I would give props to the team if they did it without the cheating and without the blatant disregard for the NFL as a whole.

And if you choose to congratulate them, by all means have at it. As for me, I refuse. They're cheaters and there have been rumors of the cheating since 2001.

There is no way I can say good job to a team who has blantantly broken the rules.

Getting over it and pretending that it never happened are two different things. It did happen. They did cheat. That's all I need to know. For me, it has nothing to do with jealousy. It comes down to the fact that they cheated.

Screw'em. I hope the Giants beat the hell out of them. Personally, I would be aiming for Brady's foot/ankle early in the first and take the 15 yards and the fine. Call it cheap, but if you wanna play injured, deal with the repercussion's. Take advantage of your opposition's weakeness and misfortune.

i feel the same way.

i have to admit though if they win this game it changes the entire NFL... we'll see more and more teams following NE's playbook by emptying the backfield and just passing the ball 40 times a game... i think this is only the start to a dying RB position... you can say what you want about maroney... but fact is their having success airing it out.. and if it ain't broke don't fix it..

If in fact you are referring to steroid use...first, it wasn't illegal back then. Secondly, I highly doubt that Steeler players were the only ones in the league using them. As far as NE goes....They got caught cheating in Week 1. I highly doubt that they've done so since. Being caught already. So am I to believe that they needed to cheat in the first place. NO!! This team is for real as much as I hate Belichick. I had alot of respect for him until the spygate story broke. So now anything that the Patriots has done prior to Week 1 of the 2007 NFL season is in question to me. Not to mention Belichick doesn't seem to have a high level of integrity when very recently in the past he said "you'll never see a Randy Moss on this team". LMAO!!!!

I do hope you`re wrong Rhee Rhee,that would be terrible!
Don`t know much about American Football but I do know I love watching RB`s in action,especially Willie...that guy is poetry in motion.

Honestly, I don't see this as "Jealousy"! It's just a simple fact that it's human nature to NOT admire/cheer/respect someone or something that has been caught cheating! Simple as that!

For the record, I use to admire the Pats*. Hell, they've practically owned the steelers but I still saw them as a powerhouse and a worthy representative of the AFC. BUT, not anymore.......I just can't look at them the same, this possible 19-0 would have been HUGE had they not cheated. Now it's got a giant "YEAH BUT*?"

Why did it take them getting caught cheating to play so good? There's an interesting question.....
