Are the New England Patriots Cheating…Again?

Being an Eagles fan, I have much anger towards the New England Patriots and their cheating ways. As many know, they’ve been under fire since being suspected of spying on other NFL teams, which essentially allowed them to know and anticipate their opponent’s play calling.

In their recent 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts, more fuel is being added to an already burning fire. There is an ingoing investigation against the Patriots in which 11 of 12 footballs were not inflated to the league standard during their AFC Championship victory. Having under inflated footballs, allows for better gripping and alters its path in-air.

It should be interesting to see this story unfold. Is it fair for them to advance at this point?

Wednesday Morning QB (Championship Weekend)

The Sport Addiction

The Super Bowl is almost here and the teams have been decided after an interesting championship weekend. Both games had plenty of storylines with the top ranked teams in each conference getting the chance to move to the Super Bowl. In the AFC there was a massive underdog led by the best young quarterback in the league as he tried to take on and beat a legend for the second week in a row. The NFC featured a second place team in a matchup of the tow powerhouses of the conference. It was a weekend of great football but when the dust settled there was a clear difference between the two conferences. The AFC and NFC have always been two very different conferences in the NFL. On one side was the old school NFC with traditional teams and on the other was the AFC with new teams and a new…

DA: Packer Nation is Left Picking Up Pieces

By Damon Amendolara

In all the hubub and hyperventilation surrounding Deflate-Gate, we are ignoring a fallen comrade. Has anyone noticed that giant block of cheese that’s been run over by a 16-wheeler and left in the freezing cold on the side of the highway? That’s Packer Nation, which is psychologically damaged and wondering how to pick itself up this week.

By now you know the story. With a 19-7 lead and just 5:00 to play Sunday, the Packers intercepted Russell Wilson yet again. Morgan Burnett, the man who picked it off, slid on the turf. The game seemed so cemented Green Bay was taking a knee. The Packers would be going back to the Super Bowl. I sarcastically tweeted: “And Roger Goodell will be rewarded for his strong leadership this season w/ Aaron Rodgers vs. Luck or Brady in the SB.” Boy, I had gotten ahead of myself like Burnett.

Bill Belichick compares Patriots’ playoff preparation to Dwight D. Eisenhower quote

For The Win

(Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports) (Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – William S. Belichick quoted Dwight D. Eisenhower Friday.

New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick was asked about the value of preparation going into Sunday’s AFC title game here against the Indianapolis Colts.

He referenced Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States and five-star general and supreme commander of allied forces in Europe during World War II.

“No matter how much preparation you do, it’s still going to be different in the game,” Belichick said at a press conference, sporting jeans, sneakers and a wind breaker cut off at the sleeves.

“It’s like going back to Dwight Eisenhower’s quote, (paraphrasing) preparation is everything until the battle starts, and then it doesn’t mean anything. Then you react to what happens in the game. In his case, what happens in the battle.”

Eisenhower’s quote: “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are…

Playoffs

This weekend we had some good playoff games. We had a surprising beat when the Colts beat the Broncos. Payton Manning just couldn’t seem to use “Omaha” to win this game. After the Colts winning 24-13 the Colts advance to verse the New England Patriots. The Patriots beat the Ravens after being down the whole game. The last quarter the Patriots threw everything they had. They even made a new play that scored a touchdown as Edelman completes the pass to Amindola. The Seahawks beat the Panthers after a good game, they won 31-17. They go against the Packers after they beat the Cowboys 26-21.

[nesn_embed service=springboard src=”http://cms.springboardplatform.com/embed_iframe/899/video/1270071/nesn003/nesn.com/10″]The New England Patriots will play their final road game of the regular season when they face the New York Jets in Week 16.

The Patriots are around 11-point favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The moneyline opened with New England at -470, but it is now at -550. New York opened at +400 and is now between +415 and +430. The total is set at 47.5 points.

The Patriots are 1-4 against the spread in their last five divisional road games. This also marks the 12th time since 1986 the team has been a double-digit road favorite. It won once in each of the last two years but failed to cover in both games. The OddsShark Computer predicts a 41-13 New England blowout. That would provide for a New England cover, and the OVER.

Green Bay is the only other double-digit favorite, and it also is on…

Michael Irvin explains why the Seahawks are dangerous: “They have crunk this thing up”

Every week during the NFL season, Showtime’s Inside the NFL crew predicts the outcome of some of the league’s most intriguing games. See what they had to say about Week 16’s top offerings and catch Inside the NFL at 9 p.m. ET/PT Tuesdays.

Colts at Cowboys, Sunday, 4:25 p.m.

DeMarco Murray’s injury is a red flag, as is the peculiar fact that the Cowboys have played much better on the road (7-0) than at home (3-4) this season. Still, some of the panel thinks they’ll get by the Colts (surprise, surprise: Michael Irvin is among them), though there’s some disagreement on that point.

Seahawks at Cardinals, Sunday, 8:30 p.m.

The Cardinals have the NFC’s best record and get the Seahawks at home, but will it matter against a Seahawks team that looks like it’s peaking at the right time and gets a third-string quarterback (Ryan Lindley)…
