Ex-Cowboy Darren Woodson: ‘Tom Brady isn’t believable at all’
The New England Patriots departed Boston before the blizzard arrived, but this organization remains in eye of the storm. A FOX Sports report from Jay Glazer on Monday said the NFL has interviewed a Patriots locker room attendant who allegedly took footballs from the officials’ locker room after they’d been approved.
The league has obtained video surveillance of the attendant, which makes you wonder if officials were already running a sting operation on the Patriots. And was catching the Patriots in the act worth allowing the Colts to be at a competitive disadvantage in the first half?
Patriots owner Robert Kraft offered a strong defense of Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quaterback Tom Brady. He also took a swipe at the league.
"If the (Ted) Wells investigation is not able to definitively determine that our organization tampered with the air pressure in the footballs, I would expect and hope that the league would apologize to our entire team and in particular, Coach Belichick and Tom Brady for what they have had to endure this past week," said Kraft. "I am disappointed in the way this entire matter has been handled and reported upon. We expect hard facts as opposed to circumstantial leaked evidence to drive the conclusion of this investigation."
Kraft and Belichick both think this story has been blown out of proportion, and they may have a point. But the league’s not sweeping this under the rug.
On Monday, I asked former Cowboys safety Darren Woodson to choose who was less believable between Belichick and Brady. He went with Brady.
"Knowing a guy like Brady, you cannot tell me that he’s going to rely on someone else to take a little air out the ball," Woodson said. "That’s a conversation. That’s an absolute conversation that he had. Tom Brady isn’t believable…at all."
On Tuesday, the Patriots will be the first team at media day. They will be asked about deflategate.
And they will continue to wait for that apology.
