I don't know if any of you knew this but 10 out of the 11 footballs were deflated in the Patriots vs the Colts game. It's not like the NFL is going to do anything except reverse the game so the Colts win.

Not defending them, but Blount did plenty to deflate the Colts and the ball didn't matter. The Pats kicked them around and while the ball might have been Patriots friendly, I can't see how it altered the outcome in any shape or fashion.
Oh. Agreed. They did overpower the Colts!! Certainly not as exciting as the early game!!

Actually, that's not happening. Not even close. It's more like a $25k fine and maybe a draft pick.

They need to suspend the coach for a year, the GM for 6 games, and take two draft picks.
Brady should probably get involved also. Game balls are customized per the quarterback's needs/preferences. On the other hand, game ball tampering is nothing new. New England just got called on it, perhaps due to their history.

So I'm assuming there is no way both teams can lose? Big bummer.

With that in mind I'm thinking...

Seattle 27
New England 20

I'm all in with the Patriots this year. I think the find a way to contain the running game and force Russell Wilson to beat them, while keeping him contained in the pocket. Revis steps up big and the Pats get at least two turnovers. Gronk gets 2 TDs, but Brady is the MVP. Blount doesn't wow with big stats, but establishes enough of a running game to keep Seahawks defense honest.

Patriots 27

One can only hope you're right. Living in Seattle is the ultimate nightmare. Lose Hags, lose!

But I hate NE too...but the old best of two evils thing has to apply here.

If NE wins there will be...


At least at my house.

That was a fantastic Super Bowl and what a finish! I had no particular interest, but glad to see New England Patriots win this year. I just love seeing a close game with twists and turns.
