Eagles lost Super Bowl to Patriots pre-scandals

Eagles lost Super Bowl to Patriots pre-scandals
eagles-lost-super-bowl-to-patriots-pre-scandals


For Philadelphia Eagles fans, it remains an unanswerable question: If the New England Patriots are http://www.texansshop.us.com/Arian_Foster_Jersey habitual cheaters, as evidenced by the 2007 Spygate incident and the current imbroglio involving deflated footballs, what were they up to when they beat the Eagles in the Super Bowl 10 years ago? That came to mind while reading this story about former Carolina Panthers general manager Marty Hurney. The Panthers lost to the Patriots in the Super Bowl the year before the Eagles did (indeed, they beat the Eagles in the NFC title game to get there). That extra year hasn’t eased Hurney’s mind. "There isn't a day that goes by since that I haven't questioned ... that there were some things done that might have been beyond the rules that may have given them a three-point advantage," Hurney said on his Charlotte radio show. "This isn't about deflating balls. ... It's an issue of if there is a culture of cheating at the organization that most people look at as the gold standard in this league. Is there a culture of cheating and breaking the rules?" It’s just perfect that Hurney dropped the phrase "gold standard," given its implications in Philadelphia. Ever since Eagles owner Jeff Lurie described the Eagles as the gold standard for how to run an NFL franchise, fans have used it sarcastically whenever something goes wrong with the team. Beyond that, Lurie is friends with Patriots Jurrell Casey Youth Jersey owner Robert Kraft. Lurie grew up in Boston and was a Patriots fan and season ticket holder. He tried to buy the Patriots in the early 1990s. Kraft won the right to buy the Patriots, and Lurie moved on to purchase the Eagles in 1994. When asked about the Patriots in the wake of the 2007 spying scandal, Lurie and coach Andy Reid shrugged off any connection to the Eagles’ Super Bowl loss. They didn’t want to appear to be sore losers. Hurney faces the same dilemma. "There are people who swear to me that the Patriots taped our practice down in Houston during Super Bowl week," Hurney said. "I can't prove it. I don't know. And I hate talking like this, because I feel like a bad loser, but it just gnaws at you and this latest incident brings it back up." If there was talk the Patriots were taping http://www.nflchargersofficial.com/SUPER-BOWL-SHAREECE-WRIGHT-JERSEY the Panthers in 2004 and proof they taped the New York Jets in 2007, it stands to reason the Patriots were taping the Eagles in 2005. They won that Super Bowl, 24-21. The Patriots haven’t won a Super Bowl since. Of course, neither have the Eagles.
