Spygate Lives on a Little Longer: Jets Assistant to Meet With NFL

    Roger Goodell's meeting with Matt Walsh yesterday and the revelation that no tape existed of a pre-Super Bowl XXXVI walkthrough were hailed as the final nails in the coffin of Spygate. They shouldn't start heaping dirt on the grace just yet, though, because the NFL's still scheduling interviews into the matter.

    Brian Daboll, quarterback coach for the Jets and former Patriots assistant, will head into league offices for a second meeting. Walsh, after admitting he watched the walkthrough while wearing Patriots garb and setting up equipment, said Daboll grilled him about the plays and formations employed by the Rams.

    Walsh told Daboll he noticed that star running back Marshall Faulk was returning kickoffs, league attorney Gregg Levy said. (Faulk did, in fact, return one kickoff in the game.) Daboll also asked Walsh about the Rams' offensive formations, particularly the role of the tight end, according to Levy, who said the Walsh-Daboll conversation lasted less than 10 minutes.

    There's something that just isn't adding up here. If, as Goodell said yesterday, nothing untoward happened in the Superdome, why continue to pursue the matter?

    Goodell's comments indicate that he believes Walsh was telling the truth, hence no need for further sanctions, so what information are they looking for from Daboll? The biggest questions to answer now, it would seem, are why the Rams let a guy wearing Patriot duds watch their practice and, assuming they noticed, why they would run plays that were anything but decoys?
