Pretty sure the Pats lost those 2 Super Bowls due to the Giants D-line and 2 incredible catches, one of which was possibly the biggest catch of all time. But if you want to dwell on spygate go right ahead, perhaps whichever team you cheer on might wanna try it out, maybe they will win a Super Bowl.

So the helmet catch by David Tyree was a fluke, and not just an AMAZING play?

How many fluke pass interference calls were there in week 17 when the Pats won that last game against the Giants to go undefeated?

There's no doubt that Belichik is one of the greatest coaches of all time, but I wonder what he would've done in NE without Brady. Now granted he deserves all the credit because he's the one who took a chance and drafted Tom in the 6th round when nobody else wanted him, but still.

I guess you could say that for just about every great coach in sports history. What would Phil jackson be without MJ23 and Kobe? Who is Mike Shanahan without Elway?

It was an amazing play, but also flukey, yes. Most great plays in sports are. Results of a single, close game, hang on a thread and sometimes it takes fortune, as well as skill to win. Sports fans get upset by this notion, somehow thinking it takes away from the win, but it does not.

No arguments there, I agree with you.

If Belichick is such a genius how'd he manage to loose to the Cardinals this year?

Stop. I'll make it easy for you and tell you. He got out-coached. By the Cardinals' Defensive coach, Ray Horton. (Keep an eye on him. He'll be a HC. It's just a matter of when and for which team.)

Bill Belichick is a genius when it comes to cheating. What I find ironic is that he has never won a Superbowl since the alleged "Spygate" incident. Even though I hate the Giants, I'm glad they were able to expose him for what he truly was.

Remember that time Philadelphia lost 3 straight NFC title games? And then on the 4th try they finally made it to the Super Bowl only to lose to New England. Sounds like someone has sour grapes over Philadelphia's inability to win big games in the playoffs.
