NFL Network debuted it’s Super Bowl version of “Sound FX” Wednesday night. The behind-the-scenes series gives fans a deeper look into the games by playing never-before-heard soundbites by players, coaches, officials, etc. Wednesday’s airing did not disappoint, letting viewers in on what those close to the action were thinking during some of the Super Bowl’s most crucial moments.

There was also this fascinating nugget from Darth Hoodie himself, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who mistakenly thought Giants receiver Mario Manningham would self-check himself out of the game, telling his defense late in the fourth quarter:

“This is still a Cruz and Nicks game. I mean, I know we’re right on them, it’s tight but those are still the guys. Make them go to Manningham, make them go to Pascoe. Let’s make sure we get Cruz and Nicks.”

(See video here. Starts at 1:32 mark)

First play of the very next drive — the Giants’ game-winning drive — Eli Manning hit Manningham down the sideline on that unforgettable 38-yard catch… right in front of Belichick himself, who subsequently failed on his challenging of the play.

Whoopsie daisy!

Gisele was wrong ripping the Patriots by saying her husband Tom Brady can’t throw and catch at the same time. She should have said he can’t throw and catch and coach the team at the same time.
