    Whatever it is that Bill Belichick and his lifelong sidekick, Ernie Adams, do with all that mysterious sideline footage is anybody's guess. Which I think may be the point. The Patriots want you to think they know everything about you, including stuff they aren't supposed to, even when maybe they don't.


    Let's assume that sending up the league and the league office that way
    had some point to it.
    Is that a fair assumption?
    That Belichick had a purpose in mind when he decided to flout that rule?

    But be sure you let everybody know what you are doing!
    Do it right out in the open where it cannot be missed.
    And have it done by someone well known by the Jets to be a Pats employee.

    Think of the effect it had the next week on poor Norv Turner.
    Became security-conscious to the point of demented distraction.
    How much better can you get into someone's mind than that?

    Could JUST THAT ... getting into opponents' minds
    ... be the main rationale for that
    otherwise-inexplicable silliness ?

    in the process creating a bad rep on team and organization and himself? i think we are giving BB too much credit -it was a mistake and thats abt it. he didnt need to get into people's mind last 3 SB wins and he didnt need to now.

    I think you're are being overly sensitive..he dropped a reference to spygate but suggested it was a means to an end, and that it ultimately only further adds onto the Belichick legend, and everything he does outside the lines to prepare and get into other teams' heads. The reality is that in the aftermath of "spygate", any non-NE columnist writing about Belichick will mention it in one form another..at least until this season is over. So if you're going to get these sorta comments, better to have them followed by complimentary adulation.

    I have to agree with you on this,that is the same vibe I got when I read that part, more praising Belichick then calling him a cheater.

    An unintended ... even unforeseeable ... consequence.

    What rational person could have imagined
    Jets Commissioner God-ell going so ballistic
    over such a trifle?
    Loose chinstrap, anyone?
