Gronk says Pats won’t be distracted by, or motivated by, #DeflateGate

Getty Images

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski debuted his autobiography on Tuesday, and the book tour for It’s Good To Be Gronk included a trip to PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio.

The book, which focuses on his own experiences growing up and playing football from high school to college to the NFL, doesn’t delve into the experiences of teammates or any other topics that could create issues with others. Which is a very smart move when your head coach is Bill Belichick.

For example, the book says nothing about the experiences of the other tight end drafted the same year as Gronkowski. Indeed, the name “Aaron Hernandez” doesn’t appear anywhere in the book.

Also missing from the book is any reference to #DeflateGate, directly or indirectly. The January 2015 AFC title game gets only one paragraph in the 215 pages, with nothing about the issue of football air pressure or the investigation sparked by the Colts.

So I asked Gronk on Tuesday whether #DeflateGate will be a distraction for himself or the team, especially with quarterback Tom Brady facing a four-game suspension, subject to the ruling on his appeal and possible litigation.

“Just gotta worry about myself and worry about what I gotta do to help out the team the most and worry about my job,” Gronkowski said. “Just gotta take all the outside distractions and just block them. Put a block on all that, whatever it is, whatever’s going on, and just worry what I gotta do in order to help out the team.”

The last scandal involving the Patriots — Spygate in 2007 — seemed to give the Patriots extra motivation to win and to win big, week in and week out. So how much extra motivation comes from #DeflateGate?

“We stay motivated all year around,” Gronkowski said. “We just want to be humble, we just want to go in every single day, from the first day of camp, through camp, preseason, first game, we just want to keep just grinding, just worry about what’s ahead of us that day, and just do our own job.”

There’s that phrase again: Do your job. It looks like it wasn’t just a slogan for the 2014 season, but a motto that perhaps becomes more important than ever as the Patriots prepare to try to defend their title with uncertainty still surrounding the most important position on the team.

From Gronkowski’s perspective, the ability to avoid saying anything that could get him in trouble with his coach or his team highlights the work hard/play harder mentality that comes through in his book. Still youthful and exuberant and at times over the top in his pursuit of good times when it’s time to have fun, Gronkowski values the effort necessary to achieve a high degree of success in the NFL.

  1. Thanks for using the term scandal, so we are all clear by the word distraction.
    Spygate
    tuck rule
    Brady rule
    deflate gate
    star player is a serial murderer

    Enjoy your legacy.

  2. Gronk knows the difference between talking and winning, and while he plays the clown in the off season, when it’s time to grind it out, best to get out of his way. Great player and unlike some NFL players knows how to handle his earnings. This guy will never be broke, but he will break a few others playing this game and that’s no lie. Go Gronk, a pleasure to watch if your love this game.

  3. “we just want to be humble”
    That’s hysterical! The Pats are the most arrogant, condescending, and classless players in the entire league.
    Remember when Brady said Baltimore should learn the rules?
    That’s as low-class as it gets. Also, Kraft has been anything but classy during deflategate. If anyone calls this organization humble and classy then they don’t know the meaning of the words.

  4. was he supposed to say “well our SB run was tainted so that sucks”?????? Ofcourse he is going to take the win and walk away and say nothing of it, any player would. However 31 other teams and fans have a different opinion

  5. Belichick is always one step ahead of the media who tried and failed to bring his team down several times last season. The pats are Us Against the world naturally so using deflategate as a catalyst would only serve… oh screw it, they are going to kill every team with a healthy Gronk. Did I mention Brady is more motivated than ever before if that’s even possible.

  6. Of course New England will not be distracted or motivated by #Deflategate because the deflation of footballs never happened. It was nothing but a figment of imagination.

    How do you get distracted or motivated by a figment of imagination?

  9. So many sensitive haters on here, apparently offended by and scared of successful teams.
    The “most arrogant team”,? Ha!

    as far as arrogance goes, they’re at the bottom of the list. With Seattle at the top, along with their transient, fair weather fan base. Baltimore should learn the rules and it’s not the first time NE has innovated and set the tone for teams all around the league to try and keep pace with us,
    e.g. the hurry up offense a few years back.

    All you haters are exactly that; Distractions and noise. As Patriots fans we must tune you all out.
    Your words are meaningless, worthless strings of binary drivel routing across the internet and failing time and time again to take any shine of the 4 Lombardis at Patriot place.

    Hate one Distractions.
    WE DON”T CARE WHAT YOU THINK

    Superbowl CHAMPS, BABY!

