    Problem is here that you choose "cheating" to account for ALL of their success because it is conevveient…..bit it is FAR from true because you are unable to begin to tie them to ANY cheating whatsoever for their past 2 SB wins....and I am guessing that you don't believe they cheated for the 3 SB's they lost either, right? Impossible to have a 2-way discussion who refuses to acknowledge facts which undermine their conspiracy theory....sorry.

    1 opponent for a 5 year span. Again, NE's winning pctg vs rest of the NFL is ~the same as it is vs the AFC East. Foolish for anyone to imply "they win b/c of the division they play in". Fact is, they just win better & more than any other team for the past 20yrs....regardless of the division they play in.

    So, how did the Patriots cheat on their way to #6?

    Using the AFC East as the reason for their success is just ignorant. The FACT is that the Patriots winning pcg against the rest of the NFL is the same as it is against the AFC East over the past 18 years. That's right, they beat up on the rest of the league the same way they beat up on their division....FACT.

    Where does the NFL state that the SB is a platform "for all teams to get a chance to participate in"? The Super Bowl is (and always has been) a platform for the 2 best teams (as determined by the playoff process) to play for the championship. Believe it or not, the Colts & every other NFL team HAS THE EXACT SAME CHANCE TO MAKE THE SB (AS NE DOES) AT THE START OF EVERY SEASON. You should be blaming the other 31 teams for having to watch NE most of the time.

    How many other players facing their first PED suspension received more than 4 games? Why should Edelman receive more than the rules specify? You DO realize that Goodell has fined Kraft more draft picks & more money than any single commissioner has fined a single team in NFL history right? Did you see the disappointment on Goodell's face when he had to present the trophy to RKK?.... Not sure why you think their relationship is so strong after all these fines/penalties, etc??

    Doesn't sound like he is forced to do anything?.... Sounds like he enjoys witnessing the 2 best teams in football battling it out for a championship. If you want to see different teams in the SB, then it sounds like you have a problem with the 31 teams who have been unable to remove the Pats from this stranglehold for the past ~20yrs? It is a common tactic of millennials to say, "we don't like the results, so let's change the rules"

    If you are not a fan of defensive football, you could consider it boring. Personally, I was intrigued to watch "one of the single greatest defensive game plans in NFL history" play out in front of us....in an era of unprecedented offense in the NFL. To think that SINGLE HIGHEST POINT SPREAD IN SB HISTORY was eclipsed by the LOWEST SCORING SB IN HISTORY really tells me the general public still doesn't respect BB's ability to throw complete unpredictability at the finest minds/teams in the NFL.

    Why don't you get on YOUR team's front office/coaches and demand "better" from them? The bigger problem here is that 31 teams have been unable to crack the Pats stranglehold on the league for almost 20yrs now. If this were an MMA match, I get the feeling that many of you are taking the "I'm tapping out" strategy??….

    If I were a fan of any other team than NE right now, I would be disgusted with my team/front office/coach for NOT being able to put some kind of plan together to stop NE. Isn't it THEIR job to create a team that can compete with the best team(s) in the league? Seriously, no one can tell me that the rest of the teams (other than NE) haven't had the intelligence to figure it out & combat it after almost 20years? Everyone likes to diminish TB's accomplishments by saying "he's a system QB"....but why has no other coach implemented a similar "system" for their team to follow? Seems like a no-brainer to me??….

    Former Steelers seeing the light re. the Pats...

    He was one of the biggest "patriots cheat" guys in the NFL and, self-admittedly, went to NE with the idea that he was going to witness their "evil ways". Instead, he had this to say about them after being a part of their team/organization..... “The only thing that’s really opposite is that in New England, it’s more regimented, it’s more disciplined,” said Harrison. “The coaching is better, to be honest with you. The plans they put together are better. And they don’t ask their players to do anything that’s outside of the realm of what they feel their capabilities are. So when you do that, and you switch a lot of players in and out for certain things that you want to get accomplished, you get things done and that’s what they have over there. “I wanted to hate [Tom Brady] so bad, playing against him all those years and him getting the better of us for the most part of them, I wanted to hate him … I feel like [the Steelers system] needs to be more disciplined…” That’s a huge endorsement for New England’s coaching staff, and it further explains why the team has been so successful under Bill Belichick. Especially consider that Harrison was a tough critic too because he entered the situation viewing the Patriots as a rival, as they had been for him his entire career. That makes his remarks carry even more weight. https://larrybrownsports.com/football/james-harrison-patriots-coaching-better-than-steelers/455524 I think this is the video of him talking about it last night.....not sure how one could discredit what he says he witnessed???... https://video.twimg.com/tweet_video/DySR0MFUcAAazWJ.mp4

    Rule changes do not mean the Pats were cheating. The NFL left rules out there with loopholes....and the Patriots used them to their advantage while other team's coaches were not intelligent enough to catch on. Isn't it funny that Harbaugh had such a problem with the TE substitutions in the 2014 divisional game....but the following season he did the EXACT same thing to beat a regular season opponent. How come no one cared? These rule changes only highlight that BB is playing the game at a completely different level than his peers. His peers, also, will take any advantage they can find/get... but the fact none of them dominates a "league based on parity" renders their efforts irrelevant to 99.9% of NFL fans. Let me ask you this.... It was obvious that green lasers were pointed in Brady/Pats players faces during the AFC Title Game IN KC. What would the national outcry had this same thing happened to an opposing QB in Gillette Stadium for an AFCCG?

    I would beg to differ. Supposedly, Spygate was such a big deal because it highlighted "systematic & organizational cheating". If coaches are the only ones who are aware of the other teams formations/play calls, do you really think that all of that info can be communicated to players (on the field) given the few seconds they have between the time a team lines up and the time the ball is snapped? I would also come fact to the idea of why no former, disgruntled coaches have ever seized the opportunity to make millions of dollars by spilling the beans? Did you hear Kurt Warner this week when he was asked about SB36/Pats cheating, etc...? His reply was simple... "All I can say is that on that day, the Patriots outplayed us on the field". London Fletcher said the same thing this week as well......

    I am confused about this statement? How can "cheating" be implemented on the field without the players having any idea? Again, you should listen to James Harrisons discussing HIS experience on a NE team which went to a SB and how he witnessed something much different than he expected when arriving in NE.
