NFL Quickly Clears Up Deflated Football Issue

While the Steelers easily disposed of their cross state rival on Thursday night 31-14, an allegation of a deflated football took the headlines on Friday morning.

Eagles sideline “reporter” and we use that term lightly, Howard Eskin, described a football on the Steelers sideline to look like a marshmallow.

The NFL quickly explained the situation this morning.

“All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process and all proper procedures were followed,” league spokesman Michael Signora told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette.

“In the third quarter, a football that was found to be defective was removed from play and will be sent back to [manufacturer] Wilson for review.”

So there you have it conspiracy theorists. The football was defective. No wonder it looked like a marshmallow. The idea that a football that was nearly completely flat was used on the field is ridiculous in its self. You don’t think the ref spotting the football wouldn’t notice when it melted around his fingers?

Even Eagles fans didn’t buy Eskins tweets and think he’s an idiot.

And obviously Eskin needs a little help with his their/there/they’re choices.
