Patriots cheated on Dolphins offense also


[For all of you that consistently criticize me but nonetheless come to this blog more often than you sit down to eat, I am announcing this is my final blog entry. More on that later.]
Today we are going to discuss the fact that the Patriots, cheaters and champions that they are, have been further busted by the NFL.
As you know, they were fined $750,000 as an organization, had to forfeit a first-round pick this year, and coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 for taping the defensive signals of other teams.
Seems they also stole opponents' offensive signals, too.
At least they stole the Dolphins offensive signals, according to a report by USA Today.
Among the tapes delivered by former New England video employee Matt Walsh to the NFL is a tape marked to indicate it contains the Miami Dolphins' offensive signals from an Oct. 7, 2001 game against the Patriots.

"One of the tapes is labeled that way. Until we review it, we don't know what's there," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the newspaper.

It remains to be seen if the NFL will further cite the Patriots for this latest example of how that team trampled league rules against taping opponents. When it originally spanked the Patriots last season, the league noted the punishment was for videotaping opponents' defensive signals, never mentioning offensive signals.

By the letter of Commissioner Roger Goodell's statement, the taping of offensive signals was not included in that punishment. So further punishment seems in order if the Patriots indeed gained a competitive advantage in that game and others as a result of taping offensive signals.

Taping of signals is considered to be an advantage in an ensuing game, generally after coaches have had time to study the signals. In the best case scenario, the Patriots could have gained an advantage in the second half, after studying Miami's offensive signals at halftime.

The problem is the Patriots lost the Oct. 7 game 30-10 so no amount of cheating could really have helped them. They did win the rematch on Dec. 22, 2001, 20-13, but the thing that killed the Dolphins that game was, well, the Dolphins.
Lamar Smith fumbled at the 2 yard line, ending Miami's hopes for one score. Jed Weaver caught a pass for 19 yards and fumbled, ending another drive. Both Pat Surtain and Sam Madison drew crucial penalties inside the Miami 25 yard line that led to New England points. And Ed Perry fumbled a kickoff that led to a field goal.

So did the Patriots (and their pictured cheerleaders) cheat? Probably.

But did the Dolphins lose because of it? Didn't look that way.

[I want to say good-bye as this will be my last post on blogger.com. My blogs will now move to typepad.com! What does that mean to me? It means The Herald is going to start making money off this blog because there will be ads about the site. For you, it means nothing. I remain in your lives! But I figured it was a chance to mess with your heads a little.]

Armando,
People check out your blog because of an addiction to football and especially a favorite team. I check every site I know for info on the fins. Honestly look at how the fan base has turned on you. Are so many people crazy or have you managed to piss people off because of your negativity. Negative blogs lead to negative reactions....it's not hard to understand. Basically,get over yourself! We are interested in the parts that come after your jab. NOT YOU!

I WANT TO WIN AND I DON'T CARE HOW. Leave the football to the MEN and I'll leave you to your pure 1-15... and crying and moaning.

The Dolphins and the rest of the NFL will continue to pay for your insolence!

I have no problem with you personally, you just come off like you are really a cooler guy than you are. You have a higher opinion of yourself than you should have. People come to the Herald & the sentienel to see updated Dolphin news. They don't come to Armando, to find out something about the Dolphins. Geez. Give it a break. You spend 10 minutes every other day writing "Who do think will start at QB this year?" & "I think we should Draft Mcfadden" & you think you should win should writing award.

Just a point on the Cheaters. I'm sure there is going to a hundred articles that come out & says "Walsh didn't have the goods" & "the patriots were cleared." He gave them tapes showing that not only were they cheating, taping defensive signals but also that they were taping the offensive signals. He also gave proof that this has been done for 8 straight years. So, who cares whether he taped the walk through of the rams game. He stole all the plays on Offense & Defense & by halftime knew what play on both sides of the ball was going to take place before it happened. No, that's not cheating. There in the clear!!!!!

Find almost any series of posts on the net (any subject!) and chances are you'll find people aggressively using insulting language (that they'd never use in person, of course) towards each other. I think it's a sickness.

There are a couple of incidents that indicated they were cheating. Teddy Bruschis interception of Dan Marino in a wild card game. And another Bruschi interception two years ago at the Dolphin 2 yard line, that he ran in for a touchdown.

Bruschi knew the plays being called. He just had to step into the hole. He didn't even go into coverage on a third and seven. He stepped exactly into the hole just as the ball was being thrown. Timed! And it was a third and 3 at the Dolphins 40. A middle linebacker is watching for a run or tracking someone out of the backfield not stepping neatly into a hole for an interception.

Do they have the 20-3 halftime lead if they didn't cheat? That is the question.

What really bugged me the most is that the Dolphins coaching staff didn't see it. I seen it right in front of me. The Patriots knew the plays being called. Jimmy Johnson was running around with his head up his ass.

But give Saban credit, he got the Patriots back and returned the favour by timing their play calling in New England when they shut them out the next year.

I am surprised that the Herald did sell ads on this before. You must have a bunch of lame brains running the show on their. The blogs are the most fun part of a newspaper. Everthing else is just the same old crapola. Crooked politician, murdering theives, gang bangers and crappy articles about nothing.

but the dolphins actual won that game ... by a BLOW OUT Pats 10 - Dolphins 30


My Point is that I don't think this is a big ideal. These teams get all the information on tapes already. They have videos and videos of teams. What else could they pick up?


