Antonio Smith believes the Patriots did something 'fishy'

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

Time to get out the duckbill hat and magnifying glass, because something's afoot -- right, Antonio Smith?

More than five years have passed since "spygate," but some people can't let it go. Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith remains a stalwart "spygate truther" and is determined to get to the bottom of some funny business.

There's no logical reason any team should be able to derail a defense allowing 290 yards per game, right? The Patriots gained a total of 453 yards. Something is fishy.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Antonio. This was clearly not an issue of being outcoached and outplayed; it was some sort of tomfoolery by the Patriots. There's no possible way New England could have known Houston's defense couldn't cover Rob Gronkowski and needed to feed him all day -- that's simply not possible.

Wait a second. This game was played in Houston. The conspiracy goes deeper than we thought. This is an inside job. Only one man could have given the keys to the Patriots to set up their cameras to work out these new defensive wrinkles, and only one player fits the bill.
