Hollywood couldn’t script this any better, Tom Brady has been suspended 4 games for his part in the football deflation scandal by the league. Here is the part I was referring to, Tom’s first game returning from suspension is against: wait for it, the Colts. Yes, the same team that was involved in tipping off the league about the suspected practice. The Patriots were also fined 1 million dollars and 2 draft picks taken away.
The team has remained quiet since being implemented as the team who alerted the league, now they will have to face the wrath of Brady who will be looking to exact some revenge against the Colts. The Luck lead Colts have only faced the Patriots at Gillette Stadium and have not been close really in any of those meetings, now they finally get the champions at home with angry Tom Brady.
Make no mistake about it, the Patriots will be motivated, Brady will be motivated, Belicheck will be, so will the Colts be? That is the million dollar question, and reading the tea leaves it looks like now is the the opportunity for the Colts to slay the dragon. Brady could be showing signs of rust, due to inactivity just as the Colts could be riding a wave of success. It’s hard to say at this point but I think the team won’t be embarrassed at home, that I believe. Will the beat them? Again, I hope, but an angry Brady will make this more difficult, at least it should on paper. I guess we get to find out on October 18 on Sunday Night Football on NBC!
