Cheaters Always

Once again the Patriots are being investigated for cheating.  This time it involves the use of drones to film practices.

If true, this will be the 2nd time the Cheats are in trouble for filimg practices…

This is bigger than deflate gate in my opinion.  There are three teams being investigated.  The other two are the Cowboys and Giants.

Let’s see what happenes.  You can read about the story here:

    Everyone is talking about Brady getting a fine instead of a suspension. I would be done with the NFL it that happens. It’ll be just as rigged as the NBA.
    Isn’t it enough that Brady and the pats get all the calls, now they’re allowed to cheat and get away with it.

    I’m sure Belichick knows nothing about it.

    I just read Chris Squire died. Four For who don’t know, he was one of the most talented Rock bassist I ever heard. For proof, listen to Roundabout by Yes. He also was a solid dinner e and had great harmonizing skills. 67 years of age. RIP.

  4. Tim Knight says:

    Try, I said this on the last blog.

    That sucks that Chris Squire has passed. He was an awesome bassist and backing vocal. Wrote some really great songs with Yes. RIP Chris!

    • Try Pod says:

      I knew you would know.. There are a few of us who love bands because of the skill of the artist.
      My guess is that now that he’s passed, Yes is done. We’ll get Jon to go out with a few of the past members and do tribute stuff. Bruford hated Squire, so I don’t expect to hear from him, besides the fact he retired several years back.

    Nothing will come of this except meaningless noise. The Cheatriots are given free rein by the league to employ any tactics they can to win. When they are caught, they obfuscate and deny. The league bows up and pretends to be outraged, but behind the scenes, evidence is being destroyed and distractions and delays are put in place to try and quell public outrage. The league then has their shills on NFL network and ESPN begin to make excuses for the Cheats, claiming that whatever cheating NE is accused of didn’t really help them anyway and they are still a great team. Talking heads will work themselves into orgasmic pleasure praising Brady, Kraft, Belicheat and the entire organization. The NFL network will devote an entire week of programming to shows about the Cheatriots greatness and features on the lovable oaf Gronk making an ass of himself in various acts of public idiocy. The incidents of cheating that have come to light barely scratch the surface of the Cheatriots rule breaking. Who knows what chicanery Belicheat presides over that still goes on as the league nods knowingly and looks the other way. Belicheat has the NFL over a barrel. He could bring the league to it’s knees if he ever came clean and revealed the breadth and scope of the Cheatriots cheating. Throw in the fact that Goodell’s striped goons basically act as the Cheatriots “12th man”, and you can see why being in the same division with these shameless charlatans seems hopeless.

  6. Al in MIA says:

    If the NFL had any balls (no pun intended) they would punish Belicheat. After all, when no one steps forward to admit wrong doings on any team (corporation) etc, the top man bears the ultimate responsibility.

    • Tim Knight says:

      He doesn’t know what goes on with his team, people within the organization are always doing stuff behind his back because he’s just a puppet. LOL

  7. getterdone says:

    WOW, hate to see that Chris Squire passed. Loved Yes growing up & the album art. Such a talented ensemble of flavorful sounds!
    Pissed I never saw them live. But the music will live on!
    RIP Chris!

  8. getterdone says:

    Yes was due to come to Clearwater, FL. in Aug….damn it! Enjoy this great concert video.

  9. Rockphin says:

    I am certainly not one to defend the NE Patriots, but from what I can tell they did not break any NFL rules. It appears they broke FAA rules recording THEIR OWN PRACTICES. Nothing to see here. Just a click grab by the writer.

  10. Mike E. says:

    RIP Chris Squire! Didn’t know Yes well, but liked their music, and man, could that guy play bass guitar. Long Distance Runaround is insane!

  11. bat says:

    Tim … Did you happen to see how my Bruins blowed it up this off season? … missing the playoffs must have consequences …lol

  12. Mike E. says:

    What a day at Citi Field yesterday. We got to see the extra innings win the first game in the rain, and then it cleared up for rookie Steven Matz. He pitched a gritty game, gave up a solo HR to lead off batter Brandon Phillips, but then settled down nicely. 7 2/3 innings, 2 runs, but at bat, the kid was a star! 3-3, 4 RBI’s in his debut. Then for the cherry on top of the sundae (Sunday?), got to see the Steve Miller Band. What a freaking awesome day!

  13. Mike E. says:

    Just for fun . . .

