Not really, no. I think you are missing a few asterisks.
The 02 championship only happened b/ of the "tuck rule". Brady fumbled, Oakland should have had the ball, gg; the league changed the rule in the offseason to fit the call.
The Pats beat the Rams that year in the super bowl and were caught filming closed practice sessions. The were caught doing the same thing to Carolina the next year.
For the next 'championship' they paid a few guys that had been cut by the Raven's for their i-pad-stored playbooks.
2007 "spygate", filming signals from the stands.
For years they have played loose with injury reporting, and even though the NFL needs gambling ( and gambling needs reliable information on who is hurt and who isnt), a blind eye is turned to outright lying.
I will always believe John McDaniels was a plant. Kraft and Pat Bowlen are friends. Bowlen is a dope and Kraft got in his ear. The pats sent their minnion McDaniels to screw over the one franchise that consistently beat them. His first week on the job he set fire to the locker room, tried to send the QB to New England for Matt f-in Cassell, and traded away the best two players to NFC teams.
