    From Tomase's article"
    The Patriots [team stats] usually need to contrive bulletin board material.
    Not this week.
    The Jacksonville Jaguars [team stats] are making it easy on them, thanks to Camera-gate.

    On the Jaguars’ official Web site, the Patriots rate No. 1 in the power rankings, but their 16-0 season includes an asterisk which reads, “cheated in one game.”
    And turning back the clock to that September scandal, few players in the league were more outspoken than Jaguars defensive lineman Paul Spicer.

    “They’re the ones that have to pay the consequences for it,” he said in September. “If that’s the way they feel like they have to get the upper hand, then so be it. Everybody’s been running around calling them geniuses for years. What are they going to say now?”

    I'm not seeing it either.

    Though a colleague did bring in a NYC paper last week that had that stupid asterisk.

    He made those comments after week one. Lets see if he says anything this week. I hope he (or someone else) does.

    I have a feeling that BB and co will find a way to have the players see these ignorant uneducated comments everyday.
    Practice, after game preparation, perhaps before and after weight lifting.
    This is just what BB and co thrive on and he will definitely make them remember.

    After reading the Herald, it reminded me of

    - Delrio's stupid comments of spearing, and the communication issuie...

    - The Spicer comments


    And now im more than ever convinced we will be up 24-0 by halftime.. Not concerned at all at this game, only the weather could stop us now...:rocker:

    I didn't think this would go national...wrong. They were just talking about it on Mike and Mike. Commenting on how this will be hung up everywhere and how this team feeds on it.

    Pretty poor choice by the Jags if they did that, and especially if they let it stand for more than 24 hours. Very, very poor choice.

    Obviously you have no idea about what motivates the Pats. They resent people impugning their reputation and take its personally.

    It's pretty pathetic that you ASSume we think they need to be disrespected to have any motivation. This team will kick any teams ass no matter what. They just enjoy it more when someone makes it personal for them.
    You need to pull your head out of your ass.

    The JAGS website is an official arm of the team.
    I wonder whta the Krafts would think about this asterisk on the official NFL nwebsite.
    He should talk to Goodell and Weaver about this crap.


    It is one thing for a rag like the NY post to have it, but the JAGS official website?


    I do not remember the official NFL decision referring to cheating?

    Oy, nobody gets this team. They don't NEED bulletin board material, but when they get it, they use it. They go out of their way to humiliate the moron who said it.

    I'll never understand why players can't shut their mouths. The Colts have learned this (except the Saint), they never say anything about anyone and go out of their way to praise people. It cracks me up when people say the Pats are a classless bunch, find me a quote where they said anything about anyone prior to a game.

    The list of names is getting longer of idiots who said something stupid and fades off into obscurity. The support group is getting bigger.

    This could be like the Miami game where the Pats go up big in the first half and just **** around for the remaining 30 minutes. :D

    Pathetic? Why would you say that if it works? If it works, it's far from pathetic, IT'S GREAT! BTW... it has a significant effect. Did you not watch the Pats/Steelers game?

    The beauty is, it doesn't matter if anyone gets it right because it's already said. Spicer's comments were from September. And Del Idiot's worse "spearing" comments were from last year. They're said, they're in the history books. No one needs to get it wrong now, they already have :rocker:

    It isn't pathetic. It just shows the team has a passion for what they do!

    And they end up throwing the comments back, as W goes up on the score board!!!!

    You still don't get it. You keep saying they need it to win, and it is just one small part of the entire winning philosophy. They play well without it (or without perhaps any one of there methods). But,synergistically, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and when taken AS A WHOLE, all the things the Pats do, including playing the disrespect card, has earned them the only 16-0 season in history.

    As far as bulletin board material goes, certainly stuff like that fires the team up. Smart teams do not insult other teams. Look at the Colts. When was the last time Manning or any Colt went public with insults to a team they had to play? Just because another team may not NEED to be disrespected doesn't mean it will not fire them up.

    Think of it as walking in a bad area of the city at night. A gang of punks, armed with knives and guns, crosses your path. If they want to take you they will. What do you do? Wait until they are close to you and then call them a bunch of candyasses? Tell them they are all morons and misfits?

    That is the analogy. They gang doesn't need you to make fun of them to take you apart. At the same time it is stupid of you to prod them and insult them.

    As far as it being pathetic, that is a judgement call. Some people would embrace a principle (us agaisnt the world) that has resulted in three world championships and the only 16-0 season in the history of the NFL. You seem to prefer to lose rather than find a method of maintaining focus. And that is fine with us.

    Well, it is pretty hard to keep up the motivation and focus game after game. everyone has a let down now and then. The constant barrage of insults facing the Pats helps them keep focused.

    It is quite apparent to anyone who listened to WMG yell, "Cancel those reservations!" and Rodney say, "They called us a patch-wrok defense" that the Patriots do indeed feel strongly. I find it humorous that people still deny the effect of this.

    You excel in misreading things, which makes me question your education. No one here said it's necessary for them to have "any sort of motivation." What is undeniable is that it helps them have some extra motivation. That much is clear. Anyone who has played competitive sports knows that extra adrenaline and anger help you get up for a game.