  14. Mike E. says:


    I have never sat in seats like that either. Section 13 which is just a little off home plate towards 1st base, 9th row up, actually the 1st row of the next section above the seats that are right at field level, just a few feet from that. That’s the way to watch a ball game. My wife loved it, and she was totally paying attention to both games. Those seats are $197 per ticket, but thankfully my sister in law got us the tickets for free, her boss wasn’t using them and offered them to her, and she took them.

  15. Brian in NY says:

    That’s awesome you got to go to the game yesterday! A buddy of mine went as well.

  16. bat says:

    Tim .. First they fired the GM, Chiarelli ..then on the day of the NHL draft they traded Soderberg, Lucic and Dougie Hamilton in separate deals for DP’s and a couple of prospects ..and I don’t believe they’re done. ..Only issue I have is that they left Julien in place.

  17. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E, oh okay I thought we discussed Matz pitching on Sunday and I was saying too bad he’s not pitching when you’re going. Either way glad you had a great day.

  18. Mike E. says:


    They should have done those things before they played the Canucks a few years ago. lol

  19. bat says:

    Mike .. LOL ..It wouldn’t have mattered, anybody they threw out there could have roughed up the Sedins and sent them into their shell …

  20. Mike E. says:

    LOL Bat, so true. They were like frightened puppies on the ice in that series.

  21. Mike E. says:

    Tim, Bri

    The Mets can easily have one of the best pitching staffs in MLB for the next 5-10 years, but they desperately need bats. That offense is truly anemic.

  22. Tim Knight says:

    Bat, what prompted all this change with the Bruins, one season barely missing the playoffs?

  23. getterdone says:

    Mike E, Some people call you the space cowboy,
    Some call you the gangster of love
    or Some people call you Maurice,
    But everyone knows you as Mr. Hand…. 😉

    • getterdone says:

      (correction) But everyone here calls you Mr. Hand… 😉

      jk/bb ….glad you got to see not only the Mets win but a Steve Miller concert as well. Now that’s a double header!

      • Mike E. says:

        Thanks man – I feel bad that I’ve only been to Citi Field twice now, but this was a fantastic experience. It was really a triple header, because Game 1 was the pickup from the suspended game from Saturday night, it picked up from the 6th, and it went to the 13th inning when the Mets finally won it. Game 2 was the Matz game.

  24. bat says:

    Tim ..Yes .. I don’t think the Bruins played with a sense of urgency down the stretch ..Almost like they felt there was no way they could possibly miss the playoffs ..They dropped many key games to inferior opponents .. That sort of complacency can’t be tolerated ..IMO

  25. Tim Knight says:

    Mike E, I often go back to the Mets game after about 5 minutes and we’re back out on defense. LOL

  26. getterdone says:

    Dang Mike, that’s a lot of baseball & concert all for 1 ticket. Congrats.
    Must’ve been a long ass day.

  27. getterdone says:

    Mike Evans suggested quarterback play kept him from doing even more as a rookie.
    Evans caught 68 balls for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns with Josh McCown and Mike Glennon as his quarterbacks. “The quarterback would just look me off, and then I’d be dead,” Evans said. “And I didn’t understand, because I always think I’m open. Just throw that thing up.” Now Evans has an upgrade in Jameis Winston, the Julio Jones “X” role in Dirk Koetter’s offense and is still sharply ascending at age 22 (in August). The ceiling here is sky high.
    This what we hope we’re getting in Devante Parker, as well as a progressing Lazor & Tanny offense!!!

  28. Tim Knight says:

    By the time TC starts Parker will be about 2 months removed from surgery. He had the surgery in early June. TC isn’t until late July. How much time does it take for putting a screw in to heal?

  29. getterdone says:

    Chris Squire plays that Rickenbacker like a lead. Gonna miss his chops!

  30. getterdone says:

    Tim, I think Parker will be practicing on a limited basis the first week to 10 days of camp. Then likely eased in by 2-3rd preseason game.

    • getterdone says:

    That has the potential to be a high as hell YPC backfield right there! Our offensive line was actually pretty damn good run blocking last year too and now with a second year in the system we look to be even more efficient.

    I think our offense overall is really going to take off this year. With our high percentage receiving crew and Ryan Tannehill having full control of the offense and that explosive backfield we are going to score a lot more points this year.

    With Suh and a healthy Misi in the middle of our D and with Jones & Delmas on the field together from the start of the year all we need is for Taylor to step up (which from the reports he is) We are going to WIN a playoff game this year. Money.

