    Didn't deserve it, IMO. Shoulda gone to Mike McCarthy.

    I'd get a 1600 on my SAT if I got the answers before the test.

    Also stained the reputation of the league by cheating and thinking nothing of it. I guess its the same as awarding Shawne Merriman with Pro Bowls.

    The same reason why the Pats forfeited a first round pick.

    I think they split up the English part.

    It's not cheating until you get caught. He got caught. Bottom line, he's a cheater, and that will be part of his legacy, like it or not.

    Of course. After all, we all know that the New England Patriots would have been ultimately incapable of out playing the mighty New York Jets had it not been for some aquired information regarding defensive hand signals! How else could they have possibly rolled over the mighty AFC East. Even if they were, by some act of god capable of sweeping the Jets, there would certainly be no chance in hell that they could over come the Dolphins and Bills twice in one season. Cheating is obviously the reason for their success this season!

    Wow. I had no idea. I was wondering why kids were looking at me like I was an ***** for getting a 1430 back in the day.

    That's like a 2120 now.

    They went 16-0 in spite of intense league and media scrutiny from week 1. They got caught doing what every team does, and they fessed up and took the punishment like men. They still had to go out week to week and beat these teams.

    I don't see how this "stains the league", either. Ratings are at all time highs, so apparently, just like 'roids in MLB, nobody gives a crap.

    I think its okay that he was named coach of the year. 16-0 is super tough, no matter how you slice it. I still don't like the guy though.

    He was caught cheating in the first half of the first game and then had to destroy all tapes. If anything, this is the cleanest season the Patriots have had since Belicheck has been coach.

    not to me it won't, because i don't worry about such nonsense.

    when everyone does it and gameplans for it and around the other teams doing it, it's just like any other part of the game you prepare for.

    Caught stealing signals? Psshhhtt! That's nothing. You guys don't even know that...

    ... Tom Brady is actually a highly sophisticated robot.

    ... Belichick has a "24"-like bunker with Chloe and Jack watching surveillance films of their opponents' practices.

    ... Bob Kraft has these photos... well, let's just say they involve Roger Goodell, a goat, and 37 shots of Jagermeister.

    ... Jesus loves the Patriots and Divinely Intervenes at least twice per quarter.

    Just the tip of the iceberg, people. I'm starting a T-shirt company called "Kiss My Asterisk."

    i'm guessing the Patriots would be picking #1 overall if they didn't have those signals for the Jets the first game of the season. which every team does. remember Miami last year recording all of Brady's signals before last year's 21-0 game? seems pretty much exactly the same to me, no one seemed to care about that though.

    every team does it. it's not cheating. it's strategy. period.
