Will Deflategate Affect Super Bowl XLIX?

Raj: There will not be any impact on this for Super Bowl XLIX. In terms of whether this poses as a distraction to the Pats, not at all. This team is very disciplined and is way better than that. It would be very un-Patriot like to see this team get distracted by this situation. If the […]

How will the NFL Punish the Patriots?

Kyle: Deputy Barney Fife, I mean Commissioner Goodell, showing everybody that he is boss, will levy some overly-heavy handed punishment on the Pats. The punishmentshould be similar to a Jaywalking ticket, $25,000. However, Commissioner Fife will pull the one bullet out of his shirt pocket and give a four game suspension to BB, a hefty (more […]

Is Deflategate Over-inflated?

Rick: Absolutely, people are “over-inflating” the importance of deflate-gate. Yes, the Patriots should be punished if found guilty by the NFL because it technically is cheating. The sad part about this situation is New England did not need to deflate the balls in order to beat the Colts the way they did. In fact, New England […]

I am not a crook

So we have the initial findings around the Patriots using underinflated balls and they are not good. According to several media reports, 11 of the 12 balls were up to two pounds below the minimum required by rule. This is bad, in many ways, for the Patriots However, before we explore the fallout that is […]

This is Why We Watch

I have spent more hours than I could ever keep track of watching men run around on a field or a court tossing a ball around.  There are times when I ask myself if this is really time well spent.  I may love the Patriots, but the Patriots don’t love me.  Tom Brady has no […]

Key to the Game

What is your biggest key to the game on Saturday? Rick: The biggest key for Saturday’s game is going to be the Patriots’ offensive line against the pass rush of the Ravens. The Ravens were second in the NFL during the regular season in sacks. Also, they sacked Ben Roethlisbeger five times in their win over the Steelers last […]
