"Of course they do, this is the narrative on the Patriots." - Dan Shaughnessy

About a week after calling the Patriots "cheaters," Cary Williams and the Eagles share the field with the New England Patriots.

Do more people around the league feel the same way?

"Of course they do, this is the narrative on the Patriots," said Dan Shaughnessy. "When you get outside of New England here that exists. Go to Pittsburgh, there's still signage when you watch these games. It's ongoing, it never goes away. It's unfortunate because they have enough enemies already, and it gives their enemies a little bit of a weapon there."

Why do people continue to use SpyGate against the Patriots?

"There are so many people who are envious of the team because of their success, or just don't like Belichick," said Gasper. "This is the easiest thing to lob at the Patriots. What else can you really lob at them because they're so successful."
