Deflate this! Tom Brady’s dad hopes Patriots score 60 against Colts

If Tom Brady Sr. is right, this Sunday’s New England PatriotsIndianapolis Colts game could be a blowout.

The Colts are hosting the undefeated Patriots on “Sunday Night Football” in a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship, which New England won 45-7. However, that game will always be remembered for what happened after the final whistle blew: Deflategate.

Sunday presents the first chance for quarterback Tom Brady and his teammates to exact some revenge against the Deflategate whistle-blowers, but the Patriots weren’t about to say that publicly.

So the New York Daily News’ Gary Myers asked Brady’s father for his thoughts on the Deflategate rematch. He was a bit more forthcoming.

“The main thing I want is to see them win. As long as they have one point more than the Colts, I’m fine,” Tom Brady Sr. told Myers. “That being said, I’d like to see them put 60 points on the board and love to see Tom throw for 500 yards and eight touchdowns. That’s me dreaming. That kind of comes from me.”

He added: “I don’t have any inside information that, ‘Yeah, we’re going to pick them apart.’ Tommy never says that. He always says, ‘We’re going to win.’”


Brady Sr. was outspoken about his son’s innocence in Deflategate from the start. He criticized the Wells Report when it was released, and he even called into a radio show to defend his son.

Ultimately, he got to see his son’s suspension overturned by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman. That part isn’t a dream for Brady Sr.
