How will the properly inflated ball affect Brady's game?


Much has be said about Patriots QB Tom Brady and his alleged use of an under-inflated ball. While there are plenty of arguments about his ethics and the Patriot's past history of cheating, perhaps it would useful to understand if an under-inflated ball matters.

Assuming the allegation of a under-inflated ball is proven, did Tom Brady have an advantage? If so how much and how so? In not, why not? These are useful questions to ask, as much of the controversy hinges on getting an unfair advantage.

While responding to the poll below do state which team you support and do please speculate whether you think a normally inflated ball will be a problem for Tom Brady when New England plays Pittsburgh in what is going to be an electric opening game for the season. What will be the result?
