    NONSTEELERS: New Spygate Brewing?

    Texans Allege ‘Fishy’ Adjustments By The Patriots


    Houston (CBS Houston) - The Texans defense struggled against Tom Brady and the Patriots. But then again, who doesn’t?

    After the Texans 34-31 loss, defensive end Antonio Smith made it clear he thought Brady had a little extra help in carving up their defense to the tune of 365 passing yards.


    “Either teams are spying on us or scouting us,” Smith said.


    The nine-year veteran says the Texans added a new defensive wrinkle this week but the Patriots ’miraculously’ knew it was coming.

    “It was just miraculous that they changed up some things that they did on offense that keyed on what we put in this week,” Smith said. “There’s no way. We have not did it ever (sic) before and they ain’t never changed it ever before so it was just kind of fishy.” ()


    In 2007 the Patriots were involved in a scandal commonly know as ‘Spy Gate’ where Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 and the team had to forfeit a first-round draft pick for secretly taping coaches.


    “(Brady) knew what we were doing.” linebacker Joe Mays said.


    “It is a specific thing that was important to what we were going to do today that they did all year.” Smith added.


    The Patriots deciding to spy on a 2-9 team a week after their biggest win of the season seems like a stretch. But if the allegations are proven true, it would certainly be a major scandal for a Patriots team gearing up for a playoff run.

    Even when the Pats have minimal talent on their roster they still seem to have an edge over most everyone else.

    He was 36-44 at Cleveland with only 1 winning season in 5. It's amazing (in a sketchy way) what he's done in NE.

    This Pats team isn't that good IMO. I wouldn't be surprised given how average Brady has been for much of the season.

    Make no mistake, the difference in the game was Gronk. Roethlisberger could win a lot of games with a player like him on the roster.

    Pretty smart move by Smith. Now everyone is talking about the Pats and cheating instead of focusing on a pre-season favorite mired in a 10-game losing streak.

    Because after all, no other team in the history of the NFL ever came back from being down 10 points at half-time.

    Nah... they arent putting up 55 vs anyone else with Gronk. The difference was Clark and Troy trying to guess instead of keeping their assignments.

    ..and no disrespect but Ben ain't no Brady.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Then again, no other team in the history of the NFL ever cheated their way to 3, THREE POINT championships. You guys have had some great talents and Brady is one of the best ever. But Brady made Belichick, not the other way around. It's a disservice to him and others, the extent to which Belichick will go to try to win. I wouldn't be surprised in the least to hear that he's still trying to find ways to cheat the game to his advantage.

    Because of the history of the Pats, there will always been suspicion. It is the perception now that they cheated and only received a "slap on the wrist" from the NFL top brass. This will always haunt them going forward.