I think it still comes to making plays.
But can you double check the score? You blog confused me a bit.

With the plays being called in via the helmet receiver, it makes me wonder exactly what signals they were stealing? Are these audibles or what? It doesn't make sense...

Not that I'm defending the Patsies, I hope they lose more draft picks. Don't fine them, take the picks. In the long run that hurts them worse. But I still don't understand what they would be stealing.

Hate to tell you pal but the tapes Walsh turned in were nothing the league hadnt seen already. All the Patriots haters will continue to cry "cheaters!" but the bottom line is that your team is doing the same goddamn thing. If it were really "cheating" would they have lost the games against the Dolphins? I doubt it. Keep crying about it though. Maybe the Pats will come to Miami and Brady will throw another 6 TDs on your sad excuse of a football team and then watch as all the bandwagon fans jump ship.

Walsh took money from the Patriots organization to not turn in the one tape that would have buried the Patriots - The Rams tape. The tapes that were given were allowed to be given because that was not anything new. The Rams tape probably went for millions; which was Walsh's real reason for not coming forward with the tapes sooner and making the NFL wait months for the tapes. Comeon, Walsh had nothing to gain by giving those tapes to the NFL and alot of money to gain by giving the Rams tape to the Patriots. Wake up everyone. There was alot of dealing that took place.

Thank you Carl.

Ramsterone, I have already been looking into this. I am told Roy Williams has had a lot of trouble fitting into the 3-4 scheme. I mean any 3-4 scheme, including the one used by Bill Parcells.

The guy struggles to stay with tight ends or anybody coming out of the backfield. He seems best suited, and had has best years, in the 4-3 scheme the Cowboys used before Parcells went to Dallas.

Having said that, the Cowboys added Dave Campo to serve as secondary coach this year and it seems hard to fathom they will give up on Williams without giving Campo a chance to work with him.

hari cane - Youll be extremely lucky if the Dolfags go 7-9 this year. Heck, Id even say 6-10 would be a miracle season. Glad the Dolfags drafted a OL with the #1 pick when they have no QB for him to protect.

Jackson - Going 19-0 and being the most dominant offense the league has ever seen will be how the '07 Pats will be remembered. Yes, not winning the SB will be part of that memory, and a crappy part at that, but its a mere scratch on a near-perfect season. You act like youve seen teh Dolfags win a SB before, which I doubt you have. Whatever helps you sleep at night, pal. The only laughing you douchebags should be doing is at Jason Taylor as he frolics around like a queer on TV. Talk about a disappointment.

QB Flacco makes solid first impression with Ravens

"The one pass he threw to Mark, I think it was 50 yards down the field in the air, and he put it on target," wide receiver Derrick Mason said. "The way he commanded the huddle, I think that speaks volumes for him. He's got to continue to do that. I think the more and more he's out there, the more and more he's around the guys, he'll get used to everybody and be more confident."



Chad Henne was terrible in practice today. He struggled with his accuracy and was seemingly tired because his sideline throws had very little gas on them.


Oh, no tell me we didn't blow it on another QB.

Dolphins actual record this year should be 2-14, yeah it sucks but it should be like that... and I will never forget what they did against Joe Gibbs and the Redskins: 52-7, Bellichick left Brady in the 4th quarter of that game when he should have taken him out way before that. 6 of the 16 scores last season were either of 30 or more points, yes, I know they played really bad teams like the Dolphins, but isn't that suspicious?

NE went on to win the superbowl. BUT, if they hadn't been illegally videotaping offensive and defensive signals that year who knows what would have happened. Belichick is a cheat! NYScott

"It means The Herald is going to start making money off this blog because there will be adds about the site."

For a writer you dont spell very well, eh? Since you likely slept through your English courses, here is a refresher - "Ad" is short for advertisement, "Add" is to put two or multiple things together.

I read the article (by Mark Grey) about Taylor and Parcells. First off, the guy is a terrible writer. Second his opinion is immature and short sighted. "This Parcells tough guy act is starting to get old". I didn't realize that all of these years Parcells was just acting and not really being himself, he should win an oscar. Then the hack goes on to say, "make no mistake about it, the guy knows football and can coach it as well as anyone who has ever lived, it's the way he handles things I don't agree with". Whhhaaat?! He is a proven winner so doesn't that make "the way he handles things" a proven way to get results? Then he goes on to complain about how he "ran Emmitt Smith out of town" like he should have kept an older RB during a rebuilding phase. He dumped salary and got younger players that are now in their prime which is why Dallas is one of the best teams in the league. But somehow Grey thinks that was a bad move. This was the best, there was much more to pick apart but I will leave it at this. "Who is he to tell Taylor he is stuck somewhere"? He's the boss right? Parcells is doing what is best for the MIAMI DOLPHINS and Jason Taylor is (and I don't blame him) doing what is best for Jason Taylor. I will be a Dolphin fan for life so I'm going to have to side with Tuna on this one. When Jason leaves he will leave us with some great PAST memories but when Parcells leaves, hopefully he leaves us with a great FUTURE on a path to the superbowl. I'll say this, the article made me laugh because I realized that any wannabe with a PC can now start a website and call themselves a writer. NYScott
