Weird how there's so much coming out from other teams and players that it's a "known" thing the Pats are dirty cheaters and it took an ex-employee to bust them years later. Bigger story if Brady can hold on to Gisele after they're losing.....

Well, he probably had a real good idea of what was going on, while other teams only suspected.  Mangini knew what to look for, and probably took great delight in sticking it to Bellicheat the first chance he got after the way the asshole treated him.
Except for the fact that Mangini could have done it last year. Unless Belichek wasn't trying it in any of the three games against the Jets last year. Of course, then you have to wonder why he would have been doing it for this game.

thats simple...pressure.  first game of the season, division rival, heavy players in the FA market during the offseason, havent won a super bowl in 2 years.  BB was/is determined to win it all again this year.  And im sure he hates Mangini with a passion.

How badly will the loss of a first round pick really hurt, after all, dont they have San Fran's first round pick in addition to their own?  By making the playoffs, it is not like they will not have a pick until late round 2, instead, they would still have a first rounder (most likely higher than what theirs was) plus their regular picks from round 2 on.

If they were to miss the playoffs, they loose their 2 and 3 round picks.  Again, they have 2 first rounders.  They would be able to either use both picks in the first, or trade one for additional spots, such as a late round 1 and a 3, or a round 2 and 3, or some combination.

Basically, it really does not hit them like it would other teams and is not as severe as it sounds.

My opinion anyways.
