Deflated: The NFL says it is investing reports that the New England Patriots, who will play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, used partially deflated footballs in their lopsided win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The Patriots were caught stealing opponents’ coaching signals in 2007.
Among the Patriot cheats that Seattle will watch for during the Super Bowl: throwing Skittles in front of Marshawn Lynch just before the snap; sending Delilah to give Russell Wilson and shave and a haircut; and convincing the refs to throw a penalty flag for every Steve Raible “Holy catfish!”
