Steve Spagnuolo (former Eagles’ linebackers coach) joined Philadelphia Radio 97.5 the Fanatic on Monday and he couldn’t wait to let out all the salty tears and sour grapes. I mean we all should understand he was holding these tears for so long. Someone should had stood behind him and chanted “Fly Tears Fly…” while he was weeping and giving his interview because my God these tears were forming a puddle under him. Talk about a sore loser who can’t move on. Fourteen years and he’s still thinking about it. On the radio interview, he said he’s pretty confident the Patriots cheated in Super Bowl 39 and had intel on what the Eagles defense was doing in Superbowl 39. In other words, taping their signals.
“We believe that Tom Brady knew we were pressuring him because he certainly got the ball out pretty quick” Spagnuolo said.
Is it really news that Brady throws the ball quick? Brady has been throwing the football consistently “pretty quick” his entire career and he’s getting faster and better at it Mr. Spagnuolo, have you thought about that during your soliloquy? Not only Brady throws the ball quick but also he reads blitzes and defenses better than any other QB this league has ever seen.
He continued “I remember through the course of the game Jim [Johnson] saying, ‘They’re getting our signals. They know when we’re blitzing … try to hide it, I remember distinctly thinking, ‘I don’t think so Jim, just concentrate on calling the game.’” but now he thinks Johnson back then was correct. The Patriots were cheating.
It was not cheating Spagnuolo, every team was filming and the Patriots did what every other team was doing. The only difference is the Patriots were the only team that got punished and made example out of. The Jets were caught filming from the same location but never got punished. Just like deflategate, the biggest witch hunt in Football history, many QBs have admitted they like their footballs a certain way. Aaron Rodgers said he over inflates them. Jeff Blake said he deflates them. But only Brady got punished for something he never did and never said.
Despite the repeated punishments and witch hunts by the league and the haters have the audacity to say the NFL rigs games for the Patriots. How? Haters can’t just admit the Patriots are better than everyone else. If we win Super Bowl 52, it’s guaranteed they will make up something. Just wait for it because the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play… Mr. Spagnuolo needs to move on. News flash, it’s 2018.
