Another "hater" what dopes!
It's easy to say in hindsight, but I don't think that was a terrible call. The Patriots had Blount and Develin in the backfield, so they were telegraphing a running play. They went with a pass to Bennett, who was being covered by a Beasley. Beasley is primarily a pass rusher, had one pass defensed all season, and is 5 inches shorter than Bennett. Beasley should get more credit being able to knock the ball away with his left in that situation.
Yep. Bad throw plus great defense. I'm glad he doesn't have much experience catching a football. Would have been a shame to get Malcom Butlered there. Course, the game wouldn't have been over, but still...
Because, the text was made a minute after Jaztremski appeared on television for an away game. It was in Green Bay. Jaztremski never handles balls at all after they are given to refs. That is left to McNally, who is the self-described deflator. NFL procedures have ball boys from the home team handling the balls after the refs pump them up. The Patriots guys were nowhere near the balls, neither Jastremski nor McNally who was 1,000 miles away.
The deflate/deflator excuse sounds preposterous. Which is why the Patriots wouldn't want to emphasize it. That being said, there were 3 texts about deflation. This one during the Green Bay game couldn't have referred to footballs. The "deflator" text in March could have. The third "deflate" text actually exonerates Brady because Brady had to be told that the refs inflate the balls, which is why Brady told Jaztremski to "show the f'in rulebook."
Or.the Deflator was known as Brady's guy to make sure the footballs were at the
low/lowest point possible...they just don't have a text or video clip that solidifies that.
A bet's a bet.
Before Super Bowl LI, Zoo Atlanta and the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island, made a bet that if their team lost they would name a baby animal after the winning team's quarterback.

This has to be deflating to those fans who thought it would be a lion!
Why you bumping old mega threads . Board much cleaner if this gets its own thread.
You talking to the man like that?
No I just want more Pats threads
Nope. Exception for OT threads:
Please stop bumping old threads
I'm a consistent tyrant.
Cause they allow you to flex your troll muscles on a noncess board
Such is jealousy.
Going to any Yard Goats games? Get on the bandwagon before they win multiple World Series! I used to be made fun of at UConn (?!?!?) for being a Patriots fan during the mid 90s. I am sure my old friends remember me. Welcome to a bandwagonning world. You do realize we have bandwagon fans too for our own basketball programs??
Not the AFC CG.
Not the Green Bay game.
Or, are you saying here that (because of the 3rd text that I said exonerate Brady), the Deflator's job was to make sure the balls were LEGAL when the refs made them ILLEGAL?
That's a hell of a theory, and I give you credit for that one, because I've never heard someone say that one before. It's a wonder the NFL didn't come up with that.
Hey c'mon someone, can we move this PATS thread to the womens board?
Really ? Are you kidding me with this idiocy ? It's this simple: The laws of physics predicts exactly the drop in pressure of the balls from the comfy confines of the locker room to the cold, wet environment on the field. Period. There is nothing more to it than that. That you're still on about this is lunacy.
