The Super Bowl runner up OC spurned the Colts, so they go out and get the Super Bowl winning OC. Frank Reich to Indy.

I recall a funny story about some poor bastard having his life destroyed, twice, by Frank Reich. Bet heavily on a college game and lost the farm when Frank Reich came in in the second half and threw six touchdowns in the greatest comeback in college football history. Ten years later he bets the farm on Houston in the playoffs, only to have Reich start in place of Jim Kelly and again lead the biggest comeback in history. Don't know if it's true, but I wouldn't bet against the guy.

Huge fan of Frank Reich, from way back (I actually remember watching that second game that el Barto referred to in real time; it was amazing).   I hope he does well.  I guess I'm tone-deaf to all this because I don't get any sense of karma or schadenfreude or anything like that.  They hired a coach.  They have questions at quarterback.   I don't see "Indy' as anything different than about 15 or 20 other teams in the league.

What an awful downer in an otherwise forward looking off-season. If he is found guilty of anything serious I really hope they cut him. I don't care how good he is, I wouldn't want that kind of asterisk following around the team going forward.

Knock the Pats all you want, but  odds are, if he was a Patriot, he'd be gone by now.


By the way, as a Pats fan, I'm kinda looking forward to this season.  You've got Bill, with perhaps the greatest motivational tools of his career ("See what all the sidebar bullshit got us?  See what all the distractions got us?") and you've got the greatest QB of all time with something to prove (look what happened after he was wrongly accused and wrongly punished for "Deflategate").  Gonna be a good year, baring unforeseen injury.

Brady has nothing left to prove.

Oh, and what happened the season after he was accused of deflating footballs?  He got to the AFCCG, where the Broncos knocked the crap out of him and sent him home.  :coolio

Absolutely.  Lots (most?) of Super Bowls are won by the defence.  You guys stopped The Greatest Show on Turf to win Brady's 1st ring.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

A sissy, passive.....prevent defense with way too much time on the clock when a field goal could win it was behind that SB loss for the Rams. The Rams came back and scored (14) pts in the fourth quarter to tie it only to hand the ball over and trust their defense to hold, then they just play back and allow massive yardage gains instead of staying hungry and going after the Pats.

The Pats have won (5) Super Bowls.....but I consider that first one to be more of a situation where the Rams lost it....rather than the Pats winning it.

Of course you do :lol.  Look, they held the team that averaged 31+ points per game in the regular season (plus 45 and 29 in the 2 playoff games) to 17 with three takeaways.  Don't dismiss that as a failing of the offense.  The Rams didn't suddenly forget how to score.

I'm sure that every team that lost to NE in the Super Bowl feel like they lost the game versus NE winning the game. That tends to happen when they're one score games.

Turnovers were why the Rams lost that game.  They Rams moved the ball up and down the field all day, but 3 turnovers killed them.

And I would point out how the Patriots pick-6 should have been wiped out by the Patriots pass rusher hitting Warner in the head as he released the ball, but, yeah. :lol :lol

It all started in the third grade when Little Jimmy Red Hands clearly cheated at four square. You can’t double hit....everyone knows that but he did, and right on front of Ms. Tate I might add who was the official score keeper.

This is as much to Gary and King as you, but honest question:  So what?  The rules are the rules, I get that, and as a lawyer, I'm a rules guy by nature.  We live by the letter of the law, and we die by the letter of the law.   But - and I do not extend this to crimes that infringe on clear, enumerated rights, like "killing someone" or the like - to some degree, there is no obligation to comport with any law IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES.    Speed limits are clear; I speed.   I also don't complain when I get a speeding ticket.   I can't say I ALWAYS do this, but there are certainly times when I think to myself, "Is this trip worth $250 and a couple of points on my license?"   

I think this idea that every Pats win is tainted is nonsense.  I hate to reduce it to a cliché, but if you're not cheating you're not trying.  I can remember playing hockey (I was a defenseman) and in the slot, the first thing I'd do is put my hand on the other guys stick - that's a signature for you! - which is a 2:00 penalty, IF I GOT CAUGHT.  I got caught once, early on, and figured out there was a way of doing it that was very hard to detect.   

Sean Payton and the Saints.  Maybe they took it a little too far with having money involved, but if you don't think that teams know who's hurt and factor that into their game plan - on both sides of the ball - you're not really paying attention.  I'm not saying they try to hurt the other team, but certainly they're looking for any edge.  So-and-so has a sore ankle?  Try to force him to make cuts on that foot. All day long.

I think there's a difference in operating in the grey zone and knowingly cheating.  Things like videotaping walkthroughs is cheating where as the deflating the balls is grey zone in my mind.  The reason why I don't hold these too hard against the Pats, and still think the Pats (Brady and BB) are the GOAT, is because I don't even think they needed these slight advantages.  Which makes it even more mind boggling that they did any of these things.  But I think that's the competitive nature to try and get every edge.  I also don't believe it when people say "everyone" is doing it.  That's not the case, but I think there's more than just those who get caught.

I think there's a difference in operating in the grey zone and knowingly cheating.  Things like videotaping walkthroughs is cheating where as the deflating the balls is grey zone in my mind.

They didn't videotape walkthroughs.


And I'm not directing this at you, Cram, but do people even know what Spygate was about? What actually happened?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

Yea my memory si a bit fuzzy but just reread this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_New_England_Patriots_videotaping_controversy and I guess my memory fuzz is due to the retracted article stating that, but there is definitely still some questions about it that were left unanswered.  I shouldn't judge them because of that so I'll take back my statement, but instead replace it with videotaping from the sideline.