  10. “Do your job. It looks like it wasn’t just a slogan for the 2014 season, but a motto that perhaps becomes more important than ever ”

    Uh, Belichick has been using that statement for many many years, far before 2014. And its not a “slogan”, its the way he’s managed players for as long as he’s been with the Pats.

  11. Haha, I don’t look to my favorite NFL teams, their owners, coaches, or star players, for humility, values, morality, etc…… I am a fan of the Patriots cause I grew up watching the team, I root for them to win, and I watch for sheer entertainment value. That is all.

    Some of you need to grow up and stop taking this so seriously. Stop looking for class, humility, and morals in the NFL. Haha, it’s NOT THERE! Anywhere.

  12. Gronk will make 25% less than what Thomas and Bryant are attempting to collect from their teams right now. Now ask yourself self who impacts their offense more. All 3 catch 6 passes a game on a good day. Gronk has a slight advantage in the TD department. But which player directly influences the offense when the ball is not thrown to him? All 3 can play the decoy game and receive maximum attention. But only one can also directly effect the run game…..Gronk….acting as 3rd tackle, sealing blocks, pulling, etc. And Gronk is not an ordinary TE blocker….he dominates on the line……all at a discount to the diva WRs.
    Belichick was an economics major in college and it is easy to see how he wants his cap dollars deployed. TEs impact an offense on every down……That is why he goes to the ends of the Earth seeking TEs, why he creates his offense around TEs…….cost effective use of cap dollars. As Jerry Jones plays checkers, BB is playing triple tiered chess….and dominating

  14. You can’t simply dismiss the accusations and say that the Patriots never did anything wrong. I don’t deny the NFL screwed up the investigation but it’s not one or the other. The Patriots push the limits and have been proven to go beyond on occasion.

    Personally I think they got off easy the first time around. Maybe the NFL was over reactive this time around based on passed behaviors. Who knows.

    What I do know is they managed to keep the NFL in the headlines during the entire off season and continued to make their $$$$$$

  16. Best player in the league aside from the QBs.

    Best team in the league aside from my colts. HAHA…OK, even a colts fan can’t say that w/a straight face!

  17. Pats4rings,
    Oh its there, there are plenty of classy people in the NFL. It doesn’t exist with the Pats and seemingly is a cultural thing in NE to show zero class whatsoever. Just because you lack class and your parents never taught you how to behave doesn’t mean everyone else lacks it.

  18. Colts fan, you are not fooling anyone. Its pretty obvious you are a Pats fan pretending to be a Colts fan because nobody respects the opinions of Pats fans and nobody reads their comments.

  19. I’m very proud of Gronk! He has a good group around him. Bought a bus to drive him around, and has put away every cent he has made from his football contracts for the future. He uses his money from endorsements to live on. Some of you idiots that ridicule the Patriots every chance you get should take a look at some of the players on your rosters and what dummies they are. If they don’t like the millions being offered, go get a real job for $10/hr.

  20. Remember: the Patriots were the only team in the playoffs last year that didn’t end their seasons with a ridiculous meltdown. Gronk is no genius, but he’s at least 20 iq points brighter than the image he sells to the media. The two are not unrelated.

  21. Considering Sean Payton had a huge poster of himself with “DO YOUR JOB” underneath it posted on the training facility field for the year he was suspended, I don’t think this is exactly an original idea of Belichick’s. I suspect they both had Tuna yelling it at them every day.

    except you trashboy as you comment on almost every Pats thread. Just another fan that the Patriots own a lot of space in your head.

  23. Rocksoup,
    Hate? The only people spewing hate are Pats fans. Their debate skills include discrediting every person who says negative things about the Pats by attacking their work, family, personal relationships, religious beliefs, and character, trying to call every other team cheaters, and finally calling people names who disagree with you.
    The real haters are Pats fans.

  24. NE has innovated…

    ____

    Other “innovators” include Rodriguez’s and Armstrong’s sophisticated approaches to get away with cheating.

    But they’re still cheaters.

    0 legit titles. 5 by cheating, 1 from the refs.

  26. ” It doesn’t exist with the Pats and seemingly is a cultural thing in NE to show zero class whatsoever. ”

    Funny when the other teams lise its very often followed by a cacophony of whining, complaining about refs, about the phase of the moon they were required to play the game during, anything but taking personal responsability.

    When the Pats lose a game they never do anything but take the loss on their own shoulders, say the other team outplayed them and say they have to work harder to avoid further losses.