    (Confession; I have been drinking since 2pm and not just Homeraide)

    Must suck to be a really hot woman who gets old. I’m at the pharmacy today waiting for a script. They have this privacy pad with two footprints a way back and a sign that says, please wait here till next customer is finished.

    mid-50ish woman in high heels and looking like she is going to a club comes in from the side aisle and jumps right in when the person at the counter leaves. And worst thing was she gives me this, “oh yes I’m doing this” look in the eyes before she does. Knew exactly what she was doing…..and so did the woman at the counter; she goes, “I’ll be right with you” over the chick’s head and then actually called in another woman who was sorting scripts to the next window to take care of me.

    Biotch was still pretty good looking (must have been a stunner back when), but she had this ex-model getting older appearance. The days at cutting lines at the hot clubs are already over for her, but guess she can still do it at CVS. Guessing she ain’t gonna be liking what happens down the road when people just laugh at her go to moves.

  42. Rockphin says:

    I have this feeling this year (as opposed to the feeling I have every year including the Cam Cameron season…LOL) that there is something different about the squad. I don’t exactly know how to explain it. It just feels more like I KNOW more than hope things will be better this year. It just feels right.

    • stangerx says:

      Hope always runs strong this time of year, but I got the same feel. That feel still doesn’t include enough talent to be one the big dogs though. Just one to be in the legit hunt.

      • Tim Knight says:

        How many big dogs are there really?

      • stangerx says:

        I’d say you start with a couple and then see who adds in. In the AFC right now it’s the Pats, Broncos and Colts. One or more may drop out, but then a team like the Ravens or others could sneak in. Figure we’d be in the sneak in possibility with a number of others……….but we have to sneak in first.

  43. Rockphin says:

    Or it could just be that I rebuilt the still from the slab up after blowing up the still in the shed and the tree was under last season and I am just getting really good quality Homeraide out of it…….

  46. Tim Knight says:

    I don’t look at the Colts as a big dog because they beat up on a shit division and get knocked around by other good teams. Luck does make them better than they are though.

  47. Tim Knight says:

    We’ve proven we can play with anyone when healthy. The key for this year’s team is to be even better than before and jump some other teams.

  49. Al in MIA says:

    The last time the Dolphins had a winning divisional record was back in 2009 (4-2). It’s been 2-4 or 3-3 every season since.
    Having a losing record in the division is unacceptable and until that is a winning record, an 11-5 season or better will not be in the works.
    Granted, the current front office has done plenty the last 2 years to address the visible weaknesses that play into the strength of divisional opponents.
    I’m hoping this year the DL & OL investments finally pay off in clubbing the Jets, Bills, Pats a littler harder. Suh will feast off the Jets/Bills QB situations and the Fins D should be able to apply the choke hold manouver regardless of what Miami’s offense does in those games.

  50. Al in MIA says:

    I think the biggest weakness at the moment for Miami lies with the OL (big question marks remain on interior OL experience/consistency) & TE (hinging on Cameron’s healthy which is still iffy) units with S position (FS looks dicey) running closely behind.
    Rashad is very good but 1 man doesn’t make a two man squad great by himself unless he is cut from the same cloth as Troy Polamalu or Ed Reed.
    Not sold on Walt’s experience though I feel he’s got the right instincts and I’m still skeptical that Delmas can hold up over the course of the season (let alone just be average while on the field).
    I think the LB starting unit won’t be that great relative to the NFL standard of starters but they should be productive and the 2nd unit will be very good IMO (inexperienced but talented; i expect a couple of the rookies to make it).
    I like the current WR unit as it plays to the schemes strength as well as removes the pompous players they had last year. Even without Parker, the unit to me is the same as last year in terms of capabilities. Jennings is old but still way more consistent than Hartline/Wallace. Stills can run post routes all day like Wallace can with the exception that Stills can win with contact on tight throws while Wallace seemingly cannot on a consistent basis.
    RB group will continue to improve.
    CB crew will be the most improved imo and the surprise group this season (not DL but that’s because the DL is already good).

  51. Al in MIA says:

    Agreed. The Colts will struggle in the playoffs against the likes of the Ravens, Bengals, Patriots, Steelers who can all pound their defensive into the ground and chew up plenty of clock reducing the Colts game to Luck’s magic. All those teams I mentioned all have enough on offense to keep the Colts far away in a close game.

