So, i'm still convinced that the Patricheats are cheating a lot. I've never, ever seen a team just appear to read the opponents mind on every, single play on both sides of the ball. It's, like, superfuckingnatural.

As much as i truly hate to say it, that team does look pretty much unstoppable. Not that i'm saying they're just that good- they just seem to know exactly what the opponent will do on every down. Weird.

So. Yeah. Whatever.

I'm starting to think it's already been decided somewhere in the NFL that NE will be awarded the Lombardi Trophy this year. Just for being so fucking awesome.

A huge part of me hope ANYBODY else wins the SB but them. Be great if it was our Steelers, of course. I have my doubts, though, as much as i hate to admit it.

Anybody know how to buld a time machine? I'd like to skip tomorrow's game and jump to the Wild-Card Playoff....

Was just watching the Patricheats going thru the motions to their "undefeated" season.

I noticed something: Brady threw a pass to Stallworth in the strong-side flats(on his right), across his body, while looking to his left deep. Now- he NEVER turned his head to the right until just before he let loose of the ball. In other words he threw that pass without actually looking at his reciever.

That goes beyong "uncanny". It looked to me like somebody was telling him to throw it, maybe thru his headset, to Stallworth in the flats. I don't know if it's legal for anyone to tell a QB where and wen to throw *during* a play or not. But it does seem a little over-the-top...

I'll say it agian:

Brady NEVER TURNED HIS HEAD before he threw the ball. There was NO way he could have seen Stallworth breaking back to him on his right because he was obviously looking deep downfield TO HIS SHARP LEFT.

I know this NE team is cheating. NOBODY wins sixteen games in this league. Nobody.

I'll remind everybody that NE was also cuaght repeatedly with extra, illegal helmet-speaker sets on their sidelines early in the year. They tried to claim that they needed six or eight helmet-speaker sets as "backup" in case the QBs set went out. It is afainst the rules to have speaker/recieving units in any helmet except the QBs.

They're cheating. It won't matter, of course. The NFL won't allow the scandal of it's great Patriot team to dirty up the league, so they'll be allowed to get away with it. But they are still cheating.

I hate those fucks. At least the Colts are just good ballplayers....

The play i mentioned above happened in the top of the fourth quarter just before NYGs first sack of the game...

No sense in even having playoffs this year. It obvious that NE will be handed yet another bogus championship.

Hey, gotta lose some time. So it shall be in the playoffs.

Fuck Bill Belichick.

Talk all you want about records. Records don't equal Super Bowls, just ask Dan Marino (sorry Marino, I love you, but you're helping me prove a point).

Yeah, I think they will get beat in the post-season. At least, threy *should*. It would be great for the league if they did. Kinda prove that nobody is a lock for a SB. But i'm not sure that's gonna happpen. I'm feeling pretty cynical and disgusted about the league this past few weeks, and it's mostly about these Patriots. They just aren't that damned good. Honestly.

I remember the 49ers from the 80s and 90s, and the Cowboys of the early 90s. Those teams were clearly good, even great. They faced adversity and overcame it. They made incredible plays when they needed to. And they almost NEVER benefitted from outrageous officiating.

It's the officiating of Patriots games that sticks out to me. Moss pushes off on almost every play in the endzone but rarely gets called for it. Opponents are called regularly for holding on big third downs. Pass interference is called on opposing defenses who hold Pats offenses. It's almost blatant in my eyes. Either the league has mandated that the Pats go unbeaten, the Krafts have bought off these refs, or the refs subconsciously *want* the Pats to win.

I just don't see the greatness in this team that i remember from previous great teams. All i see is all the chips falling their way, just like they have since the Tom Brady Tuck Ruling in their first AFC Championship game against the Raiders in '01.

All the other great teams of the past have dominated everybody in championship play. The Pats won 3 SBs by 8 points total. Not exactly "dominant". More like "lucky" in my book. And this year the SB is pretty much being handed to them.

It's sad to see so many other teams, our Steelers included, being robbed of a fair chance at a Championship just so the NFL can exploit the huge potential fanbase of the Boston/NE region.

Is nothing pure in sports anymore?

And where is my random steroid testing of all teams by third-party labs? I gaurantee most of the Pats defense are roided out like nuts....

Okay. I feel better. Sort of.

I love our Steelers. I'm proud of them. I hope they do well in post-season, but i doubt anybody will be given a chance to beat NE this year. Just too much money in it for the league for them(NE) to win it all again.

Just my opinion, of course....
