Brace for impact, that’s what Tennessee is doing as they head into this weekends Divisional Round as massive underdogs in a playoff game at Gillette Stadium.
It seems like Tennessee is preparing for the loss by setting up the cheater card. One sports writer for The Tennessean wants to remind everyone, “the Patriots are confirmed cheaters”:
“Bill Belichick is one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. And a cheater,” the author wrote. “Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. And probably a cheater.”
“No, Patriots fans, the fact that Belichick is incredibly good at his job does not invalidate the evidence resulting from the ‘Spygate’ investigation of 2007,” Rexrode wrote. ” … No, non-Patriots fans, ‘Spygate’ and ‘Deflategate,’ the case of Brady using slightly deflated footballs for better grip in the cold of a 2015 AFC title game blowout of the Colts, does not invalidate any of the achievements of Belichick and Brady.”
He goes on to mention that Patriots fans are the only ones who question the validity of both Deflategate and Seth Wickersham’s recent report of turmoil inside Gillette Stadium.
The only people that can’t understand deflate gate are children under the ages of 9, we conducted our own experiment with time lapse video, and guess what, balls deflate in the cold. It’s science.
This article by the Tennessean is to simply prepare oneself for losing and feeling better about that fact. Perhaps he should dive into the Tennessee Titans page on “YourTeamCheats.com“. Then come up with a more original argument.
