If the initial destroying of the evidence by the NFL was not telltale sign that what the Pats did was so bad that the NFL had to help cover it up, the way the league has handled the recent cap situation with us, which was collusion plain and simple, and now BountyGate should give us an indication of just how bad the cheating was for the Patriots.
All I do know is that Charlie Weis, Eric Mangini and Romeo Crennel are sad jokes as head coaches, yet were brilliant in New England. And that the NE defense has never been the same since the very week the allegations came forward.
[View Full Quote]Where the Pats were brilliant is that they pushed forward to make the team better when they were having success. I think most teams, had they been cheating and having success, would have kept the same players around and probably think that they were truly superior. Instead, the Pats put more weapons around Brady and created a super team of WR's in Stallworth, Welker and Moss.
Not just tapping into opponents signals, but feeding signals to Brady after the stipulated 'black-out' period. Their home game record 'speaks' volumes to their shenanigans.
