Do the Patriots deserve an asterisk on thier record....

if they go 19-0 this season? Don Shula believes they should?

Quote:
Coaching legend Don Shula, who guided the 1972-'73 Miami Dolphins to the only unbeaten record in NFL history, says an asterisk must accompany the New England Patriots if they go 19-0 this season because of the Bill Belichick spying scandal, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

"The Spygate thing has diminished what they've accomplished. You would hate to have that attached to your accomplishments. They've got it," Shula told the Daily News. "Belichick was fined $500,000, the team was fined $250,00 and they lost a first-round draft choice. That tells you the seriousness or significance of what they found.

"I guess you got the same thing as putting an asterisk by Barry Bonds' home run record. I guess it will be noted that the Patriots were fined and a No. 1 draft choice was taken away during that year of accomplishment. The sad thing is Tom Brady looks so good, it doesn't look like he needs any help."

In the season opener, the New York Jets caught the Patriots videotaping their defensive signals. The NFL then ordered the Patriots to turn over tapes of all their previous spying in September. Commissioner Roger Goodell had the tapes destroyed after viewing them.

"You have to acknowledge what they accomplished, but I don't know how you disregard Spygate," Shula said. "It's there. It happened. You don't know what was on those tapes and how much it helped. I think the commissioner just wanted it to go away."

Shula does acknowledge that the Patriots, who are now 9-0 after rallying to win at Indianapolis on Sunday, " look so good. I think they got a real shot at doing it."
What do you guys think?

Well of course the coach of the only undefeated team in NFL history would make a comment like that.
