Every team in the NFL cheats in one way or another. The Colts pump music in to the RCA Dome, the Steelers allow their field to become a dirt field late in the season, etc.

Some forms of cheating are more egregious than others.

soooooooo........you're saying that stealing other teams signals and giving them to your players on the field, but the other team isn't doing the same thing so both have the same advantage is comparable to both teams playing up the their ears in muck on the same field.

I get it..........not.

I guess living in the DC area has made me an untrusting soul but I find it hard to believe that the Patriots are the only team in the league who break the rules.

we just have to trust tomlin in his choice to keep his staff together we will see in a few months whether it was a good choice or not.

he is right tho about keeping them together.. evry coach has a plan, and if u bring in new coaches evry yr or w/e then the bond between the coaches will never come true and then they wouldn't really have the trust they do will the others..

As this was MT's first season with this staff, I guess he wants them to take the off-season and re-assess their areas and work on improvements. I am willing to see how it works out.

I like Tomlin but he better watch what he says to the press. If this "game altering" play continues (referring to OL and ST breakdowns), this city will eat him alive. He better bring in an infusion of talent in 08' (i.e., ST, OL, DL, etc.) or we'll continue to question his decisions to retain the coaching staff. As far as I'm concerned, these coaches have not shown us a great deal. A great coach will often inspire a young man to perform above the level that he is intended. Meaning, this team lacks the desire or even passion to be a complete team Next year, we need to bring in some hungry ball players + the coaching staff needs to teach and inspire to raise the level of play.
