    This Walsh fellow has not spoken out because he had been told by his attorney that the NFL or the Patriots could come after him for possession of stolen property, breach of contract (if he had a speak-no-evil clause in his contract) etc...

    The NFL is saying that they will insure against any “losses” he may incur as a result of his blowing the whistle on the Patriots.

    No, not a Giants fan. But yes, like 98% of the country, I was pulling for the Giants Sunday night. I am a football fan. My dog isn't involved at all in this fight. But I do want to see cheaters and rule breakers caught and punished no matter who they are. If I wanted cheaters, rule violaters and sinister scheming I'll turn on professional wrestling. You may say you're okay with all that crap but you'd only be lying to yourself. You seek to deny any wrong-doing or excuse the Patriots behavior because it's your team. That doesn't make it right. That just means you can be bought.

    BTW, you asked about Specter's involvement. Here's a link to explain some issues involved. Keep in mind, The NFL went to Congress first when they relied heavily on Congress getting involved with the anti-trust exemption to stabilize the TV market and in so doing, they saved more than a few franchise markets. My personal belief is that Roger Goodell is a crook and if it takes somebody like Specter to do Roger's job then those of us who care about integrity in the sport are much better off.

    You can justify it any way you want, but either way, you are ignorant and dead wrong. Belichick was caught red-handed doing the illegal taping that he was specifically warned against doing by the commissioner of the league. Everybody else has not been caught. If and when others are caught, I hope they are punished even more severely and the fines and punishment increase until it is no longer worth the risk. But attempting to justify Belichick's cheating by saying that everybody does it, is mind-numbed response by an unenlightened homer attempting to blow smoke up the @$$e$ of anybody that will listen for the sake of being able to beat their own chests and revel in their team's victory. It's a game. Unfortunately, the money involved brings out the worst in participants and the fans as well. No where is that more apparent than in Boston.

    The NFL was on to Belichick in 2006 but said they could not catch him and they simply bided their time and waited for him to set up his camera guy again. And now this Walsh fellow is implying that he has evidence dating back even further that will embarrass both the Patriots AND the NFL. Leads me to believe that the game against the Jets and Mangini, who had first-hand knowledge of the cheating, forced Roger Goodell's hand. If Matt Walsh fears retribution by the NFL and the Patriots for being a whistleblower than I would welcome a investigation by Specter, or whoever has the power to grant immunity from lawsuits, charges or prosecution, provided, of course, that Matt Walsh has the hard facts, tapes, etc. that he has implied to ESPN. If he does not possess hard facts than he needs to go away. Specter is correct in the fact that a more thorough investigation is justified because, IMHO, exactly none of Roger Goodell's statements regarding the evidence and the punishments have made a lick of sense.

    Thanks for playing though, try again next year.

    "W/E. Specter needs to keep his mind on his job. His job is not being a referee for the NFL or any other pro sports organization. His job is clearly defined by the constitution, which does not mention anything about policing pro sports."

    Attempting to cast doubts on Specter's involvement is just a poor attempt to keep any facts from emerging. So you don't want to know that your coach and team are cheaters and you will do or say anything to smear the messenger, I understand that. I don't agree with it, but I understand your frustration after having your hearts ripped out last night. But covering up your ears and screaming doesn't change things.

    If the truth comes out and absolutely proves that no illegal taping took place at any time during the Belichick era than I would think you would welcome a more thorough investigation because, I don't know whether you noticed it or not but, if you check the various forums (be it SI or ESPN)? Everybody outside of Massachusetts believes the team and coach are tarnished way beyond repair. The Patriots, in fact, may never live it down until Belichick retires and just goes away.

    "And yet there they were playing in the AFC Championship game last season, one of only four teams left standing."

    They were trending down and were the most vulnerable of those teams. If you didn't realize that, you weren't paying attention. If you think that's ridiculous, that's fine. But I have a couple of Boston-grown self-proclaimed "greatest Patriots* fans ever" right in my office who agree that if the Patriots* hadn't picked up those two key players they would never have enjoyed the success they have this season and they were at best, one and done in this year's play-offs. Like I said, I'll stand by my comments.

    "You said Wes Welker sold his soul, then said maybe he didn't know the team had cheated prior to signing. That is the complete opposite of your initial statement about the man."

    Read again. I allowed for the possibility that he was not aware of what he was getting into though I, myself, am quite skeptical. Either way you look at it, he, along with the other players on the team, knew what they had when they started training camp and they decided then that cheating and a Super Bowl championship were more important than their integrity and the integrity of the game. And THAT, like it or not, is selling your soul.

