What's wrong New England...don't have enough confidence in beating the Jets without resorting to spying? I see how things are done in Foxboro....

This isn't the first time, the same guy was caught last year at Lambeau doing the same thing.

Remember this is the team that used a convict on a snowplow to win a playoff game.



Where are all of my respected members going?

Maybe the Jets should use a more complicated signal system. If it can be cracked over the course of one game, it might not be the most fool proof of systems.

Video taping public actions happening between team and management in full view of thousands of spectators - calling it spying is certainly an over reaction.

I would call it valid tactics, and the rules against it are, quite frankly, ludicrous.

Who needs to steal the Jet's signals?

Here is their offense.

1st down - try to bust it up the middle. 2 yards

2nd & 8 - see first down.

3rd & 6 Pennington dump pass in the flat.

Bring on the punting unit please.

If the Jet's refuse to get of that weak armed quarterback they will never be better than a second rate team.

LOL very good point.

The "Snowplow Caper" was the last game of the strike-shortened 1982 season and it enabled the Patriots to beat the Dolphins 3-0 and get into that year's special Super Bowl Tournament. The next week, the Dolphins defeated the Patriots in the first round of the playoffs--in Miami.

What goes around comes around!

NFL Rules prohibit videotaping from the sidelines or from the coaches booths the signals of other teams for the purpose of learning the signals. They should lose the proposed draft picks and be banned from the playoffs regardless their record at the end of the season. If they got caught twice, you can be damn sure it isn't the 3rd or 4th times it's happened.

Let's do this for all the teams that have had a player found to be using steriods or HGH too. There, you got the Pats twice!

I can't condone any form of cheating, but do you suppose other teams may have done this?
Oh, BTW:

Where did I do that?

All I was getting at is that this sort of thing happens all the time in baseball, and no doubt in every sport where it is possible. As you said in the Ellis Hobbs thread:

Quoting Boeing7E7 (Reply 22):
A cheat is a cheat.

So whether other teams have been caught (and I don't know if they have) stealing signs, if they have, they are cheats. If a team has a player suspended for substance violations, they are, by association, on a team that is cheating. If a cheat is a cheat, then every team should be banned from the playoffs. I was NOT trying to justify cheating, I was simply notying that if every team that cheats were banned from the playoffs for cheating, well, you get the rest.

Next time, try to get me to clarify before you jump to an inflammatory conclusion that is inaccurate. That's all I ask.

Which they might... they have like 8 picks in the first four rounds anyway...

There is no offense a team could commit that would result in that penalty. None.

And that sounds like the rant of a fan whose team the Patriots destroy on a pretty consistent basis...

This is all part of the game and once in a while someone will get caught. I do think the NFL has is priorities screwed up when they go after someone 'stealing signs' cheating, but they won't go after far more important issues like head injuries to players, players using illegal drugs, players getting into off-the-field criminal beheavors, and so on.

I wouldn't put it past the coach...can't speak for the rest of the team. BTW, speaking of Bill Bellicik ,did you notice the classless move at the end of the Super Bowl last year when Manning went up to him and he just brushed Manning off? He barely made eye contact with him. It was painfully obvious right there on TV. That's when my respect for that guy went down the tubes big time.

It's cool. Belichick is very much a coach's guy. He may be an ass, I don't recognize that, because he wins games for us. Enjoy your victory. There's plenty to hate in the NFL. IMO, Belichick is not one of them.
