    Curran: Impact of Brady's suspension already being felt on field

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It’s an inconvenient and uncomfortable truth that can’t just be blissfully ignored. The pound of flesh Roger Goodell extracted from the Patriots in the form of Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension is starting to hurt. Friday night, we watched the less-than-ideal quarterback rotation between Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo unfold.  Garoppolo completed a 17-yard dart to Aaron Dobson on his first throw of the night.

    Mingo, Branch among the Patriots sitting out of preseason game No. 3

    The problem isn’t that the people running the NFL are stupid. They think everyone else is stupid. That’s the problem.   Latest evidence submitted to the already existing mountain of proof that the NFL thinks we’re all a bunch of drooling dolts? Deciding to give Giants kicker Josh Brown a one-game suspension for violating the domestic-violence policy instead of the mandated six.  Did they not think people would find out Brown’s suspension stemmed from allegedly putting hands on his ex-wife? And that questions would naturally arise as to why Brown’s suspension was 85 percent shorter than what the NFL JUST mandated? And that, given the NFL’s brutally inept investigations and jaundiced rulings in
