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.

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 agree with u.  People on this forum just look at stats.  I have watched the film and he is poor in coverage and gets blown up in running plays.  I think he is to light.  I also think Leonard believes his own hype and   is playing for stats.  Call me crazy.....but would not b surprised if we have 2 lbs ready to take advantage of their opportunities.

    • NFL Game Day in Indianapolis is finally here Colts Nation!    Our 2019 Indianapolis Colts are back in Downtown Indianapolis as they host the Atlanta Falcons in the first of four NFC South interdivisional opponents the Colts will play during the 2019 NFL Regular Season. Atlanta is playing a regular season game for the first time in Indianapolis in eight years, and Sunday afternoon's game is the 17th all-time meeting between the teams.   After two games the Colts are #2 in the NFL in Rushing Offense, and yards, led by  Marlon Mack with his 225 yards.   Also an interesting battle of quarterbacks, with the Colts Jacoby Brissett and the Falcons Matt Ryan leading their offenses. Atlanta offense also is sparked by WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman.   Indianapolis by far has the most current  winning percentage over any NFL opponent to start their home schedule of the regular season.   Colts lead the series at 14-2, and with their .875 percentage over the Falcons after 16 games.  Colts probably would have had a record of 15-1 instead when  the Falcons last visited Indianapolis.   Colts QB  Peyton Manning  though was sidelined the entire 2011 NFL regular  season because of his neck surgeries, along with Manning being placed the Franchise Tag.   Indianapolis will certainly perform better than they did when they played Atlanta at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on November 6, 2011.  Falcon's Matt Ryan outdueled the Colts Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky with completing 14 of his 24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns.  Two of his TD's were in the air to Julio Jones from 50 and 80 yards, and 1 yard to Tony Gonzalez.  Defensive back Jerraud Powers 6-yard interception return for a TD in the second quarter, was the only score for the Colts as Atlanta defeated Indianapolis 31-7.   Indianapolis avenged their loss when they defeated Atlanta in their last regular season visit to the  Georgia Dome back on November 22, 2015.  Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw two separate TD passes from 7 yards and 2 yards to Ahmad Bradshaw, plus a 6-yard INT return by Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson, to help the Colts tie the game at 21-21 with 10:07 remaining in the fourth quarter.  Adam Vinatieri kicked  43-yard  game-winning field goal  with 8  seconds remaining, to help the Colts defeat the Falcons 24-21.   LOS's retractable roof could be closed to keep everyone inside cool and comfortable, for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because mostly cloudy skies at 84 degrees, feels like 85 degrees, is the gamecast outside the stadium area, along with 15% precipitation, 47% humidity, and southwest winds at 15 miles per hour.   Head Linesman Alex Kemp leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the live game action on the LOS playing field between the Colts and Falcons.   NO injuries the Colts and Falcons players,  win your second game of the season in front of your loyal fans, and LET'S  GO COLTS!!!!!                  https://www.colts.com/game-day/2019/reg-week3/falcons-at-colts/            
    • I could be wrong, but I think he started slow last year as well.  It will come.  Our defense will shine this game.  Opening day they will be pumped!!
