Arsenal's Eduardo Da Silva injured in outrageous tackle, possibly ending his career. : A truly horrific injury, broken pieces of bone were sticking out of his sock as he was stretchered of the field. This is the sort of injury that you never truly recover from (See Alex Smith). I hope the FA bans Martin Taylor for life.

NFL Pick 'Em, Week 5: Batted Ball Edition

Oh boy, Matt Hasselbeck apparently has a bacterial infection and is hoping to make it through all four quarters. I'm going to really regret that lock.

11 of 12 Patriots' Balls Deflated, ESPN Reports

I appreciate the effort you put into that, hincandenza. Your data definitely makes this all less clear-cut in my mind. Thank you.

11 of 12 Patriots' Balls Deflated, ESPN Reports

There is a handy calculator for doing Gay-Lussac's Law temperature vs pressure problems on line. I ran the numbers assuming a beginning temperature of 30C (303.15 Kelvin) and an ending temperature of 10C (283.15 Kelvin), and a beginning pressure of 12.5 psi.

The temperature arguments are interesting (even if I barely passed my physics courses back in college), but a former NFL referee said that when the balls for both teams were checked at halftime only the New England ones were deflated.

If the weather conditions are to blame for the sudden deflation of all 12 of the Pats' footballs, 11 of which were severally underinflated, how is it possible the Indy balls all checked out?

Patriots crush Colts in the rain

Ugh, come on man, that's just an absurd accusation.

I wasn't accusing anyone of anything, and as I said above, it clearly wouldn't have had an outcome on the game. There were plenty of caveats in my post.

As far as losing in a blowout... got to disagree with you. The Colts have looked thoroughly outclassed by the Patriots for three consecutive seasons. It's not been because they were outsmarted, or because NE has more talent. For whatever reason, Indy's current coaching staff has been utterly unable to stop the Pats from running the football down their throats. So no, I'd have liked to see a somewhat close game just as a sign of improvement.

Patriots crush Colts in the rain

Speaking of Belicheat, there is a report that the Patriots were deflating footballs against the Colts on Sunday.

Not that it had any outcome on the game (deflated footballs weren't letting Blount gouge Indy for massive chunks of yardage). Just leaves a sour taste in my mouth, if true.
