Is the NFL admitting with these new "random" checks that they never cared about how much air was in a football or who handled footballs before or during a game? I don't see anything that mentions a calibrated air pressure gauge or the reason these will be random and not every game.
I guess you never went to the dump named Sullivan Stadium. That place was a freaking zoo. Guys pissing through the chain link fence in the last row of the 300 section. People setting stuff on fire for no apparent reason.
Keyshawn Johnson said that walking down the ramp from the locker room at the old Sullivan/Foxboro Stadium was the most intimidating thing. That was because the Stadium had chain link fences that separated the west side of the stadium from the north endzone. There was a small concrete ramp where the visiting team had to walk down.
How did we all forget about AstroTurf? I'm amazed half the guys who played in the 70s & 80's can even walk nowadays. What was the logic behind AstroTurf? Hey, lets lay a thin covering of fake grass over concrete. Only Miami in the AFCE had real grass back in those days.
Tuck rule: Overturned a Vinny Testaverde "fumble" in Week 2 of the 2001 season in Foxboro
Camera: Yep. The Pats were so sneaky they had the camera guy on the sideline
Brady Low Hit Rule: Please see the Carson Palmer low hit in the 2006 playoffs to see when this rule was passed
New eligibility rules: The other 31 teams were butt-hurt that that Patriots used a legal play.....3 times in a game
Edelman: An NFL player has never taken a big hit and stayed in the game?
New football handling rules: I haven't seen the report
Yep. Like clockwork. The only time the Pats haven't won the AFCE since 2003 was when Brady's knee exploded in the 1st half of the 1st game in 2008. Even then the Pats lost the division on a tie-breaker with an 11-5 record. Damn you Brett Favre!
