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.

    • he stopped Hopkins last year
    • Hard fought win yesterday and it was a big divisional win, which made it even more important.   Our defense played well and limited Henry.  He had a couple of big runs, but all good RBs will have those in games...it's key to limit those and make the consistent stops to limit the good ones to 2-3 yards per carry, which we did.   Mariotta still does not impress me and I can see the Titans moving on from him after this season.  He makes bad decisions when he runs the ball and puts himself in danger.   We had some costly penalties, but were able to overcome those.  Feel so badly for Adam V. and I wonder if this was his last game.  He had the appearance of a confused and defeated man on the sideline.
    • Kickers are always weird.  It is the most mentally draining position on any team.   When you get older, it takes longer to heal, physically, intellectually, and emotionally.  I also guarantee that he is more aware and disappointed about his performance than anybody else.  I hope, and believe, he will bounce back.                      
    • we have seen him for a full season though and he looks pretty similar to 2017.  Check the numbers if you dont believe that.   JB has a lot in common with Mariota, efficient game managers that can win with strong running game and defenses but most peopled dont believe they will win a ring.  im not even mad either i hope they do well this year but keep an eye on QBs in the draft or maybe FA
    • Titans have made the playoffs once in the last 10 years.  Chargers twice i nthe past 9.  Not really "regulars."  And whatever being "better" on paper means, it's the NFL and any team can win any given day, despite how a roster is composed.     I'm not saying they're bad, good or whatever, except that "on paper," they have the same record as us and while the Titans looked good against Cleveland last week, they were unimpressive this week.  Which Titans are the real Titans?  I don't know, hence, underwhelming, at least the version we saw yesterday.  The Chargers played us closely, but they missed a ton of opportunities yesterday.  I think they had a turnover, interception maybe, when they had two TDs called back because of penalties.    I'm not trying to naysay so much as be realistic about what Jacoby is doing.  He's serviceable.  Not a guy that's your first choice to lead your franchise.  I can't even say he's top 16.  If he's not cracked that list, our going to a super bowl while he's under center just does not seem very plausible.  Not this year anyway.  And if not ever with him, then we should start looking to replace him in next year's draft.  And thus far, unless he shows me something else, particularly against top tier competition, that's the direction we're headed.
