It appears Peyton Manning left quite the lasting legacy in Indianapolis.
Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy caused a major stir Thursday when he admitted Manning used to fear the New England Patriots bugged the visiting locker room at Gillette Stadium and even would go out into the hallway to discuss play-calling.
Manning left Indy in 2011, but apparently the team still takes precautionary measures whenever it comes to Foxboro, according to WTHR.com’s Bob Kravitz. [tweet https://twitter.com/bkravitz/status/634761481582694400 align=’center’]
Kravitz, who broke Deflategate right after last season’s AFC Championship Game, added it’s likely the Colts haven’t found anything as a result of their sweeps.
Of course, that now-infamous game was held at Gillette, so if Kravitz’s report is true, the Colts spent quite a lot of time that night looking for potential instances of the Patriots cheating.
Either way, Foxboro hasn’t exactly been a desired destination for Indy. The team has won just two games in New England since Bill Belichick took over as head coach in 2000 and has lost all three of its games at Gillette since Manning went to the Denver Broncos in 2012.
