Patriots' Tom Brady on Deflategate: 'My feelings got hurt'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

If you have been out of the loop for the last week, then you might be unaware the Patriots have been under a lot of scrutiny since the AFC title game due to improperly inflated footballs used against the Colts. The media hoopla has transformed the controversy into what we know as Deflategate.

If you haven't been out of the loop, then you are well aware of the nonstop coverage it has received the last week and despite the Patriots pleas for it to go away, it just won't.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had to deal with the backlash from Deflategate, and he found himself talking about the subject again Monday morning during an interview with WEEI.

“It’s all speculation,” Brady said. “I’ve tried to wrap my head around it, too. I’ve done that and I’m trying to move past that, because I continue to try to rehash things. I personalized a lot of things and thought this was all about me, and my feelings got hurt. Then I moved past it, because it’s not serving me. What’s serving me is try to prepare for the game ahead. I’ll deal with whatever happens later. I’ll have my opportunity to try to figure out what happened and figure out a theory like everyone else is trying to do. But this isn’t the time for that. Honestly, I’m not interested in trying to find out right now, because we have the biggest game of our season ahead.”

One topic Brady didn't have a problem addressing was the speculation coach Bill Belichick threw him under the bus during a press conference on Thursday. But Brady came to the defense of Belichick, who has won three Super Bowls as the Patriots coach.

“I’ve never once felt that we’re not on the same page,” Brady said. “He’s a great coach. He’s the only coach I’ve ever played for; he’s the only coach I’d ever want to play for. There’s a lot of people over the years that have criticized him, but I’d say there’s not one player who’s ever played for him who’s not had an unbelievable amount of respect for him and how he prepares and his diligence and his preparation."

Patriots' Tom Brady meeting with NFL after Super Bowl 49
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady doesn't expect to meet with the NFL until after Super Bowl XLIX, according to NFL.com.

The Patriots have been in the headlines all week due to Deflategate, and it appears the situation won't be resolved until after the season. "I believe they're going to do [a meeting] after the season," Brady said. "So we'll deal with it after this game. I think everybody is locked in, ready to go for the Super Bowl." Both Brady and coach Bill Belichick have held separate press conferences during the week to deny the team's involvement in deflating their footballs. 

The Patriots are subject to punishment from the NFL if the league finds any wrongdoing during the investigation.

Matthew Slater: NFLPA 'instructed' Pats not to address Deflategate
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots special teamer Matthew Slater told reporters that the NFL Players Association has "instructed" New England players to not publicly address Deflategate, according to the team's official website. The 29-year-old Slater is a team representative for the union.

"I'd love to get into that with you, but we have been instructed by our union as players to reserve comment on this situation," Slater said. "It's an ongoing investigation, so in order to protect our players, we’re going to go ahead and not talk about that."

The NFL found 11 of 12 game balls the Patriots used in the first half in Sunday's AFC Championship against the Colts were significantly underinflated after being deemed legal before the game. The investigation is being led by NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash and Ted Wells. The league has yet to release its findings.

Coach Bill Belichick also addressed the media in an impromptu press conference to reveal that his team conducted an "internal study," which revealed that the Patriots "followed every rule to the letter."

Like Slater, Belichick vowed not to speak on Deflategate again. New England will square off against Seattle in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.

Belichick on Deflategate: Pats 'followed every rule to the letter'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed a packed room of reporters on Saturday to announce that the team conducted an "internal study," which revealed that the Patriots "followed every rule to the letter."

"I believe now 100 percent that I personally, and we as an organization, have followed every rule to the letter," Belichick said. ".. At no time was there any intent whatsoever to try to compromise the integrity of the game or to gain an advantage."

Earlier in the week, Belichick admitted he had no knowledge of any wrongdoing by anyone on the Patriots' staff. He told reporters he's "embarrassed" about how much time he has spent learning about this topic relative to the Super Bowl. He also said the climate and indoor/outdoor environment played a factor in his in-depth study.

"We simulated a game day situation, in terms of the preparation of the footballs and where the footballs were at various points in time during the day or night as the case was Sunday," Belichick said, per Boston.com. "Our preparation process for the footballs is what we do. I can't speak for anybody else, and that process we have found raises the PSI approximately one pound. So that process of creating a tackiness, a texture... the right feel, whatever that feel is – it's a sensation for the quarterback – that process elevates the PSI by approximately one pound based on what our study showed, which was multiple balls, multiple examples in the process as we would do for a game. It's not one football."

Belichick found that game balls taken outside after being prepped lose 1.5 PSI of air pressure.

The NFL found 11 of 12 game balls the Patriots used in the first half in Sunday's AFC Championship against the Colts were significantly underinflated after being deemed legal before the game. The investigation is being led by NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash and Ted Wells. The league has yet to release its findings.

As for Belichick, he vowed not to speak of Deflategate again, as his team prepares to fly to Arizona for the Super Bowl.

"This is the end of this subject for me, for a long time," Belichick said.
