    It isn't an oversight.
    The higher pick is San Fran's pick, not the Patriots.
    On draft day 2007, the Patriots traded the 28th selection in the draft to the 49ers who selected OT Joe Staley. In return, the Patriots g0t the 49ers fourth round pick this year and San Francisco’s first round pick in 2008.
    The trade and spygate had nothing to do with each other.

    Besides, you could not know for certain that the pick they got from San Fran would have been better.
    It was definetly no mistake, in fact if the patriots had done poorly and not made the playoffs then they would of had to give up there 2nd and 3rd instead of the first.

    Re: Patriot Food for Thought

    Did you guys hear Howie Long trying to explain his comments on a radio interview (last night on ESPN or NFL Live) that all teams have done this in the past?

    He aluded to another discussion/comment that Jimmy Johnson made that might mean they (other teams) have done even worse.

    They also say that all Presidential candidates spied on their opponents, but only Nixon got caught. To say "everybody does it, so it's OK" is asinine.

    And I have no doubt that other teams, e.g. the Cowboys, have done much worse and never paid for it.