    I am not at all embarrassed by my position and I firmly stand by my statements. Try and justify it all you want. Bottom line is that you win as a team, you lose as a team and you cheat as a team. You can't pick one or two guys out of the team and say okay, this guy isn't a cheater because he went to my favorite college or he's a hometown hero and he sure had a hard time making it to the big time and besides, he's awfully cute... but his team and his coach sure cheated! Talk about saying one thing and then saying the opposite. You may be able to justify cheating because of some personal feelings toward an individual involved but it's still cheating.

    "And assuming that I am defending Belichick(sp) is your final gaffe. Please show me once where I defended him?"

    Show me once where I assumed that you were defending Belichick.

    In addition to being a now big-time football star, Welker is also a grown man and he has the power to make his own decisions both before AND after the scandal was known to the public. He, along with the rest of the team knew what was happening before they were caught. With this particular coach and organization, glory comes at a cost of the collective integrity of the team as well as the individual integrity of each man (selling your soul). You win as a team, you lose as a team. But you are still a member of that team for good or bad.

    After they were caught? Not only did he or any other player speak out or distancing themselves from their cheating leader but they, as a team, decided to stick it in everybody's face by rallying around and blindly defending their coach. Sounds like a certain former President and his Democratic Congress. To a man, each individual member of that team lost their integrity and any due respect. Welker decided that his glorious opportunity was much more important to him than his own integrity or the integrity of the game.

    Crude childish comments aside, yours was a nice try but you were the one lumping all the years together and when that's the case, I agree with you (as long as the asterisk is firmly in place). But I was taking each year individually to determine who are the best teams for that particular season.

    That point, which you apparently missed, was to point out that the Patriots* were not the Super Bowl quality team that they had hoped to be in 2006 so they identified where they needed help and they went out and found that help. Last year's team was missing a cylinder. Welker and Moss were the solution and the Patriots* should get credit for finding a relatively obscure player in Welker and giving him the opportunity to show what he is capable of doing. That is not saying that Welker was not a good player, he is very good. But the Patriots* payed him what he was worth to them at that point in time. Welker, through hard work and determination, proved that he's worth that and a whole lot more.

    Unfortunately for him, he's still part of a team that was caught cheating and to have supposed conservatives and people of such supposedly high moral standards on this site railing against the Democrats and the Clintons yet defending Belichick* and his team is pretty sad and quite ironic.

    "If that doesn't constitute one of the best teams in football, I don't know what does."

    As has been suggested by more than a few NFL pundits. The 2006 Patriots* would not have beaten the Chargers in this year's AFC Championship game. The 2006 Patriots* would never have gone undefeated this year. They were starting to slide backward. They were not the quality team that they had been in the past. They needed help last year. Keep in mind, this year, despite all the injuries and despite Norv Turner, the Chargers were still in the game against this year's "greatest team ever".

    Last year, when things needed fixing, they had to go find some players and they were fortunate enough to get two very good deals on players who were flying somewhat under the radar. Moss was not really "under" the radar but was considered a locker room pariah and not too many teams were willing to take that gamble and Welker was a relative unknown who fit perfectly into their offensive scheme. The difference between starting to slide out of contention last year and their success this year was the acquisition of Welker and Moss.

    "The Patriots won their division in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006."

    LOL! But the biggest laugh of the day is that you think that winning the AFC East is an accomplishment?! HAH! That's a given every year, look at the rest of the division. Buffalo, the Jets and Miami... They start the season off with 6 wins in their pocket.

    "They won the conference and Super Bowl in 2001, 2003 and 2004. If that doesn't constitute one of the best teams in football, I don't know what does."

    Now, also by trying to understand your reasoning, we're obviously taking it to the extreme, but the Patriots*, you say, were still one of the best teams in the NFL in the 2002 season (they didn't even make the playoffs) because they won the Super Bowl in both 2001 and 2003?!

    The point being that even the Patriots* know that they can't relax on past success. They have to identify their weaknesses and fix them year in and year out. Last year they were not one of the best teams, this year they are the best so far.

    He IS an awesome player. But he hadn't proven himself or reached his potential until he got to the Patriots*. In fact, he may be still climbing. But at the time, the Patriots* offered him what they thought he was worth to them financially.

    I also allowed for him maybe not knowing what he was getting himself into but I had reservations about whether he really was oblivious due to the fact that many teams around the league, as it has come out, were aware of what the Patriots* were up to and Welker is far from being a total idiot.

