    With all the players from the Rams/Panthers/Eagles/Steelers that have come out acting like sour grapes on these "cheating" allegations, alot of fans have to be thankful for EXPOSING these teams for what they are...

    Rams-NOONE could stop Mike Martz's juggurnaut O-but what did the Pats do? They played nickel 90% of the time, rarely blitzing-while jamming the heck out of those woos receivers. Since then, Martz has shown to be nothing more than a 1 trick pony, and Kurt Warner went from being the King of the World Future HOFer to nothing more than a serviceable backup.

    Panthers-they EXPOSED their porous secondary in that SB-the Cats were able to cover it up with a stout front 4(which is why they rarely blitz), but since then, their opponents have found many ways to elude their front 4 and gnash their poor sec.

    Eagles-Jim Johnson's schemes were always a headache for opponents b/c of his exotic blitzes, but in that Super Bowl, they showed how his D OVER-PURSUED alot. Since then, alot of teams, including our Bledsoe lead O in '05, had alot of success running plays like screens against them. And not to mention too McNabb was Finally Exposed in that game(i.e. just keep him in the pocket and not let him roll out)-he hasn't enjoyed the success since.

    Steelers-Quite simply, Big Ben hasn't exactly looked like an HOFer since that '04 AFC Title game-they exposed his inabilities to read D's at times.

    Outside of Indy (credit to them) is it a wonder that most every team we play has gone on to perform at a subpar level compared to before they played us? Our gameplans usually show how best to expose the oposing team's offensive and/or defensive units. That is why BB will be inducted into the HoF once he retires.

    he might get into the hall of fame, aslong as the whole cheating thing doesn't affect the voting.. i think if he wins another he will.

    Just wanted to add that BB is the master at developing a the winning formula/blueprint for beating teams. And the copycats/admirers of the league tend to emulate this.

    It was the Bears in the NFC Title game-pretty much, their O-line got exposed.

    So pretty much, if you can rush 4 successfully against that underwhelming line, and just drop back 7 in coverage. Not only you get pressure on Brees, but NOONE will be open.

    You forgot:

    BB exposed the K-Gun Bills Offense in the '91 SB. He's broken down the WC Offense of the '80s Niners and controlled (save for an undermanned half) the Colts juggernaut. My guess is, he could find a way to stop the Spread Offense of the Patriots if he had to.

    CHFF was going to do an article called "The Teams I have ruined, by Bill Belichick". Maybe it was a joke at the time, but it is something that could be seriously explored.

    Man, that game must have hurt. A real punch to the stomach.
    I thought the Cowboys were going to bench you for good.:D
    But to their credit, they stuck with the guy and it has paid off well so far.

    The Pats have also laid waste to the AFC east.Just look at the records.
    Not just on the field but in team building through the draft and FAs.
