Indianapolis Colts’ Offensive Coordinator References Spygate?

Ever since the whole ‘Spygate’ issue arose in 2007, a lot of teams facing the Patriots have brought it up in the week preceding the game (or in Antonio Smith’s case, after the game). I honestly never understood why they do this, because making Tom Brady and Bill Belichick mad, is one of the worst things you can do, if you are set to play them that week.

As the Colts and Pats get ready to do battle this Saturday, Pep Hamilton, the Colts offensive coordinator, seems to have brought this issue up yet again. Here are his exact words from earlier today.

“I do know for a fact that it was always a 60-minute chess match, it was ever-changing looks and disguises and they always tend to find ways to figure out some of your signals.”

In my opinion, that sounds like a pretty blatant reference to Spygate, and as I just mentioned, providing the Patriots with bulletin board material before a playoff game, is not a good idea, especially when you have to travel to Foxboro. Hopefully this lights a fire underneath New England, because they will need to give it their all in this game, if they wish to advance to the AFC Championship.

    What a moron. BB and the defense now have great motivation to shut the Colts down.

    Grasping for straws are we? Don’t worry, Branch already smuggled in a bootleg copy of BB’s playbook. Gisele gave it to him after his last sleepover.
