Always liked Jeff Blake. He had the best looking deep throws and for as good as Brees is, he is no Jeff Blake in play action. Blake could really sell the sizzle.

I disagree though on that it's not a big deal. If it was not a big deal then why even do it. It's absolutely a big deal if you are checking all the balls before the game on how they feel and adjusting them. Can't do that stuff anymore, along with a lot of other things from 15 years ago. As I use to tell my Soldiers, don't do that stuff and if you do I hope you get caught.

It's a big deal because it's a rule that was broken. Let's not miss the point here. I don't care if Brady let's air out...or anyone else, but if Drew doesn't do it because it's a rule and Brady could care less and does it anyway...well...

What will be interesting is next year if their fumble ratio falls back into a normal range with the rest of the league. After a few years then yes, I think the probability that they were doing it is all but confirmed.

Belicheat has been doing this stuff for a long time. He use to watch and study game film with his Dad in high school. He knows the game through and through and is a master of finding cracks that give him an advantage.

He knew what he was doing when he was filming practices, knew what he was doing creating confusion on legal receivers (he cheated there as well but it was not caught at the time), and he knew about the air pressure. He full of !@#$ and I hope he pays another steep fine.

I hear you saintfan, but I think this article says it all and where this case is headed or went. Over and out.

Re: Report: NFL Probing NE for Deflating Balls

Now they're saying only one ball was underinflated, ... I think the whole thing was just trumped up so the media and everyone involved could just talk about "balls" for two weeks without being censored, .

Of the 11 deflated footballs used in the New England Patriots' win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship, only one was well below the legal limit of 12.5 PSI. That one ball was a full two pounds under while the other 10 were just a tick below, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. That news counters previous reports that said officials found 11 of 12 balls deflated by two pounds of pressure or more ... read more:
