Pats pushed the envelope really, wow i am sure this is news, BB leaves no stone unturned, is not news it is a fact.
But then every team pushes the envelope as much as they can, Hell this is the NFL and 100s of millions of dollars are at stake. What do you want a coach who leaves things undone and loses because of it.
But there is a difference between pushing the envelope and cheating, pushing the envelope is walking all the way to that line but never crossing it. Cheating is consciously deciding to break the rules to gain an advantage over ones opponent.
Tell me Fisher telling his players to take out a guy in the game, is that cheating or the GB putting a bounty on players in the game is that cheating, or Denver secretly paying Elway Hundreds of thousands of dollars off the books and above the cap in their last SB yr was that cheating?
These are but a few of many instances in the NFL were people other then the Pats pushed the envelope to win. To my mind these examples are all more egregious then anything the Pats have done.
