MSN is reporting today that the Eagles ran a totally fake walk through running all plays they weren't doing on the day before Super Bowl. I'm glad to see that the league (although probably not the Steelers) are figuring out how to negate the cheaters.

The comment by the long snapper on this story is true. A walk-through doesn’t really do much except get you familiar with the field on which you’ll be playing.

Especially for the Super Bowl, when you’ve already had a few extra practices.

If you don’t know what you’re doing by the night before game day, you’re fucked anyway.

I was going to ask "why waste your time doing a fake walk thru"?

I also think the days of NE stealing info from a walk thru, especially in a domed stadium, are over. But one can imagine, if you did get to see a real walk thru, that in key situations you might be tipped by the formation and personnel of something you saw at the walk thru.

NE won 3 SB's by 3 points, 1 by 4 points, and another in OT....a handful of illicit micro-advantages could have been the difference in all of those. Not to mention getting there in the first place.

Someone on our staff would have left our play sheet on the field somewhere.

They expect teams to have walk-throughs, so that's why you would go to the bother.

And his pelvis is crushed...yet he is standing on the sideline in a week. What a bullshit report by Douchette. Crushed pelvis my ass. And yet no one called him on it.

I'm not sure if some coaches are naive, but the smart ones know what's up.

If the Eagles are doing this - there is stills suspicion.

That being said - the Eagles wouldn't be new to the Patriots cheating... their previous super bowl against the cheats saw an uncanny number of perfectly called screen passes to the side of an eagles blitz all game. That wasn't going to happen again - and the eagles walk through - in front of a lot of wandering people at the stadium, most certainly was noticed, memorized, and reported to Belicheck. Zero chance it wasn't.

It would be more interesting to see the NE take on this. Are any of them pointing to this being a possible issue with their loss? If so they admit to cheating.

I saw this yesterday... viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10204&start=20 making the comment even if this is 'fake news' it still has a purpose. Still keeps folks guessing. I love it. That said, I'm sure this stuff is not new as we all know most coaches are very protective even paranoid that their game plan(s) may be exposed before game. I love it. Big Huge middle finger to the cheats and the nfl.... :twisted:

Well, who can blame the Iggles?

They lost to the Pats during the height of Spygate w McNabb at the helm.

Fuck the Patriots

they only point to Malcolm Butler as the reason for the loss, as if he's deion Sanders. everyone in NE is obsessively focused on the fact that if Butler played, they would've crushed the eagles

I would almost go the other way and wonder if the Pats were paid off to take a dive.

They made so many uncharacteristic mistakes, and Mike Lombardi can say they were prepared for the Eagles’ aggressiveness until he’s blue in the face, but they were caught flat-footed the two or three times Pederson went for it on fourth down.

Which they shouldn’t have been because it’s been Pederson’s MO since he took over the Eagles.

There is no cheating or dive. The Eagles offense gave the Pats a dose of their own offense.

I know they weren’t paid to take a dive but it was an uncharacteristically bad game, decision-wise, from Belichick, in a shootout where every coaching and player decision could make a key difference.
