IT'S A DEFLATIONARY EPIC:

In your face, Roger Goodell (Steve Buckley, September 23, 2016, Boston Herald)

It's not a question of if Roger Goodell broke his hand while watching last night's Gillette Stadium showdown between the Patriots and the Texans. It's really just a question of exactly when it happened.

My money is on that 27-yard run by Jacoby Brissett, which took place with 1:54 remaining in the first quarter of the 27-0 victory against the always-in-over-their-heads Houston.

And not just because the run was electrifying, even though it was.

And not just because it culminated with Brissett plunging into the end zone for his first career NFL touchdown, even though it did.

No, it was this: The Patriots have turned Tom Brady's Deflategate suspension into a spring break Fort Lauderdale kegger.

And since the entire point of Deflategate was to scrape the Patriots' collective noses across the pavement out in front of NFL Headquarters, this is a disaster.

It's a disaster for Goodell. It's a disaster for NFL owners who've long believed the Patriots to be in need of some serious comeuppance. It's a disaster for fans in New York, in Indy, in Baltimore -- in short, in Everywhere Else in the World -- who've longed to see those cheatin', lyin' Patriots pay a price for their cheatin' and lyin'.
