That must be what it says because that's what Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel called Shula the other day. Shula drew Vrabel's ire after the former Colts and Dolphins coach had the audacity to say what many NFL coaches and players think: That whatever this year's Patriots accomplish -- a perfect season, a Super Bowl, whatever -- it will be accompanied by an asterisk because they stole opponents' signals. Maybe not an actual asterisk, as in "*hey, they cheated,'' but a mental asterisk, an implied asterisk, one that you know belongs there without actually being there. Vrabel, when asked about Shula's opinion, could have shown a modicum of respect and simply said he disagreed with Shula. Instead, he dismissed the former coach's views and called Shula an "old, washed-up coach.'' _______________ Vrabel never called him that. Kravitz is putting it in quotes that Vrabel used those words on Shula.
