issue.  Those are the guys you hope to draft so you CAN pay them big money to keep....  so I view the big contract as a given, a necessary evil.  The Colts dream of having a DE that is good enough to necessitate a huge contract, here is one, go get him.
    • Well, I appreciate you straightening out the information.  That still isn't the number of possible schedules, it's just the number they created based on the financial needs mixed with the venue availability issues and other stuff.   There are some horrendous schedules for certain teams out there.  Whatever human intervention took place, they clearly didn't care about screwing teams.  Oakland and Tampa got it the worst and it was needless.  But money is all that matters, not the health of the players or fairness of competition.  That much is clear.  
    • I didn't suggest anything. I'm just saying that by applying you logic to everyone on the roster, we shouldn't need to upgrade anything. Or does that just hold true to WR?
    • Simple.  It means we need to continue to look elsewhere for someone ready to play out of the box.  Someone who shines, even if its just as a rookie.  I would suggest the draft and we hope that Cain's brief spark before injury was more than fools gold.  Johnson and Paschal had brief moments where they appeared capable but certainly were far from Elite talent.  Rogers and the rest of the guys on the roster after Hilton and Funchess seem like cannon fodder for the most part.  We need elite talent.  We need elite speed.  We need elite hands.  We need elite route running.  In essence, we need SOMETHING to be elite about our qualified #2 and #3.  I didn't see anything that suggested "Elite" from any of these guys last year.  Did you? Someone will be #2 even if they're terrible.  There WILL be a #2.  What I think most people hope for is that the #2 has something elite, if not many things elite about their skill set.  Outside of Hilton, that isn't a word that applies to the backups from last year and camp bodies.     Are you going on the record to say we have our full time, long term #2 and eventual #1 when Hilton is gone on the roster?  Who would that be?  And no matter how you answer, using your criteria, what supposed practical value is that supposed to have?     What practical value does my opinion have? At least the same value as any opinion you or anyone else shares.  None of us have power over the team.  The point of a message board is to post opinions and discuss.  You apparently disagree with my statement, so let's hear who our #2 elite talent is among the scrubs? Settling for a #2 without elite talent is what we did last year.  Ryan Grant was devoid of anything elite and it showed.     Questions?
