Anyone that has paid attention to me on here ever since Spygate knows that I have always believed that Ernie Adams enabled 'video taping being just what all teams do, the Pats just got caught' or 'it didn't really help them' into a much more strategic scenario. Adams literally has a photographic memory & began studying military strategy & scouting local football teams at a very young age. Bellichrck met him at some private school sng they became chums.

I think Adsms broke down video film like a card counter breaks down a deck of cards. He has no social skills though & could never be a head coach dealing with media. I think he is a huge influence on Bellichick. They are a dynamic duo & Adsms has been a constant in Bellichicks staff forever at nearly every stop.

The reason I write this is right after the Giants got up 9 I saw they showed Bellichick on the phone, & the phone had a piece of white athletic tape with 'ERNIE' written in sharpie.

I don't have an issue with the pats employing Adams. It's not against any rule. Couldn't every team go out and hire someone they considered a genius to break down film?

The filming was cheating, no question. But just having Adams around was/is not.

No, its not. Counting cards isn't illegal in Vegas either. But the Casino finds out you get banned for life and your knees snapped with a ball bat.

The point is that a guy like Adams can be invaluable to chart tendencies and formations as well as formulate game plans...

But, when combined with the filming and the (alleged) radio misuse (per Doug Flutie) in live action situations, it becomes a fairly serious problem...

If you read the article from the link I provided, you can read for yourself that Ernie Adams legitimately has a photographic memory. He learned the Giants playbook in one night when there.

Im all for a good conspiracy theory. But the Patriots did lose. What ever edge Adams provided yesterday, didnt yield a W.

Correct. Because, it would only help in conjunction with the illegal filming and radio misuse...

I don't think anyone is saying that having a photographic memory is against the rules...

the players still have to execute... and yesterday they didn't.

There is no doubt the cheating helped them. If the NFL had any balls they would have launched a longer more thorough investigation. But, even the Rooneys knew that the NFL, as a business, would only suffer.

The first round pick and fines were not enough. The Pats should have received a stiffer sentence and B Bel should have been suspended.

Why didn't they have a 30pt lead?
