Default Bill Cowher On The Patriots "Cheating"

Interviewer:

"Are the Patriots cheaters because of Spygate?"

Bill Cowher:

“You know, let me just say this: To answer your question, no, I don’t think so, it’s not an advantage for one team over another.

I just know as a head coach, you are always looking for a competitive edge. We had people out there trying to look at signals. We had guys go to games. They would tape the signal caller and also write it down. They would take it back and match up the signals with the game film and certain defenses with certain plays that were being called, particularly the defenses being called, to see if we could come up with some kind of an alert for a signal. So, what they did with videotaping the signal caller, people do it with the people in the stands!!

These people sitting there in the stands, looking at the signal, writing it down and matching up the 1st and 10 signal. OK? Then you go back again and the 2nd and 10 and here’s the signal. You do that for a whole game. You then go back and match up the defenses with the signal. And you can come up with what the signal was.

So, you don’t need a video tape with what they were talking about doing. And people were doing it. WE were doing that. Everybody does that. You’re TRYING to gain a competitive edge. There is nothing wrong with that.

That’s why baseball players go through the mirage of signals. They’ve got all these different codes. That’s part of the competitive spirit of the game. I think it’s totally overblown. I think if you get caught (signals compromised), then do what we did and go to wristbands, if you are worried about it. We started putting defenses on wristbands. Then you find a way to not get caught (signals compromised). When your good at something and people try steal from ya, I think it’s flattering.”

Patriots haters and Brady haters take another gigantic L...

Stop spamming. People are going to think you are 1 angry and bitter guy.

Giants defeated the evil empire after they got caught cheating in spygate, hopefully Falcons do the same.

I remember in varsity football we would watch game tape of our upcoming opponent and we'd try to predict what plays they would run in the games based on what we saw in the tape.
