Surprise, surprise....

It turns out that the Patriots aren't the only ones who "tried" to steal signals. In a not so surprising revelation, Steelers former head coach Bill Cowher admits that they tried to steal signals from apposing teams, stating that it is "part of the game"

“The only thing they got caught (was) doing it with a camera, we had people that always tried to steal signals. Stealing someone’s signals was a part of the game, and everyone attempted to do that.”

Helmet to Helmet reports that the Steelers used wristbands to hear verbal communications between players on the opposing teams. Cowher also addressed the 2004 AFC championship game against the Patriots.

“[It] isn’t even an element anymore because of the communications that take place on the field to the quarterback, to the linebacker. So it’s an element of the game that doesn’t exist and, really, what happened when we lost that game is they outplayed us, and it had nothing to do with stealing signals or cheating or anything else. They were a better football team on that day.”

“We didn’t lose the game because of any Spygate, because of them having any additional things,” Cowher said. “I think if they’re guilty of anything, they’re guilty of arrogance because they were told not to do something. But it was something that everybody does.”

Yet, people still make a huge deal about the Patriots supposed actions during spy gate, and yet, teams from all over are doing it. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if the Broncos have a part in a spy gate of their own.
