All NFL Teams Should be Investigated For Stealing Signs
by Big Lou
I say that all NFL teams should be investigated. It seems pretty obvious to me that all the teams in the NFL stretch the NFL constitution looking for an edge. Some do it better than others.
And besides what is the big deal about stealing signs? You still have to have the talent to execute and let's face it some of these NFL teams are just too stupid to be able to recognize new signs each week let alone each half.
Baseball teams change signs during the game, what is the matter with Football players...
One thing overlooked in this whole discussion is the fact that New England has smarter, more intelligent players than any other team period.
That is the difference.
Editor's Note Well, that's the point I think. If the Patriots have smarter players -- why do they need to cheat? And, I think it does matter a lot if you know the play the other team is going to run ahead of time. That is a significant advantage. Yes, I know they all try to steal each others signs. And, that is fine -- as long as done legally.
In this case, Belichick and the Patriots crossed the line. Videotaping signs is simply illegal. And Belichick knew it. Not so smart.