  52. Mike E. says:

    OK, so if the joke ever comes up “How many Jews does it take to take apart a swing set?” The answer is 3, especially without the proper tools. lol

    I expect Dion Sims to be more of a factor in the passing game this year. Even Cameron said he can really run for a big dude and he’s a better receiver than he’s probably given credit for.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Sims has soft hands and nimble feet, even if he is not straight-line fast. He has shown a very good ability to adjust to the ball in the air, which big TEs sometimes struggle with.

  73. naplesfan2010 says:

    I propose that we keep 4 TEs on the 53 with at least 3 active on Sunday and put the other 2 on the PS. Cameron, Sims, Lynch, and Semisch on the 53 and Semisch inactive but available if the scouting report says the opponent is vulnerable to jump ball throws in the RZ (small corners). Put Robinson and Stoneburner on the PS in case of injury (knock on wood).

    If we have the roster spots of course.

    • getterdone says:

      A likely number that Philbin will keep, but not necessarily Semisch over Stoneburner or Robinson…that’s what camp is for. 😉

    • Tim Knight says:

      Every time I’ve done a 53 I have 3 TEs possibly 4. I don’t know enough about Robinson, Semisch and Stoneburner. At this time I don’t know enough about Lynch either other than he was a 5th rd pick last year. It will be interesting to see if there is a gem in that group.

  74. getterdone says:

    Dissension in Seattle…LOL@ Pete Carroll.

    Seahawks LE Michael Bennett said the Seahawks “want me to play five positions but pay me for one.”
    Bennett continues to tell anyone who will listen that he’s contemplating a holdout. That’s nice, but the Seahawks just signed him to a four-year, $32 million contract 15 months ago. NFL deals don’t get redone one year into a pact and Bennett likely knows this.


    In an interview with ESPN, Russell Wilson mentioned $25 million as an annual salary figure.
    Wilson continues to engage in subtle yet public negotiations with the Seahawks as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract. “No matter how much I’m getting paid, whether it’s $25 million or $1.5 million. I’ll be ready to go,” he said. The $1.5 million number is what he’s set to make next season and $25 million would be $3 million more than current NFL leader Aaron Rodgers’ $22 million average annual rate. After the interview aired, Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers wrote the following on Twitter: “I wish he had said $40 million. Then this would be really interesting. #patience #relax #no_deadline.”

    I get his logic but versatility isn’t exactly a huge luxury.
    I would expect that a reasonable demand would be to take average snaps taken per position and average salary per position in the NFL as a base line to negotiate.

    I like your enthusiasm for McCain as a LB but not sure he’s as well rounded as the other guys available for the position.
    McCain has been productive when he lines up on the line but I haven’t noticed anything that stands out in the open field (maybe I’m not seeing things right). He plays a little too much N/S when he’s off the line than E/W IMO.
    But going back to Omar’s comments, I still think Tripp has better skills than Sheppard. The other undrafted rookies should have a shot as well (at least starting 1 LB position is there for the taking IMO). The only guys I consider true starter material (guys that can start for more than half the teams in the NFL right now) are Misi (irrespective of LB position) & Jenkins.

    • stangerx says:

      That third LB spot is a head scratcher. Got to think the guy will line up at SLB and then get yanked when we go the nickel. Also have to think teams will be running wide on us a lot this year. So setting the edge will be key, but then so will the ability to pursue to the sideline and cover on the short routes. Think the best person we have for that is Misi……but then he’s probably going to be in the middle (which I actually think will be less pressure). McCain in the MLB might be best overall.

  86. wyoming85 says:

    At least it would be easier to explain than if it was you when you search for Dancing men! 😉

  87. Tim Knight says:

    I don’t think any of us have seen enough of McCain at SOLB to know what he is other than the coaches like his potential. We might see a rotation of LBs and the same with the DBs.

    • stangerx says:

      Absolutely we haven’t. We know enough to know we don’t have a solid third from past performance……but then we don’t see what the coaches see either.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I don’t think it will be difficult to get better than Wheeler. We re-signed Sheppard and signed Paysinger, the coaches like McCain and Tripp and they’re looking to see if we can find a gem or developmental guy from the 4 UDFAs.

      • stangerx says:

        I’m not uber worried about it. There will be a guy there and he should be less than full-time. Gonna have a two-downer and whoever it is his job is going to be easier cause of the beef in the middle.

  88. stangerx says:

    Part of what makes you start liking a guy.

    “After making the team as an undrafted rookie free agent, Chris McCain made it a routine of picking out a kid in the stands before every game and then walking and talking with him during warmups.”

