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 previews and I already can’t take much more of it.

FOXBORO - Vince Wilfork walked across the Gillette Stadium locker room yesterday, the slowest man in the building....
Bill Belichick's consistent approach to preparation is the cornerstone of the coaching that has brought the New England Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl in 11 years.
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...

Bill Belichick won't forecast how ready Gronkowski would be for Super Bowl
We're still 10 days away from the last game of the 2011 NFL season.

Unlike that matchup...
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...
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. According to the article, the finalists are Jason Licht from the Patriots (the guy it is reported has absolutely no control under Bill Belichick) and Phil Emery of the Chiefs...
