For Patriots, Spygate Is Ancient History

Will ShepherdContributor IDecember 29, 2008

Spygate seems so long ago now. 29-6 is where the Patriots stand since Spygate first broke. This was achieved by two different quarterbacks, one of whom had thrown 32 total passes since high school, and about a million different defensive players.

Imagine the Jets playing spoiler to the Patriots' playoff dreams in '09. Join a club where the only other member joined 23 years ago because you went 11-5 and couldn't get a playoff spot. Could you conceive of a team going undefeated just to lose in the Super Bowl? What would happen if your Hall of Fame-bound QB was out for the entire season?

We paid for it. However, there is no denying that we're still here at the top, and we'll still be here for a long, long time.

Cameras be damned.
