Ex-NFL Players on ESPN--Mark Brunell, Jerome Bettis, Brian Dawkins--all think Tom Brady is lying about Deflate-Gate:
BRUNELL: I did not believe what Tom had to say. Those balls were deflated. Somebody had to do it, and I don’t believe there’s an equipment manager in the NFL who on his own initiative would deflate a ball without his starting quarterback’s approval. I just didn’t believe what Tom Brady had to say. ... That football is our livelihood. If you don’t feel good about throwing that ball, your success on the football field can suffer from that.