    Of course our pc nanny state mob doesn’t see that because you’re too busy whining like the teams you follow.

  29. Harris: You couldn’t be more wrong !! I am a Hawks fan and the Pat’s deserved to win. I am not upset about the Pat’s winning at all,only about the way they got to the SB and their past history of skirting and/or breaking the rules. Like Montana stated: It may be a dumb rule,but Brady violated it and should admit it,take the punishment,and move on.BTW,the Hawks didn’t whine either.It was Sherman who went over to Brady right after the game and shook his hand.

  30. Goodell is a clown, his fault this is dragging on. He should of just gave Brady and Pats a fine and moved on. Now camp is about to start and they are still talking about it. Goodell the clown.

    Tuck rule wasnt cheating by any means………but its an example of Brady needing either cheating or outrageously ridiculous rulings to win. Dumbest rule of all time led to his first SB, had they lost that maybe Bledsoe starts again the following yr and Brady goes back to Obscurity. There is a reason he was drafted so late, he wasnt that good. And yes he’s seen a ton of success in Bills offense………but lets not kid ourselves, its BILL’s offense that makes brady great. Matt Cassell wont start for the bills and may not even make the team- but in Bill’s offense he won 11 games. Now if a guy who cant even make the bills squad can win 11 games in that system then Brady winning 12-14 games doesnt make him look so amazing. Slants and screens ALL DAY LONG. Any qb can manage that (as proven by cassell). He is a game manager. Again- theres a reason he was drafted so late and a reason he needs crazy rulings and cheating to stay consistent. Cassell managed 63% completion rate in that offense, and whats toms career completion percentage????? 63% go figure!!!! Tom is lucky he fell into Belichecks offense, on most other teams where they require the QB to THROW the ball more than 7 yds at a time he wouldnt be a starter. You have to work the offense around Tom, that doesnt make him amazing. Game manager who needs to cheat, thats his legacy.

  34. Why have the Patriots lost two #1 draft picks in the last decade again? According to Patriot fans it’s clearly not because of cheating.

  35. It came across the news this morning that Brady is to sue the NFL if the suspension isn’t eradicated. Doesn’t look like the actions of a guilty man. Haters have been hanging onto “cheater” like some how it makes their team winners. Once Brady is absolved of this sham what will the haters have left?
    There’s this………

    SUMMARY: In his book “Ineffective Habits of Financial Advisors”, former Buffalo Bills special teams coach John Steven Moore had this to say:

    “The wind can blow hard off of Lake Erie. It blows easterly, swooping over the left rim of Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium, down to the field and then back up over the luxury suites on the right. It can swirl and have a modest impact on the outcome of a football game. You can’t control the wind, but you can use it to your advantage — make it an opportunity.”

    “I was the special teams coach for the Buffalo Bills in the early 1980s. In our pregame warm-up, as we prepared to play the New England Patriots, the wind was blowing hard. I figured we could create a wind tunnel if we opened the east-side tunnel door of the stadium when New England was kicking against the wind. I worked with our equipment managers and told them, on my signal, to open the doors. Thinking back about it, I do feel a little bad for the New England punter. On his first punt against the wind, the ball came off his foot nicely, but then the wind puntied it right back at him. In a game with dozens of consequential plays, sometimes it’s just one that can make a big difference. I used the wind to our advantage. We won the game and that’s why I only feel a little bad.”

  45. there’s about a half dozen Patriots Haters that must sit on the PFT home page all day hitting the refresh button every 15 seconds so they can get in early on any articles that even remotely connect to the Patriots and bash away with their typical untruths, innuendo, and opinions that they claim to be facts.

    Ask yourself this.

    If anyone can do it and MC is your example then why didn’t they keep MC?

    He is younger, more mobile and he wasn’t coming off major knee surgery.

    And if Brady is just good because of BB “system” and the NFL is known as a copycat league then why hasn’t any other team tried to run the same “system”?

    Anyone who calls Brady a “system” QB proves they don’t have a clue.

    Exposing you as a fraud was easy because you did all the work. The fact you bring up tha last game where the Pats were playing for nothing and sat 3/4 of their starters makes you a mental midget.

  50. “Oh and last game Brady played against the bills he ‘owned and punked us’ on his way to being down 17-3 at halftime before his backup came in and did more work than Brady could in the second half

    Lolz its hilarious to see Bills fans hanging desperately to their only “victory” against the Pats in years.

    Of course the Pats didn’t play over half their starters, and by the second half it was almost all second and third stringers against the Bills 1st stringers.

