    The accusation of the patriots cheating during the regular season game has opened up numerous conversations about how long they have been doing it. The Eagles thought the Pats cheated against them in a 24-21 victory, with no evidence other than what they believe was "always knowing their plays" and “They threw an unbelievable amount of screen passes that game.  The Pittsburg Steelers accused the Patriots of cheating against them in two of their AFC title games with no evidence at all. Simply stating they went in at half time and came out and seemed to know all our plays. How about you lost the game because the Patriots played better the entire game, and chose not to play one half football like many teams out there.      Why I think this is ridiculous is because it takes a team to beat a team. Yes having an advantage can help dictate how a team does during the game but it won’t ultimately determine who wins and how loses. The fact that all these team are now coming out and using the recent situation with the patriots as a scapegoat for their past loses is not only stupid but its just pointless.  There’s no way of proving anything, you got beat, plain and simple.  This type of cheating has been around in the NFL for a long time, the Patriots are the ones to get caught and will get penalized just fully so. But for other teams to tarnish the Pats previous Super Bowl victories is just unfair.  A team has a QB to disguise counts and plays and can even change plays at the line if he thinks the Defense is on to them. The Defense has a defensive captain who is in charge of the same thing.  So to blame a bunch of past loses on the fact that another team may have had an edge during those games, just makes those players and team look stupid.            The Patriots were fined 750 thousand dollars and draft picks to be determined which is fine, but to tarnish their record of the past with no conclusive evidence is the same as accusing Bonds of Steroid use. The Patriots are probably laughing at the fine and the draft pick situation. The Patriots over the years can make a last pick look great and even have players they can trade away for other draft picks if need be.  They can make what seems like a crappy situation look like an amazing one.
