    You bet your ass. What punishment did the Jets get for filming the Pats signals the year before Spygate happened?

    Despite popular belief there is in fact no law that states that a Patriots playoff run must be accompied by cheating allegations for current or prior playoff success.

    let's stop the madness, end threat

    If you all think Steelers fans are bad (and they are) wait til you get a load of Packers fans if it's a NE-GB Super Bowl

    Only thing I remember from '96 was eating the blue Elmer's Glue in the back of class.

    Man, can't believe it's been 20 years since I've been a senior in high school

    You don't need the qualifier "as long as we did it from the stands". It was perfectly legal to tape from the sideline in 2004, as long as you didn't use the tape during the game.

    This is such garbage. That play came on first down after the Pats had turned over the Steelers on downs (when Bettis decided not to follow his blockers on 4th and 1 and got stuffed). The defense had just come on the field - there was no need to be signalling in a play, they got it directly from their coaches as they took the field.

    Add to that the fact that it's almost cliche to try for a deep strike right after a turnover, which is exactly what the Pats did, and what the Steelers should have been expecting. Stolen signals my arse.

    I like it! It just shows that we are in their heads. Come the game on Sunday all it will take is for us to get up early on them and we will then really be in their heads.

    I don't have a problem with all this, as this is what all winning teams (dynasty) have to endure.

    It is when the cheating comments stop is when we will know we are in trouble.

    What this? They blame the Pats for their own ineptitude in safeguarding their own hand signals..I suppose then, that they can blame the Pats for their own inept performance against us.

    Maybe you should have contacted Andy Reid and offered assistance in using timeouts and running the offense with more urgency.

    :rolleyes:

    Bettis is to the NFL* HOF as Don Sutton is to the MLB HOF.

    We outsmarteed them, we out hustled them, and we out muscled them.
    Add in a splash of cat-like quickness and they are going down to defeat again.

    They don't have to ever since Goodell became Omissioner and gave them ready made excuses.

    Point taken, but the memo hadn't been sent out yet.

    Plus in the instances when NY teams HAVE been caught in violations, they only received wrist slaps. The Giants having their 4th round pick devalued a maximum of 12 spots, is as harsh as it got.
