“Hey John I got 5 rings, how many you have? Oh yeah I forgot. Zero.”
“In the end, everything is brought before the light of day, when it’s all said and done,” Harbaugh said on “98 Rock” in Baltimore. “What happens, even the thing in New England, no matter whether those things had any impact on whether they won their championships or not, they got asterisks now. It’s been stained.To me, it’s never worth it. You have to figure out ways to use the rules to your advantage; you have to figure out ways to make the most of everything. We have new work rules here as far as what we can do and what we can’t do with our players, and we’re going to make the most of it. What we’re finding is, ‘Man, maybe we can do some things even better than we did before, because these rules make us focus more on some things that we didn’t focus on before.’ You just have to make them work for you. That’s what success is in the world. You have to find a way to do things better than somebody else. But if you’re cheating, in the end, you’re going to get discredited. It’s not worth it.”
Tedy Brushci jumped to the Patriots defense on ESPN with this-
“You want to take a shot, go ahead and say it. When I look down at my hand and I see championship rings, I know how much work had to be put in to win those championships. I’m very set and secure with all of the victories that we had, the work we put in. I don’t know what the Patriots organization or Coach Belichick has to do to prove how good he is as a head coach or how good those players were or how good that organization is. Coach Belichick belongs in the same breath as Vince Lombardi and coach Paul Brown, those types of coaches. That’s who he is, that’s where he belongs. The shot at Coach Belichick I don’t understand. When Coach Harbaugh was interviewing for the job in Baltimore, it was Coach Belichick that vouched for him. There’s a little bit of loyalty that Coach Harbaugh needs to learn.”
Harbaugh then “clarified” his comments-
“I have so much respect for Coach Belichick and the job he does and has accomplished in his Hall of Fame career,” he said. “I called him to remind him of my respect for him. I also reached out to Tedy Bruschi, who rightfully defended those Patriot players and coaches on ESPN, to tell him that I agree with him that the Patriots earned every victory.”
This is what I love about the Patriots and being a Patriots fan. If one person says something stupid, another Patriot jumps in to defend them. I love what Tedy Bruschi did here. Oh, you want to talk bad about the Patriots and their championships John Harbaugh? Didn’t Belichick help you get your job? Yeah I thought so. My only question is why would Harbaugh even say something like this? Is he really still that mad about the AFC Championship game? It’s not the Patriots fault that your coaching staff and kicker shit their pants when the game was on the line. No amount of tape could cause that. I don’t even really understand why some Patriots fans take offense to people talking about the Spygate thing anyway. Spygate is just used as an excuse by shitty teams to make themselves feel good by saying that the Patriots cheated. That’s fine with me. If you don’t think that your favorite team, and a majority of the league, doesn’t do it too than your ignorant. What’s you should really be worried about is that your favorite team sucks so bad that taping still doesn’t help them.
