If the Patriots win this Sunday they can say to the world that they are one of the best teams in the league. If they lose, people will say "see?! They can't win without cheating" No one will take into account that SD is one of the top three teams in the NFL, all they will see is "video taping against the Jets = win. Not video taping against the Chargers = loss" It will be that simple to the media and the rest of the country. The best thing the Patriots can do is go out there this Sunday and beat the Chargers (even better if its in convincing fashion). I think that might be one of the only ways that this whole thing dies down sooner rather than later.
