Aaron Rodgers prefers to play with over-inflated footballs

Aaron Rodgers won't be accused of deflating footballs to help the Green Bay Packers' offense.

Tom Curran of CSNNE.com did some digging after the New England Patriots were accused of using somewhat deflated footballs in their AFC championship game romp over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

"(Rodgers) said something [that] was unique," Simms revealed. "[Rodgers said] 'I like to push the limit to how much air we can put in the football, even go over what they allow you to do and see if the officials take air out of it.' Because he thinks it's easier for him to grip. He likes them tight."

As Curran astutely points, out, "Ball manipulation could be an NFL epidemic."
