Investigation into Denver Taping 49ers Walkthrough

ESPN Reports the NFL is investigating whether a Denver employee taped a 49ers walk-through while the teams were in London.

The following is an article from the National Football Post:

Is this the new Spygate scandal?

The Denver Broncos are under investigation by the NFL, which is looking into if Broncos director of video operations Steve Scarnecchia videotaped the San Francisco 49ers walkthrough practice at Wembley Stadium in London last month.

IBroncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis confirmed to the Denver Post that Scarnecchia is on a "personal leave of absence" while the league loks into the situation.

Scarnecchia hasn't been traveling with the team or at work lately. He declined to comment.

Yes, Broncos coach Josh McDaniels and Scarnecchia are former New England Patriots employees.

It was determined by the NFL that the Patriots videotaped New York Jets signals, a violation of league rules.

The Patriots lost a first-round draft pick, fined the team $250,000 and Bill Belichick $500,000.

"That situation was something that happened," McDaniels said when he was hired of Spygate. "I was not aware of that. I wasn't aware of it and all the things that did happen in terms of that whole scenario. It really didn't affect us, to tell you the truth. It was all about preparation and trying to do whatever we felt was best that week. It really didn't have anything to do with that.

"I don't think it is good. To have that kind of attention was a distraction, and I think that is how we all treated it. We tried to do the best we could to limit those distractions every week, and it will be no different here. Certainly we are never looking to do anything that is not within the rules established by the National Football League. They determined the punishment on that, and it was what it was and we moved on."

UPDATE: The Broncos and Coach McDaniels have each been fined $50,000 by the NFL.

lol...and they still lost.
Ha! No wonder they lost! They thought they knew what the Niners were going to do when Singletary doesn't even know what they are doing. A good example of a bad team over preparing for what every other team (and fan) knows is in the Niners playbook. It's like learning the box step to dance.

Broncos first round draft pick please
I saw this on ESPN this morning. What a retard if they did it. 2007 should have been a lesson.

What an idiot! Everyone knows what the 9ers are going to do anyway, you don't have to film it!
Maybe Denver thought Sing was gonna whip out the foreign country playbook.
I guess they wanted to learn the secrets of the 49ers most lethal play. Andy Lee's punts.

For beating them?!!

Patriots legacy just goes on...
They filmed our plays and still lost? Pathetic!

This might get McDaniels canned. He's really sunk that team.
