The Snow Plow Game was 32 years ago this weekend. Friday to be exact.

#ThanksPeyton.

Thanks for home field until Glendale.

Thanks for giving the Patriots another week off.

Thanks for allowing us to ponder your next trip to Foxborough, which will come about two days before the AFC championship game at the earliest.

Thanks for offering those four interceptions.

The spirit of giving indeed.

Belichick needs one postseason victory to move into a tie with Tom Landry for the most in NFL history. Belichick is 19-9; Landry was 20-16 . . . Belichick, as he’s done in the past, took his team to a special advance movie screening next door at Patriot Place. The team watched “American Sniper” Wednesday afternoon.

What about Vereen's 'ineligibility'? That was even trickier.
Why do so many officials FEAR and kowtow to the Marshfield Airport gang?

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?

Brady on complaints about 4 OL in game: "Maybe those guys gotta study the rule book and figure it out."
That's why he's a genius!But it has been done before but at the college level.This is the exact same play Alabama ran in overtime to beat LSU, hitting a large lineman in stride.

Good article and clips of both teams using it.

"We saw that on Saturday in New England, when the Patriots, trailing the Ravens by 14 points in the second half, did something that just isn’t done in professional football: He sent out an offense featuring only four offensive linemen and one running back lined up as an ineligible receiver, confusing and infuriating the Ravens. Baltimore’s John Harbaugh is a good coach, too, but he had just been out-coached and he was so angry about it that he ran onto the field to yell at the officials, drawing a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct.

“Nobody’s ever seen that before,” a still-angry Harbaugh said after the game.

When Harbaugh says no one had ever seen it before, what he really is saying is that no one had ever thought of it before. Harbaugh certainly hadn’t thought about it before, and neither had any of his assistants or his players, and that’s why they were completely ill-equipped to handle it. Belichick had out-smarted them."

NFL finds Patriots used underinflated footballs
1). Did they check the balls Indy was using?
2). Indy scored 7 points in the entire game. Did Patriots game balls affect Indy's offense as well?
3). The Patriots scored 17 points with the underinflated balls, and 28 points with properly inflated balls.

From the Globe:

"After the pick, and the removal of the allegedly-deflated ball from the game, the Patriots outscored the Colts 28-0. Much of New England's offense damage came courtesy of LeGarrette Blount, who steamrolled the Colts for 148 yards and three touchdowns. Blount could have done that carrying a bowling ball against Indianapolis' impotent defense."

Enough said!!! :roll:

How pathetic is it that the NFL has not even made an official ruling on the matter yet they have allowed all this information to leak out on the investigation?All these details are coming out from some unknown "official source?"

I agree that if they are going to check our footballs then they should have checked theirs as well!

Unless for some reason the NFL officials come out and say "Oh wait, we know what happened and it wasn't the Patriots fault at all", the Pats will not live this down in our lifetimes. It doesn't matter that we would have won anyways. No one is denying that. But this is all we're going to hear about until the end of time.

The simple fact is, if this weren’t the Patriots, it wouldn’t be an issue. Tampering with the football NFL equivalent of speeding: everyone does it, and they only get burned when they do it too recklessly or in too fast a car. And the Patriots drive the hottest rod in the league.

Take Aaron Rodgers, who in November was subject to fawning by CBS commentators over his practice of overinflating his footballs. Or Eli Manning, whose months-long process of choosing and preparing his footballs was detailed two years ago by the New York Times.

Earlier this season, during a particularly cold game, Panthers sideline attendants were caught warming balls on the sidelines in open defiance of rules prohibiting this. Their punishment? A reminder not to do it again. And this morning, reports surfaced that former Buccaneers quarterback Brad Johnson admitted to paying bribes to have his footballs doctored before Super Bowl XXXVII— a contest his team won.

"Pat" is right - we are never going to hear the end of this - either from the media, and especially from from all the "Patriot Haters". After all, we still hear people bash The Pats about "Spygate", rumors of other teams having radio/headset communication issues during games, and the infamous "Snow plow incident" from DECADES ago.

And Carson is probably right that this whole thing likely would not be such a big deal if it was some other team who got caught, and that it's likely a common practice throughout the league. And NO, it didn't effect the final outcome as the Patriots were clearly far superior to Indianapolis - hell, even a few of the Colts players themselves have said so.

