Found November 27, 2013 on Sports-Glory:

According to the Boston Herald, before throwing a six-yard touchdown pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady called out “Cougar! Cougar! Linda!” at the line of scrimmage. The audible could be a reference to coach Bill Belichick’s longtime girlfriend, Linda Holliday. “Well, since it was obviously a good call and a well-executed play, I’ll take a tiny bit of credit — but only for a well-named play,” Linda told the Track. “Seriously, the whole team played hard and we all couldn’t be happier, right?!?” Brady was asked about his audibles on WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” show Monday. “We’ve got a lot of calls at the line of scrimmage, some are protection calls, some are calls where we’re directing guys, we got run calls, we got pass calls, we got protection calls, we got dummy calls, so you don’t get locked into one or two things … we ended up using them all,” Brady said.

What to make of the New England backfield in light of Stevan Ridley’s ball security issues (and more including our Week 12 Review video)

Harmon playing entire game rewards Belichick's approach with rookies

When we all last saw the New England Patriots try to patch together a secondary, coach Bill Belichick utilized free agent rookies and journeymen, along with duct tape and some measure of smoke and mirrors.He had to.  There was no accumulated depth on the roster, so when injuries decimated the secondary, Belichick had to get creative and get on the phone to get some of his contacts...

Bill Belichick’s Decision to Take Wind in Overtime Stemmed From Bill Parcells, Won’t Say It’s Always ‘Right Decision’

A lot of factors went into Bill Belichick‘s controversial decision to take the wind to start overtime on Sunday night, but, in the end, it was nothing more than simple strategy.