    He wanted the best opportunity for a Championship as does everybody. Whether he was aware before he signed the dotted line or not, he went to a team that was caught cheating. He is now a member of a team that will be known for cheating. You win as a team and you lose as a team.

    I pointed out the fact that the Patriots* lost in the last two playoffs and that Welker was one of the keys to their success this season. That doesn't mean the Patriots* were not cheating in those past two seasons. You are incredibly naive to think that the act of cheating will gaurantee a win. You still need to field a quality team and they still need to strap on the pads.

    I never said that Wes Welker wasn't an awesome player. I could have been more definitive in that statement. Welker wasn't worth a good deal of money (meaning the Patriots* could get him for a song) because he hadn't blossomed as the star that he is now due to the fact that the Dolphins don't have the offense or the QB that could get the ball to him. The league is full of incredibly talented atheletes who never reach their potential because they are not supported by highly talented teammates and coaches. Of course, their teams weren't picking up the other team's signals illegally either... And yes, I believe the Patriots* are still cheating. The NFL has already proven to them that they won't take away the wins and that leaves no incentive to play it straight. Belichick* gets payed to win football games, period. The heck with draft choices and cash, those things you can work around. Until they start taking wins away, the cheating will continue. The same could be said in any sport. (Thinking NASCAR here)

    And, by the way, the Patriots* were not one of the best teams in the league before Welker's arrival. They lost in the playoffs the last two seasons and they went out and found Welker and Moss. Two of the three main keys to their ultimate success this season.

    Welker is certainly worth a whole lot more than he was when the Patriots* picked him up. Credit that to the Patriots* fitting him into an offensive scheme that best utilizes his talents.

    Unfortunately for him, he landed in a now heavily tainted organization that puts winning above the rules of the game. Welker, I'm sure wasn't aware of the cheating that was going on last year before he joined the team (although there were quite a few teams who were suspicious and according to what I have seen and read, it does go back beyond last year such that even Charlie Weis could share a little insight into the matter. And that, BTW, is highly disappointing to this long-time Notre Dame football fan) but Welker AND Moss did have a good idea what was going on from the moment they picked up their playbooks and into the start of the year. That is guaranteed.

    I played the game myself and as an offensive starter, if you have half a brain, you would know something was up. Everybody has a role to play. They may not know what everybody else's role is in the scheme but they have their own role. To believe otherwise is to believe that Wes Welker is a total idiot and was totally oblivious to what was going on around him. I give Welker a little more credit than that. Hell, even the kicker knows what they are doing. He's there, he starts questioning how they can call the perfect play in any situation, how they "seem" to know every single time the blitz is coming, etc... The sports press and Patriots* fans tries to sell the line that it's just coaches that were involved and the players are completely oblivious and that is complete an utter nonsense.

    As for the records? The kicking and returning kicks "record" speaks to his abilities as an athelete. His job on the field was to return kicks, that's a given. He fell into the kicking duties in a game where their kicker was not available and he was able to step in and perform. That's awesome! That's something he can tell his grandkids about. But that's not a "record" as much as it is a "feat". Players are not actively trying to break that "record". A team does not draft a kicker/kick returner. The fact that Welker had a Dolphin record for returning kickoffs speaks well about his durability because the Dolphins were receiving an awful lot of kickoffs. I'll spell it out for you: The Dolphins have been the worst they have ever been the past few seasons and they were giving up a lot more touchdowns and field goals than they ever have. And what do they do after they give up a touchdown or field goal? The other team kicks the ball off to them! You see how that works?

    And as for Welker's shared receiving record. That was this season, after the Patriots* picked him up at a bargain basement price. Now, the trick is to re-sign Welker. That contract will definitely prove to be a lot more costly to the Patriots* this time around.

    Try applying some common sense and get back to me. There is a reason, despite all those Dolphin records and superlatives, that the rest of the league was not beating down the door of a then-career special teamer and the Patriots got him for a song.

    Here's a hint: It has to do with the Dolphins win/loss record the past few years? And the fact that they were on the receiving end of the kick-offs a lot more than the kicking end? Think it over.

    "If his agent was shopping him around, he did it very clandestinely so as to not even be mentioned. He didn't even get Welker a very good deal. Welker needs a new agent."

    Welker wasn't worth a "good deal" at the time. He was small time and wanted out of Miami, the Patriots got him at a bargain. Moss was also a relative bargain because of his history.

    But thanks for making my point. It's also proof-positive (be it Welker, Moss or Brady for that matter) that the 1st round draft choice penalty for cheating leveled against the Pats was a joke.
