Everything is in place for a 4-1 or - GASP! - a 5-0 start.

5-0 is a bit generous. if there 4-2 after 6 jets fans should consider that a huge succes

  • Throughout a span of 6 years, the Patriots video-recorded opposing teams\coaches’ signals for at least 40 games, including postseason games. The Patriots were fined a quarter of a million dollars, Bill Belichick was fined $500,000.00, and the NFL withdrew the Patriots 1st Round Draft Pick.
  • From 2000-2007, the organization would deploy a low-level Patriots employee to sneak into visiting locker rooms and steal playbook sheets during pregame warm-ups.
  • In a 2014 playoff game with the Baltimore Ravens, the Patriots used illegal plays and formations throughout 3 quarters. This falls under the ordinance of “deception” as it sojourns teams from making proper adjustments and\or substitutions.
  • Former Patriots QB Doug Flutie alleged that: in 2005 Flutie overheard a prohibited radio frequency in Tom Brady’s helmet, outside the purview of the NFL-monitored station. During games, sideline officials cut-off open channel(s) and\or communications 15 seconds before the play clock expires. In this violation, the additional frequency would continue speaking to Brady, right up until the snap.
  • During the 2014 AFC Championship, equipment associate: Jim McNally (known by the moniker: “Deflator”) confiscated footballs from officials to deflate below the legal limits. After seizing all twelve footballs, the NFL concluded that 11 were below legal limits. The Patriots were fined $1,000.000.00, the organization was forced to forfeit their 1st Round & 4th Round Draft Picks, and Tom Brady was suspended the first 4 games of the season. (*this suspension was later overturned)

..when this much controversy gets added to Tomlin\Steelers resume, then we can talk. Until then.. the scales are tipped just a bit, in one organizations favor. :thumbsup:

And they don't deserve the benefit of the doubt! They lost that privilege after forfeiting 4 draft picks, and $1,750,000.00 throughout 2 scandals.
How much of an edge it gave them in a game that ended 28-21.. we'll never know. Whether it was a genuine malfunction, or whether it was deliberate.. we'll never know. All we know is their trackrecord.. and THAT'S why the majority of the narrative today is: "Patriots Cheat Again" -vs- "Brady Throws 4"

Jason La`Canfora basically echoed the same thing. You can't make this kind of stuff up.
My brother-in-law is a Pats diehard, and he sounded off last night: "I can't enjoy any god-damn victories anymore with this team, because everytime they do there's some kind of controversy." --and whether it's all just serendipity, we'll never know. But it's difficult to feel bad for them when (quite literally) everything breaks in their favor.

EDIT: And from everything I'm reading.. this happened to just the Steelers for the entire 1st quarter. When the officials went to the Patriots to turn their headsets off for the start of the 2nd quarter (to make things fair) THATS when the Steelers headsets started to magically work again! Lol</p>
i dont remember hearing anything substantiated in fact regarding the extra frequency in bradys helmet. that ones more conjecture than allegation
