Falcons' Joe Horn goes on a Patriots riff

So, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Joe Horn says the reason the Patriots are going crazy blowing teams out is because of the cheating business earlier in the year. Horn doesn't blame the players but in the famous words of the locker room these day (all together now) ... it ... is ... what ... it ... is.

Here's a transcript of on FOX GameTime Live Wednesday.

I'm not trying to downgrade Tom Brady, he's a cool dude. Randy, cool brother, that's my dog. Since they were caught cheating and everybody said that's what they needed and the Super Bowl should have been taken back because it was tainted, and they were found cheating, and their coach should have gotten suspended, like everyone else gets suspended, but he wasn't, they're pissed off.

They're upset and they're saying, hey, we didn't need the videotapes to kick ya'll's butt, to kick everybody's butt and blow them out. And we're going to show you that now. We're going to kill teams and, we're going to beat them by 50 or 60 points just to show you that we could have did that regardless whether we got caught cheating or not. It's not Randy's fault. It's not Tom Brady's fault…I'm not blaming none of the players. You were caught cheating, so that's what you're going to retire with. That's what you're going to be known for in the Super Bowls that you won. Regardless, you were cheating, and you won those Super Bowls.

Don't get mad now and try to score 70 or 80 points on teams when you could have did it when you weren't cheating. So, I'm not trying to dog anybody but, it is what it is. They've got a great football team and I think personally they could go 19-0. But the fact is, at the end of the day, when you hang your retirement up, all you're going to be left with, besides your name, yeah, those three Super Bowls were great, but you were kind of cheating in knowing what the defenses were calling over there. They're a little upset right now so it's a way of them feeling better about themselves showing people they don't have to cheat and they still can beat people by 70 now.
