.......ummmmmm, that's his daughter.

Yes it is his daughter.  It is amazing the amount of coverage this photo has gotten.  I have seen it all over twitter, FB, and various other social media outlets.

 

Once again,  one photo has had an array of comments all from one end of the spectrum to another.   Anything from  Gross and that's disgusting............to  What a sweet moment captured in a split second between father and daughter.

 

Same photo ~~ different views.   People see and read into things exactly what they want to see and read.

Get used to Pats fans hammering at the Colts.. "We're going in there and hanging 70 on them, they're the cheaters and they whine" ect.

 

I don't think this is out of the question. Though maybe 60 is more likely.

 

Pats have averaged over 40 points vs Indy in the last 4 or 5 meetings. They'll be extremely motivated to crush them worse than ever before as a result of this deflategate nonsense.

Somebody, please explain to me:

 

1. Do the refs just take the balls presented to them and test if they are pressurized to be within the limits and call it good?

 

2. Do the refs pressurize all the balls to the median value (13 lbs. psi) to make things equal for both teams and allow for environmental conditions?

 

If 1 then I can see that balls coming to them at 12.5, then moved to colder conditions easily falling below the standards.

If that is the case then the NFL should not allow that low of pressure to begin the game, it's just logical hot or cold conditions are going to take the pressure out of the legal range with balls inflated to either extreme of allowable.

 

If 2 then there is no defense for the Pats balls to be out of range and the Colts balls to be fine.

Something fishy is going on.

 

Either way I see the NFL in the future, mandating that all balls be inflated to as near possible to 13 lbs psi. to ensure a level playing field to all teams. That +/- .5 lbs. being the margin of error for any given environmental conditions.

 

Whatever, I just see this as another case of the Pats pushing the limits of the rules, sometimes they get away with it sometimes they don't!

 

(We all know the Colts are just freaking perfect anyway so End of Story!)  :lol:

60 is not likely at all.

Explain

As I said, NE has averaged 40+ points per game in the last 4. Given the added motivation as a result of the overblown deflategate nonsense, I could see the Pats gaining a comfortable lead and then continuously going for it on 4th down when they reach the 50, going for 2 point conversions, using trick plays, etc.

 

They will make it a point to embarrass Indy.

They won't because Indy should be getting better every year. If they score 50-60 in Indy, that's say something about the GM/coaching.

    • Well if we keep 3 QBs then whoever is better in camp/training can be the back up.
    • I have no idea what to do with measurements and athletic testing from players this year. Do you ignore them altogether? How do you know which ones are real'ish?      
    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.
