Greg and Steve discuss the Deflategate debacle with callers and give their theories as to what went down in Foxboro last week against the Colts. Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.

Ryan Hannable, WEEI –  Bill Belichick spoke Saturday afternoon for over 23 minutes on the Deflategate situation, maintaining the team didn’€™t do anything wrong and followed ‘€œevery rule to the letter’€ after conducting an internal investigation.

Here is his partial opening statement:

‘€œI want to take this opportunity to share this information. I’€™ve spent a significant amount of time this past week learning what I could learn, more than I could ever imagine to tell you the truth about ladders, air gauges, stitching, pressure, game day ball preparation, rub downs, so forth.

I’€™m trying to be as helpful as I can here with everything I have learned. Having coached for 40 years in the National Football League, played for several years, growing up in a football family, being around this game my entire life ‘€” it’€™s clear that I don’€™t know very much about this areas.

‘€œOver the last few days I have learned a lot more than I ever knew, exceptionally more. I feel like this is important because there have been questions raised and I believe now 100 percent that I have personally, and we as an organization have absolutely followed every rule to the letter. I feel on behalf on everyone in the organization, everyone that is involved in the organization that I needed to say something.’€

Belichick said he talked to people outside the organization and conducted their own internal study of the process. He said the Patriots’€™ process raises PSI approximately one pound. He also maintained the feel of the football is the most important part for the quarterbacks. The coach also stated the balls were never prepared in a heated environment and never were prepared outside or near to the team’€™s locker room.

‘€œIn this case I can say that we are as far as I know and everything that I can do, we did everything as right as we could do it. We welcome the league’€™s investigation into this matter.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it now because today proves it once and for all: Bill Belichick is a man of many geniuses, but none can match his ability to raise the Deflector Shields to full power and completely neutralize a controversy. He is the absolute all time master of standing up before the hysterical uneducated masses out for his blood and taking the torches and pitchforks right out of their hands with reason and logic.

He did it with Spygate. He did when they tried to turn Tim Tebow into the circus he became with the Jets. He did it when the media was trying to nail him to the wall on Aaron Hernandez like he was an unindicted co-conspirator. And he did it today.

This was like a man from the Enlightenment walking among people from the Dark Ages, teaching them about simple, deductive reasoning. This was Einstein walking into the Salem Witch Trials and cutting through the fear-mongering and superstition with the Scientific Method. And just to throw a human face on it for the great unwashed, he throws in a “My Cousin Vinny” reference. Brilliant.

Of course I have no doubt his defiance will have an impact on the primitive Flat Earthers who have been using things like the Patriots’ lack of fumbles as “evidence” the ball has been doctored. But fortunately for us, the Founding Fathers, in their infinite, reasoned wisdom saw fit to give us the gift of burden of proof so that witch doctors couldn’t just jam their hocus pocus down the throats of a gullible public.

Professor Belichick has done his experiments, run his tests and proven what I’ve been saying from the beginning: There’s nothing to this Deflategate ragtime and there never was. And now he’s defying the NFL to prove otherwise. They’ve had since Sunday night and haven’t come out with a thing, and if we gave them until the ending of the world they still wouldn’t.

They’re entitled to their own theories, but not their own facts. It’s science.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly and 3B Pablo Sandoval sat down with Mut and Bradford. Joe Kelly had a few interesting proclamations. First he said that 95% of pitchers use some sort of grip enhancer, and then he said he was going to win the Cy Young. Pablo leaned over and promised 10 HR's, explaining to Joe that the trick is to set the bar low.
