Open Letter to Patriots Fans By : Staff Reporting

Dear Pats Fans,

The NFL has given your team, the beloved Pat's every advantage to elevate mediocrity. Brady was a 6th round quarterback with minimum athletic skills except dropping back and passing the ball or in some cases simply standing and passing the ball.

With the NFL enacting rules that stringently protects the QB it has made players like Edelman, Woodhead, Kevin Faulk along with Brady appear to be first round Hall selections at times. Winning armed with the league bolstering your teams success wasn't enough...first there was spygate now this.

I'm not caught up in the wins and loses of the Pats, because FACTS clearly indicate that a Brady should not be mentioned under the same breath of a Montana or Bradshaw. QBs like Roger Starbaugh, a true athlete, risked life and limb to become great...he would had 7 Superbowl wins under existing rules.

The NFL deflated the true essence of the game of Football to make it marketable and the Pats took their GREED to an entirely new level. There's a dark cloud sitting over the Patriot organization and that cloud will sit there until there's a completely new team built with new personnel. Belichick Hall selection should be halted.

Bill Belichick should walk away from this sport in disgrace, because he has been obsessed with winning by any means necessary. Pete Rose actions were nothing compared to Belichick's. The NFL can't placate this like Spygate. The days of them burning and sweeping the evidence under the rug are over. Full disclosure Goodell or this league will be tarnished forever. Recent history clearly suggests you're incapable of handling a scandal of this magnitude, but we'll see.