    And the Pats players on the field had one primary goal, don’t get injured. I know its hard for the fans of a team who haven’t been in the playoffs this century to wrap their brains around facts like that, but there ya have it.

    Of course if it makes you feel better to pretend it was anything but a meaningless game and the Pats played all their starters when few of them were on the field, go to it.

  51. letsgobuffalo4,

    Brady’s career record vs Buffalo 23-2

    Believe that is a 92% winning record.

    I see? How about many Seahawks getting busted for PEDs? Guess that doesn’t count aye boys? Lol lmao

  58. I really enjoy the Patriot hater. They truly show a lack of rational thinking. Apparently they did not know the “tuck rule” existed prior to the Pats-Raiders game. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the officials did not invent the rule that was applied.

    And those that are critical of Gronk, it is obviously steeped in jealousy. Either due to lack of manliness, or the fact that he is the best TE in the league. A complete game changer. Has he even been removed from a game by a defense? Nope.

  59. Former Saints coach Jim Haslett admitted that he used steroids for one offseason early in his career around 1979-80 when he was a second-round pick of the Bills.

    In 1991, running back Don Smith allegedly tested positive for steroids before playing in Super Bowl XXV.

    In 1989, Linebackers Matt Jaworski and Tom Doctor as well as running back Sean Doctor were each suspended for four games for steroid use.

    In the late 1980s when the NFL started testing for steroids, the Bills had more players suspended than any other team.

  66. I can understand not liking Gronk because he has the “wrong” laundry on but to hate the guy? come on

    he is easily the best player at his position rather then a media over rated player – see Jeter

    he doesn’t hit kids, get DUIs, beat up women, get into bar fights, or have a dozen kids out of wedlock – see every other sport story

    I actually looked that up. Looks to me like Bills had 4 or 5 players during the decade of the 80s suspended. The problem with what you stated was during that time the list did not differeniate between steroid use and substance abuse. It was all on one list. The NFL had two separate policies for substances that can lead to suspension. One policy concerns the use of banned drugs that are specifically indicated to improve athletic performance (PEDs). The other policy concerns “substances of abuse” and includes drugs that may not enhance performance, but are indulged in for recreational purposes. I believe Robb Riddick might have been suspended for steroids. The rest on that list were for substance abuse. I do have to say though…..Let’s Go Buffalo’s comments today might be the dumbest I have read. Way off the mark.

    No, by “data” I mean that in order to be implicated for deflating footballs, footballs actually need to be deflated. Countless third party studies have proven out that all the balls were consistent with pressure loss from environmental factors and that they were at expected levels.
    Text messages, that could mean anything, taken eight months prior to this hoax don’t prove anything. All of which never state to deflate any balls below 12.5.

    _______________

    I’ve read the entire report as well. You’re not missing anything. There is no evidence mentioned in the report of Brady cheating.

    But there is documented evidence in the report of the following:

    1: That the League officials cheated during the Patriots/Jets game by inflating the Patriot’s footballs to 16 PSI (no investigation has been launched)

    2: That Brady knew the balls were over-inflated and got mad at the equipment managers about it.

    3: That the equipment managers tested the footballs after the Jets game and found that they were over-inflated by the officials.

    4: Confirmation that Brady had requested that the footballs be set at 12.5 PSI, within the legal limits.

    So, not only does the Well’s report show no evidence of cheating, it actually exonerates Brady.

    And while not proven, it is “more probable than not” that the reference to “the deflator” in the texts concerns deflating illegally over-inflated footballs back down to legal limits.

    Many teams have been called out multiple times for cheating, and in those cases they actually cheated and admitted it. Good lord, half the Seahawks team was suspended for PEDs. The Patriots were called out for breaking 3 rules. They illegally had a camera guy in plain view on the sideline filming, which was not hidden at all, and they possibly deflated some footballs for an advantage, which is was not even an advantage to them if they did it as their road record when they didn’t control the balls is the best in the league.

  84. Remember that time when Suggs looked like he saw a ghost when Cundiff’s kick was shanked left? And then remember Sherman’s “noooo noooooo nooooooooooo” after Butler intercepted the pass?

    FWIW, the fact is you do not know your facts. For example, the Broncos were fined and docked draft picks in 2001 and 2004 for cheating on the salary cap (lost 3rd round picks in 2002 and 2005). Two times is multiple times.

    Main difference between Broncos and Pats is that the Broncos had the good fortune of having a competent commissioner in place when they were cheating on the salary cap – and he docked them fairly. The Pats are stuck with Mr. Incompetent who even blames/frames them for the weather impacting the inflation of footballs.

