The Patriots Are Without a Doubt Hypocrites for Filing Tampering Charges Against Texans

It seems like the Patriots just aren't held to the same standard as the rest of the NFL.

New England has hypocritically filed tampering charges against the Houston Texans for their attempt to hire Nick Caserio, because of course they did.

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.

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.
