Miami Dolphins remain perfect!

17-0 Still Perfect

The Patriots? Not so much.

All hail the counquring New York Giants for keeping the Miami Dolphin's undefeated season perfect and unsullied by those obnoxiouis New England Patriots and their stranglovian, cheating coach Bill Bilichick.

Now that this notion of Tom Brady's invinicabilty is safely out of the way I look forward to the Dolphins resuming their drubbing of the Patsies in Miami. We've got their number no matter how bad we are:

As USA pointed out, "In September and October, the Patriots are 1-13 in Miami. Since the start of the 1999 season, New England is 2-5 in South Florida and 99-42 everywhere else. The meltdowns in Miami include a 21-0 loss last year and a 29-28 defeat in 2004, when the Patriots came into the game 12-1 and the Dolphins were 2-11."

It's not so much the weather, though, it's the fact that for some strange reason Brady gets a tick when he's up against our defense. Jason Taylor might have a little something to do with it, too.[Congratulations to Jason Taylor on winning the 2007 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award!]

Arlen Specter wants answers!

In any case, now that the corornation is off, Arlen Spector can get after the league for helping the Patsies cover-up by destroying the film Bilichick's spy took at the meadowlands. And there are new allegations about the Patriots filming the Ram's practice before Super Bowl XXXVI. reported on Feb. 2:

"A member of the New England Patriots' video staff taped the St. Louis Rams' last walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl, a Boston newspaper reported Saturday . . . Citing an unidentified source, the Boston Herald reported that a Patriots employee recorded the Rams' walkthrough at the Superdome in the New Orleans a day before the Super Bowl. New England beat the heavily favored Rams 20-17 its first NFL title. . . After the Patriots took a team picture, a member of their video department stayed inside the stadium and taped the Rams' session."
Naturally, there's nothing to this at all, right? Just piling on?

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press, "We were aware of the rumor months ago and looked into it. There was no evidence of it on the tapes or in the notes produced by the Patriots, and the Patriots told us it was not true."

Well, the freaking perfect Patriots told them it wasn't true, so that's all you need to know, right? Wrong, Arlen Specter isn't buying that for one second. Specter, a major Eagles fan, thinks maybe the Patriot's surprising "upset" of the St. Louis Rams and the filming of the Jets aren't the only dirty trick the Pats have up their sleve.

Alot of people here in Philly aren't entirely sure Bilichick's vaunted half-time "adjustments" are the result of his football genius. They think, in fact, he's cheated the Eagles too.
Arlen Specter tells the Inquirer, "If they were filming the walk-though in 2002 and they were stealing the signals in 2007, what happened in 2005 with the Eagles?" Good guestion.
Commissoner Goodell? No answer?

The NFL's Bush administration-like intransigence when it comes to stone walling Specter's inquiries is really getting the old man's temprature up. The League's initial reaction to Specter's public comments on the issue of the destruction of the Spygate tapes by implying one of his staffers was just PO'd because he couldn't get Super Bowl tickets was really,really dumb. Calling out a United States Senator like that is the absolute heighth of hubris. Who the hell does Roger Goodell is?

Now comes the invitation to the Senate Judiciary Committee where the Inquirer says:

"[Specter's] concerns about league conduct extend to a variety of matters, from copyright infringement to sticking taxpayers with stadium bills to monopolizing viewership of some games with the league's NFL Network.'It's part of a bigger picture,' he said. '... The league really needs some accountability, and I intend to push for it.'"

Give 'em hell Arlen and get that first round draft pick, too. Something is rotten in Denmark when a team that got caught cheating and went 18-1 gets a first round pick.

Not only are the Patriots never, never, never going to get this close to perfection again, but they've now got that "1" at the end of their season record and that little cheating "*" next to their record to live with, too.

What a crying shame.