    I love the “well deflating balls a little amount doesnt even help” approach. If brady deflated balls, then it helps him a lot or he wouldnt have risked it. For all the times i stole money from the bank during a game of Monopoly i never took a $1 or $5, its always $100’s or even $500. Their fumble ration changing overnight the same yr they changed the ruling about bringing ur own balls is crazy- according to a Boston paper the odds of that happening are “astronomical”, but yet pats fans think its ‘just a coincidence’. This yr we’ll see how many fumbles the team has, if it goes back to the amt from ’00-’06 then we know from ’07-’14 the deflating of balls helped them tremendously and all their winning was a joke.

  105. nepatriot1 says:

    Stop deflecting to other teams cheating. One player taking PED’s affects how many plays per game? The player on PED’s is prob involved in 10-12 plays (tackles, int’s, etc…). Deflating the ball u use affects every single offensive play (around 60). One has a MUCH bigger influence on the game then the other. Hence the much bigger punishment. If someone steals $1 would u say its the same as stealing a ferari b/c “stealing is stealing”? No, cheating is not all equal. And the patriots manage to take cheating to a whole new level time and time again.

  106. FWIW, the fact is you do not know your facts. For example, the Broncos were fined and docked draft picks in 2001 and 2004 for cheating on the salary cap (lost 3rd round picks in 2002 and 2005). Two times is multiple times.

    Although cheating on the cap <<< taping other team's plays so Shady knows what's coming or deflating the balls so your guys don't fumble.

    IMO.

    I love the “well deflating balls a little amount doesnt even help” approach. If brady deflated balls, then it helps him a lot or he wouldnt have risked it. For all the times i stole money from the bank during a game of Monopoly i never took a $1 or $5, its always $100’s or even $500. Their fumble ration changing overnight the same yr they changed the ruling about bringing ur own balls is crazy- according to a Boston paper the odds of that happening are “astronomical”, but yet pats fans think its ‘just a coincidence’. This yr we’ll see how many fumbles the team has, if it goes back to the amt from ’00-’06 then we know from ’07-’14 the deflating of balls helped them tremendously and all their winning was a joke.

    -/—-

    Except there is ZERO proof they deflated balls after inspection and the fumble stat article has been debunked over and over again.

    Try again.

    The only “joke” is Brady’s dominance over your Bills!

    Best player in the league aside from the QBs.

    Best team in the league aside from my colts. HAHA…OK, even a colts fan can’t say that w/a straight face!

    Yes and I’m a huge Pats fan and think we’re scum bag cheaters.

    Oh wait, I forgot to use my super secret pseudo name that fools no one.

    And are u really that dumb? When someone says “everyone outside of NE” we means everyone who isnt a pats fan. Not ppl who physically live exactly in NE lol. (ill dumb it down so you can understand it better, no worries bud i got your back). Anyone that’s not a patriots fan knows the titles are tainted. Here are 3 FACTS: #1 it took the worst rule in NFL history to push the patriots to their first super bowl with Brady (had that rule never been out- which every fan alive can agree it shouldnt have ever existed- then they wouldnt have gone to that first one). Then they win a few, good for them………….ohhhh but then we find out they have been videoing teams. Then the big joke is that they havent won a SB since being caught cheating. But here comes this year, good for them, an honest SB title right???? Ofcourse not, another cheating scandal. Any other team in the history of the NFL has as many cheating scandals and as many punishments for cheating as NE???? Nope. Those are facts.

    Stop deflecting to other teams cheating. One player taking PED’s affects how many plays per game? The player on PED’s is prob involved in 10-12 plays (tackles, int’s, etc…). Deflating the ball u use affects every single offensive play (around 60). One has a MUCH bigger influence on the game then the other. Hence the much bigger punishment. If someone steals $1 would u say its the same as stealing a ferari b/c “stealing is stealing”? No, cheating is not all equal. And the patriots manage to take cheating to a whole new level time and time again.


