SOASTA, the leader in performance analytics, today unveiled the results of its 2016 Super Bowl Second Screen Survey.
The research revealed that the New England Patriots, who were recently eliminated from the NFL playoffs, are #1 when it comes to obnoxious fans. More than 1 in 3 Americans (38 percent) said that the Pats had the most obnoxious fans in the playoffs.
On Tuesday, commissioner Roger Goodell made it seem as though the NFL had no interest in releasing the data recorded this year on the PSI in footballs.
After looking bad in the public, the NFL’s story is changing. Dean Blandino, the NFL’s vice president of officiating, said on Sirius XM radio that the league has in fact not yet decided what it will do with the data recorded.
“We did spot checks throughout the year, and we measured PSI levels and recorded that information,” Blandino said, per The Boston Globe. “So right now, we’re evaluating the information."
In response to the Al Jazeera program, Manning’s agent, Tom Condon, assembled a legal team and retained crisis management czar Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush.
Manning’s crew sent a team of investigators to Indianapolis. The Guyer Institute allowed the investigators to sort through the Mannings’ records; it is unclear what they found.
It’s not disputed that Manning was a patient of the Guyer Institute. He told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that his treatment at Guyer was “holistic,” involving “nutrient therapy and oxygen therapy” and the like.
Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, and Derek Wolfe terrorized the Patriots offensive line all game long, putting Tom Brady on the run and on the ground.
After reviewing the tape, center Bryan Stork stood out. Not for his blocking struggles, but because on nearly every snap Stork was tipping the snap by bobbing his head.
Stork tipping the snap allowed the Broncos rushers to get perfect jumps, another advantage over their out-matched opponents.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors have chosen the "Super Bowl 50 Golden Team" in honor of Super Bowl 50, celebrating the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl, the NFL announced today.
