Marshall Faulk Not Over ‘Being Cheated Out Of The Super Bowl’ By Patriots

USATSI_8167905_154224518_lowresBack in 2002, the St. Louis Rams led by Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk went head-to-head against Tom Brady’s New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI.

With both teams on the rise at that time as arguably the two best teams in the league, the Super Bowl was highly anticipated with the Rams expected to destroy the Patriots as 14-point favorites. Warner and company were one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL and had finally gotten back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1999 with high expectations of lifting another Vince Lombardi trophy and building a dynasty in St. Louis in the process.

Ultimately, Brady emerged as a legitimate superstar by leading the Patriots over the Rams for one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history and the first title in the Bill Belichick-Brady era.

New England was able to hold off the high-powered offense of St. Louis, 20-17, but it didn’t come without a fair share of controversy.

The Patriots were accused of cheating for taping the Rams’ coaching staff sending in defensive signals during the team’s walkthrough. This scandal was later named “Spygate” and created a lot of controversy with the league’s best offense at the time only scoring 17 points in Super Bowl XXXVI.

Apparently, Faulk is still unhappy about the loss to the Patriots and still believes New England cheated to get an edge over St. Louis via Tom E. Curran of CSNNE.com:

“They misunderstand,” Faulk corrected. “Am I over the loss? Yeah, I’m over the loss. But I’ll never be over being cheated out of the Super Bowl. That’s a different story. I can understand losing a Super Bowl, that’s fine . . . But how things happened and what took place. Obviously, the commissioner gets to handle things how he wants to handle them but if they wanted us to shut up about what happened, show us the tapes. Don’t burn ‘em.”

Although the Patriots were ultimately penalized for “Spygate,” New England was cleared of any wrongdoing by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell back in 2008. Goodell claims that the tapes, which were eventually destroyed for some reason, showed exactly what the Patriots had said they would show.

Despite Faulk’s reluctance to let it go and admit the Patriots beat the Rams fair and square in Super Bowl XXXVI, the fact of the matter is New England was cleared and the end result still stands.
