NE Patriots thwart eavesdropping rumors

Foxboro, MA -- The Miami Dolphins claim they had an edge in last week’s victory over the Patriots because they acquired game film that included audio of Tom Brady making calls at the line of scrimmage.

Brady responded Wednesday with another soundbite aimed directly at the eavesdropping Dolphins.

"I think that’s a big crock of you-know-what," Brady said. "I’m sure if you asked them, it probably sounds good for them to say they have it all figured out, but they’re 6-7 and we’re 9-4.

"Go tell me who probably has it more figured out."

The report surfaced Monday in the aftermath of Miami’s 21-0 win. Two players told the Palm Beach Post that they purchased the video including Brady’s audio, but Dolphins head coach Nick Saban said the team only used film from network feeds. (more)
