If you thought Deflategate was finally over and done with, well think again because we may well have a new air pressure related debate on our hands.

Yes, barely months after the two-year-long investigation and process found that Tom Brady was indeed in the wrong and was suspended four games by the NFL, we could be set for Deflategate 2.

That is after some eagle-eyed fans spotted something fishy during the Seahawks-Bills game on Monday Night Football: an incredibly under-inflated ball.

Some photographs from the game show Seattle punter Jon Ryan as he's on the field ready to boom one down the field. Take a look at the ball and you can see just how far Ryan's fingers are sunk into it.

Those pictures are taken from the broadcast and look fairly fuzzy but they do appear to show a football that is not as inflated as it should be.

There was a tweet sent out with those pictures in them and one of them shows a still from a previous game where Ryan's foot basically goes through the ball as he's kicking it. Now, punters have leg strength, but nothing like this.

In a little bit of coincidence3, the refereeing crew on Monday was Walt Anderson's, who were also in charge of the AFC Championship game between the Colts and Patriots that started the deflategate saga.
