This is big news. No, I’m not joking. Actually, real, serious big news. Patriots coach Bill Belichick won’t wear that ugly red hoodie for Super Bowl XLVI. That article of clothing that drew the ire of fans — with many believing it was the reason the 2007 dream season ended so badly — will be kept in the closet. Or burned. A repeat of Super Bowl XLII won’t happen when it comes to his attire. Belichick’s long-time significant other, Linda Holliday, tweeted at me earlier with a message: “It’s official…no red hoodie at Superbowl XLVI!” The response was literally astounding. My Twitter feed was flooded with celebration, which probably shouldn’t have surprised me. People hate the red hoodie. So, what will he wear? That’s not clear. Better start the detective work.

Logistical preparations have begun for trip to Indianapolis

By Brian MacPhersonFor Bill Belichick, the Super Bowl is just like any other game. "I think every game is a big game," he said on a conference call Tuesday when asked about coaching in big games. "I don't know what you mean about which ones are and which ones aren't. They all are." For Belichick, then, the Super Bowl is just like any other road trip...

Belichick: The Best Coach Ever

Before we begin, I must offer full disclosure: I hate the Patriots and I hope Bill Belichick loses to the Giants and then gets embroiled in some kind of awful scandal. Now, despite all that venom, I have the utmost respect for that coldhearted scumbag, and any reasonable fan ought to as well. This will be Belichick’s fifth Super Bowl appearance as a head coach, which would leave...

Coughlin and Belichick Are Familiar Foes

We're still 10 days away from the last game of the 2011 NFL season.

Unlike that matchup...

Patriots have their first pre-Super Bowl XLVI practice… with only Gronk absent

While Lucas Oil Field is getting geeked for the Super Bowl out in Indianapolis, the Patriots are gearing up in Foxboro. They held their workout inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse, perhaps to get acclimated to playing inside. We already knew that TE Rob Gronkowski wouldn’t practice, as coach Bill Belichick disclosed that today. He’s resting that gimpy ankle, which doesn’t mean...

Ruskell Paranoia Ends

At least that’s one less thing to worry/complain about. Today’s Chicago Tribune reports that current Bears director of player personnel Tim Ruskell has been eliminated from consideration to be the next GM.

I’m already blaming Sports Illustrated again

Come on, seriously? Didn’t we go through this with the Vince Wilfork cover last year? Does Sports Illustrated hate us or something? I thought Peter King praises Bill Belichick like he is a god or something. How would he let the magazine do this to us? This is BS. I’m curling up in a ball and rocking back and forth until Super Bowl Sunday. We are only three days into all the...
