Thus the new rule change that was enacted, bearing his name no less, which will prohibit anyone from even breathing on him without drawing a 15-yarder. Not to mention the other rule change which will allow WRs like Welker to run over the middle without having to fear being made to pay for it, as Clark did last November.

Level playing field my ass. Every one of those rule changes that pussifies the game even more benefits them and penalizes physical defensive teams.

Belichick: 41-55 prior to taping/stealing signals.

And that's a fact, Jack...

Belichick 27-5 after spygate, best in league.

Hey, you had a couple automatic first downs in that super bowl. Roughing the holder, was it?

That says a lot, doesn't it? A coach that was 41-55 before he started cheating manages to go 27-5 AFTER he was "caught" by a sympathetic and friendly NFL commissioner.

Something is rotten in Foxboro...

Someone is bitter in Akron.

Someone won't yield to reason.

Someone's mind is performing spectacular mental gymnastics to belittle a formidable opponent's accomplishments, rather than just acknowledge them.

5. Whichever flavor-of-the-month team came back from 5-11 to make the playoffs last year, only to fall flat this season

Shanahan my ass. He hasn't done shit since golden boy Elway retired. Extremely overrrated.

"Mental gymnastics"?

I look at the facts. I see a shitty coach start cheating and have success. I see a mediocre team with a back-up college QB winning multiple super bowls. this is Occam's Razor, the simplest solution is correct: The Patriots had an unfair advantage that propelled them to undeserved success.

Let's break this down a little more. I think their competitive advantage pretty much ended last year. Whatever signals they stole, playbooks they pilfered, radio frequencies they monitored wore out in 2008. You look at their team, and what do you see? Another average QB succeeding in a super QB friendly system. Look at the schedule. Every quality team but one they played, they lost to, with the exception of the Cardinals (but that was a wake up call for Arizona as well). Sure they won 11 games, but look who they beat. KC, Jets, 49ers, Broncs, Rams, Bills (Twice) Dolphins (Phins were decent last year and they split with the Pats), Seahawks, Raiders, and Cards. Most of those teams were below .500.

The teams they couldn't beat? Colts, Chargers, Steelers, Dolphins and Bills...4 of those were playoff teams. So it pretty much bears out what I'm saying...they beat the shit bottom feeders, and lost to playoff quality teams. They don't have the luxury of playing the easiest schedule in the league this year.

Sorry, Charlie, but there is no way I'm going to acknowledge dishonesty, cheating and mediocrity.
