FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tom Brady’s lawyers demanded that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recuse himself from the Super Bowl MVP’s “Deflategate” appeal and threatened to go to court unless the four-game suspension is overturned.

Tom Brady is right; this week’s report asserting that he “was at least generally aware” of a plot to deflate footballs for the AFC championship did nothing to tarnish January’s Super Bowl victory. Not at all.
@ JPosnanski The deflated football report is longer than the “Investigation of the My Lai Incident” report. What is wrong with us? @Golfbybryan The only way to fix this is to put Tom Brady to death, retract the franchise and retroactively award the Seahawks the SB.
Thursday: When the NFL finally decided to release the Wells Report on the Patriots’ cheating, every deflated ball joke that’s ever been written was dusted off and thrown against the wall. On that wall was a picture of Tom Brady, who will have to go the rest of his life with the image of shrunken footballs hanging over his head. And no, that wasn’t meant to be a joke or a double entendre or anything. That’s how silly this whole mess seems, yet it’s actually serious.
SALEM, Mass. – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Thursday night the scandal surrounding his use of deflated footballs in the NFL playoff last season hasn’t detracted in any way from his Super Bowl title. “Absolutely not,” Brady told a friendly university crowd in his first public appearance since an NFL investigation concluded Brady likely knew Patriots employees were cheating.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – As a kid, years before he became a pretty good quarterback in his own right, Tom Brady idolized Joe Montana. Now, at age 37, Brady owns just as many Super Bowl championships – and just as many Super Bowl MVP awards – as the Pro Football Hall of Famer.
PHOENIX – Russell Wilson is the next Tom Brady. Probably. The question is, does the torch get passed today or somewhere further down the line?

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The two men most responsible for delivering wins for the New England Patriots both said Thursday they have no explanation for how footballs used to reach the Super Bowl were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he has not been contacted by the NFL, even as league officials investigate whether the team cheated against the Colts.
For Russell Wilson’s Seahawks to become the first team in a decade to win consecutive Super Bowls, they’ll have to beat the most recent group to do it, Tom Brady’s New England Patriots.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Step by step, Andrew Luck has climbed into the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks. In each of his three seasons, he and the Indianapolis Colts got one game closer to the Super Bowl.

SEATTLE – Game plans vary from week to week, opponent to opponent. Any NFL coach will scoff at the notion there’s a formula that works the same against everyone. The exact opposite is true when constructing a contender. The basics must be adhered to:
