OK I'll be more direct then. 

 

If a rival team to the Patriots was accused of cheating, but continued to win games (and actually won games at an even higher rate after said accusations), I would not be inclined to continue to cry "cheaters" at every opportunity. 

 

I'm not a coach, I'm not an NFL player, I haven't played the game since high school and I've only coached my son's Pop Warner team. I'm not claiming to know or understand the game better than anyone else in particular. But I do not believe that it would be possible to "cheat your way" to nine Super Bowl appearances in 18 years. If that's even feasible, then the game is seriously flawed and I don't know why any of us would waste our time watching it. Might as well watch pro wrestling if that's the case. 

 

I understand that many will feel differently and I fully accept it. I'm not looking for validation from anyone. Just trying to find out if cooler heads are prevailing or if most people are still somewhat irrational when the topic comes up. 

 

This is a good board -- I like the fact that people are required to be respectful of one another and that the rules are a little tighter than other boards. The keyboard is the weapon of the passive-aggressive individual. That's somewhat marginalized here with how things are set up. That's why I've always come back sooner or later.

Going to attempt to address this one paragraph at a time.

 

1.  Not only accused, but proven a few times.  Correct?   Thus the hefty fines, loss of draft picks, and suspensions.  Correct?

 

2.  Of course it's possible.  Anything is possible.  And to the 2nd part of that paragraph, many do think it's seriously flawed, thus the reason of lost interest in the game.

 

3.  Yes, this is a good board.  This is a GREAT board. Not having ever visited rival boards I can't say how visitors are treated but have heard some other teams message boards are less than friendly to visitors or fans of opposing teams (to put it nicely). :dunno:

Cooler heads are prevailing?

Why? Because they don't think like you do? They don't share your point of view?

 It is simple. A lot of Colt fans dislike the Patriots and their fans. No more, no less.

Now if you want to talk about football that is cool. But talking about how great the Patriots are and include it in every thread you visit, that is something else.

I can't even imagine visiting a Pats board and trying to convince members how great Peyton was.  Can you imagine? haha

 

:edit:. And I mean no disrespect to @GoPats.  He and I have had a great friendship on here, and chatted about many things.  I think even he would agree that Trying to convince members on the Planet how great Peyton was would go over like a lead fart.

For one thing if you don't have the right zip code a couple of Patriot forums will not even let you in their forum.

1. I'm not going to get into it because it's a dead horse. Suffice to say, everything with the Patriots is ridiculously overblown because of the collective dislike toward them. 

 

2. No way. I completely disagree with you here and I respect you but I think your emotions are clouding your judgment. 

 

3. It used to be better.

Yeaaahhhhh... ok. I think it's time to give us all a break then. 

 

Enjoy the Super Bowl if you end up watching it.

All of you know my stance on the Patriots. They’ve put together the best dynasty in NFL history. Simple as that

 

I, for one, have no clue who you are, or what your stance is on the the Patriots.

All I can say is Goodell destroyed the tapes early on because he was a fledgling commissioner, during Spygate (veteran D, no need to tape offensive signals but a QB in years 1-4 playing like a vet, maybe, just maybe, defensive signals were taped and used to win so many close playoff games during the first 3 SB span, but we will never know the depth, thanks to Goodell). Then Brady destroyed his phone during Deflategate (don't give me the privacy argument, blah, blah, blah, we will never know if he texted those equipment/ball guys). In both cases, the franchise was punished. 

 

If the tapes were available and Brady's phone was available, we'd have 100% transparency to whether there was merit to the accusations. Now, all we have is speculations.

 

To me, there is way too much smoke for no fire behind it to exist. Occam's Razor leads me to simpler explanations. :)

I seriously cannot believe we are STILL arguing whether or not the patriots cheated on multiple occasions.

It's been proven. We'll never know how much it helped them and that's part of what's so infuriating about cheating. Pats fans think it didn't help them at all (riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight), and Pats haters think they wouldn't have gone to a single Super Bowl had it not been for cheating. The truth is likely somewhere between those two but we will never know how much it really helped. It's why their success absolutely is tainted.

The amazing thing in this whole topic to me is why the Pats even feel the need to try to "bend the rules" (for those that don't feel they have ever cheated) when they are good enough to win on their own merit?  That one has always puzzled me.

 

Do I feel they ever cheated?  Yes.  Do I feel they ever needed to in order to attain their goals?  Absolutely not.

Do you feel stronger now? I mean putting down a 10 yr old kid? Takes a big man to do that huh?  Or

Then again, we know that most patriot fans can't even spell science let along win a science fair...  :catfight:

You are right because they are too busy attending playoff games and Super Bowls.

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
