"What isn't in dispute is Belichick and the Patriots — despite a Week 2 loss to the Cardinals this season — remain practically untouchable at Gillette Stadium long after Spygate was uncovered.
Including playoff games, the Patriots are 34-7 (.829) at home since Spygate was uncovered after the 2007 season opener and 77-16 (.828) since 2002, numbers that are such huge statistical outliers in the NFL's salary-cap era of parity that O'Leary says they can't be attributed just to Belichick's coaching skills and Brady's quarterbacking."
So their main argument is that the Patriots win % at home is too high? That's weak. When you've been one of the best at what you do for a long time, your numbers are going to look like an outlier. Jerry Rice's production is an outlier. LeBron James' numbers are an outlier. The Bulls winning 6 NBA championships in 8 years is an outlier. 49ers winning 18 straight road games is an outlier. Does that make them cheaters? No. It makes them the best. Haters gonna hate I guess. I don't like defending the Patriots, but that book is weaksauce.
