View Full Version : Nü England Cheatriots Using SpyGate Shenanigans?

it sour grapes if you like, but I really feel as if the Patriots knew what was going to happen before the Broncos even attempted it. I FIRMLY conclude that the communications system that the Broncos used was compromised! In the land of SpyGate (New England), the evidence is beyond random chance, as even Phil Simms noted he had NEVER seen so many plays for loss in one game. It was uncanny to say the least! What say you, Mike? -Joe, Castle Rock


Privately, some of the Broncos would agree with you, although this time the spy tactics weren't by video but by person. In particular, the Broncos thought Josh McDaniels had their tendencies on the silent count. The Patriots suspiciously had those up-the-middle blitzes and stunts perfectly timed to J.D. Walton's snap.

Tebow got crushed -- injured even -- on a Patriot sandwich of nosetackle Vince Wilfork and linebacker Rob Ninkovich in the third quarter. Is it too far-fetched to say McDaniels helped make it happen?


It was bogus that McDaniels was able to join the Patriots' staff after he had already completed his season with the St. Louis Rams. Once again, Patriots' coach Bill Belichick outsmarted the people running the NFL office.


Sure, it's sour grapes, Joe. The Patriots were the far better team. But right is right, and McDaniels joining the Pats in the midst of a playoff run was just plain wrong. And looking back, he did give them an advantage. How much, I don't know. But enough for Belichick to believe it was worth bringing him in.

Meh, Sour Grapes. I hate NE, but we just got straight jacked out there. Interesting theory though. Hard for me to believe we'd be using the SAME snap count/tendencies/whatever from when Joshie was here, ESPECIALLY after we knew he was hired for intel.

I think it was more about us not being able to stop their offense than anything

I think it had more to do with play calling that was brutally obvious and completely lacking in creativity more than some dark magic.

I think the fact that our team isnt good had more to do with it.

The broncos finished 1-4 because they probably weren't very good to begin with.

This is exactly what I was talking about in my two other threads. I'm really surprised that this idea isn't getting more attention. Re-watch the game, they knew what was going on. Better yet, compare the difference between the two Patriots games, night and day. Hell even my 65 year old mother told me it was obvious the Patriots knew what the Broncos were doing before I provoked her with my own thoughts on this. And in response to the other thread about why I say we still have a McDanials offense despite the new (Tebow) look, it's still all based on McDanials philosophies, terminology, cadence and count. Do you really think McCoy changed all these in a year with no offseason? If you look at the Orton offense this year it's the same McDanials offense. The only thing that changed with Tebow is the play design and the run until the pass is necessary mind set.

If I was in the Broncos front office I'd be livid, come up with game tape from the two games to provide proof and shove it right up Goodell's ass.

*edit* not promoting the spygate theory in the original question

So audibles are important after all.

Yeah, too bad McDanials designed the audible terminology, knows exactly what the Broncos are looking for to cause them to audible and what they'll likely audible into.

I know exactly what our offense is going to do on most plays without cheating. No reason the Pats wouldn't able to manage the same.

Never underestimate what predictable play-calling and **** o-line play can accomplish.

Pretty much this.

We either run it up the middle or throw it long. Let Tebow throw the short pass, it's his biggest flaw.

And it's not like only passing in obvious passing situations really helps with that either.

I would say that about 85% of the time it was obvious what we were going to run. The playcalling fell into 2 categories.

1- The defense knows it's a run coming because of tendencies.

2-The defense knows a pass is coming because of the situation.

There was really nothing in between, or even an attempt to keep defenses off balance.

Before you look at any conspiracy theories ask yourself this. As just a fan watching over the TV, could you have easily predicted 75% of the down and distance play calls of the Denver Broncos in that game?

If the answer is yes, please hire a more creative Offensive Coordinator and move on.

Sour grapes bitches, it's still our job to block and fight every play.

I don't understand why that's difficult to understand.

It's not about the play calling people. The Patriots knew our tendencies in the first game and they weren't blowing up our o-line play after play. This is about them knowing the offensive language, cadence, count and audibles.

I can't believe the Patriots had any such info. since the Bronco coaching staff would have to be the biggest idiots in the whole NFL to still be using any kind of the same system used by McDaniels. It just wouldn't make any sense. The result of the game had more to do with being too predictable on offense and a defense that didn't do much of anything.

I said before on a different thread, it was like the Raiders/Bucs Superbowl where the Bucs D knew all the raiders O because they didn't change their signals/audibles.

So the Broncos would be at the level of the Raiders for stupidity? That doesn't make me feel better.

Well Fox isn't going to come up with a new signal system, and really is McCoy when the guy can't even figure out that you are allowed to pass on first down?

Well, it's not like you will do that in a shortened week. You can't implement all new calls, but you could vary the (silent) snap count and maybe call some stuff that we haven't seen much this year. It's not like we audible anyways, so that part didn't matter. It's partly that we were out talented, but we were definitely out schemed - like we expected everything we ran against them before to work again, and they made adjustments to stop it.

It's like they had intelligent human beings as coaches and we had a bunch of turnips...

Not changing the system is a very convenient thing to do when your players aren't allowed in for the offseason, you have a new head coach and you're expecting to trade your veteran QB and let the 2nd year QB take over going into camp.

Meh.

**** happens. McDaniels probably did give them insights into our checks and audibles. Karma will get those cheating ****s sooner or later. Just how it goes.

All we can hope for is when it comes crashing down, God allows us the ability to see it.

The fact that they took McDaniels back so quickly... after he failed so abysmally as the Broncos' HC and as the Rams' OC.... and after Spygate II... pretty much tells you all you need to know about the ethics of the New England Cheatriots.

I hate the Ravens... but am gonna be rooting for them tomorrow.
