  • Big Ben Talks About Patriots Cheating

    “In a lot of games, the offensive coordinator to quarterback headset, there’ll be — whether it’s one play, it’s static, something — it’ll go out,” Roethlisberger told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh on Tuesday morning. “It doesn’t matter if it’s at home, on the road, it just never fails. There’s almost always some kind of communication [problem]. But it’s real brief. It never lasts very long. I think the difference this time — and this is, like I said, there was no communication issues really between Coach [Todd] Haley and myself — but what I was told and what Bruce [Gradkowski] told me when he listened is that when we had the ball on offense, our coach-to-coach communication, so the guys up in the box to the guys on the sideline, were not only hearing themselves but they were hearing the radio broadcast of the game. And from what I was told from Coach Haley it was only when we had the ball. When the Patriots had the ball there was no radio broadcast.”

    “Whether we were outcoached or outplayed or they had some kind of a leg up, I always felt that they knew some of our offensive plays,” Roethlisberger said. “For whatever reason. Maybe it was better scouting or whatever. But I had always felt that. But I’m not one to sit and say, ‘Hey,’ you know, to pout about it or talk about it. I just felt that they were — they beat us on that day and maybe I was a rookie and didn’t know any better but I always felt that the knew some of the plays we were calling.”

    IF the NFL really wants to have a league that doesn't appear to be anything like the WWF they need to address this issue and ALL issues involving the Patriots and their cheating ways. Sorry, there are just way too many "coincidences" for anyone with common sense to believe that the Steelers communications were only interrupted when they had the ball on offense and when the Patriots were on offense everything was fine. MANY players and coaches have stated that it seemed as though that the Patriots knew what they were going to do on offense. I will be the first to admit that Belichick is a great coach but I don't think he is that great, where he can predict what every team in football is going to do on offense.
