Patriots head coach Bill Belichick picked a perfect day to hold a press conference with his new starting quarterback, Brian Hoyer on April Fools Day as he shared his excitement for next season.
Rob Gronkowski requested a trade to Tampa Bay on Tuesday not because his former QB Tom Brady is currently there but because he appears to believes the Buccaneers are actually pirates.
"You may be wondering if we purposefully deflated our balls and the answer is 'Yes'," admitted a smug and unapologetic Belichick. "Sure, we had home field advantage and a better all-around team, but is that ever enough to stick it to your opponent?"
After the New England Patriots declared they didn't alter their footballs in any manner and attributed the fluctuations in pressure to cold temperatures, skeptics pounced. One such individual was Bill Nye, noted thermal engineering expert and all-around creepy genius, who claimed that the explanation given by the Patriots was an absolute scientific impossibility.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperately wanted to trade for Rob Gronkowski and were willing to throw in even some of their most valuable assets.
