who could it be. Believe it or not, it's just me.

Wing gets a year contract extension. Have to think they bring in some competition for camp.

League makes statement and says...basically nothing.  The memes are great.  Super Bowl media day should be fun.

"Our office has been conducting an investigation as to whether the footballs used in last Sunday’s AFC Championship Game complied with the specifications that are set forth in the playing rules. The investigation began based on information that suggested that the game balls used by the New England Patriots were not properly inflated to levels required by the playing rules, specifically Playing Rule 2, Section 1, which requires that the ball be inflated to between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch. Prior to the game, the game officials inspect the footballs to be used by each team and confirm that this standard is satisfied, which was done before last Sunday’s game.

"The investigation is being led jointly by NFL Executive Vice President Jeff Pash and Ted Wells of the law firm of Paul Weiss. Mr. Wells and his firm bring additional expertise and a valuable independent perspective. The investigation began promptly on Sunday night. Over the past several days, nearly 40 interviews have been conducted, including of Patriots personnel, game officials, and third parties with relevant information and expertise. We have obtained and are continuing to obtain additional information, including video and other electronic information and physical evidence. We have retained Renaissance Associates, an investigatory firm with sophisticated forensic expertise to assist in reviewing electronic and video information.

"The playing rules are intended to protect the fairness and integrity of our games. We take seriously claims that those rules have been violated and will fully investigate this matter without compromise or delay. The investigation is ongoing, will be thorough and objective, and is being pursued expeditiously. In the coming days, we expect to conduct numerous additional interviews, examine video and other forensic evidence, as well as relevant physical evidence. While the evidence thus far supports the conclusion that footballs that were under-inflated were used by the Patriots in the first half, the footballs were properly inflated for the second half and confirmed at the conclusion of the game to have remained properly inflated. The goals of the investigation will be to determine the explanation for why footballs used in the game were not in compliance with the playing rules and specifically whether any noncompliance was the result of deliberate action. We have not made any judgments on these points and will not do so until we have concluded our investigation and considered all of the relevant evidence.

"Upon being advised of the investigation, the Patriots promptly pledged their full cooperation and have made their personnel and other information available to us upon request.  Our investigation will seek information from any and all relevant sources and we expect full cooperation from other clubs as well. As we develop more information and are in a position to reach conclusions, we will share them publicly."

Given a choice among GB, NE, and Seattle (Indy had no shot), I'd take the Pack every time.

This. I actually relate to the pack. Similar city. Similar franchise. Simular ownership philosophy.  Similar history. Similar fans. Lambeau would be the 1 seed for a visiting stadium to see a Steeler game for me. And it's not even close.


Yeah of the final 4 it was

1.) Indy - Big Luck fan.
2.) Packers - Don't mind them surprisingly, even after XLV.











3.)  Seahawks - Loathe to the point that I would root for any afc team outside of NE or Baltimore against them













4.) Patriots - word can't express how much I loathe.  Hopefully they get embarrassed like Denver last year.

This just in...Brady wants to be the only one in the locker room touching and rubbing the balls. I guess at least he didn't say blowing and sucking.

Brady said before games he'll go through a process of picking out the balls prior to the officials' inspection. He said he wouldn't want anyone messing with them after that.

"When I pick those footballs out, at that point to me they’re perfect," Brady said. "I don’t want anyone touching the balls after that. I don’t want anyone rubbing them, putting any air in them, taking any air out. To me those balls are perfect and that’s what I expect when I show up on the field."


I love how they expect us to be completely stupid and believe that no one knew. It must have been just a rogue ball boy trying to give the team an edge and no one even noticed. I also love how Brunell called him out on exactly that point too.

After Brady's remarks, former NFL quarterback Mark Brunell of ESPN flatly and with a touch of anger said he didn't believe what Brady said.

"I did not believe what Tom had to say," Brunell said on ESPN right after Brady was done. "Those balls were deflated, somebody had to do it, and I don't believe there's an equipment manager in the NFL that would on his own initiative deflate a ball without the starting quarterback's approval. I just didn't believe what Tom Brady had to say."

I would also like to say, I'm glad that smug bitch Rodgers and the Pack ( and their annoying fans) aren't winning the SB.

Seattle is the choice here, although not thrilled. They've taken advantage of a young talented roster. We'll see how they look after they have to give Wilson the 9 figure salary.
