Default Anyone think the Patriots are cheating again?

The last time we saw the Patriots play the level that are at right now, they were cheating. So they are known cheaters. Call me crazy but I'm thinking if a coach was willing to put as much time and effort into cheating like Bellicheat did in the past...wouldn't you think he'd be willing to do it again? NE did manage to win a few SB's by cheating, so it was working great for them until they got caught. A criminal does not stop committing crimes because he gets caught.....typically a criminal just tries not to get caught the next time.


maybe it's coincidence that the Patriots are blowing out every team they play? It sure looks like they know what plays to call at ever snap. Some how Brady always seems to know what WR is going to be uncovered. The WRs always seem to know when the defense will be man on man or zone....and amazingly Brady finds that guy immediately. So you almost never see a team blitz or get pressure on Brady.....he always seems to know a blitz is coming and always seems to be able to dump the ball off quickly or exploit the blitz.

Some how this YOUNG defense of theirs has suddenly turned into the best defense in the league. But of course you always see the worst defense in the league suddenly turn dominant mid season. That happens all the time right?

NE's success right now stinks of cheating. How is it that they are the only team in the league that seems to be dominant? The one team who is head and shoulders above the rest, just happens to be the same team caught for cheating just a few years ago.

I certainly hope Tomlin and co have some plans in the future to deal with what ever the Cheatriots are currently doing. Computer hacking and wire tapping are pretty easy things to pull off. Small time criminals and private investigators do this every day. So why wouldn't Bill Bellicheat?

It's funny you mentioned the defense because I look at the struggles other teams are having with a young D (Baltimore's secondary). It's short of amazing to go from the bottom 5 to shutting teams out.

great discussion

I hope not but it's just weird how they go from having their D as a liability to practically shutting teams out and their offense wasn't exactly setting the world on fire eitehr. It wasn't bad but it wasn't what it is now. Really hope we can play them in the playoffs and get some revenge.

That got caught for cheating on epic levels. But now they play by the rules?


I have a very hard time believing they are not still trying to cheat....if not all out cheating. They won 3 SB's and made an unbelievable amount of $ off cheating. The punishment they got was nothing for how much the gained. It was the equivalent to a slap on the wrist.

You act like coaches that were once part of the Patriots staff have been caught cheating after this scandal.

Default Re: Anyone think the Patriots are cheating again?

I never really cared for the whole cheating arguement because every team does it but the Patriots do it better, so they cheat. If anyone has ever known someone who played in the NFL or even college, they know coaches take notes on hand signals, but because its just notes, its not always great. Plus official game film sometimes catches coaches doing hand signals and players obviously do hand signals during the game all the time.

Arians just recently changed up the hand signals Ben does. LeBeau said he changes the hand signals every week.

And if anyone knows anything, defenses use hand signals 90 times more than the offense, so cheating really only helps offenses pick apart defenses, not the other way around. The Patriots defense is just well coached, but Tom and co may be using someting to help.
