Some members of the 2001 Rams, most notably Marshall Faulk, have spent years saying the Patriots cheated against them in Super Bowl XXXVI.
London Fletcher is not one of those players.
In an interview with Toucher and Rich on Radio Row, the former Rams linebacker made it clear that he doesn’t believe the Patriots won the game due to any shady dealings.
“The way I look at it…I just don’t think we played our best football game. The Patriots outplayed us that day. If we played the Patriots, that team, 10 times, they only beat us once. Unfortunately, it was in that Super Bowl…We had more talent on our football team, that’s why we were 14-point favorites,” Fletcher said.
“I don’t talk ‘hey, we got cheated out of a Super Bowl.’ They outplayed us,” Fletcher said.
Faulk has repeatedly accused the Patriots of filming the Rams walkthrough the night before Super Bowl XXXVI. The Boston Herald issued an erroneous report in 2008 that the Patriots filmed the session.
The Herald later retracted that report and issued an apology to the Patriots, but that hasn’t stopped Faulk from passing the accusations off as fact.