    And stop with the “competitive advantage”
    If that’s the case then what do some QBs like the ball at the high end and even over inflated (Rogers) are they all stupid? Did someone not let them in on the secret yet? “Hey Rogers if play with the ball at 12.5 instead of 13.5 it will be an advantage for you”

    HAHAHAHA the biggest joke is patriots fans saying there is “zero” evidence. Is that why an independent investigation found them guilty? Then the Commissioner (known for loving the Pats) saw the irrefutable evidence and was forced to punish them? As of right now they have been found guilty by anyone who isnt a pats fan. Take the tin foil of your head, its not a conspiracy, these are facts. Nothing has been “debunked” unless ur a patriots fan. Im sure Aaron Hernandez mom says he’s innocent, that’s great and all…….but ummm he was found guilty, just like Brady. Your boy Kraft gave Goodell his $44 million/yr salary b/c he is fair and just. Sorry if he is forced to punish ur team, but if your owner thinks Roger has made fair punishments up til now you cant complain when he hits u with a punishment.

  112. From Merriam-Webster:

    Irony — noun / iro-ny / plural: iro-nies

    1) The use of words that mean the opposite of what you really think, esp. in order to be funny

    2) Patriots fans desperately running to every post about the Patriots’ cheating to complain about people running to every post about Patriots’ cheating, esp. to complain that people do not acknowledge facts, while simultaneously concocting theories of league-wide conspiracies and blinding jealousies of a team that has one won Super Bowl in ten years.

    Pretty lame!

    I like how you tried to minimize all the success by saying “a team that has won 1 SB in 10 years”

    You left out the part about them playing in 3 in the last 10 years , 6 in the last 15 and have won 4 of those 6. And have been the most successful NFL franchise over the last 20 years. Yes 20 years, since 1994, the most wins, the most playoff wins the most SB appearances (7) most SB wins

    So you didn’t read the Wells report either?

    If you did you would know the report total exonerated the BB and Kraft. This is why fans are so pissed that he backed down.

    Oh yeah…….never mind. 🙁

  117. You Patsie* fans might be a little more believable if it wasn’t for the fact that your owner admitted cheating by accepting the punishment.
    Maybe Tammy should have done the same…..nobody would be talking about her now.

    ======

    Actually it was under 12.5 lbs.

    You see that’s why your owner confessed by action of paying the fine and accepting the loss of picks.

    It also explains why your fumbles fell by almost 50% upon the rule change.

    Patriots are good at cheating, until they get caught.

    If, if, if, whaa, whaa, whaa.
    Don’t worry bro I have your back. I remember when the Pats sucked to. You’re really frustrated that Buffalo cheats and they still haven’t made the playoffs or been relavent in over 20 years. Before that they defined the term “choker.” Keep hanging on to someday, and our cheating wasn’t as bad as your “cheating,” if it helps you cope with being NE’s doormat into the playoffs annually.

    Also 3 out of 4 colts balls under 12.5

    And the fumble story as been debunked over and over. Try and keep up.

  124. #1 it took the worst rule in NFL history


    I bet you think the worst rule in NFL history was the one where the field goal must go THROUGH the uprights not wide right.

    🙂

  125. Tom Brady is simply the greatest QB that ever graced an NFL football field with his presence. That is a fact.

    All other opinions are trash so there’s simply no point discussing them.

    🙂

  126. You can’t blame Gronk if he finds the glow from those FOUR BEAMING BRILLIANT SHINY RADIANT LUMINOUS ILLUSTRIOUS GLEAMING GLOWING SPARKLING BEAUTIFUL Lombardi trophies to be distracting.

    Well? Can ya?

    🙂

  127. Hahahaha! Look at the massive inferiority complex of Pats fans. I guess I would have one too if my team was considered the biggest cheaters in American sports history.

    You mean superiority complex! 🙂

    Unlike your Steelers who have not won a title without cheating or paid off officiating we EARNED our titles and EARNED the right to gloat and rub it in. 🙂

  130. Yep, there’s that big inferiority complex haha! Cheating attracts Bostonians like flies on poop! I love the cheatriot fairy tales, so adorable… Like a child who believes in Santa.

  131. “Tom Brady is simply the greatest QB that ever graced an NFL football field with his presence. That is a fact.

    ==============

    OMG, is there a better manifestation of the absurdity of Pats fans? So you state something is “a FACT,” then in the very next sentence mention “all OTHER OPINIONS…” (capitalization mine). More proof that even Pats fans don’t believe their own nonsense. Which is it, sport, a fact or an opinion? Never mind, you’ve clearly shown that you, like most other Pats fans, don’t know the difference.

  132. This is nice to think that they won’t be distracted, but…everytime Tom Shady throws an interception, every fumble, every dropped pass will invite speculation of what a deflated ball did to prop up the Patriots for the last 6 years.

  133. Gronkowski and Edelmen are great receivers. They played like Ravens. However, lets see how they play with a legally inflated football. They may not make the playoffs.
