And while I dislike Brady, I respect him and recognize him as the best in the game. Same with Belichick. Will never come close to saying that of Flaccid or Harbaugh.
And while it's fun to rag on them for Spygate, I really think it's overblown. It may have helped them a little bit but it was hardly the reason for their success.
Isn't that just it though? Every little advantage counts. Sure they were very good. They've likely had better, more dominant teams recently that didn't win it all. It's easy to get tripped up by a play or 2. But at some point during their 3 SB runs, does that little advantage give them a play to win a close game to keep the run going.
