    Not only is this week's column laughable, it is also poorly researched...

    It gets better...

    When will he understand that this occurred in the first game of the season, and could have had nothing to do with the Patriots performance this season? And by asking if they are cheating now, he challenges us to prove they are not. So, wouldn't it also be necessary to prove that neither have the remaining 31 teams in the league also cheated?

    This is simply false. It's been well documented that the Pats were missing two starting offensive line men, which may have been crucial consdiering how Maroney has run in the playoffs with a fully staffed OL. You think just a modicum of research would have revealed that to TMQ?

    Gee, what was that thing at the end of the 2001 season? Isn't it a bid absurd to rate SB XXXVI as any less memorable than SB XXVI? 1991 certainly isn't that recent. Oh, that's right, the Pats must have cheated, so the game can't be considered a memorable upset (although if you ask me, if they really did cheat, that in itself would be very memorable!).

    TMQ just gets nerdier and nerdier. :rolleyes:

    I respect your effort to debunk this clown, but why bother to read him? He's a one trick pony struggling to be relevant. It's about survival in the marketplace, and he's hitched his wagon to the Pats' gravy train. Ignore him and he'll die.

    Two starting offensive lineman and a TE who may as well be a starting offensive lineman, as well as two of the team's better special teamers (Eckel and Andrews). And they couldn't run well and the special teams coverage gave up a TD...

    Easterbrook just sucks.

    Thank you for saving me the time to read that article. :bricks:

    Wouldn't a better answer be "Ever!"? :D

    TMQ is a worthless hack who does little to no research before spewing out his anti-Pats rants. His opinion means nothing to anyone except a few haters. Listening to them cry together after the SB is actually going to be fun.

    Thanks for including the tidbits. There's no way I'm linking to that hump. Used to read him every week, but I haven't read him since Week 1 and I never will again.

    Isn't it true that videotaping coaches wasn't against NFL rules until 2005? What an a**wipe. :mad:

    When Watson's IQ saw the new TMQ posted on Page 2 and noticed the videocamera and the shot of Mangini on the right side of the bannerhead, he wrote "not reading" in his notebook.

    He'll never let the tapes go. When the controversy died down he insisted more was to come. When he was smacked down by the ESPN omduds(wo)man he defended himself saying that more would come out and that he would be vindicated. Even now that more has not come out, he can insist that there is more out there and IF ONLY we knew then he'd be vindicated.

    He's playing to Pats haters and trying to cover his own butt. Thankfully I haven't read him since his Week 2 column.

    This is simply Easterbrook doing whatever he has to to get page views. Generally, when 'real' columnists decide to settle in the realm of sportswriting, it's for a reason. Either they're tired of real journalism or they suck at real journalism. In Easterbrook's case, it was the latter.

    Just don't click it. The man lives for his "hits". It's not a coincidence he picked this week to pull out all the stops.

    who says older dynastys did not use video-tape to an advantage?

    Did they? We will never know. Did NE, we will never know....

    we only know what we know, old dynastys were great, THEY may have cheated, but we don't know.

    The Patriots may have too, we don't know.

    What we do know is they have three SB titles.

    Eveything else dosen't really matter.

    And with that I am never gonna comment on this piece of crap story again...

    Who really cares what this racist, peverted conspiracy theorist and failed political pundant really thinks? There is a reason TMQ is on ESPN Page 2. It means he isn't good enough or popular enough to actually have people want to read his articles. ESPN throws all their loons and morons in that section.

    Sure we are a small handful as Pats fans, but I have to wonder, how far down his hits have fallen, that he has to drag out this old chestnut even though he has taken a spanking by the ombudsmen.

    Remember don't click that dick.

    Why do you guys give him the benefit of clicking his column. Just stop reading him. His stuff is garbage.

    While we're proving that video cameras didn't help the Pats, it's up to Easterbrook to prove that:

    The 1970s Steelers didn't oftentimes sacrifice small woodland animals to their pagan gods in a plea for increased strength on every Sunday (or use steroids instead).
    The 1980s 49ers' chief teambuilding activity wasn't killing hobos to get an erection.
    The 1990s Cowboys did not kidnap members of the opposing teams' families before games and use them as blackmail for poorly timed turnovers.

    We can play "Prove me wrong!" too.
