Atlanta Falcons Jerseys Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy spoke more recently about Deion Sanders’ accusations that the Colts stole signals, discussing what Sanders said in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times.
Dungy’s stance didn’t alter from his interview with Pro Football Talk earlier in the week as he said the Colts did nothing illegal during his coaching days and any stealing of signs was the type of thing that typically goes on in sports.
“Stealing signs? That’s just a term for looking at the other team and figuring out what they’re doing,” Dungy told the Times. “Deion, if he played corner, he stole signs, he’s listening for the other team’s audibles, looking at Peyton Manning’s hand signals to Reggie Cheap nfl Jerseys Wayne. Everybody in any sport does that. It has no connotation of illegality. Did we steal signs if we could? Yes. Did we listen to the other team’s audibles and try to figure out what they mean? Yes. Along with every other person who ever played the game.”
Sanders, who made the accusations while speaking on the NFL Network following Super Bowl 51, stood by his comments via a series of tweets earlier in the week but hasn’t elaborated on whether or not he was accusing the Colts of doing something illegal. Sanders made the comments in response to LaDanian Tomlinson saying some might view the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl success as being tainted due to Spygate, but Dungy said there was a big difference between SpyGate and trying to figure out another team’s signals.
“The Patriots’ problem Cheap jersey wholesale had nothing to do with stealing signals,” Dungy said. “Their problem and why they were fined a draft choice is they were illegally taping things, whatever they were videotaping. You can’t videotape another team’s bench from where they were shooting it.”
Did Deion just use the Colts to get a reaction? Dungy suggested that was the case.
“I think Deion said that for kind of shock value,” Dungy said. “Every team in America, including his team, including him, would do the same thing and did the same thing.
