It seems like the Patriots just aren't held to the same standard as the rest of the NFL.
Good time to remind everyone that the Patriots' current offensive coordinator formally agreed to coach another team last year, then ended up back in New England anyway. https://t.co/YOTmVNsBCZ— 12up (@12upSport) June 12, 2019
Remember just a year ago when their offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, literally agreed to become the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts only to spurn them and return to the Patriots? The NFL didn't even bat an eye.
It's borderline comical that the Patriots have the audacity to file tampering charges against the Texans when they were all but guilty of it themselves last year -- and let's not forget about the countless infractions they've committed ever since their dynasty began.
And yet, none of this is surprising. The Patriots constantly twist and bend the rules to their advantage. If anything, this is normal for them.
Evidence of potential tampering come from photos, videos, other proof of interactions between Texans exec @JackEasterby and Caserio at last Thursday's Patriots ring ceremony, which happened the night before the Houston G.M. job became vacant.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) June 12, 2019
None of this is to say that the Patriots are totally in the wrong for filing the charges, it's just absurd that they can get away with it themselves only to turn around and cry foul when it happens to them.
Maybe the NFL should take a look back at last year while they're investigating the Texans.
