    BS is doing a live marathon chat right now. here's his latest response to another Easterbrook question:

    Owen, Boston: What are your thoughts on Gregg Easterbrook's continued assault on the Patriots in his TMQ column? It seems to me that Easterbrook got all hot and bothered about the Spygate controversy and predicted Belichick wouldn't be the coach by the end of the season. Then when it turned out to be not that big of a deal, he looked stupid, so he turned into a conspiracy theorist and bitterly complains about running up the score. Either that or he is actually Ron Borges in disguise.

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (3:40 PM ET ) I am a big believer that everyone is entitled to their opinion and that writers should be coming up with their own material instead of complaining about stuff that other writers wrote. With that said, the Good/Evil column in which Gregg compared Brady's smirk to Dick Cheney rubbed me the wrong way... if you're writing a satirical column (which he claimed was the case the following week), then the readers need to know that you're, um, being satirical.

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (3:42 PM ET ) I've definitely written passages wrong over the years that didn't come out the way I had intended them to come out, but the only time I ever screwed up an entire column was the thing I wrote about New Orleans during Super Bowl week in 2002 - I was trying to be over the top about the city and I just did a bad job. So I would say that he did a bad job with that column, and he admitted as much the next week, although I don't think he was emphatic enough about it.

    SOMEONE ask Simmons about NBC showing Brady's audio calls, versus our huge penalty for sideline video.

    Interesting that he feels that way, almost resigned to the fact that all the Pats will get is this one great season from Moss and he's a goner.

    Bill (Cleveland, OH): Ever considered Belichick intentionally got caught for the spygate thing? I can totally see him being somewhat stumped on what he could do to take his team to the next level, so he decided to give them something to make them feel slighted so they would be extra motivated.

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (5:20 PM ET ) People keep asking me this - I just don't see it, he cares too much about his place in history. It's too improbable.

    Ok I got the question through but the answer wasn't very extensive:

    Will (DC): Bill, isn't it a little unfair that the Pats get raked through the mud over "spygate" but then NBC airs Brady's line calls nonstop throughout the Philly game?

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (5:31 PM ET ) What, you didn't think it was fair that everyone in the country now knows what the "Omaha" audible means?

    Rob, Boston: Pick one to happen... Pats going 19-0 or the Celtics winning it all?

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (6:22 PM ET ) I couldn't. I just couldn't pick that. It's like picking between parents if only one of them could live in the choice. I can't do it.

    Danny (Findlay, OH): Next time you see Rob Neyer are you going to have a Belichick-Mangino akward handshake moment or a Belichick-Mangino akward half man-hug moment?

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (6:31 PM ET ) I'm going to give him the Belichick "Hmmm, you're the guy dating my kinky ex-girlfriend, great to meet you!" handshake/smirk.

    Spencer (SLC, UT): Your thoughts on all the "blueprint" talk surrounding the Pats-Eagles game? Any truth to it, or did the Pats just have a bad day and the Eagles played really well?

    SportsNation Bill Simmons: (6:32 PM ET ) My only thought is this - why was this such a surprise? Blitz Brady, get physical with Moss, abuse the LB's with a quick RB and don't make mistakes. People are reacting like Jonas Salk just created the polio vaccine again.
