As the vast majority of you know, Broncos nemesis Tom Brady has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015-2016 season over the scandal ridiculously dubbed Deflategate.
Brady is accused of probably knowing that footballs used in a playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts had less air in them than the NFL mandates and definitely being a pain in the ass when it came to cooperating with those tasked with investigating this charge.
Most observers believe that the four-game suspension will be lowered — perhaps halved — after his appeal is heard. But even if it's not, the Broncos won't benefit.
After all, Denver doesn't play Brady's New England Patriots until November 29, well after Tom Terrific (hate that nickname) is expected to be back in action.
Worse yet, he's likely to be extremely pissed off when he comes to town.
