did anyone else here the crowd noise skip at one point?

it was very strange... i'm guessing it was simply the NBC audio feed but the announcers kept talking normaly, almost like the colts were pumping crowd audio in.

All that, and they still managed to lose the game.

After discussing Andy Reid's kids' issues for a little while, John Madden commented that Andy Reid is one of the "good guys" among coaches. This led to a good rant by my father:

"What makes him one of the good guys? He belittles the common man! Yeah, he'll be nice if your John Madden or the president of the team, but if I were to go up to him right now, he'd think I was an idiot for asking a question! He'd think I was insulting his intelligence! Tony Dungy's a good guy! Why would anyone consider Andy Reid a good guy? He's the opposite! He's unbelievably arrogrant and egotistical. He may be a lot of things, but he's not a good guy. What a ridiculous suggestion!"

Add dot-mp3 to the end of the link above, and you'll get what supposedly is an audio clip of the Pats-Colts game on CBS. About 20 seconds in, the crowd noise abruptly diminishes and some sort of audio glitch comes in. Meanwhile, Jim Nantz and Phil Simms are talking uninterrupted.

So what if they piped crowd noise in?

Is that any different than Belichick having the grounds crew ice down the field at Gillette Stadium before a January playoff game against the Colts?

After all, piping in crowd noise ain't quite cheating, is it?

I find it funny that Patriots fans are complaining about something like this. After all, piping in crowd noise ain't quite cheating, is it?
Are people complaining elsewhere? I ask because nobody in this thread actually complained about it. It was merely mentioned.

Fine, nobody's explicitly complained. A Pats fan did dig up the audio, so that's what touched it off in my head. I take that back.

But again, I ask how playing crowd noise to rattle the opponent is any different than Belichick's "shenanigans" (to put it VERY mildly) in recent years.

I'm pretty sure piping in crowd noise is technically illegal. I'm also pretty sure that the Colts aren't the only team doing it.

But all these sanctimonious writers who have been pitting the Colts as paragons of virtue against the evil Patriots have got another think coming.

It's no different, really. Neither would change things.

..........Poor Eagle fans. That was just depressing on so many levels.

Honestly, this game just further helped to expose how bad the Eagles really are this year. McNabb blows, the coaching staff sucks...if this season leads to an overhaul of the team next year (seriously, trade McNabb for a star receiver and get Kolb in there next year), and leads to a coaching staff that has some balls when it comes to calling plays, then I don't mind.

But the Andy Reid/Donovan McNabb combo will probably still be there next year.

Strange as this sounds, I'm actually starting to feel sorry for McChunkysoup. I couldn't stand the guy a couple years back, but I really think he could do some damage elsewhere. If it were up to me, I would do exactly what you said and trade him for a beast of a WR (Ocho Cinco is being let loose after this season, BTW). Draft some o-linemen next year and get Ron Rivera to be the badass coach you guys need. You would be greatly improved within 2 years.
