Against the Eagles and Panthers I thought the Patriots were the better team, but the Rams game is the one that I will forever question.
I don't remember who exactly it was, I think Torry Holt, but he said that it was almost as if the Patriots knew what they were doing every play. (This was a team that was putting up 35+ every game). He also mentioned that when they changed the gameplan was when they started having success, I think they got all their points in the second half, not sure though.
I don't know, I think the penalty they got was pretty weak and if it wasn't so early in Goddell's time as GM, they probably woulda got slapped harder.
But, it's sort of moot unless there is concrete evidence that comes out proving the only reason the Patriots won was because of spying on the opposing team, otherwise it's kinda pointless.
