Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has seen a lot of things happen in the league during his career and he’s never been one to shy away from giving his opinion on topical subjects.
In a Friday morning interview on DVE Radio, Keisel didn’t mince words when asked to give his opinion on the New England Patriots now that they are accused of deflating footballs in the AFC Championship game.
“They are looking to win at all costs,” Keisel said. “That’s why they’ve been to the Super Bowl six times. There are rules and you’re supposed to follow the rules, but sometimes the rules don’t get followed and it’s a shame.”
Keisel proceeded to take a shot at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in addition to the Patriots.
“It’s a damn shame what’s going on right now in the league,” Keisel said this morning on WDVE Radio. “To me the one place you look is Goodell.”
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have both pleaded ignorance so far when it comes to the deflated footballs. While both have said they intend to cooperate with the league during their investigation, the NFL had yet top talk to Brady as of yesterday afternoon.
According to reports, 11 of the 12 footballs used by the Patriots had less than the required amount of air pressure in them.
