Houston Texans owner Bob McNair appeared on SportsRadio610 in Houston, talking to Mike Meltser and Seth Payne, weighed in on deflategate, while everyone awaits Judge Berman’s decision on Tom Brady’s suspension.

Mike Meltser tweeted out the main quotes from McNair on deflategate and WEEI.com wrote about them and now so are we.

McNair was asked if the whole situation is a bad look for the NFL and he replied that it is.

“I think [The NFL] could have handled it better, the Patriots could have handled it better, Brady could have handled it better,” McNair said.

McNair said the whole thing escalated because Tom Brady and the Patriots were not cooperative during the investigation.

“What escalated the whole thing is that Brady and the Patriots were going to cooperate fully, and then when it came down to it, they didn’t,” Bob McNair stated.

He also said if it was JJ Watt in this situation, he wouldn’t have destroyed his cell phone.

“If it was JJ Watt I think he would have been cooperative, and it wouldn’t be a questionI don’t think JJ would destroy his cell phone,” McNair said.

He did admit there isn’t anything solid that proves Brady had anything to do with deflating footballs.

“Is there anything conclusive there? No, you don’t have any conclusive evidence, but the whole idea is we want to make sure we have a competitive playing field that’s level for everybodyWe don’t want people breaking the rules.”

Even though the Texans owner admitted there was no hard evidence against Brady, he still spoke as if he knows 100% for a fact they indeed deflated footballs on purpose.

“In the minds of somebody in that organization, they thought it was important. They thought it would give them a competitive advantage and that’s why they did it. You just want to eliminate that kind of situation if you can,” McNair said.

Way to be a company man Bob McNair.
