After a Patriots employee was caught videotaping the Jets coaches signaling during Sunday's blowout in the Meadowlands, commissioner Roger Goodell is weighing the punishment for football's most stacked team. Patriots Coach Bill Belichick said he was sorry about the incident. "I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff and players," he said.
The scandal threatens to overshadow the performance of a team made ungodly powerful with big-name off season acquisitions, frets John Tomase of the Boston Herald. Former player Mike Golic is astounded by the tactics. "It’s embarrassing is what it is. At some point, my god, you just have to line up and play ball," he said.