  91. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, Philbin has talked about McCain working at SOLB and cross training as a nickel edge rusher because they like his skills there. That ability will keep him on the field and we could still see the ‘speed package’ with a DT coming off the field and a DB coming on and using say Wake, Suh, Vernon and McCain up front. Possibly 3 down lineman and one standing up (Vernon or McCain) moving around as a blitzer.

    • stangerx says:

      For sure we may mix in other LBs than Jenkins and Misi into the nickel. Might be some mix and max factor there. I was talking the base, but we have to be ready. Gotta have back-ups after all to start with. Think Jenkins will be a three-downer though with his pass coverage ability.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Agreed on Jenkins, I view him as our best LB at this time and he’s still ascending.

  92. getterdone says:

    Dear God, I ask that you make football season start early this year. Please! Amen

  93. getterdone says:

    In case nobody develops in our LB corp behind Suh. 😉

    CSN Philly still believes the Eagles will find an “acceptable” trade offer for ILB Mychal Kendricks.
    Kendricks and Brandon Boykin are expected to be the next talented Eagles that Chip Kelly lets loose. He can especially afford to move on from Kendricks with DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso, Najee Goode, Brad Jones and rookie Jordan Hicks at inside linebacker. The Eagles were reportedly offering Kendricks in exchange for a second-round pick at the draft.

  94. Mike E. says:

    I’d be surprised if Sheppard is anywhere but the MLB spot. Not saying he’s definitely going to start at MLB, but I don’t think you’ll see him at OLB. Either he wins the MLB job or he’s backing up Misi. I think it’s going to be either McCain or Paysinger at SLB

  95. Tim Knight says:

    GD, you also have to accept God created aerobic dancers. LOL

    Rex about to screw up another AFC East team. I hope the Pats hire him next. 😉

    The Buffalo News believes it’s “really possible” the Bills name Tyrod Taylor their starting quarterback.
    Taylor, Matt Cassel and E.J. Manuel split reps evenly throughout the offseason program, with Cassel performing the poorest. It’s not that far-fetched to suggest Taylor could beat out Manuel and his 58.6 career completion percentage. Rex Ryan appears most enthusiastic about Taylor, the quarterback he “hand picked.” Taylor has never started an NFL game, spending the last four years as Joe Flacco’s backup.

  97. Mike E. says:

    Not only doesn’t Rex know QB’s, he doesn’t know how to pick a team with one either.

    Ive got a few Ravens buddies who are very high on Tyrod. A lot of them saw him as an upgrade to Flacco, and were happy they got a superbowl but unhappy because they though had Flacco failed that year they mgiht turn the reins over to him. Im not saying he is great, im not convinced they know what they are talking about but he may actually be a lot better option than the other two considering those i know who follow them closely were very upset to see him go.

    he cant, he is too busy setting up his brewery

  104. Tim Knight says:

    We just got a new logo and uniforms, why throwbacks already? How about establishing the new ones as a brand of winning.

  105. D says:

    Concerning Tyrod, he is a mobile style QB the kind Rex likes, im not saying i feel the same as the Ravens fans i know, im just saying he probably is better to run Ryans offense than the other two. Also i def dont think heis better than Flacco, but im also not overly impressed with him either. If he is a top tier QB, he’s the bottom run of that top tier.

  106. Al in MIA says:

    I’ll give Tyrod this; He probably will take more sacks rather than throw INT which is what Rex might be after considering his options.

  107. wyoming85 says:

    Dad was WRONG!!!!!!!
    Cheaters do prosper!

  108. New Age says:

    Taylor wasn’t amazing at VT and they gave him every chance to be. He is definitely more in the Vick/Kaep mold than other QBs. Great running ability and throws a solid deep ball but his accuracy is awful. So was his decision making. Still probably an upgrade over the other two though.

  109. stangerx says:

    “Quite honestly, yeah, we had to tone him down there a little bit. That was a good thing. We had to back him off because he’s really something. First of all he’s an extremely intelligent player. I’ve been totally impressed with his football knowledge and he comes out to the practice field. He’s extremely hardworking. He’s the first guy in line showing the younger guys how to do it. And I’ve never been around a more explosive, powerful man of his size and his athleticism. He’s been everything as advertised.”

    — Coyle on Suh…….man I can’t wait.

    Coyle, You don’t get a player like Suh, a once in a decade type, and coach scared. You grow the biggest set of balls you can imagine and go and whoop everyone’s ass that stands in your way.

    Suh is here, everything is different now.

    D, does Ryan even HAVE an offense? He is historically a Defensive coach and has used several OC’s with different offenses if I an not totally stoned….
