    What's the point of acquiring a top-tier pitcher if the roster has so many holes? This line-up has a big problem with reaching base (21st in team OBP), is dreadful in power (28th in SLG) and doesn't...

    The question though is whether the Patriots deflated (assuming they tampered with the footballs after inspection) to get under 12.5 PSI; or to simply get over-inflated balls closer to 12.5.

    But what about the plausible theory that the NFL set this up in advance as a sting operation? What if the officials rarely checked/measured PSI with a gauge (Rodgers) but decided to nail the Pats?

    A few events were responsible for this Draconian ruling, IMO (and they're unrelated to Brady and his phone/e-mail):

    1. Gronk's video treating this like an absolute WWE side-show

    Thursday's speech at Salem State earned Brady 2-3 games IMO (on top of the initial punishment). He obviously doesn't take the process very seriously -- no should he -- and that's just going to...

    People forecast the Patriots regressing back to 2010-2012 in pass coverage; but BB, on two recent occasions, demonstrated the ability to pluck elite CB's via trade. I think that deserves some trust....

    I like the Chandler signing, but he's a slightly bigger version of Gronkowski (Pro-Football-Reference lists him at 6'7-270). Seems like some duplication at the Y, unless it's injury insurance. Or...

    So do you also think Belichick dictates how much tape Vince Wilfork applies to his ankles, or what gloves Brandon LaFell wears too?