But any way you slice it this is enormously embarrassing for the Patriots organization - and for Patriot fans whether some want to admit it or not (and listening to the sports radio talk shows, many fans admit to being embarrassed - and infuriated). I can only imagine what Robert Kraft is thinking right now. He must be absolutely livid.

I'll say it again,nothing is OFFICAL yet!This information coming out is all gossip.The league should be embarrassed.What happened to being INNOCENT until proven guilty???I hate people who jump to conclusions before hearing the final results!Let's hear the FACTS from the NFL before we pass judgement. :roll: But until the NFL releases the findings we won’t know if it’s one ball that was at 10.5 PSI a few were at 11.5 and a few others were closer to 12.2.We don't know yet!


There are a lot of things we don't know!One of them is physics.I thought this was an interesting article by a Martin Schmaltz, a Professor of Physics at Boston University:

"An issue is where the balls were tested prior to the game. If the balls were tested indoors, where the temperature was likely above the 50 degree temperature outdoors Sunday, then the pressure inside the ball would drop once the ball is moved outdoors and begins to cool off.

“If they had inflated the balls inside the building and put it to the minimum amount, and then brought it outside to temperatures that were about 30 degrees lower, that would drop the PSI by between 1 and 2,” Schmaltz explained.

According to Schmaltz, once the temperature of the air inside the ball drops to the temperature of the air outside the ball, the PSI would be changed. Schmaltz estimated that it would take no more than 30 minutes for the temperature of the air inside the ball to acclimate to the temperature of the air outside."

Another interesting article that makes you think this whole inflation issue was a "sting!" Just amazes me the level of hatred out there for Bill and the Pats because of all their success!!!


"Wednesday night, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported that the league planned during the week to check the ball pressure of the Patriots footballs at halftime of the win over the Colts.

The league, according to Glazer, had been tipped off to the Patriots using under-inflated balls.

That raises two questions. First, why didn’t the league reach out to the Patriots and let them know there were concerns and they needed to be aware they were being monitored?

Second, if the league suspected the Patriots were using underinflated footballs and thought that would impact the game, why would even allow a chance that the game would be compromised?

If the answer is that the NFL wanted to “catch” the Patriots – Belichick in particular – red-handed, then they risked the Patriots gaining a first-half advantage over Indianapolis in the AFC Championship to do so.

Which, to me, would show just how deep the enmity for Belichick and the Patriots run at the league level. They would rather set him up than ensure the game isn’t compromised."

Of course people are interested if one of the most successful organizations is violating the rules, nobody cares if the bad teams are cheating. Lets face it if you are cheating and losing, you really suck as an organization.

If I was the NFL i would be pissed about the whole thing, not because somebody may have been deflating the game balls, but that this is all that anybody is talking about instead what a great superbowl this could be with two the three best teams in the game playing each other.

In a season full of bad press, this is the last thing the NFL needs.

To quote Brady:

Hum,maybe someone will start a war somewhere???

It's the NFL that is continuing this!If the NFL wants to put an end to it, then they should come out with the results of their findings.Be done with it!I blame them for letting out these "leaks!" It's an embarrassment!As if their integrity couldn't be any lower after the Ray Rice incident!!!

Well watched both press conferences and Bill and Tom are both lying their assess off, over what is a minor issue (footballs equivalent to the spitball). Did find it surprising that Brady stated that the NFL has not contacted him yet, if he is telling the truth on that the NFL has got to be the biggest group of idiots to come along in a while.

The league is what 10 days from it's show case event and it is allowing this to be the story. After the season the league office has had, they should all be fired.

Sorry, and many others believe they are lying their asses off. The NFL should have dealt with this immediately and ruled no latter then Tuesday, letting it drag on for a week only makes them look like the fools they have been all season. Not surprised though, the Commissioner and his staff have mishandled every issue that has come up this year.

You issue a fine and move on, let the team appeal and quietly recind after the season is over. Considering the beatdown the Patriots issued in the second half, there was no competitive edge gained before the balls were changed. Again, league is screwing up the PR heading into the signature event of the year.

I think the NFL wants to come down hard on them, but there's simply too much money at stake with the Superbowl. Lots of people have spent serious cash on advertising, and they don't want a Belichick-less and Brady-less Patriots team to have to play, which would basically be handing the Seahawks a bye.
